SOLD – 4913 Melbourne Road, Indianapolis

4913 Melbourne RdThe Johns family had already outgrown their comfy home in Pike Township when baby #4 was announced, so the time was right and the schedule tight for a move in the summer of 2013.  Jennifer had a listing nearby that appealed to them; a spacious, clean house in a nice neighborhood that was priced well because the sellers had fallen on hard times. It was a perfect fit, but how to juggle the sale of Melbourne and the purchase of their new home on a schedule that made sense to a pregnancy already in month seven?  “We’ll figure it out,” Lucas said.  “Let’s just get Melbourne on the market and get the new house under contract and go from there.” Jennifer secured an accepted purchase agreement for them, then focused on Melbourne.  It needed to be cleaned up a bit, purged, staged and priced to sell in a short amount of time, but not so soon that they were homeless before they were ready to close on the short sale they had to wait on.  The long and the short of how all that worked out is that Jennifer knew an investor who was snapping up nice homes for their rental portfolio.  She made one call and Melbourne was under contract at a fair price with a flexible close schedule that could accommodate the acquisition and move into the larger home.  And the new baby arrived a month later.  Whew!  Jennifer hasn’t had a family homeless yet, and she finds it fun to see how things always seem to work out.
