Comparing single-family home sales in a variety of school districts across Cincinnati to the same timeframe last year.

House hunting by a school district is relatively common within the greater Cincinnati real estate market.  Remember many school districts cross over from one Multiple Listing area to another. For example, the Princeton School District covers Sharonville, Springdale, Evendale, Glendale, and even parts of West Chester.

Buyers often assume that all properties within certain neighborhoods are located in the same school district- but most school districts wrap around several communities.

If the school district is your primary concern, make sure you and your agent search by the school district, not suburb codes.


The table below compares single-family home sales from 01/01/22 to 10/31/22 versus the same timeframe in 2021.  Data on single-family homes were pulled from the CincyMLS.

2021 versus 2002 reflects a slightly slower market with home sales declining.  But across the board, the average sale price is still going up.  It’s difficult for some buyers to make a move.  Potential sellers afraid of having their property sold out from under them need to discuss strategies with their agents.  

Every area and associated school district is unique.  Your Realtor® can provide a list of sale price ratios as well as absorption rates.
