I have long been a fan of Pinnacle condos in Downtown Cleveland. If you haven’t had the pleasure of walking the lobby or gazing out of one of the Pent House units into the great wide open, it is something I strongly recommend. This building represents North East Ohio’s premier condominium, hand down. The views, the quality in construction, the location and amenities make it hard for other condos to compete.
The new construction phase is more or less gone, all but a few pent houses over $1million have been sold and often resold and the association is in the hands of the owners .
Even though these condos seem to be in a class all their own, they have not been immune to the market and for the first time, some very attractive units are being…

Ohio City is arguably Cleveland’s trendiest and most established areas for entertainment, dining and shopping. It seems as though every time you turn around there is another restaurant, boutique or brewery opening up. The latest addition is Market Garden, a 3,000 square foot cobblestoned American beer garden across from sister brewery Bier Market.
This area is already a huge destination for shopping mainly due to the West Side Market’s appeal as well as Dave’s Super Market for local residents weekly groceries. Market Square is home to Great Lakes Brewery, Flying Fig and ABC Tavern to name a few.
It is no surprise that a trendy and upscale entertainment district such as this would feature one of Cleveland’s top Luxury Condo Developments.…

How do we sell this city? This question has come up over in Cleveland by its leadership. When I am consulted on this topic I keep telling people the same thing but I am still waiting for someone to listen. You can't sell someone on investing in real estate in a particular area or market with some gimmicky add campaign. Buying a home is not like buying a candy bar or a time share.
Unlike those other things, you simply can't sell a home buyer, you can only share information about a property and take them to it. If the house is not right…

We love dogs so I will try to bring my George, although he does get startled with big crowds :)

NCHAMP was National City Bank's version of this program and since the merger, it has virtually gone away completely. PNC showed a bit of faith in downtown, last week when they took a chance with Water Street Condominiums and re-instated the NCHAMP program.
That means, if you are considering purchasing a condo from the developer, and the current rate is 5.5%, by using the NCHAMP program, you will lock in a rate of 4% for 30yrs.

I know everyone feels like everyone else is getting steals on properties that have been seized by the bank, picking up property at pennies on the dollar. Well, some of this is true but its not the entire story.
First of all the definition...
A short sale is an agreement by the bank, who holds a seller's mortgage, to take less for the house than what the seller owes. Since going through the entire process of forclosing on a property is actually extremely expensive to banks and often results in a property being vacant and even vandalized, a short sale is seen as a…
