Tidbits

“March was a huge month for high end pending sales,” said Mike Hughes, General Manager for Downing-Frye Realty, Inc. “We had 61 pending sales contracts above $1,000,000 and a sales volume for March of over $264,000,000. That is a 14 percent increase in volume over last March with slightly less pending sales contracts. We had 393 pending sales contracts this March compared to 402 last March. The high end market has shown great momentum over the last month. It’s been a solid winter season so far. Now we’re coming into a busy period where a lot of decisions will be made prior to winter visitors going back home.” Mike Hughes, Downing-Frye Broker. Excerpted from the April 2019 Downing-Frye Newsletter.


COMBINED INVENTORY – Naples, Bonita/Estero

Beginning the seasonal march downward… The inventory decreased month-over-month however, on a year-over-year basis it is ~9% higher. The overall high level of inventory is holding prices down, longer days on market are evident, and good opportunities exist for buyers.

CLOSED SALES – Naples, Bonita/Estero

Sales volume Up … – Following a very slow January, late month contracts and a rebound in new contracts for February resulted in a substantial jump up in March closed sales numbers. The combined overall closed sales volume for the Naples and Bonita-Estero markets showed an increase of 56% month-over-month but decrease of 4% on a year-over-year basis. The line charts for closed sales in both markets over a four year period clearly show a declining trend in sales activity.
