Rising Mortgage Interest Rates!

If you have been on the fence about buying a home, now is the time to buy!  Mortgage rates are jumping, delivering a one-two punch to potential buyers already dealing with home prices that have risen sharply over the past few years. Mortgage giant Freddie Mac on Friday reported that the rate for 30-year fixed mortgages has hit a seven-year high — and experts expect home-loan rates to continue rising. Interest rates tend to increase in response to inflation, which is picking up steam for the first time in decades.   Bottom Line Whether you are a move-up buyer or first-time buyer, waiting to purchase your next home based on the belief that prices will fall because of rising mortgage rates makes no sense. It may actually be a good time for you to purchase your new home sooner rather than later.  We do not see any reason for rates to stop climbing and the cost to wait may be bigger than you may think.  You should also know that mortgage interest rates are still relatively low when you consider what they’ve been over the last 20–30 years. With interest rates on the rise, you might be considering buying sooner than later.  If you’re searching on the most popular house hunting apps, you could potentially be wasting up to 47% of your time since their data is dated.  Visit our website at www.RomanskiGroup.com for up to date property information to begin your home buying journey!

Planning your Fall Party

It’s Fall y’all! It’s a perfect time to host some people in your home and yard for a Fall party. Whether you’re in the Lafayette, IN city limits or on acres of land out in one of the surrounding counties, there are so many fun things to work with that you can get creative! Pumpkins, hay bales, tractors, oh my! The possibilities are endless. We’ve been known to host some fancy Fall festivities in our day, but we want to enable you to do it too! Here are a few suggestions for you to consider while planning your Fall party!   Practical Fall Party Ideas A bonfire is a must! These crisp nights compliment a fire. Outside games keep the masses entertained! This Fall theme spin on classics make your Fall party cute too! Mini pumpkin tic-tac-toe; giant, mini-pumpkin checkers; or giant jenga are all game options! What’s a party without a little friendly competition? Bobbing for apples is always a fun Fall game or maybe a donut eating contest. We’ve done these at some of our parties, and they’re a hit! Don’t forget all things soup and all things chili. Maybe you can host a chili cook off. This puts you collecting all your friends’ grandma’s recipes for your family’s future. You’re welcome. Our favorite Fall desserts are S’mores and pie. Just sayin’. More crowd involvement can happen at a make-your-own wreath station or maybe a carve-your-own jack-o-lantern station. This is a place to be creative! Square dancing? Or maybe just a good ol’ barn dance if you have a barn? Or living room dancing if you don’t. Hay... read more

History of Indiana’s Covered Bridges

We love all things Indiana around here, and, fortunately, Indiana‘s covered bridges are easy to love. Yes, they’re cool, but, why do we have them here in good ol’ Indiana? What was their purpose? And what are their uses today?  We hope to take you on a trip down history lane, and also give you resources for more information if you’re into this sort of thing. Here are some fun, historical facts about Indiana’s shelter bridges.   History of Indiana’s Covered Bridges According to the IN.gov website, “Indiana’s covered bridge era began in the early 1830s when the National Road first crossed the state. The first Hoosier covered bridge was completed in 1835 in Henry County. We estimate that between 400 and 500 covered bridges may have existed in Indiana… Because the bridges were constructed with timber, they were covered to protect them from the elements. They were often the largest covered area in a community and were sometimes used for revival meetings, weddings, and political rallies… In 1998, however only ninety-three covered timber bridges remain in the Hoosier state. Many bridges have fallen victim to local apathy, the forces of nature, arson, and/or careless driving.” Click here to download the entire file IN.gov provides for more information on history and covered bridges. There is even available charts for where to find the current ones in each county.   Present Day Information on Indiana’s Covered Bridges Currently, the organization, the Indiana Covered Bridge Society, Inc. cares for, advocates, and protects our loved and valued covered bridges.  There are 31 shelter bridges in Indiana standing today. Parke County, and their surrounding counties,... read more

Listen to what Mike & Mike think about the Romanski Group!

They are hands down THE best real estate team in the whole freaking country. They CANNOT be topped. Genuine, kind, professional, knowledgeable, fun, friendly and whether buying or selling, they have your back. If you are selling they have a marketing program that cannot be matched. It absolutely does not get better then these two and their team!! I’ve lost track of the # of homes Erin & Jim have helped us/me buy and sell. At least 3 or more.
