Psst...Hey, wanna buy a house?

Jennifer Mackay posted this 903 Views

When you read those words, does your mind conjure an image of a figure lurking in the shadows, motioning you deeper into a gloomy alleyway?  I know it does for me... Why would I begin my commentary like that? Mainly due to the horror stories we've all heard and continue to hear about the Real Estate Market. Let me explain: In recent years, many thought the real estate market  was a gold mine waiting solely for them to come along and buy up all the properties, make...

Hamilton County Adds Crucial New Road

Indy Realtor posted this 1,273 Views

A new stretch of 146th street recently opened at exit 10 of I-69 in Hamilton County to officially connect I-69 to Cumberland Road.  This is one step in an effort to eventually connect I-69 to I-65 from Hamilton County through Boone County.  The plans to make the full connection a very vague and far from a reality, however, this stretch is one more piece of the puzzle.  The 4 mile, $53 million stretch will add one more reason for residential and commercial developers to en...

IMO nothing could be further from the truth! it is in times like these that market share is gained, new ideas are forged and much is learned about the business. A slow market is one where everyone else thinks that things are slow, so that the resourceful entrepreneur can have a field day. It clarifies WHO can truly market as oppposed to sell. ...

As a Realtor, it's sometimes interesting to see what our website customers are looking at in homes or some of the great deals they find when we receive inquiries.  Also, just like the clerk in a dress shop during the clearance sales, it's tough to pass up some of the deals that I see come across my desk. Unless I have a reason to get into the MLS and search for a certain type of property, I probably won't because I am always quite busy. Well today I received  a lead for this wat...

Is it a Good Time to Buy Atlanta Homes?

Ryan Ward posted this 2 984 Views

So the guys on the TV tell us that it's a bad real estate market. Really? I disagree. Not just with the premise, but with the idea that this type of reporting is relevant, accurate or even news to begin with. Let's start with the premise of a "good" or "bad" real estate market. There is no such thing. It's really quite simple and to say a market is good or bad in and of itself is irresponsible at best - especially when they don't put in perspective whether they are t...
