January Home Sales Continue Upward Momentum
Sales for the Month Highest Since 2007
Greater Cincinnati recorded one of its best January home sales ever, up + 9.6 %, compared to a year ago. January home sales were 1,367 compared to 1,247 in January 2015. The strength of January home sales is a continuation of 2015’s strong ending, which recorded the greatest annual home sales since 2006.
“January home sales continued to be strong, coming off a very impressive 2015,” said Patti Stehlin, President of the Cincinnati Area Board of REALTORS®. “This is a great market for both buyers and sellers, especially with interest rates still low and our local housing market remaining very affordable,” said Stehlin.
