Can you believe July went by so quickly? Back to school sales are starting and before we know it the yellow buses will be everywhere again. We're entering the time of year where there's still plenty of homes to be bought and sold, but the pace will typically start to slow a bit.
What do the stats have to tell us about the Warren County Ohio real estate market?
Stick with us for a quick overview of this month's stats and come back later this month to read our assessments of Mason, Lebanon, Springboro, Maineville/Hamilton Township & Morrow.

What are the key takeaways?
- Prices stayed essentially the same month to month. The key differences? Note the number of homes for sale increased, the number of homes under contract decreased, and the time to sell increased. In other words, the expected seasonal slowdown is starting.
- Time to sell is still fast, with less than 2 weeks from market to contract for half the homes under contract.
36 homes sold in the luxury category ($500,000 or more)
New construction entered in MLS and sold was 24 homes, and those are just the ones reported in Cincinnati MLS. Made to order homes are often not reported. New construction accounts for 200 of the 730 homes listed in MLS and NOT under contract.
- Distressed (short sales and foreclosures) continued to be minimal this month with 3 foreclosures and 2 short sales in the 341 sold homes. Currently the 778 homes for sale include 5 foreclosed homes and 1 short sale.
