★★★★★ Josh Dilmaghani is the”Rock Star” among realtors! My husband and I had previously used F.C. Tucker for the last sale of our house and the building of our current home. This time we wanted a better experience and a realtor that would listen to our needs. After careful searching and reading reviews, I came across White Stag Realty. My husband and I were so impressed with Josh’s professionalism, expertise, and exuberance upon our first meeting with him. Our process with him as been amazing because of continued and consistent communication and with a fair rate! We feel like we got a value out of our home equal to the value put into it. Josh understands that and treats his clients with respect and candor. I highly recommend White Stag Realty to anyone who is selling or buying a home in Central Indiana. They are the premier real estate agency!

★★★★★ White Stag Realty was excellent and Josh Dilmaghani was proficient in every facets of our transactions from discussion, to counseling prior to listing, to assisting in setting pricing according to current market. Photos were profession quality, listing information was extremely beneficial to inspiring interest. Sale was quick, (listed one day and had 10 appointment to show the next) and we had an offer over list within 24hrs. We went from “offer” to “close” in less than 30days!!! This was the simplest closing we had ever experienced and we handled our end out of state. Josh was even instrumental in helping me with some technical challenges of sending 25 signed/notarized documents back to the Title Co. Josh kept us informed and updated every step of the way and I have the confidence that he handles all his clients in the manner in which he handle my wife and I. If you are looking for great real estate company and personal agent to handle your needs you will not go wrong with White Stag Realty and Josh Dilmaghani. Thank you for a GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!!

★★★★★ Josh was very professional. honest and hardworking. He went the extra mile in everything we asked of him through the listing and selling process. His advice and market knowledge was spot on. Josh was extremely responsive to calls, texts and emails and always had an answer. Easy to work with, very friendly. We started out for sale by owner and Josh reached out to us in hopes that we would retain him as our selling agent, we pushed back for a few weeks but he kept calling not just to get our business but answered questions and provided advice before we retained his service. The best part was a gift that he presented us at closing that fit into a collection we have, he was detailed and cared enough about us to do that. Very nice touch Highly recommend his services

          ~ Edward

★★★★★ My family and I recently had the pleasure of having Josh as our realtor. He was fantastic! Not only was Josh extremely responsive during our house buying process, but he was also very patient with all we were looking for on our wish list. He found us our dream home and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. His personality is the best and our kids loved him as much as we did, which is a huge bonus, especially with teenage boys! If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a thing. Just today, Josh came to our new home and brought us a very special house warming gift which ties into phrases we used during our closing time. We are proud to hang it in our home with it being a great reminder of Josh every time we see it. I highly recommend White Stag Realty! #TeamJOSH!

★★★★★ Josh D. is the ultimate professional and will deliver you a superb realty experience. From start to finish, Josh was very proactive in his communication and updates on a consistent basis. He went above and beyond to help reduce the stress that is traditionally associated with buying/selling a home. Josh D. is a class act and he will not disappoint. We will definitely be working with Josh D. again for any future real estate transactions and will be sure to refer our friends/family his way as well. We had our inside joke about “landing the plane” throughout the entire transaction, and Josh D. definitely “landed the plane” with a super-smooth landing. Thank you for the teaming Josh D. – Sincerely, Josh B.

          ~ Joshua

★★★★★ White Stag Realty is a full service real estate company that goes above and beyond to deliver for their clients. Josh is an amazing realtor. He’s communicative, professional, and will absolutely go to bat for his clients to make sure they have an awesome experience whether buying or selling their home. And the crazy part is that they do what they do and charge a lower commission than most of their competitors. That low commission is very helpful to people looking to sell their homes, since it means you save money in the process. I would recommend White Stag Realty to anyone I know. Great service at a low cost is tough to beat!

          ~ Jacob

★★★★★ My wife and I do not move frequently. After interviewing a couple of realtors we certainly DID NOT think we required a realtor to sell our home of 19 years, then we met Josh. His enthusiasm, and methodology towards how he sells homes is different, and his pricing structure convienced me to let him take the responsibility. We are very busy people, and his communication with us was to the point, and frequent enough that we never had opportunity to question where we were in the selling process, and he did not interfere with our day time careers with unecessary dialog. The house sold quick, and the closing went smoothly, and in the end we actually gained a new friend.

          ~ Anthony

★★★★★ Our house sold by Josh and we can’t say enough about the great service we recieved from him as our realtor. He kept us well informed through the entire process. I am sure he had other clients but he always treated us as if we were his top priority. He was more then a realtor to us and we consider him a friend. I feel like he would do anything to help you get your house sold. We will definitely refer our friends and family to him and we will definitely turn to him when we purchase another home. Thank you Josh for everything, you are one of the nicest people we have ever met and feel blessed to know you and work with you. Thanks again

          ~ Tom & Jenni

★★★★★ What can I say about Josh Dilmaghani? I mean, this guy was outstanding! He made sure everything we needed taken care of was TAKEN CARE OF. He always kept us informed, was very professional, very honest and super friendly. This was our first home and I wont lie, it was stressful with all the upgrades the house needed but Josh was always on top of everything and made sure we got the best deal possible and all the repairs were done. I highly recommend this guy for anyone buying a home, dont matter if youre a first time buyer or not, he will work with you until you are satisfied. Thank you Josh for everything, we really appreciate everything you did for us.

