Central Ohio First Quarter Home Sales Are Up!

Central Ohio First Quarter Home Sales Are Up!

Home sales in Central Ohio were up the first quarter of 2012 according to the Central Ohio Housing Report posted by the Columbus Board of REALTORS. According to the report posted on April 18, 2012 “first quarter home sales in Central Ohio were up 7.1 percent versus first quarter 2011 sales.” March home sales jumped more than 30 percent compared to February’s home sales in Central Ohio, and the upward trend seems to be continuing.


Not only have home sales risen, but the median list price is also up compared to one year ago at this time.  Trends are continuing to favor more home sales, but at a more cautious pace than they were previously.


President of the Columbus Board of REALTORS Jim Coridan seems optimistic about the Central Ohio housing trends:  “Sales, contracts and home prices are all up this year,” said Coridan. “This coupled with the temperate inventory levels makes for a much stronger Central Ohio housing market than we had a few years ago.”
