I got a call last week from "Susan."  Her parents are in their mid 80s and are going to be relocating back to the Fort Wayne area.   They are in town for a week and asked if they could meet with me to get on the same page.   We met in their hotel lobby.   I had a pen, a notebook, and my reading g...

The other day I received a phone call from a prospective buyer that wanted to see one of our listings.   I told her a little more about the home, and asked what her schedule was and when she could see it.   Then I asked her a few more standard questions.     1.  Are you currently working with a R...

Our business partner and mortgage broker extraordinaire Laura Horacek with GSF Lending shared a great list of things NOT to do when buying a home with us last week.  She said that she recently had a borrow quit her job just days before closing and didn't realize it would be a problem because she ...

Probably not.   That's my short answer.  Those of you that know me know that I don't like giving short answers, so here goes.   Right now inventory is low in the Fort Wayne real estate market.  Especially if you're talking about homes in the Northwest and Southwest Allen County School Districts. ...

Should I have an inspection on a brand new home?   YES.     I've sold plenty of new construction homes in the Fort Wayne area.   They all smell SO good.   We all love that new construction smell, don't we?   The carpet is fresh and new. The countertops are spotless and new. The paint on the walls...

I woke up the other morning and saw that I had a private message on Twitter.  It was from Movoto Blog, and it said that Fort Wayne was voted the fifth most boring city. 1.  I don't know who Movoto Blog is, so there's that.   2.  Really?   Fort Wayne is boring?  Based on what?   Then I read the bl...

How's the real estate market in Fort Wayne right now?  In a word...  NUTS.   Inventory in Southwest Allen County and Northwest Allen County School Districts is still VERY low.  Homes that go on the market in those areas are normally under contract within days.   That's great for sellers, but what...

Every morning I wake up and head over to Active Rain to read blogs and see what's going on out there.  Oh, and to make my comments.  I don't think I've missed a day of making comments in years!   But...  there's so much going on over here that I haven't had the time (I know I could make it if I w...

I'm kind of a control freak.  So is Amanda.   For this reason, we've held off on hiring an assistant.  To have somebody else in control of some of our stuff scared the heck out of both of us.   Well, last year we found ourselves running around like chickens with our heads cut off for about 9-10 m...

I had an interesting conversation with one of my buyers recently.  He had interest in a home that is priced at $250,000.  It's been on the market for a few months now.   The home itself is in an area he likes, but it does need some cosmetic updates.  By cosmetic I mean a fresh coat of paint throu...

Amanda and I have been selling real estate in the Fort Wayne area for six years now, and there are many things we love about it.   Flexible schedules We certainly don't have 9-5 jobs.  We often work evenings and weekends, but we also shop on Tuesdays and have date day/night on Thursday.   New peo...
