Officials estimate there are 30 to 40 thousand undocumented immigrants in Central Ohio who could be spared deportation under President Obama’s reform order.
Ohio Home Sales Jumped Ten Percent In February
The Ohio Association of Realtors says Ohio homes sales jumped more than 10 percent last month.
The housing market posted gains in activity for the 20th consecutive month in February â€“ thatâ€™s the longest stretch of uninterrupted growth in more than a decade. In the Columbus area sales were up 20 percent compared to last February.
But Ohio Association of Realtors’ President Thomas Williams says the jump in sales has decreased inventories.
â€œIn certain areas I think itâ€™s still pretty good, but in certain prices ranges and certain locations inventories are still low.â€
Williams is hopeful inventories will boost when more sellers decide to enter the improving market.
