Back in June of 2004, the US Public Interest Research Group conducted a survey in regards to the accuracy of the information contained in their credit reports. They asked adults in 30 states to order their credit reports and complete a survey. Here's what they concluded: Almost 8% were missing major credit, loan, mortgage, or other accounts that demonstrate the creditworthiness of a consumer. 22% listed the same mortgage or loan twice. 25% of the credit reports contained serious errors that could result in the denial of credit.  This included false delinquencies or accounts that didn't belong to the consumer. 30% of the credit reports contained credit accounts that had been closed by the consumer but remained listed as open. 54% of the credit reports contained personal demographic infor...

 ALOT! Home Staging does NOT have to be expensive. Many Professional Home Stagers provide many levels of service at different price points.  Budgets are always considered when I speak to my clients and I am well aware of being cost conscious especially in today's economy. I'd like to share with you two testimonials I recently received from local Realtors® I've been working with.  I started working with these Realtors® this year and they have committed to contacting me for a verbal home staging consultation for each of their new listings.  For $125 and up to 2 hours, Home Star Staging provides this service to home sellers in North Texas. Any home, in any price point can benefit from a home staging consultation.  In my professional opinion this service should be considered a standard part...

We think many potential buyers are waiting on the "bad news" to stop about the real estate market.  Our experience has been that homes that have been well maintained and/or updated and priced properly are selling very quickly.  The hardest thing for a property is over pricing and then chasing a falling price - the first thirty days on the market if of utmost importance.

Analogies are great. They help us understand why something that may not seem important to us at first glance really is. Let's use an analogy for curb appeal when selling your home and why it is so important to buyers. Let's compare it to blind dating. Bear with this and you're likely to understand why. Think of yourself as going on a blind date and the anticipation you feel before meeting that mysterious someone. They sound great on the phone, They looked attractive in a photo online They were readily giving you lots of information about themselves via emails.     You're nervous but excited at the chance to meet that special person that you've already gotten to know a little about. Could this be the person of your dreams, a soul mate, heck a partner for life? Or worse, they aren't who t...

If you haven't had a chance to visit the South Collin County ReStore- now's a great time to do it. There are 5 days left in their birthday blow out sale and almost everything (with just a few exceptions) is 1/2 off and the stock changes daily. I know I can never leave there without something in my car.  Lighting, furniture, home decor, you name it they've got something and the staff are so friendly and helpful.  Not only will you be getting a great deal but helping a great cause, Habitat for Humanity. Here's the e-newsletter I got this week with some of the deals: At Least 50% OFF (original price) EVERY Item in the ReStore (except Paint Supplies still at introductory pricing) Saturday 4/12 10am ENDS Sunday 4/20 at 5pm   Help Celebrate our 1st Birthday with a Blow-Out salePictures-Paint-...

When selling a house it's important to look at every room of your house through a buyer's eyes as they would see it upon previewing.  Want a simple way to see it from their perspective? Take a photo of it and see for yourself. It isn't always what you expect. This is a small laundry room below but obviously functional.  While living in a home we all know how our laundry rooms can get, especially if the chores get backed up. When selling however, we need to make a big effort to keep every room of the house as neat as possible for showing, including the laundry room. Basically no one wants to be reminded of chores associated with owning and living in a house while home shopping. Especially they don't want to see YOUR dirty laundry or smell it for that matter.Simple changes and corrections...
