       I was talking to a for sale by owner client, and he was so upset that he had to pay about three to four thousand dollars to a by owner system that didnt work. He was shocked, he thought agents would show his home, and I told him that one of the reasons you get buyers to come through your home is because of a co-op split. Buyers want representation , and for a good reason. Thats one of the reason your house sells is because agents brings buyers to your home, and you get a better price with an agent for you home.

I know in the state of Indiana that the Appraisal Standard will be going up in 2008. This will help make the appraisal industry and the over real estate market a better place to do business. Even on the Mortgage front they are makeing it so that in 2008 you must be certified. Making the right steps to make the overall industry a higher standard to promote fair market value.

 Support your Region Brewery. Fnd out more interesting stuff about The Region http://www.regionreview.com/The info below and much more can be found at their very cool websiteshttp://www.threefloyds.com/http://www.threefloydspub.com/Three Floyds Brewing opened its doors in 1996 as a very small brewery in Hammond, Indiana. Acceptance of the beers took off right away, initially as draft only products, then contract brewed bottles were added. As demand grew, we moved to Munster, added our own bottling line, and began receiving awards and compliments about our beers-according to Ratebeer. com, we are rated as the second best brewery. Currently we distribute in 10 states.

Take the time to see the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra this season. You will be glad you did. Sometimes great assests like this are taken for granted when they are right in your backyard. Check out their schedule and mark your calender. In the summmer, they may be found in Area parks having a free concert. I seen them at a park in Schererville during the warm months and I was very enjoyable.If you would like more Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra Information, please visithttp://www.nisorchestra.org/core/Season/season_main.asp This information is Courtesy of Willems Realtorshttp://www.willemsrealtors.com/
