The latest report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors (NABOR) showed a positive increase of 6%+ in home sales in Naples for the month of May, 2010, compared to the same month last year.  However when you delve a little deeper and look at the supporting statistics, the numbers for condominiums really stand out.  Of the 771 total closings for all of Collier County less Marco Island this May, 398 of them or almost 52% were for condos.  This also represents a 25% increase over the previous May.
