If you are thinking about selling your Geist waterfront home; you might be curious about what the current market is showing.

Spring has arrived.  As a result many Geist homeowners will consider whether to renovate their existing home or buy a new home in Geist.
Renovations are always good news.  If you don't move you will enjoy the new look and feel of your home.  If you eventually move it will increase the resale value of your home.
The question is how much!
Let me give you some examples of renovation costs and returns in the Geist/Indianapolis area.  If you were to make a bedroom in the attic and spend $50,000 or so you could expect a … (5 comments)

The Metropolitian Indianapolis Board of Realtors (MIBOR) has recently released their 1st Quarter Data.  The report shows that the first quarter of 2011 was 10.9% lower in homes sold from a year ago; keep in mind the First Time Buyer credit was available in the first quarter of 2010.
They assemble the report by County; so let me give you both Lawrence Township (Marion County) data and Hamilton County Data since Geist Real Estate crosses both counties.
Marion County was actually down 18.7% (so more than overall of 10.9%) and the average sale price … (5 comments)

geist real estate: Dock Owned rather than Waterfront as an Option in Geist - 03/21/11 06:38 AM
We have seen 65 degrees this week and suppose to be in the 70's next week; which means some people will start to get the itch to make a move to a new home.  Many will think about a home for sale on Geist. 
Of course, many may not be able to afford one with lake frontage but what about one that is at least dock owned.  A place to put your boat and to launch from easily during the summer onto Geist Reservoir.
There are currently 7 homes for sale in Geist under $300,000 (mostly in the Shorewalk condo community) with a … (4 comments)

geist real estate: Deals on Homes for Sale in Geist - 03/11/11 03:18 PM
How do you find the best deals on homes for sale in Geist?  The ones where they are actually on Geist Reservoir or at least have dock access?  There aren't usually a lot of those choices, but I found seven today when I searched for homes on Geist Reservoir that are distressed.  By distressed, I mean either bankowned or listed as a short sale.
If a home is bankowned, you as the buyer are only dealing with the bank and usually those banks don't want to carry homes as part of their business model.  However, it is also important to note … (6 comments)
