Columbus / Central Ohio Home Sales – September 2011
Homes sales in Central Ohio were 1,719 for the month and that’s up almost 17% over the 1,474 for September last year. Homes going into contract increased 58% last month over a year ago. Total sales YTD still lags 2010 by 3.7% when the Home Buyer Tax Credit was in effect. Year over year increases over the last three-month fuel hopes that the market will end up with a gain for the year.
Median sales price was also up slightly over last year to $128,000 versus $127,500 for September 2010. Unsold inventory also fell 17.2%. New listings are down 12.6%
Just as with the unemployment numbers for Central Ohio that I posted yesterday, the Columbus metro is recovering nicely.
