A number of areas in the United States are suffering from terrible real estate markets.  SOUTHERN INDIANA IS NOT!  While we would prefer to have exlposive growth in the number of sales and sales prices, we are very thankful to have a real estate market with such stability.  For months at Schuler Bauer, we have maintained the opinion, in spite of reports to the contrary, that it's still a great time to buy and sell Southern Indiana real estate.  We too could buy in to the misconception that the market is down, however, the numbers do not lie.  If it's all the same, we'll just stick by the facts.

But after 11 years, she's about to lose the home she shared with her husband Jack. He died unexpectedly and now Carol can't afford the mortgage payment on her own. Carol estimates she's two months away from foreclosure and losing it all. In the latest U.S. market statistics, Kentucky ranks 36th in the country when it comes to foreclosures -- that's one for every 809 homes in the state.
