Welcome To CountyRealty

My name is Steve Freeman, and I am the broker and owner of  CountyRealty. I do things my own special and creative way, including designing and operating this website. Welcome.

Over the years I've come to appreciate that everyone is different. Everyone needs someplace to live; whether that's buying a home, renting a home or apartment, or living with the folks after getting out of school.  Everyone eventually comes to understand that no one lives anywhere for free. There are utilities to pay, insurance payments to make, and rents to pay; either for an apartment you are sharing or the equivalent house payment.  Everything costs money.  Regardless of hopes and desires, most things boil down to money and affordability. 

Talk to your lender about financing right away - there is zero benefit in waiting.  You could even lose the house you want because another buyer that had a pre-approval letter included with their offer. Do this today. 

The "Find Homes" database offers access to all the residential property information you might want; current listings as well as sold property data.   All it takes to look at it is an email with your name asking to look. (I must confirm your email and send you a User Name and Password to get access; and provide a Terms of Use statement for you to read.) You will find homes based on your inputs and that's all it takes to begin the process. This method lets you find and sort through properties quickly and efficiently; and you can print (or save as PDF) and use. This is a "hands-on" system and is not automated. 

A new alternate approach is a little different. It runs from the Jackson County Board of REALTORS mls system; whereas the other approach is based on the proprietary CountyRealty database.  Using the second (new) system - If you provide me with your name and email, I can set a custom search to work for you that will generate results straight to your email inbox automatically. Key benefits of this method is that the results are sent to you instantly and these results show all of the photos.  The problems are that it could fill up your inbox if you aren't careful or specific enough, (which annoys me personally) and I have to be the one to set it up to run for you.  I don't mind setting it up - I just wanted you to know it isn't something you can set up on your own. Of course there is no obligation and you can opt-out at any time. 

If you want to set the new system up, let me know! Of course, if you want, you can use both methods.  The new approach is just another tool for your toolbox.

Next give me a call or an email letting me know your schedule and what homes you might want to see and I'll start making viewing appointments. Once we see a few homes you will get a feel for what your housing dollar will buy. If you have a home to sell first, just let me know and we can get started on that too.  I do all of this with no pressures and no hassles; GUARANTEED. 

The best and only thing I offer you is the best advice I can. I do my best to be direct and to the point. I will always be honest and clear; whether giving your good news or bad. Your job is to be receptive to that advice and ask me questions when it comes to buying or selling your home. Fair enough? Also, the home I may help you buy or sell must be in Jackson County because I pay little to zero attention to the goings-on in the markets surrounding the county. I do not keep up on location characteristics, school systems, local rules regarding septic systems, water service providers, electric or internet providers or all of those other things outside of Jackson County. Instead, I focus my expertise on those factors affecting residential property inside Jackson County only

Simply stated - I like helping people buy homes in Jackson County Indiana. I am ready to go to work for you now. It's time for you to "open the gate" and get started on your path of home ownership.  You may be very surprised at what we might find together.  

I, Steve Freeman, am a licensed and very independent real estate broker in Indiana.  I only work with rational human beings. I've been serving Jackson County Indiana exclusively since 1995. In 2000 I earned the prestigious Jackson County REALTOR of the Year Award.  I am a member of the National Association of REALTORS (NAR); the Indiana Association of REALTORS (IAR); the Jackson County Board of REALTORS Multiple Listing Service (MLS); Jackson County Landlord Association; First United Methodist Church; Seymour Evening Lions Club, and the National Rifle Association.  I am also honorably discharged from the United States Navy after serving from 1980-1985.   *Scientology.org/POW 9/16/18
