A LOOK AT SELECT REAL ESTATE MARKETS

• Barcelona – On the road to economic recovery. After six consecutive years of price reductions, Barcelona is now experiencing price stability, especially in the luxury segment. The 7,893 first-quarter unit sales reflects an increase of 14 percent over the previous quarter, also marking the first quarter in eight years that both sales and price increased at the same time.
• Berlin’s average time on market to sell is eight to nine months. Berlin is experiencing record lows in inventory, below 2 percent on average and 1.5 percent in most central areas of the city, due to the strong economy, low interest rates and an increase in population. With the population forecasted to increase by 7.2 percent by 2030, the market is facing a significant shortage of supply with only 6,500 new residential units being built per year compared to the projected need of 11,000 annually. Berlin is largely a rental market, yet the homeownership rate has increased to approximately 15 percent largely due to an influx of first-time buyers.
• Bucharest - The largest city in Romania is seeing a surge in new home construction with nearly 1,500 completed in the first quarter of 2014, compared to 900 in the first quarter of 2013. This level of individual and state building in the first quarter of 2014 is similar to those figures experienced during the economic boom period. Overall, real estate transactions are up eight percent through the first quarter of 2014 compared to the previous year.
• Malta, one of the world’s smallest and most densely populated countries, has been relatively stable although there has been a cultural shift towards renting via long term leases as apartments are being built to replace older homes. Like many markets, 2014 has brought renewed strength to the housing market beginning to erase a 40 percent combined price drop from 2008-2013 when banks stopped all developmental loans. Prior to 2008, Malta experienced annual price increases of 10-15 percent.
• Rome is seeing positive signs after seven years of real estate sales contraction. In the first quarter of 2014, 6,579 properties were sold in Rome, which was a 0.6 percent increase year-over-year, while pricing decreased over previous quarters.

LOOKING DEEPER: FOREIGN BUYERS
Barcelona. The majority of foreign buyers coming into Barcelona are from the United Kingdom (14 percent overall), followed by France (11 percent), Russia (9 percent), Germany (8 percent), Belgium (7 percent), Switzerland (6 percent) and the United States (3 percent).
Bucharest. American buyers make up less than one percent. The majority of foreign buyers come from Spain, Hungary, Austria, Germany, U.K., Israel, Turkey and China.
Berlin. Berlin, especially West Berlin, has traditionally been very popular among Russian buyers and this trend continues in today’s market. Italians are the second largest group of foreign buyers with a noticeable increase from southern Europeans led by Italy, Greece and France.
Malta. Foreign buyers are mostly European (10 percent overall) with a small percentage of Americans on the island (0.3 percent). Other noticeable foreign buyers are coming from Asia (3 percent), Russia (2 percent) and Africa (0.7 percent).
Rome. The majority of foreign buyers are from Russia (12 percent overall), followed by the U.K. (10 percent), Germany (9 percent), France (8 percent), U.S. (7 percent), and China (5 percent).

Roger Pettingell Lists $4.3 Million Bay Isles Home

Roger Pettingell , a Previews® Property Specialist with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate ’s Longboat Key office, has listed 530 Harbor Gate Way on Longboat Key for $4.395 million. The brand new, two-story custom home was built by Murray Homes and designed by architect John Potvin. Located in the Harbor section of Bay Isles, the home was built on an 18,000-square-foot lot with more than 200 feet of waterfront with a dock on a deep-water canal leading to the bay.

The almost 5,000-square-foot modern residence has four en-suite bedrooms, four full bathrooms and one half bath with an oversized two-car garage. The master retreat is situated on the main level and features an oversized walk-in designed by Contemporary Closets, spa-inspired bathroom with Archeda by Cucine Ricci sinks and cabinetry and private outdoor shower.

The never-lived-in custom home was commissioned by Neal and Jill Colton, and sadly, Jill passed away this past September to endometrial cancer before the home was completed. Neal made it his mission to complete the home, making sure it had the best of everything, which was what she wanted.

“My wife and I had planned for this to be the ultimate retirement home of our dreams. We had worked with the architect to design a home that provided ease to an aging and active couple, which is why all of the major elements of the home are all on the same level,” said Neal Colton. “This is not a spec home. Jill and I put a great deal of effort into every detail of this home, and we never compromised on the original vision.”

This property showcases more than 6,000-square-feet of imported Walker Zanger Italian porcelain flooring, a 3-stop elevator, custom LED lighting, a Wicked Smart automation system and a natural gas fireplace. On the backside of the home, facing the water are walls of floor to ceiling impact resistant glass with pocketing sliders that expand the open floor plan of the living, dinning and family rooms to the outdoor entertaining areas. The lanai and outdoor kitchen with teak cabinetry and Lynx stainless steel grill are protected by automated screens and overlook the Pebbletech Infiniti-edge pool and spa with fireplace, as well as the dock and canal.

“New luxury construction is very hard to find in today’s market,” said Pettingell. “The thought and detail which have gone into the building of this home are incredible. I expect this home to attract a sophisticated buyer who wants a never-lived in home on a premium deep-water lot.”

Pettingell is a leader in marketing and employs a group of marketing and management experts to assist in providing one-on-one support and boutique-style service to Roger’s customers, from listing to sale. His website, LongBoatRealEstate.com , averages 1,500 unique visitors a month, and he has a loyal following on Facebook , Twitter , LinkedIn and YouTube. His philanthropic involvement in the local community includes serving on the board of directors for the West Coast Black Theatre Troupe, the Ringling Museum and Southeastern Guide Dogs.

“It is very rare to find Gulf-front residences in the Sarasota area or beyond with so many environmental achievements and features,” said Bates. “Each designation makes Palazzi Al Mare further unique and even more ideal for the eco-friendly, environmentally conscious buyer.”

Efficiency details include the following:

• It is estimated that Palazzi al Mare will consume 60 percent less electricity than an identical building constructed in compliance with current building codes.
• High performance windows and doors reduce the solar heat gain by approximately 90 percent or more on average.
• Over a 20-year period, projected electricity cost savings for each residence could be as high as $65,000 (assuming 7% inflation). The estimated average monthly electric bill for one of the 5,300-square-feet air-conditioned spaces is $120, with a projected $40 monthly water expense.
• Building materials from all local Southwest Florida suppliers include: recycled wood, hurricane windows with the highest UV rating and crushed granite stucco feature walls.
• Conveniently located control panels operate the home’s efficiency and allow you to turn off and on lights throughout the home — no matter where you are.
