white rock lake homes: Let's Put Things into Perspective... - 04/27/11 08:26 AM
It's 1971...
You have your Firebird & Led Zeppelin's blaring in the background . . . . or you have your bell bottoms, afro & disco ball!
     
You pay..
40 cents per gallon for gas..
8 cents for a stamp..
43 cents per pound for Turkey..
$150 per month in rent..
the average new home sale is $25,250..
and your interest rate is 7.48%!
 
Today's Interest Rates -> Starting around 5%
 
Even in the 70's you couldn't borrow money as cheap as you can today!!
What are you waiting for..??

white rock lake homes: First Impressions are EVERYTHING !!! - 04/12/11 08:37 AM

As Spring is upon us, more and more each day I see people working in their yards.  It's the perfect time for it!  Especially if you're here, in Dallas, TX -> 70 - 80 degree weather, clear skies and lots of sunshine!  You gotta love the state of 2-month winters!! ;)  So, with this being said, I thought a blog in regards to landscaping would be appropriate. 
I, sad to say, do not have a green thumb by any means; very strange considering my father owns a landscaping an lawn business! Definitely didn't pick up that gene.. ha  But, if … (5 comments)

white rock lake homes: The Truth.. Plain & Simple - 04/06/11 09:41 AM
Pricing Misconceptions
It is not only important, but IMPERATIVE to price your property properly - at competitive market value at the BEGINNING of the listing agreement.  Historically, the FIRST offer is typically the BEST offer you will receive.  And furthermore, here are six matters Buyers simply do not care about:


It is important to remember that the value of your property is determined by what a BUYER is willing to pay, and what a SELLER is willing to accept in today's market.
Buyers make their pricing decision based on comparing your property to other properties that SOLD in your area.

white rock lake homes: Short Sale.. an Oxymoron..!?? - 03/29/11 07:10 AM


Short Sales - Increase the Odds of Closing with Experienced Professionals
A short sale is when a homeowner is trying to sell the home "short" of foreclosure, and the term "short sale" is extremely misleading and, really, is anything but that! They take time and can be very frustrating. And, only a small number even close. According to an August 2010 article in Bankrate.com, 1 in 5 offers turn into short sale closings. 20%!??  With numbers like that, it makes you wonder why even bother??  But, for those who are patient and have their ducks in a row, a short sale, … (7 comments)

white rock lake homes: Where in the world are we?? - 03/28/11 08:43 AM
With no major developments in Japan or the Middle East and little economic data on the schedule, mortgage markets had one of their quietest weeks of the year. The only significant market moving news was an unexpected announcement from the Treasury on Monday, which pushed mortgage rates a little higher. For the rest of the week, mortgage rates barely changed. The Treasury announced on Monday that it will begin selling its remaining $142 billion in agency-guaranteed mortgage-backed securities (MBS) holdings. Beginning this month, the Treasury plans to sell up to $10 billion per month, as they wind down the emergency programs … (0 comments)

white rock lake homes: When it rains, it pours... - 03/22/11 11:07 AM
But I dance in the rain!! ;)

I know this industry can be a roller coaster in which when it's good, it's GREAT!!! and when it's bad, it can be really bad.  But I think it's important to keep in mind why we're in Real Estate - why we get up every morning, work our rear-ends off for 12, 14, sometimes 20 hours, and at the end of the day, may or may not get paid.  I personally love what I do!!  I love the excitement of working hard for my clients and seeing the look of joy on their faces … (3 comments)
