How to Start a Beef Jerky Business

Starting a beef jerky business can be as easy as making jerky in your kitchen and selling it at a local farmers market. But it also can be tough to find success and earn a good living at it.

Here are some tips to help you see more clearly what to expect…

1. Government Inspection – By law, if you make beef jerky for the purpose of selling it, your production facility must be state or federally inspected. If you plan to sell your jerky in the same state as it was produced, you only need state inspection. If you plan to sell to consumers in other states, you need federal inspection.

Getting inspected is not so much the bigger challenge, as it is maintaining inspection. A state or federal inspector is going to visit your facility everyday.

However, many small „mom and pop“ run beef jerky businesses don’t bother getting inspection, and seem to never run into any trouble. They make all their jerky at home, in their kitchen, and sell it wherever they can. Both state and federal government inspectors don’t bother looking for violators, the issue only seems to come up when consumers get sick and file complaints.

2. Private Labeling – To get around the state and federal inspection requirements, most small businesses hire an inspected and approved meat processing facility to make jerky for them. The facility can make jerky based on your recipe or use their own house recipe. They can even source beef specifically to your requirements, or use their own. The facility will then package the jerky with your label on it.

The problem that most entrepreneurs find when they hire a facility is that the jerky never comes out with the same flavor and consistency as it did when they made it themselves in their own kitchen. The answer is to try several facilities and find one that will produce something closest to what you’re looking for.

Do a Google search on the words, „USDA Establishment Number“ to find a list of federally inspected meat processing facilities.

3. Preservatives or No? – Most consumers tend to stay away from foods containing preservatives, artificial flavors, and fillers. Sodium nitrite is a common preservative in beef jerky, and there have been studies suggesting that it causes cancer, though there have been other studies disputing it.

The problem for manufacturers and retailers is that beef jerky must be able to sit on store shelves for several months to retain freshness. To do this, is has to contain preservatives. Most distributors and retailers won’t even consider stocking a jerky that can’t guarantee freshness for more than a few weeks.

So, the trick for a small, upstart beef jerky company, if they want to avoid preservatives, is to find markets where long shelf life is not an issue. Selling jerky at farmers markets, street fairs, and trade shows is common. Selling jerky online from a website is very popular. Some manufacturers have arrangements with smaller stores to come in once a week to buy back old stock and replace with fresh.

4. Distributors – The jerky brands you see in convenience stores and grocery stores were placed there by distribution companies. Names like Core Mark, Sysco, and US Foods represent the largest distributors in the United States and are responsible for filling the store shelves of all the national retail outlets. You can’t just talk to a national retail chain and get them to stock your jerky, you have to go through a distributor. And the way things are in the 21st Century, distributors are unwilling to talk to small, upstart brands.

You can instead talk to smaller, niche distributors, and/or small non-chain grocers. Look for those that focus on natural foods. Small independent health food stores in your area are willing to buy jerky from local producers because of their desire to stock „locally grown and sourced“ foods, provided it doesn’t contain preservatives.

To get the larger distributors to take notice of your brand, you have to build up the name recognition of that brand across the country. That means a lot of social media, a lot of sponsorships, getting mentioned on television and radio, etc.

5. Don’t Partner – Starting a beef jerky business from the ground up is a lot of hard work. It takes years of dedication just to build up a loyal customer base, and even then you’ll find that your life all but revolves around your business. Your business is going to become your life.

If you have a partner, other than a spouse, often times you’ll find your partner becomes your enemy. Even if it’s your brother, your best friend, or your mother. You’ll always find that your partner is not doing their job, or is telling you how to do your job. It’ll seem like your partner is not working hard enough, but is still getting half of the profits. You might find that your partner is working harder than you, and you may feel guilty about not doing your part.

If you need a business partner, talk to your spouse, and have him or her get on board with starting a beef jerky business. If you can’t find a partner, and you believe you need one, then maybe it’s not the right time to start. Otherwise, take a deep breath, clear your mind, and be prepared to do it all yourself.

The rewards are greater that way.

