Warren County Ohio Real Estate Market Snapshot September 1, 2015
August went by quickly, schools are back in session and the days aren’t quite as hot as they used to be! And the same holds true for the local real estate market! We’re starting the annual slow down in activity. By no means is the market going into hibernation, but it’s SLIGHTLY down. A few less sales, a few less homes for sale. It’s normal for this time of year. Overall, for the most part August activity matched July, just in a little less quantity.
Stay with us for a top line review of last month’s Warren County Ohio residential home market.

What are the key takeaways?
- The market has cooled slightly and the biggest indicator for that is the drop in homes under contract. 473 is still a lot of homes under contract, but it doesn’t match up with July’s 543. That’s still basically 1 of every 3 homes for sale is currently under contract.
- On the other hand, prices and times to sell stayed almost constant.
- Distressed (short sales and foreclosures) continue to be a fairly small segment of Warren County homes for sale. Currently the 1068 homes for sale include 33 foreclosed homes and 15 short sales. Of the 298 homes sold in August, 10 were foreclosures and 5 were short sales.
