February 2021 Recap

State of the Market

  • The number of homes for sale in the Orlando market plummeted by 50% from February 2020 to February 2021. This marks the lowest inventory since May 2005, putting an even tighter squeeze on the market, as demand remains high.
  • The supply of homes stands at 1.14 months, less than half of what it was in February 2020 (2.71). A healthy market has a six-month supply
  • The median home price continues to rise, with February’s median price at $280,000 up 2% over January.
  • Interest rates continued to rise for a second straight month to an average of 2.88% in February 2021. That number, however, is still lower than the interest rate in February 2020, which was 3.43%.
  • “The new numbers illustrate just how far the market is tipped in favor of sellers. Sellers are receiving multiple offers, often above their asking price, and buyers are engaging in bidding wars with people looking to move to Orlando from other states,” said Natalie Arrowsmith, 2021 Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association President, NextHome Arrowsmith Realty. “There are not nearly enough homes on the market to meet the demand from people who want to buy homes right now.”
