Following a record-breaking year, January’s housing activity fell flat as new listings, contracts and home sales dropped below those of 2021.

New listings were up 11 percent in 2021 but ticked down (0.5 percent) in the first month of 2022.

Home sales and contracts dipped 2.8 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively. Even so, home sales were still higher than any other year according to the Columbus REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

The median home price increased 11.1 percent to $250,000 and the average home price ($290,847) increased 10.4 percent compared to January of 2021.

Despite a moderate drop in sales, the housing market was very active in central Ohio last month. We believe some buyers are getting discouraged because of the low inventory. However, with time and a bit patience, we’re confident we can get them a home in Columbus

Population in the counties served by the Columbus REALTORS® MLS increased almost 13 percent between the 2010 and 2020 census representing 85.5 percent of the population growth for all of Ohio.

Keeping pace with the population growth, the number of new listings grew by just over 14 percent over the last decade. However, home sales have grown 58 percent during the same time frame.

Ten years ago, REALTORS® were selling 66% of the inventory. In 2021, they sold 91.3 percent!

columbus ohio real estate market in jan 2022 summary

Home sales are down 2.8% this year in Columbus compared to the same period last year. This can likely be attributed to a slow down in the very hot market we had mid-2020 and through most of 2021.

Still, the average sale price, median sale price, and the percentage of people receiving their expected price for their homes during a sale have all increased since the same time last year. Although last month’s data indicates a relative slow down, current data suggests that we will still likely have a relatively active real estate market this year.
