It’s November and the weather is WAY warmer than it usually is in Warren County this time of year. The leaves have popped their colors so it’s another weekend project getting them off the grass as quickly as they’re falling! While normally this time of year the real estate market slows, for us personally it has been a bit “roller coastery” with bursts of heavy activity (two listings under contract, two more buyers under contract) and then some lulls that allow us to catch up on some personal to do items. So our our personal experiences consistent with the real estate market? Let’s take a look at the latest Warren County Ohio homes sales.
