The year, 2016, was Ohio’s housing market’s busiest year since 2005. Statewide home purchases rose to 151,600 which is a 7.5% increase since 2015. This shows record gains in sales and average prices in Ohio. The average selling price for a Ohio home was $159,531 in December which is an increase for the same time period in 2015. This increase in Ohio’s housing market is accredited to increased job creation and low mortgage rates in 2016. The average mortgage rate on a 30 year, fixed-mortgage was 4.09% and the average rate on a 15 year, fixed-rate was 3.34% in January, 2017. At the end of 2016, there was a rise in mortgage rates that slowed the market down, but it seemed to quickly recover.
