Looking for a little piece of the country? Look no further! This brick ranch sits on a little piece of heaven, well-positioned between Lebanon and Whitestown, just .02 miles from the interstate for an easy commute. Well-maintained and comfortable with an updated kitchen (stainless steel appliances), hardwood floors, a cozy family room and large sun room, this is a great home for an easy move-in with outbuildings for storage and well/septic – so low, low utility bills! Call Jennifer for more information or to set up a private tour.
This is not your typical ranch! Sunny, spacious & fashionably updated with an open floor plan… you’ll love the fenced yard, mature trees, over-sized garage & superb location that lets you get in & out of Zionsville lickety-split. An addition increased the size & functionality with a huge fourth bedroom (with a walk-in closet!) & a very convenient mudroom/storage area. This one is fashionable, spotless & turn-key, and it’s solid-brick with new roof & mechanical systems circa 2005. A SUPER VALUE! Call Jennifer for more details or to arrange a private tour of this spotless Zionsville home.
Michael and Kristin had an accepted offer on their sweet, little town home, and they were in a hurry to find a new home nearby that would allow them to have more space, necessitated by the arrival of baby #3. Jennifer helped them preview multiple properties throughout Carmel and Westfield until they found 14645 Shadow Lakes Dr West, which proved to be THE ONE that met all their needs. What a great yard this one had! And a finished basement. Even a basketball hoop for their son Josiah to enjoy. Negotiations commenced, terms were ultimately finalized, and a closing date was set. It wasn’t exactly a smooth transaction for a variety of unforeseen reasons, but it did get closed. And after a little rehab, the Carys have been able spread out in their new home with space for everyone.
The addition of baby #3 made 10936 Lemongrass Drive a tight fit for Michael & Kristin’s family of 5. It had been an awesome home for them in the early years of their marriage, but the family expansion demanded more space, and the momentum of the spring housing market made the timing perfect for their move up in size. Jennifer helped the new parents prepare and price their house for a quick sale, and the marketing began. Within 12 days, two offers were presented. The strongest offer was selected, and the closing date was set. The sale sailed through the inspection and appraisal process, and the Carys got to start their own house hunt. Now, that’s another story, but it also has a happy ending. Lemongrass is now closed, with new occupants, and the Carys have spread out in their new home with space for everyone
This was the year that will forever be described as “pure pandemonium”
in the Indiana housing market. The recession melted away with the
winter snows, as plummeting interest rates popped the cork on pent up
demand. Spring of 2013 went from busy to outrageous, and with a housing
industry short on staff in every arm of the business, backlogs plugged
up closing schedules quickly. Matt and Molly’s purchase of 1089 Half
Moon got caught in the USDA queue for weeks…which became
months…but the sale of their home on Pendleton Pike was not to be
delayed. So, as they packed to move (with nowhere to go), Jennifer
worked on the Half Moon owner, who just wasn’t interested in their
request for prepossession. She was really fearful her clients were
going to be homeless with three babies, and she’d never had homeless
clients in 12 years, so she was panicking! In the end, at the last
minute, they were able to acquire prepossession of the vacant house
(though the terms would be considered extortion) until they could get
Half Moon closed, but Jennifer is now seriously thinking about buying
a cheap condo somewhere just to have available for clients in
transition, because that was too nerve-wracking! Anybody know where
she can find something like that?
Matt and Molly needed another bedroom. Baby # 3 was on the way, and
the couple hoped to get into a different school system and bigger
house before he arrived. Alas, their story of sold took some patience.
More patience than any of them expected, as the location of their
super cute, ranch home turned out to be a real stumbling block for
many would-be buyers. They had so many frustrating no-shows and last-minute showing cancellations that Jennifer took to calling every showing agent beforehand to sell the value of going INSIDE and to
heighten consideration for the busy young parents’ feelings, if
nothing else. That effort ultimately worked! The last prospect who
actually walked in the door bought it in an instant, and boy were they
excited at the closing! In the end, Jennifer got to see Matt and
Molly move to Cicero (now THAT is another story), but she also got a
reminder that patience and persistence almost always pay.
