Hi Tim,

I've worked the neighborhoods all over Indianapolis and surrounding cities and I've owned several rentals on the near east side of Indy for about 20 years and my renters never been disturbed. I usually lean toward suburban homes when safety is paramount. But there are wonderful neighborhoods in downtown Indy. If you google crime stats in areas like Indianapolis, Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield, Brownsburg, etc, you'll get a good feel for the types of crimes typically reported in each area.

I'd be happy to help you locate and show you specific homes that fit your needs.

Thanks for the question,

Downtown Indianapolis is hot, but may be difficult to find 1 bedroom under 500. Check out Broad Ripple, Fashion Mall areas. Carmel, Avon, Fishers, Geist, Greenwood, Franklin Township also good suburban areas ... more

Kord Golliher answered:

If I may, I am currently studying Finance and Real Estate Finance at I.U. Bloomington, so I commute back and forth between Indy (Plainfield West Side) and Bloomington. From my office in Plainfield it is about a 45-50 minute drive to Bloomington, and with 465 being so close the rest of the city can be easily accessed. However, Corbin was correct in saying that Greenwood would also possibly be a good match for you guys.

Best of Luck!!

Hi Debra:

I would be happy to help you find a home that fits your criteria. It looks as though, based off the zip code, are you looking for a property in the Decatur /Wayne Township area? I did some research and found several properties in this area, 15 to be exact, when I set a search of $30,000 or less. Keep in mind, I ran this search without any additional information as to what you are looking for in a home or how much you would like to spend. Of these 15 properties, they ranged from $10,000 up to $29,900.

I encourage you to speak with numerous agents and find one that you "get a good feel" with as I say. The chemistry between the buyer and realtor is important in making the homebuying process not only run smoothly but enjoyable. Buying a home is a big decision and you want to make sure you feel you have the right agent.

If you are currently interviewing agents, I would love the opportunity to meet with you. Please feel free to contact me directly at 317-590-3434.

Sarah O'Donnell answered:
I looked up history of agents that have represented the buyer in that area on a multi-family property in the past year. You might want to contact Mike Cagle with FC Tucker. He represented the buyer on a cash deal about a year ago there. As an agent that represented someone, he probably viewed many and did history on the area. Let him know that Sarah O'Donnell referred you., 317-888-3311.

That's what any agent should do to help a buyer. So technically, you don't need someone that has exact experience in the area... but I can definitely see why you would want that on a multi-family investment purchase.

Sorry to hear about your situation. There's nothing worse than getting taken by unscrupulous people. Unfortunately, it does happen. As a part of my practice, I work with a local attorney that knows real estate law. I not only handle real estate transactions, but I'm a property manger. Having a real estate attorney that protects my business is critical for me to sustain my business.

I recommend Lesa Duvall with Mishkin & Duvall. She's been in her practice for 20+ years and represents clients in 45 states.
Ph: # 317-634-9100

Let me know if you need any additional assistance. Feel free to give me a call or send me an email.

As I mentioned in my review, Christian Park is a GREAT area to live in. There is so much privacy and mature trees and the plus is that mostly old people live there. The only bad thing is all the walking traffic that Pleasant Run gets from washington street to the park. ... more

Sasha, Mr. Mack is right. It would be impossible for someone not to be on the deed. So it would go to their heirs, then the state. Would you like to know more about the property. I can make a phone call to my title co. I just need the address.

Mariam Rahmani answered:

If you could tell me where from the UK you are from I can provide a few similiar communities. My spouse is from England (Devon) so I am familiar with the British culture.

There are communities in the suburbs and metropolitan area. Suburbs- Carmel, Fishers and Zionsville all have great school systems (recently ranked high for testing scores, etc) and if you are interested in more of a "city feel" there are terrific charter/magnate public schools in the city. You can still find a close community feel in Meridian Kessler which offers a selection of private, charter and magnate programs (which I can explain the difference further if you wish). Below I will do a quick breakdown-

Carmel- Suburban, great school system with high testing scores, quite large
Fishers- Same as above
Zionsville- Better school system than the above two, may have an even more community feel

Meridian Kessler- City, good school options, great neighborhoods, diverse architecture

Feel free to contact me if I can be of futher assistance- or 414-9770.
