Spring is upon us. The Orlnado real estate market is going full blast. Inventory continues to creep downward but with plenty of new listings. Buyers are finding a shortage of inventory to pick from and multiple offers seem to be fairly normal in the under $300,000 price range.
Closed sales remain strong in spite of the new financing rules. We now have a 3.3 month supply of homes available for sale. (10,447 inventory / 3,159 sales = 3.3 months' supply). The market is a strong seller's market and sellers are having few problems selling if they price their property correctly.
Prices are up almost 10% since April 2015 as the median price increased to $191,900.
