Housing market stats were just recently released for the month of January by the Orlando Regional Realtor Association, and overall, we didn’t see anything too out of the ordinary.

Total sales only jumped by 0.5% compared to January 2017, while the overall median price of sold homes in Orlando increased by 12.6% from $199,900 to $225,000 year-over-year.

Compared to December, sales did drop by almost 27%, although with many buyers rushing to close in December in order to take advantage of tax benefits for the year, the month-to-month decline from December to January is historically quite common.

Inventory remains to be a challenge facing the Central Florida market heading into the busy spring season, especially given that pending sales in January increased

Central Florida Real Estate NewsIf you’re wondering where some of the hottest parts of Central Florida’s housing market are right now, look no further than highly-desirable Winter Garden.

More and more people are moving to Florida these days, and many of those transplants are opting for Central Florida over any other part of the state.

Orlando Area Real Estate MarketAlthough limited inventory has continued to drive Orlando area home prices up in recent months, some economists and mortgage analysts say a slowdown in price gains could be on the way in 2018.

Affordable price ranges are where supply shortages are most prominent, and that’s an issue the many industry pros are worried about as we dive deeper into 2018.

Believe it or not, around 17% of all Metro Orlando homes sold for over asking price in 2017, which averaged out to be an extra
