Market Resiliency Fuels Home Sales in August

Naples, Fla. (September 22, 2023) – Inventory is selling quickly, and prices are stable in the Naples housing market. According to the August 2023 Market Report by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), closed sales of homes in Naples during August increased 17 percent compared to July closed sales, and 1.9 percent to 702 closed sales from 689 closed sales in August 2022. Brokers who reviewed the Market Report are confident sales during the second half of 2023 could outperform sales during the second half of 2022, unless we experience another major disaster like a hurricane. Another promising factor that supports this expectation is the steady rate of new listings, which increased 2.6 percent in August, and contributed to the 7.2 percent increase in inventory for the month.

“I see the top of the last economic cycle occurring in the first quarter of 2022,” said Cindy Carroll of Carroll & Carroll Appraisers & Consultants, LLC. “This is when 18 months of rapid appreciation in most market sectors came to a halt. Historically, a period of correction follows a market peak. However, in most market areas, property values remain stable or have returned to our long-term historical trend of 8 percent per year appreciation. I am searching daily for evidence of wide-spread market decline but have
yet to find it.”

The median closed price in August increased 5.2 percent to $605,000 from $575,000 in August 2022. Though according to the August report, activity in the condominium market fueled many of the increases reported. As such, there was a 7.7 percent increase in the median closed price in the condominium market compared to a 2.2 percent decrease in median closed price for the single-family home market; a 10.1 percent increase in new condominium listings compared to a 3 percent decrease in new single-family home listings; and a 25.5 percent increase in condominium inventory compared to a 3.7 percent decrease in single-family home inventory.

Typically, one of the slower months for activity, August’s showings decreased 19 percent to 21,269 showings from 26,191 showings in August 2022, which might also explain the 9.4 percent decrease in pending sales in August to 811 from 895 in August 2022.

“Days on market have been hovering around 50 since December 2022,” said Adam Vellano, a Naples Sales Manager at Compass Florida. “Before the pandemic, it was at 90-100 days.” For August, the report showed 54 days on market compared to 31 days on market in August 2022.
