What's My Mason Ohio Home Worth? February 2020

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.520.5305 www.LizTour.com SAL.2002007747

We're in uncertain times thanks to corona.  This report covers a time frame prior to much of the news concerning the virus, schools closing, businesses closing, etc.  Mason Ohio would normally be considered a safer place than usual for buying a home that will hold value, so that's part of the good news.

The stats for February show 2020 beating 2019.  Now with social distancing in full play, showings and real estate activity is currently depressed.  Time will tell exactly how much impact will occur to values and home sales.

We'll cover Mason condos in our Mason Ohio 45040 Condo Market Report February 2020.

All data is derived from the Cincinnati MLS system and involves only Mason homes sold with  REALTOR® involvement and entered in MLS. All data is for the Mason School District area, so is not limited solely to Mason city limits
Long Cove community of Mason Ohio 45040



















Long Cove, home to many of Mason's luxury homes


So, on to the data!
First up is the number of Mason single family homes sold on a month by month basis for 2013 through present:

Days on Market Average: 98 UP 10 (median time 35 days)

Average Sales/List %:  97.1% UP 0.1%

Most Expensive Home Sold:  $1,270,000

Least Expensive Home Sold:  165,400

What are the key takeaways this month?

  • February was better than typical for a Februay.  Compare the graphs for completed sales and median price and both top the 2014-2019 comparable months. 
  • The big jump in Pending homes is also a good sign.
  • Time to sell is slowed a little more, but still good for what is typically not the busiest market time.
  • Sales prices were basically the same month to month.  6 of the 35 homes sold for more than $500,000 and 3 of those sold for more than $1,000,000.     
  • New construction sales accounted for 10 of the 35 sales.  These are ONLY the ones reported in MLS.  There are other new construction sales that are not entered in MLS.  New construction accounts for 50 of the 112 homes not under contract.
  • New construction communities are staying busy with Kensington, Kerrisdale, Roberts Park, Hudson Hills and Ambleside Meadows moving quickly.  Need help buying any new construction homes, just give us a call at 513-520-5305.  We work for you and NOT the seller and the good news is it doesn't cost extra for us to work for you (and you don't get  a price break for going solo).
  • Distressed properties (foreclosures and short sales) continued to be very scarce in Mason! None of the 23 homes sold were distressed, and only 1 foreclosure and no short sale is available in the 112 homes not under contract.  


So what does this mean to you as a Mason single family home owner? 

STILL NO REASON TO CHANGE: It depends on your price point.  The affordable homes will still move quickly.  The more expensive homes are competing with new construction so you have to make the deal appealing enough for buyers to skip building new to order.  There is an abundance of homes for sale priced $400k and up. 

Keep in mind, buyers still aren't keen on homes that show their age or feature decor from 20+ years ago, so the more up to date and the more compelling your asking price, the more likely buyers will flock to your door. 

For an evaluation of your home's marketability and worth, please contact us 513-520-5305 or Liz@LizSpear.com.  

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

NO CHANGE HERE EITHER.  The best homes move quickly and there are some segments of the market lacking choice.   Of the homes on the market, some have notable problems (busy roads, etc.) that will make them unsuitable for most buyers. Move fast and bid strong or expect to lose out on the best homes.  A weak offer may mean you're going to keep looking even longer.  We highly recommend do NOT wait to write that offer or you may lose the chance to own that home.

The longer you wait to purchase a Mason home the more likely it's going to cost you more to buy later.  When you're interested in buying a Mason home, please contact us at 513-520-5305 with your needs and we'll help you find the right Mason community for you! 

And get yourself a dedicated buyer's agent, whether for resale OR new construction!!  The listing agent works for the seller, and when you hire us we work for YOU.  We have incentive to get you the best possible price!