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

Home buyers often confuse a style of home for another. When searching for your next home or tying to determine the style that matches your needs, it’s important to know the different styles of homes available and on the market. Below is a break down of the many styles and their descriptions.

Bi-Level: A bi-level style home is typically a one story floor plan that has been raised above ground level where another level of living such as a basement or additional rooms resides. They are often considered ranches or split level homes. In fact, when you enter the front door and have to climb stairs to get to the kitchen or main living space, you’re typically in a bi-level style home.

Bungalow: A bungalow style home is a compact 1-1/2 story house that contains smaller rooms. There will typically be 2 or more bedrooms on the main floor along with a bathroom and living space. Bungalows often have basements that can be finished for additional living space and an attic space that may also be finished for 1 or more bedrooms. Bungalows often have bay windows as an accent and a front porch. Those looking for first floor living with additional options on other levels may be best suited for a bungalow.

Cape Cod: A cape cod style home is similar to a bungalow but will usually have a distinctive peaked roof, central front door, shutters, and will usually have an A frame construction. Cape cods also have first floor bedrooms and often times feature a bit more living space such as a dining room or larger second floor bedrooms with baths optional.

Colonial: Colonial style homes are traditional in America and have a rectangular design. Many have centered front doors and a center entry way to the home. Typical colonials will have all the main living space on the first floor such as living room, dining room, possible den or family room and kitchen. The second floor is usually reserved for the private quarters such as bedrooms and bathrooms. Most will have a basement and an attic that may or may not be finished living space. Colonials are spacious and great homes for those needing privacy or living space.

Duplex: A duplex is two properties that are joined by one common wall. Often mistaken for a double.

High Rise: A high rise apartment or property is any multiple-floor building that has ten or more floors.

Manufactured home: A manufactured home is all or a part of a dwelling unit that is built in one location and placed in another.

Mobile Home: A dwelling unit that is built with wheels attached and can be moved from one location to another.

Ranch: A ranch is a home where all the rooms are on a single floor. One floor living. Ranches are often rectangle or L shaped. Rooms are typically spacious and open and every areas of a ranch is utilized for its space. Ranches may or may not have basements.

Split Level: A split level is designed to effectively and efficiently use all areas and floors. Splits will have three floors of living all tied in with a few stairs leading to each floor. The main living area which consists of the kitchen, living room and dining room will have a few stairs leading up to the bedrooms and baths and a few stairs leading to the lower level, (Rec room, family room, mechanicals, and utility room)

Town House: Town houses or homes generally have two or more floors connected to other units via party walls. Similar to a duplex, town homes are typically a part of a developed community of condominiums, clusters or single family homes in a planned community. Town homes will typically have home owner’s association fees which may include common ground upkeep, recreation areas and amenities.

Tudor: A Tudor style home will look like an old English home. Gables and half timbered exterior walls along with brick or stucco are usually what greet you. Windows are tall and diamond paned. Popular features are arched doorways and windows. Room sizes and lay out will vary widely and character and unique design are common. Bedrooms may be on the first or second floors and many will offer basements or dormers.

Victorian: A Victorian style home is often found in older cities and communities and they will typically offer hard wood, high ceilings, stained glass, dramatic stairways and crown molding, multiple paint colors on the exterior, and an eclectic collaboration of design and architecture. Many modern Victorian homes will have gutted redone kitchens and baths while still holding on to the original elements and character.

Tax Liens, Tax Deeds and Tax Deed Overages

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

There are many differing ways to turn a profit by investing in the USA property tax system, and four immediately come to mind.

  1. Tax lien sales.
  2. Tax deed sales.
  3. Front running tax deed sales.
  4. Overages from a tax deed sale.

As a prospective investor, or as a new investor who would like to know more about the industry, the question that remains to be answered is — „Which is the best strategy?“ Well, all of them are good. However, there are advantages and limitations to each.

Tax liens sales.

Tax liens sales are perfect for the institutional and cashed up investor as investing large sums of money are necessary to see a good return. $10,000+ will pay you $1800+ in the higher interest rate states. You may get lucky and even get the deed, however the limitations are that you rarely get the deed, as 97% are sold at a tax deed sale. And, you may have to wait up to two years to get paid! Also, you cannot approach the owner in any way. This means you cannot work front running as you are prohibited by law to approach the owner.

