History Of Homes Sold in the Cleveland Area

Here is a look at the current Northern Ohio real estate market and how many homes have sold over the last so many years/months. You’ll notice that the trend goes down. The same applies to most areas/cities in the United States and we’re all aware of the amount of foreclosures and short sales on the market right now. So how many homes have sold and are selling? We’ve compiled the complete history of Northeast, Ohio.

Notice the housing market time and season over the last three months. Keep in mind in Cleveland and all over the Northeast, sales typically slow or decline somewhat during the winter months and the holidays. Weather does impact the housing market. If Cleveland is having a particularly bad winter, many home buyers will wait it out until it clears. We’ll keep you posted in the next quarter to compare the home sold statistics.  Spring is a new animal for real estate. Those numbers will be interesting to watch and a bit more realistic.
