Ranch Homes in Carmel for Sale with Basements

Originally posted at my Carmel Blog

I think if I were looking for a home for sale in Carmel, a ranch styled home with a basement would be on my short list.  The comforts of single floor living appeals to me greatly these days!  I would also want a basement; after all these years I would need a place to store all the “stuff” from the kids moving out and leaving things behind!

Ranch in CarmelI love being a REALTOR for many reasons but one of those reasons is the ability to just look at different types of housing on a whim.  Today, I searched for my dream home.  There are 59 ranches with basements for sale in Carmel.  Three of those are over $1,000,000 so a bit out of my price point!

I would want at least three bedrooms and two full baths, so that takes me down to 44 ranch homes available.  And then as I think more, I know I would want at least 1/2 acre or so in land, taking me down to 27 homes for sale.

That’s the wonderful thing about using a REALTOR; you can be as specific as you like or as general as you like.  If I wanted to only live in West Carmel I could put in the zip code.  If I wanted an inground pool, I could use that as a criteria.

If you are curious if your dream home exists, call or email your Carmel Real Estate agent and let me set up a search for you so that you will see all the new listings that match your wish list.  It’s easy and it’s free!

Cindy, Ideally that basement has a walkout!  We've got a ranch with a basement, but no walkout.  A bit of a hassle for getting things in and out of the basement.  We got that spare couch DOWN there, coming out will be much harder :)

Good morning Cindy,

Great post. We don't have basements in Austin because our homes are built on a post tension cable slab (if your located Northwest and on bedrock) or pier and bean if your located more Central where the soil is more expansive. Many buyers moving here are always stunned "where will I put my things I like to store" is usually the comment. Most builders are really good in granting several access doors to attic spaces..which we lovingly refer to as a "Texas Basement."

Good Morning, Cindy. I am with you about those single story ranch style homes. That's at the top of my list since we need to get out of our Two Story level home. A walk-out basement would be nice, but like Dorie has said in comment # 2, they don't routinely build them in San Antonio either.

I would definitely tell all the buyers in Carmel Indiana to call Cindy in Indy to assist them with their home search.

A great example of the type of detail a Realtor can drill-down to in order to assist consumers with their home searches.

Cindy, not many true basements here in Eustis and Lake County!  But we sure can load up the attic for storage.

Cindy - I love the way you presented this. I live in a ranch with a walk out basement.  Been here for 27 years and I wouldn't trade it for any other style.  Just love it!

I would love a walkout Bliz....but can't afford that!

Hi Dorie and Jerry...my Texas friends...it is hit and miss here...we have clay so basements come with a price.

I think it is amazing the choices we have to search with Anita...the public thinks it is just beds/bath/price type things.

Hi Jimmy...I have an attic that is accessible from my 4th bedroom...not stairs to get things into or out of the attic...love that.

Hi Barbara...I hear you!
