northern kentucky real estate: How do HOA's work? - 03/16/11 03:13 AM

How do homeowners associations work? Learn everything you can about the homeowners association before you buy into a development governed by one. The association's financial, political and legal conditions are very important to your investment and quality of life.
When run properly, homeowners associations maintain the common grounds and keep civility in the complex. If you follow the rules, the association should not intrude on your privacy or cost you too much in association dues.
Poorly managed associations can drag down property values and make living there difficult for residents. Start by studying the association’s covenants, codes and restrictions, or … (1 comments)

northern kentucky real estate: Condo, Single Family or Apartment? - 01/26/11 04:29 AM
 
What are the differences between condos and single-family homes? Using appreciation as a measure, condominiums in some areas have been as profitable an investment as single-family homes in the past five years. And in some markets, condos appreciated even more, according to some experts.
While single-family homes have been the preferred investment by homebuyers, changing demographics are helping make condos more popular, especially among single homebuyers, empty nesters and first-time buyers in high-priced markets.
Also, the condominium community has worked hard in the last few years to overcome image problems brought on by homeowners association and developer disputes as well … (0 comments)

northern kentucky real estate: So, you want to buy a fixxer-upper? - 01/26/11 04:22 AM
 
Is it smart to even consider a fixer-upper? It depends. Distressed properties or fixer-uppers can be found anywhere, even in wealthier neighborhoods. Such properties are poorly maintained and have a lower market value than other houses in the neighborhood.
Many experts recommend that before you make such an investment, first find the least desirable house in the best neighborhood. Then do the math to see if what it would cost to bring up the value of that property to its full potential market value is within your budget. If you are a novice buyer, it may be wiser to look … (1 comments)

northern kentucky real estate: Buying a Foreclosure in Northern Kentucky - 01/26/11 04:20 AM
Are foreclosures a good investment? A foreclosure property is a home that has been repossessed by the lender because the owners failed to pay the mortgage. Thousands of homes end up in foreclosure every year. Economic conditions affect the number of foreclosures, too. Many people lose their homes due to job loss, credit problems or unexpected expenses.
It is wise to be cautious when considering a foreclosure. Many experts, in fact, advise inexperienced buyers to hire an expert to take them through the process. It is important to have the house thoroughly inspected and to be sure that any liens, undisclosed … (1 comments)

northern kentucky real estate: 2010-2011 Cost vs Value Remodeling Projects - 01/06/11 01:49 AM

 
Not unexpectedly, homeowners are choosing to be more pragmatic with their remodeling choices according to the data in the Remodeling 2010-11 Cost vs. Value Report.  (I'll be using data for the East North Central area even though I'm in KY as my proximity to Cincinnati more closely represents the costs I will incur.)  
Leading the list as the best return on investment is an Attic Bedroom Remodel.  While this bucks the trend of inexpensive fixes, it shows that square footage is desirable feature to add to your property.  Your return is expected to be 71.0%.  Right on par … (1 comments)

northern kentucky real estate: 4% Rates are over - For Good - 01/04/11 02:35 AM