Tax deed sale.

A straightforward public bid auction. If you have done your research and due diligence, and are the highest bidder, you own the deed! Tax deeds are often picked up for taxes owed, and for under $1000! Simple, straightforward, and easy.

Front running.

Front running is also known as „grabbing the deed“. There are two ways to profit from this strategy. Work numerous tax deed sales in advance by seeking to contact current deed owners. Send out large numbers of letters asking owners to quit claim the deed over to you before the auction day. Perhaps one in 100 will respond. Once you have the deed you are the new owner. Your don’t have to bid for it, and you got it for taxes and fees owed. Or, you can let it go to auction and receive 100% of the overbid monies in 30 to 60 days.

Overages.

Overages are what occurs after the tax deed sale. Overages are also known as excess funds. working this strategy involves skip tracing skills to find former owners. These leads are usually cold and dead leads, with about one in 200 responding. If you’re lucky enough to find the owner and the power of attorney is given to you, you may get up to 50% of the refund. This is lucrative when it does occur, but it can cost you skip tracing and attorney fees.

Out of the four strategies, only two give you the opportunity to own the deed; front running, and the tax deed sale itself. Now, let’s recap and take another look.

Tax lien investing takes too long to return a profit, and gives too little of a return on the investment; unless you’re investing large sums of money. Overages can also take too long, and can be very frustrating and time consuming to see a return of only 50% of the overbid excess funds; after skip tracing and attorney costs are incurred.

Front running will get you the deed for taxes and fees owed, with very little cost, and in a short time frame. The tax deed sale will get you the deed for the highest bid, often for only the taxes and fees owed. If your goal is to own the deed, front running and buying at a tax deed sale are the best strategies to focus on. Why?

Owning the deed is the goal!

If you own the deed you have collateral, and a potential sale at a greater profit at a later date. Once the economy rebounds your newly acquired real estate assets will also increase in value. The strategies that give you ownership of the deed are best, for „Owning the deed is the goal!“

How Heat Can Escape Your House and How You Can Prevent It

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

As the cold season approaches, energy bill goes up. This is mainly because of the need for heating systems on winter months. But not all the heat generated by your heating device stays in your house. Some, or in certain occasions, most of them escape from your house. As a result, your heating device has to work harder resulting in unwanted increase in energy consumption and cost.

This can be avoided by effectively seeking out the root cause of the problem, and dealing with them accordingly. Follow these simple do-it-yourself methods and save hundreds or perhaps even thousands of dollars on energy cost.

Doors and windows

Doors and windows usually have gaps and spaces on them where heat can escape. Although they may not be that much, if you consider how many doors and windows there are in your house, they collectively result in a huge loss which will reflect badly on you next month’s energy bill. A simple remedy to this problem is covering the gaps with curtains, drapes and/or sheets. You can also use rugs and door sweeps to cover the gap beneath your door.

Electrical and cable ducts

Electrical wires, telephone wires and internet cables and others of the like enter your house through holes and/or ducts. And through these channels, heat can escape. You can easily remedy this by installing outlet gaskets or stuffing the holes and ducts with certain materials such as foam.

Cracks, gaps and leaks

First, you need to find where they are, but looking for them just by sight can be very tricky. You can use a lighted candle and move it near suspect places. The flame of a candle is sensitive to airflow and will sway at the minutest air movement. When you see the flame swaying at a certain spot, there must be an air leak there. Once you have found the cracks, you can seal them by using a caulk. But make sure to apply it both on the inside and the outside.

Attic and ceiling.

A popular physics law states that „hot air goes up“. This is also true inside your house. The heat produced by your heater is likely to accumulate on the ceiling and you attic. This will only result in wasted energy because people don’t normally stay on those places. You can prevent this by making sure that the gaps and cracks to your ceiling and attic are sealed. You may want to check your folding attic stairs if you are using one. You can use weatherstripping and caulk to remedy the problem.

