  Ivy Tech to open classroom site in Beechwood Centre Avon Indiana is buzzing with the news that Ivy Tech is opening a satellite Campus in Avon.  The officials here had worked hard for a period of time to get Ivy tech to sign an agreement finally on April 22 their dream had come true.  Ivy Tech will bring 12 class rooms and a computer Lab, utilizing the strip mall with the Gerbt furniture store, Star Walk cafe and Bedroom one.  The vacant strip mall will be full of students this fall when it opens.  I for one am very excited to hear about Ivy tech coming to Avon.  Having a community college close by to be able to take a class or two sounds fantastic.  There is always something new I want to learn and maybe they will be offering a class that would advance my career in Real Estate.  Avon...

  One of my listings is a nice 3 bedroom ranch but it needed just a few touches to make it stand out and shine. Painting the trim and professional cleaning, I new would enhance the value of the property and would help sell the property when the right buyer does come along. At my advice, the seller hired a professional to clean. There was a time limit on the hours to clean the house so it left some important cleaning details undone.  Although I'm not a professional I rolled up my sleaves Before the open house and did some detail cleaning and painted the base boards and trim.  I spent about 6 hours on the property scrubbing and painting, it did make a difference.  We did get a offer that weekend even though it was declined by the Seller. The house hasn't sold yet but the buyers that have ...

Along with my Hendricks County Spring Property tax Bill was a new Form I had never seen.  If you have a Home Stead Exemption on your Real Estate You own and you think your covered, Think again.  Along with the new law that requires investors to pay a higher tax base comes a whole new problem.  Fraud by people that rent out their second home or investors that buy property and rent hoping to make a profit. So we the home steaders that actually do live in our homes are required to file a form saying that we do indeed live there.  The instructions that I got said to fax it over and the fax receipt would be proof that it was paid, the only problem was that I got an accepted notice by my fax machine but no receipt.  I called the Auditors office and they said they had 400 of them and couldn't ...

I've been working really hard and to slow down and relax sometimes can be hard.  So I opended the door and pulled out my guitar,.  Music can help you to be quiet and still.  To get your mind off of the seemingly endless to do's you can be doing with Real Estate.  Away vanished the details, the sign I'm trying to design, the buyers that still haven't bought anything but assure me they want that buyers credit.  The short Sale that I'm waiting on offers for and on and on it goes, phones in the morning and appointment tomorrow after noon.  So away vanish away for a few minutes I will be emersed in "The Last Kiss" "The Colors of the Wind" and Creedence's "Have you Ever Seen the Rain"  or" the Sounds of Silence"and several others if the phone doesn't ring.  It will be ok though if it does rin...

Buying a home in Indiana The Lender Pre- Qualification and Pre-approved The difference and does it really matter?.       What’s the difference between pre-qualification and pre-approval?Pre-qualification is a simple and fast process. The buyer is asked specific questions about their income, assets and liabilities.  They will run a credit report to see if your credit qualified to buy. Based on this information, they are provided with an amount for which they may qualify. This process can be done strictly on a over the phone or over the internet. This will also tell the buyer the price range of a house they can qualify to buy.    A pre-approved buyer is one who is actually approved for a loan of a certain amount.  Preapproved buyers are what Sellers and Real Estate Agents Like to see.  Th...

Its hard to understand the woe that has went on in these peoples lives.  I have been brought to tears by some of the most heart wrenching stories of how they ended up in the position of losing their house.  You can see their pain and even more feel it.  From the loss of loved ones, jobs lost, illness, making much less or nothing at all.  Its truely painful to hear and feel their pain.  The great thing is they talk of hope, how their new job is less stressful but more satisfying.  How much they have grown, lost and gained and how they are ready to let go.  Let go of a house that was their Dream once.  Where they raised children and sat around the dinner table.  A House full of laughter and tears.  The world is always full of surprises.  One day everything was business as usual and the ne...

Short sales and Foreclosure the difference and why it matters to you.  In a foreclosure your credit score can be decreased by over 200 points where as a short sale your credit score may be decreased as little as 50 points.  Qualifying for a shortsale means that you have to show hardship.  1. Job loss 2. Business Failure 3. Medical or illness 4. Death or divorce 5. Natural disaster If you have liquid assets, that Lender will want you to contribute.  Short sales require substantial documentation and the Seller is responsible for gathering all supporting documents but I will be with you helping you to gather and will put it all into a short sale package to submit to the Lender when a buyer is found and a offer has been accepted. If you would like to know more about the process e-mail me at...

Yesterday was my daughters 21st birthday.  We went shopping together the day before for both cake and clothes.  She wanted to make her own cake, a peppermint chocolate cake so we picked up the ingredients and made her cake yesterday.  Doesn't seem like so long ago when she was born or for that matter me waddling like a duck around the block waiting for her to be born.  I had a midwife and it was a wonderful experience.  I have 3 other children and they were all born in hospitals but I had decided to have her with a midwife instead.  It turned out to be a wonderful experience.  Personal, caring and I learned more about having a baby from this midwife then from having my other babies in hospitals.  It was an experience I won't ever forget and of course Kayla being born on St Patricks day ...

 It just occured to me, that right now this minute, I only have one time to do this single minute with all the joy that every minute we have deserves.  Yesterday I was focused on the details of holding an open house, today I'm going to focus on the minute I'm in and let the process unfold.  I am a detail nut and like my ducks in a row. Sometimes the ducks just don't line up and yesterday was one of them. Today maybe the ducks will line up but if they don't thats ok.  I have deep gratitude that I have this opportunity to go to a lovely environment, meet some great people that are looking to buy their dream home and do what I love which is to help them obtain that dream.  Life can't get any better then that. Open house today Sunday 2/28/10 at 2260 Mossy Creek, Avon,Woodcreek Crossing Subd...
