Good news, foreclosures in central Ohio fell drastically in 2013. In the eight county central Ohio region (Franklin, Delaware, Licking, Union, Fairfield, Pickaway, Madison and Knox counties) foreclosures are nearly 15% less than the previous year. Statewide foreclosures dropped 12 percent to the lowest level since 2006.

Low foreclosure rates is great news. But, overall inventory levels are now really low. It looks like the upcoming Spring and Summer season will be a real estate market that will favor Sellers and not Buyers.
