(Ada-Cascade) to buy, based on price per square foot.

Price per square foot is a great leveler, if two homes are

priced similarly they should be very comparable in amenities.

These homes might need major repair work done, such

as new kitchens and baths, roofs, new plumbing, electrical &

other major mechanicals.  They may have dated decor,  an

odd floor plan, or additions/add-ons that are not what most

people are looking for.

Summer buying season is on and heating up in Forest Hills,

64 sold homes and 85 pending sales in the last month.

Average sold price  = $ 285,802


Pricing seems to have stabilized in Forest Hills School District.

If you are willing to do repairs and update a home, there are still some

good buys at historically low interest rates, though rates and mortgage

requirements are rising.  The homes in the most up-to-date condition

sell the fastest, as most buyers do not want to do repairs or updates.

WARNING: Some of these homes may be bank owned foreclosures,

short sales and not habitable as is or available for a mortgage

in present condition.
