We're official!  Our buyers have an approved contract to buy a "Move-In Ready Fischer Home"!  While we started our search in Warren County Ohio, the search soon moved to northern Kentucky (just one perk of having an agent that is licensed on BOTH sides of the Ohio River!).  Our buyers are currently stationed in Oklahoma and had no househunting trips planned.  Thanks to Skype and video calls, that didn't stop us from some virtual showings on a selection of Fischer Move-In Ready Homes.  With three possible homes as strong candidates, the list was soon narrowed to one!A Quinn floorplan on a cul de sac street offered the right combination of price and features for our buyers: A large open floorplan with over 2600 sq ft of living space Hardwood floors throughout the main level  Gas fireplace...

Located on Dixie Highway in Ft. Mitchell, KY just across from the Kroger Plaza, Highland Cemetery is home to over 3 miles of nature trails. There are several trails range from .03 miles to around 1.12 miles. Trails are named after woodland creatures as follows: Bald Eagle (.29 mi), Black Squirrel (1.12 mi), Box Turtle (.45 mi), Fossil (.32 mi), Coyote (.31 mi), Oppossum Path (.03 mi), Screech Owl (.46 mi), and Tree Frog (.22 mi). I am just getting started hiking the trails in the greater Cincinnati area. I feel like for a beginner, these trails are easy to handle. This is a great place to spend a few hours and take in the woods. I recommend blocking out at least a couple of hours so you have time to make your way around. It took about two hours for Black Squirrell, Oppossum Path, and Ba...

This property is located at 417 East Southern Avenue and is listed at $35,000 with a repair escrow of $3,300.

3313 Turkeyfoot Road Rumors - Is Joey Votto Building this home? If you want to create some gossip in Northern Kentucky, just build the biggest house in the area on a highly traveled highway. Construction has been in progress on this home for what seems like years, but everytime I drive by it, there is something new done to it. There is one rumor going around about Joey Votto, first baseman for the Cincinnati Reds baseball organization is building the mansion. I have a theory that proves otherwise. The property was previously owned by a Charles and Ruth Gall (found in tax records) and was a 3 Bedroom 2.5 Bathroom ranch home on 7.6 acres. The MLS listing added that the value was in the land. I would say so, because when the buyer purchased, they paid $818,000 of the $895,000 list price an...
