Indy Realtor posted this 2,370 Views

I am sorry to report that the Greenwood Indiana real estate market does not have great numbers for September 2007.  The Greenwood real estate market is mirroring the greater Indianapolis numbers, posting a decrease in the total number of sales while gaining slightly on the average sales price of a home.  In September 2007, there were 93 homes that sold in Greenwood compared to 111 that sold in September 2006.  This represents a 13% decrease in the total amount of homes so...

Selling a home without a Realtor?

Keith Lutz posted this 1,672 Views

I once tried to take out my toilet and replace it with a new one.  Needless to say, I got the job done!  But it was not fun, time consuming, disgusting and all in all, it is something I would not do it again.  Lesson Learned the hard way!     Some people say a "FSBO" - For Sale By Owner.  We in the real estate industry like to call them "Unrepresented Sellers".  A few years ago alot of websites started popping up that would...

The oversupply of inventory is forcing them to cut  prices by large amounts. There simply isn't enough of a demand for the homes they have been building there. Even during the slowdown, developers who were already underway on their projects kept right on building. The combination of lower demand...

While sales continue to slow in both Lee and Collier counties as Season begins, now could not be a better time to buy in Southwest Florida. Prices have dramatically dropped and builders are literally giving away fully decked out homes. Unfortunately, like everywhere else in the country, if you listen to the national media, you'd think the sky is falling.
