Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations: August 2019

What's My Morrow Ohio Home Worth? July 2019

Morrow Ohio home sales in July were good, matching the total sales high for July and the median price topped recent Julys.  But two stats point to the usual slowdown:  the number of homes available increased and the number of homes under contract decreased.  Inventory is building and that's typical as the market slows each Fall.  


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. 

Wedgwood of Morrow OhioWedgwood, a typical Morrow area subdivision (although the new construction is finished there!)

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 2013 through present month:

Next is the Morrow median price summary chart.

Morrow 45152 Single Family Home Summary:

Homes Sold: 26 (0 Bank/Government Owned, 0 Short Sale, 1 New Construction) UP  3

Average Price Sold:  $270,540 UP $14k

Median Price Sold:  $249,191 UP $6k

Average Days on Market for SOLD homes: 27 DOWN 19 (median 13)

Average Sales/List %:  98.7% UP 0.1%

Most Expensive Home Sold:  $819,447

Least Expensive Home Sold:  $101,250

 

So what can we determine from the latest statistics? 

  • Sales increased from June to July and that's not unusual for the peak months of Summer.  .
  • Prices increased and for the most part home sales are tightly bunched in the $100-300,000 range.  Of the 26 sales, 8 were above $300k and only 2 were above $500,000. 
  • The pending number is down, so don't be surprised if August numbers don't match July.
  • The number of homes for sale increased again and 32 of that 81 are new construction homes.
  • Time to sell average dropped to under 4 weeks and median time to sell is still under 2 weeks. 
  • Distressed property accounted for none of the 26 sold and 2 of the 81 for sale.

 

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

We're still during the peak time of year, but slowing down as is the norm for the time of year.  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 OUR BUYER ADVICE: 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.
