Before you start reading this report, take a deep breath and KEEP CALM! When you look at the median price for Mason Ohio condos your first inclination just might be to lose your mind! Or if you're a buyer to think there are some tremendous bargains to be had! But here's the reality, the Mason Ohio condo market is running on fumes when it comes to volume of homes for sale and sold, so the numbers are EASILY moved. For February, it was bargain shopping month in Mason with 5 of the 12 condos sold priced below $100,000. And those 5 cleaned out all the under $100k condos for sale in Mason. There are some left under contract, but as of this report, NONE for sale below $100,000. And with small numbers of condos for sale, under contract or sold, it's easy for the numbers to shift radically.

All data is derived from the Cincinnati MLS system. If any Mason condos traded hands without a REALTOR® involved, then it won't be reflected in this report. All data is for the Mason School District area, so is not limited solely to Mason city limits.
Mason offers a full range of price points, with some entry level condos below $100k and luxury/golf course community condos well into the $300k and even $400k price point. So whether you want an economy condo, or the luxury version, we can help you find the right Mason condo for you!

In general, you can expect to pay a premium for Mason condos when compared to communities further away from Cincinnati, although there is diminished opportunity for condos as you head away from Cincinnati.

*There are two communities offering new construction condos and not all are listed in Cincinnati MLS so they're NOT included in the stats above and will also not show in the search links below. If you're interested in new construction ranch condos at approximately $270-400,000 in price or patio homes in the $350-550,000 range, contact us at 513-520-5305 and we'll provide details.
So what do the stats indicate about Mason Ohio condo sales?
Key takeaways this month:
- The number of homes sold bounced back up and was fairly typical for a Friday. Condos under contract jumped significantly, so expect better numbers in March.
- As we said before, don't put too much value on the condo values for this month. There just weren't enough total sales to provide confidence in the results, and with the bargain shopping, there's a definite push down.
- 5 condos sold below $100k and 3 above $200k.
- This bears repeating from past months: there ARE some new construction opportunities not reflected in the 19 condos for sale, but they're going to cost you around $300,000 or more. Lakeside Cove, Fox Hollow and Beacon Hill offer new construction opportunities if you've got the budget for them. Fyi, Lakeside Cove has poured all their foundations and is almost done with the community. 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 are currently nonexistent. None sold last month, nor the month before and none are currently for sale.
So what does this mean to you as a Mason Ohio condo owner?
NO CHANGE FROM JANUARY. Bottom line: SELLERS HAVE THE EDGE!! With almost no condos for sale the good ones are being snapped up quickly and for very little discount off asking price. Especially in the $225k and below price range. 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.

So what does this mean to you as a potential Mason condo buyer?
ALSO NO CHANGE HERE EITHER: The good condos are selling quickly and selection is VERY, VERY limited. 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.
