Buy Now!… HOUSES!

by Maureen McCabe on October 16, 2007

Columbus is a stable housing market. One of the best in the country. Says who? Says Forbes.com and Moody’s Economy.com!

From the Columbus Board of Realtors:

“Last year was the third highest number of sales ever in Central Ohio. Yes, it was down 4.5% from 2005 and the average sale price is down a `whopping’ 1%, but it was still a good year. Today, compared to 2004, only 3 years ago, we have sold close to the same number of houses and the average sales price is up nearly 3%. “

Ad … hey if it was Forbes.com there’d be pop ups and Steve Forbes would come walking across the screen occasionally to sell you something…
