Value City Building - Business Plans

by Victoria Luhring Realty Blog

Norm Eisen of Toledo, has proposed to open a trading center in the former Value City Furniture Store at the Great Eastern Shopping Center.  The Center will be named Stormin Normin, which will allow vendors to sell their goods. 

Concerned were raised by the Plan Commission:
“We already had a request like that, and it was turned down,” said Bacon. “We don’t want anything tacky or fly by night, with someone setting up card tables to sell their wares. But this is supposed to be a higher caliber shop.”

The Plan Commission has given approval, but with conditions, according to Kimberly Grames, the city’s planning, zoning and economic development coordinator.

“The Plan Commission approved a conditional use permit for one year,” said Grames. Among the conditions: Eisen will have to report to the Plan Commission quarterly “to let them know how things are going,” said Grames.

Eisen also plans to provide entertainment at the former Value City Department Store in the Great Eastern Shopping Center, said Grames.

The city’s architectural review committee has yet to review Eisen’s signage, as well as his plans to have other venues outside the building.

“He wants to have garage sale type things outside, and have music events and Put-Put,” said Grames. “The committee has to review that before he can actually put up any signs or do anything outside. I believe he’s starting to move into the building now.”

New Business: Northwest Ohio Beverage
Northwest Ohio Beverage with 30 employees has moved into Northwood, said Grames.  They have moved into the former Treu House of Munch facility on Wales Road, said Grames.  Signs are up and coolers in place for this business.

Statistics Underwater Mortgages

by Victoria Luhring Realty Blog

                Nearly One out of Every Two Mortgages- Underwater in Ohio

According to the Newest Information from CoreLogic Data, if your mortgage is underwater, your not alone. Data from Mortgage Bankers Association & CoreLogics is reporting a dramatic increase in negative equity and a need for Mortgage Loan & Foreclosure Reform. 

Ohioians - Ohio joins California, Florida, New Jersey, Illinois and Arizona as the top states in the nation with the most number of properties either IN or approaching negative equity position, according to the report. Of the 2.2 million outstanding mortgages in Ohio, 45.6 percent - more than one million mortgages - are already underwater or close to it.

"In addition to the 7,000 or so foreclosures each month in Ohio, we have more than one million mortgages in a very fragile position,” said Bill Faith, executive director of the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio, and an advocate for House Bill 3, foreclosure reform legislation. “A slight increase in unemployment could push tens of thousands more into the foreclosure pipeline. A million mortgages on the edge of crisis should push the Ohio Senate to make foreclosure reform the top priority.” 

Contact your Representative. by zip code. Search for your Governor by state.  Send your ideas: be it, short term mortgage adjustments, equity adjustments or extensions till Jobs are Created.  

“With negative equity so high, a sustainable loan modification makes sense for everyone, including the owners of the mortgage.” said Faith. “For lenders, homeowners and communities in Ohio, HB 3 would turn losing into winning.”

A solution and plan needs to be inforced before every state joins the 1 out of 2 Mortgages on the negative equity list.  Creative thinking is needed and your representatives need to hear your ideas and suggestions.

Morgage Interest Rate- October below 5%

by Victoria Luhring Realty Blog

                                Mortgage Interest Rate for Oct. 2009
Mortgage interest rates dropped below the 5 percent threshold in October, enabling buyers and facilitating market activity across the country. Freddie Mac is reporting that the average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional fixed rate loan has dropped to 4.96 percent, down from a September low of 5.06 percent.

"Mortgage interest rates last month were the third lowest on record dating back to 1971," according to Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors. In November, Freddie Mac reported another decrease in the 30-year rate to 4.83 percent. "With the abnormal drop in home prices over the past few years, the price-to-income ratio has fallen below the historic trend line," Yun said. “This is adding to the buying power of the typical family, with affordability conditions this year at the highest on record dating back to 1970, but prices are beginning to flatten and are poised to rise next year."

Good News for Toledo Jeep

by Victoria Luhring Realty Blog

               Good News for the Jeep High Resale Value

The Kelly Blue Book's newest Study noted the Jeep Line up including the Toledo Liberty and Wrangle to have highest resale value amoung Domestic Brands.  Last year not one U.S Brand made this list.  Kelly predicted that current models of the Jeep Vehicles will be worth 35.7 % in 5 years, which would make it the sixth-best value amoung poplar brands. 

 The 2010 Jeep line was the only U.S.-owned brand to make the vehicle pricing service's top 10.

We all know the downturn in the economy has hit the real estate market hard.    Kelley officials said, "Consumers are feeling the pinch not just in the depreciation of their home but also in the value of their vehicles." 

"It's great news for us," said Dan Henneman.  Jeep vehicles, especially the Wrangler, remain popular with buyers. Because of that, they don't last long in classified and Internet listings, he added. Among Wrangler models, the four-door Rubicon is among the most popular.

Officials of Kelley Blue Book said their projections are based on current vehicle data, market conditions for each vehicle, competition in each segment, expectations of the economy, and input from Kelley statisticians, economists, and pricing analysts.

 The firm's projections for Jeep offered a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy report for Chrysler.

 The 2010 Ford Taurus ranked as the best resale value among full-size cars and the Chevrolet Camaro SS was tops among high-performance cars.
