That is reassuring to know. For property tax purposes, I think the county auditor is dreaming based on what he assesses my home to be and what homes on my street have been selling for.

How do I obtain a list of homes sold on my street for the past 3 years?

My aunt's home just sold for $68,000 in Cuyahoga Falls. On one of the realtor websites, it lists the house as being sold for $68,000, but minus 13.4%. What is this 13.4%? Realtor commission? Or another fee attached by the First Merit bank as part of their estate management program? Any advice is appreciated! ... more

What is your question specifically? If you're wondering what the price per SF is for this particular's a pretty basic math equation.To figure the price per-square-foot, take the list price and divide it by the square footage. For this property: $647,500 / 2,304 sqft = $281 per SF.

BUT....this isn't a good way to determine value. Why? Because the Price per SF method is just about basic math! Smaller square-foot homes command higher per-square-foot costs. Larger square-foot homes command lower per-square-foot prices. And...this method doesn't take into account things like location, neighborhood, updates, age of home, lot size...the list goes on.

If you're thinking of buying or selling, you really need to talk to a REALTOR who can give you an estimate of "Fair Market Value". Basically what similar homes (size, updates, location, etc.) have been selling for in the last few weeks or months.

Check out this article on price per SF:

Good luck!

It depends on where the house is and how it is assessed. You should go to the county website to see what the current owner is paying.

Real Estate statistics are local and can vary by street/neighborhood/community. As a general rule licensed agents can obtain those statistics through the Multiple Listing Service. I suggest you contact a local Realtor and provide that agent with the specifics you need. Another alternative is to check the public site of the County Auditor. Our auditor here in Lake County provides information on comparable sales. With a few clicks you can view recent sales and compare that data with county appraised values. Best wishes for a successful day. ... more

Hi Dan,

I can definitely understand where you are coming from, there are so many homeowners in the same situation as you and feel stuck with a home that no longer has the same value. Yes, the market is getting better and there is definitely hope however it would be hard to tell if it will continue to get better or worse at this point. There is still a lot of distressed properties in the area and that is something that takes time to even out. The good thing right now is that people are buying, and south Euclid is HOT right now. I would suggest either paying for a professional appraisal or have a realtor come out and do a full assessment of your home and go over your options. Your home may be worth more than you think as there are a lot of things to consider when determining value. If the value is still underwater, you may save more money in the long run with a short sale and/or died in lieu, depending on your situation. I would also recommend speaking with your account or tax professional as well, there are some options to help with the tax liability of that option,again depending on your situation. Renting the property out is smart and at least the home is paying for itself ( I hope) however waiting on the market to get better will keep you hanging for some time as there is no real stern answer to that question. If you have any other questions, please feel free to email me directly at Thanks and Good luck! ... more
