Isn't this a lovely sunset? 

Sunset in Naples, FL

In the 13 years I have lived in Naples, I never tire of the sunsets.  It is a great stress release to go down to the beach after work and witness a gorgeous sunset.

Fall has arrived to Naples today! This past Friday evening I was swimming in 91 degree Gulf water with my husband Don.  Today I put a jacket on while I read the Sunday paper on my lanai.  Our high was 73 degrees.  After a brutally hot October, 73 degrees seemed pretty cold to me.  I guess I have turned into a true Floridian.

Car carriers have been seen all over the area lately as even more snowbirds return to Naples.  I noticed a surge in showing activity on my listings over the Columbus Day weekend holiday.

The Naples Board of Realtors released statistics for the 3rd quarter of 2009 and September of 2009.  Not surprisingly the overall market for the 3rd quarter of 2009 showed a 126% increase in pending sales under $300,000.00 in comparision to the 3rd quarter of 2008.  If you have been waiting to purchase a place in Naples under $300,000.00 you are going to be facing some pretty stiff competition.

The median sales price for the overall Naples market decreased 30% to $176,000.00 in the 3rd quarter of 2009 from $250,000.00 in the 3rd quarter of 2008.  While prices may still fall a tad in higher price ranges, the under $300,000.00 is on fire.
