Demand remains so high, new listings are snatched up almost as soon as they’re on the market.

May 2021 Recap

State of the Market

  • Median home prices in the Orlando area are now at their highest in ORRA’s recorded history. In May 2021, the median home price was $300,000, up 15% from May 2020.
  • While inventory is on the rise for the first time since September 2020, listings in May 2021 spent only 36 days on the market – the fastest time frame since the Great Recession from 2007-2009.
  • A fall in sales from April 2021 to May 2021, due to inventory shortages, is in line with national trends, reported by the National Association of REALTORS®. Both nationally and in the Orlando area, housing demand continues to dramatically outpace supply.
  • “Demand remains so high, new listings are snatched up almost as soon as they’re on the market. While inventory has increased, there is a long line of buyers waiting for homes to hit the market,” said Natalie Arrowsmith, 2021 Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association President, NextHome Arrowsmith Realty. “With low interest rates and record prices, we are seeing an increasing number of sellers looking to take advantage of the market conditions as we move into summer.”
