Closed Units— After slowing down in the middle of the pandemic, condo sales have been rebounding. YTD sales are up 31% compared to last year and 19% compared to 2019. Expect the energy of that bounce to ease as we head into the fourth quarter.
Values—Strong demand and buyer competition drove prices up sharply in the spring. Prices have since eased off as many of those who had been looking have now bought. Expect buyer competition and prices to ease as the market returns to more traditional seasonality.
