The Warren County Ohio real estate market continues to bloom as we get farther into the Spring season! The color is starting to show as our azaleas hit their full range of colors with white, orange, yellow, pink & red burst into full bloom! Warren County Ohio’s real estate market is showing good signs of life too with more houses on the market and those in the sweet spots going under contract quickly!
Let’s take a quick look and see what the April 2016 stats tell us about the Warren County Ohio residential home market.

What are the key takeaways?
- Homes are selling faster than they’re being replaced as evidenced by the drop in ACTIVE HOMES at the same time as a significant increase in homes UNDER CONTRACT (Pending)? And sales are quick too, with half of all sold homes under contract in less than 3 weeks! It’s good to be a seller if your home is in good condition and priced right!
- New construction is increasing as resales aren’t keeping up with demand.
- Sales in the luxury range continue to be more limited, accounting for only 12 of the 241 completed sales.
- Distressed (short sales and foreclosures) continue to be a fairly small segment of Warren County homes for sale. Currently the 861 homes for sale include 18 foreclosed homes and 18 short sales. Of the 241 homes sold in April, 15 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. Spring is coming soon!
