Real estate sales activity for home sales in Central Ohio and specifically in the Knox County Ohio community were more stable than many had expected. It seems that the media wants everyone to believe that all real estate markets are the same and this is certainly not the case and all real estate markets are local. This past month the Knox County Board of Realtors reported 38 residential home sales in Knox County Ohio. The average sales price for September was $126,400. There has been a lot of discussion in the media lately about the current climate of the housing market. It seems that the majority of the media believes that America and the housing industry are in serious trouble. The reality is that the media should NOT assume that what is happening in Phoenix, San Francisco, Detroit, Naples or any other metro market has anything to do with the real estate trends that are taking place in Knox County Ohio. Something that the media is NOT taking into consideration is that Knox County Ohio has two very large, growing industries who specialize in the energy business. The energy business is booming and the backlog of orders is extensive and these manufacturing plants are investing over 20 million dollars in current expansions in our community. This investment is helping our community grow. Enjoy the fall seasonal colors and remember to take lots of pictures. Sam Miller
