Ocala real estate market

The Ocala real estate market showed signs of stabilization through November of 2022. The impact of the economic upheaval caused by the pandemic appears to be behind us and trends point upward. Additionally, real estate market projections continue to paint a positive picture through the end of 2024 and beyond. However, inventories of homes for sale are still limited, and demand is moderating in the short term. This appears to be a reaction to increasing interest rates. With signs that inflation is a threat, the Fed has recently raised the prime rate significantly. Of course, mortgage rates have risen in reaction to the Fed’s actions. However, the economy has remained resilient and there are signs that inflation is moderating and a recession will likely be avoided.

Over the last few years, our city’s growth rate has been among the fastest in the United States. Since the local market forces supporting future growth are strengthening, we anticipate our economy will thrive in the intermediate to long term. The new World Equestrian Center has opened and will expand in stages over the next few years. As a result, visitors, investors and new residents will be drawn to our metropolitan area. Because of this, we project continued aggressive growth in housing demand over the next decade and farther into the future. Therefore, the Ocala real estate market appears to be on very solid footing.

Our vision is that Ocala is in the early stages of the growth cycle seen by Orlando since Disney arrived in the late sixties. This offer a great opportunity to both homebuyers and investors alike.
