Columbus Area Homes under $200,000 – Do they exist? Where?

Unbelievably, 48% of all homes actively listed in the MLS, as of this afternoon, are $200,000 or less. I find this remarkable. Very nearly half of the homes for sale in Central Ohio fall into what I would call an ‘affordable’ range.

And yet, finding and purchasing a home, especially for a first time home buyer in Franklin County, whose list price has six figures and starts with the number one is like searching for the White Whale – you know it’s out there somewhere but when will it surface?

Well, it turns out that only 45% of those 1915 homes under $200,000 are in Franklin County. Of those, most reside in a part of town where similar homes sell for similar values – up and coming neighborhoods that might suffer from lack of recognition and resources.

In North Clintonville (all of 43214) for example, there is only one home listed at under $200,000 (and the only reason that home is still on the market is a tale for tomorrow’s post). Probably not surprising – 54% of the 1915 homes under $200,000 are also under $100,000. Just remember, you get what you pay for and increasingly, homes under $100,000 fail to meet expectations. In case you’re wondering, 17.5% of all active homes were $500,000 and higher – which leaves only about 35% of all active homes in that sort of sweet spot for move-up buyers of $200-500,000.
