Good Monday Morning! Our Fall weather seems to have arrived as the leaves are starting to change and the mornings are becoming increasingly more brisk. Sales are up substantially over what we've seen in the past few weeks: Hamilton County had 78 homes go under contract and Marion County saw 218 homes go under contract for the week ending 9/25.

The Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors has released the August numbers and on the surface they they don't look too good, but we are trending in the right direction. The numbers that are often released are exceptionally broad in measure. When valuing real estate trends it is critical to look locally as all real estate is local in nature. The chart below breaks down the numbers by city as well as county. For an accurate valuation of your home, please CLICK HERE.

Still no word on extending the $8,000 home buyer tax credit. If you know someone looking to get this credit, I urge you to act now. The system will get log jammed at the end of November if measures are not taken to extend the credit. A delay in closing could be very costly. 

Have a great week!
