new construction: Cincinnati New Construction Patio Homes in Amelia Kline Station - 09/06/19 05:03 PM

There's another new construction patio home choice in east Cincinnati!  Ryan Homes is building Kline Station in Amelia.  Homesites are limited, with just over 30 lots total for the community.  Ryan Homes is offering four ranch home floor plans starting in the upper $100s and low $200s.  Obviously you should expect those prices to bump up as you pick your options, but still, those are some of the lowest prices in all of Cincinnati for low maintenance living!  And yes, Ryan Homes is referring to them as low maintenance homes rather than patio homes, but if it looks like a patio … (2 comments)

new construction: You Can Choose To Go It Alone - 09/05/19 07:14 PM
Let's say you've got a task to do.
It's not something you do often, or maybe even never before.
You know there's information out there about how to do this task, but you can't be totally sure how good the information is.
There's differing opinions out there, some swearing you don't need any help at all and you can save major bucks if you skip the help.
Others will vouch for how important that help can be, especially if things start to get a bit sideways.
And here's the thing about this choice, it's one you have to make early.
You either choose to go solo, or … (1 comments)

new construction: Cincinnati New Construction Patio Homes in West Chester - 08/30/19 06:58 PM

In search of low maintenance living on Cincinnati's West Chester suburb?  There's another option coming in 2020 and these patio homes will be a bit more budget friendly than the existing new construction patio home options.  These planned patio homes are planned to start at around $260,000 base price.  Now just like other area new construction homes, that starting price is likely to be quite a bit less than the finished price.  Expect to realistically push that base price into the $300s, and a floor plan priced in the mid $300s is likely to push into the $400s.
So here's the scoop … (1 comments)

new construction: Can I Buy A New Construction Patio Home For The Starting Price? - 08/10/19 07:16 PM
You see the signs as you drive around the Cincinnati area.
The builder's community entrance sign states:  "Starting in the $230s!" or "Starting in the $310s!" or some other fairly reasonable price for the area.
Those numbers are in your price range so you figure you can live there.  But can you?
Is the starting price realistic?
Can you actually build a home for that "starting" price that you'd be happy with?
Most likely not because of what it takes to get that "starting" price.
First, you have to take the smallest floor plan available.  You need a 4 bedroom home?  That starting price is for a … (3 comments)

new construction: Buyer Beware Also Applies To New Construction Homes - 07/31/19 05:08 PM
You're ready to build a new home, just the way you want it.
You'd love to think your new home will be built perfectly from start to finish.
Or if you're buying a move-in ready new construction home that there wouldn't have been any issues along the way.
After all, on the surface the home looks about as perfect as it can, doesn't it?  All the latest color schemes, gleaming hardwoods, soft close drawers and shiny counters, what's not to like?
But the surface look can be deceptive.
What if something major went wrong during the building of that new home?
Is there any obligation of the … (0 comments)

new construction: Cincinnati New Construction Patio Homes in Harrison - 07/15/19 05:00 PM

In search of low maintenance living on Cincinnati's West Side?  Patio homes are a bit scarcer to the west than they are north and east of Cincinnati, so Harrison's Villas of Westhaven may be just the answer to your home search!

new construction: Way Too Early Information For Future Lebanon OH Patio Homes - 06/24/19 04:27 PM
Sometimes we have Cincinnati patio home information, but it's not actionable.
We can't sell you a home (yet).
We can't show you a home (yet).
We can't help you pick out a new lot (yet).
We can't even tell you too much about the opportunity (yet).
What if there wasn't anything we could even do for a year or two, would you still want to know?
We think for many people the answer would be yes, so here's what we CAN tell you now.
At some point in the next year or two Fischer Homes will have a new community in Lebanon Ohio for sale.
They'll be featuring their … (1 comments)

new construction: West Chester Ohio Patio Home Community Nearing Ground Breaking - 05/31/19 03:57 PM

