When you’re hot, you’re hot! Columbus real estate is the 4th hottest market in the country, and a journalist for Realtor.com reached out to us for our perspective. We’re going to share those insights with you here, and expand on them a bit.

Columbus has been named a “hot” market multiple times since 2017 or so! Prior to that, Columbus earned headlines as the “most stable housing market” during the Great Recession, along with repeated “Best Place to Live” rankings by various media sites. A number of Columbus suburbs have also been named as hot markets and best places to live.

What’s our secret? Why are so many people drawn to the Columbus area?

Our answer for the Realtor.com article was condensed for space:

“Although home prices here are modest at $375,000, local real estate agent Andrew Show of Buyer’s Resource Realty Service points to the “energy” in the area that comes from having several world-class universities, state government offices, and headquarters for L Brands, Nationwide Insurance, and more. Show also touts the city’s progressive leanings, and commitment to containing sprawl even as it redevelops older neighborhoods. As a result of all this, Show says, “We’re not experiencing any downturn.”

Now we’ll add a few things here! Columbus is a highly desirable place to live, having excellent public parks, museums, cultural arts and amenities, year-around hometown festivals and major events. Plus, a steady influx of bright, young adults entering the University of Ohio and other institutions. The promising job market encourages these students to remain in Columbus after graduation, which helps keep our city young, vibrant and growing!

As mentioned in a prior blog, Columbus is the only Midwestern city to add over 100,000 residents during the last decade. It is estimated that the region’s population will triple by 2050. It’s likely that Columbus will remain on the “hottest markets” list for years to come! (If you’re a home buyer, don’t wait for the market to slow down…it could take a while!)
