As we enter what’s typically the busiest time of the year for home sales, being in the know about local market trends and conditions is vital to your success. Your clients are counting on you to have the information that will give them a competitive advantage in the market.

It’s not always easy to have your finger on the pulse of the real estate market across a large region. But there is merit in comparing key indicators and statistics to gain perspective and clarity on variables such as home values, sales volume, market trends, and year-to-year comparisons. 

We know it’s a hectic time for you. And you’re probably focused on prepping home listings, coordinating in-person and virtual open houses, and beating the bushes for new clients. We’re here to provide some market research that will help sell more homes this year! 

Let’s look at the state of the market in four local counties – Columbiana, Mahoning, and Trumbull in Ohio and Mercer in Pennsylvania. In each county, we’ll provide market information for three different cities to give you a valuable cross-section of the county. 

This data constantly changes. So exact numbers may vary– we’ll try to focus on the trends and differences related to geography. That alone will equip you with the information you need.
