Coming soon! Little Bear Village Condominiums remaining land has been purchased by a custom builder and is being marketed by myself through the Builder Developer Division of HER Realtors. Please call 614-221-7400 extension 5260 for more information. I will also be able to explain special financing options that make these condominiums and the lifestyle very affordable.

Since January 2013 Little Bear Village has seen great growth and very few lots remain even for single family homes. Prices of condominiums and homes range from $300,000 up. The condominiums still have golf course lots available. These condos are a rare find with full basements and extra large garages. The condo lifestyle is not for everyone, however, these are very unique and have there place among buyers. Once we start construction we do not expect them to last long. This is a great location being close to shopping and highways without being too close.

Contact a realtor that is SFR certified (short sale and foreclosure resource) and look into the agent setting the house up for short sale with the may be possible to present an offer. The agent can list and present the offer to the bank on your behalf and possibly make the sale happen before the foreclosure gets processed.

But again, contact an agent that knows the process and can initiate the process.

Good Luck!

Need more information or a contact? call or email and I will see what I can do to connect you with a local SFR agent!

It was 'bought back,' now with FNMA. Your Buyer's Realtor, representing you, can look into it for you.

Cristin, You definitely need somebody to help you who has access to MLS since many of these properties are not available. If you were working with a buyers' agent they would be sending you listings of all availble properties that matched your criteria, including foreclosures. That list would be way more current and save you a lot of time.

You may just be starting to look but if you have been looking for a while and you want to dive in deeper find a good buyer' s agent who can help you. BTW, like most websites, you can search for homes on my website. And since the info is drawn from MLS only available properties will show up.

I am very familiar with that area and have helped several people buy homes there. If you just want to talk w/no obligation feel free to contact me. I'll answer any questions you have.

This property is still available... it is a short sale from Fifth Third. Did you have any additional questions about it? One thing to keep in mind about a short sale is that if you are seeking the tax credit that it may not be the best type of property to ensure that you will qualify for the tax credit. I have seen it take up to 120 days and in some cases longer for the bank to come back with a response on whether to accept the short sale. Unfortunately, if that happened in this case it wouldn't allow you to close before the required June 30, 2010 deadline.

If the tax credit isn't a concern or is not paramount to your home buying criteria, short sales can be a great opportunity for patient buyers who are looking for a good buy. They are quite a bit more challenging than a traditional sale between a buyer and a seller but do offer some good opportunities.

Please feel free to give me a call at 614-750-2144 or email me at if you would like to discuss this property or any other property you may have seen or would be interested in taking a look at anything you have seen.

Carol Toronto answered:
Hello Jennifer, your answer (as the other posts state) is; no it is not a Maronda, it is an M/I Schottenstein home. I see that you are in Harrisburg NC, if you are relocating you will want to talk to an accredited Realtor who can introduce you to the Central Ohio area and answer all your questions. If you are looking for a Realtor to assist you with all the current and accurate information, please visit our website. Best of luck in your search. ... more

This is not a listing,it is a Realty Trac posting. Realty Trac,,etc. are not listing sites,they just publish notices of default 7 foreclosure from the public records. most of these houses are not even on the market yet. For example,Realty Trac has 196 foreclosures,in Slidell,LA where I live--the MLS has 29!The prices are totally inaccurate--they are usually just the amount of an outstanding loan balance.If you are interested in purchasing a foreclosure,please work with an experienced agent in your area. an agent can let yu know when these properties are actually available and help you work through the complicated process of purchasing a foreclosure. ... more

Suzanne Champion answered:
Hi Colette, there is a HOA fee associated with this home, said to be $145 per year.

Are you interested in seeing this home or any others? I would be pleased to show it to you - I can show you any home that is listed for sale. It is best to work with one agent (such as myself) who works on your behalf to get you what you want, and no commission is charged to you for this service. Would you like a short, free no-obligation buyer consultation? Especially if you have not purchased a home before, it is a great way to get started. Please let me know how I can assist you further. ... more

Suzanne Champion answered:
Thanks everyone - BTW we already determined that this sale was cancelled, and I've got a handle on the REOs in the area, we're covered.

It is so unfortunate that Realty Trac has so much misinformation, because there are lots of people interested in bank-owned homes. Buyers need to come to us for more accurate information! ... more

Brittany Simonelli answered:
I did not address your question about paying the taxes-you are ultimately the party responsible as they could become a lien. You will need to pay the bill or increase your mortgage payment to cover the difference.

The sale price should have been used at the least and the current rate in your area by the title company.
