buyers: How important is knowing your "why" in the world? Introspective - 10/24/16 12:28 AM
Everything that is important to me, I need to define my why for why I do what I do and why it's important to me. Without knowing your "why" you do not know your purpose or have a belief that inspires you enough to continue when it gets tough to.  At times it is unclear what your purpose is because you limit yourself with what you think the expectation should be apposed to what you actually feel it should be.  In order to find true purpose you need to feel it and not think it.     Everyday you make a choice … (6 comments)

buyers: Ohio and Solon Real Estate - Lakes - Tow Path - Hawthorne Parkway - 10/19/16 07:07 AM
Living in Solon and working as a Realtor here brings some added bonuses to my day, especially in fall.   Being able to take a break and walk a mile up the road to Hawthorne Parkway makes for some beautiful nature walks to clear the mind and re-energize the spirit.  This Picture was taken today at an area in Solon called Shadow Lake.   It's a great little spot to escape to,  always a beautiful view, plenty of picnic tables, a few nearby trails and an area to go fishing in.  
Shadow Lake is one of 1565 lakes in Ohio and is 3.74 acres of … (8 comments)

buyers: Mortgage Credit Certificate - First Time Home Buyers - Tips - 10/07/16 01:07 AM
First Time Home-Buyers
$2000.00/year tax credit
Did you know when buying a house in the state of OHIO for the first time, using a lender working with OFHA products you could receive a $2000.00/year maximum federal income tax credit with a MCC?
Do you know you CANNOT ask for this after the loan has been processed?
Did you know this can be coupled with other OHFA products like the Grants for Grads, military veterans program, and sometimes available for those who buy homes in targeted census tracts; not a first-time home buyer?
"What is a MCC," you ask?

buyers: Pre-qualified vs Pre-approved - do you know the difference? - 09/19/16 12:16 AM
 Answer:  There is a huge difference that could be a significant benefit to you.  
Being pre-qualified is pretty simple and can be an initial step in your purchase of your first home.  You supply a lendor online or via telephone your income, assets and debt for an evaluation of your financial canvas.  They in return, after their assesment give a "pre-qualified" letter of a mortgage amount you could qualify for.  The optimal word being here is..."could."   It's based on verbal conversation and at times a review of your credit report but limited to what the buyer offers verbally only.
Being pre-approved is … (3 comments)
