Who doesn’t love a snow day? Cuddling on the couch with a mug of hot cocoa while watching movies can make anyone not want to venture out into the cold. Especially if you're a Texan. Many of us were not expecting the Winter Wonderland, we received this past week end. Next time you find yourself in this spot, it will be a good idea to head out for half an hour to protect your home, especially if you want to sell in the future. Check out these tips on protecting your home that you may not have considered.

Clear Your Vents: Make sure your furnace vents are clear of snow. Carbon monoxide could build up if your furnace vent is blocked.  A blocked vent may also cause a hot water heater to quit functioning. Use…

 A common question sellers ask when I’m touring their house during the home evaluation is “Why should I choose you?”.  It’s a fair question, and arguably the most important question they should ask when we’re meeting.  So why should a seller choose me?  Well let’s take a look:

-       Heavy social media presence – Between my own online profiles and those of TM5 Properties, we have a reach of more than 6,300 followers.  That’s more than any others in town!  So when I market your home, I’m not just posting the listing to a couple other websites, I’m also immediately communicating with a huge pool of potential buyers.

Neighborhoods in College Station, like Alexandria, have shown a consistent trend in their average sale price – they have appreciated, meaning their values have risen over the last 5 years.  As a seller, you could have more than 40% equity in your home if you purchased your home in 2012 or earlier AND originally had a down payment of 20%… that’s huge!  Also, those values don’t include the mortgage payments you’ve been making every month.  How great is that?!

 

There are many uses for a seller’s home equity, one of the major ones being leverage for their next purchase.  For example, if you have been looking to “upgrade” or buy something more fitting for your family, you could sell your current home and use the net profits as a down…

In a previous blog post, we talked about equity, which is the difference between the current market value of your property and the amount of money owed on the same property.  Homes in College Station had an average sales price of just over $160,000 in 2012.  Last year’s average sales price was just under $220,000.  If you had purchased your house in 2012 or earlier, that means you could have at least 30% equity in your home… that’s enough for a down payment on your next purchase!

 

Our market is cyclical and has truly heated up & taken off, there isn’t a better time to sell in Bryan/College Station!  Maybe you’ve been thinking about upsizing for your growing family?  Or your family has grown up and you have too much house?  There’s a lot of…

As we move further into 2017, projections of our Bryan-College Station market continue to show a rising trend.  If you bought your home in 2009, you could have at least 30% equity in your home!  That’s more than enough for a full down payment on your next purchase – you can read more about affecting your equity in this post.   

 

Not only are our market values increasing, we are also in the hottest part of our year!  If you’ve been on the fence about selling your home, I can answer any questions that are holding you back.  We have buyers that are ready & approved to purchase but not enough properties to meet that demand. 

 

Why choose me and TM5 Properties to list your home?  For starters, we are the #1 independent residential real…

Here at TM5 Properties, our goal last year was to finish 2016 as the #1 Independent Residential Real Estate Brokerage in Bryan/College Station… and we did it! We didn’t want to lose our momentum at the start of the new year, so we kept our sights on staying #1.  The votes are in (so to speak) and we did it again!  After the first quarter of 2017, we are still the #1 Independent Real Estate Brokerage in Aggieland.

 

Personally, I have greatly exceeded my goal for our first quarter in total sales volume.  Some highlights so far are a closing on a 153-acre property & my Horse Haven listing being sold within the first 24 hours it was listed.  Not only that, but TM5 Properties has reached over 6,000 Facebook followers – more than any other…
