10 Reasons to List Your Home in the Fall

Posted in Carmel/Westfield Neighborhoods on October 5th, 2017 by Anna Stout – Be the first to comment

Are you wondering if you should put your house on the market during the fall? Oftentimes potential Sellers ask this question because they are concerned about the upcoming holidays and the change in weather. So, I’ve listed a few points you might want to consider:

  • There are still many buyers in our market who were not able to find the home
    of their dreams because demand has been high and inventory has been low.
  • Buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the winter months, and less
    competition for you is a good thing!
  • Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in the spring, there will
    be less demand for your particular home in the fall. Less demand now means
    more money for you!
  • Some people must buy to reinvest “tax free exchange funds” for tax reasons!
  • January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since
    transferees cannot wait until spring to buy, you need to be on the market
    during the holidays to capture that market!
  • Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to
    restrict showings during the days you would prefer not to have people in the
  • Most people think they should list in March and April. So, listing ahead of
    time, you can be one of only a limited number of properties available.
  • Builders have really cut back on new construction inventory homes during
    the fall & winter, so buyers are forced to buy preowned homes.
  • By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer
    during the spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money.
    This could allow you to sell high and buy low!
  • You can sell now for more money, and arrange for a delayed closing or
    extended temporary lease back (extended occupancy) until early next year!

Carmel to improve city zoning ordinance-5 min code

Carmel to replace, improve city zoning ordinance

Fewer pages / 3 new zoning districts / ‘5-Minute’ code 

CARMEL, IN – After an 18-month long review of the City of Carmel’s subdivision control and zoning ordinance, planners with the Department of Community Services unveiled a new and improved version that streamlines topics, adds helpful images, eliminates redundancies and has about 80 fewer pages. The proposed ordinance also establishes three new zoning districts to better reflect the unique growth trends of the city, eliminates three outdated districts and promises to make it easier for users to quickly find what they need.

While this is a complete replacement ordinance and zoning map, most of the content remains the same as the existing ordinance. The proposed new Unified Development Ordinance replaces both the subdivision control and existing zoning ordinances.

“This is long overdue. Carmel’s zoning ordinance has been modified many times over the years, but the changes we are making this time will help us do a better job of guiding our unique growth in redevelopment areas, such as Midtown, as well as the U.S. 31 Corridor and other rapidly changing areas of our city,” said Mayor Jim Brainard. “We also paid close attention to making this new ordinance easier to use for developers and residents. We are calling this our ‘5-Minute Code’ because our goal is to make it possible for anyone, not just attorneys, to find what they need in five minutes or less.”

The proposed new Unified Development Ordinance was introduced Tuesday night, March 21, at the Carmel Plan Commission, which will review the changes, host a public hearing and send it to the Carmel City Council for final approval. The City contracted with Bradley Johnson of Ground Rules to review and update the ordinance.

There are no substantial changes proposed to residential areas in the city.

Among the notable new features:

  • Three new zoning districts have been added: Urban Residential, Urban Core and Office Core. These districts will emphasize “mixed-use” trends in Carmel’s redevelopment areas such as Midtown.
  • With changes proposed for the Meridian Corporate Corridor, it will be possible for the first time to mix residential and office units the same building, something previously prohibited. Changes have also been made to setbacks and landscaping rules to encourage more infill development.
  • Three existing zoning districts have been removed: Agricultural (AG) and Manufacturing I (M-1), districts covering large farms and heavy, intense manufacturing that have become obsolete as the city has developed and do not appear on the existing map; and Old Meridian District (OM) which served its original purpose to introduce mixed-use development to the area. The new mixed-use districts will largely replace the OM District. Farming is still a permitted use but will be regulated under another zoning classification.
  • All legal definitions within the ordinance have been placed under a single section, instead of being scattered throughout the document.
  • References to various steps in zoning have been made more consistent, replacing the current use of multiple acronyms and titles.
  • Helpful boxes, color icons and hyperlinks have been added throughout the new ordinance so that online users can quickly point and click their way to their desired information.

A public hearing will be held at the Carmel Plan Commission on April 18. You can find an overview and a copy of the proposed ordinance on the City of Carmel website here:

Listing Your Home During the Holidays

Posted in Carmel/Westfield Neighborhoods on November 30th, 2015 by Anna Stout – Be the first to comment

Listing Your Home During the Holidays

If you’re thinking of listing your home at the end of the year, or your home is still on the market when the holidays roll around it’s a well-known fact that home sales drop off come the end of the year. Just because business slows down in the real estate world, doesn’t mean you can’t sell your house around the holidays. So check out these quick tips for a little help for the holiday season:

1). Still put up your decorations…but when you do, keep them simple. Don’t overdo it. Many buyers will love seeing your house all decked out for the holidays and decorations can make your house feel more comfortable and homey.Listing your home for the holiday- Anna Stout

2). Don’t neglect the outside…even though the weather might be frightful, take care of your exterior. Rake up leaves, trim bushes and pull out dead flowers. Make sure paint isn’t peeling off the siding or windows. Remember to bring in delivered packages right away off your front porch, so buyers are tripping over them when they come for a showing.

3). Serve cookies and hot chocolate…when you have a showing, set out freshly-baked Christmas cookies and have Christmas music playing softly in the background. Host an open house with cookies and a hot chocolate or coffee bar. Burn candles with yummy Christmas scents before buyers come over.

4). Be patient if you are listing your home during the holidays…the number of buyers during this time of year is lower than normal, so you might not get the traffic you want. Stay patient! Enjoy the season and try not to stress over your house being on the market.


And, contact me if you have any questions about selling your home or if you are looking to purchase a home. I’ll help walk you through the process and help you find the home of your dreams.
