You might as well be describing MY neighborhood! I know this question is older, but just in case you were still wondering!

When you remodel you must make sure that you aren't spending so much that it puts you far more expensive than neighboring homes. It's always best to think how much that home could sell for in the future - because honestly, you never know when you might need to sell!

A good neighborhood analysis should put your mind at ease =)

I live in Dublin. The commute to downtown Columbus is a nightmare, nearly any given time of day. Yes, the schools are good. If you do have to commute, Clintonville is a great community and there are private schools reasonably priced in the area. Quality of life is very good, but Clintonville has a friendlier atmosphere.
Delaware is nice too, but the commute to Columbus would take at least an hour or so each way. The schools are decent, and its not as congested as the Dublin/Powell/Columbus area. Tax base is lower too. I'm not an agent, just someone who has lived in the area all my life.
My wife preferred the Clintonville/Short North area, but at the time we bought, I needed to be in Dublin. Hope that helps.

I believe that it's Trinity Homes as well. Definitely an option, but I agree that you'll probably be farther ahead by selling your existing home before you buy. You'll have more options and be in a better leverage position to negotiate. Hope that helps!

Hello Renee,

If you are referring to homes you are searching on Trulia, in the Hilliard or surrounding area; it is best to go the Franklin County auditor's website to be certain the numbers you are reviewing are correct.

Franklin County lists their properties annual ( yearly ) tax rates for any given property on the front page, bottom left after you have input the address for a property search.

While Trulia is an awesome website, their information at times is incorrect or not updated correctly for various reasons. With that said,regardless of the county, I would recommend you do a property search via the auditor's site to be certain of not only the accuracy of numbers but to determine if what you are seeing is a 6 month or 12 month number.

The auditor's website for Franklin county is:

If you need further assistance or have questions, please don't hesitate to contact me, I would be happy to help!

When the details of your home have been published on aggregate websites the reality is ...ALL CONTROL OF THE DATA IS LOST!
Buyers and sellers need to be advised of the peril this creates when interior images, often including floor plans, are available for anybody with intent to harm. Seller's need to be aware their home does not benefit at all from being on aggregate websites. ALL REAL BUYERS have access to the MLS where the real homes for sale information exists. HOLD REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTABLE for allowing sellers to create this peril. (The MLS has approved professional websites through which home listing are published but the data is responsible and controlled.)
Tapas, what you must do now, if your queston is serious, is go to GoolgeMaps and blurr the image of your home. This resouce is the most popular tool for those who intend harm by presenting bogus Ror Sale. lease, rent ads and allows Trulia and Zillow to mis-resprsent home data. If you are seriuos...blur your homes image.
Now that you have blurred the image and demonstrated you are serious, give Trulia a call.
Be aware, your homes data is already EVERYWHERE..but you can get it removed from this site....but it WILL ...REAPPEAR... with a google street view....get my point?

Suzette Salyer answered:
Some of the properties that have been on the market so long apparently just don't show well. I have viewed several and they do not have neutral paint, are not staged well and are not appealing to most buyers. Sometimes sellers have to change some things and have a professional advise them how to
neutralize, unclutter and stage. That is part of my job as a realtor to do that for all of my rclients.
The condo grounds are beautiful with walking paths, ponds and fountains. A great place to live!
Call me for any additional information 614-581-7905.

Annette Lawrence answered:
Let's consider the ways a financed offer can be compromised and effect the home seller.
(Pulled from archives dated March 6, 2013)
1. Schedule appt and notify agent, No lock box, I MUST BE PRESENT TO SHOW!
2.. Agent arrives 45 minutes early and forces buyer and agent into an 82 year old widows home.
3. 3 hours spent counseling terrorized 82 year old seller that this will never happen again..
4. Full price offer submitted by agent with 5% down
5. Lender is Wells Fargo
6. Kick to curb and accept lower, cash offer. (within 1% of list price)

Everything about this event spelled trouble...never ending trouble.
The magic of cash offer is the greater assurance of closing. Mix in a rogue agent, a Too Big to Care about dates Lender, and the scheduled beat down from the appraisal and you find CASH offers have the same soothing influence as fresh cookies and apple pie in the oven.

Agents, your behavior can sink you buyer chances.
Going rogue is ill advised.
Making demands (must review deed restrictions before making offer)
Allowing buyer to fiddle while home is being marketed.
Making irrelevant comments detrimental to home while buyer is saying, "It doesn't matter."

In the last two days I've observed agents prevent their buyer from succeeding.
Cash buyers WILL BE PRESENTED as more appealing to sellers than those buyers with rogue agents who have lost track of what is really happening in today's real estate reality.

Best of success to you,

It's now 2016 and my mother has lived in New Albany Commons since 2006. The sidewalks and patio are cracked and heaving and this is the owners responsibility. Carpet, shower doors, counter tops all cheapest possible...builder grade. Can't hear neighbors side to side but pray to God someone with a child/children doesn't live above you if you have a flat. Ground drainage is the worst. The grassy area behind our condo that faces Hamilton Road is a muddy ankle sucking swamp year round. When it rains hard, the drainage ditch overflows and the most amazing flowing river winds through the backyard and nearly enters the patio doors because it has nowhere else to go. The pool and clubhouse were nice when mother first moved in but with all of the additional units built over the last 7 years, these facilities are much too small for the number of residents. These units are in the Columbus Public School System so that precludes most older children living here but noisy toddlers abound...especially at the pool in the summer. No quiet there. The layouts of the new units aren't very functional and the older one level units have these fantastic gigantic carved out holes in the living room wall for your big deep TV. Mother can't plant anything near her patio because water drips down (no downspout) from the gutter above and creates a small mud pond right next to her patio. The increased traffic noise from Hamilton road and new construction across the street is from Hades.

If you must live here, get a two level unit with your patio facing the pond. Your view won't change, no toddlers shaking the rafters above you, and your back yard slopes downward. Just hope your neighbors with giant dogs pick up the poop.
