Central Florida’s inventory of available homes for sale has been steadily increasing the past 12 months tipping the real estate market from a sellers market to a buyers almost over night.
Real estate value is still about supply and demand and with the increase of total inventory from 6,937 in March of 2013 to just over 12,000 in July of this year that’s close to double the amount of homes for sale in just 16 months. Today’s home buyers are taking their time sifting through listings and if you include new construction they have plenty of options and are playing that card during negotiations.
The good news for Doctor Phillips real estate and other sought after communities in Metro Orland Florida is that overall averages tend to be much higher. Real estate is local and about local cities, towns and communities. We saw this first hand when established communities like Doctor Phillips started to stabilize in 2010, a good year before outer areas hit bottom.
Today Doctor Phillips has a modest 224 single family homes for sale and out of this only 31 are distressed bank-owned and short sales, a far cry from the bottom of the market in 2009 when markets where flooded with then.
TeamConnect Realtors enjoy writing about the local real estate market in Dr Phillips with a boots on the ground flare. We understand it’s our daily experiences working with buyers and sellers that can help consumers maneuver the ever-changing real estate market today.
This Winter we have been busy circling the wagons and opened a second office off of Migure and Old Winter Garden. With our Dr Phillips location and now our new office at 2704 Rew Suite 105, TeamConnect Realtors have a place to regroup with buyers, write offers or stop in with their clients for a fresh cup of coffee.
Another exiting change was to move our Dr Phillips Real estate blog. With systems like wordpress.org I could no longer resist staying put and moved to a cleaner faster site that will allow our buyers and sellers faster uploading of properties and new listings added throughout the day.
Aside from these two exiting changes TeamConnect Realty is staying the course, living, working and playing in the Dr Phillips, Windermere and Winter Garden communities. Contact us anytime with your real estate questions, no obligation, just friendly experienced Realtors at your service.
