I actually had very good success recently posting a \"coming soon\" on Facebook a few days before a listing went live. The multiple offers we received had seen it on FB first and contacted their agent. That didn\'t help me secure new clients - but it did help sell the home quickly. My most effective marketing has been to past clients. I work almost solely on referrals now. I send regular mail and emails to my past clients monthly. I also provide a magazine to past clients a few times a year. I continue to maintain the relationships I have to continue to give them value after the transaction. This will make me top of mind for them and their friends and family
Wilbert\n\nThe term better is a matter of preference. From experience often a mortgage broker can close quicker, and is more accessible (i.e. weekends or evenings) than a bank. If you use a mortgage broker your loan will eventually be sold to a large bank to manage your loan (i.e. who you would send payments to) such as Bank of America, Wells Fargo etc. If you are currently working with a Realtor, they are usually a good source to obtain names of some quality lenders. You mentioned closing costs. If you are in need of closing cost contributions you can check the Texas Affordable Housing link below to see if you qualify for down payment assistance. If so, you can also see which lenders participate in the program (not all do). Ask any lender questions and don\'t just compare rates, but also fees, how long it takes for them to typically close on homes, availability etc. Best of luck on your venture towards home buying. Let me know if I can be of further assistance
I cannot answer why. I can say in general rentals can be very time consuming, and often a Realtor may not have the time available to assist regardless if it is Section 8 or a typical rental. Since Harvey hit, there is even less inventory of rental housing and even fewer Section 8. It may be that they are not ignoring you, it might be that there simply are no homes. I would recommend using the HAR app and specifying in your search Section 8 and contacting the listing agents directly. This can be found when you select \"more filters\" and look under lease terms. Section 8 will then appear. Be aware that when I entered the Pasadena market for instance there are no rentals so it will depend on where you are looking. I feel for all renters. It is a brutal rental market out there! Best of luck.

Homestead exemptions are calculated by the appraisal district and the taxing entities. There is no formula that can be applied to all entities and they will vary appraisal district to appraisal district somewhat. For instance the formula a City uses to calculate your homestead exemption will be different than your particular school district.\n\nTo gain the most accurate answer, and to also answer your question about over 65, I would recommend contacting your appraisal district directly. I have found in my conversations with them they are very helpful to provide just the right answer to your question.
I have solely used Docusign for most of my career and have been pleased and never had an issue. My client\'s love it - which is really the most important opinion. Many use Docusign in their business so they are familiar with it already (also a plus). I have not tried Digital Ink, but I know others who have and seem pleased.
It is unfortunate you are in this situation. Paragraph 13, 16 and 17 do detail a seller\'s responsibility to uphold their end of the contract as well as ways to resolve it. Your broker is ultimately responsible and you should definitely defer to their direction and be on the same page. You can also seek guidance/input from the Legal Department at Texas Association of Relators. Since it is a contract any advice on how to handle it would be legal advice and best handled by those with full knowledge and expertise.
Build a strong online presence including social media (Facebook, Instagram, twitter etc). This way as you build your sphere, and when they check you out online, it will build confidence. Work the sphere you have (small as it may be) and nurture and build those relationships. Look for other areas to be involved that connects you with people by volunteering or being involved in groups that will build connections in your target area. Some agents pay for referrals (i.e. Zillow, realtor.com etc) which worked some for my years ago but became too expensive with little results. I now use Buffini\'s method of working by referral to grow my business. You can also connect with the people from where you used to live - Houston and Texas are places many move too so you can often get referrals from out of the area.
If a home has had the additions done legally, the contractor should have pulled permits. You might check with the planning department (or department that oversees permits) in the city it resides to check to see if any had been pulled in the past and the scope of the work. That would be the most direct way to confirm. Of course on the Sellers Disclosure the seller is also suppose to stipulate if they are aware if any additions had been done without the required permits. When in doubt always follow due diligence.
You do not. When you go to rent a home, they will run your credit and also ask for income verifications etc. \n\nYou might want to speak with a lender to see if you can qualify to buy a home, if you are interested. With tight rental inventories it might be easier to buy a home ...and possibly save you some money as well.
