Central Ohio Home Sellers
The market remained a seller’s market throughout July and based on these graphs, it looks like August will continue the trend. Keep in mind that the market tends to cool in the fall and winter. With so much pent up demand, it’s hard to say whether this fall will be typical. But, if you’re thinking about selling your home, you might want to do so sooner than later. Homes generally take a little longer to sell and prices usually fall slightly.
