Following last years marginal decline in condo sales, 2017 recorded an increase in 13.18% reaching an all-time high of 395 sales. The last time the market was even close to that number, was 2005 with 368 condo sales. The median pricing also increased by 10.18%.

In many ways new construction, often at a high price-point, is creating a new market dynamic, especially as more units are completed.
