There is a shortage of houses on the market in orlando— particularly in affordable price ranges — is a concern for the region’s leading industry group.
The core Orlando housing market, which includes mostly Orange and Seminole counties, had the lowest year-end supply of listings in more than 10 years. Home prices grew 10.7 percent during the last year, according to a report released Tuesday by the Orlando Regional Realtor Association.
“We also expect low inventory to continue to exert its influence on the market in 2018, especially in the highly desired low-priced categories,” said Lou Nimkoff, president of the association. “In fact, the lack of affordable housing in Orlando is a concern that Realtors anticipate will be at the forefront of community discussion in 2018.”
Orlando’s house-hunt competition was further apparent in a recent Zillow report showing 17 percent of Metro Orlando houses selling for more than the asking price during 2017. The amount buyers paid over asking price was a midpoint of 2.6 percent, or about $5,000. The bidding-war competition isn’t new for the region. Five years ago, more than 22 percent of Orlando houses sold for more than the asking price, according to Zillow.
The Orlando Regional Realtor Association reported the Orlando market closed out the year with a median price of $230,000, which was up from $224,995 in November; members of the association closed on 3,006 sales for December. January could shape up to see a slower pace of sales because the market had fewer pending sales, 3,792 in December, fewer than at any year-end since 2008.

"I started working with Lance 18 months ago when we decided to move our offices to Florida. We wanted a home to base the offices that also allow us a place to stay. We rented for a year and then went on to buy a new home all through Lance. We gave Lance the basic description and he showed us homes that met our objective. He supported us in the rental and worked in our behalf on the purchase. Have a business owned home adds to HOA requirements and he worked with both the HOA and US Postal service to get us what we wanted. We are now in our 6-bedroom home in a gated golf community and we love our corporate office. When I come to work with our FL based team I stay in this wonderful home. Thank you Lance! "
