Hi Angie,
Believe it or not, right now is a great time to sell!!
Even though December is historically slower, there are still many active buyers and multiple offers are still the rule of the day!
If your house is ready to role, take advantage of the low inventory and go now!!
If you need help, just let me know.
Linda Baker, Alain Pinel Realtors

You cannot have it both ways:

You have chosen to be an FSBO; you sent a message that you do not, (for whatever reason) want to use a Realtor:
The #1 reason is that you do not want to pay the price of Marketing.
In fact, your choice screams that.

Realtors are reluctant to approach you; they do not want the fight and headaches that come with a FSBO.

Any type of property in any price range tends to lease well in the Houston market place. A home in that price range could get anything from $2,000-$3500 a month depending on condition, location, etc.

Very hard to give you an exact number because there are too many variables. In general, inside the Houston 610 Loop located properties in Houston lease very well. However, most leases are $1000-$2000 a month. Higher than that are a little less common, but there is still a demand.

You can.

However, would you want to be represented by an agent that is trying to get the highest price for their client, the seller?

A possible reason that the 2 agents gave you above final sales price estimates is because.... they are estimates. If you were an actual bidder on either of those 2 homes you would find yourself in a bidding war. In a bidding war prices jump up in small increments through counteroffers so it is a very controllable environment and if you want to jump ship you leave, easy as that.

Yes, agents are focused on closing a deal, this should be quite obvious because if they don't close the deal they are wasting their time since you, the buyer will not be paying them.

What do you mean you are interested in getting a good deal? Are we talking about non populated areas of the California bay area? Everything right now IS a good deal if you include the current interest rate and the current rebounding economy. A rebounding economy means home prices will go up, we've seen this in the market as we have already hit the pricing bottom. The real estate market works based on comparables so if you don't buy now, in 3 months time the price will be higher. The only counter argument to this is if you don't believe the economy is getting better, that home prices will drop down again, and that the interest rate will get even lower.

First and foremost they should have the designation of REALTOR®
All Realtors® are licensed to sell real estate as an agent or a broker but not all real estate agents are Realtors®. Realtors® belong to the National Association of Realtors and pledge to follow the Code of Ethics, a comprehensive list containing 17 articles and underlying standards of practice, which establish levels of conduct that are higher than ordinary business practices or those required by law. Less than half of all licensees are Realtors®.
If you have an agent in mind the first thing to do is simply Google their name. A good agent will likely have dozens of pages with infomation you can review. Then visit their website and look for testimonials and additional information regarding their careers.
Referrals from a trusted friend or business colleague are a great resources.
You are welcome to contact me directly at 201-400-2980
if I can be of any further assistance I would be happy to help you in any way. Best of Luck!

There may be some very good qualities of a DR Horton home, as there are with other area "box" builders. For instance, you do get a lot of square feet for the $ per sqft sales price. However, there should be no confusing a "box" or "production" builder with a true custom builder. My company, Monarch Homes, is a custom builder. We design and build your home just as you want it from the beginning. We nurture our relationships with our Owners to form a partnership in the construction of your new home. Our Owners are involved in every phase of construction, working hand in hand to build your "home"....not just a house. Typically, with a "box" builder, you sit down at the beginning with a sales rep, pick out the options and upgrades that they offer to their limited existing plans, sign the deal and then come back when the home is finished to close.
For more info on Custom Builder please contact me directly. Thanks.

First thing that you should do is to talk to a mortgage broker or a mortgage banker. They will give you the maximum you qualify for in a purchase. Then you need to decide what you are comfortable paying and thatwill help you and your agent to see the best properties for you. Credit score is only one factor in purchasing a home. Good Luck to you and make sure you use a local agent. ... more

Go to your local building and safety and ask them your permit questions. I think its more the cost of adding a bathroom. A two bathroom house sells much better than a one.

I am familiar with Mountain View (location where you posted your question) and I am also familiar with Fallbrook have family that lives there. My opinion is that you will have difficulty finding real estate in either of those locations for 11K. If your down payment is $11k, you might be able to buy something around the $250k range with FHA financing. ... more

I live and work at Coldwell Banker, in Cupertino , and have good experience with Single family homes and Multi family all depends on what YOU want for your family!
You have to financially qualify for both, though few criterias to qualify for Multi-units is a bit different. I have good licensed contractors to help you with re-modeling/repairing..... VFM is more in multi-family as you get help paying your mortgage, but then you have to deal with a smaller home for your own family and dealing with renters, and maintainance problems.....
Please do contact me to come in and chat in detail, then make an informed choice! Check out my website...
Be well and safe, regards,

My NC Homes Team answered:
I don't know your specific market but I do know real estate. There are only two reasons properties don't sell, one is price which you can do something about, the second is there's little or no buyer activity at this time for properties like yours. If your home would typically appeal to families with children for example this isn't the time their out there looking. Families with children typically make their move and close by July at the latest so that their settled in for the coming school year. You could ask and perhaps your agent can prepare a report from the MLS they work with that would show you how many showing there have been on homes like yours within the past 30 days and how many comparable properties went under contract. (I can do this for my clients, but again don't know what system your local MLS uses and whether it's possible for agents to do this in your area)

I understand your frustration but many markets are slow and perhaps yours is one of them. Talk with your agent and see what their advice is.

I have a lot of experience with Lennar homes in Minnesota and know the Martin Farms development well. I can't stress enough to make sure you let them know you are working with a realtor and make certain to get a realtor with a reputation you can trust and rely on to help negotiate the best price, terms and selections. I am happy to discuss this further with you at your convenience. Give a call anytime. My number is in my profile here on Trulia. ... more

Tim Moore answered:
You should be as mad at your lender who printed a price on your prequal letter. I tell lenders to never do that, just put that you are well qualified to buy.

So walk away and see if you can rewrite a lower offer and get it accepted. You should have said NO, you had the ability to do that so don't blame your agent, you can share in the fact you said YES. Did the appraisal come back and show the price you paid was good? If so be happy, if not you get to start over and tell the lender to not put a qualified amount on the letter next time. ... more
