THE SNOW IS COMING!  THE SNOW IS COMING!  The weather forecast for Fort Wayne over the next few days is scary.  According to Indiana News Center the snow is supposed to start Monday night through Tuesday morning.  Initial accumulations will be 1 to 3 inches.  The rest of the day Tuesday will have on and off flurries...  then the fun begins!

fort wayne realtors jared and amanda: I'm glad we saw the house again, and I'm glad we didn't write an offer. - 01/21/11 04:06 AM

I showed a couple 5 houses Tuesday and 5 houses Wednesday.  On Wednesday we found a very nice home that they decided they wanted.  The kitchen was fantastic, the living room and family room were spacious, and the bathrooms were exactly what they wanted.
There were a few negatives.  The size of the master bedroom was a little smaller than they wanted and the backyard was also smaller than they liked.  We decided to think about it for a day and then go see 2 others.
I didn't tell the couple this, but I scheduled another showing for the house … (7 comments)

fort wayne realtors jared and amanda: Our Favorite House The We Ever Sold In Fort Wayne. - 01/10/11 07:43 AM
1211 Stophlet St., Fort Wayne, Indiana.  1211 was a beautiful older home with tons of character.  This home featured a lot of natural woodwork and built in shelves.  The hardwood floors upstairs were original and the staircase was grand.  It was well cared for and move in ready, although the buyer would probably need to do some updating. 
We listed the home at $33,900.  Yes, I said $33,900.  Sadly the neighborhood was deteriorating and there were a lot of abandoned homes and many that were condemned.  As sad as it was to see the surrounding homes, it was nice to see … (4 comments)

fort wayne realtors jared and amanda: Frequently Asked Questions: Round 1 - 11/30/09 02:27 AM
I asked this question on my Facebook profile last week:
What FAQ’s do you think first time home buyers have? Here are some of the questions that were asked:
Q:  Is a pest inspection a good idea?
A:  YES!  Absolutely!  Especially if there are any traces or evidence of pests or wood destroying insects.  Bob Jackson of Jackson Pest Management charges a fee of $65 for a pest inspection.  Have you ever seen what termites can do to a home?

GET A PEST INSPECTION!  Money well spent.

fort wayne realtors jared and amanda: Are open houses a complete waste of time? - 08/30/09 12:04 AM
I've been a Realtor for 8 months now.  My company does open houses for a new construction company here in Fort Wayne so I was fortunate enough to have my pick of 3-5 new homes to do open houses on every week.  At first I was ecstatic that I was that lucky!!!
Well, I did open houses every single Sunday for MONTHS!  I got lead after lead after lead and thought things couldn't get any better.  I followed up with a post card campaign and phone calls and then more post cards and guess how many deals I have closed from … (14 comments)

I was reading an article on this morning about the local GM Plant.  It looks like the Cash For Clunkers have really put a more positive outlook on things for General Motors, Inc.
GM announced Tuesday that it will add 60,000 vehicles to it’s North American production schedule through the end of the year.
GM Vice President Tim Lee said the workweek at the company’s Allen County assembly plant will be extended from four days to five to make it easier to add overtime.

These last two weeks have been so busy that I haven't sat down and blogged at all.  I didn't think much of it but yesterday when I googled "Fort Wayne Realtor", "Fort Wayne Real Estate" and "Fort Wayne Homes For Sale" I didn't see our site on the front page!  I know it's more than just blogging but I don't think it's all coincidence. 
From her on out I am going to set aside 2 hours a week to work on the blog and more SEO and fresh content.  Look out FRONT PAGE...  HERE WE COME!!
