Amber asked that question August 5, 2010.  I was one of 8 people that answered Ambers question.  I answered Ambers question based on the lastest Trendgraphix available at that time, through June 2010.  If you use 7 months and over as a buyers market, Columbus is a buyers market  based on inventory at the end of July 2010, 13616 homes, 11.2 month of inventory based on the current rate of home sales.
