7 Active Houses for Sale. There are 3 new construction houses and 4 resale houses for sale in Arbor Chase.  Since on average  2.9 houses sell per month, this equates to approximately 2.4 months of inventory.  Now, this includes new construction inventory, which will start to wind down.  But, even just taking into account resale houses, there is only 3 months of inventory.  Anything less than 4 months of inventory means the market is not saturated.  Good news!

Did you know that the Empire State Building was built with Indiana Limestone? Well, us Hoosiers are proud of that, but all that limestone in our soil leaves that horrid film on our dishes.

Team Howlett to the rescue! We have the solution and it is cheap.

Vinegar. It’s natural. It’s inexpensive. Use it!

And the winner is…..VINEGAR!

Yup, vinegar. We buy it by the gallon. Pour a tablespoon or two into your dishwasher every time you run it. It will not only keep your glasses shiny, it will actually remove any buildup that has occurred.  Cheers! Meg & Eric.

Glasses and dishes with no film. We can’t believe it. Try it!
