20 razones para contratar un agente de bienes raíces Texas REALTOR®

Las casas se compran por comparación. Yo tengo un gran inventario a mi disposición por medio del registro múltiple de propiedades en venta en el Internet (MLS por sus siglas en inglés); mientras que usted tiene un inventario de uno. Yo estoy familiarizado con las casas que compiten en el mercado, por lo tanto puedo posicionar la suya adecuadamente. Es difícil negociar por los intereses propios, yo tengo experiencia en redactar contratos y puedo negociar agresivamente por usted. Los compradores no siempre divulgan su situación financiera. Yo insisto en precalificarlos antes de traerle una oferta a usted. Mi relación con prestamistas hipotecarios y mi experiencia con préstamos para la vivienda, ayudan a que los compradores reciban el financiamiento que necesitan....

20 reasons to hire Lone Star Luxury

Homes are bought by comparison. I have a large inventory at my disposal through MLS while you have an inventory of one. I have global marketing outlets that I pay for monthly which puts your property in front of millions. I am very familiar with competitive houses and the market so I can help you position the price of your home best. It is hard negotiating for yourself. I have lots of experience in writing contracts and can negotiate aggressively on your behalf. Buyers are not always forthright about their financial situation. I insist on pre-qualifying their financials and motivation before I even bring you an offer. Unqualified buyers can tie up your home. I make sure that doesn’t happen. My lender contacts and mortgage experience help buyers get the...

Carpets in need of a tune-up?

Try these ideas Quick fixes for new-looking carpets First, to really get it clean, sweep the carpet with a broom, which will make the nap stand up and loosen embedded dirt. Next, vacuum the carpet.

Landscaping: Little touches make the difference

The right landscape design can make all the difference to a prospective buyer, especially when it’s beautifully and carefully executed. In fact, REALTORS® and landscape professionals estimate that a well-landscaped yard can add 5% to 15% to the selling value of a house. Houses that look good from the road carry higher price tags—a fact that turns landscape investments into money in the bank when selling a house. Here are a few ideas on how to improve your landscape: Trees One of the best investments you can make is a glorious stand of healthy trees as part of a well-landscaped yard. REALTORS® across Texas and the rest of the country know that healthy trees can increase the property value of a home, as well as provide years of aesthetic benefits to owners....

Selling your home? Less is definitely more

Here are a few tips to make your home more attractive to a potential buyer: Reduce clutter Clean out closets, pick up clutter, and pare down what’s inside. That goes for those treasured family photos and mementos, too. The reason? Besides adding a spacious feel to the home, pared-down surroundings can help potential buyers better envision themselves and their family photos in the house. Pack away items and special collections usually displayed in cabinets and hutches, and move a few pieces of furniture out of the house. This will help buyers to better see where their furniture might go in the house. Don’t forget to keep the house clean every minute it’s on the market. This takes great effort, but the buyer may need to see it in the next five minutes, and you’ll...

Prepare su casa para la venta

Unos cuantos cambios pueden reducir el tiempo de venta y aumentar el precio. Debe limpiar todo y deshacerse de aquello que tenga aspecto desordenado. Pero aparte de eso, ¿Cómo puede aumentar el atractivo por su casa? Unos cuantos consejos: Recorra su hogar y vea qué cosas con algunos cambios, pueden aumentar el valor de su casa. Por ejemplo, si el cuarto de los niños esta pintado de colores fuertes, repíntelo con colores neutrales o más suaves. Esto puede llamar más la atención del comprador que algo menos aparente, como cambiar la lavadora de platos. Usted puede dirigir la vista del comprador potencial lejos de algo negativo, o hacia algo positivo. Utilice pinturas o bien los elementos propios de la habitación, como la chimenea, para capturar su atención. Quite...
