As noted by brokers reviewing the housing data, September had a 6-month supply of inventory. “Inventory levels are always low in September,” said Bill Coffey, Broker Manager of Amerivest Realty Naples. “You’re going to see those homes that were pulled off the MLS on the market again in the next few months. But it’s too bad because buyers who don’t have options in the resale market in Naples now are not waiting for more homes to come onto the market, but instead are buying resale homes in Lee County or even further north.” Geographically, condominiums in South Naples (34112, 34113) saw a 22.1 percent spike in its median closed prices to $213,000 in September 2019 from $174,500 in September 2018. Alternately, condominiums in North Naples saw a 16.4 percent decrease in median closed prices to $242,500 in September 2019 from $290,000 in September 2018.
