So what do the stats indicate about Mason Ohio condo sales? 

Key takeaways this month: 

  • At first glance you might want to go Chicken Little and think the Mason condo market is totally collapsing.  After all, those are HUGE downward swings in average price, median price and condos sold.  That's just pure ugliness, right?  Well actually, no.  Context is everything in real estate and those price drops can be explained.  Two main influences:  the number of condos sold dropped radically and the mix of prices sold shifted.  The decrease in numbers of condos sold is more than offset by the significant increase in condos under contract.  Bottom line, there's not been enough condos to meet buyer demand, so a low volume month like this one allows for easy shifts in price when there are a few less condos sold on the higher end and an unusual number (3) of condos sold for less than $100k.  Bottom line, the Mason Ohio condo market is still strong.   
  • Mason condos are selling even more quickly, shaving a week off time on average to 11 days, and the median time of 4 days stayed the same.  Good condos are moving REALLY fast.  We've got a buyer watching for the perfect home in one community priced in the low to mid 100s and the two most recent offerings have beaten that 4 day mark for getting under contract.   
  • 3 condos sold for less than $100,000 and only 1 sold for more than $300,000. Again, this price mix is more accountable for the shift in prices rather than a true devaluation of the Mason condo market.
  • There ARE some new construction opportunities not reflected in the 15 condos for sale, but they're going to cost you over $300,000 or more.  Fox Hollow and Beacon Hill offer new construction opportunities if you've got the budget for them.  Immediately adjacent to Mason are some other new construction condos if being directly in Mason isn't a concern.  Contact us for details Liz@LizSpear.com or 513-520-5305.  Patio homes and condos are a specialty of ours.
  • Distressed condos (foreclosures and short sales) for sale continue are currently nonexistent.  None completed sale and none are in the Active condos for sale. 

 

4261 Eastlake Dr Mason OH 45040  condo soldSo what does this mean to you as a Mason Ohio condo owner?

No real change here.  The shortage of condos for sale works to the sellers' advantage, especially in the more affordable price ranges and the ranch condos have higher demand.  Sub $100k condos that are not updated might take longer to sell.  

We have a solid track record for selling Mason condos, so we'd love to help you achieve your real estate goal of selling your Mason condo.

Mason condos will remain in demand because they're an affordable entry point into Mason living versus the average Mason single family home selling well into the $300ks.   The only niche that is a bit slower are the luxury Mason condos, as that segment is competing against new construction. 

For an evaluation of your condo's marketability, please contact us at 513-520-5305.  

So what does this mean to you as a potential Mason condo buyer? 

And no reason to change our advice here either.  The good condos are selling quickly and with limited selection you need to look at new entries on the market quickly.  It won't take long to determine if there's a Mason condo that will work for you.  However, new construction is still a possibility and not all of them make it into MLS (and they're not cheap either).  We can help with those too, even if they're not in Cincinnati MLS.  We represent YOU and not the builder, and it costs you nothing extra to hire us to help you!  

If you HAVE to have a Mason home, but don't like the pricing premium for a regular single family home, Mason condos make a great alternative (but don't forget to factor in the HOA fees).  Use our links below to check availability for your price range.

And if you need an FHA loan to finance, quite a few of the condo communities are NOT eligible for FHA certification.  Check with us to verify the condo that interests you can be FHA financed.  The same applies for VA financing.
