US Home Sales Statistics

US Home Sales statistics shows 5 1/2 Year High!

What do these US Home Sales Statistics mean for Heritage Lake and West Central Indiana Real Estate Markets?

According to CNBC and Reuters, U.S. home resales surged to a 5-1/2-year high in May of 2015.  The National Association of Realtors announced on Monday that existing home sales increased 5.1 percent to an annual rate of 5.35 million units, the highest level since November 2009, that’s nearly 6 years!

Sales have now increased year-over-year for eight consecutive months and are 9.2 percent above a year ago (4.90 million). Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said “Solid sales gains were seen throughout the country in May as more homeowners listed their home for sale and therefore provided greater choices for buyers,” he said. “However, overall supply still remains tight, homes are selling fast and price growth in many markets continues to teeter at or near double-digit appreciation. Without solid gains in new home construction, prices will likely stay elevated — even with higher mortgage rates above 4 percent.”

What does this mean for all of us here in West Central Indiana and my friends and neighbors at Heritage Lake?  According to NAR, in the Midwest, existing-home sales rose 4.1 percent to an annual rate of 1.27 million in May, and are 12.4 percent above May 2014. The median price in the Midwest was $181,900, up 9.4 percent from a year ago. Also, while the average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed rate mortgage went up in May to 3.84% from 3.67% in April according to Freddie Mac, it still remained below 4.00 percent for the sixth straight month. People are buying now before the interest rates increase.

Which Home Improvements Pay Off?

Which home improvements give the best payback?

Home improvements can increase the market value of your property. Which improvements bring the best return on investment? Read on…

Indiana lake home located on Heritage Lake in west central Indiana

Heritage Lake Waterfront Home

If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen, or finishing your basement, you probably want to get your investment back when you sell your West Central Indiana home. But when it comes to payback value of home improvements, some are definitely more profitable than others. As a general rule, kitchen and bathroom projects usually get a nice return on investment, typically 90% or more.Things like adding rooms or finishing basements tend to pay back the least. Finishing a basement usually returns less than 50%, so it’s not a project likely to show profit at selling time.

There are a number of factors that go into determining how well a project will pay back. Payback value depends a lot on the current market conditions in your area. If the market is hot and homes are selling fast, you can expect a higher payback value than you would get in a slow market.  Call Darrel or Teresa at Brouhard Realtors for an update on market conditions at Heritage lake and throughout the West Central Indiana area including Danville, Coatesville, Clayton, and Bainbridge.

The type of project you do and how it fits in with other homes in the area can have a big influence on payback too. If you put your money into the wrong type of improvement, you won’t get your money back. But if you’re smart about what you do, you can make money. The payback will be better on improvements that are in demand and conform to neighborhood standards. Adding a second bathroom in a neighborhood where most homes have two bathrooms will give a high return on investment.  Building a large addition that makes your home twice as big as the other homes on the block probably won’t pay back very well. Likewise, the popularity of a project will factor into how much it pays back. An improvement heavily customized to your wants and needs won’t pay back as well as something more common to other homes in the neighborhood.

Another reason to consider is the cost of the improvements. If you can do the work yourself, you can save significantly on the cost of the project and greatly improve the chances of getting a good return on the investment.  However, this is ill-advised if you lack the proper skills. There is nothing worse than poor workmanship and if work is not done correctly and up to code, the value could be lost in the home inspection. It is important to work with proven contractors.

If your home is an Indiana lakefront property, the view is everything! Trim some trees and clean all the windows for an eye-catching, unobstructed view of the lake! Ensure all curtains, draperies, and blinds are open to enhance lake views on entry of the home. Be sure access to the lake and shoreline is as seemless as possible. With waterfront homes at Heritage Lake, it might make sense to get some ideas from Darrel Brouhard before you list. Brouhard Realtors has specialized in the sale of Indiana waterfront homes and lake access properties for 28 years and they have a great handle on what updates make sense when selling your Indiana lakehouse. Darrel also has a list of local contractors and handy men who have done work in the area for years.  He will gladly offer suggestions before you list your property, just contact him on the form below.

