While you'd like for no Cincinnati real estate purchase contracts to fall through, it does happen.  Fortunately the failure rate is rather low.And when a deal does fall through, one of the steps to releasing the deal is distributing the earnest money.The earnest money is essentially a deposit made at contract acceptance to show the seller the buyer is serious about the purchase and doesn't plan to abandon the deal.  However, the money does still belong to the buyer, and in most cases is applied as a credit when the sale is completed.The earnest money may be held by the broker on either side of the deal as specified by the contract.  In most cases if I'm repping the buyer I'm going to recommend our brokerage holds the funds.Why?  Just in case the deal does fail it is SLIGHTLY easier to r...

The weather is getting warmer and I know I'm back in lawn mowing season.  If I lived in a Greater Cincinnati patio home I wouldn't be breaking a sweat pushing a mower!  So if you're looking for low maintenance living, Fischer Homes has some move-in ready patio homes for you!  They take care of the snow and cut the grass, so you can spend more time enjoying Cincinnati or even heading out of town knowing all is well while you're gone! Fischer Homes remains one of the largest builders of Cincinnati patio homes, with first floor plans maxing out at about 2000 sq ft and then more can be added with a finished lower level or loft area depending on the selected plan.   Move-in ready patio homes are typically ready in 90 days or less, although some are slightly further out than that and have a T...

 We found our first flower blooms of the year so we know Spring is coming!  And with Spring there's an expected acceleration of the real estate market.  Fischer Homes is already seeing that pickup with a reduction in available move-in ready patio homes in Greater Cincinnati.  This time last month there were 7 available and that number has shrunk to 5.  Fischer Homes remains one of the largest builders of Cincinnati patio homes, with first floor plans maxing out at about 2000 sq ft and then more can be added with a finished lower level or loft area depending on the selected plan.   Move-in ready patio homes are typically ready in 90 days or less.  Since these patio homes were not designed to order, they'll be constructed to fit mainstream tastes and using Fischer's most popular floor pla...

Interested in Greater Cincinnati new construction patio homes available in 90 days or less?  Obviously if you start from scratch, you'd be looking at 5-7 months.  Fortunately some builders build some homes that fit mainstream tastes so there's usually a patio home that will be ready soon.  Now you won't get every floor plan and the finishes might not be a 100% match for what you want, but that's the trade for saving months of potentially living in temporary housing while you wait for a home to be ready.     Fischer Homes is currently offering the following new construction patio homes in the Greater Cincinnati area that are already complete or will be in the next 3 months.  This month 5 of those patio homes are on the Ohio side and 3 are available in Kentucky.  On the Ohio side:Mainevil...

If you’re a real estate investor or simply have the flexibility to choose which neighborhood to buy a home or condo in, then you want to make sure you’re buying in a neighbourhood that’s not only desirable but also in an upwards trend. There are at least 52 neighborhoods in the greater Cincinnati Metro, below are some of the hottest areas:Over the RhineThe Over the Rhine neighborhood has come along enough that even locals do not recognize it anymore. You can find lots of young professionals on its vibrant streets. The local scene has attracted lots of guests over the years. Also, it is one of the best spots for food. For example, you can find Holtman's Donuts which have been voted as the best doughnut in the city. Since it was founded in 1960, the lines have grown so long that you might...

So you're thinking about building a new Cincinnati patio home?  And you'd like to know if you can get one built for under $300,000?The answer is both Yes AND No!  It's a great big "it depends".There are a fair number of places in the Greater Cincinnati area to build a new patio home, and some are way more affordable than others!Some areas have little to no patio home construction, or when they do, they come at a premium.  For instance builders in Blue Ash know they can get $500,000 and up for patio homes, and $400,000 and up for their attached condos.  Obviously Blue Ash comes with a premium!  You want Mason Ohio patio homes?  Pretty much the same deal.  Expect to open up your wallet to the tune of $450,000 minimum.Cross the Ohio River into Kentucky?  It's still more "it depends".  Some...

Looking for low maintenance living in the Springfield Township Ohio area?  Drees Homes may have the answer for you with their Bridgecreek Townhome community!  Now townhomes can mean different things to different people, but for Drees it's typically an attached ranch condo with a finished basement.In this case you can build new starting at $207,000.  Not a bad price for this kind of condo!   Bridgecreek Townhomes's location is reasonably close to Ronald Reagan Highway, I-75 and I-275.  Located just off Compton Road isn't where you'd typically expect to find new construction, but here it is!Key facts about Bridgecreek Townhomes: 2 floorplans offered.  Both the Medford and Newkirk offer 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a 2 car garage.  Size is 1656 and 2002 sq ft for the two plans.  Prices sta...

 Periodically we get contacted by someone looking for a rental.  Perhaps it's a patio home they're looking for, or maybe a condo or a regular home.  And we do have the capability to search for rentals on our Cincinnati MLS homes for sale search website.  Just used the Advanced Search function and change Residential to Lease/Rent and then put in your other key criteria.But here's the likely outcome of that search:You're not going to find much!Why?Because Cincinnati MLS is primarily about home selling and not home rentals.  It's just not the main business, so the end result is there won't be a lot of entries for rentals.Most sellers need to sell to buy their next home, so leases don't get them to their next place.And landlords, they're not too keen on paying for agents, so they're not too...
