You May Not Be The ONLY Buyer I Have For That Home
You and I both know I work with a number of buyers at any given time.  Some in a "BUY NOW" mode, others in a more leisurely manner waiting for that perfect home that meets all their criteria to come on the market.

HOWEVER, there's a risk that a new listing is going to have interest from more than one buyer we're working with.  And this is ESPECIALLY true with our patio home/ranch condo niche.  At any given time, there are probably less than 100 patio homes for … (10 comments)

Pros and Cons of Cincinnati Patio Homes
Cincinnati area patio homes are a specialty of ours.  We've spent years scouring the area to identify these pocket communities that offer low maintenance lifestyles!  What's not to like about having someone else mow your lawn when it's 95 degrees outside?  Or clear the snow off your driveway and sidewalk when it's 20 degrees and blustery?
But we'll have to admit, there are trade offs when choosing Cincinnati patio homes as your residence.
 Typically patio homes are on smaller lots than a "regular" single family home.  That means that SOMETIMES the view is like this:

One Question Cincinnati Patio Home Buyers Need To Ask
Maybe you're moving from an area of the country where patio homes are common, and you KNOW that's exactly what you want when you move to Cincinnati.  The low maintenance lifestyle homes.  The ability to turn the key, lock the door and hit the highway for a long weekend, or even until snow season is over, and KNOW you don't have to worry about your home.  Someone else will take care of the lawn until the next time you put the key in the lock.

So what's the ONE question you … (28 comments)

Why Do Cincinnati Patio Home HOA Fees Vary So Much?
You've been searching our site for Cincinnati patio homes and the variance in HOA fees has caught your eye hasn't it?  Why such a big range in patio home HOA fees?  Why only $80 a month over here and over $300 a month over there?  

Well the answer is "it depends"!  Wait, that's not a real answer you say?  Well the answer is a bit muddier than you'd probably like, but part of it comes back to definitions.  Fact is, there's not a clear definition of exactly WHAT a patio … (26 comments)

Interested in searching Cincinnati patio homes for sale?  You've found it difficult haven't you?  Because there's no patio home category in our local MLS, it's a bits and pieces endeavor.  Maybe the listing agent calls it a patio home, maybe they don't.  And the trouble is compounded by the fact that Cincinnati patio homes are called names other than patio homes!  A Cincinnati patio home might be called a lifestyle home, a ranch condo, a villa home, or a collection of other names!  But frankly, whatever the builders want to call them, we specialize … (6 comments)

WANTED:  Cincinnati/Warren County Ohio Area Patio Home Sellers! It happened again yesterday, TWICE!  We had buyers call about specific Cincinnati area patio home communities, one in Mason and another in Loveland.  Neither community had a patio home for sale!  And looking back through the last few years offerings have been scarce in both of these patio home communities!
And obviously there are some reasons for that:
Patio home communities are typically small (e.g. 25-40 homes) Patio home buyers move less often (why would you with someone to take care of your lawn?) The overall real estate market for the last few … (10 comments)
