  We went to Mezzo Italian Kitchen in Gahanna just after the news that the  Creekside Development was sold, including the Residences at Creekside condominiums. We went to Mezzo for my birthday dinner in June.  We do not eat Italian out often but Mezzo Italian is one central Ohio restaurant with gluten free choices.  I chose the penne with shrimp. It was not a good choice.  The gluten free penne was over cooked (that happens with gluten free pasta.)  I should have chosen the scallops.  I got a taste of both the scallops and the risotto (which were on the gluten free menu.) I had the scallops the first time I visited Mezzo.  I will have the scallops the next time I go to Mezzo in Gahanna.  We visited Mezzo on one of the few cool summer evenings in late June and ate on the patio overlooki...

                                                                               As a whole, we Americans are an interesting group.  We are smart, educated, involved in our community…and, not unlike the rest of America, our attention span about 5 or 10 seconds.  It follows that when you put your home on the market and your agent places it among the local real estate listings, your home has about that long to grab potential buyers’ attention.                                                                                                Time and time again, studies show that real estate listings with superior curb appeal get markedly more attention than those with run-of-the-mill photos.  First impressions count. It’s how advertising agencies can charge hundreds of thousands of dollars to g...

    Whenever a local homeowner decides to sell a home, it is tempting to consider selling without the assistance of a  real estate broker. After all, who knows a home better than its occupant does? And there’s the broker’s commission – who wouldn’t want to save 6%-7% of the sales price? These are two distinct questions, and both of them are valid.   The answers to each are equally valid, and, surprisingly, they are also the same. The reason to use a real estate broker is so that you can make more money $$$!                                                                                                          Perception While it may not be true, many potential homebuyers who look for a  “For Sale by Owner” sign assume that the seller will be quick to bargain on the price. After all, th...

                                                                Enough already! Economy this! Housing market that!. It seems like we have been bombarded with mostly bad news forever. Every month Gahanna would-be home sellers and prospective buyers hope for signs that the economy has turned around, and this month was no exception. But despite the relatively good news that unemployment numbers continue to show promise, the question remains: just how will we know when the Gahanna real estate market begins its upswing in earnest?   Market forecasting is always a bit like reading tea leaves, but for a change let’s take a look at three areas that could be indicators of positive economic signs for a real estate recovery:                                                                          ...

If you are a Gahanna  property owner who is seriously considering whether to sell your house, you know there are many practical details that bear careful consideration. One of the first is the decision regarding whether or not -- and if so, to what extent - refurbishing or upgrading the property will be a sound financial move.                                                                                         The first and most obvious advantage of making home improvements before you sell your house is that you can be sure that it will become more attractive to potential Gahanna buyers. A house that clearly signals the need for after-purchase repairs can be expected to garner lower offers that factor in those costs, which may be exaggerated (or even wildly exaggerated due to ‘fear o...

                                                                Sometimes the initials in an acronym are helpful, but ‘REO’ (short for Real Estate Owned) isn’t one of them. After all, isn’t all real estate owned by somebody? What the headline writers are talking about is a property, usually a repossessed home, owned by a lender. That’s usually a bank, government agency, or government loan guarantor, which typically comes into possession after a failed sale at a foreclosure auction.   Now let’s assume you’ve watched the late-night infomercials (Rich Dad Poor Dad, anyone?) and you’re pumped to buy a Gahanna REO to begin your climb to real estate fame and fortune.  “Easy as pie,” the commercials promise!  "Opportunity isn't just knocking -- it's pounding the door down!"  Such enthusiasm is...

                                                             Here in Gahanna it’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays have finally taken over. This is hardly an unpredictable phenomenon, but this year there did seem to be a slightly longer delay than usual following Thanksgiving. Even if the Christmas tree lots weren’t in evidence, the cheer-inducing holiday lights and colorful store window ornamentation have begun to do their work in earnest. It’s a good thing, too, because festive decorations can go a long way toward mellowing out any feelings of anxiety that tend to accompany the onslaught of end-of-year business and household deadlines…                                                                                                                      There’s nothing like the ...

                                                                 For many homeowners who purchased brand new homes in 2003 – 2006, the years since have been long and disappointing. They bought before talk of a housing bubble began to slow new home purchases in the national and here in the Gahanna market -- before there was an inkling that they could soon find themselves underwater on their home loans.                                                                                                                Despite the protracted economic slowdown, and despite some predictions that the national housing market might stall again or even fall further, some recent months have shown residential sales figures that are higher than predicted.  This would seem to be counter-intuitive. It make...

                                                                       Every business, according to Allen Bistro, has what he calls a M.A.P.  He says that every business has three major functions.  Every real estate firm, no matter how large or small, has a Marketing function, an Accounting function, and a Production function.  Marketing brings buyers and sellers to your door. Marketing provides the leads for the sales force and brings clients to your door.  Production is the profit center for every business.  Production (agents and brokers) are responsible for the revenue (commissions) and expenses that generate the commissions for the agency by helping buyers and sellers achieve their goals. But it was Fra Luca Aioli, the father of modern accounting, who said that there are three thin...
