We will discuss the latest Columbus Ohio real estate market trends & news and find out how they can affect the investors and homebuyers in the latter half of 2020. Columbus is a slowly and steadily growing real estate market that will be thriving well into the foreseeable future. The real estate statistics in Columbus show us that while the construction is increasing, inventory is still scarce because of increasing demand. This is leading to a steady year-over-year increase in the Columbus house prices. Last year Columbus was ranked #3 among 20 Hottest Housing Markets listed by Realtor.com.
The entire Greater Columbus Metro Area was ranked seventh on the Realtor.com's list of the toughest markets for homebuyers, based on the area's 9% decline in listings year-over-year in January 2020, and 13% increase in median listing prices year-over-year to $285,000. There were just 8.1 listings per 1,000 households that showed strong relative demand and limited relative supply. Due to the impact of Covid-19, the Frankin county saw only 1,092 valid sales totaling $243.2 million in April – a 42% decline from the same month in 2019.
The latest “COLUMBUS HOUSING MARKET REPORT” is given below.
Is it a good time to buy a house or invest in Columbus? Let’s talk a bit about Columbus and the surrounding metro area before we discuss what lies ahead for investors and homebuyers. Columbus, Ohio is the 14th largest city in the U.S. It is home to almost nine hundred thousand people. Forbes reported in 2018 that Columbus is a rare Midwest success story, a “Rust Belt” city that has truly transformed itself and has begun growing again.
It is the only large northern city to grow by more than 10% between 2010 and 2018. Compare this to many northern cities continuing to hemorrhage people, whether they are moving to the suburbs or the south. This makes the Columbus housing market much healthier than Cleveland, Detroit, and smaller Ohio cities from which it has drawn population. The Columbus Ohio real estate market is bigger than many think. Take the suburbs into account, and the Greater Columbus metro area encompasses around two million people. Around 2.4 million people live in the combined statistical area (CSA).
The current home prices in Columbus are relatively low, so if you want to invest in Columbus real estate, then now would be a great time to do so. It is the second-largest metro area in the state. The area is expected to grow by more than 50% over the next 20-25 years. The real estate appreciation rate in Columbus in the latest quarter was around 0.45% which equates to an annual appreciation rate of 1.81%. Even small changes in the appreciation rate can change the long-term value of buying considerably.

We shall also discuss some important reasons why you may want to consider buying Columbus investment properties in 2020. You will get a fair amount of knowledge of the fundamentals of this hot real estate market. Please note that real estate prices are deeply cyclical because its demand side is impacted by economic cycles. Much of it is dependent on factors you can’t control. The recent example is COVID-19 which has badly impacted our economy. Therefore, many variables can potentially impact the value of the real estate in Columbus in 2020 (or any other market) and some of these variables are impossible to predict in advance.

Columbus Ohio Real Estate Market Forecast 2020 – 2021
What are the Columbus real estate market predictions for 2020? We get to find that on Zillow, the median home value in Columbus is $174,109. Let us look at the price trends recorded by Zillow over the past few years. Since 2015, the median home prices in Columbus have appreciated by around 57%, from $111,000 to $174,109. The prices rose by 8.4% over the last 12 months alone. Last year saw was the seventh consecutive year of home price gains.
The Zillow Buyer-Seller Index (BSI) considers Columbus a sizzling hot seller’s real estate market. This is computed monthly. According to their index, there exists a limited supply of homes in Columbus, and buyers are forced to compete often resulting in higher prices and/or quicker sales that tend to benefit sellers. In other words, based on the last month’s key housing market indicators, the demand is exceeding the supply, giving sellers an advantage over buyers in price negotiations. There are fewer homes for sale than there are active buyers in the marketplace.
The latest Columbus real estate market forecast is that the home prices may remain flat or decrease by a mere 0.6% – in the next twelve months. This could be due to the short term impact of the ongoing pandemic which has impeded the real estate sales activity in the entire country.
The question is whether it is going to remain a sizzling real estate market amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, which no one knows when it is going to end.
