Columbus Homes for Sale Down: April 2012 It’s Official

by Maureen McCabe on May 22, 2012

It’s official. The Columbus Board of REALTOR® said so today. April Columbus home sales were up. Inventory is down… Columbus homes for sale is down. Columbus home prices are going up… home prices are definitely going to go up.

The graph shows months of inventory based on recent sales.  Inventory is down from a year ago.

Down is good…  well unless you are trying to find a home and they are selling too quickly.  Or prices are creeping up and you are a home buyer…

It’s better news for central Ohio home sellers than home buyers.

You will see the Columbus Dispatch, Business First Columbus and other media quote the Columbus Board of REALTORS® today. The news release sent to agents and the media from the Columbus Board of REALTORS ® said in part:

“The number of residential homes for sale continues to decline – which is what the market needs,” said Jim Coridan, 2012 President of the Columbus Board of REALTORS®. “The inflated inventory we experienced  after the housing boom of the mid 2000’s caused home prices to decrease. But 2011 saw a real stabilization of those inventory levels. As a result, home saleprices are rising.”

Single Family Resale

On my real estate sites (links on the right hand side of the page, here on ColumbusBestBlog.com ) there are links to the market reports on my Columbus real estate site, my Worthington real estate site and my S. Delaware real estate site.  Looking for the news closer to home?

The graph above is for the whole Columbus Board of REALTORS mls.

“Homes for Sale Columbus MLS – April 2012 published on Discover Columbus Ohio (Columbus Ohio real estate), “Homes for sale Columbus mls brought to you by Maureen McCabe of Real Living HER” …. the aqua graph is for single family resale properties in the Columbus Board of REALTORS®  mls.    The Columbus Board of REALTORS  mls is a huge area.

Way more than I worry about.   I work in northern Franklin County and southern Delaware County.

The graph at the top (shrunk down and labeled to the left) shows inventory of Columbus single family resale properties is down to 6.1 from 6.2 months in March 2012?  Big whoop?   Look at last year.  The number of Columbus homes for sale is down.  The graph shows 15 months of inventory.

Watch for a market reports about homes for sale in  Buckeye Valley and Big Walnut too.

Columbus Homes for Sale Down: April 2012 It’s Official because the  Columbus Board of REALTORS®  said so…  my numbers on the real estate sites will never match, the numbers on the CBR site.  The reports on the Columbus Board of REALTORS site by area lump all residential sales together.  I am only doing single family resale market reports… unless I am doing condominiums.  The graph shows months of inventory based on recent sales.
