Continuing the trend of improved activity since the economic downturn in 2008, 3rd quarter unit volumes for 2013 rose 40% above those for 3rd quarter 2012. While all segments of the market have been active, properties under $1.5 million saw a surge in sales of 64% resulting in 87% of total units sold versus 74% in 3rd quarter 2012. The increased activity in 3rd quarter 2013 has caused 2013 year-to-date dollar volume to rise well ahead of 3rd quarter year-to-date for each of the years between 2008 and 2012. Current 2013 unit and sales volumes are at their highest level since 2008. As a result, inventory is waning, with 22% fewer condos and townhomes in September 2013 versus September 2012 and 18% fewer single family homes. If this trend continues, expect to see prices increase to reflect the lack of supply relative to demand.
