Columbus Realtors: January housing sales best in years

Not only were central Ohio housing sales up in January, but they showed the highest activity for that month since 2008. The 1,125 sales showed a 6.0 percent increase over January of 2011 according to the Columbus Board of Realtors.

In addition, 1,845 residential homes and condos were placed in contract – up over 40 percent from the same time one year ago.

“Sales last month were at the same level as we experienced just prior to the housing boom,” said Jim Coridan, 2012 President of the Columbus Board of REALTORS®. “It’s a direct result of the increased activity during the last few weeks of 2011 – and a great way to begin 2012.”
