Naples Housing Market Update
2023 January Naples Housing Market Update
The Naples housing market update showed 555 properties sold for just over $900 Million. The largest sale was for $19.9 million in Port Royal. Additionally, the luxury market remained strong, with 253 properties sold at or above $1 Million compared to 165 sales during December.
Sales within the city limits of Naples, dominated the list of largest home sales for the month. Fourteen of the fifteen highest priced Naples properties were located in Port Royal, Olde Naples, Aqualane Shores, Moorings and Royal Harbor (34102 and 34103 zip codes). Prices ranged from $6.5 million to $19.9 million.
The Naples housing market remained stable in terms of value as evidenced by the increase in the median closed price which went from $540,000 up to $600,000 or an 11.1 percent increase over January of last year and up from $575,000 in December.
Once again, inventory more than doubled over this time last year. It rose from 1,112 to 2,699 properties for sale. However, similar to other Southwest Florida cities, the numbers are very misleading. In January 2019, before the pandemic Naples had 7,972 properties for sale for sale which was over 9 months worth of supply. Inventory ended the month at 34 percent of what we normally have during this time of year.
So what is contributing to the lack of inventory? First, we had a record year for visitors last year with almost 138 million people visiting the Sunshine state. As a result, more airlines added direct flights to Fort Myers’ Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW). Recently, airlines have announced new direct flights making it even easier for people to travel to Southwest Florida including flights from Providence (RI), Hartford (CT), Austin (TX) and Wilmington (DE). Direct flights from more destinations make our area an even more desirable place for a second home or vacation home which is easy to get to.
Also, a recent study by The Boyd Company named Naples a top city for corporate headquarters. Why? With no state income tax, low corporate taxes, attractive lifestyle amenities and desirable housing for company executives, it puts Naples at the top of the list.
Another notable trend is the relocation of corporate headquarters to Florida. Billionaire and developer Stephen Ross says the ‘Wealth Exodus’ to S. Florida will continue. People are relocating from the Northeast for jobs, not just retirement. It is a combination of tax issues, security issues and overall ease of living.
Finally, we were recently ranked the Best Overall State for Retirement by SmartAsset due to favorable taxes, pleasant climate, and reasonable cost of living. Certainly the cost of living in some areas of the state are more affordable than others.
So while I don’t have a crystal ball to predict the future, there continue to be signs Florida remains a prime destination for not only retirees, those on the verge of retiring and those looking to relocate their businesses to our area. Recession or not, inventory is low, and demand is high. The continued lack of supply will lead to higher home prices for the foreseeable future.
