it shouldn't be too difficult as most everything can be done by e-signatures and email. If your TX home needs some remodeling or rehab, or it if has problem tenants in it then this will create some issues...but none that can't be solved. ... more

I have polybutel pipes in one of my homes. I had one leak last year but nothing else and it is 21 years old. There is nothing that says they will fail or leak or anything else. It's like having aluminum wiring, it was ok to use and could last forever or go bad tomorrow. The buyers usually have an inspection period which allows them to do inspections and find out things. If this bothers them they can bail out normally. Not much you can do. ... more

As long as it takes and in my opinion shooting trying to figure out how long it will take is an exercise in futility.. Most homes are marketed well, the truth is right now is there are just way more houses for sell than their are people buying houses.

Average DOM for Active Props it 110 with a low of 1 and high of 848
Sold is Average is 74 with a low of 1 and high of 676

No you are not required to pay any of the buyer's closing costs. That is simply a negotiable item. A common practice that is done is to raise the sales price by the amount they want you to pay and then you can pay it. This way they don't have to come up with the cash upfront and you are not out the money.

The key is to make sure that the home will appraise for the new sales price.

Yes, it does. Normally the smaller the sqft in an area the more price per foot it will bring the larger the lower the price. Unless, all are about the same this is a general rule to go by. I hope that helps. ... more

It depends on the size of the yard too. If the pool doesn't take up the entire yard then I think it would hurt you in the long run when it comes to selling. So many people want to have a pool in Texas. Also, depending on the condition of the pool, does it need to be replastered? painted? if it needs too much work, then you are better off filling it up.

I am also assuming that you are talking about an inground gunite right?

It all depends on the tax advantage I would recommend for you speak with your CPA and place it all on a piece of paper. I know that I have leased property for less knowing well in advance that the market in an area was going to spike I made the money back plus a ton more. Or I allow a tenant to live on property for less while the improvements take place I still make money
