Market Conditions are different in every area of Columbus. If your a seller please keep in mind that the hottest thing happening for sellers currently is to have some options if you need to sell your home. If you find yourself heading into financial difficulty due to a job transfer and you can't get your home sold, please call me and I'll give you other options to keep your home and let someone else pay your loan down for you.
