August 2021 Recap

State of the Market

  • Orlando’s median home price remained unchanged in August 2021 from the prior month – a record-high $320,000. The median price is 16% higher than August 2020’s $275,000.
  • Sales fell for a second straight month this summer. In August 2021, sales dropped 4.4% from the previous month.
  • Homes spent just 25 days on the market in August 2021, which is a record low. That is half the time homes spent on the market during the same month in 2020.
  • For a fourth straight month, inventory increased, after reaching its lowest point in April 2021. This is in line with national trends from the National Association of REALTORS®.
  • “It’s important to note that interest rates have remained low, which continues to drive demand, especially among first-time homebuyers. Despite our inventory increases, there are still not enough homes on the market to accommodate buyers,” said Natalie Arrowsmith, 2021 Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association President, NextHome Arrowsmith Realty. “As we head into fall and the market continues its cool-down, the seller still has the upper-hand. Buyers should have their financing in order and be prepared to make a strong offer.”
