Mahoning County Residential Real Estate Market Update - March 2016

The local Mahoning County residential real estate market is steady as she goes.  We have seen consistent improvements in sales over the past few years.  Other than the lack of available homes for sale in some areas, the overall outlook looks healthy.

Comparing the first three months of 2016 to the same period last year:

Closed sales were up 10.8%, from 520 sales in 2015 to 576 sales this year.  

Pendings (homes under contract but not yet closed) also increased in the first quarter of this year.  There were a whopping 746 pending sales, up 16.9% from 638 in 2015.  This is one of the highest number of pendings reported for the first quarter in the past 10 years.  This is very encouraging as we move into the Spring selling season!
