Prime Cincinnati, known for the city’s best steaks and seafood, now has a new special bourbon… hand selected, and now exclusively featured!!

Next door to Prime Cincinnati, Street City now has something Unexpected to offer…an exclusive club where elegance and bourbon are at the heart of the experience. Hosted by the owners of Prime Cincinnati, located in the Central Business district of Cincinnati, has been reimagined into your new favorite gathering spot. Enter the doors and find the expected façade of Street City, but step further in and you’ll find a hidden gem in their new room. City and arts-inspired murals line the walls, a beautifully framed large screen centers the room next to a stage and to top it off, there is a bourbon display filled with sparkling bottles exhibited to entice.

 Set for daytime, the room offers a great option to gather in an excellent setting for a business lunch.  Dinner is filled with theater goers as they indulge in a prix fixe menu that is a perfect preview to the show. Especially when the Aronoff is just a hop across the street, the Taft theater is a block behind, and the stadiums are three blocks south. Above and beyond these experiences is something Unexpected.

Real Estate Outlook: Is a Cool-down Coming?

The Greater Cincinnati real estate market is one of the hottest in the country. The region has an unusual combination of consistently high home values, low cost of living, the fastest growing economy in the Midwest, and a population on the rise. Any one of these factors alone would influence the market. In combination, they make for a dynamic real estate scene that outpaces other U.S. cities.

“We’ve seen homes going under contract in a day, and even before listing,” says Megan Stacey of The Megan Stacey Group at Coldwell Banker Realty. “Unprecedented buyer demand has been the driving market force in 2022.” Stacey notes that homes stayed on the market a median three days in May before going under contract, while active inventory was at just 1,691 homes.

As Stacey and her team move into the second half of 2022, a trend they’re tracking is the rising number of new listings. New listings have been slowly climbing since the start of the year—from 1,761 homes coming on the market in January to 2,921 homes in May. At the same time, rising mortgage rates have caused some buyers to put their purchasing plans on pause. Increased listings and buyer burnout could suggest a market cool-down on the horizon.

Stacey is advising her clients who are contemplating a sale to move forward. “The trend of homes selling in days with manic bidding wars may be waning, but may not be over for sellers who act quickly,” says Stacey. She encourages her buyer clients to stick with it. “We’re working closely with buyers to reassess their budgets, and to find the homes they want at prices they can afford in the neighborhoods they love.”
