You can find properties in and around Naples for 200K but I think your expectation to have waterfront view and reasonable access may be difficult. If you are willing to do more than a little renovation, this will help your case. Naples has suffered a 19.6% reduction in property values over the past 12 months, but things have really leveled off and the buying has begun. He has a client in Naples from the UK right this minute making an offer on a Capri townhouse for just under 300K. They really did their homework and found that they can rent during season and net about 13K/annual which would be about a 6% return...in this market this is not bad. More important, they are purchasing in one of the most desired locations in FL and long term the appreciation will be excellent.

Evidently the guy who is Just Looking and replying to your questions isn't aware that many properties are going to contract and many offices have seen an increase in sales volumes over last year's numbers. Much of this is economically driven, with all the foreclosures and short sales available at drastically reduced prices, but the bottom line is people are buying again in Naples. There is a lot of inventory out there so shop wisely. Now is the time to get the most "bang for your buck."
Let's face it. Naples is a lifestyle. Sun, Sand, Surf, and a great city overall. Good luck with your search and let me know if I can help out. I specialize in properties under $500,000. I can probably find you a very nice condo, with a nice lakeview and/or golf view, approximately 6 miles to the beach in a solid association, for under $180,000.
There are places that meet your criteria. However, being realistic, it's doubtful you will find this opportunity in Naples.
If you would be comfortable a little further north, there are plenty of options in North port and Port Charlotte. We would be happy to send you samples of these homes at your request.

I knew your question was going to raise a lot of commotion but I did not think it would surround the definition on "Waterfront view and access a plus"...
I think it is pretty obvious that you meant the ocean since you began your sentence with "close to beach".
As stated previously, 200K with "close to beach, waterfront view and access a plus" and 2 bedroom, etc. will be difficult, if not impossible for UNDER 200K.
Look forward to hearing from you!

I agree with Steve, I am a realtor and like everyone else I try and answer the questions honestly. But not everyone wants and honest answer or in some cases no one wants to discourage a possible client. But to be honest with you for that price you could get a property with a lake view in a condo complex about ten minutes from the beach. Another thing you might want to consider that as nice as it is to be close to the beach/ocean condo fees are usually very expensive which could drive up you monthly expenses. If there is anything I can do for you feel free to call or email me

I hate to see other agents making negative comments here about other agents' statements. If your definition of "waterfront" is a lake (or truly, a pond, here), then it might be possible, but more likely you will either need to bend a little on the age criteria or on how close it is to the beach. I just finished searching for clients in the mid 200's and found quite a bit in very nice North Naples communities just 6 miles or less to the beach on Immokalee Road. With aggressive negotiation, you could get something there with nice amenities for close to your number, though I am still not sure it would be less than $200K.
Realism is an important thing to have. Please feel free to log on to our website to Search the MLS for what you want. Happy to help.

I don't believe your price range is realistic for what your criteria suggests. You can purchase within a 10 minute drive to downtown Naples in a community where they have a pool and where you may find a lake view. If you are a serious buyer, the time may be now to take a look at what is available.
I have several clients from Toronto who have purchased in Naples. If I can assist, please contact me.
I am asking $71,000 for the 13 weeks 2B/2B. They are rentable and I do very well with renting them. The association also assists in the rentals. It is a Fabulous location with many, many ammenities in the area.
Please call my cell if interested.....You will be able to purchase this condo without closing costs through a timeshare resale group that I have it listed with.... you can also get financing through them

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!!
You obviously don't know the Naples market. Even during the worst of all times Naples has never given up 20%. Naples is pulling away from a 19% property value loss right now and properties are selling right and left. Now Miami I would not disagree with you.
Naples is heading into positive numbers before the end of 2009. I've put money on it!!
I hope that answers your question and if you would like more information on that property let me know at Rae@raewakelin.com
I am not an agent, just someone interested in Naples real estate. Chris states "close to the beach, waterfront view". So he obviously doesn't mean a lake or pond. I do agree there's a lot out on Immokalee Road, but six miles from the beach doesn't really meet the criteria of "close to the beach". Why can't anyone simply be honest, and tell Chris that his 200k is UNreasonable?
Hey, Scott, if you can truly find everything that Chris is asking for, please contact me as well. I would love to buy a 2-bedroom, modern POOL home, close to the BEACH in NAPLES. In fact, I'll buy two of them. And my friends will probably buy a few as well.