Heat only certain areas

You may ask yourself: „do you really need to heat the entire house?“ Maybe there are areas in your house that are not frequented by people and do not need to be heated. If you can manage to limit the range of your heater only to places that are frequented by people, and avoid places such as hallways, storage rooms, attic, and others of the like, you can definitely cut down on your energy consumption cost.

Where to Find Repo RVs and How to Buy a Repo RV

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

People all over America are excited about buying used RV repos. RVs are a great way to vacation and see America from the comforts of your own home. Unfortunately, taxes are going up and the economy may not be. People looking for ways to save money may benefit from recent economic down turns as the chance to find more great deals from desperate sellers, or foreclosed and repossessed RVs may be on the rise.

Most new RV are very overpriced. People know that when they drive that new RV off the lot, they automatically lose 30% of it’s value. Buying used or repossessed RVs is a good way to save you a bundle. To get a greatest deals I normally do not recommend a dealer. Instead we recommend finding great deals through private party sellers or buying Repo RVs from a bank.

The problem is that most repossessed RV never go to private party auction. They just get auctioned off to a dealers are they get turned over to an authorized dealer as part of a consignment agreement. Banks are not professional RV sales people. They do not have an advertising budget and they just want to sell as quickly as possible. Either way, you are still buying 3rd party when you buy a bank repo.

A good idea to find bank repo RVs is to contact your lender and asks them if they have any that they are selling or if they get any to contact you if they do. You may get lucky a few lenders may be helpful. One of the biggest sub prime RV lenders is American General Finance. You could also try contacting them. Most RV repos are sold as a silent auction. They may allow you to walk through before the auction or just after. All the sales are normally final and you buy the RV in As-Is condition.

The great part is that unlike foreclosed home, most repo RVs are in good condition. You can get and RV in good condition for a great price. Another benefit is it could come with a lot of upgrades, like satellite, Internet access and multiple slide out. You can get a lot more RV for your money.

When buying a repo RV at an auction it is important to be focused on what you want and to keep in mind a ceiling bid. Set this amount in your mid before you go to the auction to avoid a bidding war. This is the maximum you will allow your self to bid. The only real way to lose out at an auction is to become emotional and overbid.

Before bidding make sure to thoroughly inspect the unit (when possible). Anything that needs to be fixed need to be deducted from the price you would otherwise be willing to pay. If it is not possible to inspect the motorhome beforehand, factor in a contingency factor of 5-15% to fix likely minor repairs. Make sure you are not obligated to buy if the unit has any major problems. Some times they will give you 24 hours or 3 days to have the unit inspected and this is usually more than worth the cost. Use a basic guide book to determine the approximate value of the repossessed RV. If you use the NADA guide keep in mind that you are not buying at private party price, but probably at or below the trade in value. If you do not have access to this value, call a dealer and ask them what the trade in value is. In most cases, they will be glad to help you. This will allow you to get the best deal on repo RVs.

The Electric Blender: A Short History

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

The electric blender, as we know it today, was invented in 1919 by Stephen Poplawski, owner of Stevens Electric Company. By 1922, after continuing to refine his invention, Poplawski patented the blender and began selling it through his company, the Stevens Electric Company, as a „drink mixer“. This device was sold primarily to drugstore soda fountains to make milkshakes and malts. The Stevens Electric Company was bought by Oster Manufacturing in 1946 and Oster was purchased by Sunbeam products in 1960. Sunbeam Products is still in existence today, so you can still buy a direct descendant of the original blender!

A few years after Poplawski’s blender was introduced, in 1935, Fred Osius (who was also involved in founding the Hamilton Beach Company) developed his own blender and with funding from Fred Waring. A few years later the „Miracle Mixer“ was produced and sold by Waring Products for household use. This appliance was known as the Waring Blendor (not blender). As an interesting side note, Fred Waring was a popular musician, band leader and radio-television personality at the time. Waring Products is now owned by Conair, but their line of blenders is still known as „Waring Blenders“.

