The following information is from the local MLS database, as of June 21, 2008, compared to (June 14, 2008) (and June 23, 2007 – where available).

Number of condos sold (closed) over past 30 days: 488 (456) (550)

Total Market Value, condos for sale: $1,500,820,398 ($1,513,989,315) (N/A)

My thoughts: Under agreements and solds are down 10% from last year at this time, but average and median prices have stayed about the same. Inventory level is down about 7-8%.
