patio homes: Mason Ohio Luxury Home New Construction In Kensington Community - 11/29/17 04:46 PM

There's more new construction coming to Deerfield Township and as seems to be the standard for the Mason area, it's luxury  custom building being offered in the new Kensington community.
Key facts about Kensignton:
1.  Four custom home builders to include Walker and Classic Living.  Also Fischer Homes will be building selected homes from their Masterpiece selection AND lifestyle homes (aka as patio homes)
2.  Lot sizes of 1/2 to 1 acre
3.  Prices are as you'd expect for a luxury community.  Lots cost $180k and up, so expect finished homes to be in the $750,000 and up range for the true custom homes.   The … (1 comments)

patio homes: So You Think A Real Estate Agent Is A Commodity? - 11/25/17 07:40 PM

Yesterday my phone rang and I couldn't pick up or check the voice message for a few minutes. It happens.  I'm with another client, at church, already on the phone or in the middle of watching the Army-Navy football game, I'm can't be available ALL the time!
But I returned the call within about 10 minutes.  And it was already too late.  They'd already spoken to another agent.
Now that tells me a couple of things.
1.  My work on the Internet did its job, they found me.
2.  While they found me, they didn't see a particular need to wait any length of time … (4 comments)

patio homes: Why Don't You Blog About THAT Cincinnati Patio Home Community? - 11/18/17 04:28 PM

If you're searching Cincinnati patio homes for sale you've probably found us on one of our sites and our pages and pages of information about Cincinnati patio homes.  But you MIGHT know some information about a patio home community and find out we've NEVER published any information on that community?  Why the gap?
Chances are strong it's NOT because we don't know about them, but rather there's a purpose to our omission!
We don't publish ALL communities because we keep SOME communities unhighlighted.  The information about those "hidden" Cincinnati patio home communities is reserved for patio home buyers that specifically hire us to … (3 comments)

Bel Haven won't be a small patio home community, with close to 100 … (1 comments)

patio homes: New Construction Patio Homes South Lebanon Ohio by Monarch Homes - 10/15/17 04:26 PM

If you're searching Cincinnati new construction patio homes for sale it might be easy to miss a small community in South Lebanon with a mix of new construction patio homes and attached ranch condos.
Monarch Homes is a smaller builder, but that can be a perk for you!  Ask a larger patio home builder to move a wall or switch a door location?  That's probably going to be a "no, we can't do that". 
On the other hand, if you have us represent you with Monarch Homes you'll find that while their quantity of floor plans might be limited, what they can … (0 comments)

patio homes: Is Now The Time To Downsize My Home? - 09/08/17 07:46 PM

Quite a few of our Cincinnati patio home buyers are making a tough decision.  Is NOW the time to downsize their home?  Often, they've lived in their current home for decades.  It's comfortable.  They know where everything is, they've known the neighbors forever, but taking care of that home is getting tougher.
Should they just do some remodeling and age in place?  Or is it just TOO MUCH?  Too much home.  Too much lawncare to keep up to their standards.  Just too much to keep up with, and there's that desire to travel on short notice to see the sites or go … (1 comments)

patio homes: Cincinnati New Construction Patio Homes With Wooded Lots - 09/02/17 11:47 AM

We specialize in greater Cincinnati patio homes and what we rarely see is the opportunity for new construction patio homes with wooded lots.  Most often new construction patio homes are on cleared land with a scarcity of mature trees.
Add in a cul de sac street and quick access to I-75 for easy commuting to Dayton or Cincinnati and these patio homes are even more appealing!
And that's not all, these homes are built by a major builder as part of an established community, so the pool and other amenities are already in place.  And since these patio homes are built on a … (1 comments)

patio homes: Soraya Farms in Clearcreek Township Ohio Patio Home Update - 07/23/17 04:24 PM

We were recently out at Soraya Farms with buyers and the patio home section is on the home stretch, with only 4 lots left to build from scratch!  Soraya Farms is located in Clearcreek Township on the west side of State Route 48 just below the northern edge of the Warren County line (near Village Rental).  To further complicate things, Soraya Farms is a Centerville mailing address with Springboro Schools, so you've got quite the mix of addresses!
Soraya Farms is a Design Homes builder Planned Urban Development (PUD), so financing is easier than a regular condo community.  The community offers … (0 comments)

patio homes: Cincinnati's 55+ Community Offers A Variety Of Living Choices! - 06/29/17 07:17 PM

There's only one true 55+ Active Adult Community in Cincinnati and it's Maineville's Heritage at Miami Bluffs.  This community is entering its final phases as Drees Homes is just one home away from completing another segment of building.

