geist waterfront homes for sale: 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.

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 waterfront homes for sale: Geist Realtor highlights Feather Cove - 04/22/10 02:22 PM
One of my favorite things about Lawrence Township and why I live here is the beautiful landscaping with winding roads (i.e. Fall Creek), mature neighborhoods (i.e. Feather Cove and The Moorings) and custom homes (very few cookie cutter neighborhoods). 
Feather Cove is one of my favorite Indianapolis neighborhoods because the drive down Courageous showcases all of the above.  The landscape is just beautiful.  Add to that that many of the homes for sale in Feather Cove are on Geist Reservoir. 
Feather Cove is a very large neighborhood, there are over 575 homes ranging from $200,000 to $1,800,000.  On average, 75 of … (1 comments)
