F.C. Tucker's Buyer's Services


Tucker Sales Associates stand ready to help you locate and purchase the home best suited to your family's needs and financial picture. They know the market and they know the many options of home financing. Any Tucker Sales Associate you select can provide information about any property on the market - even those offered for sale by another real estate firm. You need only one REALTOR® to help you find the home that is right for you. So if you meet another REALTOR® at an open house or model home showing, you can avoid confusion if you indicate that you're already working with us. Every Tucker Associate is dedicated to giving each customer the best service possible. The services of our associates are provided without charge to the buyer. It's the way that the Tucker Team has operated since 1918. It's the way Tucker has grown to be Indiana's No. 1 real estate company.

Before we start looking at homes...

To save you time and to help zero in on those homes in an appropriate price range, we'll evaluate your financial picture to establish a comfortable price range. We'll estimate purchase costs so there will be no surprises later - and explain them clearly and to your satisfaction. Financing options will be discussed to help you select the one best suited for your needs. We'll discuss architectural styles, locations, schools and special features that you desire. We'll explain the Purchase Agreement in detail as well as the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). A market evaluation and estimate of proceeds from the sale of your present home will be prepared and explained in detail. We'll provide you with information on all properties currently for sale, including new and pre-owned homes, single family homes and condominiums.


While The Search For Your New Home Is In Progress...

Your Tucker Sales Associate will:

  • Keep you informed.
  • Run frequent computer checks for new listings that meet your criteria.
  • Stay up-to-the-minute on changing financial conditions that may affect the housing market.
  • Be available to answer your questions or to offer assistance at any time.
  • Discuss market trends and values relating to properties which may be of interest to you.
  • Show you new homes as well as pre-owned homes if you desire.
  • Introduce you to reliable builders to build your next home if you have the luxury of time.

Prior To Closing

Your Tucker Sales Associate will...

  • Assist in obtaining homeowner's insurance. (You'll be required to have insurance that protects your home from fire, smoke, wind, hail and theft.)
  • Obtain any necessary powers of attorney.
  • Prior to closing you will need a cashier's check in the exact amount you and your broker have discussed. But plan ahead.
