House Hunting? Here’s What $135,000 Buys You In Central Ohio

According to Punxsutawney Phil, it’s almost spring. You know what that means? The real estate market is about to explode. 

That’s not just advice coming from a groundhog either, most realtors would agree. And while the market is still very competitive, that’s not to say that you can’t find a good deal.

Neighborhood: Hilltop

Specs: 3 bedrooms/1.5 bathrooms

Price: $135,000

What we love: The outdoor living space, coupled with the partially finished basement, means there’s plenty of room for your family to spread out. Personally, I feel like the Hilltop has a bad rap, though that seems to be slowly changing. Now’s the perfect time to get your foot in the door, before property values spike.
