Columbus Home Buyers Put Sizzle in Summer Real Estate Market

Columbus real estate market newsDetermined buyers snapped up homes during June, keeping the sizzle in Columbus metro real estate. Homes sold in a searing-hot average of just 11 days, according June 2021 data from Columbus REALTORS®. This is 3 days faster than the smoking May sales pace, and 59.3% faster than a year ago.

There is no relief from the heat for Columbus home buyers. During June, listings sold for an average of 103.9% of list price. The average sales price for a Columbus Metro home reached $316,207, an increase of 15.8% from June 2020.

Homes priced $500,000 and under sold in an average of 10 days. Homes priced at $700,000 and above sold in an average of 40 days. The latter range shows a slowdown from May, when homes priced at $700,000 and above sold in about 27 days.

Meanwhile, listings of Columbus Metro homes for sale increased 22.7% compared to a year ago. Yet the aggressive pace of purchase offers consumed new listings quickly.

Nothing short of new inventory – and lots of it – will cool down this market. In the meantime, Columbus home prices remain relatively cheap compared to other major metros. Buyers continue to be drawn to Columbus for the economic opportunities and the housing value.
