Year End Sales Stats

According to the lastest figures posted from the CBR (Columbus Board of Realtors), "central Ohio fared far better than Ohio and the nation." Columbus real estate statistics aren't nearly as doom and gloom as the national statistics might have you believe. The average sales price in Central Ohio in 2008 was just under $164K, down only 5% from the 2007 average. It has been predicted that 2009 will actually bring property value increases, which is great news for all of you looking to sell and take advantage of historically low interest rates. Happy house hunting!

The perfect opportunity to finish a house to your specifications!

I came across this property and walked through it today. It will be a great house for someone who has the time, energy & financial ability to finish it! It was started by a builder that is no longer in business, and is about 65% complete. It's in a great location, and has a wonderful, open floorplan. With a little time & imagination, this house would make someone a great home! If you're interested in seeing it, contact me and we'll set up a time! I'm also fairly certain that this home may be sold for much less than the asking price.



Looking for a "deal" in an affluent neighborhood?

If so, make sure you pay attention to the taxes on the property. I've come across so many properties that have a low asking price, but the taxes are still what they were when the property sold for much more, making an affordable home, no longer affordable! You may be able to have the tax rate adjusted after the sale, but don't count on if or when that might happen. Taxes in some areas can add another $1,000 a month or more to your mortgage payment!
