We will look at current Ventura Condo sales figures and compare these Condo sales figures to prior periods to get a sense of price trends.
I will use the term Condos, short for Condominiums. Here locally, we use the terms Condos and Townhomes interchangeably.
Home buyers interested in downsizing to a more manageable low-maintenance home, as well, as those looking to begin their home ownership journey, will want to check out the Ventura Condo Price Report April 2017.
The inventory of Ventura Condos on the market is still low, and we have 2 less condos on the market than we did at the time of my report last month. There are 27 Ventura Condos available for sale without accepted offers at the time of this writing.
When we look at the inventory numbers and the number of condos sold each month, we then can analyze if the Ventura Condo Market is a Buyer or Seller’s Market.
The Ventura Condo Market definitely falls into a Seller’s Market.
What a Seller’s Market means generally is, if a condo is priced correctly according to recent market value comps, then it will be more difficult to negotiate a lower price since there will be more buyers than available condos to purchase. A supply and demand issue.
The Median price rose 6.24% from April 2016. This price point inched up 1.22% from what was cumulatively recorded for the last 3 months.
The Median Sales Price is the point at which half of homes sold for more and half sold for less; it is influenced by the types of homes selling as well as a general change in values.
The Average Sales Price also went up by 11.61% from last April. And the average price remains almost the same as was cumulatively collected for the last three months.
Overall, Ventura Condos are popular, inventory is tight and the overall Ventura Condo Market is appreciating and should continue to do so in the future at a modest rate of appreciation.
Below, one can see on the graph the sales statistics for the last six months.

How difficult will it be to find a Ventura Condo in the 2017?
Understanding the Ventura Condo Market is made a little more complex by not only the variety of inventory available, but by location, overall condition of the Condo itself and the Condo complex, ratio of renters to owners living in the Condos should also be a concern, to name just a few issues to be investigated.
To put your best foot forward when making an offer on a Ventura Condo, you will need to rely on the experience of a local agent who knows the market well and has experience navigating this unique market.
Although not every property attracts multiple offers, many of them do, so when you find a Condo you want to make yours, you’ll need to be not only ready, willing and able to buy, you’ll quite often need to do it quickly.
Remember the first step in your search for a Condo to purchase is to speak to a lender if you need to finance a Condo purchase.
