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 ...

Most Cincinnati patio home builders have a fairly standard way of building patio homes.Expect side by side, with small strips of yard between them.  And when I say small, I DO mean small.  20-30 feet gap wall to wall isn't unusual.If you're lucky, there are woods or some type of water feature immediately behind your patio home, or maybe even a big earthen berm to provide some privacy.  But most often?  There's probably another row of patio homes immediately behind you, so if you're out back on your deck/patio and the neighbors are too, well I wouldn't discuss anything TOO intimate.Garages most often are front loading, but every now and then we'll see a model that side loads right next to the front door.The community may be just detached ranch style patio homes, or a mix of patio homes a...

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.

I just received another amazing review and I am totally elated and very thankful! ***** Highly likely to recommend *****01/28/2017 - Megan MenardBought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $125K in Hamilton, OH.Local knowledge: *****Process expertise: *****Responsiveness: *****Negotiation skills: *****Marty sold our house and made us money while doing it. We had our home listed the previous year during peak real estate months, our previous agent with a different company lowered the price 40k from what she started at and could not sell it, if she had, we would have owed thousands of dollars. Marty took into account several factors and listed at a firm price. He did not have us hide our belongings to make it look like we hardly lived there as the previous agent had. He ...

From the start our seller wanted a quick sale of his investment property.  We reviewed area sales and he went for the low end of the range to stimulate interest.  He made the necessary fixes we recommended prior to market introduction and the home had plenty of showings despite being in our market's "slow" part of the season.  A contract within a week with a cash buyer and the home was under contract.  One inspection repair later and we'd cleared all the hurdles to closing.Last Thursday we completed the sale two weeks ahead of contract and our seller's stress level is reduced!  Key features of this home: 3 bedrooms & 3 full baths.  The master has an attached bath, rare with ranch homes of this age!  Another full bath in the hall and another bath downstairs.  With the separate entrance t...

The Villas At Park Place in West Chester Ohio is now into its final phase!  We drove by today and the earth movers are in high gear setting up the streets and grading the land.  Since contract acceptance for the final phase began in the last two weeks, they've sold 8 of the 21 available lots.  The bulk of the lots bordering the trees on the side away from Beckett Road are already under contract for build.  Our buyers can expect their home to be ready in the May/June 2017 time frame. These courtyard homes are available in a variety of floor plans and buyers should expect final prices to be $350,000 to $450,000 after adding final options. 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 your spot.     Villas at Park P...

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...
