Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  While you shouldn’t panic if the house doesn’t sell the moment you list it, you should begin to worry if the months start flying by without any real offers.

Source: 11 Reasons Why Your Home Isn’t Selling

The current market we are in is not one where you should get too aggressive with the listing price.  You’ll note the number one reason properties do not sell is due to over valuing the home.  It is so important to have your home priced right.  Buyers are out in the market looking at all sorts of different homes.  Based on what they have seen, they can tell an over priced listing in a heart beat.

Number 6 is also important.  If your home is vacant, it really can benefit from being staged.  A lot of Buyers have no vision when it comes to furniture placement.  An empty home doesn’t convey the “feeling” of a place that has been loved and enjoyed.  Money spent on staging is money well spent.

If you have any questions on these items, please feel free to call me at 239-594-2780 or e-mail me at: Lynn@NaplesBuys.com

Pelican Bay – Naples FL – It’s that time of year again.  If you live in Pelican Bay full-time, you will want to be prepared in case a hurricane strikes. June 2-4 you can shop tax-free for certain hurricane preparedness items.  Here’s an article that gives you information on what you would want to bring to a shelter & what items will be tax-free. I hope you find it helpful.

One item that I added to my checklist after Hurricane Wilma was a thermos of coffee.  Wilma struck early in the morning & we lost power. Coffee would have been much appreciated that morning.

Memorial Day found the Marker36 beach packed with people out for the BBQ and beach time. My husband and I enjoyed a swim in the 86 degree Gulf waters. The water was crystal clear. We could hear the music brought in for the BBQ while we were in the water. When the “Star Spangled Banner” played, I thought about all the men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. Life in Pelican Bay is good.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –   What is happening in the  low-rise condominium market in Pelican Bay?  Let’s take a look at the first quarter 2016 low-rise closed sales and compare those numbers with the 2017 first quarter closed sales.

LOW-RISES

2016

2017

# of Sales

25

29

Average Sales Price

$648,120.00

$660,448.00

Median Sales Price

$639,000.00

$540,000.00

You can see that there was a modest increase in the average sales price and number of units sold in the first quarter of 2017.  The median sales price did take a bit of a dip.

As of today, there are 53 low rise units on the market in Pelican Bay.  We are in a “normal” market with an inventory that could last 6 months. If you are planning on selling a low-rise condo in Pelican Bay it is important to keep yourself up-to-date with current market conditions.  I don’t really think this is the time for Sellers to get too aggressive with their pricing if they really want to sell.
