What's My Morrow Ohio Home Worth? January 2019

January was fairly typical for this time of year in Morrow.  Fewer homes completed sale and the number under contract dropped slightly.  But again, slow is what we expect until the weather starts to warm.  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. 

For a free home valuation, home owners please click What Is My Morrow Ohio Home Value? and fill out the form.

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:
Morrow Ohio 45152 Residential Home Market Report
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, 4 New Construction) DOWN 4

Average Price Sold:  $275,842 UP $45.5k

Median Price Sold:  $280,000 UP $85k

Average Days on Market for SOLD homes: 79 DOWN 33 (median 41)

Homes Active 2/16/19: 58 DOWN 3

Homes Pending 2/16/19: 17 DOWN 2

Average Sales/List %:  99.1% UP 1.2%

Most Expensive Home Sold:  $511,657

Least Expensive Home Sold:  $65,001

 

So what can we determine from the latest statistics? 

  • The sold total was typical for January.  By far not the lowest, but not the highest either. 
  • The pending number dropped slightly, but we'd expect next month's report to show a typical quantity for homes sold.    
  • Home values didn't actually radically change.  The previous report there was a DOWN amount of almost the same dollar value.  Keep in mind with lower sales numbers it is MUCH easier to move the price statistics.    2 homes sold for less than $100,000 and 6 sold for more than $300,000.
  • New construction accounts for over half the homes not under contract (33 of the 58).     
  • Time to sell returned to something closer to normal for the time of year, with half the homes under contract in less than 6 weeks. 
  • Distressed property accounted for 1 of the 13 sold and none of the 58 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.
