Calum posted this 1,233 Views

The buzz in the building industry is all about being green, but there’s still an underlying belief that building green is expensive.

Gulf Coast Associates posted this 5,206 Views

The debate may be just starting. Commissioners, school administrators and parents are all re-evaluating the current school choice program and it would not be surprising to see changes down the road. In 2004, the court-ordered mandate for busing children to school for achieving segregation expired. Since 1998, Lee County utilized a parental selection of school choice allowing them to satisfy the mandate and eliminated the need for re-drawing boundary lines each time a new school was built. ...

Foreclosures - Are you getting the best buy?

californiadon posted this 1 1,505 Views

Foreclosures: Several buyers have been asking me about the foreclosed (REO) homes and condominium opportunities in the marketplace. It seems that the more REO properties we have in the marketplace, the less attractive these opportunities are. The logic seems crazy, I know. If it were only based on the simple economic fact that the more homes in the marketplace for sale... the more downward the price pressure on the existing inventory and therefore the pricing ...except in the case that most...

Indianapolis Real Estate - Market Report - October 2007

Indy Realtor posted this 1,175 Views

I don’t normally like to do a report just on Indianapolis real estate because I feel that it too broad of a search to get a realistic picture of what is going on in the marketplace.  However, it does provide some good overall data that can be used to compare with some more local statistics.  So, I will give the Indianapolis numbers and then follow it up broken down by townships so that we can see how the individual townships fare as compared to the overall market.  O...
