No lack of buyers looking for a condo to buy however the number of condos for sale just a lack of inventory with just 711 listed for sale.
Sales volume comparing year-to-date in the 4 counties continues to outpace last year. Data pulled from the CincyMLS.
And while the sales volume is one trend to follow -the average sale price is what most buyers and sellers always ask about. In all the counties except Hamilton the average sale price is higher this year than last year at the end of April. The average sale price for a condo January- May, 2015 was $139,930 and during the same time frame in 2016 $140,867 according to the Cincy MLS. A slight increase in the average sale price but not as much as many sellers need in order to be able to afford selling at this time. There are still many condo owners who purchased during the boom times and while they cannot afford to pay the mortgage they cannot afford to bring large sums of money to the closing table.
