Working with Coleen was a great experience from beginning to end. She walked us through every step of what to expect and was there to answer any questions we had along the way. We weren't sure how home sells were during the time we decided to put our home on the market but Coleen assured us that things were picking and and they did. Coleen marketed our home so well that we received two offers within a month of listing it. Coleen is so energetic and is truly the most hard working, dedicated realtor I know.

If you buy a pre-owned home and put in nail down hardwood floors as opposed to glue down plank hardwoods be sure to consider the height differential on the baseboards and staircase. They frame in differently to accommodate the height. If you are building with a builder and go to the design center, you are able to select hardwoods in the kitchen & breakfast nook. In this case, the builder will calculate the height difference that true hardwoods have in comparison to ceramic tile. As for textured walls, the trend here in Dallas Real Estate is to do a Monterrey style texture on the kitchen & bathroom walls. We are still seeing a lot of orange peel texture. As for the skip trowel walls done around 2006, we are not seeing that trend anymore, it's phased out of popularity.

But, upon more reseach I discovered that the buyer and seller signed an agreement between the two of them not to disclose the sales price. In a few months the tax records may show the loan amount. This could serve as bench mark to know about what they paid for it.Answered: Mar 29, 2012What great answers to your question. Have a Realtor create a market analysis for you on your current home. This will give you a bench mark for how much you will want to list your house for in today's market. Begin identifying what criteria is important to you in your more spacious home, think about desired location, square feet, bedroom & bathroom count. Set a target date for yourself to be in your new home. You can obtain the name of a few websites where you can look up the current homes for sale and also ask an agent to send you market updates. Set an appointment with your agent to visit the homes for sale. Ask your agent to explain what is a contingent offer. If you have more questions about the process, please ask.Answered: Mar 1, 2012I looked up the owner's name on the public record for this property, it indicates Camilla & Willie Lee are the owners and it is not on the market.Answered: Mar 1, 2012Camilla & Willie Lee are the owners on the public record.

I'd be happy to see what other properties are out there that fit your needs.Answered: Jan 9, 2011The reason the property is priced so high is because it's being marketed at commercial property rather than residential. That is how they justify asking $399,000.

Step 1 is to open up a deposit credit card. Example: Go to the bank with $2,000 and open a deposit credit card. Begin using the credit card, this will start the process of building credit. Step 2 Buy groceries, or other needs put it on the credit card and then pay it off. If you apply for 10 things at once you won't get anywhere. So, it is a slow process.Answered: Oct 25, 2010In answer to: How long has this house been on the market?The house has been listed on the market for 3 months. The status of the property is contingent contract. This means that a buyer has made an offer, the seller accepted it, and before it can close it is likely that the buyer's current property needs to close escrow.
