Hi Julie,

The typical commission a real estate agent will charge you to sell your home can be anywhere between 4% - 6% of the final selling price. However, the commission is negotiable between you and your real estate agent before you sign a listing agreement.

This article will tell you everything you need to know about real estate commission:

The total utilities run about 300 dollars a month for a family of four in a 2,500-3000 sqft home in that area if your home is well insulated and you have an average use per person living in your home. Good luck! ... more

No one has the permission to list your home as for sale without your permission. I recommend reporting this to Trulia.

The choice of location would have a lot to do with what's important to you... view, community amenities & restrictions etc.

You can often get a lower price per square foot if you're willing to purchase an existing home over building new. Depending on your lot and the topography (which can often be quite challenging in the Canyon Lake area) it can often be quite expensive to build. If you don't mind a home that needs some updating or minor repairs you can often get a really nice home for a very good price.

As far as I know HEB has no plans at present to come to Canyon Lake, however Brookshire Brothers ( is planning a store near 306 & 3424 on the north side of the lake with a projected opening in early 2014.

You can go to our website ( and set up an automatic search to look for properties or if you would like more information about local builders please feel free to contact us, we'd love to help you find just the right property for you!

Resales in the Ranch del Lago development have been mostly new construction homes built by Hamon Homes. The preferable area would be in the gated Legends at Rancho Del Lago. If you are interested in building, we have some knock-out lots listed in that gated area. Pricing is competitive, and I find this area to be one of the most beautiful developments in the Hill Country.

This will always depend on the neighborhood or area that it is in and other mitigating factors. Canyon Lake has many "pockets" of homes and some will be on the market for a very long time while others might sell very quickly within the same price point. So many factors can affect days on market; location, neighborhood appearance, proximity and school feeder patterns, and something people tend to overlook-appearance of home (aka curb appeal). If you have a great area where houses are moving briskly and then your home is the 'ugly duckling" on the street it could sit a very long time, way more than AVG time on market for the neighborhood.

That is a question in which the answer can be extrapolated mathematically but this equation itself will be controlled and reset by houses sitting or selling whether slowly or quickly. As always REALTORS® do not sell houses, the market sells houses... If I can help you ganderson6969 just shoot me an email.

The lake or most any body of water is better, because it will cause the value of your home/property to be more than that of a property/home of like kind that is not near a body of water. ... more

Thanks everyone. great advice. I think I will just hold it as a rental, So many people are leaving New braufels due to high rents. My renter about fell over when I said I might sell. It stays rented and I dont have a loan on it. Might as well just keep it for now as it would not sell for enough but rents in a day. p.s. Canyon Springs Resort does not allow mobile homes as someone said. and yes. the hoa
is 18-dollars A YEAR. The hoa takes care of pool and cabana. That is an HOA I love.