Drees Homes is the exclusive builder for Heritage at Miami Bluffs and while they've always offered patio homes in various sizes and floor plans, they've also offered two other styles of homes:

patio homes: Happy Buyers In A Cincinnati New Construction Patio Home - 06/14/17 08:14 PM
 
Monday we got to participate in one of our favorite activities:  completing the home finding journey with another set of buyers and watch them get the keys to their new home.
In this case it was literally a new home, a Fischer Homes new construction patio home in Hamilton Township's Miami Bluffs community!  And this wasn't a case of going straight to the builder, but instead the culmination of a journey.  Like most of our patio home buyers, it's not just a matter of ONLY wanting a patio home, but of finding that "just right" home that fits their needs. 
That's where … (0 comments)

patio homes: Are Cincinnati Builders Meeting Low Maintenance Living Demand? - 05/29/17 03:51 PM

We work with a lot of buyers seeking a low maintenance living lifestyle in Greater Cincinnati.  Whether they're looking for a condo or a patio home, their search often includes considering new construction.  Are Cincinnati builders meeting the needs of these buyers?

 
The answer is "It depends". 
It depends on where the buyers want to live.
It depends on the buyer's budget.
It depends on what amenities a buyer wants.
For instance, if a buyer wants a true 55+ active adult living community, there's only one Cincinnati builder offering that option.  That means if you want a 55+ community, you've got to be willing to … (1 comments)

patio homes: My Specialist Wasn't Special Enough - 04/13/17 04:44 PM

When I need something medical I start with my Primary Care Physician.  He can take care of my general medical needs but there are things he doesn't have the expertise to handle so he sends me to a specialist.  A doctor that specializes in knee joints or a cardiologist (yeah, it's been THAT kind of year) might be just the ticket...or not.  Because as I've found sometimes the specialist isn't specialized enough and what is REALLY needed is a true expert on a particular issue. 
Now the same type of issue might apply to buying or selling a home in Ohio.  … (13 comments)

patio homes: Discounted Luxury Cincinnati Patio Homes For Sale! - 03/27/17 04:18 PM

It's not often you can get a HUGE price break on a Cincinnati new construction patio home,  but Brookstone Homes Parkland Meadows community in Symmes Township is on sale right now!!!!
Why the big price break?  When a builder is ready to finish up a community they want to wrap it up and put their focus elsewhere!  So rather than wait for the just right buyer to come along for the LAST lot in the community they'll build a home that is the most popular style for the community and put an appealing price tag on it!  This Shawnee floor plan is … (4 comments)

patio homes: Want A Cincinnati Patio Home? Blink And You Might Miss It! - 02/24/17 01:24 PM

Depending on your desires for a Cincinnati patio home, the selection might be VERY, VERY limited.  It might even be zero!
While patio homes make the perfect home choice for many of our buyers, there are a few things that can put a kink in a successful patio home search:
A limited location for availabilty.  Most Cincinnati communities will either have no patio homes, or maybe 4-5 on the absolute high side.  If a buyer has very specific needs for where they want to live, the options may be scant. While new construction patio homes are readily available in a number of … (3 comments)

patio homes: We Love Watching Our Buyers' Cincinnati Patio Homes Be Built! - 02/23/17 04:08 PM
Working with Cincinnati patio home buyers is one of my favorite parts of being a real estate agent!  Some buyers buy "used" homes and others go for new construction patio homes!  There are plenty of builders in the Greater Cincinnati area offering new patio homes, but it's not always obvious where to find them if you don't have an agent in the know!  And THAT is where we come in!  Since our specialty is Greater Cincinnati patio homes, it's critical that we keep up on the latest offerings!  And the other part you might not realize is we do hold some … (2 comments)

patio homes: Are There Any Cincinnati Patio Homes For Rent? - 01/25/17 02:01 PM

Searching for Cincinnati patio homes for rent? 
We'll admit that it's not easy to find them!  Our experience has been that patio home owners rarely offer them up for rent.
Why are they so hard to find? 
First and foremost, Cincinnati patio homes are most often someone's last home, so they're STAYING there!  While they might head for warmer climes during the colder months, chances are they're not going to risk opening their homes to tenants while they're gone.
Secondly, the patio home segment isn't a HUGE number of the overall Cincinnati housing market. 
Thirdly, and this isn't true about only patio homes, but … (2 comments)

patio homes: Miami Bluffs New Construction Patio Home Spring Sale 2017! - 01/16/17 03:53 PM
Competition for Greater Cincinnati new construction patio homes is stronger on the Cincinnati side of the Ohio River than it is in Northern Kentucky.  While Northern Kentucky offers a number of new construction patio home communities, if you want the largest choice of communities in Greater Cincinnati, you're heading to Ohio!
And the benefit of that competition for our patio home buyers is as builder vie for your dollars, they'll sometimes offer specials to encourage you as the buyer to pick THEM over the other options in the area.
That's the case with Fischer Homes and their Miami Bluffs patio homes section in … (2 comments)
