    I am always excited about reporting good news in the  Avon, Ohio area.  Even if it is slightly old news. But I just wanted to share if you have shopped in Avon for groceries at Marcs? Well if you haven’t been there, you are missing out on a great opportunity.  This store opened a few months ago on Detroit road just across from the Avon Commons shopping area and I have to tell you I am impressed.  This Marcs is well stocked with groceries to the level that it can compete easily with other local groceries in the area as far as product and brand choices are concerned in the major/common food needs.  No it is not tight isles and overstocked spaces.  There is ample room for moving carts even during it’s busiest days (which appears to be everyday).  The wait in lines is pretty s hort and ...

  Frozen pipes aren't just an inconvenience.  An Average of a quarter-million families have their homes damaged and their lives disrupted each winter...... all because of water pipes that freeze An eighth-inch (three millimeter) crack in a pipe can spew up to 250 gallons (946 liters) of water a day, destroying floors, furniture, and personal property.  Both plastic (PVC) and copper pipes may burst. Before the cold hits.......... INSULATE pipes in crawl spaces and attics.  These exposed pipes are most susceptible to freezing.  Remember:  The more insulation you use, the better protected your pipes will be. HEAT TAPE or thermostatically-controlled heat cables can be used to wrap pipes.  Be sure to use products approved by an independent testing organization, such as Underwriters Laborator...

Home sales in Avon, Ohio have shown an increase over the last 30 days.  Current data supplied by the multiple listing services has indicated that sales over last month have increased 8.3%.  While the number of homes in pending status have shown an increase of 200%, yes that is 200%.    While this increase in pending sales could be argued, "Well Stan that is just a difference of 15 homes from 5 homes". The point is this. There is a trend a brewing here with people making offers now on homes (and it is in the middle of winter) And this trend has not hit Spring yet. Look at the jump from November to December this year compared to the jump last year. There is a big spike this year. While on this graph below we are showing that home price differences from listing to sold price is about 93%. ...

As a coach and parent I have been notorious for taking the "go get them" approach to sports at times.  It can be hard especially when you coach them and you feel parents look at the coach as if "what are doing with my kid out there".  But I really feel I learned some thing this past season of coaching soccer. And that is parents love to see you be there for the kids for learning the fun of the sport, learning to team play, build friendships and lastly, pointed out to that child on the field or after the game for what they did on a positive level. I coach my girls micro level soccer team and assist on my sons 11 under team and I can see when parents respect you more for the above mentioned.     A year ago I had the experience of having a fantastic baseball coach for my twin boys on a coa...

  The National Weather Service in Cleveland is calling for highs in the lower 90s throughout the week. And while the hot and dry weather may cause some to crank their air conditioning units, the heat is pretty bearable compared to temperatures lingering over mid-Atlantic states. But I would have to say it sure has been hard to work.  Getting in and out of your car.  Going to homes without AC or let alone a window open can be very unbearable.  So my question to you is, " How have you been doing in this temperature?  What methods have you taken to keep the heat down? By Friday a cold front is expected to sweep through the region. I am looking forward to that.

We Buy Houses Ohio: Selling a home is similar to a project that has to be planned and executed with the help of team members. Oh yes, you will need assistance of some kind since you have not appointed a real estate broker for your home sale.

     With all the new construction of lovely neighborhoods of homes popping up in Avon, Ohio, it's no wonder that the little town, which was not too long ago just a small rural community known for its greenhouse growers, and once dubbed as "The Antique Headquarters of Northeast Ohio," has now shown that Avon is also quite the place to live and raise a family!  Home buyers relocating from all over the country, and from all over the greater Cleveland area, are making the move to check out what all the bustling excitement is about.        Not only are the highly rated Avon Schools a great draw, but now there's so much to see and do right in Avon...and did I mention the shopping?!!  Avon Commons and surrounds offers a number of major department stores, a fine furniture store, and a great se...
