Up Up and Away

I’ve been a MIA for a few weeks from the blogosphere.  Things have been busy in the real estate industry as you may or may not have heard!  Things are looking UP as we see increases in the number of sales and the sales prices.  It is amazing to hear from other agents in different parts of the country experiencing the same shifting market.  On a national level, home sales are up 12% from last year and 10.6% from 2009 according to a recent HousingWire report and DataQuick News.  The median home price also went up 6% from a year ago this month.

In the Orlando real estate industry, we are seeing the same increases across the board.  This is good news for homeowners who need to sell and may finally have the chance.  We still await the final numbers for June from the Orlando Regional Realtor Association but we do know things are slowly and steadily getting better for now.  Inventory is still on the decline – which is another great reason to list your home now.

The competition is low and the number of buyers is steady.  Selling homes in Orlando full time we often notice that Summer months are particularly busy for home sales.  As you might imagine many people have time off to make the move and get settled into a new home.  Complete the form below for a quick market review to see if now is the right time to sell your home!  Or get more tips by signing up for our FREE webinar – “Sell your Home in 10 days!”
