Cape condo sales and median prices up, supply mixed

September 8, 2017
By BOB and GERI QUINN - Homing In , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

The numbers for the Cape Coral condominium market are tracking on similar trend paths as our single-family home market through the first 7 months of 2017, with solid overall results. The number of condo units sold, along with the average year-to-date median sales prices are both higher across the board, but there is a clear divergence between the various property types when it comes to the supply of unsold condos listed for sale on our market.

As you will see in our condo market breakdown below, this is why it is important for both buyers and sellers to analyze the Cape Coral real estate market trends by specific property types, or segments. By having this more specifically accurate market information, they will be more likely to make better price estimates of their property to maximize the value received.

The total number of all Cape Coral condominiums sold year-to-date, through July 31, is up 11.23 percent with an average of 59.43 units sold per month, compared to an average of 53.43 sold per month over the first 7 months of 2016.
