Remember, the web is a great place to find information, but be careful which sites you visit and trust. State and federal web sites are safe sources of information, and your realtor’s site can be trusted as well as your bank’s or mortgage lender’s. It’s a good idea not to submit online forms unless you are sure the information is secure and will not be shared with anyone without your permission. Also keep in mind that real estate laws vary from state to state, so be sure you are relying on information that applies to Indiana.
