Housing Recovery

Rob Sibcy, president of Sibcy Cline Realtors

An interesting article about the housing market appeared in the Enquirer on May 22, 2011 detailing the increases or decreases in median home prices for Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky .

Rob Sibcy, president of Sibcy Cline Realtors®, was quoted in this analysis piece: “Sibcy says he believes 2011 overall will show improvement over 2010 – in spite of an artificial boost in prices and sales helped by the tax credits last year. ‘Slowly, we are coming out of this,’ he says. ‘2012 and 2013 will be much better.'”
