How To Get Your Home Ready To Sell Fast For Open House Season In Dallas TX?!

        Open House Season is officially about to begin!  We all love looking at homes.  Whether we are clicking around on Realtor.com, watchings HGTV, or driving around town.  Some of us have every intent of buying or selling a home, but some of us want to see what others are doing with their home.  Regardless, it is fun to look at homes and people are about to kick it in to high gear when looking at a place to call their new home.  Going to Open Houses is honestly one of the reasons I became a Dallas Real Estate Agent.  I love looking at homes.  It makes me feel a little less excited about how my own home looks, but I digress.

        Spring is fastly approaching!  April is the official "Open House" season.  So right now is the time to get your home ready!  You are about to have perfect Dallas weather.  If you want to sell your home fast then you have to make sure your home looks good.  Values in Dallas are still at record highs.  They are going to be even higher for 2018.  Getting top dollar for your home means that you have to put in a little time and effort.  This doesn't mean you have to go out and spend thousands of dollars, but you have to spend money to make money.  In the real estate market that we are in, people are walking away with some serioius cash after closing.  Some home sellers are walking away from the closing table with tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars in profit!  Yes, I said hundreds of thousands of dollars!  So making a small investment of a couple hundred of dollars to get your home ready to sell should be a no brainer.  At most a small investment of $1,000 will go a long way.  People that are viewing your home will notice the small changes.

        There are so many ways to make a home look enhanced.  Sure ripping up carpet and putting down hardwoods would be ideal.  Also, updating all the countertops in your home would be amazing.  This would really get the buyers excited!  For those of us that have to be more financially reasonable there are other options as well that will have your home ready for "Open House" season.  Some small things that go a long way are: painting or replacing your front door, adding a fresh Welcome mat, planting flowers and potted flowers around the home, replace the mailbox, painting walls a neutral color, getting rid of all the cluter, pressure washing the concrete, having carpets shampood, and updating hardware on cabinets.  Theses are all cheap to do and take very little time.  At most you could spend 2 weekends getting all of these items done.  That is reasonable considering someone is about to make the biggest investment decision when buying your home. 

        Lets get ready to sell our homes this Spring!  Take pride in your home this year and do these small things that I have mentioned to get your home loooking fresh.  I have been a real estate agent for 4 years now and you would be amazed how some fresh flowers and a new front door, among a few other things, will sell your home faster.  TLC goes a long way in this industry.  You only have one chance to make a first impression.  It needs to be a good one.  A Realtor can only do so much when selling your home.  So put in a little elbow grease on your end too.  It will be well worth it!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

Pick The Best Real Estate Agent In Dallas When Investing In Dallas Real Estate!

        2018 is already off to an amazing start.  Stocks are back up to triple digits after taking a small dip and investors are pumping tens of millions of dollars into the Dallas Real Estate Market.  I have recieved numerous calls from investors asking about how hot the market is in Dallas.  They want me to help them find the right deals to invest in.  Ranging from single family homes, duplexes, townhomes, commercial real estate, and more.  The list goes on.  Investors are flocking with their money to Dallas.  They are lookig to strike while the iron is hot.  In real estate we all know that it can all change in the blink of an eye.

        Dallas has been one of the strongest real estate markets in the United States for years now.  So it is no surprise that investors want to move their money here with hopes of seeing large profit margins.  Keeping your money in the bank does nothing for financial gains.  That is why the real estate market is one of the smartest places to invest your money.  Within the past month I have met with clients from Mexico and abroad to talk about where to find the next big deals...and we aren't talking about one or two small home renovation jobs.  I have spoken with investors that want to spend over $20 million in real estate deals!  Holy crap that is a lot of money.  So choosing the right real estate agent is very important to them.  Don't we all want to invest our money wisely?

        I have been a real estate agent for 4 years now.  Ever since my first days in the industry I have been building my protfolio and soaking up knowledge like a sponge.  I wanted to do it all once I learned that there was more to being a real estate agent then just finding a single family home for families.  Don't get me wrong I still primarily find homes for families, but I have opened myself up to the whole gambet of possibilities.  There are a lot of different avenues to down...no pun intended.  I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing people.  In the process I have learned new things about the real estate market and built a team of realtors that can help with any opportunity thrown my way.  I take my job very seriously and want to build an empire.  Not every Realtor is created equal.  I work endlessly to attract new investors that I can work with.  I'm happy to say that it is all paying off.  2018 is going to be a big year.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

What Is The Current State Of The Dallas Real Estate Market and What Is The Forecast For 2018?

        Tonight Donald Tump gives his first State Of The Union speech and it had me thinking about the state of the real estate market.  Everyone is starting to feel the affects of the huge tax reform bill that was just passed.  Bonuses and raises are being passed out to thousands of hard working Americans.  Having more money in your wallet affects peoples decisions when it comes to buying a home.  So the landscape of the real estate market is going to change hugely for everyone.  Not just large citites like Dallas, but other up and coming cities.  Also, real estate agents personally are going to feel the effects when closing more deals and when it comes to doing their taxes.  So everyone is about to see a new frontier.

