elkhart county: Elkhart County Multiple Listing Service-Can I Sell My Home Without It? - 04/10/08 02:51 PM
In Elkhart County, Indiana the Multiple Listing Service, also known as MLS, means a computerized listing of virtually all the homes that are for sale in a specific area.

elkhart county: You Found Just The Right House In Elkhart County, Indiana - 04/06/08 12:48 AM
The commotion of house hunting is finally over.  You found just the right house here in Elkhart County, Indiana and your offer has been accepted.  It was a great buy.  Now, just one more hurdle --getting a loan--and you're home free.
Often buyers are so eager to get this "final detail" behind them, they rush through this portion of the transaction and end up with less-than-ideal terms.  Borrowers, however, have something lenders want--their business.  This positions them to negotiate the best possible price (cost of loan), terms and service.
Let's look at price, or the cost of the loan.  The first thing to … (0 comments)

Every prospective homeowner would like to buy the best property in Elkhart County and their favorite neighborhood at the lowest price.  That's the ideal situation, but in most cases, it's not easy to do.  Usually, buyers have three property choices in an area --the sharpest, a mid-range or the "bottom of the line."
