Be careful when dealing with discount Realtors or Brokers, yes anything in life is negotiable but typically in life you get what you pay for, yes you can also try listing on different websites for FREE or low cost yourself but there are many reasons you might be better off with a Realtor on your side. In some cases you can ask a realtor for a discount if you are selling you home with them and buying another home with them. A GOOD Realtor can attract more buyers which usually drives up the price so although you are paying a commission if you sell it for more with a Realtor you could pay little or no commission as it might be on top of what you could have sold it for. In my experience when buyers make offers on homes that do not have Realtors they always seem to want you to discount it to them the amount of what you would have paid in commission and in many cases I have seen this happen so you basically do all the work and the buyers benefits not you. I AM NOT A Realtor however I work with many very good agents so I know the true value of a GOOD Realtor. NOT everyone needs a Realtor but if you do not have experience in selling homes you are probably better off getting one. Good luck and hope this helps. ... more

You're closer than you think!
Many people have found themselves in this situation. Luckily, there are programs available. If you need a Realtor who can put you in contact with the right individuals and not desert you during the process, contact me. It may take some time, but we will get there. (It all depends upon "what" is on your credit, as well as your debt-to-income rations, etc. I realize you can't get there until you know what to do to.

I would be honored to earn your business, or anyone else in the same situation.

It is never a good idea to break a lease. Did you not know the area your were moving into BEFORE you moved to it? You should do your due diligence before choosing a place by searching on the internet about crime and anything else you want to know. There is no such thing as a perfectly safe place. Also your budget will determine mostly where you live. ... more

Amy Arey answered:
The average DOM truly depends upon your competitive properties or "comps". They are different in every area, with every price-range. In some (and even most areas in Collin County) homes are staying on the market a matter of DAYS before they are selling (sometimes hours). If you're looking for homes, make sure you're set up on an auto-search (otherwise, you'll likely miss out on a few great homes!). Have your Realtor run comps in your neighborhood if thinking of selling to show you how long they are staying on the market in your neighborhood (or in another if you are thinking of buying a home in a particular neighborhood).

Feel free to contact me should you have additional questions or if I can be of service.

Prc answered:
An asset that you purchased prior to marriage is yours, however, once your spouse starts making payments on it, it becomes co-mingled assets. Your only claim is the money you originally put in, then after that, it's commingled or 50/50. Consult a real estate and perhaps a divorce attorney. Good luck. ... more
