pelican marsh: Naples Florida Snapshot Report - 09/21/13 05:12 AM
Hello Naples Friends,

pelican marsh: More Foreclosures Coming To Naples? - 12/10/12 12:23 PM
The short answer to, "is there going to be more foreclosures in Naples"? Is yes.  It's normal for there to be some level of distressed properties in our market. In fact, there are currently 159 foreclosures on the market which represents 2.9% of the overall market. But if you are primarily interested in Naples luxury real estate, I wouldn't get too excited.  There are only 2 properties listed over $1,000,000 that are being advertised as foreclosures. That represents .0003% of the total active Naples real estate inventory.  One is in Grey Oaks the other is located in Naples Boat Club. Neither … (0 comments)

pelican marsh: Naples Real Estate Now - 7/25/2012 - 07/25/12 02:04 PM
I was contacted yesterday by a correspondent who’s preparing to write a segment on the current Naples real estate market. When she calls I always try to give her accurate, cutting edge information only a few may have already realized.  Here’s what I told her:
 
If last year’s big Naples real estate story was dwindling inventories, this year’s big story will probably be about the turn towards a seller’s market, smaller list price to sales price ratios and higher pricing.
 
Naples Real Estate Buyers: Get Strategic!  Up until now it’s been fairly easy to march into any Naples neighborhood … (1 comments)

pelican marsh: Naples Real Estate Cyber Monday! - 11/29/10 08:39 AM
When most people think Cyber Monday, I doubt seriously anybody is wondering what kind of discount they can get on a Naples property by purchasing online today...in fact I'll bet that most people wouldn't even imagine clicking their way to purchasing a property in most places. Of course the more tech savvy the town is, the more house purchasing click happy buyers are but when many people think, "Naples Florida", we're barely what many would consider tech advanced.  In fact, I once saw on Fox News that Naples was at town rated "least likely to tweet".  Being @NaplesSmartGirl on Twitter, I … (2 comments)

pelican marsh: Pelican Marsh Florida Update - 07/15/10 02:20 PM
A nice selection of Pelican Marsh Naples Florida has experienced some terrific activity lately! It appears the listing inventory in Pelican Marsh as a whole has leveled!  Some areas in Pelican Marsh have already seen leveling and pricing has already started to rise.  There are still some Pelican Marsh deals to be had too but word of caution to Pelican Marsh buyers, if you've been waiting for the best deal...that window may be closing or in the case of some Pelican Marsh locations...that window is already shut.  This is great news for some Pelican Marsh home owners who have been waiting … (2 comments)

pelican marsh: A Bay Laurel at Pelican Marsh Gem! - 05/05/09 10:01 AM
I've had the luxury of showing a home a few times this season in Bay Laurel at Pelican Marsh I think deserves special recognition.  I've sold real estate for 13 years and by now I'll admit, it takes something great to capture my attention.  Couple that with the fact that I'm usually not awarded the right to an opinion when I show (because it's not my opinion that counts when buyers are selecting properties to purchase) and well after awhile many houses sort of run together.
Bay Laurel at Pelican Marsh is a GREAT subdivision within Pelican Marsh.  I like it … (2 comments)

pelican marsh: Naples Florida Real Estate Update January 11th - 01/11/09 08:39 PM
Just wanted to take a quick minute to share some of the trends I'm seeing in the Naples Florida real estate market. 
Price is definitely king right now with a majority of the sales traffic being awarded to the lower ended properties for the first time in a few years.  This is actually a sign of a recovering market although sales statistics won't prove that til later.
This also means if you are looking in the areas most sought after in the Naples Florida region for example:
Old Naples
Park Shore
Moorings
Pelican Bay
Pelican Marsh
To name a few... you … (8 comments)

pelican marsh: Pelican Marsh Naples Florida - It Was A Great Day For Golf! - 10/16/08 09:15 PM
After previewing a Pelican Marsh home for a customer coming to Naples this weekend, I thought I'd drop by the clubhouse and golf course to see what was going on.  Armed with video camera in hand, I was hoping to get some shots of the neighborhood just in case the staff would be nice enough to allow it and guess what...they couldn't have been more accommodating!  Everybody was SO nice! 
So, I took a ride...I've shown and sold properties in Pelican Marsh for years now and feel very in tune with the real estate aspect but I must admit...I'm not a golfer.  This … (2 comments)

