You need to ask the Realtor to do a CMA for you so you can make an informed dcision. If the Realtor refuses or says it is not necessary FIND ANOTHER REALTOR.

NO! It may of been good 20 years ago, but that part of town is not the best place to live. Try another area.

NO WAY. Try Walnut Hills. Much better neighborhood, very reasonable in price. Trust me, you do NOT want to live on, in, or near Lexington.

For unemployment and other statistics you can try It is illegal in the state of Ohio for a licensed real estate agent to personally comment about these issues.

being both a realtor and on a HOA board I can telly ou that there should have been a protocol they followed. You should have received a letter about your delquency first. Then they should have sent you a letter informing you that you have X days to either pay the balance or call to work out a payment plan. If you did not respond by that date they would have informed you that they are placing a lien on the property.

Since you received the lien are now responsible for the attorney fees, court costs and back HOA dues. I recommend you write a letter explaining your situation and a reasonable affordable payment plan you can make. the HOA board should accept it.

If you ignore it the HOA board will have the right to file a foreclosure against you on the house. Literally they can take your home for back HOA dues. You still would have time to work out a payment plan but then your costs will be triple what they are now; and they probably will want a more aggressive payment plan.

Tell the first Realtor that you don't wan to work with them and that you've found your "own" Realtor and you're looking at other houses. Sign an exclusive agency agreement with your new Realtor and move on. The only problem you may have is if you decide to go back an buy the house that the first Realtor showed you before you had the second Realtor. If that happens, put up another question. BTW, make sure you tell your new Realtor about the situation with the other Realtor.

Good luck.

FYI, this statement is not correct:

>>In Ohio a Realtor is required to ask for your signature on the state mandated form "Consumer's Guide to Agency Relationships" before showing you any homes. If you signed this form you must use the Realtor to purchase this home.

That form is not a contract and doesn't bind you to anybody. It's merely a disclosure.

Questions regarding crime and safety In West Carrollton any neighborhood are best referred to the local police and sheriff departments. They will have the most up to date and accurate information. A local agent is typically legally restricted from offering an "opinion" about such matters. ... more
