June Market Activity Sets the Stage for Strong Summer Sales

 

Naples, Fla. (July 24, 2020) - According to the June 2020 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), pending sales (homes under contract) increased 61.3 percent compared to June 2019, with single-family homes being the home choice for a majority of buyers. Broker analysts reviewing the report also noted that new listings during June increased 25.8 percent compared to June 2019, which indicates growing consumer confidence for both sellers and buyers leading into the summer Naples real estate market.

The everlasting desirability of the Naples real estate market was undeniable in June, especially in the single-family home market where pending sales increased 83.9 percent to 835 pending sales from 454 pending sales in June 2019. Pending sales of condominiums during June increased 38.7 percent to 634 pending sales from 457 pending sales in June 2019.

Before the pandemic, the number of closed sales of single-family homes and condominiums was about equal each month; but the June Market Report revealed a shift in buyer preference to single family homes compared to June 2019, as closed sales of single-family homes increased 2.9 percent to 498, while closed sales in the condominium market decreased 12.8 percent to 383. This trend could be attributed to buyers wanting a larger home with more space to accommodate working from and sheltering at home.

Inventory decreased 27.6 percent to 4,739 homes in June from 6,547 homes in June 2019. The majority of this depletion was reported in the single-family home market, which decreased 34.5 percent, while the condominium market had a decrease in inventory of 20.3 percent. The report also showed the largest drop in inventory occurred in the $300,000 to $500,000 single family home market, which decreased 47.7 percent in June compared to June 2019.