The list below is compiled from several published surveys and shows typical payback for some popular remodeling projects:

  • Kitchen remodeling – 90%
  • Add a bathroom – 90%
  • Bathroom remodeling – 80%
  • Install central heating – 90%
  • Install central air – 75%
  • Add a deck – 70%
  • Replace windows – 70%
  • Add a room – 55%
  • Build a pool – 45%
  • Finish a basement – 40%

As you can see, it is important to put your money into the right project to enhance not only your Heritage Lake home’s marketability, but also to increase your net at the time of sale. Don’t leave these important decisions up to what you would like to see. Call your West Central Indiana real estate experts at Brouhard Realtors to be sure you put your money where it can grow into real value in your  home. Contact the Brouhards today!

Expert Realtors Necessary

Why you need expert Realtors® when you list or sell your Heritage Lake property.

Do you need expert Realtors for a quality niche real estate experience at this Indiana lake?

I’ve been taking my aging parents to some doctor appointments in the past couple of months. It’s amazing to see how things have changed in medicine. The same issues the ole’ family doc used to handle are now directed to the specialists. There are specialists for everything!  As our knowledge base continues to grow via the internet and technology, I see more specialized fields occurring in all professions.WFSALES.Chart

What is an expert? According to merriam-webster.com, the definition of an expert is ‘a person who has special skill or knowledge in some particular field;specialist; authority’.  Synonyms include pundit, maestro, trained, skillful, adept, virtuoso, master, wizard, connoisseur, and afficionado. I’m sure you get the idea? 

Do you really need a real estate expert? According to Forbes.com ” there is no doubt that people are seeking out the guidance of “Expert” content to help them make purchase decisions.”  The author continues to discuss since expertise is in fact what people are looking for then how do you determine who sounds like an expert and who actually is an expert?” Daniel Newman states that “While there is no 100% foolproof way to tell between an expert and their wanna-be counterpart, there are some things readers can do if they are seeking to assure that their “Expert” content really comes from an expert.” He advises the following steps:

1. It is important to consider the source of the information. Does the expert back up the information with years of documented and proven successful experience and do they site reputable sources when claiming their expertise?

2. Check the facts. If someone says they sold x number of properties, be sure they site their source.  Are their sales documented in the blc of MIBOR? When someone says they sell a certain number of homes or have so many millions in sales volume, they should be able to show you a print out directly from the blc documenting that production.

3. Search the expert on line. Google them. You will be able to tell where their expertise is easily by their internet presence.

Since we’ve establishes what makes and expert, we need to learn why an expert is a necessary part of your real estate search and transaction. A Nielsen study sited by the Forbes article previously mentioned found that “85 percent of consumers regularly or occasionally seek out trusted expert content when considering a purchase”.  The study also “found that expert content was the most influential at every point in the new buyer’s journey (Awareness, Affinity, Purchase)”

OK, I think we can all agree that specialization and expertise is important in every endeavor. Besides the obvious necessity of being a proven agent with proven skills, I believe it is especially important in a niche market like Heritage Lake.  A niche market requires specialized knowledge for a reason…this knowledge can make a big difference in the outcome of the sale for both the seller and buyer! It makes a difference in not only their stress levels, but also the financial success of the transaction.  For example, when a real estate broker does a market analysis on a property, they will use 3 or 4 comparable sales from the past year. Most agents put numbers into the computer system such as square footage, bathrooms, etc.  and then let the computer pick out the comparables most similar and then continue to allow the computer to interpret the data and determine the list price. There are so many variables when comparing listings at this Central Indiana lake that a computer cannot possibly determine the correct list price. Sometimes those with less expertise might compare square footage and the number of rooms and think they are comparing apples to apples when they are not! Lake property values are difficult to determine.  I’ve seen the deleterious results of homes priced badly. The house sells quickly which makes everyone happy-unless they consult with an expert afterward to learn there were other factors to consider.

