I am looking for a single family home - for holiday use - in a gated community. Thanks a lot!

Help the community by answering this question:


Hi Ben,

If you would like to, lets talk about what is important to you in this home. Besides the typical criteria of size and make-up, is there a particular area of Naples you have in mind? How about what is meaningful, lifestyle wise (i.e. golfing, close proximity to beach, airport, etc). Are you interested in renting it out seasonally at all?

If you don't mind, send me a no obligation email describing in more detail what you envision, then I will be better informed to present you with a tighter fit. No need for you to sift through an unnecessary list of homes that won't meet your requirements. Have a great day!

You will find a link to access the Naples real estate agent MLS data base on my homepage. Trulia does not give a realistic view of all the available properties for sale. Much of the information provided on this site is simply old recorded sales from the court house records.

The question should be, what can't I get in Naples for 500k or less. That money will go a long way right now. They are calling right now a real estate nirvana. Meaning this is the best time ever to buy or sell real estate. Naples is definitely one of the best places in the country for real estate right now. Call me to discuss: 239-571-0627

There are many developments you can get in to for around $500,000. It really depends on your location. As you get closer to the South end of town and West of I-75, your prices will be higher, but there are many developments to perfectly fill your needs!

There are simply too many answers to your question. To answer intelligently to your question one would need much more than a budget number.
Inventory is limited currently, therefore if your intention to buy is serious you have to establish your NON-NEGOTIABLE priorities, first.

Part of what you can get depends on the location. The prices go up by the beach and in certain gated golf communities. There are nice areas where you could get a beautiful single family home for that price. If you would like a list or further guidance please contact me .

Hi Ben,
There are many gated communities in Naples, they are spread from West ( closer in ) to the East... It is all about location. There are also some new construction since our market In Naples has been in an upswing.
Amenities also affect the price. Do you like resort style living, or golf, etc.?
There are at least 10 factors to consider when purchasing a home in a gated community in Naples.
I would welcome the opportunity to assist you and provide the information you need to make an important decision.

Nice open ended question, you may want to narrow down your search. Are you looking for a SFR? Townhome, Condo? What area of town? What is on your "must have list"?

You know who can help you with this? A local Realtor. Maybe contact 1-2 local agents that took the time to answer your question, start a relationship with one today to help you find the right home for you.

Best of luck.

Oops, just saw that you are looking for single family in gated community. Again, many choices in that price range. Please contact me directly if you'd like to discuss.

Hello Ben,
Your question is very interesting. The Naples market is very hot right now. The question is really broad. I would be happy to assist you in narrowing that down. We have great resale and new construction properties that meet your initial criteria. It would be helpful to know areas of interest, how much you are willing to pay in HOA fees, what type of home you are looking for to entertain at the holidays, etc.
I would look forward to the chance to be of assistance.
Please give me a call or email today.
Take care,

Ben, Quite a lot, actually. But, as indicated below, there are many other things to be considered in order to calculate your total carrying costs. Do you want to be near the beach, in gated or non-gated community, etc.

Please contact me directly with a description of your dream home (not directly on the beach for that price, of course, at least not single family, but condo, yes). I'll be happy to find what is available that will meet your criteria.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Ben, Great question ! Actually your timing a great. Still very brisk on sales, however easier to get around town to look at homes as traffic flow is improved. Please feel free to go on our site and search at your convenience by price range. Yes, even water view homes still available !!

There are quite a few choices for you in Naples for 500k. It depends on your monthly allowance for fees too. Since many gated communities offer golfing or other amenities, this price can make it or break it for most buyers.
If you are looking for a bundled community, you can expect a membership fee equity/social plus monthly dues.
Lely is a great place to look for laid back vacation homes in south Naples. There you will find gated communities within the larger area of Lely.
You can go with new construction in some areas which are a bit further from the beach, like communities off of Immokalee Rd.
I can send you a list of all the available homes that meet your requirements. Just click through to my profile here and send me an email or click the link below to my website where you can send me a request or read my blog posts about investment properties.

Best of luck with your search,
