When you’re interested in buying a Spring Texas house, do you wonder how much the sellers paid for it? Or maybe you wonder how much the sellers mortgage is? This is what I call “good to know” information. But that’s all it is.
How much a seller paid for his house or how much he owes on his mortgage has absolutely no bearing on the value of the house or what the seller would be willing to sell his house for. It is “good to know” information and that’s all.
What if the seller paid $200,000 for his Spring Texas house in July of 2010 and now he has it listed for $180,000. Knowing he paid $200,000 tells you he’s losing money on the sale of the house. It doesn’t tell you if $180,000 is a good price or if he will take less than $180,000. It’s “good to know” information and that’s all.
What if the seller paid cash for the house and he doesn’t have a mortgage. Since the seller doesn’t owe anything on the house, does that mean you want the house for “FREE”? Knowing whether the seller has a mortgage on the house is “good to know” information and that’s all.
What you really want to know is what have other similiar Spring Texas homes located in the same subdivision or in the same area recently sold for. Your Realtor can provide you with recent sold data. It is this information that is better than “good to know” information. Recent sold data is what your offer price and the eventual agreed upon sales price should be based upon.
Jill made me feel like we were genuinely in the BEST of hands for the duration of our home sale!... read moreJill made me feel like we were genuinely in the BEST of hands for the duration of our home sale! She is absolutely incredible at her job and we never had to worry about anything because the second we begun to wonder about anything, she already had an email or text on the way to put our minds to rest. :)
I really cannot thank her enough for the amazing job she did with selling my first house. I always felt like she made my husband and I a high priority and I am beyond elated with the impeccable work she did for us to sell our home at full asking price--and SO quickly! Her marketing strategy was for our home was brilliant, the photos she took were exquisite, and her patience with me during this new process was really admirable. I asked many, many questions since I had not sold a home before and I was humbled by the amount of generous time she spent solely answering my lengthy list of questions.
Thank you Jill. You are the BEST realtor. We are so grateful for you! read less
