Dan Tabit answered:
Is your home no longer meeting your needs? Is it too small or not located where you want to be? If it's not serving you and you can sell it successfully, sell it. Before you do however, give some thought about where you will go next. Are homes there more or less expensive, will you have a better home for the money or smaller?
Selling just to sell, isn't a good idea. Selling when your needs changed or a better opportunity presents itself makes sense.

This is really pretty pitiful. Usually, you can't get an agent to leave you alone. LOL. I work and live in Rockwall and would be so excited to help you purchase your next home!

I consider myself a consultant, priding myself on more than just finding you a house but also walking you through every phase of the purchase process. Please give me a buzz, day or night, if you need a passionate buyer's agent on your side!

Happy House Hunting!

There is truly no average. Some take longer than average to "take in" the home. I've been in some situations showing buyers before and truly thought "what more can you look at before you know if you like it or not" to the point that it became awkward. Some process information much quicker and can immediately walk into a home and know that they like it or not.

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell if a potential buyer liked the home or not based on the length of time they were there. Some may be quick because they "do" like it and others may walk in, immediately know that the house is not for them and move on. Some may be meeting their Realtor at this home for the first time and have a lot of questions (possibly about the home-buying process in general...and not just your home).

Hope this helps. :)

Two ways to try and get this answered. If you listing agent is paying to be in Trulia, he can persue this answer through his account rep. Otherwise, go to the bottom of any page and you'll see a HELP button at the bottom of the page on the right side. I'm not sure how much Trulia's customer support checks this forum unless it's a flagged post. Good Luck109 ... more

It's a wonderful place to live, the Royse City schools are good. But a large area of 75189 zip code is in the Rockwall ISD which is outstanding. Rockwall/Heath High School is a very desired school to attend. Even though we have a Royse City address we are technically 7 miles south of Royse City. It is good quite country living. ... more

Stacy Petruzzi answered:

There is a lack of rentals in Royse City at this time which has pushed rental rates up a bit.

It is my opinion that listing with an agent is best for the owner. The agent is able to do a credit check and background check so you may make an informed decision about your tenants.

Many of the houses that I've helped lease have had tenants remain for multiple years.

I hope this helps you in your decision.

This is a phrase often used by agents to explain which side of the sale they worked. In this case, the agent is stating they worked the buyer side of the transaction versus working the listing (seller) side. ... more

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
A loan modification is generally allowed by a lender because you are having financial hardship that you documented to them. Usually, your credit has already suffered a lot because of those difficulties.

Despite the fact that you have received some assistance from your current lender on a mortgage that is probably around the same level (if not lower) than a new mortgage on the foreclosure you're considering, you should stop and count your lucky stars.

Financial difficulties often come from life circumstances that we're just not prepared to handle, like a layoff or medical bills, but those are supposed to teach is to prepare for future problems.

It sounds like you were over-stretched or at least didn't have a plan that covered difficulties before. It would not be prudent to step into another situation with the same or higher mortgage payments without first considering your financial plans.

Take a moment and think about what you would do if the same events occurred on the new house. Would you have the same set of problems and ask the lender to modify your loan? If so, it's time to get organized and sock away some reserves and build your finances and change your spending habits to provide a way out for your family in case of difficulties. Do this before looking for another house.

All of us want to have a nice place to live with plenty of space, but temptation surrounds us on every turn, not just a bigger better house but flat-screen TVs, new cars and so on. We have to learn to cope with the hand life has dealt us. Lenders believe this also, which is why they demand that you demonstrate you have learned your lesson by not having lates or collections for 2 years after you get away with a short sale.

Take stock of what you have financially and spiritually, and try to be happy. Temptation is the road to destruction.

Andre doesn't know if he can offer you a short sell or not.
Typical slimeball solicitation we get from time to time.
