The Orlando housing market is obviously a tremendous one. Even if you leave out the larger metropolitan area there are around 16,000 home sales here each year. For those that are wondering yes that is nearly 3,000 more than Tampa at least in 2021.
The housing market in Orlando should not be evaluated in it's entirety if you are considering moving here or placing a home up for sale. Orlando FL has individual areas with unique characteristics that give those areas their value. Namely there is only one downtown Orlando, Lake Nona and Dr Phillips. There are some other areas but those are the hottest markets at least for now. Southern Orlando is another option just not yet as interesting.
I will be posting this information each month. You can bookmark it and return to get the latest numbers if you choose and feel free to ling to this page for others to reference. All of the information I use will be from Stellar MLS which local Realtors all use for sales data etc.
The median price is what I am going by. I use it because it prevents extreme pricing from having a great effect on the number. I derive the median price based on the previous 30 days of data. The previous 30-60 days prior is what I compare the most current numbers to to detect movement. First let's start by looking at Orlando as a whole and the three main types of housing and the median price paid for them in the previous 30 days.
Those are the prices paid in the previous month compared to two months ago in the Orlando Housing market. Now lets look at some specific areas of interest.
Will these tends continue? Time will tell and you will need to check back and see. First let's talk about some housing indicators, prophets of doom, prophets of prosperity and the foreclosure market.
There is always the possibility of an unknown major event effecting the housing market in Orlando or even nation wide. Nobody knows everything and neither do I or I would would figure out a way to feed the world and get everyone clean water. Here are just a few things to look for as signs of a collapse.
This may surprise you because the number is so low. This number is for all of Orlando Florida. In the previous 30 days 4 homes sold that were either Auctioned, Short Sales or Bank Owned. The previous 30 day period which was 30-60 days ago that number was 9. Those are not signs of impending doom are they? Especially when there were around 1,205 home sales in the last 30 days.
At this point I personally would still buy before interest rates go up. In ten years most likely prices and interest rates will be much higher. Buy location, buy affordable to you and try not to buy the most expensive home in any community. Only one person wanted it, that is not a good sign for re-sale.
