Heritage Lake Views from a Hot Tub

Lakeside Hot Tub Opens Up Heritage Lake views!

Bald Eagle viewed from Lakeside Hot Tub at Indiana Lake!

I’ve lived on Heritage Lake for nearly 30 years. The view from the lakeside deck has varied over the years, from the end of a small cove in Mill Springs to a more panoramic main body view in Patriots Landing. Sitting lakeside and taking in the Heritage Lake views is a favorite past time for sure, but try it in a hot tub!

Heritage Lake Views

Views of snowfall on private Indiana Lake

Sitting in a lakeside hot tub offers the best in relaxation and views! You see, a lakeside hot tub beckons you outside even in snowstorms, turning the ‘worst’ snow storm quickly into the best!

Sunset over Indiana Lake

You also venture out at night more often so you see full moons, falling stars, and a beautiful sunset almost every day. I even checked my blood pressure a few times before and after a hot tub soak to learn it was notably lowered so this might be included on the list of hot tub benefits. A few days ago, the normal beauty was enhanced by a family of bald eagles. The mature eagle sat statuesque in the 

Bald Eagle over Indiana Lake

tall tree about 70′ feet away while 2 large juvenile eagles playfully flew with each other, making 360 degree turns as they wrestled mid-air! I felt like a Nat Geo explorer only I was wet and did not have my iPhone so now it’s forever in my memory! The Eagles are here all year-long but most visible in the off-season. Once the leaves are off the trees, we get to view the eagles almost daily. We’ve seen them teaching their young and eating fish dangling from their talons in the tree.

Heritage Lake Indiana is pretty much a wonderful place all year-long! A hot tub is a bonus, but not necessary to enjoy this beautiful 320 acre play ground in all four seasons! Even offshore, water access properties enjoy all the amenities Heritage Lake offers.

Indiana Fishing

There are 2 clubhouses with rooms property owners can rent for events such as family reunions and weddings. The activity center has a pool table and other games the youth really enjoy in the summer including a great basketball court, tennis courts, swimming pool with water park, soccer fields, and more. There are 3 swimming beaches with parks and picnic areas on the lake, as well as 3 fishing ponds.  Speaking of fishing, Heritage Lake is stocked with blue gill, bass, crappie, walleye, and more to offer some of the best Indiana fishing ! Oh yes, in the winter there is ice fishing and ice skating, too! A year round Indiana haven! What more could you want?

Brouhard Realtors are your Indiana Realtors and have served as the experts in this niche market for decades. Now is a good time to list your Heritage Lake home but be sure you talk to the Heritage Lake Expert Darrel Brouhard before you list. Darrel first sold Heritage Lake lots in the 70’s for the developer and has sold Indiana waterfront homes, lakefront building sites, and offshore water access properties since 1987. His team includes his wife and partner for 29 years, Teresa Brouhard, and Nichole Houser as their Office Administrator for 3 years now!  They know the ins and outs of the market and understand values placed on the amount of shoreline, site on the water, and the most important water view. In other areas in the development, factors such as locations on common property or the nature preserves can differ greatly. Don’t depend on anyone who does not understand these specialized values to arrive at a list price for your Heritage lake home! Contact Darrel today!

Top Indiana RE/MAX Team

Brouhard Realtors is a top Indiana RE/MAX Team in August 2015 at #13 in the State

Why is working with a top Indiana RE/MAX Team Important?

I’ve been in business for over 28 years, and since it is the real estate business, it seems there is a fine line between bragging and marketing. I mean, if you’re a great real estate sales team, the very backbone of your business is not only to do a really, fantastic job ALL the time, but to also let everyone know the job you’re doing. After all, if you don’t let the public know you’re a top Indiana real estate team, they won’t know they need you! 

So, today I am sharing another RE/MAX top producer balloon ad from RE/MAX Centerstone in Avon.

