4th Quarter 2018 Winter Garden

4th Quarter 2017 Winter Garden

It is always important when breaking down a market to go deeper than most, every quarter in a year has its own challenges or benefits. the 4th quarter is no different. It is the fiscal end of almost every builder in the country so, year end push for final numbers is a billion dollar business. Every year more and more new home construction is being listed on the MLS.  The 4th quarter also has several major holidays to deal with as well.

4th Quarter 2017 to 2018
Increase in Average sale Price
Increase in Median Sale Price
Increase in Days on Market
Increase in $/ft

As you can see from the graphics above… Winter Garden real estate, yet again, crushed the national averages in every important real estate category. The over 8% spike from 2017 to 2018 in average sale price was amazing, but the demand was so high that accurately priced homes in the zip code closed on average 8 days sooner than in 2017! That is a 17% improvement year to year.

Single-Family Homes 4th Quarter 2018 Winter Garden

As Ron the Realtor does with every aspect of his reports, he drills down even deeper… the above tables contain EVERY unit sold, including townhomes and single family. They are really 2 different markets in my opinion. Lets remove all townhomes and condo sales and deal only with single-family homes in Winter Garden in the 4th Qtr

4th Quarter 2018 Winter Garden

4th Quarter 2017 Winter Garden

6.3% increase $/ft

10.3% Increase In Average Sale Price

5.5% Average Day on Market Improvement


So all the data has been compiled and analyzed. The Winter Garden market has been a tear last 7 years, outperforming the other local markets and crushing the National Averages in every category. At some point, things have to slow down. Seems this may be that time… 1.8% jump median sale prices, 0% in average $/ft… from 3rd to 4th quarter of 2018. On the 12-month level Winter Garden is CRUSHING it with Double-Digit increases on average and median sale prices, as well as $/ft. The average sale price did spike from 3rd to 4th quarter a massive 4.5% but this is mainly due to all the new homes closing out for the end of the year. You always need to apply the REAL WORLD to the data world, so you do not get caught up in miscalculating the future projections.

Let’s keep in perspective that the median sale price for the entire ORLANDO METROPOLITAN AREA is currently $233,000 according to ORRA website. Winter Garden’s median sale price for the 4th qtr was $ 350,000! Typically the lower your numbers the higher the percentage of increase, since it does not take as much to raise a percentage point… Orlando jumped 3% year to year in median sale price… … WINTER GARDEN JUMPED 6.3% with 100k more of basis $.
As an avid reader of the RTR Ramblings, you know Winter Garden is one of the most unique real estate markets in the country, it is actually the tale of 3 cities in one and 2 major high school districts. The Historic Downtown revitalization area, the region around the 429 expressway spurred on by the 2002-2007 building boom and now Horizons West, with massive home construction that this area has never seen. All 3 areas bring their own flair to this amazing area and why Winter Garden is one of the greatest places to live in the Country.
