Columbus Real Estate Andrew ShowDon’t tell the tax assessor, but the sum total of Columbus residential real estate is worth about $163 billion! This figure comes from an analysis by LendingTree, which calculated the worth of 50 U.S. metros by their residential real estate value. The study is based on U.S. metro home values as of January 2020, along with proprietary company data.

Lending Tree names the “Most Valuable Cities in America” as New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington D.C. Out of the 50 metros in the list, Columbus placed at #36.

This is one of those times when placing lower isn’t a bad thing. Columbus median home prices reached $233,000 in May 2020. The median home price in Chicago was $308,000. The median NYC home sale price was $635,000!

Yet Central Ohio home prices have been climbing year-over-year. Rising prices and a dearth of entry-level home inventory are a persistent challenge for first-time home buyers.

Still, when it comes to home affordability, the Columbus Metro remains one of the best bangs for the buck. Last year, Attom Data Solutions found that Franklin County was among the limited markets where an average salary was enough to afford a median-priced home.
