Westerville OH Real Estate Report Summary

What do all these numbers mean for you? If you’re selling a home, it is good that Westerville is considered a Seller’s Market through the 3rd quarter, but keep in mind that this is the time of year for the market to seasonally shift into a fall/winter slow down. To sell your home in the fall/winter you definitely need to work with a local professional to help you get it ready and price it correctly for current market conditions.

If you’re buying a home, now is actually a great time. Why? Because, the real estate market slows down for the fall/winter season, mortgage experts recommend locking in current low rates, and, historically, fall and winter offer lower home prices than the spring and summer. Go ahead and search Westerville homes for sale to see properties that match your wish list.
