Price Climb Slows as Naples Inventory Heats Up for Summer

As competition grows in the Naples housing market – overall inventory increased 67.1 percent in May to 5,019 properties from 3,004 properties in May 2023 – monthly closed sales for the month decreased 12.2 percent to 907 closed sales from 1,033 closed sales in May 2023. Broker analysts reviewing the May 2024 Market Report by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), are closely monitoring the number of monthly price decreases to see whether it could turn the tide and improve sales this summer. One thing was certain in the May Market Report: summer buyers will have many more options than winter buyers.

May NABOR Market Report

New listings during May increased 18.4 percent to 1,201 new listings from 1,014 new listings in May 2023.

In addition to 1,710 price decreases reported in May, the median closed price was $650,000, the same as the median closed price reported in April, which enjoyed 2,365 price decreases. Comparatively, the median closed price increased 8.3 percent to $650,000 from $600,000 in May 2023.

Another benefit of rising inventory and list price decreases has been the rise in the number of properties for sale in the lower end of the market. For May, properties in the $300,000 and below price category increased 104 percent to 308 from 151 in May 2023. Similarly, properties for sale in the $300,000 to $500,000 price category increased 90.1 percent to 1,032 from 543 in May 2023.
