Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations: Ohio: Morrow

What's My Morrow Ohio Home Worth? March 2018

The Spring market is getting started for Morrow Ohio!  Sales numbers were solid.  Morrow is a smaller market within Warren County, so it's easy for a little volatility to impact market stats.  Like many areas in our market, new construction is a big portion of homes for sale.  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. 

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 2010 through present month:

So what can we determine from the latest statistics? 

  • Overall March was a good month for Morrow home sales.  While not the highest March since 2010, 2nd place isn't bad!  And prices dropped a bit, but that's easy to do on lower sales volume. 
  • 59 homes under contract points to April at least matching March.
  • Homes needed an average of 2 months to go under contract.
  • Prices continued to be in a tight band, with two below $100,00 and only 1 above $300,000. 
  • Distressed property is still low, with only one sold and none on the market and not under contract. 
  • New construction is still a sizable portion of homes for sale, with 13 new construction homes of the 45 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.
