Not every Northwest Indiana Home For Sale is located in a region that qualifies it for U.S.D.A. Financing!

Before we work with any home buyers in NW Indiana, we have them pre-qualified first.

If they qualify to finance their home purchase with a USDA loan, next we narrow down the choices of the homes for sale that are geographically in the rural areas of Lake County, Porter County, or  La Porte County in NWI where U.S.D.A loans are acceptable according to the current Property Guidelines listed below*

Jeff & Grace--USDA is good program for specific areas and for individuals that can qualify. Yes, it can be frustrating, but also gratifying.  My mother's house is being sold to buyers via SDA loan.  Our fingers are crossed that all goes well to settlement.

It is nice to see you this evening.

Thanks, Grace.  So far so good, but we all know that it's not over until the check has been cashed.  I used to say 'check in hand.'  Not these days.  I saw an agent last week who had been waiting for a week++ for authorization to cash commission check.  The REO bank was the hold-up.
