That depends on the condition and the price of a home. Some homes that are priced correctly are selling at full price. Generally speaking, a home price "right" will get 93 to 97% of list price. Running the comps 149 homes sold between 100-160 in the last 6 months with an average of 95% of list price. ... more

No, it doesn't but it's a lovely home with a lot of recent upgrades. I'd be happy to show it to you in person. If a first floor laundry is important to you, I'd be happy to show you a couple of other homes that do instead. My direct cell number is 440-623-7653

Like Ron implies below, there really isn't a "market value" of a home until someone buys it. There's no "Blue Book" or other price guide that you can look up a home and find the "market value".

That said, you can:
Have a good idea as to what similar homes in the nearby area are on the market for,
Have a good idea as to what per square foot asking price of similar homes in the area is,
Have a good idea as to what similar homes in the nearby area have sold for in recent months, total and per square foot.

This should get you in the ballpark.

Are you a buyer or a seller?
If you are a buyer, market conditions are the best I have ever seen.
If you are a seller things are not so wonderful, but any loss you may have to incur by selling your house can be passed on to the seller of the house you are buying. ... more

Nobody can really predict the future...especially in matters such as finance, home prices, employment, etc. With that said, Akron has received a bit of press lately regarding home prices. As of mid-month in August, prices were up about 36% from a year ago, the largest price gain in the ENTIRE country. Akron even gained more than cities such as San Francisco, CA! You can't deny these findings. This is a great boost for Akron as it was published in mutiple newspapers. And, as a life long "Akron-nite" I know how great this city is and all the hidden surprises that can be found around the city like the wonderful Art Meuseam, great resurants, a thriving art community, beautiful parks, our great "Keep Akron Beautiful" volunteers & a growing college community @ Akron U. If you keep your eye open & look around the city whether it be West Akron, North Akron, etc. and all the communities in between Akron is pulling through and growing as a community. ... more

Hi Greg,

Have you considered Richfield? It's just a few minutes from Fairlawn, has a school system that's among the highest rated in the state, and there are outstanding values to be had in the price range you've mentioned. It's a win-win all the way around. Richfield lots tend to be larger—at least an acre or more. It's a smaller community but offers convenient access to the turnpike, I-271, I-77, and I-71.

I'm a Richfield resident and can provide you with more information about the community if you're interested. You can start your search by checking out my website, which is listed below.

Best regards,
Beth Newcomb

there are several areas that have reports available. Check E neighborhoods. Also most large cities can offer affordable housing, there will always be pockets of less that desireable areas but you need to contact and agent that works in those areas to give you accurate advice. Last month alone I showed over 53 houses in Akron. Call me w/ any questions Virginia Edwards 330-221-4716. ... more

Paul, North Hill as other Akron areas are experiancing a long market time. Most listings are showing around 90 days. However, many of these homes are on their second listing. The first listings are usually 6 months. Many homes in the area are approaching 6-9 months on the market. Thats why pricing right from day one is extremely crucial. As stated below, most properties are selling 5-10% under list price. In many areas the inventory exceeds the demand by far. Unfortunately price is the only depending facor in some cases. Hope this helps! ... more
