Buyer Agent - Eye View: Orlando

ORLANDO median home prices climbed 24% in 2013, as short sales dropped 33% and foreclosures dropped 11%.  Normal sales went up 42% as the Central Florida housing market rebounds better than any other large city in Florida.  Overall, home prices are on the rise which is good news for our economy.

Inventory is up by about 25% giving the 2014 homebuyer many more homes to choose from, and a variety of communities.   Florida real estate has always been in demand due to the balmy climate and absence of snow so the perfect weather is a big draw.
