I would suggest that you hire a local realtor to assist you and give you comps for your condo.

I hope that makes sense!

Susie Kay answered:
Then the home is probably larger. Are you the home seller or the home buyer? If you are the buyer then take it. If you are the seller when you first purchased the home what did your appraisal say? Did you add any addition to the home? Garage and porch are not supposed to be considered living area.

I would suggest that you discuss with your realtor as she/he knows the detail of your situation more than we do.

I hope this helps. Please give me a thumbs up or choose best answer if this helps you.

Take care!

Renee Dickman answered:
Price is based on location, condition and amenities. it's very difficult to answer your question with out actuality seeing your house. The bigger question is what you will meet with a sale. In the years you have been there you are paying the interest on your mortgage with out touching much of the principle. What you gain in sales
price will most likely be erased by fees you have and will pay.

Angie, I would follow the link below. It gives you a financial analysis of renting vs. buying.

If you think that buying is a good option after visiting that website - talk to a loan officer and get the numbers from them.

Run the updated numbers through the website and see the results of the financial analysis.

It really depends on the builder and what features you want. It is hard to give an average because prices are so varied. Just know that the tend to be more costly than regular builds. I suggest talking with a few builders about what you want and they'll probably be able to give you a more accurate answer. ... more

Please let me show you what I know are facts that answer your question honestly per your request from a market report released 8-8-13 from WCAOR "This July, for the first time in real estate history, more than 1,000 homes were sold in Williamson County in a single month. This represents a 30% increase over the number of homes sold in July of 2012, according to a market report released today by the Williamson County Association of REALTORS." I wanted to make sure the information I gave you was supported by the market source in our area to lay a foundation for the truth. I hope this helps cfalconc41! ... more

I would price your house below it's market value in order to generate excitement among buyers and get multiple offers quickly. If done correctly you should get offers well above your asking price that well equal the homes true market value. Fastest way to sell a property. ... more

Sam Gabilagon answered:
This situation is very frustrating to both the Sellers and their agent. But unless we (the folks here that volunteers to answer your questions) know the full situation and how the situation develops, we cannot really give you a fair answer as there are always 2 sides of the story. Not to mention the legalities of the contract.

As you can see, it is very easy for some of us to say YES you are entitled, NO you're not and it Depends.

As the respondents said, I am sure your agent explained the contract to you and answered your questions as it develops. This is part of your agent's job. Whether you believe him or not is a different story.

If your agent knows his stuff, I am sure he is working diligently so you can retain the earnest money. He asked you to take photos with dates to help you case. They can still go after it if they want to. If they decide to go to court with that earnest money, nothing can prevent them from doing that regardless if they are right or wrong. But is it really worth it? remember that you cannot put your home in the market if it goes to litigation/court no matter who is right or wrong. We have to pick our battles.. is it worth it or not?

I highly suggest you discuss this with your agent. He is there to answer your questions. As here in Trulia, we only know part of the story...

I hope your home is priced right so you can capture more buyers that are eager and ready...

Best of Luck,

Sam Gabilagon

I live and work in Georgetown. The most requested elementary schools I hear about are The Village and Ford Elementary. In that same area, there is a new elementary school opening in the fall. It has the same name as a school that is closing - McCoy Elementary. The school boundaries have been redrawn to accommodate this change. These are all schools where, if you live in their boundaries, you will be in the west/northwest part of Georgetown, which is advantageous for a commute to Killeen.

I really like working with military families as my son-in-law is in the army. If I can be of assistance, please feel free to contact me. Thanks for your service, especially today!

Did you get comps pulled? Do you need updated comps? Things can change in the six weeks since you posted your question.

If you are still not working with a Realtor I would be happy to help you re-evaluate! No pressure, no cost, just excellent service, and the opportunity to show you that if you know someone who needs a Realtor I would take good care of them and would appreciate the referral!

Morning Bekah,

I live in Round Rock (78664) and would be glad to do a market analysis for you. It is important to know what is going on in your neighborhood sales wise and upgrading wise. It helps also to know what your competition has done so that you don't put too much money in to something that will have little return when you sale. I help all my seller's in staging their homes, so if you are interested don't hesitate to contact me. ... more