OUR TAKE ON COLUMBUS HOUSING MARKET FORECAST
Columbus has been one of the hottest real estate markets in the country for years. It is also one of the hottest real estate markets for investing in rental properties. This market is very much skewed to sellers due to a very low level of inventory that can't meet the demand of the rising population. The impact of the pandemic would be a drop in home sales and flattening of prices, both of which are short term. The uncertainty lies only in the lasting of this crisis. Whenever it ends, things would be back to normal.
The home sales will drop temporarily without affecting the prices. It is expected that there will be some increase in the inventory levels due to COVID-19. If buyer demand eases, we could see a positive influence on Columbus' low inventory levels while at the same time seeing a negative impact on sales. Columbus and the entire metro area market is so hot that it cannot shift to a complete buyer’s real estate market, for the long term.
In a balanced real estate market, it would take about five to six months for the supply to dwindle to zero. In terms of months of supply, Columbus can become a buyer’s real estate market if the supply increases to more than five months of inventory. And that’s not going to happen. Therefore, in the long term, the Columbus real estate market remains strong and skewed to sellers, due to persistent imbalance in supply and demand.
Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, timing your local market is an important part of real estate investment. Currently, the inventory is relatively increasing in Columbus, so buyers should take advantage of scooping up their favorite deals which otherwise are taken away by seasoned investors in the bidding wars.

Columbus Real Estate Market: Is It A Good Place For Investment?
Now that you know where Columbus is, you probably want to know why we’re recommending it to real estate investors. Investing in real estate is touted as a great way to become wealthy. Should you consider Columbus's real estate investment? Many real estate investors have asked themselves if buying a property in Columbus is a good investment? You need to drill deeper into local trends if you want to know what the market holds for the real estate investors and buyers in 2020.
If you are looking to make a profit, you don’t want to buy the most expensive property on the Columbus real estate market and expect to make a good profit on rents. Perhaps you are looking for a slightly different hold-over, an investment property in Columbus that you might move into or sell at retirement in the future. Either way, knowing your profit potential and purpose is the first thing to consider.
Let’s take a look at the number of positive things going on in the Columbus real estate market which can help investors who are keen to buy an investment property in this city. We’ll address the biggest factor pulling people to the Columbus housing market next.
1. Columbus Real Estate Is Appreciating for Many Reasons
A city that’s losing people is typically going to see property values decline, though desirable neighborhoods may see steady or slight increases in valuation. The Columbus Ohio housing market is seeing steady growth due to slow population growth. Between 2013 and 2018, property values have increased. Over the last year, prices increased by around 8%. This is partially due to the demand for older, renovated homes in established, walkable neighborhoods. The limited supply of family-friendly homes in these areas is driving up their prices.
2. Real Estate Investor Friendly Policies Make It a Great Opportunity
One interesting factor driving property valuations in the Columbus Ohio real estate market is city tax abatements in downtown neighborhoods. The city is encouraging people to buy up properties and renovate them, whether to rent out or live in themselves. Another point in favor of Columbus is that they didn’t crack down on private rentals like Airbnb. For example, they decided in 2018 not to limit the number of days people could rent their homes out on Airbnb and similar sites.
3. Columbus is Landlord Friendly
Ohio is rather landlord-friendly, in the same category as Idaho and North Carolina. That makes it much more landlord-friendly than neighboring Midwestern states and far better than Pennsylvania. There are no laws regarding pets, payment grace periods, or re-keying. Interest owed on deposits is modest. Rental agreements are recommended but not required for short leases. There is no statutory limit on late fees but they must be “reasonable”.
4. Columbus' Economy Is Healthy
We’ve already mentioned that Columbus, Ohio is considered a “Rust Belt” city that’s unique for a rebound. It enjoys unemployment rates around 4%, but this is phenomenal compared to the surrounding area. The US saw incomes grow 22% between 2010 and 2016. Columbus metro area incomes grew roughly 25%. The city’s economy is healthy enough to retain many young people and attract some coming here to work, but it isn’t so hot that the bubble may burst. Most of the Columbus housing market growth has been younger people moving there from Ohio. This includes but isn’t limited to those who came for school but decided to stay.
