Worthington among Top Real Estate Markets in U.S.

Worthington High School

Quick, what’s the hottest suburb in Central Ohio? If you guessed humble Worthington, with a population of just about 15,000 people, you’d be correct! Worthington was recently named the third-hottest ZIP code for real estate in the nation by Realtor.com, which analyzed home demand and the pace of sales in over 29,000 markets.

Niche.com calls Worthington “one of the best places to live in Ohio” for its quality schools, ample green space and other amenities. But the best testimonial for Worthington may be in the fact that very few people move out! According to a 2020 study by SmartAsset, Worthington homeowners stay put for an average of 24.8 years. The national average for home retention is 13 years.

Even during the Great Recession, Worthington had a relatively low ratio of distressed properties, which helped it earn the title of “Most Stable Housing Market in Ohio” by SmartAsset.

Located just about 10 miles from Columbus, Worthington is close to major employment centers, Ohio State University and all the event and entertainment districts of the big city. At the same time, Worthington maintains an inviting, small-town appeal with quaint residential streets and charming shops.

Home prices have been rising in Worthington, with the average sale price reaching $398,408 during July 2022. During the same month, there were only 47 homes for sale according to the Columbus Regional Multiple Listing Service. (This does not include homes for sale that did not transact through the MLS.)

We know quite a bit about Worthington, because we have an office in town, located at 7100 North High Street, Suite 204!

Our unique expertise in the local communities is one of the many advantages you’ll enjoy as our Buyer-Client!
