We have lived in the condo's (Calicoe Drive) at the Landings at Canal Park for over 20 yrs. Neighbors are all good people and friendly. We moved here from Green Township (as it was known then). Living so close to Akron Gen. Hospital is perfect if one needs a hospital visit. We're both 80 yrs. old, and glad we made the decision to move back into Akron in 1992. Our 1st home was in Firestone Park area, then moved to Green, and now back to the city. ... more

If you are on a time constraint, big banks like Chase and Wells Fargo may not be your best choice. Big banks are known to have slow service when it comes to getting a loan. You should check around and consider other lending options as well besides because. There are plenty of reputable mortgage companies and lenders like myself that would be able to help you out. I would be glad to speak with you to help you get the loan that you need. So if you have any further questions or if you need a loan, feel free to contact me. Good Luck!

Cece Fox answered:
Summit county sheriff sales are held every Friday at 10 am. The foreclosure dates are a matter of court record. That date has nothing to do with the auction date. The sheriff is currently scheduling sales through next February. You can go onto the sheriff's website to search by street or plaintiff name to find out when or if the property is scheduled for sale yet.

Note that there is very little chance that a member of the public can win one of these auctions. The banks send their attorneys who generally outbid anyone. Remember, they are just there to secure the property for resale by the bank. They are not bidding real money, although they must put the required amounts of money up and eventually pay all of the back taxes in order to take title. On very rare occasion, the bank attorney is instructed not to bid and, sometimes, a property doesn't sell at all. It is taking Summit county at least 8 months to record the deeds.

In other words, you must be prepared with your money down and property tax money and wait a very long time to get ownership. If you do not want to be concerned about further deterioration of a vacant property, you need to be prepared to take care of it for a long time before you actually own it. In the meantime, someone could be living there and you may have to evict someone.

There are many possible fixes. First is to make sure all the computer data is correct. One little mistake could make the difference in other Realtor being able to fine your home. In todays computer world every thing has to be perfect. Also you should have as many pictures as possible. Taking the home off the market for a bit would not hurt to get a fresh start. Buyers think something wrong with the home now due to market time. Listen to the feed back that you did get from the showings you have. And if you have a Cat get rid of it. LOL ... more

Thomas McCombs answered:
Interest rates will trend upward at a fairly slow rate, and will end up this year at 5.01445 %. Unless of course something happens to change this. And I have factored in a + or - 1% margin of error!
And of course the interest rate on a conventional first mortgage will be somewhat different than the rate on an FHA loan, and different than it would be on a car loan, and different that it will be for someone with a credit score of less than 760, different for an investor, different for a 2nd home, different for a home equity loan, different for a line of credit, different for a 2nd mortgage, etc.
The prime rate depends on who your bank is, the Federal Funds rate is unpredicatable, and the LIBOR is anyone's guess!
Does that answer your question?
Your loan officer will have the latest guess as provided by her lender, and that is probably as good a source for info as any. If anyone knew for sure what the interest rate would be in the future, he or she could make huge amounts of money by playing the market.
