A transaction begins when a property is made available for sale and ends when a title is conveyed from one party to another party as a result of the recording of a deed with the local government.

As part of the process, a property typically goes under contract and into a due diligence phase by which a deal can be canceled.

The new condo sales report is based on completed transactions where a deed is recorded and taxes paid as a result of the sale.
