Beavercreek and Kettering Ohio Average Home Prices I recently completed research for a home buyer relocating from the Cincinnati Ohio area (Go Reds) and house hunting in Beavercreek and Kettering Ohio. The average home sold price per square foot is interesting statistics to keep in mind when searching for homes for sale to make sure the home chosen is a good investment. According to the Dayton Area Board of Realtors Multiple Listing Service, the average price per square foot for homes sold in Beavercreek 5/1/13 - 5/15/14 is $88.55/square foot and in Kettering $72.89/square foot. Happy house hunting! Christina

Kettering, Ohio is the largest suburb of Dayton and is probably one of the most well known.  Named for the famous inventor and philanthropist Charles F. Kettering probably one of its most notable citizens. The area now known as Kettering was first settled by John Patterson Sr. in 1798 and in 1841 became Van Buren Township.  I wasn't till June of 1955 that Van Buren Township became Kettering, Ohio. Employers in the area include: GE Money, Kettering Medical Center, Delphi Corp. (previously Delco), Wilmer Hale (the 22nd largest law firm in the US), Reynolds and Reynolds and lets not forget Limited Brands, Inc. (dba Victoria's Secret).    Kettering seems to contribute a number of personalities to the sporting world this is just a short list, sorry to anyone I left out:  John Paxson - forme...

1.    Tax breaks. The U.S. Tax Code lets you deduct the interest you pay on your mortgage, property taxes you pay, and some of the costs involved in buying your home.  2.    Gains. Between 1998 and 2002, national home prices increased at an average of 5.4 percent annually. And while there's no guarantee of appreciation, a 2001 study by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSÒ found that a typical homeowner has approximately $50,000 of unrealized gain in a home.   3.    Equity. Money paid for rent is money that you'll never see again, but mortgage payments let you build equity ownership interest in your home.   4.    Savings. Building equity in your home is a ready-made savings plan. And when you sell, you can generally take up to $250,000 ($500,000 for a married couple) as gain without owi...
