Orlando Housing Market Activity in June 2021
The housing market is still hot for summer! Median prices are still trending upwards, and so are home sales. Though there were fewer than half as many homes available for sale last month as there was the previous June, we saw more homes for sale than we did last month. Homeowners are getting the message: you WILL profit from a sale.
New Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association report shows just three weeks of inventory available, as new listings quickly come under contract.
State of the Market
- Median home prices in the Orlando area reached a new high in June 2021: $315,000. That is a 5% increase from the previous month and a 19% increase over June 2020, when the median home price was $265,000.
- Sales increased 14% from May to June of this year, as the number of new listings continues to rise. This is on par with nationwide trends noted by the National Association of REALTORS®.
- Listings are spending an average of just 29 days on the market, a new post-2007 Recession low.
- Inventory is rising, as more houses are listed for sale. However, there was only .7 months of supply in June 2021, which is a slight drop from May 2021. A balanced market has six months of supply.
“The housing market is continuing to stay hot through the summer. We’re seeing more listings from sellers who are getting top dollar for their homes, while low interest rates continue to boost demand for buyers,” said Natalie Arrowsmith, 2021 Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association President. “The secret is out – people realize they can live where they vacation. The influx of out-of-state buyers is still strong, even as more workers return to the office.”
- ORRA members sold 4,414 homes in June 2021, a 14% increase from the 3,872 homes sold in May 2021. Compared to June 2020, when Central Florida reopened from lockdowns, home sales jumped 42%.
- Average interest rates ticked down slightly to 2.95% in June 2021, a .02% drop from May 2021. This is the third straight month the average interest rate has fallen since it began creeping back up in December 2020.
- Listings spent just 29 days on the market in June 2021. That is one full week less than in May 2021.
- 36 distressed homes (bank-owned properties and short sales) accounted for .8% of all home sales in June 2021, a decline from the previous month.
- Orlando area inventory is down 52.8% from 6,557 homes in June 2020 to just 3,098 homes in June 2021. It has increased 9.8% from 2,822 homes in May 2021.
- The supply of homes was just three weeks in June 2021, staying steady from the two previous months.
- The number of new listings increased for a fourth straight month to 4,617 homes. That is an increase of 21% year-over-year and 7% from May 2021 to June 2021.
