The media is circulating that the real estate market has now surpassed the peak of 2007. IT’S NOT TRUE! There’s no data presented to support this claim. In researching the ACTUAL sales data for all homes sold, the results are below:
According to ORRA, the median home value for all homes sold in Central Florida peaked at $264,436 in July 2007. As of January 2018, the median home value for all homes sold in was $225,000. Overall prices are still 15% below the peak. Many condo values are still about 40% below the peak! The median home value data is comprised of closed sales for SFHs, condos, town houses, & duplexes. It does not include vacant land or commercial properties.
If you’re interested in the opposite end of the spectrum. The real estate market bottom did NOT occur in 2009 or 2010. It was January 2011 when the median home value for Central Florida bottomed at $94,900.
