"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.
