My 5-year Tesla Plan is fanciful, but based on what could be the situation some Terre Haute renters can probably relate to. Read more
When the Terre Haute weather turns sizzling, you might think that house showings might go better by holding off for milder weather. After all, as the mercury rises, energy levels tend to wilt, so prospective buyers willing to take on a big initiative—like lining up a new house—might seem to be in short supply.

A couple of recent developments made the news recently that promised to impact Indiana’s real estate scene either now or in the future. The one that got most of the attention last Wednesday came from a familiar source: Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen. Read more
