Naples, Florida real estate buyers are still stirring!
I arrived at the office today to prepare for a showing appointment tomorrow with some customers from Sweden and fully expected to have plenty of quiet time to work on my Naples, Florida real estate website and catch up with some long overdue blogging.
The first surprise phone call of the day was from a really nice lady from France who's planning a trip in August to purchase in Pelican Bay. Unexpected phone calls and emails from buyers are actually not "unexpected" anymore but I do marvel at the fact that I had so many inquiries today. Not all new people. I've had some people who have been popping in from time to time as well.
For example, I have a client who is desperately seeking a single family home in Old Naples. She missed out on one last week due to another offer that came in before she could schedule a trip down here to take a peek before signing the dotted line so now we're emailing each other back and forth nearly everyday and in some cases often throughout the day discussing what's currently available and whether or not it will work for her and her family. Whew!
Then there's the guy who's been circling over a unit in Pelican Bay...waiting ever so patiently...sort of.
Needless to say, even though the air is heating up in Naples, Florida the buyers in the area are showing little to no signs of cooling off. Is it because they think now is the time to buy or because they're responding to the deals that are hitting the market. Maybe. In some cases like the Old Naples client, fears of cold winters up north are driving her motivation to purchase more than the prices are.
I think it is interesting that so many people have set appointments throughout the summer months. This is certainly a trend that I didn't expect and is defiantly a trend I saw none of last year at this time. If I were a polar bear expecting to hibernate through October I'd be grumpy about it but since I'm a Smart Girl selling Naples, Florida real estate my happy face is more appropriate and matches my summer wardrobe better. So if you're thinking about purchasing property in Naples, give me a shout. I'm happy to assist.
