What I want for Christmas.
What I want for Christmas.
Not exactly Cleveland, but a peek inside Bryan Ferry’s London abode.
This is one of Cleveland’s great urban areas where one can find many contemporary, new construction homes as well as refurbished classics.
Well, well, well…look who’s #5!
Fall is a beautiful time of year in Cleveland Heights. Make sure your house stands out from the crowd. Being so close to the hospitals, universities, etc. the Heights is more of a year-round market than typical suburban communities. In other words – there are ALWAYS buyers out there!
Take note, I want one under the tree this year. AND no grass to mow.
The Women’s Council of the Cleveland Museum of Art is hosting an event on 10/20 with Steve Litt of the Plain Dealer and Chris Ronayne of University Circle Inc. to discuss this most dynamic and important area of Cleveland. Free and open to the public, but reservations necessary. Click the link below for more information. Begins at 10am at the Museum.
Plans were just unveiled for Cleveland’s new Medical Mart. The pixelated windows are to resemble DNA.
Not that I’m trying to get rid of people, but a NYC weekend getaway condo would be nice, no?
Stock up on your breath mints! The Cleveland Garlic Festival will be held at Shaker Square on the 11th & 12th of September. Vampires beware.
Boom Modern, formerly on Lee Road in Cleveland Heights, has closed up shop and is now selling exclusively online. Featuring treasures from the past as well as wonderful, new creations, this furniture store has been one of the coolest vendors in the Heights. I wish them luck and hope the business continues to flourish!
What this doesn’t mention is that Cleveland actually came in 17th, scoring high for quality of health care (duh) as well as cost of living. Cleveland scored lower for average woman’s income (boo hiss).
According to the ‘experts’ this is what buyers are looking for in today’s market. Imagine that – buyers prefer smaller homes! What a difference from the McMansions of several years ago. Read more…
Just reduced! Darling home in the Heights. $95,000. Clean, great details, nice ‘Pottery Barn’ colors throughout. Eat in kitchen, hardwoods. A great buy!
For you investors of multifamily properties…the rent figure seems LOW. Perhaps it’s due to the proximity to the hospitals & universities, but ‘round here you’re looking at $800/month for a 2 bedroom for something decent. In any case, you are in a much better position to get a higher amount if you offer these sough-after amenities.
Cleveland’s theater district continues to grow and improve. 2nd only to NYC folks. A force to be reckoned with for sure!
Except for that whole money thing…
Cleveland State continues to grow and influence the area just east of downtown. It will be interesting to see if the area can absorb this many apartment units.
For seller’s who have not been able to sell, it’s still a good climate for renting. Especially in these parts, with medical residents, fellows, etc. any seller who is having a hard time getting what they want should consider taking on a tenant for a year or two. Clearly, many owners never planned on becoming landlords, but ‘it is what it is’ as they say. Better some money than nothing! And if you’re hesitant to manage a rental yourself, contact a Realtor who’s into property management (hint hint nudge nudge). It may not be an ideal situation, but it’s better than a home being empty.
Awesome lakefront home for sale. Listed at $525,000. 4,000+ square feet. Listed by The McKeon Group @ Howard Hanna.
Saturday May 22nd is the Cleveland Asian Festival. So excited for this! Not sure how I’m going to down a bowl of pho while walking the streets. I might have to stick to summer rolls. In any case, I’m sure the boys will love the sumo wrestling and dragon dancing. This area of town is such a treasure that so many don’t know of – or don’t venture to. In any case, check it out and bring your appetite ‘cause the food down here is soooooooooo damn good.
So this is the most recent “Cleveland Tops the List of Worst You-Name-It'” poll from Forbes. Clearly, someone has an agenda here. I mean – COME ON. Thanks for making my job more difficult, losers.
Heehaw! Not that things are great out there. Prices are still in the pits and buyers are having a harder time that ever getting approved. Still, it’s nice to see some product moving along there. For investors, it’s the wild west out there. Those who focus on solid streets/neighborhoods are sure to come out ahead. Spring should be interesting, for sure. We’ll see if things come to a grinding halt after the 4/30 deadline.
