You have been looking online at Spring Texas homes for sale for months. You narrowed down the possibilities and battled the heat and viewed your top choices. Now, you believe you have found “the one”. The home that stands out from all the rest of the homes. The home you can visualize living in and your family growing up in.
But instead of heading directly to your real estate agent’s office, you decide you want to think it over. Understandable. It’s a big purchase. Besides the Spring Texas real estate market is slow. And the house has already been on the market for 147 days so what’s a few more days. Although your rationale for delaying is logical, it may end up in costing you money or the house. How?
Today, your house … the house that is “the one” is available. But what we don’t know is how many other buyers consider this house to be “the one” for them. They may have viewed it yesterday or last week and they too may have needed some time to think it over. Now they are done with their thinking and are ready to put in an offer on the house.
Since you decided to “think it over”, you just put yourself into a multiple offer situation. Sellers LOVE mulitiple offers because it typically translates into one buyer outbidding the other buyer. The sellers receive more money while it costs the buyers more money.
If you are okay with the idea that “thinking it over” may cost you more money for the house, then ask yourself if you are willing to take the risk of losing the Spring Texas house. Sometimes it is not all about the money to the sellers. The other buyer may have offered terms that are more attractive to the sellers, such as no contingencies, or a quicker close, or more earnest money. Terms that are important to the sellers causing them to choose the other offer instead of your offer.
Once you find the Spring Texas house that is “the one”, don’t delay. Delays can cost you money or worse the house.

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
