New Albany Ohio Real Estate – 2010 Recap

You don’t have to look too hard for some encouraging real estate news in New Albany from last year. Overall, prices stabilized and unit sales were up 13% over the 2009 numbers versus a 5% decrease in unit sales in the entire Columbus Board of Realtors. As you will see in the chart below, some neighborhoods faired a little better than others. The New Albany Links and New Albany Country Club communities significantly improved in units sold but lost a little ground in sales prices while The Preserve and Albany Park saw improvement in sales prices.

Did The $8000 Tax Credit Help The New Albany Real Estate Market?

With the $8,000 tax credit for 1st time home buyers about to expire on November 30th, I was expecting to see a lot more  New Albany homes for sale and Columbus homes for sale going into contract.  When the tax credit was announced, the experts thought it would jump start the housing market.  From my vantage point, there has been little “trickle up” effect seen in New Albany Ohio real...

Is there a Foreclosure Problem in New Albany, Ohio?

An article in the August 13th issue of the Columbus Dispatch referred to a growing foreclosure problem in the suburbs of Columbus.  I began to wonder if this applied to New Albany as well.  I searched the  Multiple Listing Service to see how many of the homes that have sold in NA so far this year were either Foreclosed properties or Short Sale properties. 22 Foreclosed or Short Sale Homes Sold in...

Franklin County Auditor Confirms Zero Increase in Tax Valuation This Year!

Tony and I returned from vacation on Sunday. On Monday, I tackled a mountain of mail being held by the post office. The item I was most interested in was the notice from Joe Testa's office (Franklin County Auditor) announcing the proposed valuation of our home for 2008. Yours was probably just like mine – it shows no increase in valuation from 2007. 2008 is the year for the triennial update of...

On-Line Home Value Sites Can Be Misleading

We recently did a market analysis for a prospective seller in New Albany.  They were surprised that my actual analysis was different from the one they got using an on-line valuation service.   Zillow.com and Cyberhomes.com are two sites that will generate a suggested market value of your home using computer models.  We find their results to be very hit or miss. These programs cannot take into...
