Learn the 4 Essential Facts to Know Before You Buy a Home in Columbus

Video summary by Gemini Advanced AI

Considering a move to Columbus, Ohio? Before diving into your house hunt, get familiar with these four key aspects of the local housing market that might differ from your current location:

1. School Districts Matter (A LOT) in Columbus

Don’t assume that a Columbus address automatically determines your school district. Boundaries can be confusing here, so it’s crucial to search for homes by the school district you prefer.

2. Basement Basics

Basements are standard in Columbus homes, and ceiling heights matter! Prioritize homes with higher, finished basements for maximum value and usability. Watch out for crawl spaces, as they offer less usable square footage.

3. What to Expect with Exteriors in Columbus

Expect a mix of siding (like Hardy Plank or vinyl), stucco, brick, and sometimes stone veneer. These materials are generally low-maintenance and durable for the Ohio climate.

4. What to Expect with Interiors in Columbus

Two things to note: textured ceilings are the norm in Columbus, and while hardwood floors are popular, you’ll still find carpet, tile, and vinyl in various homes.
