"The housing market in 2023 continued to stabilize from the frenzy we saw during COVID-19. Many buyers chose to wait on buying a home amid rising interest rates," said Rose Kemp, 2024 Orlando Regional Realtors Association President. "Interest rates fell near the end of 2023, which enticed buyers who were waiting on the sidelines. Looking ahead, these rates will continue to be the biggest factor in the market."
