As we make our way into the New Year, it’s time once again to take a look at local real estate and give it a once over! Information from the Summit County Market Analysis always serves as a strong indicator of whether or not it’s a good time to buy or sell. Let’s take a look:

In fact, the February 2016 market was up 33% from the February market the previous year, with 13 more transactions and an additional $30 billion in gross volume. Residential sales this February grossed nearly $60 billion with 105 transactions, and of the 493 loans issued in February, 67% were related to sales.

In terms of buyer demographics, the pool remains split with Front Rangers making up 37% of the buyer market, Summit County locals making up 31% (which, according to the report also accounts for retires moving to the County), out-of-state buyers make up 32%, while international buyers only account for 1%.
