move to marysville: Marysville Ohio Real Estate Market Conditions September 2010 - 09/07/10 10:30 AM
For 2010, statistics for home sales in the Marysville School district offers a mixed bag of news. Historically, from January 1 until September 7 of 2009, stats show that 210 homes were sold with an average list price of $158047, sale price of $151938 and market days of 95. For the same time period this year in 2010, 189 homes have sold, however the average list price was higher at $165324 with a selling price of $160005 and market days of 89. So less homes have sold, but in less time at a better price. It is undetermined as to whether (0 comments)

When it comes to making important, life changing decisions about your home & finances, you need a professional that you can trust to guide you through. Someone you can count on to be there to answer your questions & provide dependable resources to discover and meet your goals.

Marysville, Ohio, May 2010 - Vicki Owens with Andy & Associates, Realtors has earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification. The National Association of REALTORS® offers the SFR certification to REALTORS® who want to help both buyers and sellers navigate these complicated transactions, as demand for professional expertise with distressed sales grows.
According to a recent NAR survey, nearly one-third of all existing homes sold recently were either short sales or foreclosures. For many real estate professionals, short sales and foreclosures are the new "traditional" transaction. (0 comments)
With the market as tough as it has been, I have received yet more calls and emails from people who have had a lot of difficulty with their lease purchase arrangements. It unfortunately seems this always comes after the fact and always reiterates the reason why I always advise against these sort of agreements.
One gal contacted me who was at the end of her 2 year agreement. I spoke to her way back in 2006 when she was contemplating a home purchase. At that time, (0 comments)
Here it is, another holiday season. If your home is or has been on the market this year without an offer, you are not alone. So what does it take to win over that buyer in today's challenging market?

move to marysville: HUDS, Bank Owned & Short Sales, Oh My! - 12/07/08 08:27 AM
First & Foremost you need to know as a home buyer that buying one of these repossessed homes take a great deal of PATIENCE. Unfortunately, banks are not in the "instant gratification" business. We are so used to things happening fast. When an offer is made on one of these homes, it has to pass through MANY hands. The banks are overwhelmed with work with so many foreclosures available for sale. Because they are NOT in the real estate business, many systems have not been streamlined to provide timely answers to home buyers. If you are right for it and do (0 comments)
move to marysville: Short Sale or Not to Short Sale - 12/07/08 07:55 AM
That IS the question. So What Is A "Short Sale" Anyway? A short sale is when the bank agrees to take less than what they are owed on a mortgage and forgive some of the debt in order to avoid foreclosure. The key is "to avoid foreclosure". In this 21st Century market, many home owners that purchased their homes anywhere from 2001-2006 have come to find out that their values declined. VERY disappointing when so many were promised appreciation by super charged sales reps, real estate agents and mortgage lenders. But the best thing to do if you can ride out (0 comments)
