Downtown Cincinnati, Inc. has released their 2008 study illustrating stable numbers of home sales and consistent home prices.  In 2008, 150 condo and single family homes sold in the area for an average price of $241,516 for condos and $172,551 for single family homes.  147 housing units were added in the time frame.

These numbers illustrate that the downtown is both maintaining value and adding additional housing stock to the market.  This is a positive sign for future residential growth.

One of the strongest areas is the Gateway Quarter in Over-the-Rhine.  Roughly one fifth of the sales last year were in that area, with Duncanson lofts having 12 sales.
