Real Estate Statistics for Lake County, Florida - February 2013
There were a total of 391 closed sales in February 2013 for the Lake and Sumter County Florida area, compared to 371 closed sales in February 2012. Closed sales in February reflect the purchasing in January.
The average selling price for February 2013, in the Mount Dora, Eustis, & Tavares greater area was $131,104 compared to an average selling price of $129,396 for the same period in 2012.
The average number of days a house was on the market in the Golden Triangle Area of Lake County, Florida was 130 days, about the same as the same period in 2012. The number of months of inventory has dropped from 10.3 months a year ago to 7.3 months. Currently there are 2,844 homes available in the Greater Lake and Sumter County area compared to 3,813 last year at this time.
The feeling in the Central Florida area, particularly in the Lake County region is that this area reached the “bottom” of the market this past Summer (2012). There is quite a bit of activity in the “higher end” homes. As well, we are also finding it harder to find homes in the $100-250K range that are in good shape, due to the lack of inventory.

- Economists revise housing figures amid optimism
NEW YORK – March 15, 2013 – Several economists have recently revised their predictions on housing values to reflect a stronger-than-expected real estate rebound, and some have even doubled their original forecasts over the rise in home prices. For example, economists at Bank of America revised their home price forecast from 4.7 percent this year to 8 percent.
Capital Economics’ Economist Paul Diggle upwardly revised his home price forecast too, from a 5 percent projection to an 8 percent rise in home prices this year.
“Prices of both new and existing homes are picking up, the latter by over 10 percent year-on-year,” Diggle notes. “Indeed, after a couple of years during which new house prices outperformed, primarily owing to builders constructing more homes for the higher-end market, we now expect existing house prices to close the gap. As more consumers are able to access mortgage credit, home builders should widen their offering, while continued investment demand will bid up existing house prices.”
Consumers are growing more optimistic about home prices too. A recent report of consumers from mortgage giant Fannie Mae showed that 48 percent believe home prices will rise over the next year.
Ivy Zelman, an independent real estate analyst, told CNBC last week that “we’re in a nirvana for housing. I’m the most bullish I’ve ever been.” Zelman said that home prices could rise for another four to six years.

- Fla.’s housing market continues upswing in Jan. 2013
NAR: Jan. existing-home
sales hold with steady price gains
ORLANDO, Fla. – Feb. 21, 2013 – Florida’s housing market
reported increased sales, higher median prices, more pending sales and the
continued shrinking of inventory levels in January, according to the latest
housing data released by Florida Realtors®.
“This year started out strong for Florida’s housing market,” said 2013 Florida
Realtors President Dean Asher, broker-owner with Don Asher & Associates
Inc. in Orlando. “Homes sales continue to rise, mortgage rates remain near
historic lows and the inventory of for-sale homes is lower than it’s been in
years. Plus, the time it takes for a home to sell is dropping; the median days
a home is on the market declined about 15 percent for both single-family homes
and for townhome-condo properties. However, overly restrictive credit
requirements remain an obstacle for many potential buyers, who find it
difficult to access affordable financing options.”
Statewide closed sales of existing single-family homes totaled 13,679 in
January, up 11.7 percent compared to the year-ago figure, according to data
from Florida Realtors Industry Data and Analysis department in partnership with
local Realtor boards/associations. Closed sales typically occur 30 to 90 days
after sales contracts are written.
Meanwhile, pending sales – contracts that are signed but not yet completed or
closed – for existing single-family homes last month rose 31 percent over the
previous January. The statewide median sales price for single-family existing
homes last month was $145,000, up 12.4 percent from the previous year.
According to the National Association of Realtors® (NAR), the national median
sales price for existing single-family homes in December 2012 was $180,300, up
10.9 percent from the previous year. In California, the statewide median sales price
for single-family existing homes in December was $366,930; in Massachusetts, it
was $303,500; in Maryland, it was $243,741; and in New York, it was $229,000.
The median is the midpoint; half the homes sold for more, half for less.
Housing industry analysts note that sales of foreclosures and other distressed
properties downwardly distort the median price because they generally sell at a
discount relative to traditional homes.
Looking at Florida’s year-to-year comparison for sales of townhouse-condos, a
total of 6,670 units sold statewide last month, up 2 percent compared to
January 2012. Meanwhile, pending sales for townhouse-condos in January
increased 17 percent compared to the year-ago figure. The statewide median for
townhouse-condo properties was $112,000, up 18 percent over the previous year.
NAR reported that the national median existing condo price in December 2012 was
This is the 13th month in a row that statewide median sales prices for both
single-family homes and for townhouse-condo units have increased
year-over-year, according to Florida Realtors’ data.
The inventory for single-family homes stood at a 5.6-months’ supply in January;
inventory for townhouse-condos was at a 6.2-months’ supply, according to
“I’m particularly impressed with the rise in percentage of list price received
by sellers,” said Florida Realtors Chief Economist Dr. John Tuccillo, referring
to the January data. Sellers of single-family existing homes in January
received an average of 92.2 percent of their original list price; sellers of
townhome-condo units received an average of 93 percent.
“This can encourage other potential sellers to come forward, thus easing the
market’s inventory crunch,” Tuccillo noted. “But, despite the progress of Florida’s
housing market, it’s still being held back by the difficulty consumers have in
According to Freddie Mac, the interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage
averaged 3.41 percent in January 2013, down from the 3.92 percent average
during the same month a year earlier.
