They really didn't PLAN to buy a patio home this soon.  They were just looking.  We'll buy next year when we're about ready to retire.  We'll just get a quote on a new patio home from Drees.  We're just gathering information.  They knew I was THE agent to help them with a patio home, whether resale or new.  Like most of my clients, they'd found us online and found us EVERYWHERE they looked.We started by looking at a resale patio home in an adjacent community, and as we talked I knew there was only ONE place that was going to take care of their needs, and that was Heritage at Miami Bluffs.  While most patio home communities naturally skew towards 55+, this is the only DESIGNATED 55+ community in Greater Cincinnati, and the amenity package for the community is second to none.So we set up ...

"I didn't want to buy a FSBO without an agent" a buyer told me today.  He elaborated a bit about concerns with disclosures, title searches and all the details that come along with making sure a home transaction is successfully completed.This buyer recognized that while both the buyer and FSBO owner might all mean well, but when you don't know what you don't know, that makes it easier for things to go wrong.  And let's face it, if you buy or sell a home about once a decade, you REALLY don't have a reason to keep up with the intricacies of exchanging homes.  So the end result, today we finished a condo purchase in Maineville's Miami Bluffs.  It's a community we keep coming back to, with today's condo purchase being the third time in the Adena of Miami Bluffs condo section that we've helpe...

 Maineville's Miami Bluffs is one of those communities we keep coming back to with our buyers, and why not?  Good location, affordable, a variety of floor plans and price ranges, and a great community amenity package, it all adds up to being an attractive place for buyers looking for a low maintenance lifestyle!  We met with new clients on Monday to discuss area low maintenance housing options.  We reviewed the available communities, available homes for sale and had a few possible patio home and ranch condo options, but nothing that totally clicked.But while there weren't any homes in MLS that looked promising (thanks to the LOW, LOW inventory!), there was a for sale by owner in Miami Bluffs' condo section that looked appealing:  almost 2000 sq ft of living space, 2 bedrooms, study, 2 c...

This story starts like many others for our clients.  They lived in Cincinnati years ago, but moved away.  The kids are still here, and then the biggest magnet of them all, grandkids!  So our buyers decided it was time to leave Washington State and find a low maintenance home to call their own.An Internet search for Cincinnati patio homes leads them to us (we're all over page 1 of Google, so finding us isn't a surprise from our viewpoint). A phone call follows, we understand what they want, but we're in holding pattern while they work on selling their current home.  A couple of months later they're under contract and Mrs. Buyer plans a trip and states "I WILL buy a home before I go back!".  And she has carte blanche from her husband.  We do a little pre-visit work reviewing area patio ho...

As Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ community Heritage At Miami Bluffs nears completion there have been some major milestones.  Floorplans have changed.  Type of patio homes and condos have changed too.  The last attached ranch condos went in years ago.  Last year they wrapped up the last of their portico/courtyard homes.The last phase of the community has opened up.And now Drees is down to their last lot that allows a walkout basement!  Located on a cul de sac with heavy woods and a steep dropoff down to the Little Miami River, the lot comes with a premium charge:  $40,000 for the right to build on that lot.In total there are about 20 opportunities left to build a patio home to your specifications, but if you MUST have a walkout basement, you'd better get there fast.  Between the starting base pr...

Despite having a high demand community in Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ community, Heritage At Miami Bluffs, Drees Homes does offer periodic incentives!  Now if you were thinking about last month's $90 gets you a finished lower level rec room and half bath special, I'm afraid you waited too long!But here's the good news, there's a new special for May 2018!  How would you like $12,000 to apply to kitchen upgrades and other options?  That's some significant funds to apply to kitchen counters, cabinets and elsewhere in the home until you use up your $12,000 allowance!Now again, this is a "you need to get going ASAP" kind of offer!  Why?Because unless Drees Homes extends the offer, it's only good for CONTRACTS written in May.  It's not good enough to just swing by, they want to know you're going to...

We started markting this no step, low maintenance living in Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ Community while it was still cold and snowy!  We replaced the outside pictures once the snow melted and continued to aggressively market 1607 Oak Grove Ln in Maineville's Heritage At Miami Bluffs!  This home is THE former model home for Drees Homes portico collection San Marco floor plan, so it comes with ALL the extras!And it doesn't hurt that we've established an excellent working relationship with the community builder's rep.  You can't currently build new in the community for anything less than about $340,000, and Drees Homes has completed all the courtyard homes in the community, so with our price below $300,000, we weren't direct competition with the builder.So buyers coming in that weren't a good fi...

 From half the country away the buyers had been scouting our website pages about Greater Cincinnati patio homes.  One call to us confirmed they wanted to help them find the right home, all they needed to do was get their Washington state home under contract so they could buy here.One community in particular caught their attention, Greater Cincinnati's ONLY designated 55+ community Heritage at Miami Bluffs!  Heritage at Miami Bluffs is still offering new construction, but unless your budget starts in the mid-300s, it's best to stick to resale or have us help you find new construction in another patio home community.In this case, our buyers were able to get their home under contract quickly, so just a few short weeks from initial call, our buyers booked a trip to house hunt.  A day was re...

A fantastic March for Maineville Ohio area home sales.  The highest total for sales since 2010 and the 2nd best median price of ANY month since January 2010.  That's REALLY good!  Homes are selling quickly too, with an average of 2 months, but half are under contract in 10 days or less.  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!

 How would you like to get a lot more house for almost NO extra spending?  Drees Homes is offering a limited time only special in Greater Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ patio home community Heritage At Miami Bluffs.Through at least the end of March 2018, for a paltry $90 extra Drees is offering to finish a rec room and a half bath in the basement.  Now THAT is a fantastic deal!  You're looking at a sizeable increase in living space if you take Drees Homes up on this special.But again, this is a LIMITED TIME offer in more ways than one.  Heritage at Miami Bluffs is rapidly coming to a close. The community is in its final phase, with only 20+ lots left before the entire community is finished.  After that, Drees Homes is NOT planning on another 55+ community in the Greater Cincinnati area.  So that...
