You just moved in to your new Spring TX home and now you are ready to personalize it. But wait before you do you better check your subdivision’s deed restrictions. Deed restrictions are enforced by your HOA and are meant to protect yours and your neighbors Spring TX property values.
If you want to make exterior changes, additions, improvements and/or alternations to your property they must first be submitted in writing and approved by the HOA’s Architectural Control Committee (ACC). If you do not receive ACC approval before personalizing your property and later the ACC determines your enhancement is in violation of the deed restrictions, you will be required to bring your property back into compliance. The bad news is the expense to bring your property back into compliance will be borne by you.
The majority of Spring Texas subdivisions have deed restrictions. Some of the items that you may find identified in the HOA’s deed restrictions has being prohibited are wall and window A/C units, colored staining or colored varnishing of fences, and fences over a certain defined height.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
