Home Sales Show Brisk Pace in Columbus Metro

Metro Columbus home sale paceHome buyer enthusiasm didn’t fade with the change of seasons, according to September sales data from Columbus REALTORS®. Favorable mortgage interest rates, along with positive economic conditions, have kept buyers motivated. Here’s a look at the numbers!

On a year-over-year basis, the volume of Central Ohio home sales increased by 8.9% during September. Conversely, home inventory was down on a year-over-year basis, with 5.6% fewer homes on the market. The imbalance of supply and demand continues to result in rising home prices and shorter days-on-market.

While lower-priced homes typically spend the least amount of time on the market, expensive homes are selling briskly as well. In Central Ohio, we have well-qualified buyers in virtually all price ranges. Here’s how the days-on-market break down by price range, based on September 2019 statistics:

  • Homes priced $350,000 and less: average of 26 days on market
  • Homes priced from $350,000 to $500,000: average of 42 days on market
  • Homes priced from $500,000 to $700,000: average of 59 days on market
  • Homes priced $700,000 and up: average of 86 days on market

We discussed the competitive conditions for Columbus home buyers in our prior blog post. But as we can see by the modest days on market for higher-priced homes, buyer demand extends beyond entry-level inventory.