5. Columbus' Sizable Student Market Is a Boon to Investors
Columbus, Ohio is the state capital. This means there are several universities in the city. Franklin University hosts nearly five thousand students. Capital University has about three thousand students. Ohio Dominican University is home to nearly two thousand students. There are nearly 40 colleges within fifty miles of Columbus. And the sheer variety of colleges in the area means that investors can rent to the large population of students in the Columbus Ohio real estate market without worrying about their property values rising and falling based on the popularity of a flagship school.
6. Columbus' Demographic Momentum Will Keep the Market Strong
Between kids attracted to the Columbus Ohio housing market for school and work and choosing to stay to start their own families, the Columbus market enjoys a median resident age of 32.3. This is seven years less than the median age for the state of Ohio. We can expect the next generation to grow up here to stay, as well, fueling demand for the Columbus housing market.
7. Columbus' Tax Climate Is Balmy
Ohio’s effective property tax rate is 1.6%. That’s higher than the national average. However, Ohio is better than its peers for real estate owners, since its property tax rates are lower than those in several surrounding Midwestern states. Property tax rates do vary between counties, so you may pay lower property taxes for investment property in the suburbs as in downtown Columbus.
8. The Low Cost of Living Attracts and Keeps Residents
Columbus, Ohio has to compete with many other surrounding cities in the Midwest. However, one point in its favor is the lower cost of living. That attracts residents who earn just as much here as in Chicago but don’t have to pay as much for things. The annual salary is a little less than the national average, but rents and housing are even lower – and much lower than hotter markets like Chicago.
9. Columbus House & Rent Prices Are a Bargain
The median house price in Columbus is around 174,000 relative to the national median price of $280,000. According to RENTCafé, the average rent for an apartment in Columbus is $959, a 4% increase compared to the previous year. Despite these increases, rents are still relatively affordable in Columbus, with about 65% of the rental housing units going for $1,000 per month or less, and 25% of the units going for $1,001-$1,500. It has a large rental market with the median rent around $850 a month. This yields a decent return on investment for real estate owners.
10. Redevelopment in Columbus
There are at least ten major redevelopment projects planned around Columbus, Ohio. These projects total to an estimated billion dollars. Each of these redevelopment projects will increase the demand for homes in the area. In neighborhoods with new luxury condos, shopping, and employers, everyone’s property will be worth more. This allows real estate investors to invest in the Columbus Ohio real estate market in one or multiple locations, depending on their budgets and preferences. Nor do you have to worry about the one multi-family housing unit you bought collapsing in value because the mega-project in downtown was delayed or fell through for lack of funding.
Columbus Investment Properties: Real Estate Investment
Investing in the Columbus real estate can be a worthy investment due to a steady rate of appreciation. It’s only wise to think about how you can and should be investing your money. In any property investment, cash flow is gold. Should you consider Columbus real estate investment? The Columbus real estate market is a bright spot in a declining region. It mixes smart redevelopment, quality of life, and growth to create a stable, slow-growing market that will be thriving well into the foreseeable future. If you're looking to buy Columbus investment properties, it makes sense to do so when inventory levels are relatively high, like in the current phase of the pandemic.
The surplus of available opportunities can lead to softer negotiations with sellers. Columbus has a lower cost of living than the national average. Good cash flow from Columbus investment properties means the investment is, needless to say, profitable. A bad cash flow, on the other hand, means you won’t have money on hand to repay your debt. Therefore, finding a good Columbus real estate investment opportunity would be key to your success. If you invest wisely in the Columbus real estate, you could secure your future. The best investment is now looking for a rental property that will generate good cash flow.
Your best tenants would be the retirees who intend to relocate to Columbus and want to purchase property to rent out. The running costs for owning and managing a Columbus rental property should not be high. While hiring a property management company you should expect to give up roughly ten percent of the rent for each property they manage. Remember to factor this loss into your calculations when budgeting for a new rental property.
The three most important factors when buying a real estate anywhere are location, location, and location. The location creates desirability. Desirability brings demand. There should be a natural and upcoming high demand for rental properties. Demand would raise the price of your Columbus investment property and you should be able to get a good return on your investment over the long term. The neighborhoods in Columbus must be safe to live in and should have a low crime rate. The neighborhoods should be close to basic amenities, public services, schools, and shopping malls.
