Jennifer inherited this listing when one on her team members left the business. It was in the Village of Zionsville, Jennifer’s home turf and an easy transition, but it had already been exposed to the market a little too long when she stepped in. The marketing and presentation needed an overhaul to attract new attention. She walked the home with the sellers…advised some adjustments to the staging…brought in her trusted photographer for a crucial re-shoot…tweaked the price to a more active price range…and rewrote all of the ads for the house. It worked! An offer was received in short order, but it failed when the buyer got nervous about buying a historic house, relinquished his earnest money, and walked. It’s painful, but it happens. They started over. Another buyer came along, but this one walked the fence for weeks. And weeks. And weeks. What he didn’t realize is that Jennifer never gives up. She followed up, answered questions, checked in, “sold” the Village lifestyle, checked in again, invited him to events in town…and BOOM…an offer was finally presented. It closed, and all were happy. The new owners are now seen all over the Village, enjoying the lifestyle she had promised, and loving it!
If golf is your gig, you cannot beat the location of this rustic charmer within walking distance of ZGC’s clubhouse. And with nature all around, a scenic river in your backyard, & a good-looking homestead, you can’t beat the price. Offering updated mechanical systems & a fresh exterior paint job, two spacious bedrooms on the upper level, multiple decks to observe the scenery, and an interior with character, you can love it as it is or make it into your dream home. But you’ll not find another opportunity to drop a canoe off the back deck for $175,000 in Zionsville! Call Jennifer for more details or to arrange a private tour.
This property is full of possibilities! Scrap the house and use the existing foundation to build a fine home on a rare 1/4-acre lot with grandfathered site coverage & setbacks… Or tear it down and start all over! This is a corner of the Village ripe for re-gentrification & is ready for a creative thinker who wants to be close to the brick street. The house is sold AS-IS & may be salvageable, but price is based on land only. Utilities in place. Located in flood zone X – does not require flood insurance! But prudence would suggest building the first floor up a bit. Bring your ideas and creativity and let’s get to work! Call Jennifer for more details.
The sale of 260 W Cedar is the finale in a three-part series that is one of Jennifer’s proudest career accomplishments to date. You might recall the tale of Jamie & Jen, who had coveted a rambling foreclosure in the country, but had two homes to sell first in order to blend their families? They had taken a gamble in purchasing the foreclosure, had won it in a multiple bid scenario, and had earnest money on the line. Jennifer HAD to get ONE of the two current homes sold in order for them to buy the foreclosure, or they would have had to forfeit their earnest money, which was simply not acceptable. She got it done when she sold Jen’s home in Coventry Ridge in less than 30 days. Then she got the foreclosure purchase done. And that left Cedar St as the last to go. She got that done, too! The perfect buyer was found. It wasn’t the easiest transaction, or the smoothest (the historic ones rarely are easy), but it closed! And now Jamie and Jen are free to concentrate on the behemoth they are rehabbing…and loving every minute of it. And Jennifer cannot wait to see the finished product (or hit the casino with her new-found luck at gambling).
This restored beauty offers all the historic features you love (10′ ceilings, built-ins galore, abundant character & even a bear-claw tub), but also all of the updates you demand.

It features large rooms, a smart floor plan, 4 bedrooms & a dry basement for storage, plus updated systems (including windows/HVAC/water softener/appliances, etc). The listing price on this one-of-a-kind property has just been reduced below a recent appraisal value! Call today for more details or to arrange a private showing.
Almost two years ago, Jennifer’s client turned her eyes to a pre-civil war house right on Jennifer’s own block. It was just the perfect fit for Susan, but the house was tied up in a grueling short sale quagmire with two banks holding insurmountable liens on it. An offer was submitted, but it languished indefinitely while the banks fought about who got what out of the sale. Ultimately, it went through the foreclosure process and to sheriff’s sale. No buyer claimed it, so the first mortgagor took possession of it. Then it sat and sat and sat until it popped up on the market as a foreclosure six months later. Conveniently and oddly, it had new carpet and paint and a new furnace, and priced almost $40,000 more than Susan had offered the year before. So, she sat,watched, waited, and wondered if she was meant to own it at all. They watched the price reductions tick down over and again until it was listed right at the offer she had submitted previously with the improvements completed. She pounced, submitting a new offer for even less than before. It was accepted, and she closed this month! While that was not the easiest sale, for a variety of reasons, it is by far Jennifer’s favorite sale to date because of the way it worked out in the end. And since Susan is surely Jennifer’s most favored clients EVER, she is thrilled to have her moving in across the street…someday!
