2015 breaks record in Central Ohio home sales
In 2015, residential real estate experienced its best year since the Great Recession ended in 2009. Although inventory could still use a jolt, demand was healthy throughout the year and there was enough supply to keep the engine strong.
Central Ohio saw 29,408 single-family and condominium home sales in 2015, up 9.3 percent from 2014 (26,917) marking the highest year for home sales on record. The last time home sales came close to being this high was in 2005 during the housing boom when annual sales reached 27,493 according to data gathered by Columbus REALTORS® from their Multiple Listing Service.
