Gainesville real estate market June 2020


Posted: August 04, 2020 by Coleen DeGroff

The Gainesville real estate market was negatively impacted in both April and May due to coronavirus restrictions. However, the market rebounded in June as restrictions eased. Pent-up demand from a delayed spring market due to COVID, coupled with historically low interest rates, brought buyers back into the market.

The Florida real estate market as a whole experienced a similar upswing in June.

Here’s a look at some key statistics for June 2020 from the Florida Realtors monthly report for single-family home sales in Gainesville and Alachua County.


Increase in sales price and number of homes sold


Median sale price increased to $270,000 for the month of June. This is an 8% increase from June 2019 when median sale price was $250,000.

What this real estate news means for Gainesville homeowners


Gainesville home buyers anxious to take advantage of historically low interest rates are fighting over the limited amount of houses available for sale. This is great news for Gainesville homeowners who have been considering putting their homes on the market.


In short: We need more houses to sell to meet buyer demand!
