Two Million Dollar Houses Top Sales

Two Million Dollar Houses Top Sales

Delaware County had two homes sell for more than $1 million this past week.

Builder Romenelli & Hughes paid $2,479,500 for the 1/4 acre lot located at 9559 Fair Oaks Drive in Powell. The development is also site of the 2016 BIA Parade of Homes this fall and is part of the former Shamrock Golf Club along Powell Road just west of Sawmill Parkway.

1685 Hardin Lane is a 4-bedroom, 5-1/2 bathroom home with 4,568 square feet and situated on 8.13 acres in rural Powell that sold for $1,275,000. The property went through foreclosure in 2014 and sold for $585,000 and then to FDT Group in April 2015 for $622,000. Not a bad return on the investment.

Delaware County’s Top Five Residential Transfers

  1. $2,479,500; 9559 Fair Oaks Drive, Powell.
  2. $1,275,000; 1685 Hardin Lane, Powell.
  3. $675,000; 8341 Whispher Trace, Delaware
  4. $632,900; 1589 Kearney Way, Delaware
  5. $689,900; 4444 North Hampton, Dublin

We omitted a transfer for 131 Joy Avenue in Delaware that was listed for $765,000. However that would be greatly out of line for that area and we are assuming a recording error in that situation.

Buckeye Valley only County School to Earn Prestigious Honor

Buckeye Valley only County School to Earn Prestigious Honor

Buckeye Valley Local Schools is one of 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the fifth-Annual APĀ® District Honor Roll for increasing access to AP course work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams.

Buckeye Valley honored for advanced placement
Buckeye Valley only Delaware County school included on AP District Honor Roll.

BV is the only Delaware County school and joins Dublin City Schools and Worthington Schools as the only central Ohio districts. Inclusion on the fifth Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2012 to 2014, looking across 34 AP Exams, including world language and culture. The following criteria were used.

  • Increase participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts;
  • Increase or maintain the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students; and
  • Improve performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2014 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2012, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70 percent of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.

Reaching these goals indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for the opportunity of AP. Since 2012, Buckeye Valley Local Schools has increased the number of students participating in AP while improving the number of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.

The district continues to identify instructional models and courses that provide a menu of options for students looking to advance their coursework beyond the traditional offerings.

Delaware Real Estate Transactions This Week

For the Week of May 26 – June 2, 2014

Total transactions for the week were down, in large part because of Memorial Day holiday and the delay in filing end-of-the-month transfers. From discussion with area agents I would expect to a strong increase in total sales next week.
