More condos were for sale in July than any month so far this year, but condo sales were still strong.
Median pricing dropped a bit from June to $272,000. This does not reflect a drop in prices, but only that the median price of the condos sold in July was less than what sold in June.
We expect prices to continue to increase. As an example of what's still happening in the market, we just sold a condo in Redmond in less than 2 days for 10% above the asking price! Not all condos or homes, for that matter, are selling over full price because of the increase in inventory. Our listing was staged beautifully, professionally photographed, and priced realistically. It immediately caught the buyer's attention and the seller received a fabulous offer.
Condos were on the market for less than 45 days. It would have taken less than two months to sell all of the inventory available in July.
Since there still are a number of condo owners "under water" who are waiting for prices to increase even more, expect the market to remain strong, even if inventory increases. We still have a shortage of condos for sale when compared to the demand.
