Orlando-area home sales were up 8.2 percent in June compared to the year-ago period, as Realtors closed on 2,612 homes for the month, Florida Realtors reports.
In addition, the median price for a home in June was $185,000, up 8.2 percent over June 2013.
Statewide, Florida’s housing market reported more closed sales, higher median prices, increased new listings and a rise in inventory in June. Closed sales of single-family homes statewide totaled 23,181 last month, up 14.6 percent over June 2013.
“June marked the 31st month in a row — more than 2 ½ years — that median sales prices rose year-over-year for both single-family homes and townhome-condo properties,” said 2014 Florida Realtors President Sherri Meadows. “The state’s steadily improving jobs outlook and rising influx of people continue to have a positive impact on Florida’s housing market.”
