COLUMBUS, Ohio – Homes for sale are being snatched up before the “for sale” sign is even posted in the front yard.
That’s what Michael Kruse of Gahanna says when he described selling his home.
“I can’t believe I just sold a house in one day,” Kruse says.
He bought his home in 2011. It was a foreclosure that was structurally sound, but in need of serious updating.
He added fresh coats of paint, installed new flooring in the bathroom, and did most of the work himself.
When he decided to return to college, he put his house on the market. He hired a company to stage his house, but never even got that far.
