Lebanon Ohio 45036 Single Family Home Residential Market Report September 2013

How's the Lebanon Ohio real estate market as the fall season arrives?  Did we get the typical school has started slowdown?  Stay with us for the full Lebanon real estate market report and some Search Lebanon Ohio homes for sales links towards the end! 

All data is derived from the Cincinnati MLS system.  If any Lebanon homes traded hands without a REALTOR® involved, then it won't be reflected in this report. All data is for the Lebanon School District area, so is not limited solely to Lebanon city limits.

So what can we determine from the latest statistics? 

We'd consider this essentially a "normal" month for this time of year in Lebanon (if in real estate there is every truly anything normal!).  Sales volume did drop from last month (as expected), but overall 36 sales is still higher than most months in the past few years.  We're not huge fans of 10 of the 36 sales being distressed properties, but it is good that these homes in trouble are getting new owners who can take care of them.

The pricing is fairly consistent with the expected range, with a balance towards cheaper homes this month (5 sales below $100k, only 2 above $300k). 

Inventory is flat, with actives and pendings almost the same as last months totals.  Days on market for the sold homes is constant also.  

The Lebanon luxury ($500,000 or more) real estate market continues to be slow and luxury home owners are losing the battle with Mason unless  the home offers something the buyers can't find in Mason (think horse farms, lots of acreage, etc.).

So what does this mean to you as a Lebanon single family home owner?  Overall, there's still no major deterrent to selling your Lebanon home.  The market is still much better than recent years and your odds of success are solid with proper marketing and pricing.  The biggest ongoing objection from buyers will be a perception of being "too far out", but that's okay.  Fact is, the opportunity to be successful is here now.  Hire us and cooperate with our advice and we can give you a clear path to success.   The key will continue to be PRICE RIGHT, MARKET RIGHT. 

Be aware you're competing with some distressed properties AND new construction.  And buyers are still quite willing to throw out a low offer and see if it sticks.

For an evaluation of your specific home's marketability, please contact us. 

 

So what does this mean to you as a potential Lebanon home buyer? 

No real change here, you've got competition although perhaps a bit less as school has started and some buyers don't want to disrupt the kids during the school year. The Lebanon market continues to offer good value and the area offers great quality of life.  Don't expect to seriously underbid a home and get to call it yours.  Sellers know they can wait for a better offer.  

The selection of foreclosed/short sale homes is also a bit broader than some other sections of the local market, with 23 foreclosed or short sale homes listed as Active in Cincinnati MLS.
