Anyone involved in Columbus, Ohio real estate knows the past few months have been a red-hot seller’s market. According to the Columbus Board of Realtors, lack of inventory has incentivized buyers to act quickly when homes appear on the market. As the Columbus Dispatch has reported, bidding wars and escalation clauses have become the rule in high-demand neighborhoods such as Upper Arlington, Clintonville, Grandview Heights and Worthington.
So it’s no surprise that Realtor.com ranked Columbus as the nation’s 15th hottest real estate market for July 2015. The website looked at the 20 busiest real estate markets in the country and ranked them by buyer demand (as shown by listing views) and quick sales (as shown by days on market).
The average home in Columbus stays on the market for only 51 days. And, with a median list price of $174,000, Columbus remains among the most affordable major housing markets in the country.
