  First off let me say that this is one of my first posts as a Rainmaker!!!  I was on the rocks for a while as to the full benefits of paying to blog, but I'm glad I've finally joined.  I've already seen some success in my local area. Realtor.com iPhone Application The new Realtor.com iPhone app is out and it's great! I did a quick search and it doesn't look like too many people have blogged about it, so I'd though I could help out. The application was just released today on the iTunes App Store.  Here is a link to the download the free application from Realtor.com  --->  iTunes App Store -Real Estate Search The application is named "Real Estate Search"  I like the title as it's straight and to the point, instead of simply trying to maintain the realtor.com branding.   While reviewing t...

I know this isn't normal practice for anyone in sales (especially not Real Estate) , but I want to share with my community about another great real estate agent in Avon, Indiana.   Here name is Tammy Howard.   Tammy has been an agent for a number of years.  She's honest, bright, & a great friend! Both Tammy & myself have completed our training to be a Certified Distressed Property Expert in order to help central Indiana homeowners avoid foreclosure.   Of course, I would love to be your Hendricks County Real Estate Agent, but if you'd prefer to work with another agent.... she'd be my first recommendation! You can find Tammy on her website www.buywithtammy.com or on her Facebook page

Looking for the current weather in Avon, Indiana? There are a few of my favorite sites to check the current weather.   AOL Weather for Avon, IN Indy Star - Weather in Avon, IN The Weather Network - Avon, IN Sometimes you don't necessarily want a lot of information about the weather... you just need to know the basics.  For situations like that, I like a site called Umbrella Today.  It answers the simple questions, Do I need to bring an umbrella today?

HENDRICKS COUNTY HOMES FOR SALE: Avon, Indiana real estate sales leader, Chris Castetter writes:  Chris, should we replace our carpet and flooring in our property before we show it to prospective buyers?  My answer is always a resounding YES!  Today's buyers most important commodity is their time.  Very few are looking for a place to live where they will have to take the time and money to replace flooring.  In general, most prospective buyers have a very difficult time visualizing how the space is going to "someday" look with new carpet or fresh paint.  Many are "visual" people and need to see the finished product. Since starting in real estate in Hendricks County in 1994, I have seen it time and again.  A home will sell much faster (& generally for more money) if you paint and carpet a...

Over the past 13 years while selling homes in Hendrick Counrty Indiana, many homeowner's ask, "should we have an open house?"  You may ask ten different real estate professionals and get ten different opinions...The truth is that less that 1% of all home sales across the country are a direct result of an open house effort.  This statistic is gathered from The National Association of Realtors. (NAR)Open houses are great for realtors to network with neighbors and potentional buyers to drive their business, but chances are slim that your property will sell simply by someone dropping by on a random Sunday afternoon.Other market places across the country might have higher odds, but as a whole, open houses are not the key.  To find out what is the key to selling your home in a challenging rea...

Home Seller's preparing to sell.... Avon, Plainfield, Indiana-  Studies have shown that most buyers make a decision about a house within 15 seconds of walking in the door.  Many other buyers make a decision without ever getting out of their car.  The message here is that first impressions are very, very important when selling.  EXTERIOR CHECK LIST:The feeling that people get about the house from the street is called "curb appeal" and there are many staging tips to improve it.  1.  Eliminate any and all yard clutter; excess lawn ornaments, weeds, trim overgrown bushes and trees.  "Fresh  mulch and flowers are always a plus!"2.  Caulking and a fresh coat of paint goes a long way to making a house look good.  Be careful not to pick too strong of a color.  The idea is to appeal to the great...
