Buying a home can be complicated, so it’s easy to get misinformation about the process. A Texas REALTOR® can help you avoid problems, but here’s some clarification about a few false assumptions.
Myth: I can use sites that list home values to figure out a fair offer price. Truth:There are a lot of sites online that offer estimates of how much a home is worth, but they’re not always reliable sources. If you use them to come up with an offer, you may end up spending more than you need to. A Texas REALTOR® has access to accurate information about your market, other homes sold in the area, and property features, which can help you arrive at an appropriate offer price.
Myth: Sellers have to fix issues noted in an inspection report. Truth:They don’t—even if you ask them to. Repairs are a negotiable item like other terms of a contract. If a seller does not agree to make requested repairs and your contract includes a termination option, you have the right to terminate the contract prior to the option period’s expiration.
Myth: A seller has to accept my full-price (or above full-price) offer. Truth:A seller is not bound to accept any offer, even at full price or above. A seller may choose to accept an offer because of other favorable terms, such as an earlier closing date.
Your Texas REALTOR® can help clear up confusion when it comes to buying a home.

For our Purchasing Clients: we make sure you have access to EVERY home (not just those we list, or the three or four that we think you might like); and we will never pressure you.
For our Selling Clients: we market the heck out of your home; we give you updates on what we've done to sell your property every week along with feedback and activity on the home; we can also lease your property should it fail to sell--seamlessly. Finally, if you're ever unhappy with us, or your circumstances change, you can cancel our agreement.

The holiday season is here! No matter if you celebrate Christmas
"I choose Real Estate Market Place because of the choices and the quantity of homes listed on their website. Their internet presentation was also very good. The agent was very patient and clear on everything. The office location, the people on their team and the environment was impressive.
