Portland Maine Condos For Sale: An Overview Miniseries
Apr 18, 2017 in Portland Condos
So this past winter I took an 8 month sabbatical to live in Medellin, Colombia to focus on rebuilding this website plus learn a bit of Spanish. :)
I figured as I try to re-educate myself on the market I might as well share the wealth!
The spring real estate market is quickly approaching thus the plan over the next 8 weeks or so is to create an in depth mini-series on condos for sale in Portland ME with a focus on pricing, inventories, new condo development and recent news.
Its always hard I think when starting a new project to know where to begin thus we will start at the top with a look at overview pricing and volume for last year 2016 vs the year prior, 2015.
2016 Condo Pricing & Sold Volume

% Yr Chg
On Peninsula downtown
Prices were up 7% for all condos in Portland aggregated together whilst the downtown market was up 8% with a median price point of 337K compared with around 312K in 2015. Not shown in the data above is the change in Days on Market for new listings down a whopping 24% for Portland to 59 from 79 in 2015.. WOW.
A supply shortage is also contributing to the rising prices as as volume for all of Portland was down 3% year over year and a whopping 8% for downtown Portland condos!
Next week we will delve into downtown market a bit more.. thanks for reading.
