after months of searching, negotiation, and processing, i finally move in my home last month. i totally saw >40 houses in this area. for some houses i only spent 15 min, for some i visit 3 times. i am pretty satisfied with it so far.
my home was built on 1989, ranch style, in one of the best neighborhood in this area, it has 1,800 square feet on the ground, and a furnished full basement. last owner built a suite in basement, so now it has 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms. i like the open floor plan, it has a huge great room with a fireplace, high cathedral ceiling and two sky light. there is also a closed porch. a 2-level deck with hot tube. a private 0.6 acre yard.
the house was maintained very well, i hire two house inspection company to inspect it, they told me it is nice. i move in without spending any money to fix it.
so far i just settle in. there is still piles of cloth on the floor. i put together an entertainment center in the great room, bought a DVD player, toshiba, only cost $60. i had a 200-CD changer, amplifier, TV, VCR, speakers before. i also set up a home gym, with the equipment i got before: a trek 2200 road bike, a bike trainer, a vasa swimming trainer, several weight bench, plus the treadmill i just bought. there is also chin up bar in the basement, one of my favorite workout.
there are also two wet bars in the house, last owner even left several bottle of champain. i guess i want to thank all the ranchers for the help in the past. so welcome to my home if you are visiting northeastern ohio in the future!

Eugene, you are one evil f--ker.

everybody tells me that ohio is the right place to buy a home, because home price goes up and down elsewhere, only in ohio, you can expect steady home value increase.
in movie "vanilla sky", people like to say "i am from ohio, i am nobody", but ohio produced 8 US presidents, the most among any states, i also heard almost every US president won ohio, which is an accurate indication of presidential election. interesting.....

Thanks, Michael. Ever since you reduced your participation in MD, I had to work twice harder to keep things under control here.
