RE/MAX Advanced Realty and The Indy Home Pros Team are excited to announce our newest partnership in the New Construction home space with Inglenook Communities. Specifically, Inglenook’s Zionsville Community.

WATCH: Exclusive Interview with Pocket Neighborhood Expert and Inglenook Architect, Ross Chapin. 

Per their website, “Inglenook’s Zionsville community is a quiet Pocket Neighborhood tucked away on 17 acres of woodlands just minutes from Zionsville Village. Designed by award-winning architect Ross Chapin, Inglenook of Zionsville is a mix of two, three- and four-bedroom Cottage-style Home designs. The pockets of Cottage Homes will be built on 9 of the 17 acres.  The remaining acreage to the south is currently planned to remain woodlands.

Community is at the heart of this one-of-a-kind neighborhood. Whether it’s walking your dog along the community greens or simply sipping tea on the front porch, you’ll quickly find that these small daily interactions with your neighbors bring you closer together and build lasting relationships. After all, building a neighborhood is more than just constructing houses and streets; it’s about creating a community of homes and people.”

Indianapolis and Central Indiana is currently a sellers market, and the number of homes available for sale is lower than ever. In fact since 2016, Indy’s available home inventory has declined nearly 26 percent! And with fewer homes on the market, buyers are facing the frustration and stressful situations of multiple offers and bidding wars.  

But have no fear, a solution is here! This great solution for Indianapolis area home buyers is to purchase a new construction home.  With a new build home, a buyer receives a brand-new, never-lived in home that is more energy efficient than a resale, and which usually comes with a warranty provided by the builder.  There is no stress from bidding wars, and buyers get to choose the flooring, countertops and other finishes in their home. And new build floor plans are often more open and modern than existing homes on the market.  

However, when considering buying a new home, it’s crucial that a home buyer uses a Realtor. And the best thing about using a Realtor when building a new home, it’s completely free to you! Yes, the Home Builder pays your Realtor so you don’t have to!  The sales agents that you see working for the model homes are employees of the builder.  In other words, they ONLY represent the builder and ONLY have the builder’s best interest in mind.  

To make sure that you have someone looking out for YOUR best interests when building a new home, it’s a must that you work with a Realtor.  We’re there to negotiate the best price and terms, and make sure that you receive all the discounts and incentives possible!  And our service doesn’t end there; we’ll continue to monitor the entire build process to make sure that it all goes smooth for you.  

To learn more about building a new home in the Indianapolis market, please contact us today.  Message us on Facebook, or give an Indy Home Pro a call at (317) 298-0961.  We know Indianapolis area new construction better than anyone, and we’re here to help!

Whether you're Buying a New Home or searching for an existing, chances are you've heard of Ryan Homes. You've likely driven by one of their various New Construction Neighborhoods; Neighborhoods that are becoming more and more prominent in Indianapolis and the surrounding Central Indiana Area. You may even know someone who has purchased one of their gorgeous new homes, and you may find it tough not to want to do the same after visiting said person in that New Home. Lucky you, because Ryan Homes is set to nearly double the number of neighborhoods they have in Central Indiana in 2018 by adding 6-7 new communities! And because Ryan Homes is quickly becoming a prominent New Home Builder in Indianapolis, The Indy Home Pros Team knew we had to sit down with their Representatives and learn more about the company. 

We sat down with Ryan Homes' Division Sales Manager of Indianapolis, Bob Konopinski, in their Branches Community and chatted about the importantance of using a Realtor when Buying a New Home, the environmental and economical benefits of buying a Ryan Home, and the overall process of Buying and Building a New Construction Home. 

Bob explains the benefits that come with a New Home, how a New Home can be comparable to the cost of an apartment's rent, and how New Homes are now more energy efficient than ever before!

Building a new home provides you with limitless possibilities which can both be amazing and overwhelming. That’s why it is very important to have a professional realtor on your team who will make sure that your specific requirements and financial limitations are met throughout the process of turning your vision into a reality. 

But what skills and qualities do you have to look for in a realtor to help make your dream home come true? This article will guide you on how to choose the best realtor to assist you if you've decided to build a brand new home.

Find a realtor who is experienced and knowledgeable in the new construction field. One who will be able to provide important insights and guidance in selecting long-term benefits of certain features of your homes, such as durability, impact on eventual resale, or timelessness

Building your dream home is very exciting and you can be enticed to avail all the endless upgrade options which could lead you to overspend. Your realtor should be someone who can help you achieve your dream home while staying on budget.  One who has an industry insider perspective to act as your advocate, and help you spend your money wisely by educating you about the upgrades that are worth to help you prioritize.

The realtor you choose should be someone who has a strong foundation in the inner workings of various building companies and the way they do business. He/She must be able to understand your needs and provide appropriate recommendations of potential builders who will be able to match your needs.

The right location makes all the difference when choosing a place to live in.
