What does this mean? 

As the average list price continues to climb the average sale price was keeping pace during June.  The smaller price versus sale price gap reflects sellers are getting more realistic about pricing.  The number of homes for sales has risen slightly -good news for buyers- but may force some sellers to drop their prices.

The final note on the June home sales in Cincinnati update:  

  • Single family homes listed for sale for more than 6 months need to drop their prices now!
  • Home Inspections usually cause heartburn for the sellers so be prepared to fix what’s broken and don’t assume the next buyer won’t ask for the same things (or more).
  • Fall is just around the corner and the pace of home sale will most likely slow down as kids start heading back to school as early as mid-August in our area.
