Next is the Morrow median price summary chart.

So what can we determine from the latest statistics?
- Sales volume continued to be steady, staying in the 20s. The number of homes for sale increased also. That's not a bad thing considering how scarce homes for sale have been throughout Warren County.
- Home prices were solid but in a much broader range than usual when you compare the least and most expensive homes sold. 2 of the 24 homes sold below 100k and 6 sold above 300k, thus the big jumps in average and median prices.
- Time to go under contract is still short, with 1/2 of the homes sold under contract in 12 days or less.
- The number of homes under contract dropped very slightly, but 53 is still a nice chunk of homes, so June's numbers should be good also.
- Distressed property is low, accounting for 2 of the 24 sold and none of the 62 for sale.
- New construction is still a sizable portion of homes for sale, with 18 new construction homes of the 62 for sale.
So what does this mean to you as a Morrow single family home owner?
STILL NO CHANGE FROM LAST MONTH: Low inventory levels work to your advantage, just as long as you take into account the new construction competition. If you live in a community still actively building, that's a key consideration when pricing your home.
Overall, demand varies based on subdivision or rural location, home features, new construction competition, etc.
Buyer demand is obviously there based on the number of homes under contract. However, it does typically take longer to sell than other communities with an easier commute to Cincinnati.

So what does this mean to you as a potential Morrow home buyer?
NO CHANGE HERE EITHER: Competition for the best homes is there, but it's not as severe as other places in Warren County. The best homes CAN sell quickly. Inventory is VERY low. If Morrow's location fits your needs, there is good value in Morrow homes. The commute is actually faster than most people expect, and there's both resale and new construction to choose from for your purchase. You've got your pick of VERY affordable housing.
Inventory levels are NOT as high as other areas of Warren County, so depending on your housing needs, there may not be a good match on the market. You can use these Search Morrow Homes For Sale links to get an idea of what is currently offered.
However, one key piece of advice that applies in Morrow and elsewhere: If you see something you like, don't wait on it assuming there will be a price reduction. Get your offer written, submitted and negotiated to final signatures as rapidly as possible.
