Another two weeks and more of the same. New listings during the last two weeks matched closely with the same period a year ago -- 276 new listings last year and 307 this year, an increase of about 11%.
Virtually all of the increase came in the form of condos. Last year there were 159 new condo listings; this year there were 186.
After four weeks of relatively slow sales of single family homes, in this latest two week period almost 12% of them went into contract during the same period. The rate of sales on condos remained steady at 14.5% which is similar to the rate for the last six weeks.
