Naples, Fla. (October 19, 2018) – One year after Hurricane Irma, overall closed sales in Naples increased 62 % to 644 homes in September of 2018 compared to 398 closed sales of homes in September of 2017. According to broker analysts, this impressive increase in month over month sales is a result of the effect of the hurricane when homes sales halted following the massive storm.
“The September Market Report shows how resilient and desirable our market is,” said Lauren U. Melo, PA, Licensed Real Estate Broker with Florida’s Realty Specialists. “A 3 % increase in pending and closed sales, year over year, is strong considering the reduced sales activity during the troubled period following the hurricane. This was when many sellers were making repairs caused by the hurricane. The September statistics show that our market is in a good position to see positive activity for the fourth quarter.” Here are the major points of this Naples real estate market report for the 3rd Quarter of 2018:
Overall pending sales in the third quarter are up 20 % closed sales are up 13 % the median closed price is up 3 % inventory is up 4 % and the days on market decreased 1 %.

“Strong demand from buyers, coupled with a lack of for-sale inventory, continues to have an impact on rising median prices in many local housing markets,”. “Home sellers continued to get more of their original asking price at the closing table. Sellers of existing single-family homes in May received 96.7 percent (median percentage) of their original listing price, while those selling townhouse-condo properties received 95.1 percent (median percentage).
