Columbus home sales up 40%

by Maureen McCabe on May 26, 2010

Columbus home sales up according to Columbus Board of RealtorsColumbus homes sales up 40% in April 2010 according to the Columbus Board of REALTORS® numbers released on May 21, 2010:
“The 2,093 homes sold last month represented a 22.8 percent increase over the previous month and a 39.1 percent increase over April of 2009.”

The “Columbus” here means Central Ohio of course.  The title of the CBR News is  “April saw 40 percent increase in home sales in central Ohio” The area is way bigger area than the City of Columbus.  According to the CBR release  “The Columbus Board of REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service (MLS) serves all of Franklin, Delaware, Fayette, Madison, Morrow, Pickaway and Union Counties and parts of Champagne, Clark, Hocking, Licking, Fairfield, Knox, Logan, Marion, and Ross Counties. “

How does Columbus homes sales up 40%  compare to what I reported on May 07 2010 01:51PM with the headline   Columbus home sales up 26%*

When I use TrendGraphix to create market reports generally I use only single family homes*, the board is reporting residential properties.  I also wonder if the two or so weeks between TrendGraphix reporting numbers back to subsribers and the official announcement from the Columbus Board of REALTORS® if numbers are reconciled based on sales that are not reported “QUICKLY”

No matter how you look at it home sales are up because of the tax credits.  Buyers needed to be in contract by April 30, 2010 to qualify.

The Columbus Board of REALTORS says:

To view residential properties for sale, visit with a link…

I have to disagree with the CBR on:  To view residential properties for sale, visit

Use a local site, mine.   Real Living HER’s, another local brokerage….  To view residential properties for sale visit: you can search for homes on the Real Living HER site but will be offered the opportunity to receive listings directly from the Columbus Board of REALTORS® MLS (multiple listing service.)  Real estate is local… why go to a national site to search for Columbus homes….
