Fischer Homes sent out invites today for the first wave of orders for their latest Cincinnati patio home community Westfall Preserve.  An opportunity to pick a lot and pick a home before someone else gets the spot you want!Located in West Chester (northwest Cincinnati), Fischer Homes is planning 104 patio homes starting in the upper $200s and into the $300s base price depending on floor plan.  Add options as you will, it's an a la carte ordering process when you build from scratch.This is just Phase I, but we expect these homes to go quickly as there's no true negative associated with the community.In general it's our experience that unless there's a SERIOUS negative (like backing up to the I275 beltway), affordable new construction patio homes move VERY quickly.You might think a large ...

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 on this newly announced West Chester patio home community:Builder:  Fischer HomesPlanned community size:  104 homesCommunity name:  Westfall PreserveFloor plans:  ranch style, with options for finished basement...

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. Why? 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 to call them, courtyard homes).     Epcon will be building similar courtyard homes to the ones across the street in The Villas at Park Place.  They're already taking contracts for the first homes to be built in Bel Haven. Prices have climbed a b...

Epcon is making progress and after a year is close to completing sales for Phase I of their Bel Haven courtyard home community in West Chester Ohio.  That's a good sign since this will be a LARGE patio home community when completed, with close to 100 courtyard homes built by the end.   Epcon has capitalized on the success of The Villas at Park Place by opening Bel Haven directly across the street!  Double bonus, Epcon is offering more floor plans than they did at Park Place.      Bel Haven pricing is in the mid $300s and up (and expect most buyers to finish in the $400s or higher.  Bel Haven patio homes will have similar exteriors to The Villas at Park Place. Floor plans range from 1330 sq ft of living space all the way up to 2930.  Homes are built on a slab (so no basement) and depend...

Looking for new construction patio homes in West Chester Ohio?  Bel Haven by Epcon might just have the courtyard home you're looking to call home!  You know things have gone well in this Cincinnati suburb when the builder opens a new subdivision directly across the street from another patio home community!  The success of The Villas at Park Place led to the creation of Bel Haven.  Literally just across the street, Bel Haven offers even MORE floor plans!  And they're taking lot holds NOW!  Bel Haven won't be a small patio home community, with close to 100 patio homes when they're done, plus a pool and other amenities.  But for now, they're taking lot holds so they can start the building in 2018.  Pricing will start in the mid $300s and $400s, but depending on your choices you can obviou...

The Villas At Park Place in West Chester Ohio has a new set of homeowners as of this afternoon!  Our buyers closed on their courtyard home this afternoon and will be moving in about a week!  The builder is still doing a few finishing touches (that's why the garage door is up!), but the inside is absolutely fabulous! One of the primary considerations for our buyers in selecting their new courtyard home was accommodations needed for health issues.  Two members of the family use wheelchairs, so no stairs, a no lip shower entrance, wide hallways and other adjustments were critical.  Epcon was able to provide all that was needed and more for our buyers in The Villas at Park Place!  All flooring is either hardwood or tile, and there's not a single stair anywhere in the home.  The floorplan i...

The Villas At Park Place in West Chester Ohio has ONE lot left for new construction!  The 21 lots of the final phase went from this: to new courtyard homes, poured foundations and contracts for 20 of the 21 lots in less than a year!  One of those 20 spots went to one of our buyers and they're getting their new home at the end of this month! Expect to pay in the high $300s or into the $400s for your finished courtyard home. Call us (513-520-5305) to arrange a meeting with the builder's rep if you're interested in finding out more or to claim that last spot.  Resale courtyard homes in The Villas at Park Place are still rare since the community is so new.     Villas at Park Place General Information: The Villas At Park Place offers turnkey living. As part of the HOA fee you get lawn mowin...

As listing agents we love to have what we know will be an in demand home to sell, and 7685 Sussex Drive in West Chester Ohio was one of those homes!  Showings were immediate after going live in MLS and we were under contract in less than 5 days and thanks to a cash buyer, the entire process was completed for our seller in less than 30 days!  The offer was perfect for meeting our seller's needs and no counter was made.  A few inspection issues were addressed and this morning the sale was completed!  Happy buyer and happy sellers!   And more great news for our seller, due to the updates she'd made we were able to push the price point for the style of the home and achieve a contract price of $205,000 vs. asking price of $210,000. Key features of this home: 4 bedrooms & 2 baths.  Unlike mos...

