Naples Luxury Housing Market Update

Naples Luxury Housing MarketThe Naples Luxury housing market continues to be a top destination for wealthy home buyers. What’s driving the demand?

First, over the past year and a half, we’ve seen a significant increase in wealth driven by gains in the stock market, higher 401(k) plans and even cryptocurrency. In fact, the number individuals with a net worth of $5 million and up who own real estate in the $1 million to $5 million price range has increased 180% over a three-year period.

Nationwide luxury homes purchased between January and August 2021 in this range increased 142% for single-family homes and 129% for attached properties compared to the same period in 2019.

Second, the work from home trend is here to stay. According to a recent Gallup Poll, approximately 70 percent of employees who are currently working from home want to continue to do so either full time or part-time. Additionally, almost half of remote workers (49%) want to work from home full-time. And of those who are working in the office, about 37 percent would prefer to work remotely part-time.

So why do workers want to continue to work from anywhere? The Gallup Poll cited the top motivators where a lack of commute time, improvements to their wellbeing and the flexibility.

Luxury home office to work remotelyAs we work with clients, many are looking for larger single-family homes with plenty of space for a home office. With the flexibility to work from anywhere, luxury home buyers have shared they are also looking for a second or third home with access to a wide array of amenities.

Luxury golf communities offer a wide array of amenities, and since Naples is known as the golf capitol of the US it has made our area a prime destination for people looking to enhance their lifestyle.

As the world has evolved over the past two years, private country clubs have undergone significant renovations to enhance their club amenities. From world-class fitness centers, to tennis, pickleball, bocce ball, swimming, spas and new poolside cafe’s with casual dining options.

Ultimately, the increases in wealth in addition to changes in lifestyle choices continue to drive luxury home sales, especially in resort destinations such as Naples. For a list of luxury golf communities which will fit your lifestyle, contact us at 239-370-0892.
