Really this is a great time to buy a home. Buyers are getting what they want and can get a great price on a home in the area or market they are in. The economy and the mortgage crisis will have an impact on house prices , lets watch to see how long this buyers market can last.

 "The difference between listing your home at any price and getting your home sold is often about honesty".                                                                                                                 Suzanne Willems     First: Some real estate agents will engage in a bidding war of sorts to win a listing. This is unfortunate as no winners will emerge from this battle of inflated values. The seller is left wondering what went wrong.     Second: Every over priced home serves only to help the correctly priced homes sell. When a serious buyer is looking for a home in a particular neighborhood, the buyer agent will show all the homes available for sale, then the recent comparable sold prices to avoid overpriced homes.      Third: Commission splits are important. When inte...

 Update: July 2007   HAS NAMED SCHERERVILLE Best Places to Live: Top 100        http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2007/moneymag/0707/gallery.BPTL_top_100.moneymag/71.htmlLong before Indiana became a state, long before the founding of Schererville, people called this place the "Crossroads." The name was appropriate, for several Indian trails that later became routes for the wagons of settlers traveling west intersected here.One of those settlers was Nicholas Scherer, who arrived in the U.S. from Germany in 1846. When he came to this place at the southern tip of Lake Michigan in 1866, he founded the community that bears his name.Today, trails still cross at Schererville, the modern trails of a motorized society, U.S. Highways 41 and 30. Nearby are newer trails, I-80/94 and I-65. All these ar...

HUD becomes the property owner and offers it for sale to recover the loss on the foreclosure claim."    Anyone can buy a HUD home -- all you need is the cash, or can qualify for a loan (certain restrictions apply).   As with any large government program, there are procedures that you have to follow in order to participate.    Check out the listings of HUD homes in your area.
