What's My Morrow Ohio Home Worth? January 2018

This is a month to NOT get wrapped around the axle by Morrow Ohio's home sales numbers.  It was a VERY slow month for completed sales so don't put much value in the $$$ related numbers.  Inventory is still tight and new construction is an important part of the Morrow housing market.  Stick with us for more 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.

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 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: 7 (0 Bank/Government Owned, 0 Short Sale, 3 New Construction) DOWN 8

Average Price Sold:  $202,779 DOWN $22.5k

Median Price Sold:  $184,000 DOWN $34k

Average Days on Market for SOLD homes: 33 DOWN 6 (median 6)

Homes Active 2/17/18:  41 DOWN 1

Homes Pending 2/17/18: 45 UP 11

Average Sales/List %:  99.1% UP 1.9%

Most Expensive Home Sold:  $273,500

Least Expensive Home Sold:  $165,000

 

So what can we determine from the latest statistics? 

  • The sales numbers were VERY low, even for a January, so take any stats regarding price or time to sell with a large, large grain of salt. 
  • Only 7 completed sales is slow even for a January.  The good sing?  The spike in homes under contract.  45 means February is bound to be better than January's completed sales tally.
  • Don't pay much (if any) attention to average and median prices and shifts.  Just not enough data to rely on and form proper conclusions.
  • The few homes that sold MOSTLY sold in under a week.
  • Talk about a tight band of sold prices! Just a little over 100k from lowest to highest. 
  • Based on the number of pending homes, expect February completed sales to be much better than January totals.
  • Distressed property is almost nonexistent this month, accounting for none of the homes sold and one of the homes not under contract.
  • New construction is still a sizable portion of homes for sale, with 14 new construction homes of the 41 for sale.

 

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

STILL NO 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 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.
