“Let’s Keep It Real Baby”

I am a big fan of American Idol. One of my favorite judges is Randy Jackson. I especially like it when Randy delivers the truth and says, “Let’s keep it real baby.” Sometimes I wish I could just be that blunt with my real estate clients in Metropolitan Indianapolis, including Boone, Hendricks, Hamilton and Marion counties. Many sellers are like…

Bad Day for a Home Inspection

It’s February, and like many areas of the country, we’ve had a lot of snow in the Indianapolis area. The other day, one of my clients had a scheduled home inspection while snow was still coming down and the previous day’s snow had already blanketed the whole neighborhood. While snow days may be the delight of school-age children, they’re not…

Don’t Take Form of Property Ownership for Granted

One of the challenges I sometimes encounter in the buying and selling of homes in Northwest Indianapolis is when a seller does not own their property in severalty. What is severalty you might ask?

In fact, you may be asking yourself, “What should I be looking for before I write an offer?” It’s smart to know some of the defects of a home before making an offer and before spending money on a home inspection.*…

Don’t Get Lazy With Curb Appeal

As I drive through my best-selling neighborhoods of Northwest Pike Township, Brownsburg and Zionsville, I find some sellers are getting a little lax just at the wrong time. August and September are strong months for sales because buyers with families are trying to get into a new home before school begins. The Number One eye-catcher for home buyers is curb…

Finding an agent

The first thing you should do if you are considering the purchase or sale of a home is to find an agent. Of course, there are several folks out there who want to try “For Sale by Owner,” but I’d advise against that approach (and here’s why). In my opinion, the most important thing you need to look for in…

What in the world are they thinking?

Every day in the real estate business is interesting, but a few weeks ago I had one that made me ask myself, “What in the world are they thinking?!?” The day started by making appointments using the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors (MIBOR) web site. I was armed with the BLC (formerly known as MLS listing sheets) for six homes…
