Naples Area – Real Estate Market Report – April 2020

Naples, Fl – May 22nd 2020 – Coronavirus slowed real estate market activity in April as expected during Florida’s safe-at-home restrictions. According to the April 2020 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island).
The good news is that – even during a pandemic – Naples home values are being maintained.  The report shows April’s overall percentage of current list price received increased .5%.  This figure represents what the buyer paid for their home compared to the seller’s listed sale price. In April, the contract price averaged 95.9% of list price. In comparison, during April 2019, the contract price averaged 95.4% of list price. This statistic demonstrates that homes in the Naples area did not lose their values during April, the worst month of the pandemic to date.  

 




 

 

 

 

 

Here are the main statistics of the report for April 2020 (compared to April 2019):

  • Overall closed sales decreased 28.6% to 838 closed sales compared to 1,173 closed sales in April 2019.

  • Inventory decreased as well in April by 29.1% to 5,394 homes compared to 7,605 homes in April 2019. The April report also confirms home values remain intact.

  • Median closed prices increased .3% in April to $340,000 from $339,000 in April 2019. Although there were slightly fewer price decreases in April than in March, still 1,654 or 31% of all listed properties experienced reductions in their offering price during April.

  • As people were urged to stay home in April, showings decreased to 9,420 from 22,862 in April 2019 (does not include virtual showings). As a result, pending sales in April decreased 53.6%, as was expected.

  • The desire for virtual home showings has risen rapidly. During video tours, agents become the eyes of the buyer. They’re talking more than they would on a traditional tour, pointing out things that would be obvious in person but aren’t as clear through a camera lens like the quality of workmanship on any repairs or whether a bedroom will fit a king-size bed. Virtual home tours are becoming the new first step in home buying.
