Some Northwest Indiana Short Sales Close faster than others. NW Indiana Home Owners who need to sell their property subject to their lender approving a short sale find us by several different ways including : Word of mouth referral from past clients   Internet search for Real Estate Brokers expereinced in closing short sales   Recommendations from attorneys who know that we have successfully negotiated short sales with banks.   This Northwest Indiana short sale listed by F.C. Tucker 1st Team Real Estate was on the market only 70 days from For Sale sign up to signing the documents at closing. We are thankful for cooperation of all parties involved and blessed to have the opportunity to help others in this non-traditional real estate transaction.

We closed today on a beautiful home we listed for sale in DeMotte, IN ( Jasper County,  46310 ).  This Listing was the result of the sphere of influence of another client who found us on one of our many websites (POINT 2) and liked the way we marketed homes and recommended us to family ! A 2 Bedroom Single Family Home is not as in demand as 3 & 4 BR properties in NW Indiana, but, as Jeff says - there is a buyer out there for just about every property type ;)  The setting was scenic and the price affordable and the condition well maintained...so an offer to purchase came from a pre-approved, qualified buyer on the 80th day of being on the market! With professional collaboration between the Buyer's Agent and Listing Agents together with the Buyer and Sellers cooperation, all the many step...

 Former For Sale By Owner in DeMotte, IN - SOLD - Holiday Shoppers are Serious Buyers! We've Blogged about Jasper County, Indiana and Homes we've SOLD in De Motte, IN before.      There is a common objection that the topic of this Blog post addresses, however, that we've heard over many years from Sellers reluctant to list their home in any other season but Spring or Summer. The false perception being : "it won't sell at that time of year" ? In our experience in the past decade, , during the Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year Holiday Season, the potential Buyers out shopping for homes tend to be more serious about purchasing! Especially in Northwest Indiana, where winter weather of Snow and Cold, discourages "Looky Louies". Recently, we Listed an AWESOME Custom Home with a Home Th...

Finding a Home for Clients who just accepted an offer on their current property, so that they only have to Move once, is our Specialty! Many of our Sellers (we represent them in Listing their Home to Sell ) become our Buyers in their next MOVE UP Home purchase! Recently, a couple who had gone through house hunting galore, were referred to us by another Real Estate Professional.  Since moving several hundred miles away, this BROKER could not see driving back & forth to show them properties.  We appreciate referrals from our Peers in the Business! Unfortunately, these clients had previously lost a few homes by Contingencies that expired because their home did not sell with previous agents. Thank God, our experience with them was different :) After an accepted offer on their property, we e...
