What's My Morrow Ohio Home Worth? October 2018

Take the numbers for October for Morrow Ohio home sales with a big grain of salt.  With completed sales down to 13 homes in October, it is VERY easy to have significant fluctuations in sales prices.  We're in the typical slower part of the year.   Stick with us for further details.

We're including some easy to use Search Morrow Homes For Sale links at the end!

This report is specific to zip code 45152 (includes homes in portions of Union Township, Salem Township, Hamilton Township, Harlan Township and Washington Township in addition to Morrow).  45152 is covered primarily by Little Miami Schools but also has Lebanon and Kings school district present.

All data is derived from the Cincinnati MLS system.  If any Morrow area homes traded hands without a REALTOR® involved, then those sales  won't be reflected in this report.

With regards to housing choices in 45152, there are quite a few developments, with the majority focused at the $200k price point with many starter type homes available well below that.  There are also several smaller communities with a focus on upper end properties with larger lots.  Additionally, there are some patio home communities also available.  And of course if your preference is rural living with more acreage, there's plenty of opportunity for that too! 

So, on to the review!
 
First up is the number of Morrow area single family homes sold on a month by month basis for 2010 through present month:

Next is the Morrow median price summary chart.
Morrow Single Family Home Market Report

 

Morrow 45152 Single Family Home Summary:

Homes Sold: 13 (1 Bank/Government Owned, 0 Short Sale, 0 New Construction) DOWN 2

Average Price Sold:  $304,675 UP $21k

Median Price Sold:  $276,000 UP $64k

Average Days on Market for SOLD homes: 26 UP 5 (median 7)

Homes Active 11/21/18: 73 UP 7

Homes Pending 11/21/18: 30 DOWN 1

Average Sales/List %:  99.1% UP .6%

Most Expensive Home Sold:  $630,000

Least Expensive Home Sold:  $85,500

 

So what can we determine from the latest statistics? 

  • We're in the continued slowdown, with only 13 homes sold.  The mix in price ranges leaned to the high side this month, thus the HUGE swing upwards in average price.  6 of the 13 homes sold passed the $300,000 price point, and 3 were over $400,000.  The number of homes for sale decreased, and a third of the 66 for sale are new construction. 
  • Time to sell increased, also typical as fewer buyers are out looking.  
  • The number of homes under contract decreased, but only by 1, so expect November sales to be close to or better than October's sold quantity.
  • Distressed property accounted for 1 of the 13 sold and 3 of the 73 for sale.

 

So what does this mean to you as a Morrow single family home owner?

STILL NO REASON TO CHANGE FROM LAST MONTH:  Low inventory levels work to your advantage, just as long as you take into account the new construction competition.  If you live in a community still actively building, that's a key consideration when pricing your home. 

Overall, demand varies based on subdivision or rural location, home features, new construction competition, etc. 

Buyer demand is obviously there based on the number of homes under contract.  However, it does typically take longer to sell than other communities with an easier commute to Cincinnati.

For an evaluation of your specific home's marketability, please contact us.  

 

So what does this mean to you as a potential Morrow home buyer? 

NO REASON TO CHANGE HERE EITHER: Competition for the best homes is there, but it's not as severe as other places in Warren County.  The best homes CAN sell quickly.  Inventory is VERY low. If Morrow's location fits your needs, there is good value in Morrow homes.  The commute is actually faster than most people expect, and there's both resale and new construction to choose from for your purchase.  You've got your pick of VERY affordable housing. 

Inventory levels are NOT as high as other areas of Warren County, so depending on your housing needs, there may not be a good match on the market.   You can use these Search Morrow Homes For Sale links to get an idea of what is currently offered.  Interested in new construction?  We can help with that too, so just call 513-520-5305.

Search Morrow Ohio 45152 Homes For Sale $400,000 and Up 

However, one key piece of advice that applies in Morrow and elsewhere:  If you see something you like, don't wait on it assuming there will be a price reduction.  Get your offer written, submitted and negotiated to final signatures as rapidly as possible.
