Indy Realtor posted this 1,640 Views

Along with the rest of the Indianapolis real estate market, Noblesville’s numbers for September 2007 are down slightly in both number of units sold and the average selling price.  The statistics for Noblesville this month were showing some very weird numbers, so I had to filter them a little bit.  Just so there is full disclosure, the numbers here are based on sold homes in Noblesville from $100,000 -$500,000.  This is where the majority of the homes are priced anyway, s...

I’m a firm believer that real estate is a good investment, but I still want to maximize my dollars as they travel from my pocket to the bank’s balance sheet.  Earlier this month I wrote about some credit card programs that offer rebates and award incentives that are pretty darn attractive to the disciplined consumer – and I know we’re all looking for all the help we can get.  Everyone wants to get in the game, regardless of their mortgage balance, but there i...

I am living proof that you can become a successful real estate agent in a market you know nothing about in a profession that is new to you in less than two years. Two years ago I was an Air force tech Sgt flying supplies in and out of Iraq on one of worlds largest cargo jets. The job was fun. I was able to travel all over the world but the pay sucked and the thought of being shot down by a manpad and burning to death was not one that sat well in my stomach. I watched my wife who had gotten...

Some people might think that with all the problems with financing and all the doom and gloom media coverage that you can get a steal on real estate right now because sellers are desperate. However in nice areas, we are still seeing multiple offers commonly. I just recieved a mutiple counter offer on a home that I wrote an offer on for a client. The home is listed at $950k, and we offered $975k  because they already had received on offer but they hadn't presented it yet to the seller. So even...
