HOW'S THE MARKET & WHAT'S FOR SALE?
Bexley's real estate market is similar to that of areas like Upper Arlington where we see a lot of older, unique homes with character that, on average, are priced higher than some of the other surrounding areas. This makes it difficult for younger buyers or mid-range buyers to find what they're looking for. However, if Bexley is your choice of where to live, and you are patient enough to find the right home within your price range, you should be able to make it happen. You just may be competing with multiple buyers for the same house, so make sure you are well-represented by an expert Realtor with strong negotiation skills.
With that being said, here's a quick look at what's available FOR SALE in the area right now:
