Yes and No....because inventory of well priced and nice condition are drying up may start shifting towards a seller's market...this summer should really make that apparent if the market sales are strong. KathyBC 800-448-3411 ext 601...(5/6)

Buyers market in terms of interest rates and prices. Seller's market in terms of low inventory, and increased price trends. As a buyer, I would buy now. As a seller, it would depend on circumstances, type of home, and location, whether I would sell now or wait to potentially receive a higher selling price as prices continue to trend upward.

The last 12 month trend tips towards the average # of single family home listings per year (6792). The sold single family homes over last 12 months was 4284. The difference between these two numbers gives us a 4.4 month inventory of homes. As the inventory drops off obviously prices will take a more serious up turn. However, SW Florida has maintained a 3-5 month average of inventory for many years. Thankfully, we still have the demand for exceptionally priced properties and the fact that it is Florida doesn't hurt. Thanks for your question.

In the most sought after areas (West of US41) we are definitely moving towards a seller's market, since the inventory is steep down.
I would be happy to help.....

The Naples market is broad in scope and inventory varies by geographic area. Generally speaking, the demand for homes has sparked building activity which is at its highest in years. The amount of that inventory which is released will impact the balance of supply and demand.
Interest rates and home prices will also impact the ability to purchase, although the majority of sales have been cash.
We are experiencing an increase of sales, reduced inventory, and rising home prices, but we also are witnessing a huge amount of international and domestic buyers that are nonstop. Many Realtors are swamped with buyers, and good properties receive multiple offers and sell quickly.

All appears balanced but the market is leaning towards a seller's market as demand continues.
As I described in a Trulia blog,it is also a good time for sellers to sell, especially if "moving up."

The Naples, FL Market is overall balanced. However there are certain areas that have turned to a Seller's Market.

Feel to contact me to discuss.

It is my opinion as a buyers agent the market has moved into the direction of a balance market. When you consider that we now have multiple offers on the limited amount of inventory of resale homes, I'd say that's a good indicator.
If you are interested in more information about selling your home or purchasing a home, you may contact my team at Keller Williams Realty Naples.
We will assist you through each step of the process.

Slightly buyers favor now but inventory is tight and moving near balanced.
