What was your agents advice? What information did they provide on the area, other comparable sales, etc? Quite a broad range in that zip code in terms of home prices. I would need more details to give you a better answer. I would start with your agent, they should be able to answer your questions, provide comparables, and give you a better feel for the area. One concern I would have, if the counter was over your price limit, I'm guessing it was listed quite a bit over your price limit. May need to look at homes more in your price range. ... more

Debbie Lotts answered:
HI, Doug. We noticed a shift in the housing market in the Indy area in April of 2013 from a buyers' market to a sellers' market. This was due in part to the fact that many people are being relocated to the Indianapolis area and interest rates were very low at the time. During the housing slump of the previous 2-3 year, builders were not building as many homes and we found ourselves with more buyers than selling, creating a shortage in our housing inventory.

This trend has continued for the past year, until recently, when we've noticed that during the past month we're beginning to see the market come into "balance" once again. The market remains strong and there is still a lot of homes being bought and sold.

If you would like more info, give me a call and we can chat about it.

Lee Smith answered:
There is always a demand for both SFR and Multifams.. Investing in them depends on your goals. We are seeing 15-18% cap rates on most duplexes, but anything 4 or more units are tougher to get those kind of cap rates. Seems everyone is in love with saying they own an apartment building so will take less of a return.. Not saying they aren't out there, but the higher performing larger multifams are harder to find. You can obviously get better deals if you are willing to buy homes/multifams that are in need of work.

We work with a lot of out of state investors, and we do a lot of buy, rehab, and rent/sale both for our clients and ourselves.

You need to get with someone who knows the market and is actively investing in it. Check your crime statistics, check multiple sources for comps both on rent and sales... Looks like you are Indy, so shop around a bit, and ask for references. Ask to see some of their properties they are renting or have recently done work on.

A good website for crime statistics is We generally plug in a quarter mile radius(1318 ft) and 6 months worth of history for every house we are looking at. It really depends on your goals for what kind of investments will suit your needs.

Hey Kathy,

I'm not positive how Trulia pulls it's public records, but it appears they are pulling the public data from 2011. You current accessed value is $195,200. If you claim your own property on this site you might be able to edit some of the information about the home, but more than likely you won't be able to edit tax data.

Is there a specific reason you care what it says? Your tax assessed value really has absolutely nothing to do with the fair market value or an appraised value. If you're concerned about your home appearing to be worth more then I wouldn't sweat the tax assessed value. If anything it's just showing that you taxes are higher than someone else with a lower assessed value.

To comment on your property and which neighborhood it is in, its legal description from the public records does indicate that is is part of South Creek. Here is your legal description of your property:

SOUTHCREEK SEC 1 PT L4 BEG NE COR L4 SW 113.10' TO COURT SWRLY ON COURT 111.18' NW 71.76' NRLY 80.29 ' E 209.5' TO BEG 15,964SF

If you can't edit these details yourself if you claim this as your house through trulia you may have to call them to find out how. Since there are no past listings on this property, wrong data on an incorrectly entered listing can't even be blamed.

Hope that helps!
