Columbus Area Housing Market Among Healthiest in U.S.

columbus housing market andrew showColumbus real estate has bubbled up on another media list! A report by SmartAsset, a financial technology company, named the Columbus area real estate market as one of the healthiest in the country, placing it #86 nationally and #2 in Ohio.

What exactly is a “healthy” real estate market? In the case of the SmartAsset analysis, a healthy real estate market has these four elements: sales price stability, low risk of future depreciation in values, ease of home sales and home affordability.

According to the study, Columbus Metro homes spend an average of 36.9 days on market. Home prices have been climbing on a year-over-year basis, but not at an unsustainable pace. Only about 9% of homes on the market have seen declining values, and 11.7% have negative equity. Meanwhile, the costs of owning a Columbus home are within reach of median incomes.

Statistically, the market is healthy for home sellers. But for Columbus home buyers, the market can be a challenge to break into! A lack of entry-level home inventory has made first-time home ownership a more expensive endeavor in recent years. There are still opportunities in the market, but the fast pace of home sales can be daunting for unprepared buyers.
