Life is full of the unexpected, sometimes you just have to be watching and listening to catch it! Last night we we were forecasted for our first light frost of the season.  No need to break out the ice scrapers yet (you Floridians and Californians...an ice scraper is a little portable tool you keep in your car to scrape ice off your windshield....oh...let me back up....frost is ice that forms at night when it's cold...okay, let's back up a little more....cold is that temperature about 30 to 40 degrees lower than what you're used to!).  Okay, enough digression....  :) Despite the threat of frost, nothing has told Mother Nature to turn off the blooms yet! Last night we took this shot of our clematis still in full bloom right next to the fallen leaves! We can see the unexpected anywhere, a...

Home sellers know that selling in this market has been challenging to say the least.  Though I see markets improving it is always a good idea to have a plan "B".  There are many good reasons why people would like to sell their homes for example, so they can move up to a larger home, maybe to a different school system, or maybe they're ready to downsize the space but would like to have more bells and whistles.  It is sometimes difficult, not to mention scary to pin down the new home without having the current home sold.  That's where we come in! We're so sure at ERA REAL Solutions that we will sell your home in Greater Cincinnati, that if we do not within the listing term, we will purchase it at the end of the term.  The listing term ranges from 180-270.  This huge benefit allows you to ...

If you are searching for homes for sale in West Chester, Mason, Loveland OH, or any other part of greater Cincinnati, I'm sure you've seen some pretty good deals recently.  Please don't expect these great deals to last for ever and ever. Just like in other recessions these difficult times oppotunities will pass and it will be the early observers that get in while the getting is good.  The buyers that wait until everything is peachy keen will likely pay higher prices for homes as the appreciation will have been well under way.  Also, financing is seemingly relatively cheap compared to many other historical standards and it stands to reason that it will go up when the good times come back. Also, there are many folks that need a place to rent right now.  Maybe you've thought of renting out...

  Be careful if you're looking at new construction homes.  There are builders out there trying to work in transfer fee language that applies to the owner when they sell the home. Basically, when the owner sells the home they would have an extra fee sometimes 1-3% of the purchase price, which would go directly back to the builder.  This fee would be effect for a period of time (I've heard some are up to 99 years), and it goes with the property so the new owner would inherit it, and new owner, and new owner, etc. Supposedly the government loans are looking into it and may prohibit from lending on such properties, which will in effect make the properties less desireable to those looking to get government financing.  Less desirable typically means less sales price. Make sure you read the fi...

A great recent article on buying or renting from the wall street journal.  Seems the author points out it's better to buy if the price of the home is 15 times or less the cost of the rent. The example they used was rent of $10,000 per year, so if you could buy a similar home for $150,000 of less it's smarter to buy (historically speaking). See article: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703561604575282910161870380.html Hopefully this was helpful.  As always, if you need help with anything real estate feel free to find me at www.ISellCincinnati.com or email mike@ISellCincinnati.com or call 513-325-1959.  Also, SEARCH GREATER CINCINNATI AREA MLS HOMES FOR FREE ANYTIME AT www.ISellCincinnati.com.

I was with a soon to be homeowner the other day, and in talking with them about the reasons why they are buying vs. choosing to rent the first thing they mentioned wasn't the typical top three things I hear like 1. possible tax deductions, 2. appreciation, or 3. finding a great deal and have "equity"... it was something that probably use to be the main reason before the huge run up in housing prices, subsequent massive equity positions, and thrill of selling and making a killing became popular.  It was a 'back to the basics" answer. The answer was simple: they can pay $1200 in rent or they can own something nicer for the same price.  So even if in four years they decide to sell they will have had to lose $57,600 in value to be worse off than if they were renting (that math is simply $12...
