real estate: An Open House in Fishers Deserves Maximum Prep - 09/10/14 03:47 AM


Once your property appears in the Fishers listings it’s time to prepare for the all-important initial open house. Whether it’s really “all-important” (or just very important) is a matter for debate—you can’t really pin down exactly how important the initial open house is because some of its effect isn’t immediately measurable. Word-of-mouth takes time to spread—and sometimes prospective buyers take weeks or months of comparison shopping before they return to a property that made a lasting impression.
Less subject to speculation is that a Fishers open house will expose your home to an array of interested consumers. The impression … (0 comments)

real estate: Strategic Tips for Updating an Old Family Home - 09/08/14 11:50 PM


Selling an elderly or deceased relative’s Indianapolis home can be one of the most selfless tasks anyone is ever called upon to do—and not just because it’s hard to let go of a place that has so many loved ones’ memories. What frequently adds to the emotional component is the condition of the house. Although your Aunt Elda might have loved the shag carpeting and the harvest gold kitchen appliances, those features can be counted on to turn off today’s typical home buyer. Bearing in mind that selling a home is first and foremost a business proposition, it’s frequently … (4 comments)

real estate: Carmel Home Showings Keep Busy Households Hopping - 09/04/14 10:59 PM


Selling your home quickly and for the highest price possible demands that the showings be proactively appealing: that is, more than just a passive display of the residential “merchandise.” To make the most of the advantageous situation that any showing or open house should be, both you and your Realtor® must adopt the approach of any successful salesperson—namely, being certain every potential customer is shown the best aspects of the product. When it comes to Carmel home showings, that means staging.
Most of the advice you’ll read about staging follows the same general formula: organizing rooms; maintaining exterior landscaping; … (0 comments)

real estate: Time-Savers for Buying a House in Noblesville - 08/26/14 11:34 PM
 
According to last month’s National Association of Realtors® announcement, existing home sales are up across the U.S., at the same time that home inventories are on the rise. In Noblesville, it may point to a brisk fall market, with more prospective buyers deciding the time is right for buying a house.
 
It’s true that a few lucky prospects will find the perfect home after just an afternoon or two. But that’s not often the case: for most people, buying a house requires a good deal more shoe leather. Buyers who aren’t really certain of what they want in their … (1 comments)

real estate: Credit Score Overhaul to Affect Carmel Mortgage Outlook - 08/17/14 11:25 PM


For any Carmel resident who has ever been stymied by seemingly arbitrary (or, put another way, nutty) lowering of his or her all-important credit score, next month’s beginning rollout of Fair Isaac’s new credit score model should be welcome news. It will be known as “FICO 9”—and promises to correct a few of the previous model’s inadequacies.
Why now? It’s been six years since San Jose’s Fair Isaac Co. last tinkered with their credit score methodology. Hmmmm…it’s been six years, too since the financial crisis of 2007-08, which Wikipedia correctly describes as “a major global recession characterized by various … (3 comments)

real estate: Easy Weekend Projects to Boost a House for Sale’s Appeal - 07/24/14 11:27 AM
 
“You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”
 
It’s a saying that job applicants (at least the successful ones) take to heart. It’s why a lot of serious primping goes on before a blind date. It’s why movie directors spend as much time as it takes to light and prepare the first shot that will introduce their lead actress. And if you’re going to have a house for sale in Indianapolis this summer, it’s why it’s worth it to take pains to make its first impression as strong as possible.
 
Making any Indianapolis … (1 comments)

real estate: 3 Things to Keep In Mind When Negotiating a Home Purchase - 07/21/14 01:30 AM


Negotiating tactics. It’s a topic that business authors adore. This is perennial best-seller territory…so much so, you could probably fill a moderate-sized home library with titles like The Art of the Deal and Getting to Yes.
When it comes to negotiating a home purchase in Westfield, fine-tuning your offer—finding the balance between writing a winning offer and writing the most advantageous offer—can present a real challenge. Add to that the national headlines that tell us that there are more bidders out there vying for the same properties, and it makes sense to listen to what the experts have to … (1 comments)

real estate: Empty Nesters Have Alternatives to Simple Downsizing - 03/04/14 04:00 AM


 
 
The children have grown; home feels…a little empty…
Many people assume that an empty nest means it’s downsizing time—time for a smaller house or condo. In truth, for many a homeowner in the Indianapolis area, downsizing is just one of a number of appealing directions.
It may sound obvious, but it’s your interests and plans that should guide your next step. After a lifetime of deferring to other people’s priorities, many of us are ill-prepared to think creatively about what it is we want. When we do, downsizing might not necessarily be the springboard to life’s next great adventure.
For instance: consider Upsizing. Moving … (2 comments)
