I attended my first ever Women of Faith event - Over the Top in Cleveland Ohio at the Quicken Loan Arena I was invited to attend the two day event by a girlfriend of mine who is a group leader for the event.  I  had no idea what I was committing to other than I wanted to go to support my friend, I really thought this was something her church was putting on.  Then she told me it was downtown, so I thought oh, they must have a really great turnout.  Little did I know this is a really big event with 29 stops in different cities. After attending today, the best way I can describe it is as a spiritual growth and healing conference for women.  The day started today at 9:00 am and was still going strong when I left at 9:00 pm.  Tomorrow starts at 9:00 am as well and promises to be as great as ...

Okay, that was exactly a cohesive or exact description of the way to compare what in blazes exists inside the frame-wrapped facade of a home versus the outside, but this week I showed quite a few homes, and quite a few properties made my head hurt and ended up leaving me perplexed. I guess one could look at it as a permutation of what a buyer could expect when viewing a property: Fabulous inside and neglected outside Neglected inside and fabulous outside Fabulous inside and outside Neglected inside and out The purpose of this post is not bullets 3 and 4, but the juxtaposition of the first two. I saw a fabulously renovated home on the inside and the outside was closer to abandonment than even trying to remotely stretch it as deferred maintenance. I saw another home with architectural del...

If you are thinking of buying a home in Greater Cleveland, Ohio, here is a home buying tip for you: Choose a home inspector who is a member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). Here is a link to The Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics for ASHI. You can also visit ashi.org for more details. Here is a full member list for the North Central Ohio ASHI Chapter. Read through the standards of practice and code of ethics.  This will give a buyer a better understanding of what comprises the home inspection process, items and areas that are and are not inspected, etc.

There is a legal concept called Procuring Cause that Cleveland Home Buyers would be wise to understand.  A buyer's agent should spend some time with a buyer at the outset discussing many things, and one of the topics is procuring cause.   Yikes...come on man...Procuring Cause...what's that? I just want to buy a home, can't you just show it to me?   The Ohio Association of REALTORS legal counsel has written several articles on procuring cause and agents also need to understand the implications and practical considerations of this important topic. Here is a more practical example written by real estate expert Elizabeth Weintraub on About.com. In a nutshell, procuring cause is about who is going to obtain the commission if you buy a home if there is more than one agent who has in some way ...

Any field of endeavor has it's crazy, funny and stupid things done by its practitioners -- real estate is no different, and I would argue it's worse.  Why is it worse? In real estate in Ohio, one only needs to take 120 hours of pre-licensing coursework in order to be able to sit for for both the national test and a state-specific test that my middle-school daughter could pass with very little effort.  Think about it: In the State of Ohio, it takes 1,500 hours to obtain a cosmetology license or 1,200 hours to be a hair designer yet 120 hours to seller someone's largest asset.Whoa dude...when I walk into Best Cuts and say take #6 clippers to my head for my summer cut, someone needs to train for 1,200 hours but if I want to go out and represent a client with say a 500K or 1m+ property and ...

My son is a huge Cleveland Indians fan.  Poor kid, the Cleveland Indians are in the cellar as usual and they lose most games.  So...my dilemma is: How can we go see them, have a good time, some great seats, without paying full retail price on everything? Knowing that there is an 80% chance they are going to lose.  Nothing worse than paying top dollar and listen to him all the way home dejected about getting hammered into the ground. It's actually quite simple and I'm sure budget-conscious consumers may already know this: Go to StubHub.com the day of the game and find the seats you want.  There are tickets already owned by sellers that are willing to sell them, sometimes at a steep discount, especially as you get closer to game time.  Game time was 7:05pm.  I bought great seats on the fi...
