Blast from the past

One of our favorite things about selling real estate is getting to look at all the amazing homes around Indianapolis.  Especially in Midtown, there are always homes we view that surprise us.

Just the other day, we were previewing a home for one of our clients and stepped right onto a set from Mad Men. The home was in really good condition….it just looked like it hadn’t been touched since it was built in 1951. Pink and black bathtub and toilets, wide foyer/hallway entry with honeycomb tile, all kinds of vintage chandeliers, limestone fireplace, shag carpets, velvet wallpaper…. and the biggest blast from the past: a built-in tube television.

Definitely needs some cosmetic updating, but the layout is amazing and it could be the coolest ranch home in the area.

Contact us if you want more info on this home, or any home in the Midtown market!

Controversial Broad Ripple Development- Yay or Nay?

The controversial development proposed for Broad Ripple received initial approval at a hearing last Thursday. The mixed-use development could include an apartment complex and grocery store. The proposed building has strong opposition from nearby business owners and residents, who are concerned with the size, saying it does not fit in with the unique village-theme look that Broad Ripple is known for.

Others say it will be a much needed improvement, attracting new residents to the area. The building would cover about 2 acres, replacing the old Shell gas station and a decades-old apartment structure.

The proposal still has to go to the full Metropolitan Development Board before any decision is finalized.

What’s your take? Yay or nay for the new Broad Ripple Development?
