Will the expiration of the home buyers tax credit negatively affect the real estate market? Will renters want to stay renters? Is now still a good time to buy a home? What’s next for the Spring Texas real estate market?
According to a April online studycommissioned by Prudential Real Estate of 800 random consumers, consumers are still optimistic about the real estate market with 65% stating the expiration of the home buyers tax credits will have little or no impact on them.

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
