When is the best time to list your home in Crystal Falls, Leander TX? I get asked this question quite a bit from clients, no matter what neighborhood they live in. I think many agents would not do research and just say, "the spring." Yet, I've found after doing research in many of the neighborhoods that I follow, that the spring is often not the best time.My suggestion, it's important to have your agent research the market in your neighborhood. Don't listen to the news or read the paper to get your market knowledge. The macro economic perspective may not fit the micro economic status in your neighborhood. Here is an important chart I like to review at my listing appointments in Crystal Falls:  This graph compares the last two years for number of homes sold in the CLN area (the area wher...

I’m so excited! Not only is Independence Day a holiday I really enjoy celebrating, but summer is peak home buying season in many markets. As a lender, this makes me smile. As a boomerang buyer, it makes me grin ear to ear!  There are a lot of predictions of the number of home buyers re-entering the market after being affected by the housing crisis. Predictions, because this crisis left a bad taste in the mouths of many of those affected. Many who never in their wildest dreams anticipated having to short sale or lose their homes, myself included.  Even with those not quite ready to put their toe in the water, there are a LOT of home buyers who have and continue to re-enter the market. There are several financing options available for those of us who have experienced that four letter word...
