Barefoot Beach Community North Naples
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the property taxes?
Property taxes in Naples (Collier County) are very low, with a tax rate approximately 1.2% of the appraised value. Appraised tax values in Naples FL are set as of January 1 each year, based on closed comparable sales of the previous year.
A few communities have a Community Development District (CDD) payment, which is separate from the property tax rate. The CDD amount is added to the tax bill.
Is a home's taxable value the same as its market value?
No. Taxes due in one year are based on computer determined averages of like properties sold two years earlier. Also tax appraised values when determined are conservatively set, as the tax appraiser does not want an office full of residents appealing their home’s tax appraised value.
Generally a home’s real value is higher than the taxable value, and often it can be significantly higher.
What are the best communities for the value?
As Naples has such a vast assortment of communities, there is no better community for a given price range. It is all about personal choice and budget ranges. Many different good options and choices exist based on personal choices.
What existing areas are the new up-and-coming areas?
There are no up and coming areas. When I fist started in real estate, several associates talked about a particular neighborhood being the up and coming area. Twenty years later, I still hear people say that.
What area or neighborhood would make the best investment opportunity?
There is not a particular neighborhood that will outperform other neighborhoods.. Individual properties that can be purchased at a very good value will do better. Also the lower the price range, the greater the demand, the greater the potential growth.
I see two similar homes prices very differently in the same location, why?
This question we hear a lot. Similar homes in the same community, and one is priced much higher than the others. The standard answer – “The higher priced seller wants more, the other sellers ares more practical.”
What will the seller accept for an offer?
Many times a seller will reject a very fair and reasonable offer. It is impossible to know what a seller is willing to do, until an offer is made. What a seller thinks they will do before they get a written offer, and what they end up doing are often different.
