Selling your home can be the experience of a lifetime, especially if you are selling through Rick Raanes of The Rock Star Group in The Woodlands, TX. There is a nearly overwhelming checklist of things to do before being able to show your Alden Bridge Woodlands Home for Sale, but you have made it through and are ready to throw on the finishing touches for your big open house.

Real estate is not an exact science as we all know.  We can run the numbers, market the home superbly, present a beautiful listing and for whatever reason, it doesn't sell as quickly as we would like.  Many times it is simply that the right buyer has yet to come along.   Recently I listed a beautiful Georgian-inspired home on a t 34,000 s.f. lot on the golf course here in The Woodlands.  The home was decorated beautifully and is a very traditional type floor plan.  Gorgeous inside and out!  Alas, no good offers.  A lot of lookers, some really low-ball offers yet no offers that had any substance to them.  (i.e., the old lease-to-purchase with half the paperwork missing, the low-ball offer with a very poorly completed contract, etc.) More on this topic in another post!   My client is one...