A cheaper neighborhood in Columbus might not be the best place to live in. A cheaper neighborhood should be determined by these factors – Overall Cost Of Living, Rent To Income Ratio, and Median Home Value To Income Ratio. It depends on how much you are looking to spend and if you are wanting smaller investment properties or larger deals such as duplex and triplex in Class A neighborhoods. The inventory is low, but opportunities are there.
When looking for real estate investment opportunities in Columbus or anywhere in the country, the generally accepted standard is to purchase a property that will give you a modest but minimum of 1% profit on your investment. An example would be: at $120,000 mortgage or investment cost, $1200 per month rental. That would be the ideal equation for example. Even with rent increases, buying a $500,000 investment property in Columbus is not going to get you $5000 per month on rent.
Homes downtown tend to sell at higher prices than those on the city's south side. There are many neighborhoods to consider for buying properties in Columbus. Properties in Worthington and downtown Columbus have higher than average median home prices, and their relatively low crime rates add additional appeal. Places like Victorian Village, where home prices remain higher than many other places in the city, support a strong local market, and they can signify a lower level of risk. Some of the other popular neighborhoods in Columbus, Ohio are Upper Arlington, North Linden, and Grandview Heights.
Upper Arlington has a median listing price of $450K, making it the most expensive neighborhood. South Linden is the most affordable neighborhood in Columbus with a median listing price of $59K. Even as Columbus's home prices have reached new heights, they are still near to the national average, and the market remains attractive to residential real estate investors. As they continue to compete for potential investment properties at the lower end of the market, the challenges for first-time homebuyers will remain. Millennial homebuyers can't outbid real estate investors and hence end up renting.
As with any real estate purchase, act wisely. Evaluate the specifics of the Columbus housing market at the time you intend to purchase. Hiring a local property management company can help in finding tenants for your investment property in Columbus. If it is your first time to invest in Columbus real estate, then you would have to be aware of common beginner’s mistakes. Beginners would usually follow the media, buy a property, and wait for its value to increase. This could be risky. Real estate investing requires research. We recommend doing your research or hiring a real estate investment specialist for guidance.

Is It The Right Time To Invest In Real Estate? – The national homeownership rate is on the decline for the first time since 2017. As demographics change and baby boomers retire, you’re seeing Millennials who may not be ready to buy houses. In 2018, Millennials made up about 22 percent of the population in the United States. They’re choosing to rent over buying a single-family home or an apartment. Rising home prices and shortage of starter homes have not left Millennials many choices but to delay homeownership. Moreover, it's even harder to take out a mortgage for those who have student loan debt.
Columbus | Ohio Real Estate Investment Opportunities
There are many other markets in the state of Ohio for real estate investing. Cincinnati is one of them. The Cincinnati real estate market is on the upswing and looking strong for the foreseeable future. It provides many opportunities for investors, regardless of the market you want to invest in. It is growing faster than the nation as a whole, though this is partially due to its recovery from a low point during the Great Recession. It is recovering home values and growth in cheap markets can yield the greatest ROI.
Cleveland is another good market to invest in real estate. Cleveland is a notable exception to the decline of the Rust Belt cities. It has managed to reinvent itself, shifting from classic manufacturing to biotech and medicine. In the process, it has maintained its population and has strong potential for growth both economically and demographically.
Similarly, you can also consider Akron for real estate investing. It also presents a great opportunity for real estate investors. Akron has been known as the “Rubber Capital of the World” for more than a century. It is home to around 200,000 people. However, the Akron real estate market is much larger than this. Include the suburbs and small towns that surround it, and the Akron housing market contains roughly 700,000 people. The Akron area has hit it's low and is starting to appreciate. This is a safer choice than buying in depressed areas that may not recover anytime soon.
Dayton is the sixth-largest city in Ohio. The city is home to roughly 140,000 people. The metro Dayton Ohio housing market includes around 800,000 people. Home values are predicted to go up steadily in the next five to six years making Dayton a great place for real estate investing. The Dayton Ohio real estate market is one of the best deals in the Midwest. It balances affordable properties with strong future growth, a large rental market and stable property values, low carrying costs, and decent ROI.
