This time of year, month-over-month inventory increases about 5% – 10% each month until the peak which is typically in February. It is more important to note, though, that the year-over-year number is up 10% – 13% for the past four months. Buyer’s market… This was not the case in 2017.


New listings added to the market are still outpacing the otherwise strong closed sale activity by a wide margin swinging the market in favor of the buyer with now nearly nine months of inventory available. This will continue to grow deeper into a buyer’s market.


The combined inventory for Naples, Bonita Springs, and Estero is now ~8,200 properties for sale. New construction properties typically make up 12% – 15% of the MLS listings.
