Overall sales in 2022 decreased by 16.3% with a total of 38,162 sales. Overall sales in 2021 were recorded at 45,572.

ORRA also says single family home sales decreased in 2022 by 19.1% for a total of 28,022 sales compared to 34,648 sales in 2021. Condo sales also decreased in 2022 by 12.2% for a total of 5,168 sales compared to 5,889 sales in 2021.

"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."

During 2022, interest rates increased each month until October when interest rates reached 6.95%, their highest point in more than 20 years. Interest rates began to fall the two subsequent months, closing out the year at 6.12%. The average interest rate in 2022 was 5.34%.

At the start of the year, inventory was recorded at 2,379 - just 0.78 months of supply. In December 2022, inventory was recorded at 6,351 - 2.85 months of supply. (The real estate market is considered balanced when there is 6 months of supply).

Inventory bottomed out in February 2022, when inventory was recorded at 2,313 - a historic record low dating back to 1995, as far back as ORRA data goes. Inventory steadily increased each month after this, apart from December, when inventory fell 11.8%.

The average monthly inventory for 2022 was 4,997. The average monthly inventory for 2021 was recorded at 3,247.
