Mason Ohio 45040 Single Family Home Residential Market Report August 2012 How did August treat the Mason Ohio single family home real estate market?  Pretty well!  Volumes were up significantly, although average and median prices dropped slightly due to a drop off in luxury home purchases.  Mason continues to be the most in demand living destination in Warren County.  Mason is home to many professionals and upper management and as such is more resistant to market changes than other market segments, and also the first to recover.  Stay with us for the full details.  We've covered Mason condos in our Mason Ohio 45040 Condo Market Report August 2012.  All data is derived from the Cincinnati MLS system and involves only Mason homes sold with  REALTOR® involvement and entered in MLS.

Is It Too Late To Sell My Mason Ohio Home This Year? So Mason schools are back in session and the kids have gotten almost a week in.  High school football has kicked off.  Kings Island is now open only on the weekend.  We're posting about things like Country Applefest, Riverfest this weekend and other end of summer type events. So you're probably thinking, "Shoot, I've missed my chance to sell my home this year!  Should I just wait for spring??". And you're probably going to think when we say "NO!  Don't wait!!" that of course we're going to say that, right??  You're REALTORS(R), of COURSE you want more homes to sell.  And our response to that is "Yes and no".  Could we use more homes to list in Mason?  You bet!!  Mason homes sell, and usually quickly if priced and marketed right!  And ...

A Blogger's Holiday! Yesterday was a fun day, but even then, the blogger's brain never really turns off the "hmmmm, what about THIS as a topic?" mindset.  I had a ticket to go to our big local amusement park Kings Island.  LOTS of roller coasters (which I love), along with other entertainment and rides, and even a large water park if so inclined (not).  Kings Island is a frequent topic for our localism posts, but since it's been a number of years since we've been, we've always been dependent upon their website Media section for pictures and graphics.  NOT our preferred method of having photos for our blog posts at all. So yesterday while having fun, there was still the blogger at work, snapping pictures during the morning visit (a couple of hours right after the park opened before headi...

Mason Fields Community Of Mason Ohio 45040 Mason Fields offers spacious homes, great location (immediately around the corner from the I-71 Western Row interchange), top rated Mason Schools and quite a bit more! Commuting to Cincinnati could hardly get much easier with this nearby highway interchange. And by the way, if you work at Luxottica, you're basically next door!  That's good and bad, SHORT commute, but if they have an emergency and need someone to come in, guess who's getting the call?  You might want to keep your home address on the down low! Now also close by is extensive dining, shopping and entertainment options.  Ride the coasters at Kings Island which is just the other side of I-71 and even enjoy the nightly fireworks during the season.  Hey, it must be 10 p.m. if I hear BO...
