Here to Help You Manage Home-Buying Ups and Downs

Over the years, housing prices in Central Florida have gradually risen higher and higher. For those looking to relocate, expand, or even downsize, finding the perfect fit can be challenging. Because Orlando is a seller’s market, when a homebuyer finds the ideal property for them, there’s pressure to make an offer quickly and sometimes at or above the asking price. This can put a strain on budgets and create concern for buyers, as they watch home prices continue to rise. According to the most recent market recap from Orlando Regional Realtor Association, February 2022 has recorded the highest median home price to date sitting at $345,000. This number reflects a 2.99% increase from the previous month’s median home price. With prices and inventory in a constant state of fluctuation, having flexibility with closing dates, pricing, location, and more can be beneficial to buyers during their search.
