It is being reported that Tropical Storm Fay may pass by Southwest Florida Tuesday morning. If you would like to stay updated about the storm's progress, please click on Hurricane Information. This page has links to sites with hurricane information. The NBC2 Hurricane Resource site is a great link filled with lots of information. Wether you are long time residents or have just moved to Naples, it is a good idea to read about how to prepare for a Hurricane.
If you own in Naples and are currently out of state, now is the time to make sure all your patio furniture and outdoor flower pots have been taken inside.
I have also recently added a page to this website with news stories that may be of interest to Naples Buyers and Sellers. This link Lynn's News Picks will take you to articles and online links that I have been reading and think will be of interest to you.
Since the beginning of August I have noticed an increase in showing activity on my listings and offers being presented. Many of these offers are abysmally low. The Naples Board of Realtors reported Naples market statistics show that pending sale for the 12 month period ending July of 2008 are up in all categories from the 12 month period ending July 2007. Our overall median sales prices have decrease 15.54% during the same time period.
The number of active listings in Naples has fallen to 10,640. Giving the number of monthly sales we have had, there is currently a 30 month inventory of listings on the market.
Here is hoping that tropical storm Fay fizzles out before it comes near Florida!
