Median Home Sale Price Continues to Rise, Dashboard Data Shows

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The median sale price of homes in Franklin County increased 17 percent to $245,000 in October compared to the same month last year, according to new data from the Real Estate Dashboard.

The large increase in sale price continues a trend over the last few months: in September, median sale price increased 20 percent, and in August the price increased 19 percent.

“With prices continuing to rise, a house continues to be a great investment for homeowners,” Franklin County Auditor Michael Stinziano said.

However, the total number of sales in October declined to 2,451, 499 fewer than in October 2020, and the total sales amount of all home sales declined 5 percent to $676 million, the dashboard shows.

The Real Estate Dashboard is a highly localized web app that shows recent home sales on a GIS map. The tool can display sales data by municipality, school district, or area commission, giving homeowners a better sense of sales activity in their neighborhoods.

October sales by the numbers:

  • 2,451 total number of sales
  • $ 245,000 median sale price 
  • $ 676 million in total sales 

The dashboard is optimized for both desktop computers and mobile devices, and continues to be updated monthly.