pelican marsh: Yep, I'm still here selling Naples, Florida! - 06/21/08 04:31 PM
As my close followers know...I study my website hits constantly.  Oh, I am ridiculously addicted to wanting to know who's looking at what page and how they're finding my site, what keywords they're using, which search engines, how long they're surfing around.  I just think it is so interesting.  It also helps me understand what's on prospective buyers minds. 
What's even more interesting is the bits of information I've been able to pick up along the road.  I have a few people I know who are watching the market closely and I can tell when they've been checking stuff out because they've … (5 comments)

pelican marsh: Naples, Florida Buyers Say And Do The Craziest Things! - 05/19/08 06:24 PM
You gotta wonder what goes on in the minds of the people we come across.  For example, I should be on my 3rd week of hibernation had this years' real estate traffic turned out to be like last years' traffic but no, I'm still really busy with existing and new customers just itching to buy real estate in Naples, Florida.
I spent nearly the entire week with clients from Switzerland who have narrowed their sites on a particular waterfront property in the Moorings.  Not to mention I tried to juggle the time I had left between a batch of both new and existing customers looking … (5 comments)

pelican marsh: Naples, Florida Real Estate Trends...The Latest-Purchasing-Site Unseen - 02/08/08 05:45 PM
Anyone spending anytime in real estate learns quickly that everything trends.  If one person is looking for a beach front condo...3 more people are contacting me about the same thing.  Pelican Bay and Bay Colony is trending hot right now as far as that goes but this post isn't about Where Naples, Florida buyers are purchasing.  This post is more about How Naples, Florida buyers are purchasing.
Site-unseen offers were something we saw back in 2005 when everything was hot, hot, hot when properties were on the market for mere minutes compared to days and months so site-unseen offers were more of … (5 comments)

pelican marsh: I'm Sorry But That Condo In Pelican Marsh Is Under Contract! - 01/21/08 03:26 PM
It's starting...the calls from people up north who have been hovering over Naples, Florida waiting for prices to change...are calling on listings they saw at excellent prices that are now under contract. 
I wrote a post last week about how quite a few of the best priced properties in Pelican Bay had recently gone under contract and I think I need to extend the alert to other areas in and around Naples, Florida.
Many of Naples, Florida best priced properties in PRIME locations are starting to disappear. 
Specifically, there was a unit in Arielle at Pelican Marsh listed for $339,000 that just went … (2 comments)

pelican marsh: I Know You're There...I Can Hear You Breathing! - 01/17/08 01:08 PM
Remember that movie "Sixteen Candles"?  Samantha's grandfather answered her phone late one

night...when the caller didn't say anything he said, "I know you're there...I can hear you breathing".  That's the feeling I get sometimes when I see specific hits on my website. 
Due to the fabulous technology brought to me by Google Analytics, it is now possible to review not only the terms people use to find my website but it also tell me how many pages they looked at...what town they are in, what pages they reviewed etc.  The only thing it doesn't tell me is "who" they are....which at times can be so intriguing...which leads me … (41 comments)

pelican marsh: Naples, Florida Doesn't Kiss and Tell! - 08/21/07 12:59 PM
Why would someone want to own a piece of Naples real estate?  It just occurred to me...who wouldn't want to own property here, especially if they were famous?  I did a few searches on the net and really couldn't find too much regarding the famous people who own real estate in Naples, Florida.  In fact on Wikipedia.org there are only 4 "notable residents" listed.  Why?  Is it that our residents don't get caught up in the hype or that we don't have very many paparazzi running around town?  Is it that our Naples real estate agents respect the rights and privacy … (5 comments)

pelican marsh: Estates at Bay Colony Update - 08/13/07 11:33 PM
The Estates at Bay Colony is truly a remarkable subdivision located in Pelican Marsh. 
Currently there are 10 homes listed in the Estates at Bay Colony ranging from $3,250,000 to $6,999,000 and although mls shows there are 3 closed sales in 2007, one is actually hard to consider a true sale since the builder refinanced the property himself and moved in personally. 
Debbie Lohan is the Memberhip Director at the Bay Colony Golf Club.  She has had lots of activity this summer which is somewhat unusual for this time of year.  If you're interested in World Class Golf, you may want to check into it.  … (0 comments)
