Should a buyer pay sell's property tax?

Answer

In Indiana taxes are in arrears not like in other states. So as I said you will have to contact title company to see if it was a final pro ration or not.

Answer

Call the title company and see if it was a final tax settlement. Some closings are and some are not depending on the paperwork that was signed at closing.

Why aren't homes selling in Merrillville Indiana.

Answer

Since January 1, 2013 110 homes have sold in Merrillville. I guess it depends which price range you are talking about as only 6 homes over the 200,000 range and  about 35 were from 100 to 200000.

why is my listing still showing up as not for sale???

Answer

Call your agent and ask her, some Multiple Listing Services (MLS) do not share information. If nothing else your agent can do a postlet and have it show up on zillow and several other sites. Make sure that you listing is on their MLS by asking the agent to send you the listing then look at the days on the market to see when they put it in.

Realtor or Fannie mae is not listing the house

Answer

Fannie Mae has time lines for listing the homes, they are fanatics about trying to make the home presentable to list. Clean outs etc.. take time because the owner must be notified of the ability to claim their belongings. Even though it has been purchased back by the bank and then turned over to Fannie Mae I have seen a 6 month period sometimes to put them on the market and that is if there is no pending litigation from the previous owner.