        It has been a long time since the housing bubble collapsed in 2008.  Well it has been almost 10 years to be exact.  Times have changed since then.  The housing market has made a huge rebound.  Dallas is one of the strongest housing markets in the United States.  It keeps getting stronger each year.  It is already off to a good start.  Normally December and January are the slowest months in real estate, but real estate agents are still pounding out new listings to put on the market.  With lower taxes on the horizon that means more money in your pocket.  So new jobs are about to be created which means there will be more homes sales.  The economy and housing market are so tightly woven togeher.  One affects the other.  This means that Dallas could explode even more then it already has.  Values are hitting all times high.  It doesn't matter what your political stance is.  The truth of the matter is that the state of real estate is strong right now because the economy is strong.  It will continue down that path as long as the economy keeps climbing.

        As a Dallas real estate agent I have to stay up to date on everything.  I have to know about what companies are moving to Dallas, which ones are moving away from Dallas, and I have to know about the markets.  Right now people are feeling optomistic about their wallets.  They are looking for a helping hand finacially and they may have finally gotten that.  The state of real estate is amazing right now.  We all should take advantage of it.  I know as a real estate agent  I am kicking it into high gear.  Things could change in a flash.  So I have to be ready to go for the gold!  Like they say, "Go Big Or Go Home"...Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

Calling All Top Dallas Real Estate Agents! We Are Hiring The Best Talent For 2018!

        Calling all Dallas Real Estate Agents!  Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is looking for the Best Real Estate Agents in Dallas!  For 2018 we are wanting to grow our brokerage by hiring the Top Real Estate Agents in the DFW Metroplex.  Coldwell Banker has been around for over 110 years and it keeps on getting better and better.  It is the #1 Real Estate Brokerage to work for.  I have been with them for almost 3 years now.  I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else.

        Tax reform is passed and the Dallas housing market is about to be kicked into high gear.  It was already on fire, but now it will be even bigger and better.  Jobs are still flocking to Dallas everyday.  Amazon just announced its top 20 picks for their next headquarters and Dallas made the cut.  My fingers are crossed that Amazon moves here.  It would change the whole landscape.  Dallas already has so much to offer.  Real Estate Agents need to be highly trained in this bustling city of ours.  The housing market is always on the move, and if you blink then you could get left behind.  Even right now for the New Year it is staying strong.  Home buyers are snatching up homes left and right.  Numerous real estate agent friends of mine are have multiple offers within a few days of putting a home on the market.  This is why Coldwell Banker is hiring and training the best.  In Dallas you have to be the best!  Otherwise you will get squashed by the competition.

        There are a lot of real estate brokerages in Dallas.  However, only a few of them have the tools to properly train their Realtors.  It takes a lot of money to invest into your agents.  Coldwell Banker is the leader of the pack when it comes to sparing no expense.  This year alone they are coming out with over a dozen new features to offer agents so they can grow their own personal real estate business.  They are teaming up with companies like CBS, D Magazine, and 360 West Magazine to help their realtors sell more homes.  Some of the tools that they are offering are game changing.  Some of the tools are in the thousands of dollars, but Coldwell Banker is able to offer them to us at a fraction of the cost.  One new feature is a listing concierge service that helps us market a new listing.  It has so many cool perks that puts power in our hands and allows us to look like a rockstar real estate agent.  The breakdown of costs would be somewhere in the $3,000 price range, but because Coldwell Banker has so many relationships with companies it will cost roughly $250 for an agent.  This is amazing!  Having access to tools like this at fractions of the cost will help even the Top Realtors look amazing and save marketing dollars at the same time.  This is groundbreaking.

        I love working for Coldwell Banker.  They have helped me take my business to new heights.  I would have not been able to do it without them.  2018 is going to be a big year.  The new tools that Codlwell Banker is going to help me be the best.  So if you are looking to take your career to the next level then come to Coldwell Banker.

Realtor.com Stats Are In! Ranking The Top 10 Housing Markets For 2018...Dallas Came Out On Top!
By Alex
January 5, 2018

        Everyone knows I love being a Dallas Real Estate Agent!  The past 3 years have been a steady incline in home sales for me.  2017 was an amazing year for Dallas Real Estate.  So naturally when the market does good then I do good.  More importantly my clients do good as well.  Many homeowners are singing the praises from all the equity they recieved when selling their homes.  One of my clients paid a whopping $50,000 cash for a home in Dallas back in 1995..and not just Dallas, but in Midway Hollow.  If you live in Dallas then you know Midway Hollow has million dollar mansions popping up all over the streets in that part of town.  That same homeowner that bought his home for a $50,000 listed his house last year for over $350,000!  Wow!  That's what some people would call cashing in big! 

        January is always an exciting time of the year.  Everyone is freezing their buns off, we are all recovering from the Holidays, taxes are coming up, and we look forward to the New Year.  Experts are saying that Dallas will be one of the top places to see the most action in 2018 for growth and sale prices.  I am refering to the stats that Realtor.com pulls from their analytics every year.  After all they are one of the biggest real estate search tools on the internet and pull a lot of numbers.  They are not 100% accurate because they pull from public tax records.  None the less they are a great source of real estate knowledge.  Anyone who watches the Real Estate Market knows that Dallas has been on the radar for a long time.  Plus Realtor.com ranked Dallas as #2 in their report...so I would be an idiot to argue with that. 

        We all know that Dallas has been slowly becoming one of the strongest housing markets in the U.S.  Analysts ranked Las Vegas as #1, but Dallas as #2 with a median home price of $339,300, predicted sales growth of 6%, and predicted price growth of 5.6%.  Now I am a Real Estate Agent and not some math whiz, but those numbers are amazing!  Just 4 years ago the median home value was around $150,000... I could't be more proud of my city.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.
