Summer’s gone and Orlando Real estate takes a drop
Prices of Orlando real estate dropped slightly last month for the first in a year. Don’t panic Orlando homeowners, this happens every year at this time. The reason for the drop is mostly due to the ending of peak of the summer buying season. Two facts remain true, Orlando real estate inventory is low and demand for great Orlando properties remains high. As long as these factors remain a part of the Orlando real estate market, sellers will be able to get top dollar for their Orlando Home.
Other factors indicating a strong Orlando Real Estate market
Orlando homes are selling faster and for more than they did a year ago. Studies show that Orlando homes are spending less than 80 days on the market before coming under contract and selling for almost 97% of the listing price. A year ago, Orlando Realty was selling for less than 95% of the listing price and these properties listed on the MLS for over 100 days.
Great mortgage interest rates are still being offered by lenders. The average interest rates currently being offered for Orlando home buyers is at 3.78 percent as opposed to year ago, when home buyers paid an average interest rate of 4.26 percent. This is a huge incentive right now for potential Orlando home buyers and anyone interested in buying real estate in Orlando should definitely take advantage of these historically low interest rates.
There are more regular listings in the Orlando real estate market than has been in years. Although Orlando short sales and REO’s still rule Orlando real estate inventory right now, there is another quieter group that are not desperate to sell their Orlando properties. Believe it or not, every one on three homeowners own their house “free and clear”. This group as well as homeowners with very small mortgages on their home are able to ask for top dollar on their Orlando home and they don’t care if it sells or not. Their way of thinking is “I will sell for the right price and if not then I’m not selling”. I’ve had several clients like this over the years, and homeowners like these actually help to maintain property values up in their neighborhoods because their listing prices remain high and they really don’t care how long it takes to sell.
