columbus ohio real estate: Welcome to the 2019 Central Ohio Real Estate Market - 05/02/19 07:29 AM
One word for our 2019 spring market... HOT.  
For all the positive ideas that brings for home sellers keep in mind where there is fire, there can be some burning. There is still such a thing as properly pricing a home.  And a home that is on the market longer than 2-3 weeks is likely overpriced.  In the Columbus metro area, there are more pockets than usual that are revitalizing.  This is great for our communities and neighbors, but if you are an inexperienced investor looking to flip a home, be sure you have the solid advice of an active and experienced … (0 comments)
