Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – One of the many things I love about living in Pelican Bay is walking down to the beach after work to see sunset.  This evening’s sunset was just beautiful, as was the afterglow.

Pelican Bay – Naples FL –  Sunday afternoon I wanted to drive down to the Marker36 parking lot to walk down to the Marker36 beach. Imagine my surprise when I found the parking lot full. I then headed to the North parking lot & managed to find a spot because another car was pulling out. Work is still being done on the  Commons parking lot which is causing the other lots to fill up.

My friend & I had a lovely walk down to the beach. You can tell from the photo above, the beach was buzzing with activity.

On our way back, we saw this turtle soaking up the sun.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Today found me setting up showing appointments for out of town Buyers that are coming in on Monday and working on a market evaluation for a Seller who owns a low-rise in Pelican Bay.  In the process of doing the market evaluation, I calculated the real estate statistics for low-rises in Pelican Bay for the third quarter of 2014 in comparison to the third quarter of 2015. Here’s what I discovered:

3rd Quarter Stats

2014

2015

# of Sales

21

21

Average Sales Price

$409,137.00

$574,262.00

Median Sales Price

$388,000.00

$515,000.00

Days on Market

187

100

Close Price to List Price Ratio

94.1%

94.3%

It amazed me that we had the exact number of sales in both third quarters!  What is interesting is the jump in both the average and median sale prices for the quarters.  The days on the market decreased substantially from 2014 to 2015. Sellers are still getting roughly 94% of their asking prices.

As of today, there are only 27 low-rise listings on the market in Pelican Bay. That’s pretty slim pickings for Buyers and good news for Sellers.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Have you thought about owning a condo in Pelican Bay?  Have you wondered how much condos cost in Pelican Bay?  I was wondering about the most popular price range for low rise condos in Pelican Bay the other day and did some research.

From January 1st – November 1st 2015 there have been 101 low rise condo sales in Pelican Bay.  Here’s how they broke down by sales price:

Sales Price Range

Number of Sales

$200,000.00 – $299,999.99                     2
$300,000.00 – $399,999.99                   16
$400,000.00 – $499,999.99                   33
$500,000.00 – $599,999.99                   21
$600,000.00 – $699,999.99                   13
$700,000.00 – $799,999.99                     5
$800,000.00 – $899,999.99                     5
$900,000.00 – $999,999.99                     4
$1,000,000.00 +                     2

You can see by reviewing the chart that the most popular price range for a low rise in Pelican Bay is between $400,000.00 – $499,999.99 with 33 sales. As of today, there are only TWENTY-SIX low rise condos on the market in Pelican Bay. Only 8 of them are listed between $400,000.00 – $499,999.99.  I can guess that buyers in this price range will have a lot of competition trying to find a low rise condo in Pelican Bay.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Last night was Halloween.  My husband, Don, and I walked down to Marker 36 beach to see the sunset and Pelican Bay residents enjoying the Halloween festivities. 

The music was playing and people were dancing.  It appeared that everyone was having a good time.  Don and I didn’t quite make sunset but I did snap this afterglow photo.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Strange enough it seems as if I’ve become the dog whisperer of Pelican Bay. Some years back my tolerance level for waiting for the MLS to update the pet search fields cracked. I hired my nephew to create a list of all the subdivisions in Pelican Bay listing the pet restrictions for owners and tenants.  Find this list by clicking on Pet Policies in Pelican Bay.

Ben and Jenny pictured below and their owners are looking to buy a first-floor condo in Pelican Bay.  They would love to find one in San Marino!

 Ben and Jenny are looking for condo in Pelican Bay

The Pet Field is a drop down menu, it should be easy to fill out and search. Why is it so hard for a Realtor to search by the Pet Field in the MLS? 

  • The Pet Field is not a required field. – This means that an agent doesn’t have to fill in this field.
  • If the listing agent does decide to fill out the Pet Field, most of the time they choose WITH APPROVAL from the drop down menu.  This does not need any further action by the listing agent but does involve a tremendous amount of work by the Buyer’s agent.  The Buyer’s agent must call each listing agent or each property management office to find out the pet policy.
  • If the listing agent does decide to fill out the Pet Field with LIMITS, the agent must fill in the number of pets and the weight rule. This information comes from rules and regulations of the subdivision.  The listing agent should call the property management company to get the information if the rules are not available. 
  • Two other choices given in the drop down Pet Field menu are NOT ALLOWED & NO APPROVAL NEEDED.

In a perfect world, you would think that every listing agent would fill in the Pet Field with the proper information.  As of today, Pelican Bay has 70 listings. 30 of these listings read WITH APPROVAL.  Just by glancing at the WITH APPROVAL list, I know 16 of these listings have defined limits on pets.

Can you tell that this issue is a PET PEEVE of mine? A listing agent once told me that I shouldn’t have sent her an e-mail inquiring about the pet policy of her listing, I should have called her.  This was after I had made over 20 phone calls!  To say I was ready to strangle this clueless agent is an understatement. (Just kidding of course.)  FYI – I was working with a Buyer that was looking outside of Pelican Bay.

If you were selling  your place in Pelican Bay, wouldn’t you want the proper pet information on your listing?  It might just open up your listing to more buyers!

If you have a pet and want to buy in Pelican Bay, I would direct you to the pet policy list I prepared.  This is a good guideline on which subdivisions will take your pet.  I always double check the list for my Buyers as some complexes could have changed their policy.

If you have pets and are trying to rent in Pelican Bay, please check the pet policy list.  You’ll see that almost no condos allow tenants to have pets.

I found Brandy and Boomer a condo, along with their owners. Can I help you and your pets find a home in Pelican Bay?

HIGH-RISES:

Sales Price 2013–YTD 2014–YTD 1st Half 2015

Units Sold 33 28 27
Days on Market 293 202 139

As of today there are 9 active single family homes on the market in Pelican Bay.

Between 2013 and 2014 every single building design saw an increase in price. The first six months of this year saw an increase in price in every building category except for attached villas.

It is apparent that Pelican Bay has a lack of inventory.  I looked back at some of my old blog entries and found this one from 2011.  In 2011, we were averaging around 14 months to absorb all the listings on the market.  Now we have a shortage of listings.

What’s causing this shortage of listings?  While prices have climbed up, some Residents are still holding onto units that they bought at the height of the market. Other Residents have decided to sell their Northern homes and live in their Pelican Bay properties. These scenarios have also contributed to the lack of units for rent and the increase in rental prices.

Pelican Bay is a beautiful place to live. The amount of inquires I receive from Buyers looking to purchase in Pelican Bay tells me that other people also believe this is a beautiful place to live.

Pelican Bay – Naples FL – Whether you are planning on selling your Pelican Bay home to downsize or you are helping parents sell and downsize, this article offers some great advice:

7 Efficient Tips for Downsizers

As I read this article I was taken back to the time I helped my Mother-in-law downsize.  The OHIO rule; Only Handle It Once really proved a challenge.  We ended up with too many “maybe” piles.  Item #3 hit the mark with my too.  I vividly remember asking my Mother-in-law WHY she needed 15 casseroles.  We also had a rooster collection we had to weed through.  After helping Mom downsize, I thought about what my family might have to go through helping my husband and I downsize.  You’ll be happy to know that I own only 4 casseroles of various sizes that are frequently used.

Downsizing is a challenge. The more prepared you are for sorting, packing, shipping, moving, donating and throwing out items the easier the job will be.  Should you need help in selling your home. I’m here to help!
