Fastest Growing Counties Surrounding Columbus, Ohio
People involved in central Ohio real estate or who want to be involved soon should concentrate on something other than Columbus. Columbus is a major metropolitan area but does not have all the best bargains regarding property. Counties surrounding Columbus have some opportunities for you, whether you are a buyer, seller, or investor. It is worth your while to get acquainted with the territory. Here are the fastest-growing counties around Columbus.
- Franklin County
Franklin County has more than 1.3 million residents and rural and metropolitan landscapes. Residents can find something for everyone, including museums, historical attractions, an amazing park system, and various recreational activities. Franklin County is a big city environment with a small-town attitude. People who live here have a powerful sense of community.
- Delaware County
The population of Delaware County has increased by 5.4% in the last few years. It is the fastest-growing county in the Buckeye state. This is an excellent area for real estate investing. Many people want to buy a home here, but there are also quite a few looking to invest in properties to buy, fix up and sell, rent, or resell when the opportunity arises. The real estate market here has all types of people, from first-time homebuyers to sharp real estate investors. That is the way it is going to be for years to come.
- Union County
It is a rural county that has grown by 4.7% since 2010. Union County has a reputation for competitive pricing and an excellent range of properties available on the market. Anyone who wants to sell will benefit from the high property values and access to potential buyers. Union County started its growth spurt when Honda located its first American plant in Marysville and has never looked back.
- Licking County
Licking County gained much national attention when Intel announced it would build a $20 billion chip-manufacturing plant there. The county was already experiencing significant growth. With the announcement of this manufacturing facility, you can only imagine what that will do for the real estate market in this beautiful piece of Ohio. There will be many people looking to buy and invest in Licking County, and those who sell their property stand to make a lovely profit once Intel goes into operation.
