Did you ever wonder about the name of Africa Road in southern Delaware County?   Where the name "Africa Road" came from?  I wondered. View Larger Map An Ohio Department of Natural Resources site has a page called  Ohio's Underground Railroad to Freedom which talks about slaves coming across the Ohio River from the south. Ohio played a large part in the Underground Railroad in the 1800s.   I wondered why Africa Road.  The site says: "One of the most famous Underground Railroad routes in central Ohio was Africa Road. This was the setting of one of the most extra-ordinary chapters in Underground Railroad history. The tiny unincorporated zone in southern Delaware County which was once the community of Africa touches the southern border of what is now Alum Creek State Park. Prior to 1840, th...

Walnut Bend in Westerville is a neighborhood I really, really like.  I believe all the homes in Walnut Bend were built by MI Homes but that is NOT why I like Walnut Bend.   I like the neighborhood because thare are some great lots. Great views.  Some of the odd numbered lots on Abbotsbury Dr. have a gorgeous view and the lots on the south side of Tree Bend Drive back to the woods or some do... but the view down the street on Tree Bend Dr. is what I love most.  One of the houses on Tree Bend Ct. with a gorgeous view of Walnut Creek, the park and the Westerville Community Center went "In Contract" really quickly earlier this year.The majority of the homes in Walnut Bend seem to be built in 2000 to 2003.

Question from agent: "I've been working on a file with BofA. [Countrywide] first and HSBC second. HSBC responded immediately several months ago wanting $7500. BofA responded with a counteroffer a few days ago wanting $5k more from the buyer, $3k to the HOA lien, and 0, nothing for HSBC. HSBC insists on $7500.Sellers live elsewhere and do not want to pay anything. What do you suggest beyond contacting the negotiators which I've already done? The first is not Fannie, Freddie, FHA or VA and, despite no payments since 10/09, it has no lis pendens [nod].  So, now what?" Diane Butler My Response : The good news is that HSBC  responded fast. You simply need to negotiate them down.  Here are a few general rules with 1st and 2nd mortgage negotiations. Rule #1: Most first's will pay the 2nd 10% o...

Foreclosure Frustration - Information Please... Trulia Voices "I have resorted to looking up property owners"  Barefoot said on Trulia Voices.  Barefoot a Home Buyer's question could just as likely be asked on Zillow, ActiveRain or other online real estate sites.   You as a consumer have lots of places online to get information about Foreclosures... but are they Foreclosures?  Are the properties on the list for sale now or ever? Barefoot Home Buyer wrote "I found a property I would like to make an offer on" Is the property for sale? I seldom answer questions on Trulia, Zillow or ActiveRain. I am probably NOT cut out for answering questions on Trulia, Zillow etc.  I don't think I understood when I first read his question that RA meant real estate agents.   He does not want to use a real ...

The Columbus Santa connection is in Westerville, a northeast suburb. Merry Christmas from DiscoverColumbusOH.com and Maureen McCabe of Real Living HER. Hope Santa stopped by your Columbus Ohio home… if you believe. Westerville, a suburb north of Columbus  has a Santa connection.  Did you know that Benjamin Hanby, favorite son of Westerville Ohio (Hanby is featured on the signs when you enter Westerville,  that were put up in 2003 for Ohio’s bicentennial for another of his songs) had a Santa connection?  Hanby wrote “Up On The Housetop” or maybe it is it “Up On the  House  Top”?  Looks like the Hanby House in Westerville believes it is  “House Top.”  That's what the sign on the front lawn of Hanby House says. That’s OK I think I grew up singing  “Up on a Roof  Top.” Hanby lived in the h...
