Entire MLS:        

1040 residential sales compared to 918 in 2016, a 13%

increase.  $178,400 average price in the 4 county areas.

Delaware County:

584 homes sold with an average price of $220,100.

Total residential sales exceeded $128 million in value.  1/4th    of all sales

were homes over $300,000.  1/3rd of all sales were homes from

$140,000 to $300,000.  40% of all sales were for cash. 48% sold with 

conventional loans and 9% sold either FHA or VA.


313 homes sold compared to 291 in 2016, a 7% increase in sales.  Over

$68,000,000 residential sales in Grove during 2017…1/2 of Delaware

counties total sales.  The time to sell all active listing in the area (the

absorption rate) has dropped from around 12 months in 2016 to less

than 9 months last year.

The consensus is that homes are selling faster, there is less inventory to

choose from, prices are starting to finally increase and

homes are selling for a higher % of their last listed price.

Now is the time for more new construction in the area.  Now is the time

For sellers to get their properties listed so that buyers have a greater

choice.  2018 looks like a great year for buyers and sellers in the Grand

Lake area.
