I was asked recently by a buyer in the luxury market range for real estate in Beavercreek, Ohio if I thought house values in Dayton rising so dramatically would effect the Beavercreek Market. Interestingly, I had not one but two conversations with REO agents (they deal with prepping and listing foreclosed properties for banks) and had been told of large numbers of shadow inventory not yet in play in the Greater Dayton Metro area,

Home Improvement for House Value: Mistakes Part Nine

home improvement kitchen cabinetsWelcome back, let's talk about cabinets. Now, in the spring season remodeling is all the rage with kitchens and bathrooms topping the list of what adds value and popularity. Keeping in mind how long you intend on living in the home, this is one project you should weigh carefully in terms of return on investment vs. just doing some inexpensive DIY things for a good face-lift on the existing cabinets.

The "Face Value of Cabinets"

For increased house value most will remodel the whole kitchen, perhaps enlarging it, installing a new garbage disposal, fixtures and appliance upgrades and this is great if you intend on buying a home, living in it for some time and then selling a home at a profit. However,

Practice Real Estate with Honor

I am a brand new Realtor and the reason I am interested in Real Estate is because I have heard from dozens of friends who have purchased that they need an agent that they can trust. The thought and thrill of being part of this very exciting time in my clients lives and representing both sellers and buyers as best as I can while protecting my clients interests is why I have become a Realtor. Not to take advantage of people during one of the most exciting times in my clients lives. 

My wife is a 2nd grade teacher and a huge part of her job is teaching very basic right and wrongs in children's lives and to my benefit we have a very simple "Treat others as you would want to be treated" elementary philosophy, in my house. It

Condos Rising in Popularity

I was checking out the latest on Bloomberg, and came across a tid or two about condos making a comeback and then started surfing online and found supporting evidence that condos are beginning to become popular once more. It seems that new condo towers are appearing fast from the East to West Coast. Developers have long held that these are a riskier type of residential property. 

One example is a new forty-one story tower in Seattle currently under construction and the largest condominium development in the city's history. Also, consider a 22 floor condo living building scheduled to begin later on this year and the city's high-rise condominium endeavor since 2005.

Real Estate Technology - Differences over Drones

real estate drones selling a houseThe latest thing or a passing fad? Real estate drones, an expensive device much like a child's helicopter toy equipped with a video cam.

house value room additions"Special Purpose" Rooms

Many people have the impression that additional rooms naturally increases house value, well, not necessarily. My business partner and I work with not only a lot of first time buyers interested in Southern Ohio real estate, we also work with a lot of investors when these clients finish their work some turn around and want to sell.

I can tell you firmly, if you're going to add rooms, but you're intention is to sell at a profit down the road, stick with kitchens, bathrooms and if needed,
