First Quarter Housing Market Activity 
Sets the Stage for Strong Year

Naples, Fla. (April 13, 2018) - Sales of homes above $1 million in Naples during the first quarter of 2018 drove the market. Their sales increased 61 percent compared to the same quarter of 2017 according to the First Quarter 2018 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS (NABOR), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island).

NEWS
Pending sales in the first quarter of 2018 increased 3 percent to 3,177 compared to 3,097 in the first quarter of 2017. Although pending sales for both single-family homes and condominiums over $1 million increased by double digits, it was the $2 million and above condominium market that raised eyebrows among brokers who reviewed the reports.
As reflected in the market's year-ending statistics (12-months ending 1Q 2018 versus 12-months ending 1Q 2017), there was a 69 percent increase in closed sales of condominiums in the $2 million and above market, and a 17 percent decrease in its median closed price to $2,450,000 from $2,962,000 in 2017. Despite rocket sales in this high-end sector during the first quarter of 2018 (179 percent increase) and a drop in median closed prices for the first quarter (24 percent decrease), its inventory increased 5 percent! Similarly, median closed prices for condominiums in the $300,000 and below price category dropped 1 percent to $199,000 from $200,000 in the first quarter of 2017, but inventory increased 3 percent.
The NABOR First Quarter 2018 Market Report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges, and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. The NABOR First Quarter 2018 sales statistics are presented in chart format, including these overall (single-family and condominium) findings:
