This gives us an absorption rate of 5. Which means if no more condos came on the market today it would take an average of 5 months to sell your current condo.

Here’s the breakdown of all active listings in MLS:

8 - 1 bedroom units
11 -2 bedroom units


According to MLS, there were 2 new listing last week.


According to MLS, there are 3 condos under contract. 2 of these are bank owned properties and 1 is a short sale.

It looks like the bank owned condos are selling much more quickly then regular sales. If you are thinking about selling, make sure you price your condo competitively or it will sit on the market for at least 5 months.

The price range for Fairfax Condos is excellent for first time home buyers and we have a lot of people looking at these condos. But you have to know what condos are selling for around you and at other condo developments to give your condo the best chance of selling.
