Central Ohio Real Estate Update: December 2016

Central Ohio Market Update: December 2016

Columbus saw, yet again, record number of home sales during November, with over 2,200 homes and condos sold, a 15.8% increase over the previous year. Year to date home sales are approaching 30,000, which is more than 7% over last year!According to Columbus REALTORS® President John Royer, “This is proving to be one of the best years ever for the central Ohio real estate market. We continue to have record numbers of home sales each month and the demand for homes continues to be exceedingly strong.” That said, many experts believe prices will begin to taper off in 2017 as the Federal Reserve has announced a plan to slowly increase interest rates. Though rates moved up 0.25% last week, there is much debate among economists as to the size of future rate increases. The general consensus is rates will move up another 0.5% over the course of 2017, but not much more. Regardless, it will be exciting to see what happens after the new year!

Community News: Fight to Win Fundraiser for #JJStrong

Our Fight to Win events come from my belief that, with success, comes responsibility. I believe that money is good because of the good it can do. Personally, my greatest passion is helping to find a cure for childhood cancer. Therefore every year we fund an event to help a local child with cancer.

This year’s event is benefiting JJ Thomas, a 13-year old student at Dublin Grizzell Middle School who was diagnosed with Leukemia last month. The fundraiser will be held on January 21st at Dublin AMC Theater, where we will show Sing, a new animated family film starring Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon. Complimentary popcorn and drinks will also be provided by our sponsors, Search 2 Close, Rick Zipf Home Inspections, and Concord Mortgage.
