Finding the right general contractor is critical for the proper completion of a 203k rehab project. One should talk to trustworthy people that may have worked with contractors in the recent past. Realtors, property investors, architects, builders and agents are a good pool of people to consult when finding the right 203k contractor.

The average sold price for a 5 bedroom home is about $122.49/sq foot. However, having said that, this will never be an accurate measurement on the your market value of your home. Zip code 75033 includes areas such as Grayhawk with homes in the range from around $300's - $400's and Shaddock Creek with homes from about $900k and up. We are not comparing apples to apples if you are just looking at zip codes. Even homes in the same subdivision have to be compared individually in terms of the upgrades, location, age, square footage, # of bedrooms etc.

I'm a realtor specializing in the area and I'd be happy to assist you in selling your home. I usually sit with my client and show the real data and then discuss about my client's goal. Then we work toward achieving that goal. You can reach me at 469-371-2899.

Hopefully you have sold your home by now. Many factors could influence the sale of your home.
Feel free to contact me directly for a detailed assessment if you want statistics for a particular neighborhood. Even if highly updated, sometimes neutrality is best (since you want to appeal to a large, overall crowd).

I would suggest that you ask your realtor. Or if you have comps that your realtor gave you, chances are that document has the average days on the market info as well.

The best way to find this is to find "comparable properties" just outside of your neighborhood. Afterall, a buyer isn't going to look "just" in your neighborhood. In a perfect world, they would all be within a one-mile radius but that doesn't always happen. We need to look at similar properties and the "average price per sf" (not just the sf alone) then make adjustments as needed. If it's still questionable, or you have installed dramatic updates while living there, I "always" suggest getting an appraisal. This way, you know up-front what to prepare for (and not run in to problems later)..and you also don't shoot yourself in the foot and price too low! ;-)

Feel free to contact me if I can supply this information for you or simply to answer any questions that you may have.

This would greatly depend upon the neighborhood you live in. In the higher price-ranges (such as Stonebriar or Starwood), a lot of homeowners have their kiddos in private schools, so the school would not be a huge (though still regarded) factor. Homes in most neighborhoods are still staying on the market days (some hours) in certain areas. A great way to see how well schools are selling in the Lewisville area vs Frisco area is to run a CMA with the two school districts and look at the "DOM" (date on the market) number of each :)

The Cowboys are building a headquarters and practice facility in Frisco. When they built in Valley Ranch their facility did not really appreciate the residential values.

It's been a while since you posted your question so I thought I'd check in to see what you had decided. If you are still interested in finding out what the Market Value of your property is we would be happy to provide that for you.

Please feel free to check us out at any of the links below and let us know what we can do to help you get out from under your monthly HOA dues.

The advice is to contact a tax professional as it is a tax question and not a real estate question.

We are coming into the best time of year to get on the market. Now that we are through the holidays, you should work on decluttering, cleaning, and touching up paints in your home. In this market, the homes that are flying off the MLS as soon as they hit are well-kept, clean homes.

I live across from you in Eldorado Fairways and would be happy to stop by for a no obligation consultation about staging your home for the fastest sell. Creating a great visual for buyers can earn you up to 20%more for your home that your competition. The speed will greatly depend how ready your home is when it hits the market. Many small items are cheap or free but help stage your home to entice most buyers.

I just pulled recent updates for Grayhawk. The time on market before a home goes under contract is 15 days, going pending is 28 days, and for sold homes is about 25 days average.

Email, call, or text me and I would be happy to answer any questions you have about getting your home on the market.

Happy Hump Day!

My best advice is to contact Lewisville ISD and Frisco ISD; both will have the latest and greatest info and they may be able to let you know of any future zoning changes, if any.

Is it an attached garage? heated and cooled and a true part of the home living space then YES.
But reconsider where the new buyers will park their car, in the original drive, then you should be
