December 2022 Recap

State of the Market

  • “The white-hot seller's market we saw last year is over as we’re now seeing a more traditional market,” said Lisa Hill, 2023 Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association President. “Inventory is on the rise, giving buyers more options. However, those buyers are also faced with higher interest rates, which will have the biggest impact on the market in 2023.”

  • December’s median home price was recorded at $353,200, down from November’s median home price of $360,000. The overall median home price in 2022 was recorded at $365,000, an all-time high and a 17.7% increase compared to 2021 when the overall median home price was recorded at $310,000.

  • Overall sales in December increased by 11.7% from November, with 2,230 sales recorded. Overall sales in 2022 decreased by 16.3% with a total of 38,162 sales. Overall sales in 2021 were recorded at 45,572.
