just sold: Just SOLD La Porte, IN Home Listed by F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate - Only 27 Days on Market - 10/30/11 11:03 AM
 Sometimes, when listings expire and homes do not sell, home owners may feel like giving up hopes of relocating.
When the home price and condition are good, the marketing exposure can make all the difference to get sellers an offer on their property and get them moving!
 As in this case when the sellers gave us an opportunity to market their property to the masses, we did have multiple showings and an accepted offer within 27 days of being on the market with

just sold: We will help you BUY Land since they stopped making it! Just Sold Home on 18+ acres in La Porte County, IN - F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate represented the buyers. - 08/31/11 10:37 AM
Sometimes, move-up buyers want more LAND. Fortunately in Northwest Indiana, there are still large parcels of acreage available for sale with homes at reasonable prices compared to the rest of the country.
We've noticed an eastern urban movement -> Buyers from Lake County, IN  to Porter County,IN (the 1st move for these home buyers). Then years later, they called us wanting more LAND with a home.
La Porte County, IN (east of Porter County, IN) is Indiana's largest county geographically and still has plenty of Land for sale.
So Today, we represented the buyers of a home on 18+ acres of beautiful … (2 comments)

It had been over a decade since we helped a young couple with a toddler and an infant sell their first home and move-up to a bigger one in NW Indiana to accomodate their growing family.
When it was time for another change, we were humbled they asked us to help them move-up again!
Now with 3 growing children, they recently posted on our facebook page a back then and now photo of their child/children with real estate signage in their previous yards with our name on it:)

just sold: Northwest Indiana Home For Sale Listed by F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate Subject to Short Sale SOLD & Closed in 53 days after accepted offer to purchase! - 05/25/11 11:32 AM
This year, we have personally experienced less number of short sale listings and closings compared to 2010 when 25 % of our closed transactions were subject to a lenders approval of a short sale. 
We've blogged about short sales many times before. The length of time involved in completing a short sale transaction can vary from lender to lender and be slow (months) or quick (days).
Whenever we have a short sale transaction that goes relatively smoothly, we feel blessed:)
This was the case with a property we listed in Northwest Indiana that closed in only 53 days after an accepted … (5 comments)

just sold: Northwest Indiana Real Estate Client Testimonial... - 01/10/11 05:55 AM

 
 
Jeff and Grace were an absolute pleasure to work with while selling our home. We decided to use them because they had been so wonderful to work with as our buying agent only 1 year prior. Knowing that we had just bought the home we were very nervous about putting it back on the market due to the unstable economic times that we are in. Despite being concerned I was being relocated and needed to sell the home. Jeff and Grace did a great job of working with me and my family to ensure that our house was … (0 comments)

just sold: Short Sale Subject To Bankruptcy Court Approval SOLD - Schererville, IN 46375 Home listed by F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate - 11/27/10 09:11 AM
There are multiple factors that can prolong a short sale transaction.
 
Recently we closed on a property in NW Indiana that was subject to lenders approval of a short sale(Schererville,IN 46375)  AND also subject to Bankruptcy court approval of the sale of the property.
 
To date, this is our longest short sale ever = 3 months and 13 days from accepted offer to closing.
Lender approval time was double what Indiana law HB 1359 allows (requires an answer in 30 days).
Seems that laws passed to help expedite short sales have little or no effect on the lenders and … (5 comments)

just sold: Lake County Indiana Home SOLD when listed by F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate - 11/23/10 06:52 AM
Yesterday, we closed on a home we listed in Lake County, Indiana that borders Illinois (Whiting, Indiana).
 
As a child growing up on Chicago's south side, I would visit Whiting annually with my parents to attend their 4th of July parade and famous annual Pierogi festival.
 
Whiting still attracts ready, willing and able buyers today. The lakefront expansion plans along Lake Michigan's shoreline will be beautiful when completed.
 
This home listing came to us by referral from a current client. It was formerly For Sale By Owner.

VALPO MENS BASKETBALL STARTS 2010-2011 WITH IMPRESSIVE WIN

 
The Valparaiso University Crusaders Men’s B-Ball squad opened the 2010-11 season against the Indiana University Northwest Redhawks with one of the most impressive wins I have ever seen.
Not because they scored 111pts, not because they won by 46 points, it was because of the 29 Assists in the game – yes 29 assists!
It was amazing watching this team play so unselfishly.
Having a birds-eye view from court-side, the passes were precise, crisp and dead-on! This team showed that when they aren’t lighting it up from 3 point range, … (2 comments)

Thanks to past Blog posts and their Google rankings, our seller found us to list his property by doing a search online. The seller interviewed several agents found this way and chose to work with us based on the interview.
Not all short sales are the same. IMHO they take even longer for some reason than they did 1 or 2 years ago? This is our longest short sale to date = 4 months from receipt of offer  from buyer … (5 comments)

just sold: Just Sold, Hammond, Indiana Home For Sale Listed by F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate - 10/07/10 02:01 PM
Today we Closed on A Home we Listed For Sale in Hammond, Indiana. We've Blogged about Hammond before - Grace went to High School there (Bishop Noll) - so the REGION (as it is nicknamed) is very familiar to us.
Funny thing, when we listed this property, we had to drive by several For Sale By Owner Homes in Hammond, IN.
When we took down the F.C.Tucker For Sale Sign and lockbox in preparation for closing, those FSBO signs were still in those yards?

Third Time's The Charm - Another Short Sale Property Listed By F.C. Tucker 1st Team Real Estate in NW Indiana and CLOSED.
 Back in mid April we listed a Property in Porter County, IN subject to lenders approval of a short sale.
Short Sales are Not a Game.
First, you need a sale-able property in good condition and a cooperative seller. The short sale process is MUCH more involved than a traditional real estate transaction.
Next, you have to hope for a negotiator from the lenders loss mitigation department assigned to the file who is adept at the process and at communicating in a timely … (2 comments)
