Living Downtown Dayton

I LOVE that we can find information at the touch of a button, with our phones or computers – and at any time.  However, sometimes – you do need to VERIFY that the information is current, legit and or accurate.  When looking for housing (rental or to purchase or to sell) and / or commercial properties – did you know that the services of a LOCAL REALTOR could be invaluable?!  Let us be your eyes and ears on the ground, your resource and for verification purposes.

Our Downtown Dayton Partnership has a phenomenal website that is user friendly.  If you browse thru and see anything you would like more information on, we are here to help!   http://www.downtowndayton.org/downtown-living/housing-options/

It is Festival Time in our Area!!

Kicking off the weekend will be the Greek Festival – if you have never attended, you will want to check this out!  Great food and social setting that is in our Grafton Hills Historic District area of town.  HEY – while you are in the area – be sure to check out our listings in Grafton Hills!!  (Harvard Blvd and Belmonte Park)  Greek Festival runs Sept 8 – 10 from 11 AM – 11 PM Fri / Sat and 11 AM – 6 PM on Sunday, at the beautiful Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church located at 500 Belmonte Park North.

 

“The Photographer is Coming”…

While this is a cry we want our Sellers to hear loud and clear – it is not to warn off the enemy; but rather, to help get you prepared for the BEST PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES for your home – to share the BEST PICS possible for peaking Buyer’s interests!!

A good adage to go by: MAXIMIZE SPACE, de-clutter and CLEAN anything that you can physically handle (if necessary, it would be good money to spend and hire some help) and think of this way – when we SELL your home, you are ONE STEP AHEAD in being packed and ready to make your own move!

I found this list to be comprehensive and very helpful: http://boxbrownie.com/pdf/BoxBrownie.com%20-%20Pre%20Photography%20Checklist.pdf

Update to Home Ownership Center Assistance

If your thinking of buying and wondered if their is any down payment assistance available and or credit counseling services to be ready to make your purchase contact them at 937-853-1600

Free Homebuyer Counseling!

The HomeOwnership Center recently received a HUD grant that we can now use to cover the costs of homebuyer counseling. The grant means that first-time homebuyer counseling is free to our clients.

Do you have clients that are not quite ready to buy their first home? Send them to us and we can give them back to you…mortgage ready! So, how does that affect the pricing for the entire First-Time Homebuyer program? Let’s take a look.

Service Cost to Client
First-Time Homebuyer Counseling Only Free
Fist-Time Homebuyer Class – In Person $25
First-Time Homebuyer Class – Online $99

Remember that clients are required to complete the entire First-Time Homebuyer Program (counseling and class) to receive the certificate of completion. If you have any questions, just give us a call at 937.853.1600 or email Joanna Trent at [email protected].
