This weekend I drove by Franklin Township's Renaissance community to check the status on our buyer's new construction patio home.  Fischer Homes almost has it done, with closing scheduled for next month!And while I was there I noticed the street had been extended!  What started as just a small section of patio homes in Renaissance is growing, with an additional 17 patio home sites being added to the community!Right now Fischer Homes is doing the Santa Claus thing, they're making a list of interested buyers!  Actual orders and contracts are expected to start in November.You can still expect a good selection of floor plans and for prices to be in the mid $200s and up through about $400,000.  As new construction patio homes go in Greater Cincinnati, these are some of the more affordable.  ...

It may not look like much today, just some scraped dirt with some trees still waiting to leaf out!  But in 4-5 months our buyers will have a newly built Fischer Homes' patio home to call home.Fischer Homes has a small section of patio homes in Franklin Township's Renaissance community and if your agent doesn't have a specialty in patio homes there's a good chance you as a buyer would never hear about this great place to enjoy some maintenance free living!  But our buyers knew ALL their options before deciding to make Renaissance their new home.Renaissance is a pool community and located close to the SR122/I-75 interchange, so commuting to Dayton or Cincinnati is viable!  Most of the regular homes in Renaissance cost more than the patio home section, so there's some price protection for ...

We love working with past clients again, and this was the second time we've sold a home in the Rolling Meadows for these sellers.  We're in tune with local market performance and knew that we could push the boundary in pricing for this immaculate ranch home.  A lack of inventory, an affordable starter home price, nice updates made by the sellers, 55 Green Knoll had all the ingredients to whip up a quick sale!And so it did!  In just a handful of days after market introduction we had a contract that worked for all parties.  A few inspection repairs later and we were on track to close June 30th.  Closing happened on schedule and everyone was happy for a smooth transaction.   Key features of  55 Green Knoll Dr:  Ranch style, three bedrooms, two full baths, two car garage The master bedroom ...

 When there's a shortage of homes available in your market, assuming you have time to wait to see a home can cost you an opportunity to make what might have been the JUST RIGHT home YOURS!That's the story with our most recent listing in Franklin's Rolling Meadows community!  Fresh on the market mid-week, this home at 55 Green Knoll Drive didn't even last past the weekend before having an accepted contract!  And the showings that were scheduled for Monday will have to settle for back-up status!  The sellers of this home are past clients so they had confidence that we could sell this home (as we had their original home just a few doors down in the same community years ago!).Key features of  55 Green Knoll Dr:  Ranch style, three bedrooms, two full baths, two car garage The master bedroom ...

Franklin Ohio is a small city located in Warren County, south of Dayton and north of Cincinnati. For real estate purposes, many agents place their listings for Franklin in two MLS systems. However, due to Franklin being located in closer proximity to Dayton, a lot of Realtors place their Franklin properties in the Dayton MLS only.It's a shame, there are great Franklin real estate listings on the Cincinnati MLS too. This can cause problems for buyers or sellers that are looking for the best exposure to the homes being sold. Personally, I place my listings in both MLS systems in order to maximize the exposure for my listings.I actually prefer the Cincinnati MLS over Dayton's, and our real estate website is powered by the Cincy MLS.
