According to the latest housing data released by the Orlando Regional Realtors Association, Florida’s housing market continues to show growth and recovery. Since March of last year (2012), home prices in the Orlando area have increased by 21.74% to a median home price of $140,000. On a monthly basis, this number is up 5.26% from February 2013’s median price of $133,000.
“March marks the 15th consecutive month that the statewide median sales prices for both single-family homes and for townhouse-condo properties rose year-over-year,” said Florida Realtors President Dean Asher.
One of the main reasons for the jump in home prices is that the number of non-distressed “normal” home sales increased by nearly 50%. Another big driver of home prices is net migration. According to a recent blog by Investor Intelligence, the Orlando metro area grew by 50,000 people last year alone. In addition to this, the dwindling inventory of listings has had an effect on home prices. In March 2013, inventory was 19.95% less than it was in March 2012.
The number of existing homes available for purchase in Orlando is continuing its steady decline that began all the way back in July 2010 at 16,563 homes and is now at 6,937 homes. In March 2013, current inventory combined with the rate of sales created a 2.66-month supply of homes in Orlando, which can be compared with the 3.56-month supply in March 2012.