          ~ Jhonny

★★★★★ If you’re looking for a great realtor look no more, Josh is your guy! He is professional and very knowledgeable. He is very responsive. We had lots of questions during our home selling process and he always responded quickly which helped to lessen any stress or concerns we may have been feeling at that time. He’s a great listener as well. He knew our home selling goals and he did a great job guiding us and helping us to reach those goals. We had 5 star experience from the beginning to the very end. Josh even took the time to give us a very thoughtful gift at closing. We feel very fortunate that we had Josh as our realtor and you will too!

Current Market Conditions in Shelby County, Indiana

The Shelby County, Indiana real estate market has been on a roller coaster ride in recent years. In 2020, home prices skyrocketed due to high demand and low inventory. However, in 2022, the market began to cool off as interest rates rose and inflation surged.

According to the August 2023 RocketHomes Housing Market Report, the median home sold price in Shelby County was $210,055, up 13.3% from last year. However, the number of homes sold was down 12.3% year-over-year. This suggests that the market is still relatively hot, but buyers are becoming more cautious.

One of the biggest challenges facing the Shelby County real estate market is the lack of inventory. There are simply not enough homes on the market to meet the demand from buyers. This is driving up prices and making it difficult for buyers to find the perfect home.

Another challenge is the rising interest rates. The average interest rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage has increased significantly in recent months. This makes it more expensive to borrow money to buy a home.

Despite these challenges, the Shelby County real estate market is still expected to remain relatively strong in the coming months. The county’s economy is growing, and the population is increasing. This is creating a strong demand for housing.

Here is a more detailed look at the Shelby County real estate market, including trends in home prices, inventory levels, and days on market:

Home Prices

The median home sold price in Shelby County has been steadily increasing in recent years. In 2019, the median home sold price was $161,000. In 2020, it increased to $185,000. In 2021, it increased to $200,000. And in 2022, it increased to $220,000.

The median home sold price in Shelby County is expected to continue to increase in the coming months, but at a slower pace than in previous years. This is due to the rising interest rates and inflation.

Inventory Levels

The inventory of homes for sale in Shelby County has been declining in recent years. In 2019, there were 300 homes for sale. In 2020, there were 250 homes for sale. In 2021, there were 200 homes for sale. And in 2022, there were 150 homes for sale.

The low inventory levels in Shelby County are driving up home prices and making it difficult for buyers to find the perfect home. The inventory levels are expected to remain low in the coming months, which will continue to put pressure on home prices.

Days on Market

The average number of days that a home stays on the market in Shelby County has been decreasing in recent years. In 2019, the average number of days on market was 30 days. In 2020, it decreased to 20 days. In 2021, it decreased to 15 days. And in 2022, it decreased to 10 days.

The low days on market in Shelby County is a sign that the market is still relatively hot. Homes are selling quickly, which is good news for sellers but bad news for buyers.

Overall, the Shelby County real estate market is still expected to remain relatively strong in the coming months. The county’s economy is growing, and the population is increasing. This is creating a strong demand for housing. However, the market is facing some challenges, such as the lack of inventory and the rising interest rates. Buyers should be prepared to act quickly if they find a home that they love, and they should budget for a higher monthly mortgage payment due to the rising interest rates.

White Stag Realty provides top level service to residential sellers and buyers in Indiana to help our clients achieve their real estate goals while saving on commission!

For homeowners looking to sell, we offer discounted listing agent commission rates – as low as 1%!

What makes White Stag Realty truly unique is that our agents are full-service realtors who represent our clients at a fraction of the cost of many of our competitors.

Many of our clients ask how we can provide full service real estate agents at such competitive rates. While commission rates are always negotiable, it is common for listing agents to charge a commission between 3 to 4%. These high commission rates were justified several decades ago. Buying or selling a home prior to the widespread usage of digital technology was indeed a slow process. For example, if a potential buyer wanted to see pictures of a home, the buyer’s agent had to coordinate with the seller’s agent to obtain physical photographs of the home from the seller’s agent, and then meet with the client in person merely to show the client actual pictures of the property. Similarly, if a client wanted to see a home in person, the buyer’s agent had to schedule the showing by phone, drive to the seller’s agent, get a key for the home from the seller’s agent, drive to the home, conduct the showing, and then drive back to the seller’s agent to return the key. Advances in technology, that we now take for granted, have significantly streamlined the process of buying or selling a home. These technological advances include automated syndication of MIBOR MLS listings to other real estate websites including Trulia and Zillow, bluetooth-enabled sentrilock lockboxes, and digital scheduling of showings. The process for buying or selling a home has become streamlined over the past few decades through the use of technology. Unfortunately, the monetary savings realtors have experienced have not been passed on to the public. The high commission rates seen in today’s market take advantage of trusting consumers. White Stag Realty was created to pass these savings on to our clients.

Whether you plan on acting in the near future, or are just looking ahead, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call. We look forward to hearing from you.
