You’re probably looking at homes on-line, right? Heads up – the internet is not good enough!
If you’re serious about buying a house, talk to a Realtor. A local Realtor knows the South Bend, Mishawaka, Granger, Osceola, and Elkhart area in depth. He or she knows the neighborhoods, the property taxes, the school systems, the home buying process, how to write a purchase agreement, how to negotiate repairs, and so so so much more.
This is too big of a purchase to make it a ‘Do It Yourself’ project. Call in the professionals. Call in a licensed Realtor.
