  • Summary
  •   Overall – This is odd. The total number of residential unit sales in 2016 is exactly the same as in 2015– 1789 units AND the total number of Lots / Land unit sales for 2016 is exactly the same as in 2015 – 469 units. Yes, the MLS checked the numbers multiple times. The good news for 2016 is that the total volume sold for residential properties is up 3% and for lots / land is up 2%. See the breakdown below:
  •   Inventory – Overall, inventory is down 14% – residential inventory is down 10%, lots / land inventory is down 20% and commercial inventory is down 22%
  •   Residential Sales
    Condo Sales – In 2005, 178 condo units were sold – a record! In 2016, 178 condo units sold tying the record. With unit sales up by 32% over last year it appeared we had a good chance to break the record, but…
    Single Family Detached – In the November report, the MLS said that single family detached unit sales were on track to make 2016 the second-best year since 2005 when 1819 units were sold (in 2015 we sold 1539 units – the second-best year ever). With 1531 units sold this year we missed the mark by 8 units. Still, it was a good year.
  •   Land Sales – Land unit sales are – unchanged from 2015. Total Volume sold is up by 2%, average sale price is up by 2%. Boring!
