Here is what’s interesting. While property values are still increasing year to year the condo market appears to be slowing down. Most of the other numbers have remained stable year over year. There is a slight increase in inventory and a slight decrease in the number of closed sales. Neither is considered that significant in its own case.
The scary part is when you look at the numbers over the last several months.
Items 7/2017 5/2017 ` Change
Closed Sales 1509 1768 -17%
Median Sales Price $336,000 $335,000 0%
Closed Sales 1075 1420 -24%
Median Sales Price $170,000 $179,500 -5%
If you look at the above there is a slowdown in the number of sales. That is to be somewhat expected as May is just at the end of sales season and there is a bit of a slowdown over the summer. Prices have also slowed down however. The single family home prices have stabilized while the condo prices actually show a decline. Again, it is the summer but before the market last crashed the market stalled first then showed a slight decline then KABOOM! I’m not saying that’s where we are headed but the market does bear watching.
See you next time.
