All you can do is try. Most renters want nice carpet or a move in ready place

Hi Eric,

Saw that you may be looking for a home in Columbia City? We have a home that we are going to be listing in Churubusco which is approx 10 mi east of Columbia City. It is a very nice home on two acres, 6years old, custom built. If you have any interest let me know and I will give you more details. Thanks, Amy

With mortgage rates historically low and home prices down 30 percent, this a good time to buy if you can qualify for a mortgage loan. Contact a mortgage broker that can explore your financial options and advice you.

Best of Luck,

Hi Allison,

I wish I could help you, but we have a similar situation in the same zip code. We put our house up for sale 4 years ago. In spite of its being priced by a very well-respected appraiser and making price reductions, we not only did not sell it, but we got very few showings as well. The agent came highly-recommended and was a high-level producer. At that time, we nixed our relocation plans, accepted a job back in Fort Wayne, and took the house off the market.

This year, we accepted a job out of state. We put the home back on the market this past spring. After several months, we went ahead and moved, but the home still has not sold. It is a very nice, well-constructed home, has been taken care of, and is in a very nice area. The price is now $15,000 below what it cost us to build it 12 years ago!

While there aren't many homes for sale in this zip code, we are aware of three others that were on the market at the same time ours was in 2008, are back on the market now, have made price reductions, and are still for sale.

Our agent is puzzled by the results and thinks that the school system could be a factor as to why we have not gotten very many showings. I hope that you will keep us posted with any marketing strategies that you try and how things progress for you. We wish you the best!

Strongly consider renting. First of all, you are going to throw money away on interest payments. Don't forget to factor in closing costs such as loan origination fees and closing costs that you will have to pay when you sell. Factor maintenance costs, too.

If you hire a listing agent when you go to sell, prepare to pay up to 7%. Property taxes are another consideration. You need to assess your own situation to determine how much not having a mortgage deduction will affect your income taxes. But all things considered, the housing market here would have to improve drastically for you to break even. Ask yourself if you want to take the risk of the house not selling or of ending up with a loss.

No one can offer any assurance that home values in the area will even remain stable, let alone increase. I don't have a product or service to sell; I just want to help others with lessons that we learned the hard way!

Matt,

The first one that comes to mind would be Canterbury Green. It is rather large, and was populated well with younger people. Not sure what the mix is, but probably a pretty safe bet. Feel free to give me a call if I can be of further assistance. Thanks! ... more

maybe you should find out more on the question and see if the count(allen) paid to have it fixed back in the 1990s.

Canterbury School has the best preschool; also check out Pine Hills Learning Place on Coldwater Road. I have had my children in both of these and was very happy with them.
