Congratulations! You're ready to buy your first home. If you are like most newbies, you might be likely to ask family and friends for advice. A word to the wise ... be careful. Folks with even the best intentions can get the line between fact and fiction confused when it comes to real estate transactions. That is why it is best to save your questions for a professional.
Our team of REALTORS® has compiled this list of the most common home-buying myths to set the record straight when it comes to buying a house.
One of Ohio's most popular car shows is returning to the Mansfield area this Saturday, August 26. You've still got time to polish up your ride for the big show. The Heart of the City Cruise In – presented by the Downtown Mansfield organization – is always one of Mansfield's most well-attended special events, in part because it grows bigger and better with each passing year. There are activities during the show for every member of the family, to go along with all of the great food and community fun you'll enjoy throughout the day. Our REALTORS® are here to give you the inside scoop on what to expect from this year's Heart of the City Cruise In.
When many Americans think of wine and beer production, California comes to mind. However, Mansfield, Ohio residents know a different story. Before prohibition, Ohio was a major wine and beer producer. While local companies don't produce nearly as much wine and beer as they did in decades past, a new generation of vintners and brewers are re-establishing lost winery and brewery traditions.
Our REALTORS® want to share information about a few of the wineries and breweries in the Mansfield area. They are important to our local economy and they provide exciting refreshment, dining, and entertainment alternatives for people owning homes in Mansfield.
Nothing says summer in Ohio more than going to a local county fair. Whether it's the 3-Cs (carnival rides, cotton candy and cattle) you like or the feeling of camaraderie experienced by attending a community event, county fairs come alive with attractions and activities for all ages. The Richland County Fair in Mansfield, Ohio is no different.
Toward the end of every summer, the Richland County Fair provides the perfect place to catch up with old friends and make some new ones too. There are fair events geared toward every member of the family, and our REALTORS® are excited to share all of the attractions at this year's Richland County Fair.
