Schindler’s List Price: Depends on Where in Columbus

by Maureen McCabe on December 10, 2012

Welcome to Clintonville sign at Worthington city lineThat’s not Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler” in the title here.  Or even the real Oskar Schindler, a historical figure from World War II.   The Schindler in the title here,  ‘ Schindler’s List: Price Depends on Where in Columbus’  is someone who commented on a Columbus Business First article about home prices and said price  “depends on “where” in Columbus.”

In Schindler’s comment on a Columbus Business First article, his concern was in part that “so much depends on “where” in Columbus.

Maybe Schindler’s  “so much”  was not price… but the Columbus Business First article was about price.  About a list of communities and what the list price would be for a four bedroom, 2 bath home.  Here’s a list of the “lists price” for central Ohio communities that the Columbus Business First article focused on:

Upper Arlington – $404,363
Bexley – $403,790
Dublin – $308,593
Powell – $305,875
Galena – $280,000

New Albany, Ohio did not make the 2012 Coldwell Banker home price list…  The highest priced homes in central Ohio was the focus of the Columbus Business First Article.

“Where in Columbus?”

Columbus?  The Columbus Business First article says “Homes matching the criteria in Columbus cost an average of $177,599, according to Coldwell Banker.”

I’d buy that is the average list price in Columbus.  Is it?  No.  Is that the average list price of a four bedroom home in Columbus? No.   You have to read a lot to know what those prices are on the Coldwell Banker list of list prices.

Schindler’s comment was on an article titled ‘Upper Arlington, Bexley, Dublin ranked as Ohio’s most expensive housing markets’ written by Brian R. Ball.  Ball’s article is based on a  Coldwell Banker home price comparison list about asking prices.  Schindler’s comment went on  “Also, when most of the city is a slum you would expect low prices. Average or median prices in Columbus are useless numbers because so much depends on “where” in Columbus.”

Schindler said “when most of the city is a slum”  in his comment on Columbus Business First article.  Ouch.

Price depends on where

Upper Arlington is the most expensive list price homes in central Ohio on the Coldwell Banker list of list prices.  The order of cities on the Coldwell Banker  list is  from, most affordable to most expensive.   Price depends on “where” in Upper Arlington too.  The Coldwell Banker list says the average list price is $404,363.  Not all homes in Upper Arlington are valued or even listed at $404,363 are they?  Not even all four bedroom, 2 bath homes in Upper Arlington are listed at $404,363.  Price depends on where in Upper Arlington.  Doesn’t it?  Dublin the $308,593 list price  represents that central Ohio suburbs market on the Coldwell Banker Home Listing Report but price depends on where in Dublin too.

You get my point.  Don’t make me say “depends on where in ____” for each and every central Ohio community on the Coldwell Banker Home Listing Report.

There are 2500 +/- places (cities)  on the Coldwell Banker list.  It depends on where in each of those communities, doesn’t it?  Columbus is like hundreds of cities on the Coldwell Banker list of cities, a large city with a broad range of  prices.

I’d kill for a photo of a German Village sign for this post, but I doubt I have one.  I don’t know Schindler.  I commented on the Columbus Business First article too, my comment is something like “What about New Albany?”   New Albany is missing.  The New Albany community in NE Franklin County (and Licking County too…) did not make the 2012 Coldwell Banker list of list prices.
