In the business of real estate, the BIG D doesn't refer to Dallas… it refers to DISCLOSURE. Sellers have plenty to worry about when they list a home.  Selecting the right Listing Broker goes a long way toward protecting a Seller's interests before, during, and after a sale. A savvy, experienced Listing Agent will strategically work to reduce factors which can create conflict between parties. From property condition to title issues,  full disclosure is always the best policy. WHAT ABOUT THE BUYER? Consumers are slower to realize that there are disclosure obligations on the Buyer's side as well. Many states prompt a Buyer to minimally disclose the details & terms of their planned financing program, any relationships with their agents or third party vendors, and even their own status in th...

Everyone knows that all interested party contributions need to be disclosed on the Closing Disclosure / Final Settlement Statement, right? CFPB and TRID / RESPA changes that took effect in October 2015 have both emphasized disclosure rules and placed  more responsibility on the shoulders of lenders to ensure compliance. This includes preparing the final settlement statement (Closing Disclosure / CD) and adhering to the 3-day waiting period that must completed before consummation (closing) can occur. Buyers depend on their Loan Officers to be professional, and to make sure that the lending piece doesn't become the weak link in the chain of events leading to closing. Meeting contracted closing dates requires awareness, attention to detail, and strong support systems to keep processing mov...

   SOLD - 9809 Castlewood DRPlano, TX  This beautiful Townhouse sold on 9/9/2016. The Seller was pleased that the HOA painted the siding and garage doors just in time before closing a very nice shade of grey, much different that the photograph, including taking care of any wood trimming in need of repair or replacement, and they also painted the front and back door for all of the Townhouses. Last year all homeowners got a new roof, gutters, and new fences. They maintain all landscaping too, foundations, and Community Pool. Location and exterior maintenance by the HOA was a huge selling factor. All the buyers have to do is decide how they want to decorate the inside and make any additional home improvements to customize their new home to their own taste and style.  Having the right HOA t...

Ross Gerber, CEO of Gerber Kawasaki Wealth and Investment Management, recently contributed to Forbes' "Great Speculations" blog, posting "Five Things Real Estate Agents Won't Tell You."  If you follow the above link to the blog post, take note that it references an archived snapshot of the unedited article, captured on September 3, 2016.  The current (live) article on Forbes' website omits content Gerber initially included, which resulted in immediate backlash and correction requests from informed readers. WHAT DID HE SAY?The overall tone of Gerber's content generally paints Realtors® in a negative light. The presiding insinuation is that real estate agents are self-serving…  It is easy to intuit Gerber's bias is chiefly against real estate as an investment vehicle.  However, instead of...

We recently attended a training hosted by one of the largest associations in the DFW Metroplex.  While the content was good overall, we walked away with concerns about several glaring points of misinformation shared during the event.One hot topic concerned the subject of residential property surveys.To clear things up, we polled our title, surveying, and lender partners to confirm understanding of how the cow eats the cabbage in Texas.Statement: "A T-47 (survey affidavit) is not a requirement for existing survey provided by a Seller."Survey Says: A T-47 is not only a standard requirement in order for Title to issue coverage against an existing survey, one is commonly signed in conjunction with closing when a NEW survey has been ordered for a transaction. A T-47 and a survey are a paired...
