Marian’s Market Morsel: Condos

As a follow up to the June 14, 2008 post about the Half Moon Bay Coastside single family homes market, here’s a look at what’s going on in the Condo market:

Inventory – It won’t be accurate to take the same format as I used for single family homes.  Due to the very small market it won’t show much:

  • May 07 – 9 months of inventory; 1 sale ($620,000)
  • January 08 – 11 months; 0 sales
  • May 08 – 14 months; 1 sale ($489,000)

Sales did occur in other months; I’ll present the information by condo development.  There are no condominiums in Moss Beach or Montara; there was no activity in El Granada.  Therefore this is only for Half Moon Bay.  Nineteen condo sales occurred from May 1, 2007 to May 31, 2008.

5 in Cypress Cove – average SP $721,600 (3 3br; 2 2br)
3 in Ocean Corners – average SP $543,000 (1 3br; 2 2br)
4 in Amesport Landing – average SP $475,250 (all 2 br)
7 in Pilarcitos Park – average SP $445,000 (1 3br; 6 2br)

As of today, there are 4 pending with an average list price of $443,500.

There are now 8 active condo listings with an average list price of $538,000.
