Hot Off the Press! First Half Real Estate Recap for New Albany!

As your New Albany real estate advisers, Tony and I thought you might be interested in how our market is faring this year compared to last year. Inventory is down, days on market are declining and prices are heading upward – especially on the 50+ homes sold in June!

Below are the year to date statistics for the communities in New Albany. Without exception, all neighborhoods have seen 2013 prices rise anywhere from $4/square foot to $15/square foot, depending on the community. The average sales price in New Albany school district rose 9% over the same time last year. The number of homes sold through June is flat with last year but I expect that to see this change when the unprecedented 90 homes currently in contract close by summer’s end.

Why New Albany Golf Courses Are Gaining Attention

New Albany golfingNew Albany Ohio golf courses are setting a new trend that other communities as far away as Seattle are taking note of, according to a recent article I read.

Evidently, golf courses in our area are starting to put a greater emphasis on natural and environmentally-friendly landscaping.

While our Central Ohio golf courses have been recognized for years as being superior courses, this is sure to improve their reputations even more so!

Golfing Community in New Albany, Ohio

The recent Associated Press article I read noted that the New Albany Country Club has begun setting out bird boxes throughout the course.

Country Club officials have also stopped mowing some high grasses around the golf course in an effort to make the landscape a little bit more natural.

Here are some other steps the Country Club has taken to reach its goal:

  • Adding more space to wildlife
  • Cutting back on pesticide use
  • Adding bird boxes

The result of their recent efforts to make the golf course more natural have been quite positive!

For one, the Country Club is saving money on lawn mowing!

Also, the new scenery is attracting new people to the golf course who are interested in seeing local flora and fauna while enjoying a round of golf.

Other Central Ohio golf courses that have taken a similar approach as the New Albany Country Club include:

  • Blacklick Woods in Reynoldsburg
  • Longaberger Golf Club near Nashport

New Albany Country Club’s efforts earned it a certification under an Audubon International program that encourages golf courses to be more environmentally-friendly.

That’s because the higher grass and reduction of pesticides means that fewer pesticides are getting in the water of these courses.

Living in New Albany Ohio’s Golf Communities

The certified sanctuary golf course recognition at the New Albany Country Club has helped foster a sense of pride among golfers who play there, officials said.

If that sounds like the kind of community in which you would like to live permanently, please contact us, Kate & Tony Thomas, today.

We’ll let you know about available New Albany Country Club listings as well as provide you with such valuable resources as:
