Selling a home in the Killeen TX real estate market brings out a very wide variety of emotions.   Some sellers are happy.  Some are frightened, and some are confused and not sure if they are even going about it the right way.   Happy sellers are ready to put the house on the market at the right price they have settled on with their realtor and get it sold.  They are ready to move on with the purchse of their next home.   Frightened sellers may have a family situation or a financial situation that is uprooting them from their home.  They don't want to sell but have to.   And the confused sellers are just not sure they are doing the right things to get their homes sold.    They aren't sure about the market, or about the entire selling process, and are unsure about how to find a listing ag...

New Elementary School for Cosper Ridge Estates, Killeen New School Planned for Cosper Ridge What could be better than an elementary school right in your own neighborhood! The new phase of Cosper Ridge Estates in south Killeen TX will be home to a new elementary school, set for completion in 2015.
