We've blogged about Cash Offers Northwest Indiana Real Estate before. This week we closed on a home for sale in Chesterton, IN 46304 listed by F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate. The Real Estate Transaction took only 14 days to close from date of accepted offer. There was no waiting on an an appraisal, underwriter or lender. Real Estate Transaction Time for accepted offer to close is usually much shorter when NW Indiana home seller accepts a cash offer, verses an offer in which the buyer goes to a bank to obtain a mortgage on the property. If you are considering selling your home in Porter County, IN now is a great time to Talk To Tucker to represent you in the sale of your home, serious buyers shop for homes year round.

After presenting an offer on one of our listed homes for sale in Chesterton, IN  we were getting hungry from a long day out showing and selling homes in NW Indiana:)    @zingpizzeria came across our twitter feed, graciously responding to an earlier tweet of ours that day.   This reminded us we were nearby their location and so we dropped in for dinner ... Some delicious antipasta salad and freshly made Artisan Specialty Pizza -> Duneland Style.   Brian (the Owner/Chef), has some awesome dessert menu items that we will definitely stop in for at another time to try, as the portions of salad & pizza were so filling, we had no room for dessert!   This Porter County, IN eatery, with close proximity to the beach / Indiana Dunes is a must if you haven't tried it yet -> just check out all the v...

This year, we have personally experienced less number of short sale listings and closings compared to 2010 when 25 % of our closed transactions were subject to a lenders approval of a short sale.  We've blogged about short sales many times before. The length of time involved in completing a short sale transaction can vary from lender to lender and be slow (months) or quick (days). Whenever we have a short sale transaction that goes relatively smoothly, we feel blessed:) This was the case with a property we listed in Northwest Indiana that closed in only 53 days after an accepted offer to purchase! It was our 1st short sale since the new MARS Law went into effect a few months ago. Indiana Short Sales are impacted by HB 1359, which, in many cases, helps expedite the transaction.   Northwe...

When we get a call from a prospective seller in NW Indiana, we always ask -> How did you find us? Tracking the origin of our business is important to us. Most new clients come from referral of family, friends or neighbors of previous customers that we've served. Other referrals happen from being a part of the Leading Real Estate Companies of The World and from being one of many F.C.Tucker's offices (Indiana's largest Real Estate Company). This time, when potential sellers called to interview us and we asked this question, the answer was : We came across homes for sale in our town on the Internet and liked the way you marketed them. Yesterday, after the closing, we thanked our client for the opportunity to represent them in the sale of their Porter County Property. Chesterton, Indiana 46...

Third Time's The Charm - Another Short Sale Property Listed By F.C. Tucker 1st Team Real Estate in NW Indiana and CLOSED.  Back in mid April we listed a Property in Porter County, IN subject to lenders approval of a short sale. Short Sales are Not a Game. First, you need a sale-able property in good condition and a cooperative seller. The short sale process is MUCH more involved than a traditional real estate transaction. Next, you have to hope for a negotiator from the lenders loss mitigation department assigned to the file who is adept at the process and at communicating in a timely fashion. WE were very fortunate = we HAD BOTH OF THE ABOVE ! However finding a READY, WILLING and ABLE buyer was a journey of 5 months. We had an offer within 7 days of listing the home on the MLS which fe...
