It’s a great real estate time for us here in the Naples and Bonita Springs area, even the weather has cooperated lately attracting more visitors trying to avoid the heat wave up north. We’ve been enjoying a steady positive sales momentum since the beginning of 2012. Our current overall inventory of 5,074 hasn’t been this low since NABOR® began tracking the statistics in January of 2007 when inventory was 10,864. And with the low inventory we’ve experienced a more balanced and stable market, and in some areas an increase in sales prices over last year’s.
If you are thinking of buying a home in Naples, this might be the last call to action and an opportunity this summer to still negotiate a deal. As they always say in real estate, “time is of the essence”.
