What’s Your Home Worth?

Are you curious about your home’s worth?
A comparative market analysis (CMA) is key to providing real estate value. This is where real estate professionals, like me, show you what your competition is…spelled out in black and white.
loan_prequalify
As your Realtor, I compile data from the Metro Indianapolis Board of Realtors to create the CMA to determine where your home will stand in comparison to other homes on the market, and those which have recently sold, to determine the highest possible asking price.The CMA is qualified and quantified, and is typically designed to give a quick snapshot of information such as number of bedrooms and baths, approximate square footage, amenities, age of the home, property taxes, and more. The Comparative Market Analysis can go be put together for years ago, a month or a week ago. CMA’s can cover areas as narrow as one or two streets surrounding your home, or as broad as an entire subdivision like Summerlake, Fox Run, Hickory Hills, Fiddlers Green, etc.
What isn’t included in the CMA are factors such as the emotional appeal to buyers based upon subjective things such as curb appeal, interior decor, color, lighting, room flow, paint colors, etc. Some of these things ultimately create a higher price (or lower price) than the home next door. At the end of each home’s information on the CMA report there will be a brief statement provided by the listing agent. This statement is usually a combination of fact and subjective opinion, and will generally cover selling points. It could be anything from “kitchen and master bath completely remodeled in 2010″ to “Charming! Must see!” For privacy reasons, the CMA that is offered for public consumption does not list every piece of information that has been obtained by the seller’s agent. It will give the what, when, where, but it won’t give the who (the seller’s identity) and the why (why the home is being put up for sale.) This is to protect the seller’s privacy and to keep from inadvertently giving the buyer an advantage in a distress situation.
The CMA is clearly a selling tool and should be interpreted by a professional or with complete objectivity by the seller or buyer. Remember that the CMA is also a buying tool; it is taken just as seriously by the buyer and his agent. As a seller, you are going to use the CMA to ask the highest possible price for your home; as a buyer, you would use it to find reasons to either choose or eliminate your home, and to arrive at the lowest price possible.

June Jamboree Is Almost Here!

School’s out for summer! And, the June Jamboree is almost here!

jj_merry_go_round

The Pendleton Lions Club will once again be bringing the town of Pendleton our very own June Jamboree! The Jamboree takes place Tuesday, June 3rd through Saturday, June 7th! This annual Pendleton tradition that goes hand-in-hand with the end of the school year! Now that the kids are out of school, it’s time to celebrate with the jamboree.

Bring your families to Falls Park for the June Jamboree and enjoy the “famous” Kiwanis K-Burgers, funnel cakes, corn on the cob, cotton candy and all the well-known carnival food favorites. The park will be lined with rides for the kids, the ferris wheel, carousel, carnival games and other attractions. The vender tent will also be in the middle of the park to meet and talk with local businesses and service providers.

Tickets can be purchased in advance from a Lions Club member or at Marsh. The rides will all be one ticket. There is no admission charge to come out to the Jamboree…so load up the car and come visit this annual event to kickstart your summer!

Chartered in 1927 with around 50 members, the June Jamboree is just one of many of the events the Pendleton Lions Club puts on each year in Pendleton. The Pendleton Lions Club uses funds raised from the Jamboree to sponsor eyeglasses for children and also local Boy Scout troops.

Another key group that makes the annual Jamboree possible each year is Luehrs’ Ideal Rides, Inc. Luehrs provides fun rides and carnival games for all to enjoy!

Shop Local. Check Out Farmer’s Markets Around Us.

Part of the fun living in a small town like ours is the tight-knit community we have and the events we are able to enjoy.

Each Saturday, farmers around the area fill markets with locally grown fruits, vegetables, homemade cookies, pies, crafts, art and more. We can start our Saturday morning with a stroll through the park shaking hands and talking with those who have harvested the food, prepared it and crafted the artistic designs. It takes the notion of “shop local” to the grassroots level.
