For first-time homeowner Bridgette Newell, buying a home from the Cuyahoga Land Bank was a pressure-free experience. After extensive searches for homes on real estate websites, Bridgette, 49, found her two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath fixer-upper on Lamson Avenue in Bedford on the Cuyahoga Land Bank website. “My overall experience working with the Cuyahoga Land Bank was very good,” says Bridgette. “Housing Manager Ian Ahern was very understanding and helped me through the entire process.”
“I had to renovate the entire house completely,” says Bridgette. But It was well worth the effort, she declares. “I love having a home with no mortgage. My home is very spacious, and the best thing about it is that it is all mine!”
“I have and will continue to recommend buying a home to renovate through the Cuyahoga Land Bank,” she says.
