It has been a beautiful disaster in Texas, Our Texas.As I sat in class in Grapevine MetroTex Association of Realtors a couple of weeks ago -- Broker Responsibility followed by Legal Update -- I anxiously watched weather analysts post where Harvey would strike and at what category level.Concerned about big things like my family in Corpus Christi, Houston, Tomball, Kingwood, The Woodlands, Katy, Cypress and Victoria, as well as sweating the small stuff like class and my license renewal, I pondered all the good things that do come from challenges in an effort to comfort myself, knowing THE WAVE was about to hit.What GOOD comes from BAD?In the case of a storm like Harvey, how many GOOD stories did you see?I have one.My sister-in-law hopped in a truck in Fort Worth and went down and boat sea...

Preparing Your Fort Worth Home For Sale  Preparing your Fort Worth home for sale. Pack up those personal photographs and family treasures. Buyers may not be able to see past your personal material  and might be distracted.   You want buyers to imagine their own personal photos on your walls.   You want buyers to say "I can see myself living here."  Rearrange bedroom closets and kitchen cabinets. While perspective buyers are viewing your home they will open closets - they will look in your cabinets. What will they think if items are poorly arranged or worse,  crammed in tight spaces - making your space appear to be small?  What if items tumble and fall!  If everything is organized their impression will be - there's enough space here for MY  personal items.  Although there is a paragraph ...

  10 Record Keeping Tips For Selling Your Fort Worth Home It is important to record and file information relevant to your property once you purchase. I always suggest not waiting until you decide to make a move. It will take time to gather this information from old bills, tax statements, work receipts, service contracts, and warranty documents, but it pays off when you sell your Fort Worth home.  I'm able to research and answer a few of the questions that may be asked by prospective buyers about your home and property. The following questions can be expected and you should have the information to answer them:  ● What do you pay in property taxes? This may change yearly.● How much does it cost to heat and cool your home? A general answer such as during the different seasons would be help...

8 Tips for Selling Your Fort Worth Home This Summer If you could sell your Fort Worth home under ideal conditions this summer, your life and that of your real estate agent would be much easier. But that’s not always possible. Even though summer is traditionally a period of high sales activity in our area, certain conditions can make a summer home sale difficult.  If you plan to add your home to this summer’s sale statistics, the following tips can help to make your home more summer-friendly to potential buyers.  1. Curb appeal is possibly more important in late spring and early summer than at any other time of year. With extended sunlight, everything outdoors will be on display longer. Home buyers have more time to view properties. Shrubs, perennials, trees and lawn should be at their b...

When Can I Sell My Home And Not Pay Capital Gains Taxes In Texas?  You’re ready to sell, possibly to move to a larger home, maybe downsizing or relocating and hate the idea of paying Uncle Sam more money than you’re already letting go of yearly. So you ask about the rule for paying capital gains taxes when selling a home in the Fort Worth or surrounding area.  ___________________________________We all know home ownership does offer tax breaks including mortgage interest, property tax and home office deductions just to list a few.  Most of my clients live in their home between 5 and 7 years before they make a move to a new home.  Some decide to lease their home and others will list to sell.  Unexpectedly due to changes in a job or marital status this need to move arrives sooner.  No one ...
