If you remove the variable of distressed bank owned parcels, the city is holding its value well. The housing stock is well made and the community is stable with a good school district. The city is lauching a green initiative and plans to work with a private developer to rehab numerous properties using green building techniques and universal design. Neighborhood community gardens are planned as well as a marketing strategy that will emphasize walkable neighborhoods, proximity to mass transit, University Circle, educational resources, and the Mteroparks.

The biggest advantage of renting to own is if your present circumstances , primarily credit problems, prevent you from purchasing in today's market. Contrary to what the media is telling everyone, there are still programs available to QUALIFIED buyers that want to buy homes with little or no money down.
Very often, you can buy for less than rents may cost. Plus you have some great tax advantages by buying!
But, if you do not have any other choice,there are many homes in the S. Euclid/Lyndhurst area that a seller would be willing to work with a potential buyer to provide them a positive cash flow while they are unable to sell them in today's market. Looking at homes that are vacant or homes that have been on the market for an extended period of time may be a good area of potential candidates.

It depends entirely on how long ago the bankruptcy was and how you have handled your credit since that time. I would recommend you speaking to a lender. There are many programs out there that offer help to people looking to purchase. Most of them have restrictions but you need to begin by seeing how your credit looks after the bankruptcy. If you would like to talk more about this, please call me and I can put you in touch with some lenders that may be able to point you in the right direction. 440 341-9100... more
I only use an exclusive right to sell contract because I work very hard to market and promote my listings. I also go over the contract with my clients so that they understand what they are signing. If anyone tells me "oh my cousin Joe said he might like to buy my house" I say great he has one week to decide. Many times all these phantom friends and relatives, when they are asked to get off the pot, do just that. "Hi Cousin Joe, I'm about to list my house with a realtor. You mentioned last month that you would pay 700,000 for it. If you stil want to buy it, I'll need your attorney's information by 5 oclock today so that my attorney can draw up our contract, and I won't bother listing it".... more
