Spring is here and we're even getting hints of summer with the much warmer temperatures!  The lawnmowers are active, the nurseries are packed on the weekends with fresh flowers, shrubs and tons of mulch being sold!  And while we're seeing most of Warren County's real estate activity a bit lower in April than it was in March, Springboro is bucking the trend with increasing home sales!

555 Heatherwoode Circle

Stay with us for the full Springboro report and our advice for potential Springboro home sellers and buyers.  And if you want to search Springboro homes for sale, we've got search for Springboro homes for sale links at the bottom of the report.    Want to know How Much Is My Springboro Home Worth?  Just click the link, fill out the form and we'll get back to you shortly!

This report covers the Springboro Community School district single family homes (so portions of surrounding townships will be included e.g. Clearcreek & Turtlecreek).  This report will only cover single family homes and not include condominium data.  Data is derived from the Dayton MLS only, so homes sold without Dayton MLS entry will NOT be included in this review.

The Springboro area is popular, especially with residents seeking to commute into Dayton (easy access with I75 and SR741), and even works well for those not minding a bit longer commute south to the Cincinnati area.  Springboro is a good choice for couples where one works in Dayton and the other in Cincinnati.

Springboro Community Schools are among the state's best public schools per the Ohio Department of Education ratings.  Additionally Springboro was selected #42 in U.S. in 2011 by Money magazine for Best Small Cities To Live and probably would have made the 2013 list, but Money magazine changed the rules to only one town per county and Mason got the nod. 

Keep in mind that some homes may only be listed in the Cincinnati MLS and will not be included in this report.  We STRONGLY recommend any Springboro resident selling their home hire a REALTOR(R) with access to BOTH Cincinnati and Dayton MLS.

The Springboro area offers a full range of price points, and features an older historic area, developments of older homes, new subdivisions and rural options.  There are also golf course communities, luxury home communities, patio home communities .... basically there's something for every home buyer's taste and budget.

So what does this all mean?   There are some key takeaways:

  • Another strong month for total sales, with another increasing month.  At first take you might think the pricing info is bad with the drops, but that's mostly a reflection of demand for a certain price point.  Of the 49 homes sold, only 1 was below $100,000 and only 8 sold above $300k (of those 8, only 2 above $500k).  So while it was a bad month for luxury sales, it was a great month for homes in the $100 to $300k range.  That tightness in price band meant the drops in average and median prices.
  • Pending numbers increased again and indicate another good month will follow April for total homes sold.
  • Time to sell a home dropped to just over 3 months on average.  However, it's still not uncommon for the best homes to sell VERY quickly.
  • Distressed properties continue to be scarce, representing one of the 49 sold and only 4 of the 197 for sale.  If you insist on buying a foreclosure or short sale, you're going to have VERY little to choose from.
  • Don't expect huge discounts from asking price.  97.2% sold to list price is a strong indication you can negotiate a little.
  • 197 homes for sale continues to demonstrate low inventory levels. 

Bottom line:  Springboro CONTINUES to be one of your best choices for buying a home in the Cincinnati/Dayton corridor but act fast for the best of the best homes.

 

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

Buyers are out there and Springboro is still high demand, with great market stability and distressed properties having almost no impact.  Basically the edge is to the sellers in Springboro.  Price right, market right and your sale will come, you just need to be patient and of course hire the right real estate team to take care of those details (give us a call at 513-520-5305). 

If you're a luxury home seller keep in mind you're competing against custom home new construction in communities like Country Brook and Silver Lake.  Combine that with fewer buyers able to afford luxury homes and you realize the market slice is MUCH smaller for you. 

For an evaluation of your home's marketability, please contact us at 513-520-5305.  And of course your personal circumstances will have impact of the right decision.  We'll give you our best advice, whether to start now, or wait.

 

So what does this mean to you as a potential Springboro home buyer? 

STILL NO REASON TO CHANGE PAST ADVICE FOR BUYERS:  

Springboro is a competitive market for the best homes and almost no foreclosures for sale.  That's a good thing because it helps overall price stabilty for homes.

Like a Springboro home for sale?  Be prepared to pay for the great condition homes in the best developments.   And if it's an in demand neighborhood at an affordable price you'd best act FAST or expect to lose your chance of buying that home to a buyer who was quicker to make a decision.

Springboro offers a lot of prime factors to make it home:  great schools, great location, great community.  There are quite a few newer homes for sale in communities such as Settlers Walk, and some older subdivisions provide the lower end of the shopping price point. New construction is also available in some communities.
