Inventory: September listings (387) decreased 3.3% from August and declined 9.4% from one year ago. At the current sales pace, all the active inventory on the market would sell in 2.1 months, up from 2 months in August and down from 3.5 months in September 2020. The equilibrium point where buyers and sellers have roughly equal bargaining power is 6 months of supply. 

Pricing: The Baldwin County condo median sales price in September was $422,500, an increase of 22.5% from one year ago and a decrease of 11.1% from August. The differing sample size (number of residential sales of comparative months) can contribute to statistical volatility, including pricing. ACRE recommends consulting with a local real estate professional to discuss pricing, as it will vary from neighborhood to neighborhood.

Condos sold in August averaged 21 days on the market (DOM), a record low and 51 days faster than one year ago. 

Forecast: September sales were 53 units, or 40.5%, above the Alabama Center for Real Estate’s (ACRE) monthly forecast. ACRE projected 131 sales for the month, while actual sales were 184 units. ACRE forecast a total of 1,399 condo sales year-to-date while there were 1,832 actual sales through September, a difference of 30%.
