Why You Should Hire An Agent When Buying A New Home

In this free e-book you’ll discover if you need to use a real estate agent when buying new construction. Or should you just deal directly with the builder and their sales representative? These are common questions people who are considering buying new construction ask. A lot of people find themselves making mistakes they don’t even know they’re making. These mistakes often begin the minute they see a sign or an ad for new construction, and they take a ride to just see the place. People who aren’t real estate agents who recommend using one when you buy new construction. (These are usually people who’ve been through it and regret not using an agent independent of the builder.)

Relocation Guide: Things That Sellers Don’t Expect

This free e-book covers how stressful it can be to sell your house when you’re just moving across town, but when you’re planning to relocate out of the area, it can be even more so. There are a lot of things to consider beyond what most homeowners have on their mind or have to deal with when they sell a house. This can lead to some costly mistakes or at least make for a frustrating experience. Frustration is one thing (although it’s ideal if you can avoid that too), but the last thing you want to do is lose money on the sale of your home due to things you just didn’t even think would cause any issue.

So Your House Didn’t Sell…Now What

We’re sure you’ve got plenty of your own opinions about why your house didn’t sell. But one reason you probably wouldn’t have considered is that your house might be infested with real estate agents. You probably had no clue. People apparently live with this problem all the time and never realize it until they’ve listed their house for sale and it doesn’t sell. Then, the minute your listing “expires,” real estate agents come crawling out of the woodwork and pester you to list with them. And they make so much noise!! They’re all buzzing in your ear about being able to sell your house quickly and for top dollar.  If you’re like most homeowners who’ve gone through this, you’re probably aggravated that you never heard from, or saw, so many agents while your house was actually on the market. And now it’s like they’re a bunch of swarming pests. We don’t want to be pests. We’d sincerely like to help you if you want and need our help. But rather than pile on and call you or knock on your door, we just wanted to give you this helpful free e-book. Go ahead, read it. It’ll give you some insight and help as well as a sense of who we are and how we can help…all without pestering you. (And hopefully, give you a laugh or two in the process!)

Relocation Guide: Things Buyers Don’t Expect

So, it looks like we might be neighbors pretty soon! There’s nothing we like better than introducing someone to the central Texas area! It can be tough finding the perfect combination of town, neighborhood, and house that you like whenever you move. But it can be even tougher when you aren’t all that familiar with the area. We pride ourselves on helping people make the best decision possible in the short time they have to get the lay of the land when they relocate here. With that said, this free e-book isn’t going to be fluffy “welcome to the area” information — like what the best ice cream places, restaurants, and things to do are. (But we’ll be glad to give you our insights and opinions on those things if you want!)

Free E-books on preparing for a sale

Preparing Your Home For Sale

For most people, listing their house for sale isn’t a spur of the moment thing. People often think about selling their house for years before ever actually selling it. Yet, given how much time and thought people tend to give it, many people don’t do enough to prepare their house for sale (or prepare themselves for what’s to come). They just get to a point where they decide it’s time to sell and they pop a sign in the yard. This often leads to people not selling their house for as much, as quickly, or as smoothly as it could have. Or at all. On the other hand, there are people who do too much and spend way more time and money than they should. They may very well do things that help their house sell as quickly as possible and for as much as possible, but they don’t net as much as they could have because they put more money into it than they can recoup from the sale. It’s a fine line. You don’t want to do too little or too much…This free e-book will be a valuable asset.

The Ultimate Guide To Selling Your Home On Your Own

It probably seems a little weird that we want to help you sell your home on your own, being that we’re a real estate agents. You’re probably thinking there’s gotta be a catch…The truth is, we get it. We totally understand wanting to try and sell your home on your own and save some money. We’re just like you, meaning that we do some things on our own, and don’t hire a professional (when we can) in order to save some money. Sometimes we do it as good or better than someone we could’ve hired. Sometimes we struggle and get it done OK enough. And sometimes, we get into the middle of it and end up hiring someone anyway as you may discover in this free e-book.

Renting Or Buying A Guide To Determine What’s Best For You

So, does owning a home make more sense than renting? Obviously, coming from real estate agents, you’d probably expect our answer to be a resounding “Yes!” That’s a logical assumption since most real estate agents would answer yes to that question. But to us, owning doesn’t make as much sense as renting…in all cases. Not everyone is cut out for owning. We didn’t create this free e-book to convince you that buying is better than renting or vice versa. We created it to help you figure out which makes more sense for you.

We hope you enjoy the booklet and find it thoughtful and useful. If you have any thoughts, comments, or questions, please feel free to send one of us an email, a text, or even (gasp!) give us a call!


Beware The Pitfalls Of Attending Open Houses

OK, so your goal—if you’re like most buyers—is to find the best house and get it for the best possible price. But what’s crazy is that even though that’s the goal of most people, it’s almost never achieved. Sadly, many people don’t find the best house for their wants and needs. And if they do, they often don’t get it for the best possible price. Why? Because so many people begin their search for a new home by going to open

houses! It seems like a harmless thing to do, and it’s a really common way for people to begin their search…but it’s not the best way to approach buying a home…

Thinking Of Downsizing? What To Consider Before You Do

Downsizing… For some, it’s a welcome and exciting thing to look forward to. For others, it’s something you’d rather not even think about, let alone actually do. Not to mention, you and your spouse may not even be on the same page with it. Downsizing can be an emotional decision and process. It helps to take an objective look at it before you make any decisions. This booklet isn’t intended to encourage or discourage you from downsizing; it’s to help you give it appropriate thought and planning. There’s no “right” or “perfect” time for everyone to downsize. Everyone’s life, lifestyle, and financial picture are different. But one of the most common mistakes people make is to not downsize soon enough. For some, the decision to downsize — and the process of doing so — can take some time. So, while you may not be ready to downsize right now, starting to think it through and making a plan is one of the smartest things you can do.

Facing Foreclosure?

Facing foreclosure is such a private matter. Most people don’t want anyone to know what they’re going through. This makes an already difficult situation even more difficult. It can feel like you’re the only person you know who’s gone through it…or like you’ve done something bad or wrong. It can feel like every time you open the mail, answer the phone, or hear a knock at the door, someone’s there either making huge promises about how they can solve your problems or they’ve come looking for payment. It’s hard to know where to turn, who or what to trust, or where to even begin. We know what that feels like. we’ve had clients who have gone through it too.

How To Handle The Real Estate Of A Deceased Loved One

First and foremost, our condolences on the loss. It’s never easy to lose someone. There are so many things you’re probably finding yourself having to deal with, beyond just the sadness of your loss. It’s hard to ever be entirely ready or prepared for everything that has to be thought about and addressed. One of the more obvious things people expect to have to handle is the “estate” of someone who has passed. However, it’s often more involved and complex than many people expect. “Estate” is a broad term that involves many different things. And one of the largest elements of one’s estate is typically the real estate they owned. We’ve created this booklet to touch upon a few of the more common, but unexpected, issues people find themselves dealing with when handling the real estate portion of the estate. This is not a comprehensive “how-to” but rather a look at some issues most people (and even most real estate agents) do not expect or address — until they’re in the middle of dealing with them.
