So, on to the data!
 
First up is the number of Mason condos sold on a month by month basis for 2013 to present (shortened from 2010 starting in 2019 to provide more clarity):

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

Key takeaways this month: 

  • Sales dropped more than half from the previous month.  At first glance that might scare the bejeebus out of you, but context matters.  The previous month was abnormally large for completed sales, most likely "robbing" September sales.  Average the two months out and you've got a more normal total.
  • Bottom line, the scarcity of condos for sale IS very restrictive and holding Mason back from better sales numbers.  We keep hovering around a dozen condos not under contract each month, and of those, there are usually a few being built in Beacon Hill at close to $400,000 in price.  That price is NOT for every condo buyer.
  • At the more affordable price points, condos are being swarmed.  We recently attended an open house in Village Lakes and our buyer had LOTS of company.  The condo went multiple offers within a couple of days on the market. 
  • Great news if you're a seller?  A median time to contract of 3 days. 
  • 25 condos under contract indicates October should at least match September's total.
  • The majority of the condos continue to sell in the $100-200,000 range.  Only 4 sold for more than $200,000 this month.
  •  There ARE some new construction opportunities not reflected in the 12 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 to be 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 CHANGE THIS MONTH.  The continued 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? 

NO CHANGE 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.
