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!

Quick list of what Midtown Indy homebuyers want

  • Energy efficiency – furnace, windows, etc.
  • Outdoor living space – patio, deck, fire pit, and pergolas are SO hot right now.
  • Walkable– the closer to local restaurants, shops, parks, the better!
  • Parking-Having a garage adds value to your home, and is always a plus for buyers.
  • Character-people looking in midtown want to see character (built-ins, original hardwood floors, etc). Thats what makes Midtown homes so great!
  • Updates-while buyers like the character of the older homes found in Midtown, upkeep and updates are typically needed in the older homes.
  • A deal– this isn’t just for Midtown homebuyers; everyone is looking for a good deal. Look at what houses are selling for near your home, and what is currently listed. Pricing your home competitively from the start will get the most buyer’s attention the fastest.
