Orlando home prices improve for 13th straight month

A good article here.  In dealing with sales versus property management/leasing, some things are different and some things the same.  One place where you can always find common (albeit frustrating) ground lies in the arena of unrealistic expectations.  Buyers want to pay as little as possible, sellers want to get as much as possible.  Renters want to pay as little as possible, homeowners want to get as much as possible- and both scenarios share the fact that neither side really cares what the other side wants.

Soooooo….When I meet with a prospective owner or tenant, I tell them that no matter how much one wants to get or how little the other wants to pay, the market is what it is.

For a good while, the buyers and renters/tenant prospects had the upper hand- with sellers/homeowners being forced to come down and meet them.  This recent information is encouraging, especially for those sellers/homeowners- in that buyers are now having to come up to meet them.

The good thing for all is that unrealistic expectations on both sides are changing- and it’s a good thing from my perspective in that this rising tide will lift all boats and provide more evidence that renters must change theirs as well.
