Nice area. Seems to be holding value. FYI, Realtors cannot discuss demographics so you may have to find that information elsewhere.

Hi Shirley,
Thank you for your inquiry. There are many areas that meet your qualifications. I live and work in the Northwest area of Central Ohio. I can strongly recommend Grandview Heights, Upper Arlington, Clintonville, Worthington, Dublin, Powell, Westerville or Hilliard. Each of these communities has a long list of positives and a unique personality for the family lifestyle offered. I would be happy to review each or any with you and your daughter. My suggestion is a phone call in the near future. Drop me an e-mail with a number that is comfortable for you. My e-mail address is If you need references, review my profile on Linkedin, Facebook or Twitter.

Susanne Novak answered:
Hi Carl, some lenders will ask the borrower (you) to sign a promissory note as part of a short sale acceptance. The lender is losing more than the $31,000 (fees, interest, legal expenses etc.), and is just trying to offset their losses. You could check with their loss mitigation department if they would be willing to accept a lump sum of cash in lieu of you signing a promissory note.

Please note, cash contributions and/or the amount and terms of the promissory note are negotiable. If you fee that the amount they are asking you to pay will create another hardship for you, then substantiate your statement and suggest a different amount. The agent who has helped you negotiate the short sale may be able to assist with that as well. Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me for more details if necessary.

Maureen McCabe answered:
I am not 100% sure since some of the restaurants based in Columbus have been around a long time including White Castle, Bob Evans and Wendy's. Or maybe it is not all that long for Wendy's and Bob Evan's. Wendy's started in the 60's or 70's.

I know OSU business school has a business incubator which is responsible for some of the restaurant chains that are based in Central Ohio. I think of it as a restaurant incubator but I think it is just that a lot of restaurants are the businesses that have been started because of graduates / students in the business school. I believe I read the two biggest "Philly Steak" kind of chains were based out of Columbus or had roots in Columbus because of OSU.

A Florida chain relocated their headquarters to Central Ohio (Worthington) this past winter.

Maureen McCabe answered:
The older Columbus suburbs inside 270 are Worthington, Upper Arlington, Grandview Heights and Bexley. There are some itty bitty gems too, Minerva Park, Riverlea, Marble Cliff.... Dublin, Hilliard, Gahanna and Westerville are outside 270 and although they have charming old downtowns (or an Uptown in Westerville's case) they are still growing communities. New Albany is popular for those that can afford it. Outside Franklin County Powell and the Lewis Center area in Olentangy County are popular. I work on the north side primarily so these are the suburbs that come to mind. The BIA Parade of Homes is coming up and it is in Grove City this year. ... more
