Indian Hill, Ohio June 2020 Real Estate Market Report

Indian Hill, Ohio was named one of the best places to raise a family by the Robb Report.  Just as with many other markets inventory is low which means fewer homes available for purchase.  Fewer homes with plenty of qualified buyers lends support to current pricing levels.  Existing home sales are down from last year though, but with the lack of homes to sell would that be the same case with the enough homes to meet demand?

Tips For Renting Your Home

Whether you are looking to convert your home into a rental investment property or need to move and are unable to currently sell your home, converting it into a rental property is an option.  Contrary to what may be shown on television getting a home ready for rental and finding good tenants is not as easy as it appears.  This article explores what steps homeowners should be taking in order to rent out their home.

Determine If The Home Can Be Rented Profitably

Renting a home and not making any money on it, or worse losing money on it is not a great investment strategy.  While the homeowner may be forced to move due to a job or family situation, renting out a house where one has to pay money out of pocket to cover the mortgage and taxes does not make any financial sense.  Part of the reason for renting out real estate is so the owner can have a positive cash flow, some of which should be saved to account for repair and maintenance expenses associated with the home.  If the HVAC goes out the repair/replacement expense can be pretty.  If there is a water leak the repair of the leak and repair of the damage associated with the leak can be high as well. 

Thinking that long term appreciation will make up for the current lack of cash flow is also a faulty strategy to could end up costing the owner.  Appreciation is never guaranteed in real estate as depending on the economy and migration one may find themselves with a depreciating asset.  If a large employer decides to relocate or the desirability of an area decreases real estate prices as...

The Common Home Selling Advice

This advice bears repeating since it is important for home sellers to have their home put its best foot forward when it comes to getting buyer attention.  Anything less can result in a home sitting with little attention from buyers and needing steep price cuts in order to get sold.  Regardless of the current state of the economy there will always be a need for people to buy and sell homes.  With internet access couple painting houseavailable at the touch of a few screens on a smart phone, buyers are savvier than ever when it comes to knowing about the price in relation to the value of a home.

Buyers will not overpay for a home and overpricing a home is a surefire to prevent a home from getting sold.  Pricing is based...

June 2020 Greater Cincinnati Luxury Real Estate Market Report

June 2020 Greater Cincinnati Luxury Real Estate Market Report

Last year there were 80 luxury homes that sold within the month of June 2019.  The median price was $899,450.00.  Average days on market was 121.  The biggest difference this year as can be seen is the total amount of luxury homes sold only being 56 during June 2020.  The Greater Cincinnati region was just coming off the tail end of COVID-19 related economic shutdowns and many sellers pulled their homes off of the market as a result.  There were more luxury homes available for sale in June 2019 than there are today.  So long as qualified luxury home buyers are still ready to buy prices will stay steady in the luxury market with the limited supply.
