Another year closer to when the day will be the most GLORIOUS DAY when i can meet my lord and savior and see my GRANDDADDY once again! My granddaddy was the only father that I ever had in my life and I have memories of fishing with him as young as 3 in our little 14 foot Starcraft Boat with a 9.9 Johnson outboard on Lake Okeechobee. Him telling me stories about dropping the lantern overboard and hooked it weeks later and it still burning. I believed at 3. Him teaching me to cut grass when the 2nd bar of the lawn mower was taller than me, of him buying my first bike and teaching me to ride, of the stories he told and the buildings he shared that he worked on on Miami Beach like the 4 ambassadors, the first 40 story bldg in Miami.My granddaddy was a man of honor and integrity and this tim...

Inventory remains low with 39% fewer homes of all types available for sale compared with a year ago. We did see a very small, 1% increase in inventory from August to September however. Even with the lower inventory, total sales continued to climb by 9% compared to September of 2020. Based on the total number of sales of 3,789, we have roughly 29 days of inventory on hand. Low inventory and strong demand along with very favorable interest rates pushed the median sales price to $318,000, which is up 18% compared to last year. Be sure to check out this brief video breaking down the #OrlandoRealEstate market for September 2021.

Up 13%, up 16% and down 39%. If you read my blog regularly, you already know what these are, because we have been in this trend for quite some time. The first number represents the increase in home sales last month compared to a year ago. Sales were up 13% with 3,999 closed transactions compare with 3,539 in August of 2020.  The second number represents the increase in the median sales price for Orlando real estate which was $320,000 last month. The third number represents the decline in inventory available for sale which stands at 3,638, a 39% decrease from a year ago, but a 3% increase compared with July.Check out this brief video breaking down the #OrlandoRealEstate market results for August 2021.

Just how challenging has the Orlando real estate market been for buyers this year? I took a look at the percentage of closed sales, in Orange and Seminole Counties for the last six months that closed above asking price. I looked at the numbers for this year compared with 2019. I went back two years for obvious reasons, given the special circumstances and challenges of 2020. Below is a table that illustrates just how much more challenging our market has been for buyers this year.  Month 2019 2021 March 8.5% 19.8% April 9.8% 27.3% May 10.2% 30.8% June 10.7% 38.2% July 9.8% 38.0% August 9.7% 36.5% You can see that in a 'normal' market nearly 10% our sales in Orlando close above the asking price. In our super heated market of 2021 that percentage has more than tripled. We have seen inventor...

No major changes last month. Sales and prices continue to climb double digits, while inventory continues to run low. Total sales in July rose 14% compared to a year ago with 4,183 homes of all types closing last month. The median price of the homes sold in July rose 18% compared to July 2020 with a median sales price of $320,000. While inventory was still 43% lower than a year ago, we did see a rise of 14% compared to June. As of the end of July there were 3,524 homes available for sale representing about a 26 day supply of homes on the market. Check out this brief video breakdown of the #OrlandoRealEstate market results for July 2021.

The #OrlandoRealEstate market continues to burn red hot as the summer selling season got under way last month. Sales and prices soared double digits, while the inventory of homes available for sale remains extremely low. June saw a 42% increase in the number of homes sold, compared to last year. The 4,414 closed sales last month is the highest number so far this year. The median price last month jumped 19% compared to a year ago, skyrocketing from $265,000 a year ago to $315,000. The inventory of homes available for sale did increase about 10% compared to May, but was still 53% lower than a year ago. There were only 3,098 homes active on the market for sale, which represents only about a three week supply of inventory. Check out this video breakdown of the market.

Take the sales increase with a grain of salt. Remember last year, May sales were way off due to COVID-19. That being said, sales did climb 82% compared with a year ago, and the median price soared 15% compared with May 2020. Over that same time, the inventory of homes of all types available for sale has plummeted 61%. Sales last month outpaced the inventory, meaning we have less than a one month supply of homes available for sale in Orlando. That may be starting to turn around though, because the 2,822 homes for sale represented a 6% increase in supply compare with the month before. Also, the median price has remained steady for the last few months at $300,000. #OrlandoRealEstate #Remax #Realtor

Homes are now routinely selling above the asking price, and many times sellers are requesting that appraisal contingencies be waved. Five of my last nine sales have been at list to as much as $25,000 over the asking price. When you watch this video breaking down the #OrlandoRealEstate market for March you will see why. Sales are soaring, and inventory is in a freefall pushing prices up double digits compared to a year ago.

Be sure to check out my post about the current challenges of purchasing a home in Orlando.When you check out the latest market report for February 2021, you will understand why buying a home in Orlando right now is not easy. Even with all the challenges, sales continue to be strong. In fact, sales of all types of homes rose 19% in February compared to a year ago. There were 2,995 sales, up from 2,521 in February of 2020. Low interest rates and strong demand have pushed prices up too. The median price in February 2020 was $250,000, and that has soard 12% to $280,000 this year. The bigger story though, is inventory. I have been saying for the last few months that the inventory of homes for sale is at critical levels. There are only 3,420 homes for sale in the Orlando market compared to 6,...

It is a new year, but we are seeing more of the same when it comes to the #OrlandoRealEstate market results for January 2021. When I say more of the same, it is way more of the same. Sales for last month were up 20% compared to a year ago. There were 2,727 closed sales last month compared to 2,270 in January 2020. But wait there's more... Prices climbed 12% compared to a year ago. The median price held steady compared to the prior month, but jumped from $245,000 a year ago to $275,000 over the last three months. If a 20% hike in sales, and a 12% jump in prices don't get your attention, perhaps the 40% plunge in the number of homes available for sale will do it. In the last year the number of homes available for sale in the Orlando metro area has plummeted from 7,030 (which is low to beg...

The #OrlandoRealEstate market report for December is more of the same. Sales are soaring, and inventory is in a freefall. This is pushing prices ever higher. Sales in December were up 21% compared to a year ago with 3,672 closed sales compared to 3,033 in 2019. The inventory of homes available for sale has absolutely plummeted 31% over the same time period. As of the end of December only 4,875 homes of all types were available for sale, giving Orlando just over a 1.3 month supply of inventory. The continued strong demand for homes, and declining inventory pushed prices up 10% year over year. The median sales price was up from $249,000 to $275,000.

 Orlando Real Estate Spotlight: The Benefits of Buying a New Construction Home. It’s no secret that the real estate market in Central Florida is booming. After a brief slump last March, not even the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic can stop the market from appreciating at a rate of at least 7% year-on-year.This has led to something of a predicament: We’re rapidly approaching a housing stock shortage, with homes often selling above their asking price, as buyers attempt to out-bid the completion to secure their dream property.This situation hasn’t gone unnoticed by developers: New builds are springing up across the state in a bid to cash in whilst demand remains strong.  Is a New Construction Right For You?In this article, we’re going to explain the perks of new construction homes for those of y...
