A recent article from the Orlando Regional Realtor Association (ORRA) reports that home values in Orlando are on the rise, due to a low interest rate of 3.21%.

The ORRA found that median home values in Orlando have increased by 20% since February 2012. These promising statistics are reflected across the board in all sales types.

The ORRA Chairman, Steve Merchant, optimistically explains that “we are in a solid seller’s market with minimal inventory and huge demand from buyers seeking to take advantage of interest rates”. Orlando homes have now met the halfway point from their 2007 values – which shows just how far the market has already come.

There has been an 11.54% increase in sales this February, compared to last February. More good news: foreclosures have decreased by 6.69%, and the affordability index is 248.38% (an affordability index over 100% means those who earn a median-level of income make more than is necessary to qualify for a median-priced home).

As our investors know, the time is certainly ripe to buy in Orlando, Florida. The market continues to become stronger and we are seeing extremely favourable trends.
