Columbus Ohio real estate

Zillow... where's Cinci?

Hey Zillow where's Cinci?  I am not asking geographically I got that down. I am asking why Zillow does not have Cincinnati information among US metro areas. Just wondering. I am trying to follow Spencer R's instructions for comparing foreclosures to falling home values for Columbus. Cinci being missing should NOT really concern me, yet I went out to dinner Saturday night and had a conversation about Zillow and Cinci being missing....

Zillow's got Columbus!

I live and work in Central Ohio.... Columbus the center of the Buckeye state.

The three biggest cities in Ohio starting with C's sometimes confuse folks from out of state.  Cleveland is up north on Lake Erie, north eastern Ohio. 

Cincinnati.  I learned to spell Cincinnati  when I lived in Dayton, north of Cincinnati.  I think when I lived in northeast Ohio in Akron I would have just doubled both n's and the t to be sure.  That was pretty much before spell check. 

Cinncinnatti makes it longer...  Or maybe it was that I alternated Cincinnati with Cincinatti.

Enuff spelling it's just easier to call it "Cinci."

Cinci is in southwest Ohio, the metro area includes some Indiana and Kentucky population I believe. Is that why Cinci is not on Zillow?

The Pretenders 'My city was gone' was about Akron Ohio. "hey, ho, way to go Ohio"   Zillow has Akron and Dayton among it's Metros... maybe Toledo too?  No Cinci.

Cincinatti is missing from Zillow.  Cleveland gets two Metro areas on Zillow and Cincinnati is gone? 

Zillow where's Cinci?  I like to compare the three biggest cities in Ohio

I am trying to follow Spencer's instructions on this post

What caused the foreclosure crisis: Lax underwriting or falling home values?  and I can't see the other metrics... Spencer refers to either.  Spencers says:

"One tip for you on how to use Zillow data to look at some of this info... Go to the "Local Info" tab on Zillow and type in a city, state, neighborhood or county in the search bar. They click on "home values" on the left side. Click "more metrics" on the left side and they look at the two foreclosure metrics -- "homes foreclosed %" and "foreclosure re-sales". You can then embed the graphs into blog posts."

As you can see in the graph above Ohio cities Metros are affordable in Comparison to US .

I posted a Zillow graph on my site this morning

Central Ohio real estate market news 

comparing Ohio, Columbus and three Central Ohio suburbs, Dublin, Westerville and Worthington, home values, not sale prices, but home values. I want to look at foreclosures! I will try again.

In related news Indiana is gone... Zillow has no info on Indiana either.  If you paid attention above AND know your states, Cincinnati is in the southwest part of Ohio, Cinci borders Indiana and Kentucky.   I tried to compare Ohio to surrounding states and Zillow broke the news to me they don't have info on Indiana either.

"hey, ho, way to go Ohio"

There are states that are not on Zillow.  My thought it is that the Cinci metro area covers three states, one of which does not show up on Zillow, Indiana.  Some Cinci foreclosure info is available on  Zillow, I believe.  City of Cincinnati?  I believe that would all be in Ohio and I could compare city of Columbus with that city but I am looking at the Metro list. 

Not finding fault with Zillows info if that is what "HA HA HA " refers to.

Yup, I was HA HA HA'ing Zillow's omission.  It was an ironic laugh.

I don't think it is a mistake.  There are states where they don't disclose records. I think  it would be useless to compare all of the Columbus metro area to part of the Cinci area.

Gee I was trying to talk to consumers in Ohio about Home Values.  I think if you have a problem with Zillow that belongs on your blog!
