Cap Ferrat at Pelican Bay is one of my most favorite Pelican Bay high-rises! Current Cap Ferrat at Pelican Bay real estate statistics are as follows:
Current Cap Ferrat at Pelican Bay inventory sits at 17 months which is slightly over-supplied at this time.  This is not a surprise since Pelican Bay high-rise inventory is the last segment of property to recover from the down turn. Evidence of a buyer's market has been evident here by checking out the list price to sales price ratio coming in at 87% which is actually lower than the Pelican Bay average.  There have been 2 penthouses in Cap Ferrat that have sold during the past 12 months and there are still 2 penthouses available.  They're magnificent if you haven't had a chance to see them....and if you're going to look at those then you might as well schedule some time to take a peek at the Montenero at Pelican Bay penthouse for sale too...it is AMAZING!  

If you're a potential Cap Ferrat Buyer:  Cap Ferrat has definitely picked up speed this past 12 months with the 7 sales....the year before that there were only 3 so I think if the market continues the way it's going, buyers will quickly lose their edge here.  Again, I almost feel silly for saying something like that because of the current state of our economy but I would feel even sillier for saying you have plenty of time to drag your feet.  You have some great options for negotiating strategy so give me a shout and lets get started!

If you're considering selling your Cap Ferrat unit:  As you know the Cap Ferrat market has been over-supplied for quite some time as it is now.  If many of your neighbors don't decided to hop on the sale train this season, we may see the tables turn towards slightly favoring the seller sometime mid season.  You'll want to make sure you're priced well and have an aggressive agent with, "out of the box" marketing strategies to help you get your property sold.  It's time to be creative, technical and enthusiastic about attracting your buyer.  Call me for some details of how we can help!

I hope you enjoyed this Cap Ferrat at Pelican Bay report.  Please let me know how else we can be of assistance!

Strand at Bay Colony Naples Florida Update

Strand at Bay Colony
The Strand at Bay Colony is the most luxurious and exclusive enclave in Bay Colony and is one of Naples most coveted locals.  Today 2 of the 12 Strand at Bay Colony homes are available ranging over 10 to nearly 13 million dollars.   The tail end of Bay Colony Drive looks like something out of a European old world village but few people seldom get the luxury of a drive by since all of these homes sit behind a second gate within Bay Colony.  Some residents with units in buildings like Marquesa at Bay Colony, Salerno at Bay Colony and Toscana at Bay Colony and even Montenero at Pelican Bay can admire the Strand at Bay Colony from afar while Contessa at Bay Colony has a more up close and personal view of the exquisite architecture this haven has to offer. Don't be fooled though...even with the Contessa high rise as a neighbor, the Strand at Bay Colony still offers outstanding privacy to surroundings and pool areas. 

One of the attributes the Strand at Bay Colony has to offer is its location on the Naples beach.  The closest public access point is about a half mile starting at the Ritz Carlton and stopping at the first house in the Strand.  That's quite a stroll on the sand for most people and while you'll see many people walk the beach it's a tough jaunt if you think you're going to take your own beach chair and all the other stuff that makes for a great beach experience all the way down just so you can park it in front of one of these beauties. So while there is no private beach in Bay Colony or in Florida for that matter, it might as well be because it's quiet for the most part. 

Some who aren't familiar with the Strand would think 2 out of 14 homes currently listed might be cause for alarm...nah.  Let's face it, not everyone can stroke a check for 10+ mil and these sellers, I'm guessing, have the ability to wait for a real buyer.  While we're talking about real buyers, be prepared to demonstrate your ability to purchase.  You won't be entering any of these homes without the proper documentation.

For those of you who are skeptical about pricing and can stroke the check, the Strand at Bay Colony is worth taking a peek.  Historical figures show homes at Strand at Bay Colony have brought an average of $1,354 price per square foot overall since inception and values have remained steady.  It must be something about supply, demand and ability to hold.  Let's face it we're not talking about a large area and it's not likely to expand much from here.

For more information about Strand at Bay Colony or any Naples Beachfront real estate, contact me direct and I'll be happy to accommodate you.

Hope you're staying warm where you are and if not, there's a fix for that!
