Steve, it is tough to predict what, if any, appreciation you will see on property in the future. With the great interest rates we are seeing at this time in NE Ohio, and if you are in a position to buy, I would highly consider doing so. I ran into someone at the bank just last week who bought in this area and so far is very happy with the area. I would be very interested in speaking with you further to see if you feel I could be of help representing you in your purchase. You can contact me direct at 216-276-4297 or by visiting my website below.
