Overall Lakeland Florida Real Estate Housing for January 2010

Last year’s overall Lakeland Florida Real Estate market was somewhat of a roller coaster ride with home prices up and down throughout the year.  Will the roller coaster ride continue in 2010? From the graph below you can see that Lakeland home prices have increased since October 2009 by almost 9%.

Lakeland Homes sold in January: 145 - previous month:  194 – previous year January 09: 115 sold

The graph below represents average and median prices in Lakeland for various categories.  When our media provides us with a real estate market reports, generally these reports outline only Single Family Homes and Condominiums. Lakeland Florida has a variety of homes, such as manufactured homes, townhomes, villas and duplex units.

What are the various average prices in each Lakeland zip code?

Lakeland Real Estate Report

Take a look at my spreadsheet below. I’ve separated the report by zip code instead of school zones; it gives you a more accurate report in my opinion. The data and graphs for this report were obtained from the Mid-Florida Regional MLS, it is deemed reliable but not guaranteed. This report does not include “For Sale By Owner”. The numbers highlighted in pink represents the zip codes where average sold prices have exceeded. 


Distressed properties in Lakeland, Florida

For the month of January, Lakeland’s real estate market of distressed homes and bank-owned (REO) properties had a market share of 60%. There were a total of 88 properties sold in January compared to 60 distressed Lakeland homes sold the year prior, according to Mid-Florida Regional MLS.   After further evaluation of my Lakeland Real Estate Market and to my readers who follow the distressed market report closely deserve clarity.  Starting out with January’s Real Estate Report, the distressed market report will have its own report.  Please check back soon for your detailed Lakeland Florida Real Estate report that highlights bank-owned properties (REOs) and Lakeland Short Sales.