The Vitamix Company released a competing blender (with the more standard spelling) in 1937. Unlike most of the earlier blenders, which used a Pyrex glass jar, the Vitamix blender used a stainless steel jar. In the late 1940s the Vitamix line became very popular due to television advertising and the Vitamix blender was featured in the very first 30 minute infomercial in Cleveland. By the 1950s the electric blender had become a common kitchen appliance, along with toasters and coffee percolators.

In the 1960s, Vita-Mix released a line of powerful blenders that in addition to grinding, mixing and blending, could make ice cream, cook soup and make juice. This made blenders significantly more versatile and increased their popularity even more.

The traditional blender is still a standard fixture in many kitchens, but there are many new modern variations. Some are minor and more in name than function, such as „Smoothie“ blender or „Margarita“ blender (a standard blender can do these just as well). Other types of blenders, such as immersion blenders, have a completely different design. Immersion blenders are handheld mixers with a small blender blade on the bottom and instead of pouring the materials you want to mix in a blender jar, you just put the immersion mixer in the substance you want mixed.

To those who ever dreamed of being paid for taking glamour shots, I devote this article – discover 5 efficient ways to start making money from your glamour photographer’s skill.

Now I reveal 5 sure-fire techniques of turning your vocation to glamour photography into a lucrative business venture. Just read it and see for yourselves!

Ever thought, „if only I got $1 for every good picture I take…“? Well, here are 5 great ways to make your dream come true – in sums far greater than that!

A glamour photographer has a plenty of opportunities to monetize their hobby to bring in some decent income that can add some pleasant bonuses to monthly cash-ins or even replace a good full-time salary.

Already feeling excited? I haven’t told you the best part – there are multiple ways of making money with your glamour images and your artist’s skill! Let us have a quick insight in some of those effective techniques.

First

You can trade your skill as a glamour photographer. All you need is a DSLR, a studio (rented, owned, home-based, your friend’s – there are many options), a little self-marketing and a HUGE desire to make money. There are many people who would pay nicely for a professional glamour shot; so if you can deliver it, why not earn some extra cash for doing what you do best?

Second

You could take private coaching for beginner glamour photographers. You may not be a pro, but having enough credibility and some fresh, out-of-the-box ideas could compensate the lack of renown. This is not an easy one; however, digital art schools being diploma mills as they are, the market is overcrowded with hungry learners. You only need to step into it and take a niche. There are always people who would pay for knowledge – even if you are not a guru; and there is always something one person could teach another. So why can’t it be glamour photography?

Third

Stock photography is a great opportunity to earn residual income from your glamour images. Resources like iStockphoto, Fotolia and many others would handle all the commercial issues for you, while you enjoy the revenue, getting anywhere from $3 to $5000 per one picture purchased. Saturating a photo bank with quality shots is a time-consuming process, but it can bring a lot of cash to you.

Fourth

If you are knowledgeable about the subject, you could always compile your knowledge into a good e-book and sell it, and sell it, and sell it… Glamour photography is no exception – you can trade your expertise in the form of informational products. This market is smoking-hot, while quality e-books are not a frequent catch. If you manage to produce good content and market it, people would buy, and buy, and buy…

Fifth

There are always magazines out there actively hiring prospective artists. This has much to do with trading your skill and time, but you don’t need a studio – just your camera and inspiration. The employer will take care of everything else. If the very idea of having a boss to work for doesn’t make you shudder, this is the option worth considering.

As you can see, there are literally hundreds of opportunities and resources to make your hobby turn into a little golden stream, which will eventually become a river. Like any other business, it can be successful and lucrative – provided that you are professional, sensible and, most importantly, dedicated!

Selling Used Books Online – Make $750-$2000 Extra Per Month Or Go Full Time For $5k+

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

Selling used books online is one of the easiest, most fun, and most profitable part-time businesses out there.  There is little guesswork when you use the tools that I’m about to show you, when deciding which books to buy for resale, and they are everywhere!  For as little as 10 cents you can purchase a book that will resell for $4 – $100 or more on Amazon or other online selling sites.

