We have a lot of experience working with new construction projects, and we'd like to put that experience to work for you.
Perhaps you're a buyer searching for an appropriate building site where you will eventually build your custom dream home. Maybe you're interested in buying a just-completed "spec" home directly from a builder. Or maybe you want assistance in thinking through the advantages and disadvantages of buying a modular home.
Whatever the situation, we have helped lots of buyers with new-home construction and we have the knowledge, resources and contacts that will help make your process a good one.
Currently, we are representing two new subdivisions. The first is T. H. Lovdal’s Blackburn Woods, Athens' newest "neighborhood-sized" subdivision. Blackburn Woods features a quiet, "away-from-it-all" location that includes city services and easy access to downtown Athens and Ohio University, with both new homes and vacant lots currently available. The second is Ron White's subdivision on Coe Road in Albany. Ron White of Ron White Builders is constructing his signature by designing custom homes at affordable prices. Only a couple of minutes from Albany and within 15 minutes of Athens in a secluded yet accesible location on a quiet country road, Ron White can build the home of your dreams. Several vacant lots are available including Lot #5 and Lot #4, both listed at $35,000 with septic approval.
The real estate market in our area is characterized by stability—families who have lived and worked in southeast Ohio for generations—and transience. As home to Ohio University, the area’s single largest employer, Athens experiences a fairly significant turnover in the housing market as OU employees move to and from our area.
Staff and agents at the Athens Real Estate Company are specifically trained to work with folks who are relocating to and from southeast Ohio. If you are a buyer who is considering a move to our area, you’ll want to work with an agent who has a deep and abiding knowledge of our local real estate market. Also, because ours is a technologically-savvy office, agents here are practiced experts at working with buyers “long distance.”
We also partner regularly with national relocation companies and understand the special intricacies that often characterize the “triangulation” of buyer, seller and relocation companies.
So whether you are a new in-coming faculty member at Ohio University who wants an introductory driving tour of our towns and neighborhoods, or an outgoing professional who needs help working with a specific relocation company, we can help you. Just give us a call or drop us an email and we’ll assist you right away!
Unfortunately, foreclosures are a fact of life.
At The Athens Real Estate Company, we work actively with sellers who are facing potential foreclosure. We are not attorneys, and we are not bankers, but we are experienced in working cooperatively with both banks and attorneys to help sellers market and sell their homes before they end up at a public sheriff’s auction. Sometimes a property can be liquidated quickly and we are able to help our clients avoid foreclosure—a "win-win" solution for everyone.
Working to avoid foreclosure is not an easy process and we cannot guarantee results. But what we can promise is to seek to understand your situation, help you develop a plan, and put that plan into action.
Another fact of life is that buyers can often benefit from foreclosure situations by purchasing properties at below-market prices. If you are a homebuyer or an investor who wants to learn more about that process, our company subscribes to the nation’s most trafficked real estate foreclosure-tracking website and we can make the information available there to qualified clients. We are also a HUD-certified brokerage, which means that we are licensed to help our clients purchase homes that have foreclosed on by the FHA.
So whether you are a homeowner facing foreclosure or a buyer looking for a good deal, we are able and willing to assist you. Please just give us a call!
