Across Ohio, the number of homes sold in April fell from the same month last year, but average home prices continued to rise, according to Ohio Realtors.
The number of home sales in April 2023 were 10,094 units, down 20.9% from the previous year’s 12,763 units. April’s Ohio-wide average sales price reached $268,257, up 4% from the April 2022 level of $258,000.
“Housing activity in Ohio continues to underperform year-over-year sales as we continue to face inventory shortages in a higher interest rate environment,” said Ralph Mantika, president of Ohio Realtors. “Nevertheless, the continued rise in average prices clearly shows that consumers understand that housing is a smart long-term investment. “
