    Posted Under: General Area in Dallas County, Home Buying in Dallas County, Home Selling in Dallas County  |  July 3, 2011 8:04 PM  |  7,505 views  |  No comments
    Each month we post the Top Ten Cool and Unique Buys   we've found for sale in the DFW Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. There are normally a variety of styles, ages, sizes, and prices. Some have unique locations, some are historic rennovations, some are contemporary, some are just downright cool homes. Sometimes they're great investment properties. Sometimes they're great family homes. Sometimes they have acerage. They often move very fast due to being a top find, so if you are interested in one of these properties, please call us immediately. The phones are often busy, so if we don't answer, leave us a voicemail and we'll call you back. 

    Check back each month for our latest finds. If what you need isn't listed here, send me an email at rb@teamlynn.com or call me at 214-675-6992 and we will set up a search specifically to meet your needs. That way you can beat other buyers to the best properties. You might notice at times there are more than TEN best buys. That's just one way we add value for our clients. We always try to meet, but beat your expectations.  Most realtors hate unique homes, I thrive on them, so if you are looking for a unique home, call me first and we'll do our best to find you the right home for your needs.

    If you have a unique home and need to sell and your favorite realtor is walking your home saying "Oh my", give them the Donald Trump "You're fired" and hire me.  You want to hear "WOW", "Cool", and "Awesome" from the realtor who will sell your home.  Plus you home can be featured here and exposed to buyers who don't want a tract home.

  • The Value of Remodeling

    Posted Under: Remodel & Renovate in Texas  |  March 21, 2010 10:39 PM  |  1,433 views  |  No comments

    One of the toughest questions I hear from both buyers and sellers is "What should I remodel and how much should I spend?"
    Well here are some of the answers. Check out this great article from the National Association of Realtors and Remodeling Magazine 2009-10 Cost vs. Value Report: REALTOR® Magazine . This is always one of the best and most useful articles of the year. Check it out. Find out where you can get the most bank for your remodeling buck. If you are buying a Fixer, this is a great place to start your plans. If you are just thinking about upgrades to your existing home to enhance the sales price or speed of the sale, another great place to start.

    As always if you are a buyer looking a FREE home search in Coppell, TX just click the link. We have a wide variety of Coppell Homes for Sale in all price ranges. If you are a seller in the DFW metroplex and would like to see home prices in your neighborhood, click on our DFWSnapshot link.

    Remember to take before and after pictures. Display the pictures in your home while it is on the market. Everyone likes to see a great project. Keep the receipts. It's a nice way to justify what you paid for the project. If you're not a DIY type, hire a great contractor. Be sure to get contracts in writing and be as specific as you can in the contract. Add examples and samples to the contract. Name specific brands and colors of paint. If you are changing appliances, specify the brand and model number. Make payments to the contractor at specific stages and never all up front. There has to be a level of trust. I always like using contractors that go the extra mile and do a little more than you asked or contracted. The ones that paint the trim, and don't ask for additional funds for painting the trim 1/2 way through the job. Check out their references. Go see examples of their work. Great artisians are proud to show it off.

    Have fun.
