Geist Waterfront Homes

Geist Reservoir currently offers many great waterfront options.   With Memorial Day weekend approaching, we are seeing more and more people interested in purchasing waterfront homes on Geist.   Currently, there are 49 waterfront homes and condos available from $149,900 to $5,950,000 and 6 pending from $899,900 to the 2008 Dream Home for $2,900,000.  In the past 90 days, 8 homes have closed from a home in Masthead for $560,000 to 6038sqft ranch with walkout basement in Admirals Pointe for $1,050,000.   Signed contracts on purchases are up signficantly now due to the time of year, low interest rates, and the improving economy.

There are many great neighborhoods that offer homes for sale.   If you are looking to live on the side of Geist that offers Hamilton Southeastern Schools as many people currently do, the best options are Anchorage, Bridgewater,Cambridge, Canal Place, and the northern parts of Masthead.   The Marion county side of Geist offers Lawrence Twp. schools.  These neighborhoods include Masthead,Admirals Bay, Admirals Sound, Admirals Pointe, and Feather Cove.  

If you are looking for a new or newer home the newer areas are Cambridge and Canal Place. In fact there are many lots available in these neighborhoods as well that you can build your dream home.   In Cambridge, many new lots just opened because they expanded the lake into one of the northeastern gravel pits.   They have formed lots all around the water.  There are a few waterfront lots left in the older original neighborhoods such as Masthead, Bridgewater, and the Admirals.  

When you are considering buying Geist waterfront you can either buy on the main body of the lake or in a cove.  The homes on the cove offer a quieter setting and the homes on the main body of the lake offer more expansive water views.  

During the summer months, we prefer to show our waterfront buyers by boat as in our opinion this is the best way to view the homes.   If you are considering looking at Geist waterfront homes or have questions about the area feel free to call your Geist Waterfront Experts The Andrew Neal Group at anytime at 317-814-5530 or you can email us at aneal@c21scheetz.com.

Fishers, Indiana Condo Living

Fishers, Indiana offers many great condo living options.   Many people think condos are for city living only, but there are many great condo options in the suburbs as well!   In Fishers, many of my clients who buy condos are either first time homebuyers or people downsizing who do not want to take care of a lawn anymore.  Currently on the market in Fishers, Condos range from in the 60′s in Castleton to upwards of 600k on Geist Reservoir in Fishers.   The majority of condos are between 100k-200k.     One of the most popular options for fist time homebuyers are Fishers townhomes.    These townhomes have typically 3 stories, with the first floor having an office or game room, second floor has family room and kitchen, and the third floor has 2-3 bedrooms.   These units typically have balconies and many of them are all brick.   You can find these options with Ryland(Princeton Woods), Pulte(Avalon), and Centex(Townhomes at Fishers Pointe) among other communities.   There are many two story townhome options as well such as Enclave at Fisher Pointe(downtown Fishers), Country Fields(141st and 37), and Avalon(126th and Olio).  There are many one story options as well, such as patio homes(Highpoint Ridge) and 1 level condos(Highpoint Ridge and Limestone Springs). 

 If you want to live near shopping a restaurants downtown Fishers condo living is great.  I just sold a unit that was slightly over 2000 sqft in the 140′s built by Centex Homes right in downtown Fishers where you can walk to everything.  If living on the lake with access to boating is your ideal condo check out Marina Village(near Geist Marina off Fall Creek) and Watersedge(113th and Olio).  There are options for everyone in condo living in Fishers, Indiana.
