Buying a Home, First Time Home Buyers, Short Sale, Gary Keller's “The Seven Don’ts of Mortgage Funding, Farmbrook, Sylvania Ohio

Industry Observer with Retired Realtor

Are you thinking about Buying a Home?  Time is running out on the First Time Home Buyers.  Some first Time Home Buyers believe that a home currently in a Short Sale is a good bargain.  Yes, the price may be below market value, but it is my opinion that the time it currently takes to complete a Short Sale will take longer than the deadline of a June 1, 2010 closing. 


The Farmbrook subdivision is located in Sylvania Ohio. Nearby is  the JCC/YMCA, Olander Park, Tam O’Shanter Ice Rink, and many other educational and recreational facilities.  Student go to schools within the Sylvania School District.


Current Statistics provided by the Toledo Board of Realtors for the Farmbrook subdivision for the last six months are:
