Your personal residence is more than just an investment, it is your home. If I were to assume that both homes equally met your needs regarding size, layout, storage, deferred maintenance, if any, parcel size, mechanicals etc, then we could talk apples for apples. In that instance, I would probably have to mention Beachwood's strong tax base, community amenities, and highly rated school system. No one has a crystal ball. People can prepare elaborate ptojections, but all they are are projections. Lastly, please don't dismiss the potential emotional impact of moving into your parents' home. If you feel warm and fuzzy about it, great. Otherwise, maybe best to sell. ... more

Lising shows as PENDING/EXPIRED. This usually means that the offer is "in the works" and probably will close.

Please contact me for similar properties that are currently active.

In addition to the tax value of a home, the property tax amount will depend on the location of the home, and if there are any additional tax assessments on the property.

Do you have a specific home in mind?

Please give me a call to discuss...

Not sure why you would want to limit yourself by only looking at FSBO or online auctions (REO). Have you considering working with a local Realtor as your buyers agent. They can help you view all the inventory available, including FSBO and help you find what you are looking for.

Best of luck.

I'm not sure if you will be able to view this graph, but all indications are that sales and prices are starting to move upward in Brecksville. If you are thinking of selling or buying, now may be the time to do so.

If you can't open this or see the chart, call or email me anytime.

Thank you,
Duane Johnston,

Don Tepper answered:

I can't comment on your local conditions, which is obviously one major variable. You'd need a local Realtor to advise you on current conditions and possible changes in the future.

But a lot of the decision goes beyond that variable. For example, how eager are you to sell? If you're really, really eager, then (despite market conditions) this might be a good time to sell. On the other hand, if you're not highly motivated--if you're just "testing the waters"--then the odds are far less likely that now is a good time.

External factors are important. Interest rates are very, very low right now. That's an argument in favor of considering selling. They're not likely to go much lower and they'll probably go up slightly in the next year or so. But even a year from now, or two years, they're still likely to be quite good.

As for time of year (January/February versus July/August, for instance), that depends on your local market. In some markets, early spring is when the "season" begins. In other cases, it's June (after kids get out of school, allowing people to move and get their kids into a new school at the beginning of the school year). In many areas, though, it's one or the other--though houses certainly sell in the fall and winter, that's usually not the most active time of the season. A good local Realtor can tell you what the pattern is in your area.

There's also the question of the condition of your home. Buyers generally are looking for homes in really good condition. So if your home needs some maintenance and repairs, it'd probably be a better idea not to sell (or put your home on the market) until you've done those repairs.

All of those are factors to consider, and explain why the answer to your question could be either "yes" or "no."

Hope that helps.

I would think that the standard 5-7% would be the norm, but you can negotiate! never hurts to try, but if you find a good Realtor, don't lose them over a commission squabble!

The preferred method for this is to run C/A down from a new 3rd floor forced air furnace. They run small ducts into all the areas you want A/C. The can get fairly costly, but that is what they do in the older homes. I would call a reputable HVAC person to come out and give you some thoughts, advice, and estimates....or call a couple of them. It depends upon other factors as well. I just showed a home last week that has C/A throughout the 2nd floor and kitchen, but uses the boiler/radiator system for their heat. Asbestos is a problem if it is exposed to the air around it and breaks off. If it is wrapped securely, it should be fine, but that is, again, an issue to ask the contractor. If you need the names of some reputable HVAC contractors, please contact me and I will give the names to you via your email. ( don't have to buy or sell a house with me to get the name of a contractor!)

Hi there!

I'm sorry to report no. If there were a way to project value we would all be rich!!! Nobody knows what a market will or won't do. It's nearly impossible to forecast two years from now.... much less 15.

All the best!

Find a local Realtor and ask that they become your buyers agent. Or if that is you property, you would to know what your property is worth.

As a buyer, majority of the time using an agent will not cost you anything. Ask for referrals and references. Good luck! ... more

Hello Borron,
I will send you a detailed report on what has rented in the last 6 months through the MLS so you can get an idea. This is a popular area, and there are many homes at great prices. The taxes, however, are a bit higher than other communities, so you will need to build that into your rent.
email me directly at :

I will send you sponsored (by me) Listingbook account so you can search the MLS just like a realtor with no restrictions. I will also send you the MLS report.

Thanks, Doris & Michael Wright

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
I think it will depend on your local market, however, I can tell you that here in New Jersey the market IS coming back. It's still something we have to look at on a town by town basis, but in many communities, especially the more 'up scale' communities, prices have stabilized and both the number of sales and the average sale price have gone up. Number of sales has increased fairly significantly and average sale price slightly. Historically, where the more affluent communities lead, the others follow.

We are not expecting a surge, but a slow and steady return to a more normal market is anticipated.
