Columbus Home Sales Down 7% – 2007

by Maureen McCabe on January 25, 2008

Unit sales were down 7% according to info the Columbus Board of Realtors supplied to the media yesterday. And to us the membership a day later… I’ve always had a hard time with that… hearing it or reading it from the media… yes historically we did not have the channels to transmit the information internally but we do now. I just think the real estate bloggers should get to scoop the media.

According to the President of the Columbus Board of Realtors, Greg Hrabcak, there were less homes sales over a million dollars in 2007. There were also more home sales under 30,000 dollars, investors buying while the buying is good.
