Northcliff has an older and a newer section. If this home is closer to Ridge Road and Ridge Park Square, something either side of $800 would be reasonable.

Feel free to contact me directly.

That's an extremely tough area for any investment right now ...

$95,000 "steals" are barely breaking $69,000 - and thats if they need -0- ... there is 300ish homes for sale in Garfield Hts and most have been siting 300 days+ ... 50% of the rehabs between State and Pearl north of 480 are still there from 2006, and most renters are moving into Lakewood (sad) for less $$..

Now is not the time to be throwing any dice in that area ..
