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 2010 through present month:

So what can we determine from the latest statistics? 

  • Sales for May were typical, mid 20s has been common the last few years. were normal for the month, results in the 20s are commone.
  • The price range continues to be fairly close from minimum to maximum sold prices.   The net effect of that is average and median prices remain very close together.
  • Very little was given by the sellers during negotiations, with less than 1% deducted from full asking price.  However, that DOES often include some closing cost assistance for buyers. 
  • Homes needed an average of 4 weeks to go under contract, but the median point was just 8 days.
  • Distressed property is totally missing from homes for sale and homes sold.  NONE in May.
  • New construction is still a sizable portion of homes for sale, with 24 new construction homes of the 61 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.

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.
