January home sales in Cincinnati: 

  • The lack of homes for sale keeps pushing prices higher.
  • Weather (yes we actually had a snow and cold during the month) probably impacted the number of homes sold.
  • Interest rates have finally begun to creep up (though still very very low).  The change in rates may discourage some buyers but it may also get some off the fence.  Keep an eye on February sales to see the impact.
