Questions about homes for sale in Stonebridge Ranch, or looking for a Mckinney Realtor to sell your home?
If you’re thinking that only “model-like” homes sell, you couldn’t be farther from the truth. With the influx of recent relocationers into the area, investors are beginning to see opportunity in our area like never before. Growth “typically” means we will see rising home prices (supply vs demand) and owner-occupants as well as investors are looking at areas with great school districts to buy “deals” which can later be resold for profit.
If you feel your home is not “presentable” (Ie: ugly home), or you feel that you’ve have to first update it prior to even thinking about selling, or if putting your home on the market is not an option for you (for whatever reason) or if you’re behind in mortgage payments and fear a looming short-sale, contact me. I have legitimate cash investors looking for opportunities to own property in Texas (for the right deal). Their primary goal is not to “low-ball” you so contact me today to see if we can create a “win-win”.

When choosing to remodel a home, you may ask yourself if your work warrants a permit. Some choose to remodel or update a home when thinking of selling to gain an “edge” on the competition for a higher sales price. Some new investors are excited to get through a remodel, sell the home and reap the rewards of their labor. Some would just like a “facelift” on their current home. Whichever the case…you’ll likely need a permit (and possibly several).
Thanks to Pinterest, there seems to be more “do-it-yourselfers” (or the now, more popular “DIYer” than ever before. Some are confused by thinking that if you do the work yourself, it does not require a permit). The truth is, there aren’t many jobs which do NOT require a permit. The Texas Building code requires that all structural alterations of a home (pools, decks, fences, etc) AND interior remodeling projects require a permit. When in question as to whether your project requires a permit, contact your city.
You may think it okay to bypass the permit, thinking you won’t get caught, or asking yourself “what difference will it make”. If you have licensed contractors doing the renovation, they will typically take care of this step for you, but if there’s no permit, the work may not be warranted. This also holds true if doing the work yourself. Why does this matter? It may not, now…but problems may arise when you get ready to sell and the buyers lender may actually deny the loan if they discover major renovation work has been completed without permits.
A permit’s purpose is to ensure the work completed is SAFE.
No one likes to pay for excessive repairs when selling a property…especially if they are the fault of a contractor in which the work isn’t insured.
FAULTY SHOWER-PAN ANYONE?
When considering remodeling a home and in doubt of needing a permit, ASK. Take the extra step, time, and small fees now to protect yourself from costly disasters later.
Have questions as to whether remodeling is the best choice in selling your home, or have questions regarding net profit on future investment properties? Feel free to contact me! I’d love to help!

Great Blog on the Value of a Home-Inspection!
Originally posted on Selman Home Inspection Blog:
The Value Of A Home Inspection
Homebuyers and sellers both benefit from hiring a qualified Professional Home Inspector. It is important to be aware of the condition of a home, new or old, before settling on a sale price. New foundation, plumbing or wiring systems are often more critical and valuable than cosmetic upgrades. As long as the buyer is aware of these renovations via an inspector’s report, a listing should generate positive feedback.
