Inventory— Condos and lofts saw an uptick in inventory last year during the shutdowns but those numbers have settled back in 2021. Inventory looks flat month over month in Washtenaw and its largest condo market, Ann Arbor.

Closed Units— 2021 Sales outpaced last year by 35% and should remain strong as condos become more favorable exiting the pandemic.

Values— Average sales price rose 16% from last year, which was nearly level with the increase in value of single family homes.

Summary— Sales and price per square foot peaked in June, but pending sales activity looks strong. Despite lower inventory levels, sales are up from last year. Demand remains strong but may slow as the market normalizes and seasonal cycles return.
