According to the September 2019 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), showings in September 2019 were up 31 percent over September 2018. This translated into a 13.7 percent increase in pending sales (written contracts) or 823 pending sales in September 2019 compared to 724 pending sales in September 2018. Strong showing activity during the summer resulted in 698 closed sales during September 2019.

The September report showed median closed prices remained stable during the third quarter (July, August & September). In July, the median closed price was $326,400. By September, the median closed price had dropped slightly to $325,000, which is only a .7 percent decrease from September 2018, which reported a median closed price of $327,408. Interestingly, the median closed price in January 2019 was $325,000.

With over 500 listings pulled from the MLS in September, it is no surprise that overall inventory for the month fell. However, even though it decreased 17.8 percent to 4,989 homes compared to 6,070 homes in September 2018, inventory for September was higher than August by 72 homes.
