Another solid week of improvements as we approach the midpoint of the Spring market. Marginal gains in most areas of the market this week with the exception of condominiums. The condo market has seen a stark contrast to the popular attraction that it has enjoyed over the past few years. The entirety of 2012 did not see the inventory of condos rise more then 280 active units on any given week, this year we have already bumped well into the 300's and if this trend keeps up will soar well above the 400 mark. The change from last year at this time is a grand total of 161 units, a 72% gain! The condo market nation wide has been a booming success and I have seen several markets push back (including our own) and say enough is enough. Although this type of product has its desirability, buyers are flocking back to single family detached and semi-detached homes based on availability and affordability. Not to mention there is an accommodation servicing the other customers for this type of product found under the various cranes of rental units sprouting up all over the city. As the market correction continues for single family homes I can only imagine that condominiums are not too far behind. Thanks for stopping by!
