In my opinion, no. You will be paying utilities and taxes that are higher than you need to be paying. I can help you find a home in a size that you can manage, and in a good school district. Call me at 317-313-3544. Lori Choate, Broker/Owner, CHOATE REALTY & Consulting ... more

I am not sure what is wrong. I clicked on the link above but didn't see a specific home here. If your home is showing up in the MLS system or on the Internet, it could have happened just by something being typed wrong. Many real estate companies have designated people, which their job is to put new listings on the internet and MIBOR. If they have trouble reading the listing agents hand writing then errors can happen. Give a call to the agent whom has made the error and ask for it to be corrected. They should know who to contact to fix the error. If this doesn't work then contact MIBOR and they will make sure it gets corrected. ... more

Acreage in Zionsville differs in price depending on the area you are looking to purchase in. For example, you can purchase some land in the Willows for over $150,000/acre, other areas, $75,000/acre. If you really want to be exclusive, you can purchase an acre of land in Willow Ridge for over $500,000/acre!!! That is just for the land!
Zionsville does indeed have some of the best school systems in the state. Hardly any crime. I have lived in Zionsville for 8 years and just love it here.

Jim Johnson answered:
When done for the sake of resale, improvements should be considered only if they are necessary to bring a property up to the competitive standard for the area or to replace badly worn or damaged features. They add far less value than the cost.

Improvements for the sake of personal enjoyment are another matter--as long as you remember the caveat about added value.

Julia Evinger answered:
When working with buyers, one of the most frequent requests I receive is for a home with a finished basement. If you have a walkout basement or daylight windows that is even more of a plus. Buyers are looking for additional living and entertaining space. They not only want carpet and drywall, but if you have the funds, finish a bathroom and if possible a separate area that could serve as a theater room, workout area, or playroom. Having two separate defined spaces will add value at a minimal cost. At your price point, a finished basement is going to be expected. Even at the $500,000 price point buyers are choosey and there are plenty shortage of lots available. If they cannot find what they are looking for in a resale property, they will build it. ... more

Erik Armstrong answered:
Simply said, if you are thinking about buying the operative word is NOW. Sales prices are still down, interest rates are still low, plus the $8,000 tax credit has been extended and expanded to now assist qualifying home sellers with up to $6,500.

In a few short months we don't know for sure what will happen to the market. Sales prices may go up, and interest rates may go you may end up not being able to afford as much home as you can now. Many markets are showing improvements already.

The NAR (National Association of Realtors) posted just yesterday on Twitter that Pending Sales have seen 9 consecutive gains, so it just goes to show you that things are getting better in many markets. If your waiting to buy in a "more stable market" you may miss the low and sell high.
