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!

Happy holidays Jamie. Hope you get to take some time off. Funny post. Is LeBron still welcome in Cleveland after leaving the Cavs twice
Thanks Joe! We still love LaBron! He still lives in the area and does a lot to help kids in Akron and surrounding areas. He’s a cool guy. I will be taking some time off starting tomorrow.😃 Enjoy your down time with family and friends!
