The lack of condos for sale, problems with complexes which don’t qualify for FHA financing and buyer indecision continue to impact the greater Cincinnati condo market.  The chart below compares listing prices to sale prices for the past 12 months.  This month’s numbers show a trend of higher list prices and lower sale prices.  An interesting spike occurred in mid October when both the listing and sales prices inched their way up.  Stay tune for the next month’s report to find out if the gains continue.

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.  Once again the lack of FHA/VA approval or overpricing are the 2 main reasons impacting the condo market.  Also the new rules affecting closings went into effect in October and ultimately may have impacted some of the closings that were scheduled for November but were delayed by lenders.
