Happy New Year! 2019 is here and if there was any doubt (there shouldn't have been) that we're in the typical Winter slowdown, this months stats really bear it out. MUCH fewer homes on the market today than a month ago (lots of sellers probably took a break for the holidays or their listing contracts ended New Year's Eve and they're not back on the market YET). The number of homes under contract increased slightly and the number of homes sold dropped slightly. Prices were stable.
What do the stats have to tell us about the Warren County Ohio real estate market?

- Median price was almost the same as the previous month.
- Time to sell increased, and that's typical for the time of year.
- 17 homes sold in the luxury category ($500,000 or more). Only one home sold for more than $1,000,000.
New construction entered in MLS and sold was 22 homes, and those are just the ones reported in Cincinnati MLS. Made to order homes are often not reported. New construction accounts for 191 of the 603 homes listed in MLS and NOT under contract. The number of new homes available increased from previous months.
- Distressed (short sales and foreclosures) continued to be minimal this month with 2 foreclosures and 0 short sales in the 202 sold homes. Currently the 603 homes for sale include 4 foreclosed homes and 1 short sale.
