Dee was very professional and extremely knowledgeable in helping our family find the perfect Lake House property on Lake Kiowa, Texas. She was even able to get us a tour of the lake...on the lake...before we purchased. If she did not know the answer to our questions, she promptly found out and responded back to us in a timely manner. She was a pleasure to work with...

Read Some Persistent Real Estate Agency Myths:


“I Should Price My Home To Leave Room for Negotiations.”

We believe that most serious buyers have done their homework and are educated on the market prices in your area.  If your home is overpriced by, for example, $20,000.00 - there are many potential buyers, who would pass on taking a look.  It seems to establish a kind of "fake price padding" problem, and sometimes leads to distrust and suspicion.  Keep you pricing competitive and accurate.

“Agents Will Say & Do Anything To Make a Sale.”

Sometimes that is absolutely true - and if you feel any kind of intuition that your Real Estate Agent has a personal profit agenda in their advice, bail immediately.  With a good reputable agent, you won't feel taken advantage of, or that they are looking to "make a fast buck".  They give solid and trusted advice, and usually are well-established in the community, with an honest track record.

“A Home Doesn't Need To Be Prepared For Sale”

Many times, it is difficult for a buyer to look beyond the aesthetics.  Their "house-hunting" experience need to provide them with an idea of what the new place will look like, when they move in.  This is an important part of the psychology behind purchasing a new home.  Make sure it is clean, organized and feels "Ready To Sell".

Frequently Asked Questions

Does My Credit Score Affect My Ability to Buy?

Yes, essentially your Credit Score will affect your chances and types of traditional home loans that will be options for you.  There are other types of unconventional loan services that you can qualify for, if your credit score is not optimal, but they do come with higher interest rates and more stringent parameters.

How Much Should I Plan on for a Down Payment?

Most home buyers, especially first-timers, need to plan on between 5% and 20% for their down payment.  This will vary and depend on your loan provider's requirements and loan contract.  The type and length of the loan also affect this percentage.

Should I sell my current home before buying a new one?

If the built-up equity in your current home will be applied to the down payment on the new home, naturally the former will need to be sold first.

Some home buyers decide to turn their current home into an investment property, renting it out. In that case, the current home will not need to be sold. However, your loan advisor will still need to evaluate your risk profile and credit history to determine whether making a loan on a new home is feasible while retaining title to the old home.

Buyers often have a short time frame to sell their current home when relocating to a new city because of a job transfer. If you are moving but taking a position with the same employer, check to see if they offer relocation assistance to help offset some of the costs.
