Carmel Indiana saw a 25% decline in homes sold in May 2011 from May 2010.  There wre 112 homes sold in Carmel compared with 151 last year at this time. This is the 2nd month in a row where 2011 has lagged 2010.
Other statistics that we watch are Days on Market (how long does it take from list to close) and the price per square foot (which most certainly varies by neighborhood...).  For May of 2011; the DOM was 86 compared with 67 a year ago...so it is taking longer to sell homes in Carmel.  … (0 comments)

There are 794 homes for sale in Carmel Indiana today; that would overwhelm the most organized of buyers! Where do you start?
I like to have a buyer's consultation meeting with my buyers.  I like to learn about why they are looking for a new home, what they would like in their new home and what pricing is comfortable for them.

Ouch, not a good month for Carmel homes selling this month!  This month is the largest decline in comparison to 2009 at a 53% decline.  I am, however, hopeful November will be the turning point with the election behind us.  Consumer confidence was on the way up with the news of the U.S. employment jumping by more than anyone expected in October.
Homes that sold in Carmel in October were 63 this month compared with 139 in October of 2009.  The days on market are also higher at 116 compared with only 82 days on the market last October.

carmel indiana homes for sale: Carmel Indiana Realtor highlights Fairgreen Trace - 03/16/10 02:53 PM
Carmel Indiana Real Estate has 639 homes actively on the market today!  Of those only 122 are ranches.  It seems more and more people are wanting ranches; could be a sign of the demographics shifting to an older population?

Located off 116th just west of Rangeline and east of College is Fairgreen Trace.  It is a small community of about 70 homes built by Trinity between 2000 and 2003. 
There is very little turnover in this community with only two homes being sold in the last year.  Both of those homes sold in about 100 days and at $118 a … (0 comments)

Today, there are 683 active homes for sale in Carmel Indiana and 5% of 33 of those are short sales.  Whilte this is not a huge amount in terms of percentage, it is one of the more sought after type of homes in the market.  Many buyers or investors are looking for a deal and short sales sometimes can be that deal.
The "short" explanation for a short sale is a property that is going to sell for less than the amount owed on the property.  In other words, the bank is willing to accept less than the full balance due … (0 comments)
