Bobbie,

This property is no where near Elkhart. It is 50-60 miles to the southeast of Elkhart, close to Fort Wayne. As far as how the unemployment has affected us, remember that 16% unemployment still means that 84% are working and living here. Additionally, it depends on what area of Elkhart County you are interested in. I have one contract pending and I am writing one today and possibly another one as well. While its absolutely horrid what has happened to our main industries here and those affected by it, the area is still a good place to live and raise a family with a relatively low cost of living.

With the interest rates as low as they are, its a GREAT time to buy! If the Elkhart area is one you are interested in, I would be happy to assist you with additional information.
