Prices were up only 1% year over year, 2017 to 2018.  This is a little understated because there were 150 condos sold that are not reported in the 819 sold units in the MLS data.  Those 150 units are the Pacific Gate brand new condominiums which have an average sales price per square foot about 30% higher than your average resale downtown.  I excluded them from the chart to keep the data consistent over the years which has almost no new developer sales in the previous data points on the chart.
