Our Spring Texas real estate contracts have many dates listed in them with the most important date of them all being the date of the contract itself. The contract date (a.k.a. effective date) is the starting point for all the other actions in the contract that are specified to be done in X days. The contract date is also the date the real estate contract becomes binding upon both buyers and sellers.
We have this saying when its comes to Spring Texas real estate transactions “verbal means nothing and written means everything”. What this means is when your agent says the sellers have accepted your proposed terms it doesn’t mean you are in contract on the house. Why? because verbal means nothing. I know you are probably thinking the sellers gave you their word and that should be worth something. In the days of horse trading, a person’s word was worth something.

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
