UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Usually sometime in Spring, especially around March and April are the best times to list your home for sale.

Going with a realtor is most often the best option. Agent assisted home sales typically sell for about 13% more than FSBO homes.

We created UpNest,, for sellers looking to work with a great agent and save money at the same time. With our online marketplace, home sellers can confidentially submit their homes, and multiple top local agents will compete to obtain your listing. Some agents lower their commission rates to stand out, and every agent that submits a proposal is an experienced agent, so it's not the same as working with a low grade discount brokerage.

Good luck selling!

Hi Elizabeth!

On Google Maps, the commute really doesn't look too bad:,South+Houston,+TX&gl=us&ei=neX1T6KhMaaC2AXE3ezqBg&ved=0CAUQ8gEwAA

Of course, there is always a commute time to factor into your travel. To help you visualize the commute as you look for your next great place to live, Trulia has just launched commute maps to help you figure out the reality of a potential commute. Check them out here!

Hope that helps!

Sera Smith answered:
Are you referring to using non-traditional credit? I have several lenders that are VA based. Depending on what type of credit you have and your FICO score, then that decides which lender to use. Why do I have several different lenders that do VA? It's due to no two people are exactly the same. I have a few that go below the standard 620 FICO score. Not knowing what you mean exactly, I can't answer your question completely. If you would like to ask more questions, you can contact me at or call 1-800-681-2353.
Thanks and Have a Great Monday!
