center grove in homes for sale: Can I Really Roll Rehab Money Into My Mortgage? - 12/13/08 07:24 AM

Prior to closing, you will need to have contractors come in and give you bids for how much it will cost to make the needed repairs to your new home.  Now … (3 comments)

center grove in homes for sale: What Are The Dark Streaks On My Roof? - 12/11/08 01:32 PM
Is this a question you've wondered about from time to time?  Whether it was happening on your roof or someone else's?  Well, ask no more.  Here's what our friendly neighborhood home inspector, Jim Schwarz of Center Grove Real Estate Inspections had to say:
Dark streaks on your roof are algae growth.  This typically shows on the North or East exposures of the roof surface that stay cooler and more damp than the sun exposed surfaces.
These streaks are also an indication that the roof is beginning to approach its latter stages of useful life.  As the algae grows, it begins to … (2 comments)

center grove in homes for sale: Can You Touch Bottom? - 12/11/08 01:21 PM

Remember what it was like when you were a kid and you'd jump into the deep end and challenge your friends to see who could touch the bottom of the pool? 
When you were little, you'd have to kick and push a little to get there.  Your ears would pop and you'd get a little scared...wondering if you'd be able to hold your breath long enough to get all the way to the bottom and then back up again.
It's kind of the same with our current real estate market.  People keep challenging themselves to see who can hold out long … (0 comments)

center grove in homes for sale: It's The Price, Stupid! - 12/08/08 12:57 PM
OK, so maybe that wasn't the name of the training I attended today, but it might as well have been because I think that's pretty much the main point that all of us got when it was over.  Our training was taught by Linda McKissack, whose team usually sells around 300 homes a year, so I think she certainly knows what she's talking about. 
One of the first things she said today that really got my attention was "Our price is good, but we're just not getting any showings."  Ha!  This caught my attention because I know I've said this myself.  … (0 comments)
