New Construction in Lafayette Reaches Critical Mass

by admin
Yes, Lafayette has many, many newer homes to choose from. Is this bad for the market, or is giving buyers the choice a good thing? I'm writing this one to hopefully get an idea of what you all are thinking! Let me know your thoughts! Email me with the link below, or just comment the post. Articles such as this one, published by MSNBC always make me want to comment on what is actually going on here.

Real estate is a local business. Each market is unique. What's happening in Phoenix, Atlanta or Las Vegas does not necessarily translate to Lafayette, IN! Remember that interest rates are still at historic lows. I expect more rate cuts to come as well.

Do you have concerns about the market? Are you afraid to even consider buying or selling? Let me tell you about a list I have...all homes that have sold in less than a month, all for within 97% of asking price. Are people buying homes? Yes. Are people selling homes? You bet. The Lafayette market HAS changed though. Don't just dive in and expect things to sell themselves.

Give us a call or email, even if you just have questions about the market. It's important to stay informed on the facts when there is so much negative media out there!

West Lafayette Good Neighbor Ordinance Still to be Decided

by admin

The fate of the neighbor ordinance remains undecided...

It will be interesting to see how West Lafayette decides to play out the concerns regarding this "Good Neighbor Ordinance". Many West Lafayette residents have complained about noise created by students living in the area. Edwina Henderson, a local resident, was just quoted by the Journal and Courier, saying she's had problems with not only noise but theft and public intoxication.

Mayor Jan Mills enacted the Good Neighbor Ordinance in West Lafayette as a way of cracking down on this behavior. However the vote evidently won't get a deciding vote prior to her leaving office at the end of the year. Will West Lafayette drop the ball on this? I don't think so. I hope not. Let me know what you think!
