The time has come to take a look at the year of 2009 and see how the Indianapolis real estate market performed. Over the next few days, I will be posting the year end reports for most of the Indianapolis market. Today, we start with Indianapolis itself.

One of the area’s on Indianapolis real estate I love to work with is Geist waterfront homes.

I am finally writing the most overdue blog post EVER, the long winded answer to the question I probably get asked most often: What is a short sale? Quite simply, a short sale is when the owner of a property owes more than the house is worth and they ask the bank to accept an offer less than this amount in lieu of going to foreclosure. For example, a seller has a houses listed for $100,000 and they owe $125,000 on the mortgage. They receive an offer from a prospective buyer for $90,000 and ask the bank to take a loss of $35,000 instead of taking the home to foreclosure, re-listing it, and selling it themselves. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not.
