Naples Real Estate Market Experiences Robust Growth in April 2024

Naples, Fla. (May 31, 2024) – After months of increasing inventory, April saw a notable rise in closed sales, climbing 3.8 percent to 999 closed transactions compared to 962 in April 2023. This achievement marks the first time since June 2021 that monthly closed sales have outpaced those of previous years. According to the April 2024 Market Report by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which monitors home listings and sales in Collier County (excluding Marco Island), a significant driver of this uptick was the 2,365 price reductions in April, which encouraged more buyer activity. Furthermore, new listings grew by 16.3 percent, with 1,335 new listings in April compared to 1,148 in the same month last year.

Naples Florida Was Just Voted America’s Best Place to Live

Naples, FL, renowned for its warm weather, low taxes, and relaxed lifestyle, has been named America’s best place to live by US News and World Report.
The annual report describes Naples as a "playground for the powerful and wealthy" and a favored spot for retirees. However, living in this paradise comes at a cost—home prices in Naples are more than double the national average. Following Naples in the rankings are Boise, ID, Colorado Springs, CO, and Greenville, SC.
For locals, Naples' top ranking is no surprise. Long-time resident Mark Danni praises the city for its daily sunshine and vibrant performing arts scene. Naples' climb in the rankings, from sixth place in previous years, is due to its strong job market, low 3.6% unemployment rate, and a median household income of $98,120—significantly above the national average. Additionally, the city's crime rate is well below the national average.
The best places to live were evaluated based on affordability, happinesss ...
