Yes we are starting to see the prices rise in this area. But each neighborhood is different in the south bend area so to know for sure you would need to have a personalized market analysis of your home if you are selling. Or if you are buying a market analysis could be done on particular homes you are interested in. We have to also know what the condition of that home is and what the neighborhood is selling for. We do have a shortage of homes on the market and we know when there is less supply the prices always go up. For further information regarding buying or selling I would be happy to help you! Please give me a call or email me any time!
Rachel, you can try "For Sale by Owner" sites, Craigslist, but be diligent and careful when somebody shows interest and when scheduling a showing. Unfortunately there are a lot of scams out there.
If you would like to know what a Real Estate Professional can do to help you sell your house, I would love the opportunity to talk to you about it.
It is a great time to list your house now! Good Luck!... more
Contact a mortgage professional in your area and let them know you need to know what you would be qualified for and if you are not qualified yet, what specific steps can you take to get your score(s) to where they need to be. Best of Luck!... more

I live just down the street. This is truly a great neighborhood. Cottage grove is undergoing redevelopment and has a great community of neighbors. Yes, there is trouble around,but the comment about gunfights nightly, well I heard some on the 4th of July a few years ago. Simply, I love it here!

In the country could be hard, as many of those homes are owned. I agree with your opinion of the south side. It's like its own little town out here. You literally have to come to the south side on purpose. (Unless taking 31 to Indy.) Let me know if you need help finding a rental. I know there is a rent to own situation at 4614 Crawford Court in Scottsdale. Not a lot of land by any stretch, but DEFINITELY a good, solid, safe neighborhood. Drive by it. It looks (at least on the outside) to be pretty darned nice!... more

The answer is very simple. The population of South Bend in 1960 was 132.445. The population of South Bend in 2010 was 101,166. That means there are more than 30,000 fewer people in South Bend today than there were in 1960. Rose Keyser explained WHY the population is down without mentioning the fact that it is, in fact, down,
So the number of people is down but the number of houses is probably about the same. When an imbalance like that occurs, the excess housing is going to go up for sale. And since the housing glut cuts down on rental demand too, landlords aren't buying either. Therefore, there's a lot of property on the market.... more
