I am working with a few buyers in and around the $75,000 mark in the Clermont County Ohio area.  As new homes come up on the market under this price range the good ones are quickly offered on by multiple parties.  Is this the new low waterline mark?  Example:  I put in an offer on a home in Amelia Ohio priced at $40,000 last week.  Shortly after getting a counter from the bank, which we accepted, the bank came back with the famous "highest and best."  I guess they must have received many more offers over asking price like ours.  A … (0 comments)

I have been bringing my 2 boys to the School of Little Fish on Old 28 in Miami Township, Clermont County Ohio, (Milford area of Greater Cincinnati East) for about 9 months now and have been very pleased with their progress.

derek tye: Greater Cincinnati Business Review- Central Repair Service - 03/20/09 09:16 AM
It isn't everyday that you get to meet a business owner that takes the time to sit down and discuss business and life in general with you at your first meeting.  I had the opportunity to meet the owner of Central Repair Service of Cincinnati Ohio, Garrett Slone.  The first time I was exposed to this business was when I needed a new condenser replaced on my refrigerator in my garage.  The service person was on time, replaced what was needed and left within one hour. 
I heard of them later on the radio on a local Cincinnati Ohio radio station playing … (0 comments)

Saturday our Southern Ohio Association of Realtors presented its Elite Club Awards to the Realtor members of the association.  The award ceremony looked more like the Oscars than a traditional Realtor banquet.  The red carpet was out, a camera crew was in place and everyone was dressed in their best attire.  
The location was the Oasis Golf and Conference Centerin Loveland, Ohio, Clermont County.  The attendees came from all over the Greater Cincinnati Ohio area including Hamilton County, Brown County, Warren County and Butler County.  Mainly the Realtors attending this board were concentrated from Milford, Loveland, Batavia, Amelia, Eastgate, Anderson, Mt. … (2 comments)

derek tye: Money saving tips for residents in the Greater Cincinnati Area - 03/17/09 01:37 PM
I have been accumulating some money saving tips for a while and thought I would write them down here:

1. Buy a coupon book.  My favorite ones for this area are the Zone Book, the Buy It In Clermont Book, Buy it in Milford book and the Entertainment Book. 
2. Pick up a mailer:  My favorite of these are Val Pak, Reach Magazine and Super Shopper.
3. Kids eat free night at Skyline Chili: Can't beat that for the kids on Wednesday night.  We frequent the one in Miami Township on St Rt 28.

derek tye: The real bottom of the housing market in Greater Cincinnati Ohio? - 03/12/09 05:04 AM
In my last blog (yesterday) I took some statistics from our last sales meeting at Keller Williams and explained that we may have actually hit a real bottom in house prices in January of 2009.  Well today, while scanning the Yahoo news I clicked on their real estate section to see what the latest news there was.  I was pleased to see the same chart that I reported on yesterday but this time taken from Zillow and the local auditors sites versus the Greater Cincinnati MLS system.  For fear of plagiarism or any copyright law infringement I don't want to copy … (0 comments)

derek tye: Feedback on any successful short sale "saviors?" - 03/06/09 04:17 AM
Many of my customers in this market (Cincinnati, Ohio) are getting letters and postcards from both lenders and investors offering to keep them from going into foreclosure.  There are two basic strategies that I am seeing:
1. The lender refinances the loan either through a loan modification or using some of the equity in the home.
2.  The investor offers to purchase the home by entering into an option contract first and negotiating directly with the bank who holds the note. 
Process two is what this blog is about.  Has anyone seen any success from any of these investment companies?  One … (4 comments)

I was driving down Glen Este Withamsville Road in Clermont County this morning and had the urge for a Carmel Latte.  After considering my options (Starbucks or Panera Bread) I stumbled across a new coffee shop right in front of the Kennedy's Landing Apartments and across the street from Chipolte.  The shop looked cute from the outside so I stopped in.

As I entered, I heard some pleasant inspirational music that I recognized as "Third Day".  There was also some antiques and other merchandise sharing the space with comfortable looking tables and chairs.  It smelled of freshly steamed milk, hot … (0 comments)

derek tye: Investment Property Update - 02/27/09 07:25 AM
I just attended an interesting seminar yesterday outlining the new factors influencing commercial real estate for 2009.  The most interesting information was on the rate of decline in pricing that sellers have been forced to comply with.  Most areas around the country have seen 10-20% declines in sales volume and sale prices.  Fortunately for some sellers, the apartment market has not been as dramatically affected.  In Cincinnati, we have not seen very dramatic sale price drops.  I have negotiated out a few deals in the last two months that have seen discounts off the list price around 8%.  Maybe it is … (0 comments)

derek tye: Housing market with respect to new housing starts.... - 02/26/09 02:43 AM
Here is the latest news on the housing market from Yahoo news and the AP today.  New home sales are not just important to the builders but to all the sub-contractors and suppliers that depend on that income.  The only good news out of this sad news is that fewer new homes built will result in less inventory out there to try and sell through.  The number of new housing starts also reflects how confident both consumers and builders are with the economy's future and with this news it appears that both groups are far from confident.  Hopefully we will see the … (0 comments)

I have noticed an up tic in calls to our office and requested showings since last week.  This week our main website www.CincyOhioHomes.comhas increased in the number of site visits by about 10% from last week.  This week we had showings on properties in Loveland, Goshen, Eastgate, Batavia, Maineville and showed buyers through some investment property around the area.  We had one closing in Goshen and had a home in Eastgate go under contract today (Clermont County).  In addition, we received two calls for listing appointments.  Overall, I am very excited to see the activity pick up.

Today my sellers closed on a home they owned on Telford Farm Lane.  The house was a real bargain for the buyers at $350,000.  We had backup interest on the home so the sellers weren't too nervous. The house marks the first resale in Telford Farm.  This development is fairly new and has about four lots still for sale.  The home prices range from $300,000 to around $400,000.  The school district is Goshen Local and the county is Clermont County Ohio.  Hopefull we will have other sales here soon.  We still have active listings in Loveland to the north, Batavia to … (0 comments)
