Summer is winding down, and that usually means that the real estate market starts to cool off, too. However, 2017 real estate is showing no signs of slowing! Although homes are staying on the market about 4 days longer than they were last month, they are still selling faster and at higher prices than this time last year.
In addition to this crazy market, Columbus, Ohio has popped up on “hot market” lists all summer long. With the national average home price rising to $275k, Columbus continues to be an affordable city to buy. Our average home price is just $161k! Plus, with all the government jobs of a capitol city, and the largest university in the country right here in town, the unemployment rate in Columbus has always been low. All these jobs make it even easier to afford a home here!
So, thinking of relocating to the Columbus area? Check out these new listings–but be quick! The average home is only on the market for 64 days, so they go fast!

I have a serious soft spot for mid-century ranches, so this house definitely caught my eye. This Berwick beauty features tons of original details, including a gorgeous stone fireplace in the entryway, and lots of nice woodwork. However, the kitchen has been completely updated with stainless appliances and granite counters. Plus this house is huge. With five bedrooms and a truly enormous walkout, finished basement, there’s plenty of space for everyone. Click here to see the full listing and to contact Mindy for more information!

The property is like a giant farmhouse right by downtown. It’s so charming! There are tons of original features, like a built in hutch, bookcases, dressers, and cabinets. Along with the beautiful woodwork and fireplace, this house has lots to offer. And don’t forget the attached two car garage!

I love all the updates in this sweet mid-century ranch. Those new hardwood floors are beautiful! The refinished kitchen and baths are also really well done. But there are lots of original details to love, like that corner china cabinet in the eat in kitchen, and the fireplaces in the living room and finished basement.
