JUST SOLD – 9136 Paddock Court, Indianapolis

Lindsey and Brian weren’t really sure what they were looking for in their first home. He liked “new,” she preferred something more seasoned, with character. They’d seen a few with Jennifer when 9136 Paddock Ct hit their radar after a steep price reduction. It was a good compromise for their diverse tastes, on a big lot, with a unique floor plan. It was all brick, custom-built with high ceilings and had great bones. It would benefit from a little cosmetic updating, but the price was right for their budget. The negotiating commenced, as did the wait. It was in a short sale program and had to have bank review and approval of any offer before a closing could be scheduled. Fortunately, Lindsey and Brian had time to take the gamble to secure the house they loved. Jennifer counseled them on the process of a short-sale purchase, set their expectations for a timeline accordingly and then submitted the offer in mid January. By mid-March, they had an acceptance in hand from the bank; a record approval timeframe, for sure!  Now, Lindsey and Brian are making their new home theirs, and preparing it for life after their upcoming wedding.  And Jennifer was reminded that some things are worth the wait!

JUST SOLD! 608 Overland Way, Brownsburg

Patience was required for the sale of 608 Overland Way!  When it went on the market late last summer, Jennifer expected a steady number of showings, positive feedback and a moderately quick sale; but things don’t always go as planned, and heavy construction on State Road 267 cooled off this usually hot neighborhood.  Jennifer and her clients struggled with what to do to increase activity.  She talked with other listing agents in the neighborhood and learned that they, too, were struggling for showings.  So, Jennifer tweaked her advertising, changed up her pictures, stepped up her email and snail mail marketing, and kept it top of mind.  Once the construction ended, and the neighborhood was again accessible from the main road, showings started picking up!  And in just a few weeks, an acceptable offer was received at the price the sellers needed.  Jennifer was reminded, once again, that patience is a virtue, and sometimes required in the crazy world of real estate sales.
