Inventory—Condo inventory declined slightly compared to last month, but currently available listings (139) are down significantly from last year’s 241 and 2019’s 255.

Closed Units—YTD sales are up 24% and 17% compared to 2020 and 2019 but last month’s 85 closed units were down from 95 in the prior month and the same month in both 2020 and 2019.

Values—Sharp buyer competition this spring caused prices to rise sharply through the spring. They spiked in June with a $248 price per square foot before settling back to around $220. The tight inventory creates opportunity for sellers with move-in-ready properties.

Summary—Values peaked early in the summer with a concentration of high-end units sold in June. Although prices have settled, there was a 6% YOY increase for the past month.