Well priced homes in West Chester Ohio don't take long to sell, and we knew when we listed this nicely updated ranch home on a cul de sac street with a fenced back yard that we'd have a hot one on our hands!Fact is we had our first showing the morning of the day we were going live in MLS!  Our photographer knew an agent that had a buyer that fit the home, so she put in the word for us and that agent and her buyer were first in line!  Other showings quickly followed and while we had rumors of offers, it wasn't until the fifth day that we got the showing that led to an offer that afternoon with a three hour response time request.  The offer was strong and the seller chose not to counter and we were under contract within hours!  The calls keep coming, but this is a TOO LATE moment for othe...

We read the tea leaves for the West Chester Ohio real estate market and priced the home to meet our sellers' need for a quick sale.  The actual work had started months before when we met and discussed how to be best prep the home for sale.  When the sellers called us back at the end of February, they'd done fantastic work to make the home appealing to buyers.Almost as soon as the home was listed in Cincinnati MLS, the showings started and we had an offer and accepted contract within 36 hours of going live on the market!  Our sellers were thrilled to get their asking price, and addressed all the buyer's requests for repairs following the home inspection.The sale of 8269 Cox Rd in West Chester Ohio was completed yesterday afternoon and personally I was happy to see a young Army vet and hi...

West Chester New Construction Patio Home Update:  Park Place The Villas At Park Place in West Chester Ohio is down to SEVEN lots available out of the initial 21 for Phase II!  You're quickly running out of time to claim your own as these courtyard homes are in high demand! How much time from deciding you want one of these courtyard/lifestyle ranch homes?  About 6 months from visit to move in. What do you get with your purchase?  Besides the home itself (and they're VERY nice), you also get lawn mowing and basic landscaping along with snow removal.  Your HOA fee also covers exterior maintenance too AND trash, recycling, sewer and water.  You basically have a turn key home, perfect if you do a lot of travel or head South for the winter months!  Where are these patio homes?  Basically nor...

Cincinnati New Construction Patio Homes:  Park Place Update West ChesterThe Villas At Park Place offers West Chester patio homes built by Epcon Communities and Phase II is winding down!!!  They only have SEVEN lots remaining, so Phase II is 2/3 built out and on the home stretch to completion!  These courtyard style homes can be ready for you in about 6 months from contract to move in.You may have noticed we used the term "courtyard home".  What's the difference from a patio home?  Usually not much and usually it's just a different term used by builders.  However in this case, just like a typical patio home, lawn mowing, snow and leaf removal are taken care of but owners in The Villas At Park Place don't have to take care of the exterior of their homes either!  Your HOA fee covers any ev...

West Chester Ohio Jeannes Creek Water View Patio Home SOLD!8189 Jeannes Creek in the Jeannes Creek patio home community of West Chester now has a new owner!  The home below closed Thursday morning with The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite representing the buyer.  We love that the buyer asked us to help her find a patio home after finding to our extensive Cincinnati area patio home information on our website.  We spent months checking various area patio home communities and waiting for the best match for her needs.  This home became the front runner and after several visits an offer was written and negotiated.  There were some challenges working with the relocation company selling the home, but we worked through them and extended the closing to ensure our buyer's best interests were proper...

Friday the 13th Contract Leads To Happy Home Buyers!We were once again privileged to help find another pair of buyers there next home!  While Friday the 13th may give some people pause, it was a good day for our buyers back in February when we stepped into what would become their next home thanks to yesterday's closing!We'd originally started looking for a Cincinnati patio home for them, but as the search continued there was a shift in needs and a "regular" two story home fit the bill.  A Villages of Providence home newly on the market turned out to be the right West Chester home for them!  An offer was accepted on Valentine's Day and inspections were completed and needed repairs quickly negotiated.  Then it was just a matter of waiting for the closing date set to allow for the sellers'...

The Journey:  West Chester Ohio Home Sold By The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite If at first you don't succeed, try again!  We had this home listed in 2009 and it was immaculate!  Pottery Barn style, great presentation, half acre lot on a cul de sac street, 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths and a large crawl space.  And we got VERY close to selling it, but two different occasions buyers got cold feet and backed out of the deal.  At the same time the Cincinnati area real estate market continued to deteriorate, and what made best sense for the sellers was to lease the home and wait for a better day. Fast forward five years and our out of state owners reached out to us to take a look at the property for them because it's time to sell, and a short sale if need be.  We visit, and the news isn't good. ...
