geist real estate agent: Geist Waterfront Homes are Selling - 07/13/11 02:59 PM
If you are thinking about selling your Geist waterfront home; you might be curious about what the current market is showing.

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 agent: 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)

geist real estate agent: Geist Waterfront Real Estate Market September 2010 - 10/14/10 07:48 AM
I guess I should begin with the actives, there are currently 43 homes on the market with "on Geist Reservoir" in their description.  Several of these are at Shorewalk and are condo's.  If you exclude those condo's, the price point of homes on Geist Reservoir for sale are between $525,000 and $5,500,000 (quite a range). 
The actives have been on the market for an average of 150 days, so there should be some motivated sellers out there as we head into a colder season here in Indy.
The newest listing is in Masthead on Spinnaker Court for $1,800,000 and was just … (2 comments)

geist real estate agent: How to Increase your Curb Appeal - 09/15/10 02:04 PM
I live in the Moorings and love this neighborhood for its mature trees, neighbors who care about their yards and amentities such as the pool and tennis courts.  It is located in the Geist Real Estate area off of 96th and just east of Mudcreek Road. 
 I noticed several years ago a home on Moorings Blvd that was on the market a long time; by the time it sold it had been on the market for over two years.  I'd been in the home and it was a great house but just didn't "WOW" you when you were in it.

geist real estate agent: Geist Waterfront Real Estate Market Report June 2010 - 07/17/10 02:49 PM
