December was an excellent month for Orlando home sales as they hit 2715 properties. Historically, the month of December shows an increase in closed sales from November, but this is the highest sales recorded in the past 8 years for a December. The available inventory did drop again from the previous month as well, yielding an approximately 4.26 months supply. The Median and Average List and Sales Prices all increased from the previous month, and are the highest since July’s numbers. The Average Sold Price came in at 96.5% of Average Listing Price. And the Average Days on the Market increased slightly to 78 days. All in all this shows well for a healthy Greater Orlando real estate market!
A couple of definitions are in order. The median sales price means that 50% of the homes sold for more and 50% of the homes sold for less during a certain period of time – in other words, it’s the midpoint of sale prices. So basically what this means, is that the median sales price is showing market activity in that it’s specifically indicating which price range is more active.
The average sales price, as opposed to the median sales price, is the total volume of sold properties divided by the number of properties sold.
There needs to be a disclaimer here. These stats are only telling us what it being purchased and happening at a certain period in time. It needs to be fully understood that not only is real estate local, but it is hyper-local. What this means is that the trends that we hear about are overall. Let’s put it this way, what’s happening in one neighborhood may not be realized in the neighborhood next door.
Additionally, these are only monthly statistics and to get a better scope of what is happening, you need to look at a longer period of time. More high-end homes might be sold in one month as opposed to another. By looking at a longer period, you will get a better overall picture. It is all relative and this has to be understood when utilizing these stats.
