As long as the seller/listing agent sites the source they can change the square footage. I have run into a few situations where the square footage was significantly different than the appraisal district (larger and smaller). A seller typically does not notify the appraisal district if their home is larger because that is like saying \"hey I want to pay more taxes!\". While I don\'t believe a survey is an accurate measure of useable square footage something from an appraiser is. If there is a question about square footage it will obviously be rectified when the buyer has their own appraisal done, or you can request the home inspector do a general measure. FYI this measurement may vary from an appraiser who uses equipment specific to this.
An appraiser would be your best source for this. I have done this in the past and provided the appraiser\'s drawing as verification in docs available to agents in the MLS. You might contact a preferred local lender to get the name of an independent appraiser in your area.
An agent can ask \"if\" there are other offers. However a listing agent\'s response is based on their client\'s desire. If the seller does not want to disclose if offers have been received, then you can state \"my client has asked me not to disclose that information\". It crosses the line to ask, or share, who has made offers on a home, or the details of those offers. Likewise any information shared with one agent should be equally shared with all agents in fairness to all parties. If you have experienced an agent persuading parties to withdraw offers it might be a question for your broker and possibly TREC legal.
It varies among management companies. For the most accurate information for subdivisions in your area, contact the title company you use. They have first hand experience and could probably give you accurate and current numbers.
Paying for lead generation is difficult to gauge - it depends on where you are marketing and how much money you have/want to spend. If a zip code is saturated with top paying agents, the only leads you are going to get are crumbs that don\'t usually pan out. I would suggest you speak to other agents in your office to see what has and has not worked for them in your particular market area. I personally have used Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia and Homes.com at various points. Initially I had some good success with Realtor.com and Zillow however I am about to terminate the final one after seeing the quality of leads slowly deteriorate or be non-existent over the past few years. I now do most of my business by referral - even from some lenders. Provide exemplary and quality service to your clients AND continue the relationship after closing and you will see your business slowly build. Be sure your sphere of influence knows you are a Realtor to get the word out as well.
As you have seen by the answers previously - no it is not hard to find a professional photographer to take photos on listings. I provide this service to all my selling clients at no charge. My pet peeve is poor quality listing photos. On the flip side, I have been able to secure homes for my clients in this competitive market because the lack or quality of photos has kept many buyers away. If you are personally moving from out of state to Houston, I would encourage you to engage with a local Realtor that specializes in the area of town you are looking. Houston is HUGE and it is best to connect with someone who knows the area. They can access prior listings to a home to at least get a general idea if the property is something you are looking for - especially if the descriptions seems to align with your wants/needs in a home. I know from personal experience I have done many FaceTime tours with out of state/out of country clients to help them virtually tour a home and make a decision. You can use the \"find a real estate agent\" tool in the agents drop down. Search for agents who have a client experience rating to further assist you. If you are looking in Clear Lake, Friendswood, League City or further south, feel free to connect with me. Best of luck and may sellers start demanding quality photos from their agents to assist buyers like yourself!
A search for patio homes would be your best option. A better option would be to connect with a Realtor who specializes in the area of town you are hoping to buy. A knowledgeable Realtor will be aware of subdivisions that offer what you are looking for. They can also set you up with an automated search portal to notify you as soon as properties are listed. Use the \"find a real estate agent\" under the agents tab. You can select by zip code or area and further refine your results to those with reviews. If you are looking in the Clear Lake area I would be happy to assist you. Best of luck!

It is really a matter of personal preference. I have always opted for Sundays as it has traditionally been the day most buyers are looking for open houses. However, factors such as weather, holidays, local events may make a Saturday open house a better option. Realize that most open houses will bring neighbors and people browsing, although I did have a few open houses where buyers had agents. Their agents were unable to show and the open house was a nice convenience. In today\'s crazy market it may make sense to hold an open house right after listing to divert the bulk of traffic to that day and saving your sellers from having to constantly be away from home due to multiple showings. Personally in recent listings that were made live on a Thursday night the home didn\'t make it to the weekend to even make an open house necessary.
