HER Real Living ecardBreaking NEWS Columbus home sales for January 2013…. came out last week.     The Columbus Board of REALTORS (the official voice of real estate in central Ohio, they say so) released the info on January 2013 home sales through the Columbus Board of REALTORS mls (multiple listing service) on February 21, 2013.   The Columbus Board of Realtors released a press release to members (I am one) and the media.

You did not see a post about it here but the Breaking News was added on on February 21, 2013.

The Breaking News is on

The Columbus Board of REALTORS spoke last week and said “homes are selling in central Ohio.”  And the Columbus Board of REALTORS (a trade organization ) also said home prices are up and inventory (homes for sale) are down.  Yes I should have jumped on the story…   Do you see Breaking News on the sidebar of ?

It’s there.  One of the things that little widget on the sidebar tells you is Columbus home prices rise to 2007 price!

Breaking News Columbus Home Sales according to the Columbus Board of REALTORS

“We’ve watched inventory dwindle steadily over the last year as demand continued to grow,” added Pedon. “Homeowners that have been waiting to move up, or tried to sell their home a few years ago, should seriously consider listing their home. It’s a whole new game out there today.”

Pedon is Chris Pedon, the President of the Columbus Board of REALTORS.

Breaking News Columbus home sales are up

+ is up and – is down… that is a minus not a dash.  Yes there are some areas in central Ohio where January 2013 home sales were NOT up from January 2012.

  • Beechwold / Clintonville  + 94.1%
  • Big Walnut – 33.3%
  • Columbus Corp. + 26.5%
  • Columbus schools + 20.6%
  • Dublin schools  – 2.2% (Dublin Corp + 6.1% )
  • Hilliard schools + 118.4% (Hilliard Corp. + 145.5%)
  • Olentangy schools    – 12.2%
  • Powell Corp. – 15.4%
  • Sunbury Corp. – 33.3%
  • Upper Arlington schools + 17.9%
  • Westerville schools + 46.2% (Westerville Corp  + 78.9%)
  • Worthington schools + 35.3%  (Worthington Corp – 33.3%)

Those  stats are from the Columbus Board of REALTORS and those are for residential sales ( single family, condominiums, etc.  places people live.)  Residential sales does not tell you the story of commercial real estate.  This does not show you land listings.

Looking for a central Ohio home?  Search the inventory of homes on my HER Realtors site.

When I look at the market I usually break out single family resale from new homes and condominiums (new and used condos.)

The image at the top is an OLD Real Living HER (or is that an HER Real Living? Big HER circle, small Real Living… I think that was 2002 to 2007 in the evolution of the company that started out as HER Realtors) ecard.  Breaking Columbus real estate news last fall?   The central Ohio brokerage is HER Realtors again.
