Again today, I saw another home in Spring TX that is being advertised as VERY MOTIVATED SELLER. But what exactly is a very motivated seller? Is a motivated seller a seller that wants to sell? And if that is the definition aren't the majority of sellers motivated? I can not say that all sellers ar...
The other day I received a call from a seller who has had his Spring TX home on the market for two years. He was thinking about changing his Realtor and he wanted me to come and talk with him.When the seller told me his house had been on the market for two years, I wondered what could be so terri...
When I am out showing homes to buyers I am frequently asked "Can we see the garage?"  Sure no problem, I say. Until I realize that I have just spoken too soon.

In other states, how much a home sold for is considered public information and is available through tax records. This is not the case in Texas. Texas is a non-disclosure state which means the price the home sold for is not recorded. The Deed of Trust is the recorded document but it only contains ...

He said that he thought that I would just love to work with him...
If you ask Realtors how much is the Homestead Exemption for homes in Spring Texas, the majority of them will tell you that its 20%. The sad part is that this is just NOT True. The TRUTH is it depends. Now I know that sounds like a vague answer, but let me further explain. In Spring TX, your home ...
Earnest Money is the money that accompanies the real estate contract and is meant to show that the buyers are serious about purchasing the home. These funds are NOT in addition to the sale price. The Earnest Money is an amount that is negotiated between the buyer and seller. There is no set minim...
