Top Five Marion Transfers in 2017

Marion County Top Five Sales* in 2017

  1. nursing home sold $3 million marion ohio
    The properties at 175 Community Drive in Marion highlighted sales-to-date in the county so far in 2017.

    $3,896,780; 175 Community Drive, Marion; October 24, 2017. The sale of the Community Care Rehabilitation nursing home was by far the largest deal in the county in 2017, but a far cry from the $9 million plus the facility fetched in 2013. The property was purchased by 175 Community Holdings LLC – which lists Providence Health Care CEO Eli Gunzberg as a member – from KND Real Estate 16 LLC.

  2. $3,065,835; 188 America Boulevard, Marion; July 5, 2017. A move that was foreshadowed for months within I-270 when Bob Evans Farms separated it restaurants and frozen foods sections that impacted Marion locally. The local Bob Evans Restaurant – located at State Route 95 just west of the US 23 exit – changed hands “officially” twice in 2017. First transferring in a non-valid sale for $2,379,982 in April and then officially to VEREIT BE Portfolio in July to become part of the VEREIT real estate holdings.
  3. $2,735,000; LaRue Prospect Road, Green Camp; January 13, 2017. The Gerfen Family Farms put together an impressive purchase of five parcels that included roughly 489 acres of land in Green Camp Township.
  4. $1,575,510; 227 Jamesway Road, Marion; November 20, 2017. The Los Angeles, Calif., based CNI THL PROPCO FE LLC purchased the Fairfield Hotel by Marriott in November from Fargo Motels.
  5. $783,195; Prospect Mt. Vernon Road, Prospect; March 17, 2017. Umang and Tracy Nanda purchased two parcels totaling more than 120 acres from

* – Only sales listed “valid” by the Marion County Auditor’s office are included. A valid sale is considered to have been undertaken by two (or more) parties

State of the Marion County Real Estate Market in 2017

marion county price range
Marion County transfers so far in 2017 based on price range. (information courtesy of Marion County Auditor)

Real estate sales showed a nice quantity in 2017 with 2,589 distinct transfers appearing on the Marion County Auditor’s site.

However, Marion County continues to be plagued by sluggish price recovery from the recession. When considered that 92% of the properties transferred were less than $250,000. The largest number of transfers was in the $100 – $49,999 category with 596 properties being exchanged.

There are lots of reasons that the price could be that low – from city lots being exchanged to including sales that are not valid and thus don’t meet the “two separate parties” idea that a valid sale creates.

Shoulder High By The Fourth of July?

Radnor Township Corn Growing Tall

corn growing fast in delaware county
The classic addage “knee high by the fourth of July” has been blown away by several Delaware County fields.

The old farmer’s adage is that corn should be “knee high by the fourth of July.”

If that’s the case, then Delaware County farms could be looking at a bumper crop in 2016. C.G. Boyce Real Estate Co. president and broker Toby Boyce – standing about 6-feet tall – posed for a photograph in Radnor Township with some upstart corn. The stalks were easily shoulder-high on July 5 for this field on Price Road near Hemble Road in rural Radnor, Ohio.

So What Does That Mean For Production?

Well, not much it appears.

Twenty-five years ago the knee high axiom worked very well according to farmer’s stories. However, today’s enhanced technology and improved seed hardiness, the corn can be planted earlier. All of which has led to the expectation that first-planting corn be chest high or taller by the Fourth of July. Though, the axiom is not totally discarded with farmers using it as a benchmark for whether corn that had to be replanted is on track for a fall yield.
