What's My Morrow Ohio Home Worth? May 2020

Morrow had a big slow down for completed sales, but a HUGE number of homes under contract.  It makes sense when you consider that completed sales lag contracts and we spent much of March/April with people more concerned with shelter in place than finding a new shelter to call home.  Stick with us for further details.

We're including some easy to use Search Morrow Homes For Sale links at the end!

This report is specific to zip code 45152 (includes homes in portions of Union Township, Salem Township, Hamilton Township, Harlan Township and Washington Township in addition to Morrow).  45152 is covered primarily by Little Miami Schools but also has Lebanon and Kings school district present. 

For a free home valuation, home owners please click What Is My Morrow Ohio Home Value? and fill out the form.

All data is derived from the Cincinnati MLS system.  If any Morrow area homes traded hands without a REALTOR® involved, then those sales  won't be reflected in this report. 

Wedgwood of Morrow OhioWedgwood, a typical Morrow area subdivision (although the new construction is finished there!)

With regards to housing choices in 45152, there are quite a few developments, with the majority focused at the $200k price point with many starter type homes available well below that.  There are also several smaller communities with a focus on upper end properties with larger lots.  Additionally, there are some patio home communities also available.  And of course if your preference is rural living with more acreage, there's plenty of opportunity for that too! 

So, on to the review!
 
First up is the number of Morrow area single family homes sold on a month by month basis for 2014 through present month:

Next is the Morrow median price summary chart.

Morrow 45152 Single Family Home Summary:

Homes Active 6/28/2020 34 DOWN 2

Homes Pending 6/28/2020:  65 UP 14

Homes Sold: 17 (1 Bank/Government Owned, 1 Short Sale, 3 New Construction) DOWN 5

Average Price Sold:  $278,709 DOWN $21k

Median Price Sold:  $289,000 UP $31.5k

Average Days on Market for SOLD homes: 40 UP 7 (median 12)

Average Sales/List %:  98.5% DOWN 0.4%

Most Expensive Home Sold:  $505,000

Least Expensive Home Sold:  $49,000

 

So what can we determine from the latest statistics? 

  • Completed sales were definitely low for the time of year.  Looking at recent April totals 2020 is down significantly.  HOWEVER, take a look at the PENDING number:  65 homes under contract.  Obviously a bounce back is already in progress.     
  • What hasn't changed is the scarcity of homes for sale.  Only 34 not under contract, and 15 of those 34 are new construction.  That doesn't leave much to pick from for buyers!   
  • 3 of the 17completed sales were new construction.
  • Sales were in a tight band mostly between $100,000 and $300,000 range.  Two homes sold for less than $100,000 and 8 sold for more than $300,000.
  • Distressed property accounted for two of the 17 homes sold and none of the 34 for sale.

 

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

NO CHANGE:  Peak market time is here and the impact of coronavirus is lessening.    Buyers are still buying.  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.

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

 

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

NO REASON TO CHANGE OUR BUYER ADVICE 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.  Interested in new construction?  We can help with that too, so just call 513-520-5305.

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.

Fortunately for my local area, COVID impacts have not been as significant as some areas of the country.  The buying and selling continue, just lagging a bit from typical years.

It seems that somebody always has to live somewhere.  Since you know that area so well, you're expertise on what's going on and what's happening in that area is paramount to people moving there.

No matter what else is going on, people always need homes don't they?
