We designed this website to help you learn how to get the most out of your first homebuying opportunity. At F.C. Tucker Co., REALTORS®, we have helped thousands of new home buyers find the right home at the right price. We're Indiana's largest real estate company, and one of the largest in the nation -- no one in the midwest has more experience than we do.

At this website, we'll put our experience to work for you by answering questions like:

  • Where do you start?
  • What's the difference between mortgage loan points and rates?
  • What if your credit isn't perfect?
  • How much can you afford to spend for a home?
  • How do you know if you're getting a good buy?
  • What if something goes wrong after you buy?

A little bit of information can go a long way to alleviate some of your concerns and build your confidence. That's where this web site can help. There's a lot of information here - bookmark this site and return as often as you like. In addition, I can help you get settled into the home that's right for you.

I encourage you to contact me with any questions you might have.

You really do Get More® when you Talk to Tucker®.
