Buyer’s Home: Your Exclusive Columbus Buyers Agency

Columbus popular with Millennials and Gen X home buyersColumbus has made many “Top” lists over the years, including being named as the #1 “Remote Ready” City , the “Hottest Hipster Market” and one of the “Best Cities for College Graduates.” The latest distinction comes from a new study by Lending Tree, which names Columbus as one of the most popular cities for Millennial and Generation-X home buyers.

In the study, Lending Tree analyzed demographic and housing data for the 50 largest metro areas in the U.S., comparing average resident ages and median housing costs. The “youngest” city in the U.S. by Lending Tree’s analysis is Austin, Texas, with an average homeowner age of 47, average renter age of 31, and median mortgage payment of $1,909.00.

In Columbus, the average homeowner age is about 49 years old, and our average renter is about 31 years old. Columbus median mortgage costs are $1,501 a month, which is the second-cheapest of all the top 10 cities. However, our homeowners are slightly older compared to other cities on the list, which put Columbus in 8th place.

Other cities in the top 10 included St. Louis, Houston, Dallas, Denver, San Jose, Raleigh, Atlanta and Nashville. With the exception of Nashville, all other cities had median mortgage payments higher than Columbus. The most expensive city on the “popular” list was San Jose, with a median mortgage payment of $2,236.

While Columbus Metro home prices have been rising for years, home buyers still fare better here than many other large cities. Whether you are looking for rewarding employment, major entertainment venues, outdoor recreation or a college town atmosphere, Columbus has it all!

Columbus Metro Home DemandHome demand in Central Ohio is expected to remain strong for decades to come, according to a recent article in Columbus Business First. Simply put, Central Ohio’s population growth is driving the market. This latest analysis is fresh from 2020 U.S. Census Data, which shows a 15% gain in Columbus population over the past 10 years.

Notably, Columbus is one of just 14 cities in the U.S. to add 100,000 residents over a 10-year period. Columbus is the only city in the Midwest to reach this milestone!

What brings new residents to Columbus in such numbers? One explanation is the presence of Ohio State University. For 2021, the total student enrollment for both undergraduate and graduate students is estimated at 61,391. While not all OSU students remain in Columbus after graduation, our employment opportunities make it an attractive option. In turn, our young, well-educated workforce continues to draw employers to the area.

With all trends considered, the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission estimates that the Columbus area will add 1 million new residents by 2050. This would increase our current population by 50%. Given the modest pace of new home construction, it is reasonable to assume that limited home supply will be a long-running issue for home buyers.
