Winter Park, FL – January 23, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Fannie Hillman + Associates lived up to the old sports adage ‘it’s not how you start, but how you finish’ when the Winter Park firm posted 119 fourth quarter existing home transactions for $43.8 million. Those figures were up 35.3 percent and 45 percent, respectively, over those in the fourth quarter the previous year.
The company’s average fourth quarter sale of $368,067 was up 7.3 percent (+$24,885) over the average sale of $343,182 for a comparable period in 2011, while total 2012 transactions of 387 were up 3.5 percent over those posted in 2011.
“The uptick in transactions and rising prices in what is traditionally a slow quarter, combined with mortgage interest rates that are still very attractive, bodes well for what we can expect to see as we enter 2013. There’s still some work to be done but all signs are encouraging,” said Realtor Scott Hillman, president of the celebrated 32-year-old firm recognized as one of the area’s top residential real estate brokerages and a leader in the sale of luxury lakefront residences in Winter Park and Maitland.
Fannie Hillman continued to play a major role in 2012 luxury lakefront sales, accounting for a third of the 15 transactions made in Winter Park (32789 and 32792) and Maitland (32751).
