Mount Vernon Ohio Building Fire

by Sam Miller

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — A commercial building located at 201 South Main Street on the corner of Gambier Street caught fire this morning between 6:30 and 6:45 a.m.  This building is the location of Bodi N Balance Fitness and it was previously the location of Focus Studio and Ben Franklin.  The fire is believed to have started in the basement of the building and spread through the building and eventually flames penetrated the roof.  The fire department has been doing everything they can to contain the fire and minimize the damage to the newly renovated Mount Vernon Nazarene University Art Center which is located next door.

by Sam Miller


We are trying something a little different with our blog today...we are providing the Knox County Ohio real estate market update in video format.  Today's market update highlights 3 different topics:

  1. Foreclosure Moratorium and the potential good and bad a moratorium can create.
  2. Current fixed interest rates that are available for both 15 year and 30 year loans.
  3. We continue to maintain our level of business while many others are selling less.

Please let us know if you like the video blog concept and if enough of our visitors like it we might start adding short video updates to our text blogs.  And one final the very end of the video for some reason I ended up cutting off my office phone number so here is the complete number (740) 397-7800.  

Apple Valley Lakefront Homes

by Sam Miller

It is not everyday that you can find an Apple Valley Lake waterfront home that is priced under $300,000.  Most generally you will only find an waterfront home in this price range if it has minimal water frontage, located on a small cove or overlooks the marina and even then prices can still be above $300,000.  This property at 291 Crabapple Drive is a winner because it combines an exceptional location, a true lakefront lot, a wonderful view and this home is ideal as a summer home / vacation home or a year round residence.  If you have always dreamed of owning a home on the Apple Valley Lake with a great view consider this your opportunity.     

There are very few Apple Valley lakefront lots that haven't already been built on so finding a nice lakefront lot is super rare and we currently have one available.  Lot 54 in Orchard Hills Subdivision on Baldwin Drive is ideally located next to Sutton Beach and is priced at $235,000.  This is a gently sloping lot that will allow a level driveway which makes it perfect for a year round lake residence.
