Picking the Perfect Paint

One of the easiest and least expensive updates you can make to your home is painting. For most homeowners, it is something that can be accomplished with little to no expertise and without expensive tools. By purchasing the desired paint and a few basic supplies, you can make a big change to a room or your entire home.
Selecting paint can be challenging though. Flat, satin, semigloss and glossy paints are just a few of your choices. When you settle on a kind of paint, there are many brands to select from and then the choice of color. With thousands of different shades of paint to select from, you may think you will never make a choice. Where do you start to narrow down your selection to the perfect paint for you?
Start by considering the area you are painting. High traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms or doors with lots of use will do best with a semi-gloss or glossy paint. It is also great on cabinets and trim. Flat and satin paints will be better in adult bedrooms or dining roo ...

Naples, FL (June 26, 2022) – Overall home inventory in Collier County was up 59% in May 2022 compared to May 2021, according to a market report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors (NABOR). In addition, pending sales and overall closed sales were down 36% and 25%, respectively, while new listings increased 8%. The median closed price increased 40% from May 2021 to $608,000, with homes staying on the market for an average of 16 days.

“Inventory has been rising since December,” said Mike Shoaff, REALTOR at REMAX in Naples. “By the end of May, our inventory in Naples has nearly doubled since the same time a year ago. And if you include the 889 homes that had a price reduction in May to this inventory mix, then we’re in good shape heading into summer. Price reductions are basically like new listings because the home’s new price point becomes a new opportunity to a larger pool of buyers.”

Signs Show Naples Housing Market is Regaining Balance

Naples, FL (May 23, 2022) – Overall inventory in Naples during April increased 16.5 percent to 1,668 properties from 1,432 properties in April 2021. Fueled by a swell of new single-family home listings, up 5.7 percent over last year, broker analysts reviewing the April 2022 Market Report by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), are confident the Naples area housing market has reached a crossroad and is making its turn toward a balanced and healthy market.

 
The overall median closed price in April increased 39.2 percent to $599,000 from $440,000 in April 2021. The uptick reflects the low number of sales in the $300 and below price category. Median closed prices continue to rise in the single-family home market, up 8.7 percent from March, but median closed prices during April in the condominium market decreased 1.1 percent from March.
