Good morning Rose,

68 South 500 West has been on and off the market 7 times first starting September 2006 for a total of 740 days on the market. Neither the mls or Assessor show a sale price as the sellers probably purchased the property and had the home constructed. The price has ranged from $519,000 to $470,000 with the current price at $500,000. In addition I know the owner of the property surrounding this one and he would consider selling some additional land if you would like a little more property.

Obviously if you would like to see this home or any others I would be happy to assist. Best regards, Rick.

Here is a link to the mls information on this one:

Rose,
My sellers on 170 N 500 W brought to my attention you thought their property had been on the market prior to Jan '09. They tell me that is not true. There was a property north of them that was on the market. This property is currently listed at $659,900. It is an outstanding property. The house has many quality, custom features and the land and barns are ideal for many purposes. There is a variance for boarding horses, kennel and commercial driveway. Hope this clarifies things. Fell free to call me at 219-465-8711.
Thanks!

It appears the land was bought on 12-6-1999, and there were existing pole barns on the property at that time. The home was constructed in 2002.
There were articles about the owners petitioning for a change in usage variance (quite interesting, the issues that pertain). They must of gotten the approval since they appear to have an active horse farm.

Rose,
This looks like an amazing property for the price of 669,900. The home features 4 bedroom and 2.5 baths. Two custom built barns are also on the property. The agent is correct in that the property history does not show it being listed by an agent prior to January 2009. The FSBO history would not be included on that property history.. I hope this was of some help to you.

Have a great day,

Hi Rose,
I recall a For Sale by owner sign along the curve this property sits on but I thought it was the day care or something a couple properties North.

If you like this property you should also check out 68S 500W 10+acres, horse barn, built in 2004 priced at $500k.

Best regards,
Rick

It's been on the market with current MLS#231960 listing for 266 days. It started in January at $769,900, and is currently $669,900. That is the only MLS listing I'm seeing for the property in the MLS system over the last 3 years. It's a fantastic looking property, and I'd love the opportunity to assist you in seeing it and purchasing it, if you are not yet signed up to work with a REALTOR.

Hi Rose,

That home is still active. The MLS # is 231960. You can view it on my website, http://www.christinemcdaniel.com.

If you're not, I'd love to help you find a home (I'm paid by the seller, so it's free to work with me as a buyers).
I do a history search on homes my clients want to view so when they view the home they have a little background information.

Rose, this home was not on the market previously, there is a home near by (similar looking) that has been on and off the market for about 3 years at 68 S 500 W . Best regards, Linda Zyla
