Columbus home prices falling? II

by Maureen McCabe on July 8, 2010

June 2010 - Columbus home prices falling? -0.4% from May 2010…  the Columbus Dispatch reported in late June that prices were falling.  The June 27 article said: “With dropping home prices, record-low mortgage rates and special offers, buyers who missed out on the $8,000 federal tax credit are coming out further ahead.” Link below.  Of course if Weiker was interviewing buyers who were putting homes in contract in June at phenomenal savings that will show in July or August closings.

This graph shows home prices for the Columbus Board of REALTORS® MLS (multiple listing service)  area for the past 15 months.  The green line is the average active price.  The red line is average sale price.  Average sold price in June 2010 was up 7% from May 2010.

  • Average active (list ) price was down 9.3% in comparison to June 2009.
  • Average sale price in June 2010 was up 5.2% in comparison to June 2009.

Homes that closed (sold)  in June 2010 would have gone “in contract” in April or May typically.

Columbus home prices falling? - Columbus Dispatch “with dropping home prices”

In a June 27 Columbus Dispatch Article ‘Sometimes, it pays to delay‘ Jim Weiker wrote: “With dropping home prices, record-low mortgage rates and special offers, buyers who missed out on the $8,000 federal tax credit are coming out further ahead.” Perhaps that will show up in next months market reports. Or in particular neighborhoods, ZIP codes.  I know there was an anecdote about home prices dropping in Clintonville in the Columbus Dispatch article.

The Columbus Board of REALTORS MLS (multiple listing)  area includes all of Franklin, Delaware, Fayette, Madison, Morrow and Union Counties and parts of Champagne, Clark, Hocking, Licking, Fairfield, Knox, Logan, Marion, Pickaway and Ross Counties.

Stay tuned I might share some market stats for your area in the next few weeks.

Published July 2010 based on data available from the Columbus Board of REALTORS® at the end of June  2010.   TrendGraphix reports presented are based on data supplied by the Columbus Board of Realtors.  According to Trendgraphix neither  CBR nor their MLS (multiple listing service ) guarantee or are in anyway responsible for it’s accuracy. “Information deemed reliable but not guaranteed.”   No guarantee from me either!

Always interesting to see breakdowns of other markets. Here in the Hilton Head real estate market we do have some segments that continue to trend down (lots lead the pack) however our most violent price declines in the single family and condo/villa markets seem to be over. Do you attrribute a rising closing avg. price with a decline in inventory?
