 It can happen, and it did! There is a buyer for every property. Sometimes it takes many showings, sometimes just a few, and less often only 1 showing before an offer to purchase is received. We just closed escrow this week on a Northwest Indiana Home For Sale listed by F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate that only had 1 showing - which led to an accepted offer and it's now SOLD! Repeat Clients called us to list their home for sale. After many online"hits" both from public and agents on the local NW Indiana Multiple Listing Service. and other marketing sites, we received and confirmed a showing request, which led to a second showing, which led to an accepted offer and closing! Talk To Tucker for all your Northwest Indiana Real Estate needs!

The 4th weekend this home was listed (day 36 on the Market to be exact) we had 2 separate interested parties come through the home with their REALTORS each scheduling a second showing a day later! Now, 2nd showings for us in THIS MARKET mean one thing: get the REVERSE OFFERS typed up and ready to present to the Buyers Agent!

The 1,530 acre (66.2 km²) Dunes Nature Preserve makes up the bulk of east side of the park and includes most of the park's hiking trails and dune landscape.

Like all Indiana state parks, there is a fee for entrance into the park.The beaches were formed by winds coming off Lake Michigan, which drop sand when the wind hits plants, dunes, and hills.
