The Warren County Ohio real estate market continues to slow, but that is typical for the time of year. There are fewer homes on the market and fewer homes under contract. However, there are still buyers looking for the perfect match, so waiting until Spring to put your home on the market might not be necessary.

What are the key takeaways?
- The norm for this time of year: fewer homes on the market, longer time to sell, etc.
- What wasn’t the norm? FOUR homes sold for more than $1 million, and the $2.5 million dollar sale is the first over $2 million we’ve seen in quite awhile! Mason’s Long Cove accounted for #1 and #2 on the list of most expensive. The “small” home of the pair was over 7200 sq ft, and the larger home at 11,000 sq ft.
- Prices rose, but thank the proportion of luxury homes selling. 21 homes sold for $500k or more.
- New construction entered in MLS and sold was 37 homes, and those are just the ones reported in Cincinnati MLS. Made to order homes are often not reported. New construction accounts for 194 of the 675 homes listed in MLS and NOT under contract.
- Distressed (short sales and foreclosures) continued to be insignificant this month with 2 foreclosures and 3 short sales in the 275 sold homes. Currently the 675 homes for sale include 10 foreclosed homes and 1 short sale.
