Here in Naples we have one significant "Season".

Most of us grew up with and are aware of the Four Seasons of the year; Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall or Autumn!


Here in Naples we have one significant "Season".

  • As a Home Owner "Season" could be described as the time of the year; when you can not get into your favorite restaurant, or park your car close to your favorite store or make an appointment (for anything) for the next day, or get to 5th Ave S in 15 minutes. Or park near the beach unless you get an early start.
  • As a Winter Vacationer, "Season" is described as the time of year they make reservations to rent a condo or single family home to enjoy the warm winter months, averaging 75 degrees during the day. It is another part of their life. 
  • As a REALTOR, "Season" is when our vacationers turn into Buyers and our home owners turn into "Sellers". It's like when Marshall Fields used to decorate their store fronts with all the prized merchandise and include fun displays to attract the buyers attention. Our Naples displays include, "For Sale" and "Open House" signs.   
How do we REALTORS know that the "Season" is here or has started; the car carriers start to arrive with as many as eight cars per drop all over Naples, every day and every make you can imagine.  

Which community will see the most carriers hard to tell!  Old Naples, Aqualane, Port Royal, Pelican Bay, Grey Oaks, Tiburon, Vanderbilt Beach, Parkshore/Moorings area, Imperial Golf, Naples Square - new construction?

4 Seasons or is it 5 in Naples?


We are all familiar with the 4 Seasons, Winter, Spring Summer and Autumn/Fall.  But in Naples we have 5 it's called "Season", the time when folks converge on Naples to escape the cold winter months.

You will find visitors from all over the world Canada is possibly the largest population with Germany and UK being large contenders and my newest buyers from Sweden.

The pilgrimage begins in October and is usually over after spring break about mid April.
The beginning of "Season", how can you tell, well for one the car carriers start entering the city. You have to ask yourself why transport your car for a "vacation". Well when your "vacation" is for 30 days to possibly 6 months it just makes sense. With many of our visitors being owners of condos and single family homes it is their second or third home.
A tremendous increase in all activities not only in Naples but each community within Naples. Folks come together to meet their "Season" friends for spending time at the beach, a round of golf, tennis matches, fishing, boating, many restaurants  and lets not forget our great weather. 
The return of the car carriers  indicates "seasons"end.
