Naples real estate continues to improve.

I think Cindy Carroll of Carroll & Carroll Real Estate Appraisers summed it up best:

“We are seeing the gap between the list price and sale price narrowing in most market sectors. While a 10 to 12% discount off the list price was the norm 12 to 18 months ago, 5 to 7% (and less) is the current trend. This results from the continuing decrease in inventory and reflects sellers holding firm on their asking price. Buyers are realizing that the pool of available properties that meet their individual criteria is limited.”

Here are some highlights from second quarter 2012 when compared to second quarter 2011:

  • Overall second quarter Naples closed sales increased 4%
  • Overall average days on market decreased 2% to 185 in 2012
  • Listing inventory is down by at least 12% in all price categories
  • Closed sales in the Naples beach area increased 15%
  • Overall median closed price increased 9%
