Schmidt Farms subdivision has a nice feel to it and affordable for middle income families wanting to enjoy the amenities of both a new subdivision and a new home. Quick access to I-65 gets you to Chicago or Indy in a heartbeat should you need to commute or want to venture away from the small town atmosphere and see the sites of these major cities. No two homes are alike so the subdivision gives the sense of individuality and pride. For more information about building in Schimdt Farms, we'd love to help you out - Schmidt Farms, Crown Point

Driving on the winding roads through Ellendale Farms is like paging through a home and garden magazine filled with impeccable landscaping photos and attention-grabbing homes. The setting is lush, green and immaculate - simply picturesque.  The spacious "feel" of the neighborhood and close location to accredited Crown Point schools is ideal. Plus, its location to highways for commuting to Chicago is desirable for those climbing the corporate ladder.

St Jude House in Crown Point, Indiana serves as a safe shelter for victim of domestic violence and sexual assault and their dependent children.  Every year nearly 400 adults and children come to St Jude House seeking safety. As is the case for many shelters, St Jude House depends on many sources for funding including grants, donations, and fund raising activities.  Volunteers play a major role in the success of St. Jude House.  Volunteers work as crisis line workers, administrative assistants, client assistants, childcare/tutoring children, and assisting in special events/fundraising. One easy way you could help out is by attending the Porter County Fall Home Show taking place on October 17th and 18th at the Porter County Expo Center in Valparasio, Indiana.  While you are there, enter t...

    This is the Stimulas Package that we needed to help move the 100k and under and the 100k to 150k market in Real Estate. I have even heard some people in the Industry say that we might have a Tax Credit next year as well. The property tax cap here in Indiana that is coming up I think will start to help the Luxury Market as well. Look to see taxes cut in Half on some of your 500k and up homes when this tax goes through.

 Ive been showing a great deal of Forclosed and vacant homes in the Falling Waters subdivision. There are some great deals on the homes out there. The taxes out there are some what high. The good thing about that is that in 2009 there will be a Tax Cap for Indiana that will cap the taxes 1.5% of the sale price of the home, cutting the taxes out here in half. I think that will start to pick up the Luxury Market.

 Just as we have the choice of who we want to do business with - so do our clients! There is an old saying" the greatest friend of truth is time :) Our repeat business continues to grow from clients "moving up' or "downsizing" from properties in which they used our representation previously. Friday, we closed on a home listed in Crown Point, IN in which we represented the buyers in several previous real estate transactions over the past decade. The fringe benefits of our business are priceless...to be able to see their little one grow, to be invited to their summer barbeque's, to even stay in touch by social media! We never bring gifts to closings anymore. Waiting and making a personal visit to spend time with people face to face is, for us, the best way to say we appreciate them choosi...

One of the many great things about living in Valparaiso, Indiana is that it is a quaint, small city but with access to so much.  There is not much time to be bored.  Already this summer we have had a chance to enjoy the Porter County Fair and the La Porte County Fair.  If you missed those, don't worry.  The Lake County Fair starts on August 7 and runs through August 16, 2009.  Free petting zoo and free family entertainment will take place all week long.  Better yet, on Monday through Friday you can also take advantage of free admission to the fair before 3 pm.  Parking is available at Crown Point High School and ride the free shuttle to the fair grounds starting at 12 noon.  Crown Point High School is located 2 block south of the Lake County Fair on S. Main & 125th Ave. (Burrell Drive) ...

 It been an interesting year in real estate. When some of our buyers have searched and finally found a home, the next step was getting them pre-approved for a loan. Lenders are really checking Solds more in depth then they have been in the past. They are really looking at 6 months out instead of your standard 12 month. I think we are near bottom, not at the bottom just near it. Either way, I really believe there are great deals out there and that its a great time to buy.
