Looking at the homes that sold in Fishers during April, I was hopeful we would have good news this month; but again we are seeing the numbers way below the prior two years.  It is so frustrating for sellers that need to move and/or are ready to move to have to wait so long to sell their homes and take so much less on their homes.  
There are keys to selling a home in Fishers, but there is usually an objection to every house honestly. It may be on a corner, it may have … (4 comments)

While the news isn't particular good for January...I will give you some good news towards the end of the post!  For January of 2011, there were 48 homes in Fishers for sale that closed.   January can be a slow month and I think with the economy still not stablized and the weather (more snow and cold) it is not all that unexpected for us to see lower than usual numbers.  In January of 2010 we saw 69 homes sell in Fishers so a 30% decline this year.

fishers homes for sale: Fishers Realtor explains the Pre Approval Process - 02/02/11 07:41 AM
Originally posted at My Fishers Blog on Jan 24th, 2011
To make your offers as strong as possible when buying a home for sale in Fishers, having a pre approval letter helps.  Along with the offer, the seller likes to see a 1% earnest money check and the pre approval letter from your lender.  It gives the seller some assurances that you (the buyer) have talked with a bank or mortgage company and they upon their initial review of your financial situation....approve you for the purchase.
How do you get a pre approval letter?  This is a great question!  You can … (3 comments)

fishers homes for sale: Never Answer the Same Question Twice - How much House can I Afford - 01/14/11 11:56 PM
As part of the series "Never Answer the Same Question Twice" comes one of my favorites:
Hi Cindy, our lease expires in three months so we thought we should get started but we know nothing about the home buying process.  How do we know what we can afford or will be approved for?             
I guess there are a couple of ways to look at that question. 
You might be asking how much will a bank approve you for?  This is based on several factors such as your credit score, your income, your debt ratio and your cash available for starters.  The only way to … (19 comments)

fishers homes for sale: Fishers Indiana Real Estate Sold 2010 Report - 01/14/11 01:16 AM
This was an unusual year in Real Estate...everywhere  There were over 1,000 listings that expired in Fishers during 2010; many of course were relisted and ultimately sold.  Expired listings almost always leads to disappointed sellers and frustrated Realtors®.  If you are one of those sellers and still want to sell your Fishers Home, call a Fishers Realtor that can get the job done.
While sellers have had some frustrations during 2010, many buyers were able to capitalize on the first time buyers credit, motivated sellers and low interest rates, truly a Trifecta for them.

fishers homes for sale: Top 10 Questions in Real Estate - 11/19/10 01:06 AM
Way back in 2008, I started a series on the Top 10 Questions in Real Estate for my outside blog on Fishers Real Estate and somehow I never finished the series!  So much to write about I guess!
So the answer to Question 9, what is the payback on my renovation is the one I will answer today.
The short answer is, it depends!
But every year CNN puts out a renovation payback calculator; that is fairly reliable across the country. 
Overall, kitchen remodels are the best.  You can typically expect upwards of 80% payback on this.  I've included a renovated picture of … (2 comments)

The area from 106th to 116th on Hague has some of the best neighborhoods in Fishers, older but very popular.  Most of Fishers Real Estate that is new construction are areas out by Olio and 116th and at Brooks School and 126th.  I think there are treasures within Fishers that have held remarkable value in Berkley Grove, Hickory Woods and Timber Springs.

fishers homes for sale: Fishers Realtor explains Homestead and Mortgage Exemption (LOWER Property Taxes) - 10/03/10 04:00 AM
It's time for another definition to be explained...
The State of Indiana allows various exemptions to be filed that decrease the assessed value of real estate property.  The two most common exemptions are the Homestead and the Mortgage Exemption.
The Homestead is worth $45,000 and the Mortgage is worth an additional $3,000 off the assessed value.  You can file the Homestead if you "live" in the property as your principle residence.  You can not file it if you live out of state now and rent your property.  You can file the mortgage exemption if you carry a mortgage on the property.  … (2 comments)
