Worthington Area Market Report

There are areas of the City of Columbus which are in school districts other than the City of Columbus School district. Parts of northwest / north Columbus are in the Worthington School District.  For example some neighborhoods off Smoky Row Rd, the Hard Road area and off Flint and Park Roads are in the City of Columbus but the Worthington school district.    

The problem with the TrendGraphix Market Reports I create for my blogs is that they are only available for an MLS area.  The problem with our MLS areas are they've been around a long time and they really don't make a lot of sense. The good news is I believe we will be getting away from MLS areas because of what we can now do with mapping .   

Buyers don't come to REALTORS® and say "I want to buy a home in MLS area 21 or area 31."  Buyers say 'I want to be in the Worthington School District'  or 'I want to be in the Westerville area'   or 'I want to be in the Columbus School District.' Some buyers don't care at all what the school district is, but want to be in Northwest Columbus, or Northeast Columbus, the Clintonville Beechwold area or the campus area or a number of other areas. 

The school districts in the state of Ohio pre-existed much of the development of the City of Columbus.  There is an agreement called the "Win Win Agreement"  that allowed the city of Columbus to grow by annexing property in other school districts. However the Worthington School District is not part of the Win Win Agreement.  The City of Columbus and the Columbus School District had an agreement with the Worthington School District before the Win Win agreement was negotiated affecting areas in a number of suburban Central Ohio school districts. 

Forty properties sold in November that were in the Worthington school district and the City of Columbus or a township, either Sharon or Perry (not in the Worthington Corporation limit) according to the MLS.  A year earlier the (second table below) 44 homes sold during the month of November.

Remember these are single family homes, townhouses and condos lumped togther.

Neighborhoods included in the November 2006 sales above include: Smokey Ridge Estates, Brookside Estates, Worthington Green, Geoffrey Estates, Smoky Mill, Worthington Hills, Olentangy Highlands, Western Hills, Christopher Woods, Woods at the Josephinum, Village at Worthington, Westworth Village, Worthington Village and Summerwood.  The condos represented in these statistics include: Wothington Woods, Worthington Park, The Farms, Woodbridge Village and Worthington Glen... again these neighborhoods are not in the Worthington Corporation they are in the City of Columbus or a township.  They are in the Worthington School District.

Just single family homes available now and the 29 sold in November 2006:  

More affordable pricing than within the City of Worthington but not as inexpensive as it looks when I bunch all the condominiums and townhouses in to make it comparable to the graphs on my blog.  A more true picture of life in a City of Columbus neighborhood in the Worthington School District.

The city of Worthington does have some affordable neighborhoods too and the difference in pricing is not as extreme as other areas of Central Ohio. 

Columbus areas 21 and 31    

The graph above is for two MLS areas that are in the City of Columbus and the Worthington School District.  Both MLS areas have some neighborhoods which are Worthington Schools but one also has neighborhoods  that are in the Columbus, and Dublin school districts.  The forty homes sold in the Worthington School District are among the 80 homes on the graph above.

Worthington (w/ in Worthington Corporation or the Village of Riverlea) November 2006 sales   Average sold price in the City of Worthington in November 2006 was $225,000 (remember this is single family, townhouses and condos lumped together. )

Schools - including the Dublin City School District

Communities - including the City of Columbus and the City of Dublin
