Pelican Bay – Naples FL –  Late yesterday I was once again asked when I thought the real estate bubble would burst in Florida. I answered by stating all the reasons I outlined in my previous blog entries. This afternoon I read the article below and thought, “How true!”

Source: Study: Out-of-Town Buyers Have More Money

Within the State of Florida locals are having a hard time competing with out-of-town buyers. Out of town buyers coming into Miami have 25.1% higher budget to spend then the locals. According to the article people coming from States with high income taxes are willing to spend over list for a property because they feel they are getting a deal.

As of this morning, there are only 17 listings in Pelican Bay. There is currently only one listing under 1 million dollars. It was listed late Monday. When I called the listing agent Tuesday morning she told me there were several offers on the unit but nothing had been finalized yet. I am going to guess it will sell over list price.

If you are thinking of selling your Pelican Bay unit, now is the time to do so. The problems of finding another place in Pelican Bay is another issue. While you’ll get a great price for your unit, the cost of what you’d like to buy will have gone up too. There is also the issue of finding a new home. If you sell your place you may have to make arrangements for interim housing until you can find a home you want.

The market here is still strong and with so little inventory, there are few indications that real estate prices will decrease.

Study: Out-of-Town Buyers Have More Money

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – As I was reading through my trade e-mails this morning I ran across the following article I thought you might find interesting:

Source: COVID Migration: Who’s Moving to Fla. and Why?

My first reaction was “YIKES!”.  While this article talks about Florida in general, it also takes a look at Palm Beach County.  I would LOVE to see the stats on Collier County.  Just based on the traffic I’ve been driving through in the last couple of months, I can tell we have an uptick in Collier County residents.

According to the above article, “More than 547,000 people exchanged out-of-state driver’s licenses last year for ones with Sunshine State addresses. ” It appears that residents of New York and New Jersey are leaving and taking up residence in Florida. Taxes up North, being able to work from home and Florida’s beautiful weather are all factoring into why people are moving into Florida.

Lack of inventory and higher prices seem to be a by product of people selling their high priced homes up North and purchasing here.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article for my neighborhood blog with my thoughts of the market in Pelican Bay.  You can find that at:  https://lambiance.wordpress.com/2022/01/27/my-crystal-ball/

As of this morning there were only 16 listings in ALL of Pelican Bay. Only 2 of those listings are under a million dollars. In the last 7 days there have been 19 pending sales in Pelican Bay.  17 of those pending listing were all over one million dollars. 6 of those pending listings were over 2 million dollars.

As I read the article I referenced above I kept thinking that all those buyers that are coming out of those expensive homes in high taxing States are definitely pushing the prices up here in Pelican Bay. If you have been toying with the idea of selling your Pelican Bay home, now is the time to do it.

We live in a beautiful place. It’s a joy to go down to our beach and enjoy the sunsets.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – In the course of reading my trade e-magazines this morning I ran across this article that talks about people’s perception of the housing bubble. It’s an interesting article I thought you would enjoy reading. Until we can get some more inventory in Pelican Bay, I don’t see the prices going down anytime soon. As of this morning there were only 17 units for sale in ALL of Pelican Bay. Only 3 of those listings were under 1 million.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Each morning I read through various trade articles that come my way. Occasionally I share them with you. The one below really hit a cord with me.

Source: 3 in 10 Sellers Say Security Cameras Have Monitored Buyers

Today’s technology makes it possible for Sellers to record showings on their homes. Florida does have rules about recording. If you are a buyer looking at properties remember not to express any opinions about the home you are viewing until you are in the car with your Realtor. You do not want the Seller to know just how much you LOVE their home before you even write an offer.

Sellers, be prepared to hear all sorts of things about your home. The kitchen countertop you agonized picking out until you found the “perfect” one might end up being not so perfect for the buyers coming through your home. Listen to the buyers comments. If every buyer complains about the same thing, you’ll need to change it or offer a credit at closing to compensate. If you do have video and audio recording equipment in your home talk to your Realtor and/or your attorney about the laws involving recording.

As of this morning, there were only 33 listings in the entire complex of Pelican Bay. This should give you some perspective how low the inventory  is in Pelican Bay. Curious about the real estate market? Here are the statistics posted by Naples Board of Realtors for June 2021 . Stats for Pelican Bay would be in the Naples Beach area on page 16.

Wherever you are enjoying your summer, know the beach at Pelican Bay is waiting for your return.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  My husband and I have lived in Pelican Bay for 21 years.  We rode out hurricanes Georges, Charlie and Wilma.  When hurricane Irma started to appear on the scene, I took one look at her and said to my husband, Don, ” I have NEVER seen a hurricane like this!  WE ARE OUT OF HERE!”

Don put up our hurricane shutters on September 5th and we were on the road with our friend Rosa on September 6th.  We were headed to Gainesville where we would determine which way we should drive based on Irma’s latest projections. A snail moved faster on I-75 than we did.  A 6 hour drive took 9 hours. By the time we decided to take back roads to I-10 and head West across the Panhandle, we could only located a hotel room in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.  A 8 hour drive took over 13 hours.  If I have learned anything about the evacuation process it is:

  • Scan your important documents into the cloud DAYS before you decide to leave.  I waited to do this the day before I left.
  • Make sure your tank is full of gas before a hurricane gets too close to Florida.
  • Don’t assume any bathroom you might use has any toilet paper or soap.  I was happy I packed toilet paper and Wet Ones.
  • Make multiple hotel reservations in as many cities as you think you might have to evacuate. The first night in Gainesville, I should have started booking hotels north and West of the Panhandle.
  • Take your passports.  You might need them for re-entry.
  • A Costco bag is perfect to store water and sandwiches.

We were gone a total of 11 days.  We had issues getting hotel rooms on our way back to Naples.  We were lucky that our condo sustained no damage in the storm.  Don didn’t want to take the hurricane shutters down until he saw which way hurricane Maria was headed.  As I type this blog entry, Don is taking down the hurricane shutters.

We drove around Pelican Bay today and visited the North and South beaches.  People have been worried how they fared during the storm.  They fared well.  Up and down Pelican Bay BLVD are MASSIVE amounts of tree debris.  The mounds on tree debris remind me of drifts of snow piled so high at an intersection you couldn’t see traffic around the drift!  Here’s some photos I snapped today at the beaches:

All and all I think the beaches look great!  Pelican Bay employees were down at both beaches today fixing and cleaning the pavilions.  I am looking forward to being able to swim in the Gulf again.  I hope that happens soon!

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –   Did you ever think that living closer to a certain grocery store would affect property values? While reading the article below this morning, I kept thinking about how convenient Pelican Bay is to both Whole Foods and Traders Joe’s.  Property values around these stores are higher in Naples.  Aldi is a bit further East of Pelican Bay and there will be less expensive properties.  Hope you find this article as interesting as I did!

Source: RE investors should look for homes close to ALDI

Inventory in Pelican Bay is pretty scarce.  As of this morning we had:

  • 32 Active Low-Rise Listings
  • 14 Active Mid-Rise Listings
  • 58 Active High-Rise Listing

While we have low inventory, Buyers are still pretty cautious in making a buying decision.
