Escalating Naples’ Real Estate Prices Have Affluent Boomers Selling. But Where Are They Going?

January 07, 2022


According to new National Association of Realtors second-quarter data, Naples and the rest of Collier County saw a median sales price increase of over 42%. As housing demand continues to outweigh supply, area boomers and seniors are selling their homes, taking some of their money off the table, and moving. But where are they going after the sale of their high-end homes?

Many of the “country-club” set are making the move to one of Moorings Park Communities’ three locations. With prices ranging from just $421,000 to over $5 million, these three stunning Life Plan Communities are designed for people with refined tastes…for those who desire a lifestyle surrounded by beautiful scenery…world-class restaurants…life-enriching activities and amenities…and the nation’s premier health and wellness programs.

“Part of the reason we were drawn to Moorings Park Grande Lake was the Clubhouse. It really feels like you are at a resort. The three restaurants, the swimming pool, the fitness center, the salon and spa, the theatre … just everything. It’s spectacular!” states Marvin Easton who recently sold his house in Port Royal.

Internationally Known for the Best in Wellness

For over 41 years, Moorings Park Communities has been driving innovations in retirement living, including the latest in medical advances, wellness trends for Baby Boomers and what retirees could, and should, be doing to live their best life.

“Our goal is to change how the world ages…to create the proverbial Fountain of Youth. Everything we do challenges the status quo on aging,” said Dan Lavender, CEO and President of Moorings Park Communities. “We believe in doing things differently.”

As evidence of this, consider the award from the International Council on Active Aging. The Beacon Award, designed to recognize retirement communities offering the best in wellness to their residents, bestowed the honor of the #1 wellness-based community in North America on Moorings Park.

A Focus on Proactive Wellness

Moorings Park Communities has a long and notable history for its exceptional personalized healthcare programs serving a clientele that is accustomed to the finer things in life. The company’s tagline, “Simply the Best” is a brand promise that over 1,000 staff members bring to life each and every day.

But what really sets the organization apart from other retirement communities in the area is its integrated holistic approach to wellness. This is accomplished through trained healthcare providers who practice proactive wellness rather than reactive healthcare. 

According to Mann, “One of the things you’ll receive when you move into a Moorings Park Community is the assurance of on-site healthcare, should you ever need it, that’s included with your residency.”

Beautifully Designed Residences Boasting Incredible Views

All three Moorings Park communities offer not only the finest and widest range of residential opportunities throughout the Naples area but also some of the most incredible views available anywhere in Naples.

Take for example Moorings Park, located just off of Goodlette-Frank Boulevard. In a rare opportunity, a limited number of residences are currently available. Located within steps of the notorious clubhouse, these residences offer some of the most panoramic views in the entire community. 

Homes range in size from 882 to 2,700 square feet. They are perfect for those seeking a maintenance-free lifestyle while living in a residence that looks out onto the lushly landscaped grounds, parks and shimmering lakes. Entrance fees at Moorings Park range from just $421,000 up to over $4 million with a 50% refundable option available. “I fully expect all of these residences to be reserved by May,” observes Mann. “So, if you are interested in attainable luxury, now’s your chance!”

The residences at Moorings Park Grande Lake, located just off of Golden Gate, offer gorgeous views of a 28-acre lake, framed by the manicured fairways and greens of the Naples Grande golf course just beyond.

Moorings Park Grande Lake features two-bedroom plus den or three-bedroom plans with 2,230 to 2,735 square feet under air, each with the area’s largest lanais that create stunning indoor/outdoor living, perfect for entertaining. 

Two fabulously designed penthouses measuring more than 6,000 square feet were recently released as well, with one already having been sold. Entrance fees at Moorings Park Grande Lake start at $1.6 million to over $5 million and are 70 percent refundable, a portion of which is tax-deductible.

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks, located just off of Airport-Pulling, offers the best of both worlds. In addition to all of the amazing amenities and services found in the community’s luxurious Clubhouse, residents of Moorings Park at Grey Oaks also receive a Sports Membership to Grey Oaks Country Club, which includes access to three championship golf courses, eight tennis courts, Bocce, Pickleball, casual and fine dining restaurants, resort-style swimming pool and spa, wellness center and so much more.

“There are so many great amenities available to residents of Moorings Park at Grey Oaks that they may have difficulty choosing where to begin their day – or how to end it,” Mann comments. “But, that’s just one more reason why our Moorings Park at Grey Oaks members have twice the fun.”

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks consists of stunning residences overlooking three themed gardens, as well as penthouse-style residences in the Clubhouse. Square footage of these spacious homes range from 2,067 to more than 7,000 square feet. Entrance fees start at $1 million with a 50% refundable option available. 

Amazing Amenities You Will Love

Providing outstanding healthcare programs is just one part of Moorings Park Communities’ mission to help residents live longer, healthier, happier lives. 

Each community features a wide array of amazing amenities. The Clubhouses each include casual and fine dining restaurants rivaling those found on Fifth Avenue South, state-of-the-art fitness centers, salon and spas, and theatres – among others. Resort-style pools, rubberized walking paths and park-like settings enable residents to enjoy Florida’s beautiful weather day in and day out.

The communities also offer various opportunities to play. From practicing your golf game or swimming with friends to challenging your neighbor to a game of bocce, you’ll lead an active, vibrant life in a Moorings Park community.
