January 2022 Newsletter

If you didn’t catch the Mansion Global article when I circulated it via social media, Naples and Southwest Florida continue to receive positive press…recently named the No. 1 luxury locale on The Wall Street Journal/ Emerging Housing Markets Index for 4th quarter 2021. 👏 Love the sub-heading For many smaller cities in the Sunshine State meeting demand has been like “drinking out of a fire hose”. As demand for real estate in SWFL continues to surge, buyers were hoping for a significant increase in homes for sale as January is typically the peak month for new listings. We did get some new supply but not nearly enough with 1,541 new listings in Naples/Bonita Springs/Estero, 27% less than in Jan 2021. Hopefully February and March will bring more properties to market! Enjoy January 2022 Newsletter which focuses on the Coquina Sands neighborhood, a hot locale for those looking to be close to the beach and Old Naples.

Please get in touch if you have any plans of coming down for a visit or to scope out properties, February is looking like it will be busy with a lot of folks headed this way!
