Syracuse Indiana Market Report May 2009 Housing activity has picked up in the Syracuse area. With 14 closings last month, it pushed the year to date totals ahead of last year. That is a very welcome and hopeful sign that we might be bottoming out and on the rebound. While one month is no  certainity of a rebound, it is cause for increased optimism. We will take any positives that we can get.

                          Summer has officially begun on Wawasee with the arrival of The Memorial weekend and all the Lake enthusiasts. The biggest enjoyment for me was participating in the return of the Sunday morning "Boat in Worship". With an estimated 50 - 75 boats and a shore audience of about 100, it was a well attended gathering by those who came together to worship the Lord. Kudos to Pastors Cox & Steffan for an outstanding service and a job well done.Special thanks to The Frog for the use of the Lillypad dinner boat for the services to be held on. Services will be held every Sunday at 8:30 A.M. in the Conklin Bay area outside of The Oakwood Inn thru Labor Day.

I thought I would take a historical look at homes prices for Lake Wawasee as they pertain to Lake front homes and condominiums. I have compiled statistics for the years 2001 - 2008. On the charts below you will find the average sales price and number of sold properties for each given year. As you can clearly see 2008 was a year filled with uncertainty that affected lake properties even more so than the rest of the local market.                                           For my report on current numbers of active listings Click Here To search specific active listings Click Here If you are buying or selling a Lake property, we can help.

 The ice is gone, piers are going in and the crappie are working their way into the channels. As I  walk by the big blue monster in my drive, I am eager to pull that shrink wrap off and start prepping our boat for its annual launch. Eager to spend a sunny day  on our beautiful Lake Wawasee . Last year just seemed different with marina gas around $5 a gallon, the lake traffic was down.  Also I have anxious anticipation of  a improved housing market around the Lake.Last year was flat no doubt about it.Interest rates hovering around 6% and most sellers still holding on to that 05-06 appraisal, in hopes that their home would somehow sell at a premium only to realize in October that  they were not immune to this downturn. While yes there are still many overpriced listings out there.[Personal...

Have you ever had one of those moments in time that was so wonderful that it will be forever ingrained in your mind? One of those moments that you will replay in your mind for years to come. One of those moments that no matter if you live to be a hundred years old, you will never forget that moment. It will always make you smile. Yesterday , I had such a moment. It started out very normal. My wife Sharon & I were to watch our 8 year old granddaughter Aubrey, who was not going to school because of a bully issue from a  classmate.Mom and dad were going to school to address that issue. As we already had some errands planned and a lunch date set, we decided to go ahead and just have her tag along. We have five grandchildren all together ranging from 2 to 10, so it is special when you just ...

          A Hint of Spring on Lake Wawasee   The trees are still bare, the piers are still sitting on the shore, but the beauty of Lake Wawasee is priceless. As we strolled along the public access shore line with our Shepherd and terrier, how awesome it was to see the ripples flowing across the lake made by the wind and the three fishing boats (yes Boats). Today it was 65 degrees and to think just 3 days ago our lake was completely covered with ice. Goose poop has already arrived and the dogs did not hesitate to wash their feet at the public boat ramp Brrrrrrrr!! Although the ground is still soft from the melting snow the lake is open and boats are floating, fishing lines are out and the smell of spring is in the air. After a long cold winter nothing is more beautiful than to see our L...

Wawasee sales Report Syracuse Indiana Real Estate - 2008 Home Sales Report 2008  was a real mixed bag of results for the housing markets and our Syracuse area was no exception. This area is blessed with many lakes and because of this factor, we really have two housing markets within one. The homes that do not have any access to one of our lakes, we refer to as non - water. The homes that do are of course referred to as water properties. This includes lake front, channel front, Assigned pier spaces, deeded boat lots, community piers. For purposes of area for this report. I have included all the geographical area that is in the Syracuse Elementary School District & Syracuse mailing address. This two areas were combined to include the East & South Sides of Lake Wawasee, as well as Papkeec...

What a day, and the weatherman says its getting colder. Its -8 degrees and getting colder? I ain't going anywhere. My shower has already froze up. My door handle on my truck broke off. Seems a need to shovel snow every time I look out.Next week when the temps get back up in the 20's we'll all be in jackets. Since it will be"so"  warm next week I would like to invite everyone out to Lakeside Park in Syracuse to attend the Winter Carnival.  Things kick off Friaday night the 23rd  Chili supper at the community center from 4:30 - 7:00 pm. Being put on by the Wawasee Kiwanis & Habitat for Humanity.  Then come on down to the beach at 12:00 noon on saturday to watch the snowmobile races on Syracuse Lake.  After this week, you'll feel like working on your tan!
