Fairfax Ridge Current condos have been on the market for an average of 105 days. Now there are 4 condos that have skewed this average very high. These are all regular sales and by the numbers these owners are relectant to drop there price to the current market level, because either they owe more on their mortgage or think their condo is worth more. Either way, they will continue to sit on the market longer. These 4 condos have been on the market averaged between them 327 days. Do not make the mistake of overpricing your condo or you will end up like them.
