News for Marco Island, FL - October 27th, 2015 5:27am
This year has been without a doubt a seller’s market. The summer has been “sizzling” temperature wise as well as market activity. The availability of quality properties is shrinking, as the inventory is not being replaced with similar new listings. Buyers who are looking for that gem are required to make quick decisions. Statistically, 60% - 70% of all real estate sales are “cash” which means no financing and no contingencies. We have seen a gradual up-tick of the List-to-Sell ratio, which indicates that Sellers are not willing to accept much less than 3%-5% off their asking price. The number of days on market is coming down progressively as anxious buyers gobble up available listings.

Value - Marco Island continues to be at least 30% more affordable than similar properties in the Naples area. Waterfront homes can be as much as 50% more affordable. With the rapid addition of amenities at the Collier Boulevard and 41 intersection, Marco Island is not going to be far-removed from new shopping and dining facilities. All of this will add value to our Island and make our community more desirable.

Naples/Marco Island sales were amazing this winter, probable due to being voted #1 Island in America and #4 in the world for vacation, according to Trip Advisor. It could also have been the extreme cold weather in the Midwest and Northeast. Single family home prices rose 26.6% in the metro area, to a median of $379,900, in the first quarter compared with a year earlier-by far the fastest performance of all cities in the State of Florida, according to Florida Realtors. Unfortunately Inventory has declined so now is the time to come down to Naples/Marco Island and buy your piece of paradise!