I need to share news that Brouhard Realtors was the #13 RE/MAX team in the state for homes sold in August 2015!  First, I feel gratitude! I thank God for many blessings! Darrel and I could never do this without the support of our Office Manager, Nichole Houser. She is our tireless supporter, always giving her best, committed to our small team in a way that translates as our best foot forward every day! Then there is Brad Dawson, our all around helpful guy! Brad paints, landscapes, renovates, and does anything needed to allow us to present our listings in the best light. We are also grateful for over 28 years of selling Heritage Lake, the best kept secret in Central Indiana! What a great place to call home and to work! And we love selling farms, acreage, luxury homes, and properties throughout in West Central Indy! What a  beautiful city Indianapolis has become! It is a growing and welcoming city with many great locations to call home!

If you’re considering the sale of your west Indy home or Heritage Lake property, call us! Darrel and I are both Indianapolis natives and know the city very well. Whether you own an Indiana lakehouse at Heritage Lake or a farm in rural Hendricks County, you need an experienced real estate team. First, the Broker should have a proven track record of sales and added real estate education. Darrel is a CRS ! This means he is among the top 5% of real estate brokers in the country. The broker needs a good support team in this era of the internet, social media, and mobile devices. This is where I come in. I am the marketing specialist. I have had a website with photos of our listings since 1998! I work tirelessly to stay up with marketing in this day and age! So while Darrel is busy listing, selling, and negotiating, I am marketing your home, and Nichole is making sure everything runs smoothly. She is a wonderful ‘point of contact’ at Brouhard Realtors, kind, polite, and helpful, while ironing out the details and supporting our clients. Her photography skills are excellent! Staging is an important aspect of marketing your property and that is where Brad comes into play. He can power wash decks, paint rooms, move furniture and much more. What’s really cool about our team? You get all of us for the price of one!

Darrel and I have said many times that we work hard to give you the ‘limousine’ service of real estate sales, not the taxi-cab service! This has been our motto for years along with our benchmark belief of  ‘do unto others as you would like them to do to you’. Call RE/MAX Centerstone Brouhard Realtors today and let us put our PROVEN team to work to get your home SOLD!

Indiana Real Estate Update

Indiana Real Estate Update is Favorable!

Check Out the Most recent Indiana Real Estate Statistics

Have you see the latest market update from Indiana Association of Realtors? If not, take a

Sold by Brouhard Realtors

real estate sold signs

look. It is full of good news for Indiana home owners! The results show that statewide housing has seen an “upswing in sales, prices and new listings” and August 2015 “surpassed 2014 across the board”. Here are some of the finer points of the report:

  •  Median sale price of homes increased 5.4 percent to $137,000
  • Average sale price increased 2.6 percent to $163,923
  • Percentage of original list price received increased 0.7 percent to 94.8 percent •
  • Pending home sales increased 7.0 percent to 7,371 •
  • Closed home sales increased 5.1 percent to 7,703
  • Number of new listings increased 2.7 percent to 10,606

One big statement in the report worth noting is that the Federal Reserve sent a strong signal to buyers with unchanged interest rates in August. It is important to realize the these low rates can bring new Buyers into a market. For example, there are Buyers considering buying an Indiana lake house for the first time. Besides being an investment in fun memories for family and friends, it is also a financial investment that makes sense at these historically low rates, especially in light of the recent volatility of the stock markets.  This is also a great time for first time home buyers because no money down USDA loans are available at Heritage Lake and in many areas West of Indy. If you are thinking of “moving up”, it is a good time to list as well.

If you have considered listing your Heritage Lake or West Indy home, now is the time to act. You might be wondering where to begin. It begins with contacting a top Indiana real estate broker. Brouhard Realtors is a small but mighty team; ranking as #15 RE/MAX team in the state of Indiana for August. Talk to Darrel, Teresa, or Nichole about your goals in selling your home. At Brouhard Realtors, you work with 3 licensed realtors for the price of one! We are a proven team and our goal is to give you limousine level of service, not the taxi cab one! Call or email them today! You’ll have a free, professional market analysis in your hand in no time at all. And they will supply you with the details of the marketing plan for getting your home SOLD!
