The history of Cincinnati patio homes isn't really that old.  For the most part, the idea of this particular low maintenance lifestyle home is less than 20 years old.  There are ranch condos and some landominiums that are older, but it's only in recent years that more and more builders have caught on to the appeal of these communities in the Cincinnati area.There are currently plenty of builders offering new construction Cincinnati patio homes, from the large regional builders down to the much smaller custom builders.You want plain, it can be done.You want bells and whistles galore, that can be built too!You want below $200,000?  Well that ALMOST can't be done, but there is this ONE PLACE that can do it that we know of (and you wont' find the specifics on our websites)!But there are thi...

In Memoriam:  Laraine Shape "Home Not Selling Try SELLABREX . . ." This post is about the passing of the Cincinnati Real Estate Lady, Laraine Shape whom I met right here on ActiveRain.  Fellow AR colleague, Bill Spears, let me know. For the old timers, you may recall Laraine's alter-ego 'Ralph" -- Ralph The Real Estate Dog I met her, by way of Ralph, and found Laraine's humor and writing style to be unique and refreshing.  In getting to know her, she was the type of person not afraid or intimidated to speak out.  She did not like the psychiatric profession.  Not one bit.  Her blog Psych-Times.com is a parody site and it's brilliant.  She wasn't afraid to voice her disdain AND sell real estate AND bake.   How many of us are hesitant to voice an opinion?  Not only voice an opinion but put...

100 Cincinnati Patio Homes For Sale, Is One Your Next Home?  Give or take a few, 100 is about how many patio homes are for sale in the Cincinnati area.  We can add some more new construction to increase that number, and if you don't mind being attached, there are more ranch condos that just might fit the bill for a low maintenance lifestyle! The one thing that is common for them is they'll reduce the demands on your time!    Beyond that, there is some variety on what is offered: MOST include taking care of the winter snows All mow your grass and take care of the leaves MOST do some basic landscaping, and some are more extensive (mulching, fertilizing, etc.). Some include taking care of the exterior of the home, but most don't. HOA fees vary from about $75/month into $300+/month. Ameniti...

Take Me Out To The Reds Ballgame! Every now and then we all need a break.  A reprieve from the rat race.  Recharge, get together with some friends and just take advantage of the opportunities that living in the Cincinnati metro area offers.  And it offers plenty!  Because while Warren County offers no shortage of great things to do, some things you just have to head to the Big City! And Saturday afternoon/evening was just one of those opportunities, out with some of my friends of a couple of decades.  We've worked together building surgical instruments, helped each other move, (I even helped one find their next home), bowled league and played volleyball together.   We've all aged a bit, so our activities are a bit more sedate, like catching a Reds-Braves game!  (or at least we tried to!...
