Orlando Median Price Rise In September

Orlando median price and sales both rise in September inventory dips

Orlando’s housing market in September recorded year-over-year increases in both sales (7%) and median price (5%). The inventory of home available for purchase, however, saw a second consecutive decline after nine months of positive postings.

The unexpected boost in post-summertime sales can be attributed in part to encouragement from falling interest rates.The average interest rate paid by Orlando homebuyers have dropped each month this year since February, and the September average rate of 3.68% is down 21% from the September 2018 average rate of 4.66 percent.lower interest rates help homebuyers overcome rising prices by providing more purchasing power.
