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. (no...you don't have to buy or sell a house with me to get the name of a contractor!)

Average days on the market, do vary based on price, location, condition, upgrades, etc., for a specific area, any local agent/realty office can help you, they all have access to the same information.... more
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!
Good Afternoon Nash;
A bank owned property has already cleared the foreclosure process; so, once the bank has agreed in writing to accept your offer, the property can close in a very reasonable time (i.e. 30 days).
On a short sale, the offer is submitted to the lender for consideration. There is no guarantee that your offer will be accepted; and there is no upper time limit on how long this process could take. It might just well be 6 months or even longer.
As far as which is more secure to buy, they both are. At the closing table you will receive clear title to the property and you will receive a title insurance policy to secure this.... more
I just posted a video on my Blog that sheds some light on the failure of HAMP:

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
We have some great CDCs in Cincinnati and these non-profits do an amazing job in our neighborhoods. Price Hill Will is one I am most familiar with. They have don't an excellent job of rehabbing homes and selling them. They recently took on the project of the Robinson Apartment Building now called The Elberon. This building is a historic building that was beautiful at one time and has deteriorated. Once Price Hill Will is finished, I am sure it will be beautiful again.... more
