Inventory levels continue to trail buyer interest in many parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including the Fort Worth real estate market. Sellers have their pick-of-the-litter when it comes to choosing a buyer, which can make the practice of asking a seller to pay for repairs a precarious game. Many buyers look at homes that are considered fixers, but there's a fine-line to straddle when it comes to approaching sellers about repairs prior to closing escrow. Escrow is a busy time, and ff course, smaller cosmetic issues should be ignored at this point. But if after having a home inspection there are any glaring structural issues, like a roof that needs repairs or a plumbing system that needs attention, it's critical to speak-up now. If you don't, you will inherit the problem and the rel...

The Sad House     I’m taking a couple out shopping for a true fixer-upper. They want a decent structure, and as experienced DIYers, are not afraid of a few holes in walls, missing appliances, or foul smelling carpet. One home we recently viewed had boarded up windows, nasty carpet, and several holes in the sheet rock. Most of the plumbing was missing. My client started calling it the ‘Sad’ house—a play on the street name Sand. This one has a solid, sturdy structure, decent exterior and roof, and a good floorplan. Great closet spaces. No kitchen to speak of at all. What was left of the bathrooms was unusable. Oh my, the work necessary to bring this place back to life is a bit daunting...and that’s provided the current owners—a bank—will acknowledge it’s over priced. Significantly.   Stil...

While the inside of the card was terrific, the outside simply made my day. This deal was stressful for many reasons and it's successful closing was sweet indeed.

 A Home Won't Sell If It's Priced Too High This is a fact, homes will sell for a what buyer is willing to pay. What a seller needs to have or what the listing broker's opinion of the home's worth really has nothing to do with home value. Only the market place will determine if a home will sell or a home won't sell. The listing broker and sellers are both at fault for a home not selling. Sellers will generally select a listing broker based on the price the agent tells them they think the home will sell for. Big mistake.  There are still a high percentage of Realtors who will go on a listing appointment and ask the seller. "Ok what to do want to ask for the property?" Especially if the seller has asked a friend or relative to sell the home. Which, by the way is a bad idea. Because that ag...

           Something fun to do is visit the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens located at 3220 Botanical Gardens Boulevard in Fort Worth, TX.

                PATRICIA'S PHOTO JOURNAL – JUNE 12, 2013       There are living things in nature that tell a story. Trees and plants can live to be one hundred years old or more. They breathe, release oxygen; around a body of water incoming light waves set the electrons of the water molecules in motion. The Japanese Gardens at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens is a beautiful place for humans to replenish and fuel up on energy. In this first photograph I observed how the sun is captured by leaves as the light flickered through the branches of the trees.                 LIGHT DANCES           At the Botanical Gardens in Fort Worth, TX, the intense heat and afternoon sun produced a lovely, moving water color art. The Koi fish were hungry for food as the crimson leaves of the Japanese Maples...

The Neil P. Building is one of my favorite downtown condos. Three reasons are 1) The historic nature of the building and it's location at the western gateway to downtown. 2) For those who like the urban lifestyle in a larger scale these roomy residences feel more like a house than a condo on the inside and 3) many of them have spacious patios overlooking an inner courtyard. Get information about the Neil P. Building by following these links: Look at the current available listings in the Neil P. Compare the Neil P. to other downtown condos with my convenient spreadsheet Review the HOA documents compare the Neil P. floor plans The most complete source for downtown Fort Worth condominium info is at my website:

I'm in awe of some of my clients. Truly. It hit me the other day, they have such courage and are so brave. To ask for help staging their home for sale and invite a perfect stranger into their home when they have no idea what they will hear. I imagine their internal dialogue must go something like this….   "I know I need help getting my home ready to sell. I'm not sure what to do or how to do it. My realtor told me I didn't need to stage but I decided I wanted my home to look right. To be the best it could."   " I need to take some time searching online for a home stager in Dallas Fort Worth. I read the testimonials, look at the photo gallery and then pick up the phone and call."   "I'm going to invite a perfect stranger into my home and wait for the comments. I don't know what I'm going...
