You’ve decided you want to build a home instead of purchasing one that is already built. Do you know where to begin?

First item on the list is to call me! That’s right, you can contact me and I can walk you through the process and connect you with several reputable Builders in the Bryan/College Station area. I can schedule meetings with the different Builders, help with choosing a Builder, and even partake in the design process if the buyer requests that. I can be as involved as the buyer would like!

You’re probably thinking, “How much does that cost?” It doesn’t cost the buyer anything! Most all Builders will pay Realtors a referral fee.

So before you decide to move forward on building your home without representation from a Realtor, give me a

 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:

Today kicks off the first post of my Neighborhood Series. In this blog series, I will highlight the great neighborhoods that the Bryan-College Station area has to offer! First up is Eastgate in College Station. Eastgate is a great community close to campus that caters to both students and families!

Students will be drawn to Eastgate because of its amazing location. Getting to class is just a quick 5-minute bike, 10-minute walk, or 2-minute bus ride. Students and their parents also love this area because of the wide range of housing options. Newer college student specific homes are always going up, but Eastgate is also full of charming historic homes too! Families may even want to consider purchasing one of the many duplex floor

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
