  • Available inventory of condos ended January with less than 1 month supply of properties available for sale which was a 76.9 percent decline.

Condo sales followed similar patterns as the previous couple of months. Once again, the number of sales and inventory saw declines. Inventory levels of condos are especially challenging with less than a months worth of properties available for sale. Yet, similar to single family homes, there are still opportunities as new listings are added to the market every day.

Bottom line, it remains a seller’s market for both condos and single family homes. So now would be a great time to cash in on the high buyer demand.
