This lovely four-bedroom home in the Bay Knoll subdivision in Houston/Clear Lake was just listed by Rose King, with UTR-Texas, Realtors. Offers started coming in on the first day of showings, and the sellers are happy to be under contract after just three days on the market!   The sellers listened to the advice of their Realtor to price the home correctly, and to prepare it for showings. Everything was de-cluttered, clean and sparkling when the doors opened to the first potential buyers. The first offer came in quickly, but the sellers took a little time to look for just the right buyer.   The real estate market in the Houston area is heating up once again. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, you need the help of a good, experienced Realtor to guide you through this crazy real estate m...

SO You Are Ready TO Sell Your Home, What Next? SO You Are Ready TO Sell Your Home, What Next? Seems like an easy question to answer but when it comes to selling your home it may seem a bit confusing and scary. Often times when people are looking to sell their home, they are in search of a new home as well. Sometimes people are selling in a time of family distress ie., divorce, job loss, etc. and other times people are looking to up size or downsize. What ever your reason is to sell, NEVER GO AT IT ALONE. If you think selling is a hard task to swallow, going at it alone without a professional REALTOR is a daunting task that leave most with the realization that they should have hired a REALTOR to begin with. The first thing you should do when deciding to sell your home is to be sure this ...

You’ve made the decision to buy or sell a house. You’ve been thinking about it for a long time and you believe the time is finally right. You start telling your friends and family, only to get opposing opinions. Now, you’re not sure anymore. Buying or selling a home is exciting, especially when the market is right for it. While most transactions close without incident, there can be some issues. I don’t want to scare you away from your decision…not at all. But, I thought I’d share 19 things that could go wrong with a real estate transaction: Listening to friends and family members who are not real estate professionals. Being inflexible or uncompromising in negotiations. The home inspection reveals major defects. The seller refuses or forgets to make repairs. The appraisal comes back sign...
