Orlando and Surrounding Area Housing Market Update for January 2023- Todd Mowry Your Local Orlando Realtor
Here we are in a new month and a new year. The housing market is still moving along…it just has slowed down a bit compared to the few torrid paced years we had before. We are also coming into a new year and out of the holidays which is a slower time of year for home sales in general every year. The FED has raised rates again, but they are still staying in the same ballpark of rates that has been the average over the past 30 or so years. The past 30 years the average after the peaks and valleys has been around 6 to 7% and thats where we are. I don’t see 4% or less coming back anytime soon. It would be great, but for all of you holding out for that again..good luck. Right now if you plan on buying a home in the near future… soon… if not now is a good time if you want to have more choices and be able to take your time. The buying cycle has slowed down to more of a normal pace and buyers and sellers can breathe and real contract negotiations and home inspections can go back on again. Buyers have more to choose from and sellers actually have to paint and fix problems that were being overlooked in the past months and couple years. Springtime historically is going to be busier so start looking now if you are ready. Prices might drop more later, but then people are going to start jumping back into the maket and the deals will be there, but have more competition again less time to make a decision.

By partnering with a local market expert, sellers will avoid pricing their house out of the market (the kiss of death in real estate) and buyers will ensure they get a good deal on their next home.
So, how do you accurately calculate a home’s value? After all, the value a home is assigned by its town or county and the one it’s given when it’s listed are often dramatically different from one another. Which one is accurate and what does it all mean? Read on to learn more.
