May 2010 real estate market statistics report for the Brecksville, Ohio community in Northeast Ohio. Absorption Rates and Months Housing Supply These two terms are one piece of the puzzle to help real estate agents, appraisers, home sellers and buyers alike make sense out of the real estate market. This is a little-known, but effective tool, if used in proper context, to help a home seller or buyer understand the market conditions for the home they wish to sell or buy. The easiest way to define these two terms is with an example: Absorption Rates (AR)- The rate at which homes are selling (ie. absorbed), over a specific time period, typically 12 months.  This is beneficial in determining supply and demand trends for the local market.

There are still some great events to be had on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad that runs through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I snapped this photo of a flyer in the park today. Take your bike and only pay $2. The Day Out With Thomas is always a huge hit and it's fun to see the train look like Thomas the Train.

My friend Glen and I continued our 9 mile hike today on the Towpath Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). The first half of the hike was on the Buckeye Trail. The towpath trail is flat, hard packed gravel, about six feet wide and is used by walkers, hikers coming from the Buckeye Trail, bicycle riders, as well as runners. Enjoy!

My friend Glen and I took a 9 mile hike today on both the Buckeye Trail and the Towpath Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). This post will have a few photos of a section of the Buckeye Trail from Vaughn Road down to Boston Mills Road. The old saying: A bad day on the golf course is better than a good day at the office -- substitute hiking on the CVNP trails is always that way, but today was spectacular in the mid-60s, some sun and clouds, and a great day to enjoy one of our nation's national parks. Read the next post on the last half of the hike on the Towpath Trail. Who knows...some type of fungi Shale formations.

The numbers you see below are fairly typical first quarter results. Some of the closed and contingent sales likely went under contract in December and early January. I have been very busy during the first quarter as is the case with many of the agents in my office. I would expect a good increase in the number of transactions in the second quarter. Although the number of transactions will increase, it remains to be seen whether or not there will be a significant increase in closed sales prices. The yellow areas represent an decrease from 4th quarter, the red and increase. Many buyers and sellers are trying to take advantage of the tax credit, which ends on April 30th 2010.

The Echo Hills neighborhood in Brecksville, Ohio, 44141 has lots of hidden treasures that many potential home buyers don't realize when the first drive into this wonderful neighborhood of 303 single-family homes.  Imagine being able to walk out your front door, go swimming, play in the sand at the beach, fishing, go to the playground, all before lunch time, and a car isn't needed!  This is Echo Hills. The original section of Echo Hills (entrance is Echo Hill Drive off Snowville Road) was primarily built in the 1950s-60s.  The second section of Echo Hills was built in the 1970s-80s.  Some of these homes were built by Ryan Homes (1970s) and the other homes were built by Sherwood Construction (1980s).  The newer section has entrances of Deer Run and Old Orchard Drive, both of Snowville Ro...
