The Median Sales Price for homes in the Orlando area as we all know has decreased significantly. Everyone is asking, where's the bottom. Well, I'll be the first to say that I see the bottom. I will go on record to say that we're almost there. I pulled this trend chart from Trulia and it represents the median sales price of homes. The most important lines are the black and purple. The black line is actual sales of the median priced home. Notice that this jumped out of proportion Jan.1 2004. If prices had not jumped due to supply and demand and had just progressed normally at a 3-5% increase, that average which is represented by the purple line would be approx. $205,000 today. However, the actual today is at $225,000. Therefore, I see the market still correcting another 10% and possibly more. Nothing says that we can't go below this line. That may be possible for a short period of time to clear out the foreclosures and short sales. So there it is, my crystal ball is telling me that the market in Orlando will continue to decrease another 10% - 15% overall before we stablize.
