In Texas when you close on a home it is usually done at the title company. In attendance you usually see the buyer, the buyers Realtor, the escrow officer, the seller and the seller's agent. In most situations you have the buyers and seller closing at separate times as the sellers paperwork is us...
One of the most difficult situations for a home seller to be in is to try and sell their home while it is occupied by a tenant. Tenants don't have an incentive to see the home sell. And quite frankly, most of them couldn't care less if it does. Sadly, this entire attitude problem can be dealt wit...
Here are 50 of the many, many things you should NEVER do while viewing a sellers house. It's important to know that a home seller is granting you "permission" to view their home. You should treat their home with respect.1. Get on the roof. There's nothing up there for you to see, leave this for t...

I can honestly tell you that it's never been about the points, number of features or even the number of clicks that satisfied me the most.  I've m...
Earlier this week I requested a Sellers Disclosure from a Listing Agent. My buyers were interested and before submitting an offer they wanted to review what the seller had to say about their house. Normally the sellers disclosure is online for agents to review, download and ultimately provide to ...
"I need to sleep on it." Can be translated in many, many ways. When a buyer says they need to sleep on it I tend to lose confidence that I can help them buy the home they're interested in, esepcially if it is in a sellers market. Odds are, the home that they are in love with won't be around for "...
Open houses are so all over the place. They can be so boring, fun, different, eventful, meaningful and even dramatic. I've attended 2 hour open houses and 8 hour open houses. The most elaborate open house I've ever attended included professional models who rotated expensive clothes/handbags and e...