When I first heard about selling used books online, it seemed like it would be a big hassle.  I figured you would have to list hundreds of books, not knowing what they were worth, and spend hours making an individual eBay-style listing for each one.  Then ship dozens of books a day and only make a buck or two each.  It didn’t sound too exciting.

But I looked into it further and discovered 10 exciting facts about selling used books online that I didn’t know:

1.  You can find out what a book is selling for on Amazon with an inexpensive portable device you can take with you when you shop – and it takes less than one second for the device to scan the book and give you a value and Amazon Sales Rank (popularity).

2.  It is easy to visually eliminate the books that are not worth much without even scanning, once you learn a few guidelines.

3.  You’re actually looking for mostly newer books that are still popular in bookstores, not antiques 

4.  You can purchase these books for next to nothing at garage sales, thrift stores, library books sales, and more – and they’re worth $4-$100 each for the right books.  They also sell quickly if they have high Amazon sales (your device tells you this before you buy)

5.  Once you get the books home, you simply scan them again, and using another easy-to-use listing tool, the listing for the book is instantly created.  All you have to do is price the book based on the other books available and assign a condition.

6.  Orders are also received automatically by special software, and the software prints prepaid sticky postage labels.

7.   You can pack each book in less than a minute and apply the shipping label.  Therefore sending out books only takes a short time, and you only have to do it 3 times a week.

8.  You don’t have to wait in line at the post office, just drop them off.

9.  Your funds are auto-deposited into your account every two weeks.

10.  You can instantly shut down, and reopen your store if you become busy or take a vacation.

I’ve been selling used books online now for about 3 years, and though my main business is real estate, I still do it because the „treasure hunt“ of finding the books is still addicting.  Something about buying a book that resells for $83 for only a dollar is hard to resist!

So think about starting your own used book business.  You can shop for books on off-hours, and list and ship the books anytime of the day or night.  And having an extra thousand or two dollars a month coming in, never hurt anyone!  In fact, for many people in today’s economy I bet it could be the difference between paying the month’s bills or falling behind.  Personally, I make my mortgage payment by selling used books online, and don’t even have to worry about it each month anymore.

Melrose also backs on the south side to the Pickerington Youth Athletic Association PYAA. Melrose is situated with two entrances and near all shopping, banks, restaurants etc. If you drive through the neighborhood you will find tree lined streets and a friendly atmosphere filled of some of the best Pickerington residents.

Many different home builders constructed homes in Melrose over a nine year span. The three main builders were Ryland Homes (also the original developer), M/I Homes and Rockford Homes. There were also a few scattered lots sold to custom builders. These 3 builders are a prominent part of the growth of homes around Central Ohio. Ryland has since ceased to build in Central Ohio but is still a big national home builder while M/I Homes & Rockford Homes continue to do business as builders and developers in the current home building market in Ohio.

Melrose has 407 parcels including a small section of homes called Inverness Glen. Over the years Melrose has been one of the premier neighborhoods in the City of Pickerington. Each home that was built in Melrose was passed before an architectural review board that approved or disapproved the exterior elevation of the property. The goal was to keep all the homes of similar design but at the same time avoiding a cookie-cutter look. For example no two properties of the exact same design could be constructed side by side or across the street from one another. One of the other planned development strategies was to prevent any kind of fence. This gave Melrose a more open and appealing look instead of rows and rows of houses barricaded in by high fences. Many other planned unit developments fall in line with the designs put in place by Melrose but Melrose took it a step further and limited the exterior color selections to all natural colors. You won’t see a baby blue house with pink trim in Melrose. Everything is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and features a natural look and design.

Since 1990 Melrose has had time to grow and mature. The trees are bigger and most of the distressed sales have sold and filled with new owners. Winding throughout Melrose are curvy streets, a few decorative ponds and many tree lined borders that create a private retreat. If you want a fantastic home in an even more fantastic neighborhood you must visit Melrose in Pickerington. Homes in Melrose range form $175k up to about $235K and is centrally located in the heart of Pickerington.

The schools assigned to Melrose are the following. Violet Elementary is the Middle School, Tollgate is the Middle School, Lakeview Junior High is the Junior High and Pickerington North is the High School.
