Welch said 2017 home sales are keeping pace and exceeding 2016 home sales, which were the region’s second-best year ever.
Day on market also dropped, with Butler County homes on the market for 30 days through the first half of this year compared to 38 days in the first half of 2016.
Warren and Hamilton counties have also seen a steady performance in home sales.
Warren County has sold 1,669 homes in the first half of this year, 29 more than the same period in 2016, with Hamilton County selling 5,797 homes, 123 more than in 2016.
Only Clermont County dipped in sale in the first half of 2017, going from 1,509 homes sold in the first half of 2016 to 1,437 in the first half of 2017.

So what’s the forecast for the remainder of 2017?
“I would say steady as she goes with the normal seasonal adjustments, like for August, when typically we have less sales and following the trend-line that we’ve seen in the past several years,” Welch said. “It’s still an upward trend because of the demand on homes and the lack of supply and we’re seeing more building starting to take place, especially in the area of Mason and West Chester and the outlying area.”
