It’s the last month of 2014!  Another year is coming to an end.  We hope it’s been a good year for you, be it financial, professional, familial, personal, or simply individual & spiritual growth.   It’s been another record year for us in real estate.  Many of our clients this year have upsized, downsized, bought a first home, relocated, bought an investment property, or sold an investment property.  Whatever the purpose and reason, we are honored to have been a part of the journey.  Each and every journey we took with clients was special and memorable in some way.  Real estate is likely the largest financial endeavor in our lives.  We are grateful to have been entrusted to be the guides in this process.

The Orlando housing market has finally reached the realm of stability in 2014.  The roller coaster years are behind us now.  The prices have been consistent.  The interest rate remained stable within a range of about 4-4.5% in 2014.  Individuals’ circumstances are the main determinants of timing in this market.  That means there aren’t a lot of external factors that significantly sways things one way or another, so people tend to make the move when they are ready without waiting for a particular event.

We will continue to report market conditions to you as we enter the coming new year.  At this point, 2015 is projected to be another stable year in Orlando real estate.  As we monitor global and national economic movements that will affect us, we will be your eyes and ears in the local real estate market.   In a stable market without large swings, attention to minute details will make a difference in your real estate endeavors.

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.

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.
