JUST SOLD – 3504 Modesto Lane, Carmel

3504 Modesto LaneDoug had tried to sell on his own for several months before a friend referred him to Jennifer.  His time on the market “FSBO” had resulted in a lot of wasted time – no offers, no feedback, and prospective buyers who disappeared.  He was a very frustrated home owner who just wanted to move on to the next phase of his life.  When Jennifer toured the house initially, she recommended several inexpensive improvements (clean the carpet, rearrange the furniture, paint the front exterior trim, tidy up the basement, etc), and then she showed him a more effective pricing strategy.  As the holidays approached, 36 showings were coordinated and an offer materialized from the last buyer through.  All in all, the house was on the market just 64 days and closed on New Year’s Eve.  2014 offered Doug a fresh start and a new adventure, and Jennifer loves to finish out a year with a closing in the 11th hour.

What Polar Vortex?? I hadn’t noticed!

house in snowPeople keep asking me, “How’s this weather affecting the real estate market?”  I suppose you’ll get different answers depending on who you ask, but I’ve actually sold three houses in the past week!  Our office had a stellar January, surpassing our sales volume from 2013, despite the arctic blast (if you’ll remember, last January was unseasonably warm!).  I suspect this is because so many would-be buyers and sellers are trapped at home, shopping and researching online.  And while I may be snowed-in from time to time, I’m on the phone, banging out emails and doing my job.  Carpenter helps me post my listings EVERYWHERE, so they are getting maximum attention right now.  We post on dozens and dozens of international websites.  Our homes are in print, on tv, in your mailbox, and, yes, if you can get to the house, there is always a flyer box out front with lots of juicy little details on the beauty before your eyes.  Buyers are finding our listings, and buying them.  So it looks like this is going to be a smashing year.  If we can sell this much in this weather at this time of year, well…bring on the spring!  We’ll need more inventory by then, for sure.  Who’s thinking about a move this year?


SOLD – 2429 Ash Court, Avon

2429 Ash CtWhen Nick and Amanda built 2429 Ash Court in southwest Avon a few years ago, they were certain it would be their last move.  They built it exactly how they dreamed a home should be and spared no expense on the finishes and systems they had installed.  But then a new job opportunity in Castleton materialized for Amanda, and the commute took its toll.  And that’s when they called Jennifer…again.  Jennifer had helped them sell two homes prior, and she was excited to have earned the opportunity to help them move a third time! This sale did not prove to be as quick as any of them hoped, but Jennifer helped them evaluate the market and decide when and how to finish their basement for maximum impact.  The market improved, the finished basement helped, and an offer soon materialized that closed this summer.  Now Nick and Amanda are back on the north side with a much less painful drive to work every day!

SOLD – 1526 Roanoke Drive, Zionsville

1526 RoanokeLife changes are good business opportunities for Jennifer, and Evan’s new marriage was no exception.  She had helped another set of clients purchase Evan’s new wife’s “bachelorette pad” last summer. Jennifer must have made a good impression on him during that process, because he called her to list his Zionsville condo when it was decided the BACHELOR pad had to go.  And a typical bachelor pad it was!  Jennifer helped him transform it to a universally appealing, low maintenance opportunity.  Yes, the deer head over the fireplace had to go to storage!  Within a few months, a buyer was found, and the deal was consummated this spring.  Now, Evan has referred Jennifer to his former neighbor, and that transformation is underway as well.  Anybody looking for a soon-to-be-beautiful little condo in Zionsville?

SOLD – 5525 S 950 E, Zionsville

5525 S 650 EMargie was frustrated with the sales process on her beloved Zionsville home of 30+ years.  A new marriage had moved her to the south side, so she’d initially called a “friend” to help her sell it.  After six months, she called it quits.  She had limited showings, negative feedback, and no offers; but that is usually the outcome of no advertising, no open houses and no staging.  As spring advanced, she called in Jennifer.  Wallpaper was stripped from the kitchen, furniture was re-positioned in the front room, fixtures were changed in a bathroom, and the price was adjusted by just $3000 to hit a crucial price break. With aggressive advertising, Jennifer sold and closed the sale in 71 days.  Successful real estate sales are never about “who you know.”  They are always the result of having the right professional on the job who can help perfect the condition and pricing for the best fit in the market, and Jennifer has honed that knowledge with more than a decade on the job, writing Stories of SOLD.
