Dublin Area Market Report

By
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

There are areas of the City of Columbus which are in school districts that are not the City of Columbus School district. Parts of northwest Columbus are in the Dublin City School district.  For example some neighborhoods off Sawmill Rd and off Frantz Road.   

The problem with the TrendGraphix Market Reports I create for my blogs is that they are only available for an MLS area.  The problem with our MLS areas are they've been around a long time and they really don't make a lot of sense. The good news is I believe we will be getting away from MLS areas because of mapping shortly.  Yahoo!  

Buyers don't come to REALTORS® and say "I want to buy a home in MLS area 21 or area 01."  Buyers say 'I want to be in the Dublin School District'  or 'I want to be in Dublin or Hilliard'  or 'I want to be in the Columbus School District.' Some buyers don't care at all what the school district is, but want to be in Northwest Columbus, or Northeast Columbus, the Clintonville Beechwold area or the campus area or a number of other areas. 

The school districts in the state of Ohio pre-existed much of the development of the City of Columbus.  There is an agreement called the "Win Win Agreement"  that allowed the city of Columbus to grow by annexing property in other school districts.  One of those school districts is the Dublin City School District. 

Twenty-six properties sold in November that were in Dublin School district and the City of Columbus (not in the Dublin Corporation limit) according to the MLS.  A year earlier the (second table below only 19 homes sold, but they sold higher.

Remember these are single family homes, townhouses and condos lumped togther.

Neighborhoods included in the 2006 sales above include: Summitview Woods,  Summit Forest,  Riverside Hills, Riverside Green,  Sawmill Forest, Summerwood (part of Summerwood is in Worthington Schools), Misty Meadows and McKitrick Estates.  Another thing I despise about  Trendgraphix is it lumps condos, townhouses (fee simple) and condos in together.  The 26 November 2006 sales included sales in  Tullers Plantation, Shiloh Station, Northdridge Village, Bethel Village and  Millcreek Commons... too broad a price range. I would like to be able to do graphics for single family only, condominium only.    

Just single family homes available now and the 16 sold in November 2006:  

More affordable pricing than within the City of Dublin but not as inexpensive as it looks when I bunch all the condominiums and townhouses in to make it comparable to the graphs on my blog.  A more true picture of life in a City of Columbus neighborhood in the Dublin School District.

Areas 01 and 21  

The graph above is for two MLS areas that are in the City of Columbus and the Dublin School District.  Both MLS areas have some neighborhoods which are Dublin Schools but one also has neighborhoods  that are in the Columbus, and Hilliard school districts.  The other MLS area also has neighborhoods that are Columbus schools and  Worthington Schools.  The 26 homes sold in the Dublin District are among the 109 homes on the graph above.

Dublin (w/ in Corporation) November 2006 sales  Average sold price in the City of Dublin in November 2006 was $327,000 (this is single family, townhouses and condos.

When I moved to Columbus the first house we (my husband and I)  put in contract was in the Ballymead , the agent we were working with told us it was in the City of Dublin.  Ballymead is in the city of Columbus, but the Dublin City School District.  Ballymead has a Dublin mailing address.  I think back and wonder if she really knew the house was not in Dublin (the MLS areas were C01, C21, C31 back then... the C stood for Columbus) or if she was confused, that was back when everyone worked for the seller in a sale, the days of subagency. Still you could not misrepresent the house was in a community it was not in, I think she was confused.

Consumers:  Please visit Discover Columbus for CURRENT Central Ohio Real Estate Market Reports - this is old news but for some reason there are still a lot of views.  Although ActiveRain / Localism has a category for market reports a local ActiveRain member was highly opposed to my sharing this information.
