Look for The Silver Lining! You Can Buy A Lot of House in Columbus, Ohio!

I just read an article in the Wall Street Journal real estate newsletter which really helped to put a new spin on real estate in New Albany, Columbus and the Midwest as a whole. We keep hearing about how bad the real estate market is but think about what you can actually buy here versus some other parts of the country.

Using $400,000 as a comparison:

In New Albany, you can buy a 3600 square foot home overlooking a golf course, with a screen porch, a finished recreation room in the lower level, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a 3 car garage.

In New York City, that same $400,000 will buy a 400 square foot studio apartment on the Upper East Side with a queen size Murphy bed, a new kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, a doorman and a bike room.

For $400,000 in Miami Beach you can buy a 1520 square foot condo with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths that 1,520-square-foot condominium. The condo, built in 1963, has bay views from every room, wood floors, kitchen appliances in mint condition and a parking space.

So, while prices on real estate in New Albany are off the peak of the market, your housing dollars still go a long way. It really is a good time to buy a home! Contact Kate or Tony to discuss home buying options in New Albany or the Greater Columbus area.
