Posts Tagged ‘Pelican Bay Naples FL Blog’


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.

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 – Looking through my trade e-mails this morning, I saw this article and thought I should share it with you. This article discusses how having an older roof may make it harder to find home owners insurance.

Source: Can You Afford a New Roof?

Right now properties are selling so fast it makes one’s head spin. Some of these contracts do not include home inspections because Buyers want to make the deal more appealing to the Sellers. I can see a whole lot of unhappy Buyers trying to find home owners insurance on a house with an older roof. If you are looking for a home, it might not be a bad idea to have an attorney explain what will happen if you cannot obtain homeowners insurance under the contract you’ll be using BEFORE you even write a contract.

Inventory still remains low in Pelican Bay. As of this morning there were only 31 active listings in all of Pelican Bay. The Naples Board of Realtors recently released the June 2021 Statistics .  When you click on the link, scroll down to the Naples Beach section. Pelican Bay is part of this section. You’ll be able to see what’s happening with single family homes and condominium sales.

Even though we are going through our rainy season, our Pelican Bay beach is still a beautiful place to enjoy.

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.
