Ryland Homes in Fishers

Ryland Homes, one of America’s top home builders, is currently developing three neighborhoods in Fishers.  I have a lot of experience in dealing with Ryland Homes from representing buyers, reselling their homes throughout Fishers, and I also personally built my first home in 2006 with Ryland.   Ryland is hands down a top 3 builder in Fishers.  Their three  Fishers communities are Tanglewood, Westminster, and the Boulders.

Tanglewood(126th and Brookschool)- Priced from $201,995, 5 homes available, and over 10 lots available to build on

Westminster(136th and Marilyn)-Priced from $164,995, 4 homes available, and many lots with  the fourth phase about to open

Boulders(East 104th in Geist)-Priced from $253,995, with 1 home available, call for lot info.

Tanglewood is one of the best values as it has a good entry level price point, larger lots, a clubhouse, pool, playground, and premiere East Fishers location.   Westminster is the least expensive and has a lot of character surrounded by a llama farm, walking trails, and around the corner from Hamilton Towne Center shopping.  Ryland has plans to build a pool but has not done so as of yet.  The Boulders is pretty far east, but offers a close proximity to Geist Reservoir.   All three offer HSE or Fishers schools and you will get the same quality product in all three, the model size and lot sizes will vary.  

Ryland offers great options from hardwood floors, 2 story entries, 2 story great rooms, gas fireplaces, gourmet kitchens with stainless appliances and solid surface countertops, to finished basements.   When considering building or buying a home with Ryland we recommend having an experienced Realtor to guide you on what to do and have them negotiate on your behalf to get the best deal on the home.   With my experience dealing with Ryland I have found that you can get a better deal if you buy one of their spec homes that are already built or being built(they call it an inventory home).   I just represented clients in Tanglewood on a spec and got Ryland down over 25k off their original price.  

I completely recommend Ryland Homes if you are looking to build or buy a brand new home in the Fishers area.  Call The Andrew Neal Group, DealwithNeal Fishers, at 317-814-5530 or contact us next to this blog if you would like more information or would like to go look at Ryland Homes in Fishers.

Gray Eagle Golf Course Community, a great place to live in Fishers

When my clients come to me and say they want to live in a family friendly, newer neighborhood, by a great builder and has character, the first community that comes to mind is Gray Eagle.  Gray Eagle is a neighborhood built by national home builder Pulte Homes, one of the top builders in Fishers, Indiana.   Gray Eagle Golf Course runs throughout the entire community  which is a great feature.   There are hills, woods, streams, and a top golf course, and within minutes of Geist Reservoir what else could you want? Maybe a beach and ocean, but not in Indiana!   If you like golf, pools, playgrounds, friendly neighbors, and a neighborhood feel Gray Eagle is the place to be. 

Prices range from the upper 200’s to 400’s for the Pulte homes with 3-6 bedrooms, basements, expansive views etc.   I love selling homes in Gray Eagle and at one time had two next door neighbors both on the 17th hole of the golf course.  Talk about prime Real Estate, especially in the 300’s where many places in the country you may not even be able to get a first time homebuyer ranch for that price.

The current market stats for Gray Eagle look pretty good.  With a healthy turnover of homes, many due to corporate relocation, Gray Eagle always has some activity going on in the market.  In 2011 currently, there are 18 homes on the market and 12 sold, and 4 currently pending under contract.  

Regardless of your price range or taste, you will find a quality home at a great value in Gray Eagle Golf Community in Fishers, Indiana.   Call us at 317-814-5530 if you have questions about the neighborhood or if you want to see homes or sell a home in Gray Eagle!

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 [email protected].
