Naples Real Estate
January 2016 Market Report
Home sales in Naples slipped in January when compared to a year ago. Year over year, pending sales dropped 23 percent in January, to 847 from 1,103, while closed sales were down 11 percent, to 571 from 645.
Here’s a closer look at how real estate in Naples played out in January 2016.
Despite the slowdown in sales, home prices continued to rise to a median of $340,000 in January from, an 8 percent bump up from $315,000 in the prior year.
Single-family homes saw the biggest increase in prices, to $425,000 from $372,000, a 14 percent rise. Condo prices rose more modestly, up 5 percent to $278,000 from $265,000.
As has been the case for months, prices rose most dramatically in the under-$300,000 price range, up 21 percent to $217,000 from $180,000.
Pat Pitocchi, past NABOR president, noted that concern about the economy dampened the home buying enthusiasm that has been at play for many months. “We felt the craziness of the stock market and oil prices — they sent shivers through the [housing] market,” she said. “People said, hey, wait a minute, let’s stop and think.”
