Pelican Bay, Naples FL – Last night, after months of waiting to see the new restaurant area at the North Beach, my husband and I joined mass humanity to see the grand opening of Marker 36.  Marker 36 is the new name for the Sandpiper Restaurant.  I have to say that this Realtor is very happy with the changes that were done.  The new restaurant has more of a “resort” feeling.  I snapped a few photos to give you an idea of how the new place looks.  It was difficult to get great photos as there were so many people in attendance last night.

New Hostess Area

The new hostess area is now located between the bar area and the outside dining area. There is now a half wall that separates the bar area from the outside dining area.

Outside Dining Area Marker 36

Marker 36’s outside dining area was packed with people last night.

 

Here we are looking from the exercise area towards the bar and outside dining area.

One feature I really like is that the wooden rails along the beach have been replaced with narrow metal rails which gives the area a more open feel.  The inside dining area has been nicely redone too.  All in all I think these changes are good ones for the restaurant and benefit our community.

I was only able to sample a couple of free appetizers as there were so many people in attendance last night.  I am looking forward to my first meal at Marker 36.  I sincerely hope that the food has improved over the food that had been served at the Sandpiper Restaurant.

I’d like to take a moment to wish you all a very Happy Holiday with best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Pelican Bay – Naples, Florida – I have just finished compiling the Pelican Bay real estate statistics for the first quarter of 2013. This past season has been a busy one so let’s see how the numbers looks in comparison to the first quarter of 2012. You might be surprised to see what happened!

FIRST QUARTER

2013

2012

# Units Sold

93

69

Average Days on Market

179

197

Median List Price of Solds

$725,000.00

$549,000.00

Median Sold Price

$675,000.00

$525,000.00

% List to Sale Differential

7.04%

7.73%

# Units Not Sold

48

68

With this CMA Statistics Report you can see at a glance that the number of units sold increased along with the median prices.  In addition, the average days on the market has decreased along with the list to sale differential. As of today, there are 190 active listings on the market in Pelican Bay.  Between 3/31/2012 -3/31/2013 there have been 379 closed sales. This means that Pelican Bay has an inventory that could last 6 months.  A “normal” market according to the National Association of Realtors is a market that has a 6 month inventory!

If you take a moment to click on the Closed Listings Report, you will see the popular price ranges stand out.  16 sales were under $399,900.00, while 16 sales were between $1,000,000.00 – $1,499,999.00. That’s a bit over a third of all the 93 sales!

The Market Statistics Report breaks down the sales by building type. Out of the 93 sales that occurred in the first quarter of 2013, FORTY-NINE of those sales were high-rise sales. That’s a little over half of all the sales in the first quarter of 2013!

The Market Statistics Report also shows us that the percentage of unsold listings decreased in every building type except for single family homes and attached villas. Average sales prices for the first quarter of 2013 increased in low rises and attached villas increased as compared to the first quarter of 2012.

Have you been thinking of selling your Pelican Bay property? Based on these figures you may want to think about putting your on the market. Our inventory is decreasing and our sales our increasing.

Are you waiting to purchase a home in Pelican Bay?  Based on these numbers, you might not want to wait too much longer.

Pelican Bay is a beautiful beach community that offers different homes at all sorts of price points. Why not start investigation this community to see if you want to call it home!

Wondering what the rest of the real estate market looks like in Naples?  Here’s the April 2013 statistics.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – On my walk down to the Sandpiper Beach in Pelican Bay yesterday afternoon, I was amazed at all the families enjoying the beach.  Just take a look at all the shoes left on the ramp leading to the beach!

View looking South. It almost looks as if there are umbrellas down to the Sandbar Beach, doesn’t it?

Here’s the view looking North……..

Easter Weekend in Pelican Bay

Where did you spend your weekend?

In a few short weeks, many of our residents will head back to their Northern homes and our beach will look deserted.  Watching our Northern residents leave is a bitter-sweet experience for me.  I’ll miss my Northern friends but I will enjoy being able to go to a restaurant without waiting for a table.

If you are thinking of buying a home or condo in Pelican Bay, try to plan a trip here in April or May.  This is a beautiful time of year and it is less crowded.  You’ll also have less competition for homes. I’d love to show you the benefits of owning in Pelican Bay!

FYI – For those of you who following the Clam Pass dredging saga, equipment was set up in Clam Pass to start dredging again on Friday.

Traditionally Easter week is a busy one in Pelican Bay. Last evening my husband Don and I drove to the Sandpiper Parking lot to park and walk down to the beach. Imagine our surprise when we saw the Sandpiper Parking lot almost filled!  People had parked in all sorts of inventive ways.  Don and I had arrived at the parking lot just as people were leaving the beach, so there were a few empty parking spaces.

Our tram drivers were working to accommodate all the residents and guests leaving the beach as well as those arriving to go to the beach.  All the trams that passed us were packed. Our tram system in Pelican Bay is a wonderful plus for our unique beach community.  Kudos to our tram drivers for the great job they do!

Even though it was a cloudy evening, Don and I decided to drive to the Sandpiper Parking lot and walk tonight.  Even a cloudy evening didn't stop residents from coming to the beach in Pelican Bay!

Not even a cloudy evening stopped residents from enjoying the Sandpiper beach. The restaurant was crowded as well as the bar area.  I find it delightful to see so many families enjoying our facilities.  On our walk back to the parking lot, I was able to introduce some children to our local Pelican Bay celebrity, the screech-owl that resides in the hollow space in a tree near the boardwalk .  It was a delight to see how much they enjoyed looking at the owl.

The Screech Owl in the Hallowed out tree in Pelican Bay is a Local Celebrity.

Pelican Bay is a wonderful place to live and a great place to experience the nature that surrounds us.  Walking along the berm and boardwalk in Pelican Bay I’ve seen alligators, otters, and all sorts of birds!  The kids always get a tremendous kick out of seeing the alligators.  If you are looking for a special community to call home, look no further, Pelican Bay in Naples FL is waiting for you and I’d be delight to help you find a home!
