2008 New Albany Home Sale Statistics – Not the picture the media would have you believe!

As I was reading the “Business Page” of the Columbus Dispatch on Tuesday, I was struck once again, with how totally local real estate actually is.

I decided to take it one step further and look at New Albany specifically. The Ohio Association of Realtors reported that sales declined by 9.6% in Ohio and the Columbus Board of Realtors reported a 5.8% decline in home sales in February. New Albany unit sales in February were actually up slightly over 2007 and year to date are only 2 units off the 2007 pace. I’m not saying that we have seen the end of this challenging market but there is some good news and I think it’s important to share it!
