Market Conditions:   So far in 2018, the real estate market has been fairly good, with sales
running slightly above 2017 levels in our firm.   The 2017 hurricane is ancient history now.
Business now seems to be back to normal.  Traffic is good.  People are still moving into the
area.  The Collier County population is now approximately 365,000 people.  Naples Fl. will
always be a desired destination for the snow-birds.  Properties priced from the mid $100s.
The Red Tide was a minor issue near Naples over the last few months, but as it has in the
past, it is soon forgotten and things go back to normal with everyone enjoying the beach.

The Vineyards:   The Vineyards continues to have good sales.  People are still finding it
to be one of the better communities to live in.  Not being far from the expressway; you
can get to the airport in about 30 minutes.  You do not have to be a golfer to live in the
Vineyards.    If you wish to join the club, there are several kinds of memberships that
are available.  It is a club offering 36 holes of golf, tennis, fitness, formal and informal
dining and social activities.  The new extensive fitness center will open soon.
