jane mcmullan: MCC Tax Credit - 01/13/10 08:46 AM
Please join us at the Home Stimulus Expo Semiars on January 16, 2010 to learn about
the Tax Rebate programs available in Indiana. You can get up to $10,000 back this year,
depending on when your purchase is completed. The Mortgage Credit Certficate (MCC) program

jane mcmullan: Possible Help When Faced With Foreclosure - 12/07/09 10:51 AM
In doing research for a family faced with foreclosure in my local area, I googled something that I had not noticed on deeds in years past.  MERS .What I found was very enlightening, and hopefully helpful to millions of families that were given loans that they couldn't afford to begin with, then humiliated by a course of events that followed. I want to share this information in hopes that it will help others to not give up when they feel that they are faced with losing their home. We'll have to watch to see how this all plays out, but my hopes … (2 comments)

First time home buyers getting some really great deals, not to mention the $8,000 - $10,000 tax credits that are available to them this year. I've written 5 offers for buyers in the past 6 days. Our prices are down some, but certainly not as much as other areas in the country. It's a great time to buy even if you're not a first time homebuyer as well. Call a Realtor or get online to check out some of the beautiful properties for sale in your area.

jane mcmullan: Why a Short Sale? - 09/20/08 07:54 AM
It's beneficial  for the seller that is having difficulty making their monthly payment, and owes more on the property than it is worth in the current market.  Because they're going to be forgiven a large portion of the money they owe, and are saving their credit (way better than a foreclosure on your credit report). It also helps you leave your situation with dignity. Please call for further information if you are in a situation where you need to sell, and you owe more on your house than it is worth. It is not so uncommon these days. For additinal information on the advantages of short sale vs foreclosure … (0 comments)

jane mcmullan: What is Title Insurance - 09/20/08 07:22 AM
Title insurance is a one time insurance premium that covers you against legal problems regarding claim to your property. These potential problems can be caused by mistakes and irregularities that may have occured in the past. Typically the seller purchases a policy to ensure that the title that is being transferred is clear of any liens or encumberances. The buyer purchases a policy for the lender to insure that they title will not be clouded when the time comes to sell, and that if it is the bank is not liable.
