For my last blog of the year, I thought I would take a break from talking about appraising. There are a lot of famous people from the Cleveland and Northeast Ohio area that you might not realize. Yes, Cleveland rocks! I thought this would be fun way to end the year. Since this is an appraisal blog, I added some charts that I put together, to give you an idea of what’s going on in these areas in terms the market. The charts are reflective of single family sales. I hope you enjoy this!
