A healthy influx of new listings in June resulted in the highest number of homes sold on record during any single month. There were 3,644 homes closed during this busy summer month, which was 15.6 percent higher than last year and 21.3 percent higher than May.

For the first half of 2021, home sales are also at a record high of 16,033 and 12.6 percent higher than last year according to the Columbus REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service.

Last year, we average about 3,000 listings each month. Last month, however, 4,359 homes were added to the market for sale. Columbus, Ohio’s motivated buyers certainly appreciated this, as these homes were quickly put under contract! Homes that went into contract in June set another record which, combined with the increase in new listings, suggest strong homes sales in July.

The average price of a home sold in June was $316,207, an increase of 15.8 percent from a year ago. The median sale price was $275,000, an increase of 14,1 percent over June 2020.

Year to date, homes sold during the first six months of 2021 sold at an average of $292,860 which is 15.9 percent ahead of last year. The median sale price of $251,000 is 13.1 percent higher than a year ago during the same period.

Not only were new listing and sales activity strong last month, but the time it took to put a home in contract dropped to an all-time low of 11 days in June 2021.

Homes under $350,000 sold in an average of 9 days. Homes sold between $350,000 and $500,000 took about 10 days to sell. Homes in the $500,000 to $700,000 price range sold in an average of 19 days, and homes over $700,000 were on the market for an average of 40 days.

For the first half of the year, homes have sold in an average of 18 days. Breaking this down by price range, homes under $350,000 sold in an average of 15 days. Homes priced $350,000 -$500,000 took 20 days. Homes between $500,000 and $700,000 took 30 days to sell and homes over $700,000 sold in an average of 45 days.

Homes under $350,000 have always been in high demand. This year, however, there is also significantly increased interest in higher priced homes.
