In the Naples neighborhoods I follow the upper hand falls clearly on the side of the seller in nearly all Naples, Florida luxury real estate segments.
During the 2013 and 2014 season, acceptance of Naples, Florida real estate values was evident among the majority of the buyer prospect base I encountered. Most buyers by this point are making fairly quick decisions on moving forward with a Naples, Florida real estate purchases or preparing to wait years until the Naples, Florida real estate market levels out. Naples Florida real estate sales are expected to be at a several year high if not break records across the market. I am already updating my Naples, Florida real estate website to reflect recent record breaking sales in Naples, Florida luxury communities.
I predicted we would lose roughly 15-20% of our buyer prospect base last year due to the tightening of our market and/or the increase in value yet sales in the luxury real estate market are still on the rise. The mindset of some of the buyer prospect base I have encountered are once again becoming more open to some of our competing markets either within Collier County, Florida or outside Collier County as a whole. Some buyers who are attracted to Florida simply can't wrap their mind around increasing values. It is very common for a large portion of our Naples, Florida luxury buyers to push up in price to get what they want compare to settle and not get what they want because of budget constraints. It is also incredibly common these buyers are either paying cash or writing contract without mortgage contingencies. If you are preparing to write an offer with a mortgage contingency in our luxury locations, your offer will be considered weaker than most of your competition.
In sectors of the Naples, Florida luxury market, properties are difficult to find due to inventory shortages. There has been a great push for more new construction in locations like Port Royal, Aqualane Shores, Park Shore, Moorings, Coquina Sands and Olde Naples. The magnitude of some of these properties surpasses anything that has ever been built speculatively in Naples, Florida to date. Pocket listings are becoming a trend as well. While some fabulous Naples, Florida homes are on the open market, some of the most luxurious properties are available through private sale only. You can contact me direct to find out which of our most luxurious properties can be acquired. Not all new construction offers the same quality and can be readily identified by a trained eye but location and price should not be the only factors you consider to equate quality.

I am seeing lots of new agents entering the market who are not properly prepared to orchestrate a transaction successfully and are not pricing properties as well as they should be.
