Orlando Real Estate Sales Statistics – January 2010

March 1st, 2010 by tisner

Home sales surged in the fourth quarter of 2009 with many areas seeing double digit gains according to the National Association of Realtors. Total existing-home sales (single-family and condo) jumped 13.9 percent above the third quarter and 27.2 percent above the fourth quarter of 2008. Distressed property sales accounted for 32 percent of the fourth quarter transactions, down from 37 percent from 2008.

Lawrence Yun , NAR chief economist, said the first-time home buyer tax credit, combined with record low interest rates, played a dominant role in fourth quarter sales. Yun went on to say, “With inventory levels trending down over the past 18 months, we expect broadly balanced housing market conditions in much of the country by late spring with more areas showing higher prices.”

Let’s look at Orlando real estate sales statistics (residential) for January to see how the housing recovery is progressing locally.

What do these numbers mean to you? An increase in sales is usually followed by an increase in prices. The number of homes sold increased across the board in our local markets in 2009. Even though prices continued to drop, it shouldn’t be long before prices turn the corner and start to tick upward. The market appears to be at its bottom. Now is the time to get your best price on an Orlando home, before the prices move upward.

Remember, the first-time home buyer tax credit has been extended through April 30, 2010 and a new tax credit has been implemented for current home owners. Give us a call to take advantage of your FREE government money!
