Selling Your Home FSBO - 5 Things To Prepare For

Selling Your Home FSBO - 5 Things To Prepare For

It’s hard to put everything associated with selling a home into priority, as to what thing is more important than the other… they are all very important.  Selling a home is complicated and requires extensive knowledge of real estate laws, negotiation techniques, and common local sales practices.  It also requires the skill and expertise to deal with unexpected bumps and turns as the sale progresses from start to finish (and if you don’t think unexpected bumps and turns will happen, well, you are either just unaware or possibly deluding yourself).  It’s important to know that, even after a home sale closes, mistakes can come back to haunt you.  Any error made when selling a home can surface weeks, months, or even years after the deal closes.  Lawsuits are extremely common in real estate, and frequently, they aren’t the cheap kind.  Realtors are trained extensively in how to deal with problems, or even better, how to prevent them; they also have the supervision and assistance of their experienced Manager or Broker to help them when any of the usual or common turbulence arises in just about every home selling transaction.  Owners who intend to self-represent their own sale (For Sale By Owner, or FSBO for short) take risks that they are largely unaware of and frequently expose themselves...

Smart Home Technology

The Level of Expectation

Much of this level of expectation has been set by people traveling to five-star hotels where they experience Smart Home Technology and come to expect those features in their home buying process.  With many high end hotel rooms, office spaces and even airplanes having Smart Home Technology; it has become an expected feature in the Luxury Property market.  Although Smart Home Tech was seen in ultra-expensive homes in the multi-million dollar range years ago, many now expect those features included in homes starting at $750,000....

Granbury Subdivisions

Granbury Subdivisions

Granbury Tx is full of incredible subdivisions that are in the center of one of the greatest real estate markets in the country.  With many of the subdivsions within the city of Granbury haveing differnt amminities, we wanted to give a brief discription of many of the most popular neighborhoods in Granbury.

Abe's Landing

Abe's Landing started out as a privately owned ranch operation.  The old Abe's Landing homestead house still remains in the subdivision!  Story has it that Abe's Landing was the point at which people on each side of the river would meet and "Abe" would ferry them back and forth across the river.  Today, Abe's landing is on the finest examples of a planned community in Granbury.  Newer homes priced from the mid $200s are located inside the front gate and as you move back toward the waterfront, home prices increase into the $700s.

Canyon Creek

The waterfront community of Canyon Creek is very unique and rustic!  Most of the waterfront properties have deep water at their shores as this community sits right on the main river channel.  Canyon Creek waterfront is truly unique in that the south bank shelters the lake from the wind, making this smooth waterfront the ideal place to wakeboard.
