Bonita  Bay Leads Bonita Springs Luxury Sales

A recent conversation with a home buyer provoked the thought of researching where the high end, luxury real estate in Bonita Springs is selling, where the affluent have been buying.  We do have a few choice gated communities, gulf access and beach front real estate locations that command sale prices of $1,000,000 and up.  Since numbers and closed sales tell the story I was curious enough to do a little research on where the luxury real estate actually did close sale. 

Luxury Real estate sales March 1 2012 to March 1 2013

Bonita Bay 47 units

Barefoot Beach 26 units

The Brooks 21 units

Bonita Beach 15 units

Pelican Landing & The Colony 14 units

Quail West 5 units

West Bay Club 3 units

Included in this luxury real estate research was the city Estero, Florida which only had three closed sales in West Bay and Barefoot Beach which has a Naples, Florida (Collier County) geographic code but a Bonita Springs mailing address.

It’s no surprise that Bonita Bay luxury home sales lead the pack.  Many of the units sold were tower residences, luxury condo sales in the buildings of Estancia and Tavira on the bay. Bonita Bay boast the most luxury homes supported buy the infrastructure to support the luxury lifestyle in the area; country club, equity golf course, marina gulf access, tennis and fitness facilities and more.

The close second was the community Barefoot Beach which is lauded for gulf and bay views from more homes than any other neighborhood in Bonita Springs, Florida.  Barefoot Beach is a semi private “walk out the door and have sand on your feet” neighborhood with the exclusive mailing address luxury home buyers are looking for.

The Brooks, most notably Shadow Wood at The Brooks, closed twenty-one homes in the luxury homes market and arrived in third for volume of unit sales.

Over all, the Bonita Springs luxury real estate market accounted for about 5.5% of all closed sales in the last year, March 1, 2012 to March 2, 2013 in the Bonita Springs, Estero Florida.
