Property Tax Bills Are Due Monday, November 10, 2014.

Chief Deputy Treasurer William Royce wants to remind everyone that the fall property tax due date is fast approaching.

“Taxes are due Monday, November 10 and must be in our office or postmarked by that date to be considered on time.” Royce said. He also wants to remind taxpayers that local banks are no longer collecting payments.

“We know that paying at the bank was convenient for some taxpayers but due to process changes it is no longer timely or efficient.” said Royce.

Many payment options are available; in person, by mail, electronically through the Treasurer’s website, by credit card, payments can be dropped off in the Child Support drop box on the south end of the courthouse, on your smartphone or mobile device, or you can use the self-pay kiosk at the Treasurer’s office.  There are also a variety of payment plans available.

When mailing payments, mail to: Allen County Treasurer, PO Box 2540, Fort Wayne, IN  46801-2540.

The New Haven Utility Department will begin its annual, leaf only, pick up on October 14, 2014 and continue through December 5, 2014. Leaves that are picked up are recycled into compost, which is available free to the public at the Utility Complex located at 2455 Summit Street. Therefore, eliminating trash and debris is of the utmost importance. Bagged leaves WILL NOT be accepted as this will inhibit the pick up process and the bags are not conducive to composting. Leaves should be ready on the first pick up day of the week that crews are scheduled to be in your part of the city. Leaves must be raked onto the park strip between the sidewalk and curb (NOT IN THE STREET), and away from street signs, poles, mailboxes and parked cars. Long rows are preferred over one big pile. Weather conditions, utility emergencies and mechanical problems may alter the schedule slightly, but all leaves will be picked up as close to the published schedule as possible.

More Home Owners Get Listing Price for their New Haven Properties

The most recent real estate statistics for New Haven and Allen County contain a mixed bag of both positive news, as well as indication that the residential property market may be stagnating so far this spring. Nationwide statistics –as reported in the New Haven Bulletin – suggest a veritable boom in new home constructions at the end of 2013, with single-dwelling home constructions up by over 20%. Locally, however, the real estate market is holding steady, with very modest gains in listing prices, but also signs of a sluggish spring in other aspects of residential home sales in and around New Haven.

Allen County’s Real Estate Market Developments in a Nutshell

March 2014 figures released by the Upstate Alliance of Realtors suggests overall stability in Allen County’s housing market, as well as reason for guarded optimism, but also perhaps some concern in a few areas. On a distinctly positive note, fully 92.5% of property owners who listed residential properties for sale received the full or nearly the entire asking price. This represents a modest increase in the number of sellers receiving asking price when compared to the same period in 2013. The number of townhouses and condos for sale has also dropped modestly (by 0.9%), which means that sellers in New Haven and surrounding areas face less competition when listing their home. The average price per square foot ($60) has remained steady from one year to the next, signalling both market stability for sellers, but also ensuring that first-town homebuyers are not locked out of the market due to high prices, while the median sale price dropped slightly from $107,250 to $105,000. Some in the real estate sector, however, note with caution a drop in the number of closed sales, when compared to the same period last year, from 389 homes to 351 properties in March 2014.

Despite the relatively steady nature of the residential real estate market in New Haven and the surrounding areas, the IndyStar reports that in nearby Central Indiana, the return of new constructions after a five to six period of stagnation may soon begin to shake up the property sector regionally. The number of homes being built in Indiana has increased for every month of the current year, according to the IndyStar report. A number of projects that were started in 2008, before the economic downturn, and abandoned ever since are now getting a new lease on life, thanks to increasing market confidence among major developers, such as Westport Homes and Boomerang.

Budgeting for a Safe, Rewarding Home Purchase

While the average price of a single dwelling home in New Haven is lower than the state average of $155,000 (although the local market seems to be outperforming the national average) regional home buyers need to keep in mind and budget appropriately for the associated costs of buying property. The business journal Inside Indiana, in particular, warns of so-called “hidden costs,” noting that first-time homeowners need to be sure to put aside at least 1% of the total purchase price of their new home for potential maintenance related issues in their first year of home ownership and then at least the same amount in each subsequent year. As such, if the average home in New Haven sells for $120,000, a new owner needs to be sure to save at least $1,200 for a range of maintenance costs, including an annual HVAC check-up, the cleaning of air ducts, the obligatory purchase or replacement of basement dehumidifiers, which is required by law in all of Indiana, as well as the testing and abatement of potentially hazardous building materials used in homes that were built more than 30 years ago. Conducting a thorough home inspection prior to finalizing a purchase offer is especially important, but will add between $300 to $400 to the transaction costs. Testing is also key in newly constructed homes, where it is crucial to verify that radon-resistant construction methods were used by the developer, in order to reduce the health risks, including lung cancer, posed by these fumes.

Potential sellers and home buyers in New Haven and Allen county both have a lot to consider before deciding to enter the market. The newest real estate statistics suggest overall market stability in the county. With more sellers receiving their asking price and with a spike in new constructions both in Indiana and also nationally, some of the more sluggish statistics from March may be of passing nature, as the market prepares for the traditional high season starting in the late spring.
