Hello, I am looking to buy my first home in Indianapolis. I am young (22) and looking for a decent neighborhood.

Asked by balazs44, Indianapolis, IN Wed Oct 31, 2012

The price point is kind of up in the air as it depends on what I am getting. I was considering a duplex, (renting one unit, living in the other), but am also open to a single family home. I currently live in Irvington and love the charm of my neighborhood....and always find myself drawn to older homes with high ceilings etc. As I said I am young (with excellent credit) and am looking for an awesome deal....thanks!

Sometimes it takes awhile to find that first home. I know it took me two years to find mine.

Dear prospective client.

I welcome the opportunity to professionally assist you with your real estate needs and I look forward to earning the privilege of your business. It is important to me that I earn your trust and confidence as purchasing a home is one the the most expensive investments you will make. Determing the price point is critical- not only on what you are getting but also what you would be pre-approved to purchase. The lifestyle you seek will also be important in deciding on whether you choose a duplex, condo or single family home and how long you intend to occupy your home. You are not alone when it comes to looking for an awesome "deal" however I would prefer to make it my objective to find you a property that provides awesome value and a more predicatable return on your investment.

My only guarantee I make to my clients is I will work in earnest to ensure you are well prepared and informed of the home buying process. I will make sure we both understand and agree on the search criteria, that we have open and honest communication and we make the process as enjoyable as possible.

On behalf of Century 21 Scheetz, our staff and our resources, I truly welcome the opportunity to earn your trust. I can be reached at: 317-431-2969 or mharris@c21scheetz.com.

Having a good credit is a great step for buying a home. You should also try to get pre- approved with a mortgage company to find out what you can afford. Next step is to really look at what you are willing to spend a month on mortgage. This range will determine your true price range. If your interested I can help you out with the whole process

Hi Balazs44,

Your idea of a duplex is one adopted by a number of buyers; often you can find one with an existing tenant. I would be happy to work with you and hopefully find a bargain!
