While sitting behind a Pick-Up Truck at the stop sign waiting for the truck to move the other day, I couldn't help but notice the advertising for My Appliance but it was really the woman that caught my eye in that teased up hairdo flip, big earrings and poka dotted dress.
STOP - I thought to myself, how important is it today for women to follow the fashion trends whether that is in her kitchen or appearance? Gone are the days when you'd probably see a person like the one on the back of the truck but is appearance in general that important?
Get Rich Quick - With so many Investors and advertising gimmicks on late night T.V. about flipping houses and making people rich, are buyers "Overlooking structural problems because the cosmetics of a remodel were so pretty," asks members of the TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®?
Buyers Beware! Offering more for cosmetic improvements without a Home Inspection Report by a licensed or Certified Inspector, Agent representation, settling to pay more for fear of multiple offers or making a bold move to compete with multiple offers more than you can realistically afford can result in costly mistakes.
Life Happens - Kids grow up. Some kids move out; some move back in. Education is costly. Jobs are never permanent. The weather is too hot or much too cold. Spouses no longer love each other. Unexpected medical bills. People of all ages get into trouble and families could face legal battles. Is offering more than a property worth today really worth it if the home you paid over value for today has to be sold and owner owes more today than the home is worth?
"Working with a Texas REALTOR®
Now that's a smart move."
