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.

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.

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 ...
