There's one community we keep coming back to with our buyers.  As Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ community, Heritage At Miami Bluffs has an appeal unlike any other community! So last year when another potential patio home buyer contacted us, we worked together to match her needs up with the best choices for a new construction patio home.  The final decision came down to two patio home communities:  one with a more affordable patio home, but with significantly less social offerings, or Heritage At Miami Bluffs.Ultimately the overall community offerings of Heritage At Miami Bluffs won out.  Final selections were made the building process rapidly progressed.Last week we met for the final orientation with the builder.  A few minor things to correct before closing, but overall the home was looking gr...

Cincinnati's ONLY true 55+ community is Heritage At Miami Bluffs.  While there are plenty of patio home communities and other low maintenance living options in Cincinnati, what makes Heritage At Miami Bluffs unique?   The primary difference is Heritage At Miami Bluff's meets federal requirements to be designated a 55+ community.  In a nutshell, it's mandatory that a significant majority of residents must be 55 or over in age.  The community also has time restrictions on how long underage visitors can stay in the community.  This is one case in housing where it's approved to discriminate based on age.While other Cincinnati patio home communities skew older in age for owners, if a 28 year old young engineer wants to buy a patio home because he'd rather focus on work and personal time and ...

Cincinnati's ONLY true 55+ community  Heritage At Miami Bluffs is in the FINAL phase of the FINAL phase.  Thanks to someone voiding their contract, there's a bonus chance to lay claim to a spot in what many consider to be THE BEST Cincinnati patio home community!  We've had many buyers agree over the years and whether building new or buying a resale, they've claimed Heritage At Miami Bluffs as their home!If you want a new construction patio home in Heritage At Miami Bluffs, there are currently (as of April 5, 2019) just TEN spots left.  Drees is building 5 market homes, and there are five lots left also.  Considering the size of the community, 10 spots isn't many.  Add in the warm weather lately and we get the return of the snowbirds and a bit more competition to call this community hom...

If you thought Maineville's December numbers for home sales were low, Maineville answered with a "Hold my beer!" in January!  With only 14 completed sales it was ALMOST a 50% drop in sales from one month to the next.  AND average sales priced dropped significantly.  HOWEVER, it's just a temporary pothole because better things are coming as the 46 homes under contract indicates.  And prices are easily moved with low volume, so expect a recovery there too.  Stick with us for the details right after the stats section further down this post when we get into the analysis of the Maineville/Hamilton Township area home sales.We offer links at the bottom of the post to search Cincinnati MLS listed Maineville Ohio homes for sale, and if you want specifics for What Is My Maineville Ohio Home Worth...

 The clock is ticking fast at Heritage At Miami Bluffs, Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ community.  You want knew?  There are ONLY 5 lots left to build a home exactly as you want it!  Add in the four market homes Drees is building and you're down to 9 total opportunities to have a new home in Heritage At Miami Bluffs.  We keep in regular contact with the builder's rep for the latest in availability and the number dropped to five lots after another buyer signed a contract last night.When you consider the unique community offerings, there's a LOT to love about Heritage At Miami Bluffs.  A VERY active social scene for those that want it, a HUGE clubhouse, pools, access to the Little Miami River Bike Trail, etc., there really is not another community like it in Greater Cincinnati.  And what makes it ...

Since there's only ONE designated 55+ community in Cincinnati, we can focus on Maineville's 55+ community Heritage at Miami Bluffs to answer your question!  Heritage at Miami Bluffs is ALMOST completely built, with Drees Homes down to single digits for patio homes left to build.    There are three distinct types of homes in Heritage at Miami Bluffs:1.  Attached ranch condos that typically sell for under $200,000.  They tend to be in the 1000-1200 sq ft range with some a bit larger. Drees finished building the last of these a few years ago.2. Courtyard homes that are a special version of patio homes.  They're longer and closer together and feature a courtyard, thus the name.  These homes will typically be around 1600 sq ft and sell in mid to upper $200,000s.  Drees finished the last of t...

 There's not much time left to claim one of the LAST remaining new construction homes in Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ community Heritage At Miami Bluffs.  A conversation with the builder's rep this week confirmed she was down to 8 spots unclaimed and a couple of strong possibilities to claim 2 of those 8.  After building hundreds and hundreds of homes in Heritage At Miami Bluffs, Drees Homes is about ready to wrap it up.  The model home has been sold for months and we really don't anticipate those last 8 lots to last long.  Heritage At Miami Bluffs is just too good to pass up for those wanting a retirement community with a VERY active social life.  Those dozens of special interest clubs coupled with the 9000+ sq ft community center make for a unique opportunity. And what makes it even more imp...

We're continuing the slower part of the sales year.  It's typical to see fewer homes sold this time of year, fewer under contract and more homes available for sale as buyer demand slows a bit.  What was unexpected was the shift upwards in price as 1/3 of the homes sold were $300,000 or more in price.   Stick with us for the details right after the stats section further down this post when we get into the analysis of the Maineville/Hamilton Township area home sales.We offer links at the bottom of the post to search Cincinnati MLS listed Maineville Ohio homes for sale, and if you want specifics for What Is My Maineville Ohio Home Worth?, please click that link and fill out the form.  We'll get back to you shortly with the latest info that applies to YOUR home!

  Cincinnati has only one true 55+ community, Heritiage At Miami Bluffs.  Drees Homes has done a great job of providing a VERY appealing community.  Hundreds of patio homes and attached ranch condos coupled with an active social live has been really appealing to many of our buyers.Today, lot 345 was claimed by one of our buyers.  She's set to retire next year and her mother will be moving in also, so having a low maintenance lifestyle was critical.  It didn't take long with our help to narrow down to TWO great choices for communities, and ultimately Heritage At Miami Bluffs' total package of home and social life beat the other builder's patio home community.Drees Homes had recently added two new patio home floor plans and the Sarasota offered the best floor plan.  The Sarasota plan offe...

The clock is ticking and Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ community Heritage At Miami Bluffs is going to be out of new construction patio homes in the near future.  The number of unsold sites is now in the teens and after that, there won't be any more.Keeping in mind that most patio home buyers buy with the intent of that patio home being their LAST home, resale offering can be scarce.I've LITERALLY been targeting certain types of homes in this community for specific buyers for year.  Want the largest style attached ranch condo?  Be ready to wait.  Want a specific floor plan or feature?  That might be a long wait too!So the only option that controls your wait time is contracting to build with Drees Homes your new patio home.  Now if your budget is less than $350,000, you're not going to get brand ...
