Home values for Naples-Marco Island are forecast to increase by 20 percent by the first quarter of 2015, according to Local Market Monitor.

The Cary, N.C-based research firm forecast it will tie with North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton for the third-highest expected appreciation in the state.

Prices in Naples-Marco Island are forecast to increase an additional 15 percent in 2016 and 12 percent in 2017.

In Cape Coral-Fort Myers, prices are projected to rise 12 percent by 2015, and 10 percent and 9 percent in the ensuing years.

Nationally, the research firm expects prices to rise 8.7 percent by 2015.
