Originally built in 1890, Vivian Lofts has just been revamped by 1422 Elm, LLC into chic loft space. This 4-story stone building is a contributing structure in the OTR landscape. The developer had the vision and passion to maintain historic elements, while adding all of the modern features buyers are looking for. He wanted to create a product that stood out from the rest of the condos downtown by integrating elements from Cincinnati’s history into each nook and cranny. The design intent for this building was to save the important architectural features, such as plaster walls, winding wood staircase, exposed masonry, stone facade, bay windows, and decorative detailing. The developer went above and beyond to reclaim bits of Cincinnati history to add to the already unique character of Vivian Lofts. To accomplish this, the developer brought in barrister cabinets, wooden mantles, newel posts in kitchen, and more.

5 Reasons You Should Sell Before the New Year

The holiday season is upon us. You were barely up from your turkey coma before Christmas decorations were out. Many homeowners wait to sell or, if they have their homes on the market, take it off the market, until after the holidays. If you are considering whether you should list your home now or wait until after the new year, keep reading. Here are some GREAT reasons to list NOW!

1. Staging Opportunities – Decorations and staging in one! Homes always look better during the holidays. So, put up the tree, string the lights, and put out the For Sale sign!

1.gif

…but… what if someone wants to see our home in the middle of a family get-together?

2. Control the Show – You have ultimate control over showings and when agents and potential buyers can be in your home.

2.gif

…but… there aren’t any buyers out there!

3.gif

3. Serious inquiries only – You’re likely to get a buyer quickly who is READY to move in. Those just perusing the housing market are more likely to look during the spring market.

4. The Show Must Go On – Companies don’t stop working for the holidays, meaning relocations are still happening and relocation buyers are looking for a place like yours… NOW.

4.gif

…and… last but not least, let’s talk about the financial aspect.

5. Inventory is down during this time of year, meaning competition is also down. Less competition means a better price for you.

5.gif

So beat the spring market and give us a call!

FOCUS ON: Oakley

Population: 10,794

Oakley Cincinnati Neighborhoods

Oakley is vibrant, lively, yet more affordable than some nearby neighborhoods.  So much to offer including charm, excellent business district, and convenient location.  A mecca for singles, couples, or families of any age.  Oakley borders Pleasant Ridge, Madisonville, Norwood, and Hyde Park.

Oakley Square hosts numerous local shops and is anchored by the historical 20th Century Theatre. The theater was built in 1941 and is a distinctive Oakley landmark with its 72-foot tower rising over the business district. The deteriorating theater was slated for demolition in the early 1990s, but was spared due to its historical significance and is finding a new life as a concert and special events venue.

The Geier Esplanade, commonly known as Oakley Square, was created when two parcels of land were acquired in 1927 and 1932 and were converted into green space. It is situated in the heart of Oakley on Madison Road. Through the generosity of the Geier family, flowers and bulbs are planted each year to beautify this small parcel of land in memory of Mr. Fred Geier and Mr. Philip O. Geier, Sr. Oakley Square hosts numerous events, including Oakley After Hours on the second Friday of every month April – September, 6pm – 10pm where live music, kids entertainment, guest vendors and local businesses all share the spotlight for an evening of great family fun!

There is so much development going on in Oakley right now, both commercial and residential.  The Oakley Community Council (oakleynow.com) works closely with commercial and private residents to keep things moving in a positive direction.

Like the rest of Cincinnati, we definitely have a strong seller’s market in Oakley with low inventory and rising home values. We are continuing to pick up the pace in the second half of 2016, so if you want to find a place in one of Cincinnati’s premier neighborhoods, let us know! The Finn Team is the #2 REALTOR® in Oakley, and we’d love to help you find your place in the this fun and walkable neighborhood!

We already have homes on the market here and all over Cincinnati, so call us today for a private showing!
