Data from Orlando Regional Realtor® Association’s May Market Report shows Orlando-area home values up 12.2% for April 2020

Orlando Regional Realtor Association® reports Central Florida median home value up 12.2% year-over-year in its May 2020 Market Report. Median value now at $263,750 with ADOM holding at only 47 days. Major decline of 28% in home sales as the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is becoming apparent. The on-going decline in inventory slowed to 2.9% year-over-year with a current pace of only 2.4 months supply. Experts consider 6 months supply as a balanced market. Data is indicative a “Seller’s Market” with an extremely robust demand for housing with declining supply available for purchase. Only 105 distress sales closed across the Orlando Metropolitan Area during the entire month of April 2020, a market that has almost completely depleted. Distressed properties are only comprising less than 3% of all sales. As measured by the median home value, Central Florida is finally within $700 of peak of July 2007, where the median home value was reported as $264,436. It’s taken 9.5 years since the market bottom on January 2011 for the market to recover & attain peak level of the mid-2000’s real estate boom.
