Just saw this indoor pool in a 6000 sq ft home in Berwick

For $499,900. A lot of nicely updated home for the money and it backs to the creek.

What’s new with 18-35 year old first time Columbus home buyers?

Well, they are smart and informed, much more knowledgable about the inventory and the process than any previous generation of home buyers.

This kitchen is from my listing at 142 Chase Rd in North Clintonville that went in contract in 2 days to a wonderful first time home buyer couple.

This kitchen is from my listing at 142 Chase Rd in North Clintonville that went in contract in 2 days to a wonderful first time home buyer couple.

I find this to be absolutely true and that’s one big reason why I enjoy working with first time Columbus home buyers so much. My aim is to add to that knowledge by blogging about Columbus Real Estate, networking with would-be buyers and simply being a voice to better inform Columbus area home buyers and sellers about the local industry.

Recently, Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate released the results of a national survey of 18-35 year old Americans, an estimated market that is 103 million strong.  ”The survey’s findings show that these two younger generations of potential homebuyers are not deterred from home buying and believe owning a home is a key indicator of success (75 percent). Furthermore, they are willing to do their research and save in ways that may surprise those who believe the values of Gen X and Y have strayed from those of their parents, including taking a second job and moving in with mom and dad.”

To the finding below, I would add that Columbus area home buyers are inquisitive about and interested in the investment aspects of real estate for long term financial wealth.

From their media release…..Key findings direct from the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate survey include:


• Not the “Me” Generation. The majority of Gen X and Gen Y survey respondents (71 percent) understand that homeownership is not something they deserve; rather it is something they must earn. Nearly all those surveyed are willing to adjust their lifestyle to save for a home by eating out less (62 percent), working a second job (40 percent) or even moving back home with their parents (23 percent).

• In the Know. Sixty-nine (69) percent believe that the recent housing downturn has made them more knowledgeable about homeownership than their parents were at their age. Gen X and Y members appear to be doing their homework before making one of the biggest investments of their lives. For those surveyed, interest rates (58 percent), home prices in a desired neighborhood (59 percent), and the ability to secure a loan (51 percent) are the top areas to research before buying.

• Homeownership is the New Bling. Gen X and Y are not blinded by flashy signs of success; 75 percent believe owning a nice home is a fundamental indicator of success over taking extravagant vacations (12 percent), owning an expensive car (9 percent), or owning designer clothing (5 percent).

• First Things First. Gen X and Y want to make sure they are ready to own. Sixty-nine percent believe someone is ready when they can afford to buy while also maintaining their lifestyle. For 61 percent of respondents, the “readiness indicator” is when they’ve landed a secure job.
