This month, Central Ohio residents who have been keeping an eye on the real estate market may be beginning to see renewed signs of life. The stirrings are still relatively minor, but those of us who have observed the ups and downs in real estate markets for more than a decade or two are used to seeing exactly that before substantial activity gathers wider attention. Our Central Ohiolisting and sales figures take time to compile, but we’re seeing early national figures that hint at the change. According to the National Association of Home Builders, house prices are growing (“modest gains in the third quarter”) and new home sales show slight improvement. It’s about time. That movement is confirmed by the familiar Case-Shiller and FHFA indexes.                                              ...

      It can happen to anyone. And for any Gahanna  homeowner who finds that unanticipated financial challenges combine to make their mortgage no longer affordable, a short sale can sometimes provide the most practical solution.  However, selling a house during winter months can be an additional challenge: there are fewer inquiries and as a result, fewer showings.   When someone needs to get out from under a mortgage quickly – often the case when a short sale is indicated – this time of year can add stress to that short sale process.                                                                                                                     Recruit a Qualified Team For any Gahanna  homeowner who is considering a short sale at this time of year, there are a number of experts you s...

    Last year saw first-time home buyers snapping up the highest market share ever recorded (according to the NAR). After years of being pushed out of the residential market by spiraling home prices, first-timers are now coming into the market in force. Yet navigating the waters of today’s Gahanna real estate market can be tricky, especially for the first time home buyer who is faced with determining when - and what - to buy.   Some of the uncertainty that goes with an unpredictable economic news can be relieved by considering time-tested real estate buying guidelines. When considering buying a home, here are two fundamental questions that can help with a first home-buying decision:   1 - How long do I plan to live in this home?    If the answer is one or two years, or that you can’t be...

When it comes to potential home buyers doing their best to assess the local real estate market, “conventional wisdom” can be more than a little misleading. Abrupt, headline-grabbing news or events can sway that conventional wisdom in a hurry. But when conditions undergo changes that are subtle, slow to materialize, or when published statistics report months-old information – conventional wisdom can miss the boat altogether (or at least for the next few sailings!) For quite a while, conventional wisdom has been that economic and political uncertainty was drying up the supply of home buyers. The numbers ultimately confirmed the trend.  But trends are never permanent. Yesterday’s “stalled” housing market will become the future’s “newly active” market just as inevitably as previous red-hot ...

  Back in the ‘90s, Tom Robbins’ imaginative novel was repurposed into a forgettable movie – but the ‘Cowgirls’ theme was revived a few years ago in articles about the glum side of skyrocketing property value appraisals: outsized tax bills whose rise was the source of much gloom and doom. At least today’s property owners don’t need to complain about rising property values – but they can (and do) worry about the tumble in book value. Since no one who owns a  Gahanna property bought it so that they could lose sleep over it, how do you (and the cowgirls) make the best of the residential deep six?    The first thing you can do is to take a reality-based look at whether the property value situation has any actual impact on your personal finances at all. Retirees and safely settled long time ...

                                                                                                                      It’s a common situation, but one without a standard solution: how do you handle a Gahanna area property listing when it’s leased or rented to an occupant other than the owner.   Real estate brokers and salespeople are fairly unanimous in the opinion that, from their point of view, a vacant property makes the best listing. Because there is no tenant to inconvenience, this situation provides the listing agent with maximum flexibility in scheduling his and cooperating agents’ access. No matter how fervently they may wish to avoid last-minute showings, keeping that option open can occasionally prove decisive. A vacant property also remains clean and showable at all times, e...

      “Good bosses make good workers!” It's one of those truisms you don't even have to think about. You don't need an MBA to know that it's just plain common sense, whether it’s Nov. 2011 or a year from now. When you commit to buy or sell a home (or business property, because all this applies to Gahanna,Ohio  commercial real estate, too) you are in effect going into a new business. It will be a single-transaction business – but that transaction is a huge one. As in most businesses, you are going to need skilled, reliable labor: in this instance, that’s your real estate agent. So how do you become one of those 'good bosses'? The first thing an effective boss does is to make sure his staff (your real estate agent) knows exactly what the job is about, and what his or her duties are going...
