If that's what you'd like to do then you can certainly do that. You will have to disclose what the inspector finds, though, so in other words if there are things that you are not willing to repair you'll still have to disclose it.

Whatever that you both have agreed upon on the listing agreement is the one that will stand in court. You don't have to agree to anything that changes the listing agreement after the agreement is executed. Your agent; however, may cut his/her services to you especially if you pay him/her very little. If that's the case then you got what you paid for. ... more

Hello Sheila,
Smoke can wreak havoc on your listing. Your customer might love the home but hate the smell. The problem with smoked out houses are that they don't sell well. Since your goal is to help sell the house as soon as possible, contact your local BioSweep franchise owner today so they can help. As a franchise owner in Austin, Texas, I have conversations with local agents about smoke odors all the time. They are always surprised we are cheaper than carpet replacement and wall painting combined. We are in and out within 12 hours for the average 2000 sq. Ft. home and our technology works. No gimmicks, no sprays, no ozone machines, no need to change carpet and no need to paint walls. Most importantly, it is guaranteed 100%. If you are in the Austin area suffering from a smoke smell issue, give us a call at 512.373.8118 or visit us at the site listed below. ... more

As long as you disclose that it has fire damage, you shouldn't run into too many problems. You may have to take a cut on how much you sell the house for though, because of the damage. You might actually be able to save some money by just getting the damage repaired before selling it. I think you should look into all of the options you have.

11 single family homes have sold in the past 6 months and none of them was on the market for over 100 days, with the average being 95 days. All of these homes were in superb condition and were priced right. Single story is attractive for many people, but just as many need the larger square footage that the two story models offer. I would be happy to swing by and work up an opinion for you regarding price and condition, both of which are crucial to today's market. Bruce is dead on with his comment about builder competition over there - price is king and you have to beat them just about every time. Why buy pre-owned if you can get new at just as good, or an even better, price. Best regards, Kim ... more

Hi Catherine,

You will have mostly Title insurance that runs about $1800 depends on the home value. Then you have all the title company fees and laywers fee. And if you agree to pay for the survey (if you don't have one) then that another 400 roughly.

Or if you are in a condo then you will have the fee for condo resale certificate and the owner transfer fees. that can go from 300-700 dollars.

I can email you a closing worksheet that listed all the details. You can email me at

I would love to talk with you about selling your home. I know you are trying to sell by yourself. I do not blame you for trying to save money. It is a complex thing to do and can be very stressful. I would suggest you talking to a Realtor to get all the facts. A good local Realtor will be able to get you the exposure your home needs to sell, and give you the right information throughout the selling process to protect you and get you the most money in the shortest amount of time.
My information is on the material I have been sending you. If you would like to discuss your best options give me a call.

Yes, most underwriters are seeking evidence of the repairs to justify the new asking price. Keep all of the receipts and invoices you receive from contractors and stores. This will benefit the appraiser as well in reaching the new value. ... more

The market is better than the nation's. Lots of opportunities in Irving, especially Las Colinas to buy right now. Interest rates are at its all-time low, home prices are stable or even at all-time low in the last 2 years. If you are looking for a great deal in great neighborhoods, that will only appreciate once the economy gets stable (i.e. the prices are lower just because of the times), you should try the TPC Enclave, University Park, Hackberry. Don't buy new because whatever deal you're getting from a new home community is the same as your neighbors, which means you aren't saving much. If you really want bargains and great buys, buy in slightly older communities that are well-kept, desirable, near golf or lake, away from apartments and have well-built homes. Examples in Irving again is TPC Enclave (right now homes range from $900k to $1.9 mil, but in a normal economy, it would be $1.4 mil to $2.5 mil.) If you're an investor or even a homeowner who wants a great investment and you can afford it, buy here. ... more
