12 Places You Can Buy A Newly Built House Around Columbus For Under $250,000

Searching for real estate isn’t just a necessity for prospective homebuyers. It can also be a hobby for people interested in design, architecture, or the market itself.

The housing market in Columbus is booming right now. Inventory for homes has decreased in 2017, and the average cost of a home has gone up. So what do homebuyers do when there are fewer houses to buy, and the ones they can find cost more?

Some buyers opt to buy new builds. Of course, custom homes don’t always come cheap, but there are builders throughout the city building smaller, more affordable homes.
