The jobless rate has dropped 1.2% year over a year currently. Initially fueled by rapidly improving real estate sales and new construction in the upper tier of the market. Naples in Collier County has only slightly less than 15,000 jobless with Lee County lagging behind with over 30,000 jobless. This is due in part to the in-demand luxury real estate areas of Port Royal, Aqualane Shores, and Olde Naples, rapidly increasing sales giving way to more bountiful job opportunities in the construction trades, with many more new builds being requested and renovations of existing residences even at ages of less than 10 years old. It's a lifestyle and people like it here.
