More information is needed to answer your question. Most contracts have a numerous check points along the way to closing that offer each party the chance to get out without penalty, or with small penalty. You may want to do a full investigation into the facts and circumstances of the situations and decide how you want to move forward. ... more

The short answer is NO! In Texas, only one broker may represent a seller in the sale of a home at any given time.

Good evening Joy, I apologize that I have not gotten back to you sooner, I was visiting my mother (in a nursing home) out of State.

The first item, is has the will been probated, if not; then it needs to be probated.

The second item is interview agents who have listed homes in the area where you home is located (is it in Wills Point?, if so; I can send you information on real estate agents that may have listed and sold homes in Wills Point, the key here is to find someone that you feel comfortable with that has listed and/or sold homes in Wills Point, you will need this comfort feeling as time goes on as you and the agent may have many conversations pertaining to the market, what it is going to take to sell your home, etc. and you need some one you are comfortable with.

I do not work the Wills Point market and at this time, know very little about it, but if you have further questions, I will be pleased to answer them for you.

My name is Karman Wallace 972-342-0787 or

A lot of my home buyers usually like to move into their new home before the winter so that moving can be much easier regarding the cold weather, however, to answer your question generally I would have to agree with one of the previous comment that as long as you and your agent strategically map out the price, interior attentiveness and the other factors that contribute to a faster sale can all accommodate in a fast and easy experience for your house to sell in carrollton.

Kindest Regards,

That is hard to say for sure. I have shown all tile homes and had people that loved that and people that hated it. Some people prefer wood too. People with allergies want to minimize carpet so those buyers will see it as a plus. I would do what you like while you are living in the house and not worry too much about resale unless you see yourself selling in the near future.

Hi Kay,

I have found that price and showability are the 2-key components of getting homes sold in this tough real estate market. You need to price your home at or below market value, especially if your home needs updating. You can also offer a Buyer a closing cost credit (that would be shown on the HUD-1 Closing Statement) that will give the Buyer liquid funds to make updates to their tastes.

Another option that would make substantial impact on how your home shows (that does not cost a great deal of money) is replacing worn/dark colored carpets, re-painting rooms to today's modern colors (earth tones), replacing old/dated light fixtures, replace vanities/faucets & bath accessories, & older draperies/window treatments. Also replace flush doors with 6-panel or prairie style doors/hardware. Another important aspect is staging your home to look its best... This will give your Buyers a fantastic first impression of your home!

Best of luck...

Actually I don't think $255,000 is any better of a search price than $265,000 from an internet standpoint. Whenever possible I always advise my Sellers to price for internet real estate sites--where most people will search $225,000 to $250,000 or $250,000 to $275,000 -- by pricing at $250,000 you wind up at the top in one of the searches and at the very bottom in the second search.

When I am working with a Buyer on a new build I always include a clause that allows for a re-negotiation of price should the builder drop their base price during the time the house is being built or if there is a major shift in the market. Short of having something of that type in your contract, I doubt the builder will be willing to give a price concession.

First, I agree 100% with Don.

Second, an offer that's 15% below the list price for a listing that's priced 15% (or more) above its current market value IS a fair offer.

Third, it's hypocritical for sellers (and their agents) to complain about aggressively low priced offers now--especially when many marketed aggressively overpriced listings a few years ago. Barracudas or not, the sellers (and their agents) collected their checks and cashed them then, and now the pendulum has swung in the other direction. ... more

No Keith, I offer a detailed c.m.a.; solds(the facts), expireds(unsuccessful), and the actives(the competition). A complete marketing plan along with a solid asking price are the beginning of a successful transaction. But then the question wasn't about how I perform. ... more

Making a connection that will your current listing sold. Or making a connection that will lead to a future buyer or seller transaction.

And if an agent is just starting out, a successful open house may also be just gaining experience and having some successful dialogues. ... more

Michael Russell answered:
My first advice is to have a local Realtor(I'm one) prepare a cma(comps) for you regarding both your house in its present condition and if you did update. If it looks plausible to update then you would proceed to get quotes from reputable contractors regarding pricing. Then you can see if the whole idea of updating is worth it. ... more

Hopefully you've already successfully sold this property. If not I would like to see the property as I have a couple of investors who are actively looking to rehab a property.

Hi Lee Anne,

Sorry to jump in here, but I want to remind many who answered your question that commercial posts, including unwarranted solicitations, are prohibited on Trulia Voices. Had Lee Anne asked for help finding an agent, recommending your services would be acceptable, however she only asked how to get a selling price for her property.

We understand that you are here to promote your business, but please be sure that you've answered the question at hand before you invite someone to contact you or suggest you do business together.

Thank you,

Emily Gibson
