This blog is to help educate Buyers, Sellers and even other Realtors across the country. Each market is different and the way Real Estate is done is different. Austin TX Real Estate is completely different than Dallas, California, and Florida and everywhere else in between. Some times there will be other things besides real estate as I like to rant and rave as much as the next!! Come back often!

As many of you know, I'm in the process of moving to Austin, TX. When?  WHo knows, but that's a story for a different day as the house continues to be built. I'm been preparing this move for months, which means, I've organized my databases and passed off all my past and future buyers and sellers ...

I blogged earlier about buyers looking at a house many times before submitting an offer, and I wanted to go into further detail about the listing situation of that same house. Some "friends" of mine put their house on the market about 8-9 months ago.  We talked about the house, the work needed, t...

When buyers look at a house more than 2 times, do you think they're trying to "talk themselves into the house"?  For the most part, a buyer looks at a house, decides to submit an offer, negotiates, and during our Texas "option period", they go back to the house and look at it again during their i...

Here are some of the latest pictures taken of our house.  As you can see, the scaffolding has been put back up in the front to get ready to tear down the elevation and redo it. I can't wait for it to look correct! We also have the new delivery of the rest of the brick so they can finish the back ...

Yikes, I couldn't believe all the twists.  I knew we couldn't trust that little twurp who's the First Man's (is that politically correct?) aid.  I thought he was a little fishy.  But to actually kill him, like that's not going to be obvious.  The son winds up dead and then the father not too long...

And the saga continues...  it's pretty obvious we're not closing in January, which was our original close date.  We're also not going to close early February which was our second date.  We're now looking at end of March, possibly April. My husband was in Austin last week looking at the house.  He...

Last week, I sat in the Professional Standards & Grievance Committee training class as everyone on the committee in their respective states must now retake the class every year instead of every two years.  Seven hours of more roll playing... I guess they make us take it so often because even thou...

In my market, we have a showing service who sets up all our appointments, Centralized Showing Service.  It's great.  1 call can set 10 appointments for the day, or you can even login to their website and schedule it from there. Very easy. Within this system, they also send out an automatic email ...

I can't believe no one noticed my change... I thought it was really obvious, but apparently not... I changed my profile picture!  Doesn't it look completely different than the old one?? LOL   NEW Donna 2009                                                OLD Donna 2006 I really liked my picture an...

Texas is not taking bogus appraisals lightly.  And maybe *bogus* is a strong word.  They're not taking *fluffed* appraisals lightly. I received an email from TALCB, the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board.  I don't know all the facts as to how they got involved, but they are definit...
