Sean and Sharon O’Hearn are full time Realtors with RE/MAX Capital Diamond Realty and are longtime Windsor natives.
Sharon grew up in Ford City and has strong ties to the neighbourhood where her father worked at Ford Motor Company for 36 years and her mother is still very active in the community.
What was just a few years ago considered a “long term project”, Sean and Sharon believe Ford City is now experiencing a noticeable turnaround. House by house and block by block, buildings are renovated, repurposed and sold within days for higher than asking prices.
With its rich history, central location and proximity to highly sought after Walkerville, they recognize the area has tremendous potential. Historic, unpolished, and ready for resurgence, Ford City has already attracted businesses and entrepreneurs who are not afraid to take risks. Ford City has become “the” place to live, work and create. A place where entrepreneurs, makers and artists can forge a future for themselves and be part of a creative renaissance.
In a market where values city wide are rising at over 20% a year, and demand far outweighs supply, Sean and Sharon advise looking to areas that haven’t fully taken off yet as a smart way to find value for first time home buyers and investors. They believe Ford City is one of those areas. Thriving, century old, sometimes overlooked, offering affordable single family homes, income properties and commercial opportunities. Steps from the waterfront you will find great restaurants, vegan cheeses and meats, coffee roasters, a clothing store cafe, interior design, custom furniture, hair salon, and the list goes on, all in a central location. Ford City has it all.
