Buyer's Market for Condominiums

According to the National Association of Realtors, the Clementi Condo marketplace that is booming is not any longer an edge for sellers. It's turned into a buyer's market throughout America amidst median costs and falling sales. By year end realtors have found the supply of present condos for sale rising by nearly two thirds and sales dropping by nearly 15 percent throughout the country.

According to the National Association of Home Builders, realtors can also anticipate an inflow of improving conversions of rental apartments to condos and new condo development during another two years, adding to the over-availability in the condominium markets.

Sales there last year were down by 21 percent, and there was an 11 percent fall in costs. For August in the San Diego, Carlsbad and San Marcos region, the median condo price was $373,800, as compared to last year the August of 's cost of $387,100.
