  • New listings on the market in February are nearly 6 percent higher than homes put on the market last February, and the inventory of homes for sale in central Ohio remains at its lowest point since the summer of 2002.
  • The median sales price has increased as well, up 1.7 percent this year compared to last year.

Chris Pedon, President of the Columbus Board of REALTORS® was quoted in the article as saying:

“We haven’t seen sales increases like this since housing peaked in ’06-’07. We are looking at a new housing market, one that’s smart and affordable, but also competitive.”
