  When’s the Best Time to Sell Your DeSoto Home? Here are some do's and don'ts for deciding when to sell: DO give serious thought to when would be ideal for you. Consider your family, your lifestyle and all the other happenings in your life. DON'T base your decision to sell strictly on the season. Or your mother's advice or your neighbor's, for that matter. DO spend time to prepare your home for sale. DO consider whether your area is in a buyer's market (with more houses for sale) or a seller's market (with more buyers than houses). You will sell faster in a seller's market, which is what our Dallas area is now in.  Inventory levels are at an historic low, and buyer's are having trouble finding a home to buy. DON'T forget to consider the buyer. Remember what attracted you to your home a...

  Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using Desoto TX FHA 203k Loans.    The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offers a special government loan program that a lot of people are not aware of. This FHA loan program allows the buyer or existing owner of a home to do significant amounts of remodeling or updating to their home without a higher cost second lien.         However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. But you can repaint, replace flooring, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, add wallpaper, replace appliances – even add a room to an existing structure (which can significantly add to value as you increase the square footage of your home).         This loan program has many ad...

Looking to purchase a home or refinance using your Desoto TX VA Loan benefits?  The rate you can obtain is a big factor in determining the lender you will choose as well as what your payment will be.  The market can be volatile, and Desoto TX VA Loan Rates can change daily, and can even fluctuate during the course of a day.  So why does this happen, and what determines the interest rates you can get?  All home loan products are secured by mortgage bonds, or securities  that are traded daily on wall street like stocks. These bonds are what backs the mortgages, including Desoto TX VA Loan products. Mortgage bonds are also called mortgage backed securities.  Just as the stock market can go up and down during a day, so can mortgage backed securities, therefore influencing all mortgage rates...

  Preparing Your Home For Sale: The Exterior Never underestimate the importance of curb appeal. An attractive, well-maintained home will generally sell faster and for a higher price than a similar home that’s outdated. Let’s look at your home’s exterior objectively and see what repairs and updates it needs to sell for top dollar. Keep the lawn mowed and shrubs trimmed. Remove dead tree limbs and other yard debris. Plant fresh shrubs and flowers. Arrange outdoor items neatly and put away lawn equipment. Check siding, trim and doors – especially the front door – for dirt and peeling paint. Check your fence. Check loose or damaged roof shingles or flashing. Clean and repair broken windows or screens. Clean gutters and downspouts. Wash the driveway and sidewalk. Clean and neatly arrange the...
