Ocala area home sales for the last few months have been down from the peak months of March through August when sales were around 375 per month. See all of 2010 Ocala Marion County homes sales reports. I don’t know the reason for this decline. It can’t be the first time buyers tax credit, which expired on April 30, as claimed by the Nation Association of Realtors because sales were constant until August.
If you’re into market statistics like I am then check out the above link to all this years reports. There is an obvious decline in the $100,000- to $200,000- price range. This months sales in that range are about half of what it was in the spring of this year. Once again I have no explanation. I actually think the $100-200,000- price range is a real sweet spot. This is where you find a pretty nice house that doesn’t need much if any work.

After a nice warm Thanksgiving with temperatures around 80, the first week of December begins with a cold front and temperatures in the lower 60′s. The 60′s might not seem bad if you’re some where up north but to me it seems pretty cold. Just last week I was eating my turkey dinner on the lanai by the pool.
Winter in Ocala, is a series of cold fronts with a warm up until the next front comes along. Sometimes the cold fronts are close together and other times weeks apart. December in Ocala has an average high of 72 and a low of 47. See my Ocala weather page, on my web site, for all the monthly average temperatures and precipitation here in Ocala.
The National Weather Service out of Jacksonville, which covers the Ocala area, is predicting a warmer than normal winter. Apparently an El Nina out in the Pacific will give the Ocala area a warmer and dryer than normal winter this year.
Once again, despite predictions, Florida escaped without a major hurricane. If you’re concerned about hurricanes, Ocala is one of the safest places in the state of Florida.
