The Columbus Board of REALTORS® has again confirmed what I’ve been experiencing this year – the Central Ohio real estate market is very strong. Yesterday, they released the August 2013 report, stating that record sales are in the books for this year.
According to the data they have collected so far this year:
- As of August 31, 18,834 homes have sold (22.9% more than January 1- August 31, 2012 – exceed any previous year)
- The number of homes sold in August alone (2,729) were 11.1% higher than August 2012, and the highest number sold in August
Chris Pedon, President of the Columbus Board of REALTORS® is quoted in the article:
“Although we’ve seen positive gains all year, home sales over the summer were off the charts. There was only one summer – back in 2005 at the height of the housing boom – when we came close to seeing the volume of homes sold this year.”
