It’s finally September!  Kids are back in school.  Many are looking forward to some relief from the months of heat.  The peak real estate summer season is now officially over.  Let’s take a look at some Orlando housing statistics.  The latest compiled data we have below is tabulated after July (The final August data will be computed about mid-September).



For the purpose of this discussion, the two important columns to note are the Total Inventory and the Sales Closed.  Total Inventory denotes the Supply.  Sales Closed denotes the Demand.   If you look back at the 18 months in the chart above, the continuous increase of Total Inventory is most remarkable.   A graphical representation of the inventory level is below.  As you can see, since April of 2013 the number of homes for sale in Orlando has been increasing steadily.



We have seen this before.  When supply outpaces demand, the inventory level builds up.  To be clear, we are still in a healthy real estate market, but it is a mature market, far from either extremes.  In this type of market, a seasoned real estate professional is extremely valuable in helping you achieve your real estate goals.  To sell a home in a mature market, the preparation, staging, pricing, marketing, and negotiation are more important than ever.  To buy a home in a mature market, you need a seasoned agent to help you sort through the confusing & overwhelming inventory and pick a winner while negotiating a good price.

The Market is Always Changing!
Market Trend Knowledge is Paramount!

In the last 13 years, Orlando’s real estate market went through an unprecedented upheaval, on a scale much more exaggerated than what the nation experienced as a whole. In early 2000’s, Orlando enjoyed aggressive home price appreciation. This attracted investors & speculators from around the country & even internationally.  This in turn drove the demand to a fevered peak up until early-mid 2005.  We now understand this was driven by unsustainable lending of easy money. The market started turning in late 2005 and spent 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 in decline. In 2011 the market found “saw-tooth bottom”, driven by a different kind of investor demand.  Home prices are have been rebounding since 2012.  We will discuss the current market condition with you in depth.  You need the up-to-date market information to help you make the right decisions.

Get the advice you deserve
The Internet is a great place to find information. But it can't give you the in depth local knowledge and personal service of a local real estate agent. The challenges are getting more complex every day.   Finding the right home for the buyer or bringing the right buyer for the seller is only half the process.  Managing the whole transaction from the skillful negotiation of a contract to finally bringing it to a successful closing takes a full blend of contractual knowledge, transactional experience, patience, diligence, and creativity. You need a professional that is on top of the market who will protect your interests and guide you through the transaction step by step.
