Some renovations have a higher ROI than others, meaning they are more likely to increase the value of your home and provide a solid return when it's time to sell.
Kitchen Remodel: The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, and a well-designed, updated kitchen can significantly increase the value of your property. Focus on upgrading appliances, cabinets, countertops, and flooring for the best ROI.
Bathroom Renovation: Bathrooms are another area that can make or break a potential buyer's decision. A modern, clean, and functional bathroom can provide a great ROI. Consider replacing fixtures, updating the tile, and adding some luxury touches like a rainfall showerhead or a double vanity.

On Earth Day, April 22nd, we celebrate our celestial home, planet Earth. It is a day to give thanks for the world around us and to take action to protect the natural resources we depend upon.
This year, I encourage you to spend Earth Day with your family, doing one of these fun activities designed to bring awareness of the ways we can all work to better our earthly home, reduce our carbon footprints, and build lasting family memories at the same time.
1. Go Plogging! It’s the new fitness craze: Picking up trash while jogging. Go for a family jog, walk, bike ride through your neighborhood armed with rubber or gardening gloves and trash bags. Have a contest to see who can collect the most trash.
2. Have an energy-saving scavenger hunt. Send your kids throughout your home to list all the ways they can find to save energy. You can hide treats at key points, such as that drippy outdoor faucet, the light switch everyone forgets to turn off, or the appliances that can be unplugged wh. ...

Though not predictable, you can always rely on the real estate market in Indy to change. Here are some predictions for the housing market in 2022.
2022 will fall just short of record-breaking
"Zillow’s forecast calls for 11% home value growth in 2022. That’s down from a projected 19.5% in 2021, a record year-end pace of home value appreciation, but would rank among the strongest years Zillow has tracked. Existing home sales are predicted to total 6.35 million, compared to an estimated 6.12 million this year. That would be the highest number of home sales in any year since 2006."

Mortgage rates may rise, but inventory may rise as well
