May 2011 Ann Arbor Condo Real Estate Update

Ann Arbor Condo Stats

At the end of May, inventory for the overall Ann Arbor condo market has dropped and is down 3% when compared to April. With an overall 8 months supply of condos, it continues to be in a buyer's market. 33% of units listed for sale are under contract with a buyer, which is down from 39% at the end of April. Sales have also slightly decreased for the past 12 months. For the first time this year, the under $100k market has entered a buyer's market, while the $100-200k is in a balanced market with a 6.8 months supply. It is an active price range with the number of condos under contract at 41%. The $300-400k and $400-500k markets have remained basically unchanged over the last month. Once you get into the over $500k market, it is a complete buyer’s market with only 4 units selling in the last year and 0 over the $1M mark. The Ann Arbor rental market is very strong, as sellers are choosing to rent their units and are very successful with this. The month’s supply is at a very low 2.6.

In the real estate market, if there is less than a 5 months supply of homes on the market, you are in a seller's market. A 5-7 month supply of homes is a balanced market. Anything over 7 months is a buyer's market.
