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...

Low interest rates and strong demand for housing in Orlando has continued to push sales higher. Last month #OrlandoRealEstate sales climbed 25% compared to a year ago. During the same time, the number of homes available for sale plummeted 25%, leaving us with just a little more than a 1.6 month supply of inventory. High demand and low supply has pushed the median price up 12% to $269,950. Check out the latest market report in this brief video.

Orlando real estate sales and prices up double digits, but inventory plunges. Sales last month were up 16% compared to a year ago, with 3,478 closed sales of all types of homes. The strong demand pushed prices up 10% compared to last year with a median sales price of $270,000. The number of homes available for sales continues to drop with only 5,972 homes of all types currently on the market. That is a 23% drop from last September. With such strong sales, and such low inventory, we currently have only about 1.7 months supply of homes available for sale here in Orlando. While this represents a very strong seller's market, interest rates below 3% make this a great time to buy as well. Check out this short video breaking down the #OrlandoRealEstate market results for September 2020.

Foreclosure. It’s a word that elicits feelings of fear in the hearts of most homeowners. In 2019, Florida saw an increase in foreclosures even as, nationally, they were decreasing. Given the economics of 2020, most professionals believe that foreclosures will depress prices in Orlando and the rest of Florida for the foreseeable future. Perhaps even sadder than the foreclosures themselves is knowing that every person could avoid foreclosure and sell their house Orlando. Nobody ever has to have a foreclosure on their record. If you’re facing foreclosure, here’s how you can avoid it!The Foreclosure Process in FloridaThe foreclosure process in Florida is usually reasonably lengthy, taking an average of 8 to 14 months. It all starts with the first missed payment on your mortgage. The bank wi...

Low interest rates, strong demand and declining inventory pushed the median price up double digits here in The City Beautiful. We saw an increase in sales of 4% last month compared with a year ago. I think we could have seen much better sales if it were not for the staggering 22% drop in homes available for sale since August of 2019. The median sales price soared 10% going from $250,000 last year to an all time high of $275,000 last month. At last month's sales pace, we are down to less than a 1.7 month supply of inventory.#OrlandoRealEstate #Remax #Realtor

Orlando real estate sales and prices are both up for July 2020, even as inventory plummets 22% compared to a year ago. The official closed sales number comes in way lower than what I saw in the multiple listing service, but still up from a year ago. 3,679 sales were recorded compared to 3,628 in July 2019. The median sales price rose to a new high of $270,000 up 9% from last year's $247,300. With strong sales and sinking inventory, currently Orlando has less than a 1.7 month supply of homes available for sale. Check out this brief video breakdown.#OrlandoRealEstate

Short Selling? What is a Short Sale? NOW IS THE TIME to call if you have ever thought about short selling.Short Sale Specialists in Central and South FLWhat is a short sale?  This is anytime a lender is willing to accept lower than the payoff amount of the loan.  Now you may ask, "why would they do this?"  There are several reasons, but mainly any time they can prevent a foreclosure and receive some money for the property, they are making a better business decision.Without getting to deep in detail, the process is extremely complicated and takes time, but it can be most rewarding to a seller who has kept good credit only to now face foreclosure and extremely beneficial to a buyer who has the opportunity to purchase a wonderful deal on a great property.  As a real estate agent and CERTIF...
