  • “As we approach midway through the year, prices continue to rise and homes spend fewer days on the market,” said Lisa Hill, Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association President. “The market cooled near the end of last year, but we have been on an upward trajectory ever since. Many families prefer to save their moves for summer when the kids are out of school, so we will likely be in for a busy selling season these next few months.”