We've known about West Chester Ohio's new patio home community for some time, so long in fact that it wasn't always a good fit for some of our buyers.
It takes significant time to go from concept to approval to streets laid to actually building homes!
So while Epcon's Bel Haven community has been an appealing concept, 2018's buyers weren't interested in waiting for late 2019 to take possession of their new home.
Well the wait is almost over.  Epcon is close to breaking ground and starting to build the first patio homes (or as they prefer … (1 comments)

new construction: Should I Buy A Resale Home Or Build New? - 05/25/19 05:15 PM

You're ready to make a change from your current home.
There's a lot to consider and one of the chief decisions to make is Resale or New Construction?
Resale homes are out there, no matter what the market.  They may be scarce or plentiful, but there's always some out there.
New construction reacts to the economy.  When the economy is depressed, new construction slows WAY down, and for certain builders pulls the curtains on their existence.
Whether to buy resale or new construction is going to come down to several key factors:
1.  Your budget.  Depending on desired location, there may be no builder offering anything … (2 comments)

new construction: Montgomery Ohio Low Maintenance Living Update May 2019 - 05/20/19 05:10 PM

If you're looking for low maintenance living in the Montgomery Ohio area and want to build new, you're in luck...Robert Lucke Homes that is!  Last fall they announced plans for The Villas of Montgomery, and they've been making good progress on this small community!  Robert Lucke Homes bought a group of older small ranch homes and cleared the property just  a bit south of Bethesda North Hospital to make way for 12 attached ranch condos (or villas depending on your naming preference!).
2 of the 12 have already been sold and the foundation poured on the first pair of villas.

new construction: Another Happy Buyer For A Cincinnati 55+ Patio Home - 04/19/19 05:25 PM
There's one community we keep coming back to with our buyers.  As Cincinnati's ONLY 55+ community, Heritage At Miami Bluffs has an appeal unlike any other community!

So last year when another potential patio home buyer contacted us, we worked together to match her needs up with the best choices for a new construction patio home.  The final decision came down to two patio home communities:  one with a more affordable patio home, but with significantly less social offerings, or Heritage At Miami Bluffs.
Ultimately the overall community offerings of Heritage At Miami Bluffs won out.  Final selections were made the building process … (2 comments)

Cincinnati's ONLY true 55+ community  Heritage At Miami Bluffs is in the FINAL phase of the FINAL phase.  Thanks to someone voiding their contract, there's a bonus chance to lay claim to a spot in what many consider to be THE BEST Cincinnati patio home community!  We've had many buyers agree over the years and whether building new or buying a resale, they've claimed Heritage At Miami Bluffs as their home!
If you want a new construction patio home in Heritage At Miami Bluffs, there are currently (as of April 5, 2019) just TEN spots left.  Drees is building 5 market homes, … (1 comments)

new construction: Move-In Ready Cincinnati Patio Homes By Drees March 2019 - 03/27/19 07:01 PM

The flowers are blooming in Greater Cincinnati and this time of year is great for the builders!  They can really press the accelerator pedal and get homes finished up!  And that holds true for Drees Homes just like other new construction patio homes in our market!
Drees is one of the top Cincinnati patio home builders and we've regularly had buyers choose Drees to provide a great community and build them their dream home!
But let's say you don't want to wait 5-7 months to build a patio home from scratch, are there other options?  Yes there are!  Drees offers move-in ready patio … (1 comments)

new construction: Deerfield Township Patio Homes Proposed March 2019 - 03/22/19 01:11 PM

AFFORDABLE NEW CONSTRUCTION PATIO HOMES in Deerfield Township?  For most of our buyers those words are a combination we haven't been able to offer in the Mason/Deerfield Township area.
Affordable?  We can find some older, plainer resale patio homes, but they won't be new construction.
New construction patio homes?  We can find those too, but they've typically priced well over $400,000, and for many of our buyers that's just a bit too rich for their budgets.
Pending a zoning change approval by Deerfield Township, we may finally be able to offer "affordable" and "new construction patio homes" combined!  If all goes as expected, Fischer … (0 comments)

While the picture might be a bit gloomy thanks to a rainy day, inside there was happiness, happiness that might have been thought impossible last summer.
The house above?  It's not the FIRST house the builder built for my buyers in the last year.  About four doors down there's another ranch home with a great view and great finishing touches.  The home was just a few months from being done, but the builder made a HUGE error in construction.  It was just a foot...a foot short in ceiling height throughout the home.  A first time ever error and there was just no … (4 comments)
