The rate of homes sold across Ohio in February rose 5.8 percent from the level posted during the month a year ago, according to the Ohio Association of REALTORS®.

“The housing market across the Buckeye State was extremely solid in February, as the rate of sales activity reached the highest mark for the month since Ohio’s REALTORS® began tracking activity in 1998,” said OAR President Pete Kopf.“We’re also experiencing continued gains in the average price, an indication that housing is a solid, long‐term investment.

“As we move into the traditional spring home buying season, Ohio’s REALTOR® community is hopeful that we’ll see an increase in the number of homes being marketed for sale,” Kopf added.

February’s average home price of $152,236 reflects a 7.3 percent increase from the $141,890 mark posted during the month last year.

Sales in February reached a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 148,826, a 5.8 percent increase from the 140,677 level during the month a year ago. The market experienced a slight 1.1 percent decline in sales from January’s seasonally adjusted annual rate of 150,431.

Around the state, the average sales price increased in 15 of the 18 markets tracked. A total of eight markets experienced an uptick or remained unchanged in total sales activity.
