When we searched the Northwest Indiana MLS - (Multiple Listing Service), Town of Highland, Indiana (zip code 46322) currently has over 100 active residential properties for sale. In the last 30 days only 20 have sold, that's over a 5 month supply. We are blessed to have listed one that sold and closed recently.   These days, the real work in selling a home is not even in the mass marketing and promotion, not in scheduling the multitude of showings, or giving feedback follow up and suggestions for staging and improvements. The work of re-evaluating market prices periodically and making adjustments, negotiating offers and counteroffers pales in comparison to the work involved AFTER an offer is accepted in getting to closing the transaction.   A Full Time professional experienced Real Esta...

The answers to these questions will help you decide:1. How much equity do you have in your home? Look at your annual mortgage statement or call your lender to find out. Usually, you don't build up much equity in the first few years of paying a mortgage, but if you've owned your home for a number of years, you may have significant unrealized gains.2. Has your income increased enough to cover the extra mortgage costs and the costs of moving? 3. Is the neighborhood still a good one for your needs? For example, if you've had children, the quality of the schools may be more of a concern now than when you first purchased.4. Can you add on or remodel? If you have a large yard, there might be room to expand your home. If not, your options may be limited? Also, do you want to undertake the heada...
