Heart of Ohio Trail - 365 Things To Do in Knox County Ohio

by Sam Miller

 

Centerburg Heart of Ohio Trail

Heart of Ohio Trail.  With only 3.7 miles of asphalt, the Heart of Ohio Trail is well-suited for trail riders and hikers.  Parking is available at Centerburg Memorial Park giving a nice 7-plus mile round trip to the Delaware County line or an eastern trip to Mount Vernon, Ohio, of about 13 miles.  The current paved section is near Mount Liberty and parking is available.  Look for more paving work in 2011 to add another 3.5 miles connecting west to Updike Road.  The Heart of Ohio Trail shares several miles with Dry Creek, passes near the Knox County Horse Park and through several area farms before ending near Parrot Street in Mount Vernon, Ohio.  Watch out for wildlife crossing the trail!

The Heart of Ohio Trail is a part of the larger Ohio to Erie Trail system that when completed will connect Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland. Maintained completely by volunteers, the Heart of Ohio Trail is currently best-suited for hybrid style bikes or mountain bikes.  When the paving is completed, skaters will find a home as well.  A 3-mile horse trail is planned near the Knox County Horse Park on Thayer Road and will run adjacent to the Heart of Ohio Trail.  The future horse trail at the Heart of Ohio Trail will be a wonderful addition and is a significant point of difference between Heart of Ohio Trail and the Kokosing Gap Trail because the Kokosing Gap Trail doesn't allow horses.

Knox County Ohio Real Estate Report

by Sam Miller

The Knox County MLS experienced a slight reduction in home sales of about 10% this past January as compared to a year ago in January of 2010. This is truly outstanding because it means the market may be headed in a more stable and positive direction.  You may be wondering how it can be good news that the market is down by roughly 10% but remember that in early 2010 the housing market was driven by an economic stimulous package and a lot of government subsidy money such as the $8,000 tax credit.  Many media outlets predicted the housing market would be off by as much as much as 40 or 50% but our market outperformed those predictions and barely missed a beat.

Knox County Ohio Housing Market
for January 2011

As of February 1st, 2011, there are currently 303 Knox County residential homes available for sale that are listed in the Knox County MLS. The combined value of all 303 homes that are available and for sale is over 44 million dollar with a combined average listing price is just over $148,000.  The lowest priced available single family residential home that is currently listed for sale in the Knox County MLS is listed for only $15,900 and the highest priced single family home for sale today is listed for $795,000.

Currently we are working off of a 16 month absorption rate based on the January 2011 Knox County home sales and also based on the current inventory of available homes.  This is the ultimate example of how supply and demand and how one impacts the other.  Currently there is a larger supply of available homes than they are monthly sales.  This number of monthsof active inventory will typically reduce in the late spring and summer months because during the peak home selling months we can experience anywhere between a 200% to 300% increase in monthly home sales compared to the early winter months such as January or February.

If you are thinking about buying or selling a home in 2011, give us a call at (740) 397-7800 or send us an email to explore your options and to find out when is the best time for you to make a move.

Ice in Knox County Ohio

by Sam Miller

Knox County and Central Ohio have experienced their first significant ice storm of the year.  Freezing rain started hitting our deck around 11 p.m. last night and it must have continued through most of the night because when I woke up this morning everything was covered in ice.  All of the local public schools are officially closed for the day and from what I saw on the television news channels this morning it looked like the majority of the Central Ohio schools have closed for the day as well.  

There is currently a serve weather alert and a winter storm warning in effect until 7 p.m. Wednesday night according to the Weather Channel.  Today we are expecting what is known as a "Wintry Mix" and freezing rain is expected again this evening.

Knox County Ohio Real Estate Has A New Look

by Sam Miller

We have had a goal to update the design of our knoxcountyohio.com real estate website for the past couple of years and last week we made that goal a reality.  We wanted a faster functioning website that would enable visitors the freedom to view homes in more ways than ever before.  Visitors can now search for listings based on new listings, communities, price ranges, school districts, bank owned, vacant land, commercial listings and they can still view all of our active real estate listings in a single grouping.  We hope you enjoy the new knoxcountyohio.com

Forbes Magazine recently featured Kenyon College in their latest issue as one of "The World's Most Beautiful College Campuses".   The Village of Gambier is truly a gorgeous community with tree lined streets, spectacular Gothic architecture, walking paths and river scenery.  The Gambier community is adjoined by a picturesque landscape of country property and farmland.  Kenyon is one of the nation's finest liberal arts colleges. 

 

As a Knox County resident and real estate professional, it makes me very proud that Kenyon College received this well deserved recognition from Forbes Magazine.  Because of the Forbes article, I am sure others will discover the beauty of the Kenyon College Campus.
