Okay, so you have found your dream home.  The sellers have accepted your offer.  If you are like most people, this will be one of the single most important and expensive purchases you will ever make.  So, you need to ensure that your greatest asset is completely protected.  Let's discuss how to do just that.

  • What is Title?

Title is the legal evidence of your right to own and possess the land.  Since there is always a chance that someone other than the seller has a prior legal right to the property you are buying, title insurance offers you protection, which gives you a peace of mind about your purchase.  There are a number of prior issues or "defects" that can go undisclosed even after a careful "title search" of public records.  Sometimes

According to JESSE J. HOLLAND of the Associated Press,  It is true that "we do grow everything bigger in Texas," even the cities.

New data from the Census Bureau shows that Frisco, Texas was the second fastest growing city in the nation beween 2012 and 2013.  San Marcos, Texas was number one and Cedar Park, Texas was number 4.   Perhaps Governor Perry's "Wide Open For Business" campaign, is really making an impact...  Or perhaps, folks are simply intrigued by all this great town has to offer.  

If you haven't visited yourself, we would love to host you and take you on a discovery tour to find out just what makes this little city so attractive.

Answers to Your Questions Regarding Appraisals

As a listing agent, one of my primary obligations to a seller is to do everything within my ability to assist them in getting the proper value for their home.  Unfortunately, there are times when appraisers may not know a particular market well.  While this is not the norm, it does happen.  We make it a habit to communicate with the appraiser and to provide them data with respect to the comparable sales we used in pricing the home.  We will also ask the seller for a list of all upgrades, etc to evidence the details regarding the home.  When possible, we will deliver this information to the appraiser in person to establish a good report with him or her.  Below are a few frequently asked questions regarding

As you know, there are a lot of decisions to make when you’re moving.  Once you have determined the right city, the right community, the right builder, the right home, and the right it’s time to secure the right financing.  When you decide to buy a home, it is very likely that the builder will have some form of partnership with a lender.  There are a number of reasons that builders have done this.

Their primary reason is to control the quality of the transaction and to ensure that you close when you are supposed to close.  I certainly cannot blame the builders, because many “lenders” are incompetent and they fail to meet crucial deadlines.  There has been a great demand for loan originators and many rookies have rushed to fill the void.  This level

HOW TO LEVEL THE “BUYER VS BUILDER” PLAYING FIELD

 

After years in the Real Estate business as an owner and broker, I have spent many hours looking for the best way to educate people before they enter a model (new) home.  I have seen far too many people be taken advantage of.  Please read the following and see what you can learn from “Tom and Cindy’s” experience.

Most buyers are operating on a very uneven playing field.  Think about it for a minute…the sales rep for the builder may sell 15-20 homes per month.  But, this may be your 1st, 2nd, or 3rd home.  That means you are vulnerable when compared to the builder’s rep.  Great sales reps are excellent at maximizing their employer’s (builder) profit centers, often to your disadvantage as a new