Don’t take a chance of pricing your Heritage Lake home incorrectly! Why wouldn’t you consult with the proven and documented experts in the market? Contact Darrel or Teresa. They’ll be happy to show you their sales numbers. No one else has ever sold as many waterfront properties at Heritage Lake. Not only that, they know the houses they use as comparables! They intimately know the views,  the shoreline, the depth. In fact, they’ve sold many lake properties three and four times over. They have many clients they have served on multiple transactions and enjoy a huge referral base that is filled with their past clients and their clients’ relatives and friends. In fact, the Brouhards are neighbors with all of their past lake customers! This fact does not go unnoticed as they strive as a team, along with their licensed office manager, Nichole Houser, (another neighbor)  to provide the BEST sales and buying experience possible at Heritage Lake. Nichole takes care of important lake oriented details including the newly required Clear Creek Conservancy certificate and making sure the POA has everything needed to supply the new owners thier property owner cards.

Darrel Brouhard is not only a Heritage Lake Expert, he is also a real estate expert as

defined by his status as a Certified Residential Specialist. A CRS is a real estate broker who has completed extensive, additional education and must have a consistently high level of production over a number of years.

Out of more than 1 million REALTORS®, less than 3% are Certified Residential Specialists.

Record Indiana Fishing at Heritage Lake

Record bass caught by Brian Waldman at Indiana Lake

Record Bass Caught at Heritage Lake IN

Fishing at this Indiana lake results in an Indiana Record Breaking Hybrid Striper  in 2014 

See How You Can Start Fishing this Indiana Lake for your Record Breaking Catch!

An Indiana record hybrid striped bass was caught at Heritage Lake in 2014 by veteran fisherman and resident Brian Waldman. The record fish was 29 inches long! Some of the best Indiana fishing is at Heritage Lake in West Central Indiana thanks to our wonderful, dedicated Property Owners Association, especially the lake committee members who work tirelessly to manage the health of the water & the fish population in this Indiana lake.

Heritage Lake is a private 320 acre lake in West Central Indiana stocked with blue gill, crappie, striped bass, large mouth bass, and walleye.  Brian even recorded a wonderful Indiana fishing video on Heritage Lake showing how to teach kids to spoonplug. What a great family activity! Because the lake is private, only property owners and their guests are allowed to fish. Many of my best memories are fishing with my 3 boys on our beautiful lake.

My son’s big catch on Indiana lake at 9 yrs old

The  Heritage Lake Property Owners Association has several committees served by volunteer property owners to keep Heritage Lake and our common properties in top condition. The lake committee is responsible for conducting assays of the fish population, stocking the lake, and weed control. Brouhard Realtors have sponsored the lake committee’s major fundraiser, the ‘Fest ‘n’ Ski’, since the professional and amateur ski show first began many years ago. It is a wonderful annual event in August I highly recommend!

I guess you’re wondering how you can get in on all of this fantastic Indiana fishing action, right? I can help you figure out how you can be on the water this spring participating in the fishing tournaments and bringing in your own record catch on this Indiana lake. The location of our lake, only 28 miles west of Indianapolis, is convenient as a summer home haven for residents in and surrounding the Indy area including Carmel and Zionsville. The commute is only 2-3 hours from Chicago, Cincinnati, and Louisville and the perfect location for an Indiana lake house.

Indiana Fishing at Heritage Lake

Imagine yourself escaping the hassles of daily life, lingering on the water all day and into the evening! You can also enjoy all the Heritage Lake amenities including the great fishing if you own a lot at the lake even if you do not build a home.

There are a few different ways you can become a Heritage Lake property owner. Heritage Lake waterfront homes start at around $200,000 and range up to the million dollar range. The waterfront offers homes from small fishing cabins to luxury waterfront estates! Off the water, homes start around $90,000 and up. Off water lots are affordable and usually range from $3500 and up. Waterfront lots are available from $79,500 to $279,900.  If you own a lot but not a lakehouse, you can enjoy the Heritage Lake Campgrounds and there are boat slips for lease at the marina.

RE/MAX Centerstone Brouhard Realtors has been Heritage Lake’s expert real estate team since 1987. It makes a difference when you work with an expert in this niche market. You’ll be glad you did! Darrel and Teresa Brouhard know the lake like the back of their hands since they have resided in 3 different waterfront homes since 1988. It would be a privilege to help you understand all the ins and outs of owning property on this amazing West Central Indiana lake!
