Monday, August 9th, 2010

Philadelphia SkylineCondo sales in Philadelphia nearly doubled from the first quarter of this year to the second, and the numbers were better than at any time since the housing downturn began here in August 2007, according to Philly.com.

Data from the Recorder of Deeds Office analyzed by Econsult Corp. vice president Kevin Gillen show that 604 condo sales closed citywide between April 1 and June 30. Of those, 477 units sold for less than $500,000, the analysis shows.

More than 200 separate condo locations were recorded, including some in Northeast Philadelphia, South Philadelphia, and East Falls, according to Gillen’s analysis. The majority were in Center City and adjacent neighborhoods.
