Lessons learned:
Seasonal changes impact both condo and homes sales in the greater Cincinnati area.  The traditional “peak season” for real estate has ended and while there a number of condos that have been on the market for some time- buyers are ignoring them and placing offers on new listings.  Lack of FHA/VA approval or overpricing are the 2 main reasons impacting the condo market.
