We’re now in the second half of 2016! Did the Warren County real estate market close out the first half strong?
June’s performance was very similar to May as far as prices, but completed sales increased significantly!
Let’s take a quick look and see what the June 2016 stats tell us about the Warren County Ohio residential home market.
Warren County Residential Sales Summary (single family homes & condos):
Number of Homes For Sale 7/1/16: 955 (UP 43 from 902 6/1/16)
Number of Homes Under Contract (Pending) 7/1/16: 626 (DOWN 49 from 675 6/1/16)

Average Cumulative Days on Market for SOLD homes: 59 vs 62 in May

What are the key takeaways?
- Finally more homes on the market so a bit better selection for buyers. However, the best communities are still very limited. With about 40% of all homes for sale under contract, we don’t see the selection getting significantly bigger.
- Homes are STILL selling FAST! 15 days continued to be the number that half of all SOLD homes were under contract.
- Distressed (short sales and foreclosures) continue to be a fairly small segment of Warren County homes for sale. Currently the 955 homes for sale include 21 foreclosed homes and 10 short sales. Of the 368 homes sold in June, 10 were foreclosures and 1 was a short sale.
- Bottom line, if you need to sell a home, there’s a lack of homes for sale and there’s still enough activity to support getting our marketing to work for you. If you’re thinking about buying, inventory is tight. We’re in peak season right now!
