State of the Condo MarketPublished: 19 November 2013 - Author: Marcus Burke
According to a recent report by Movoto Real Estate, the price for condos increased in October when compared to the same time a year ago. This increase, caused by a lack inventory, is good news for sellers. Nevertheless, while the current market favors sellers, month-over-month data indicates that more condos are coming on the market, which will adversely affect list prices.
In the past year, the median list price per square foot index for a condo increased from $200 to $222, or 11.4 percent. During the same 12 month period, inventory remained almost flat at about 29,200 units.
Nevertheless, inventory levels have remained flat or increased on a month-over-month basis since January. If this trend continues, buyers will have more purchasing power, as there will be more units for them to choose from and decreased competition.
