As a Spring Texas buyer’s agent, I am asked a lot of questions about the houses I am showing. The two questions that I am asked the most frequently are “How many days has the house been on the market?” and “Why are they selling?”.
“How many days as the house been on the market?” Is a quick and easy question for me to answer. I just access the Houston MLS and it shows the date the house was listed.
The question “Why are they selling?” is much more difficult for me to answer. Since I don’t represent the sellers, I am not privy to why they are selling.
If the house is a foreclosure or a short sale or if the house is owned by a builder or the house is owned by a relocation company, the reason why they are selling is because they have an asset that they no longer have a need for.
If the house is owned by whom I will refer to as “individuals”, I may never be able to identify their reason for selling. Because “individuals” may be selling their Spring Texas home for any one of the following reasons:
Since I have been helping people buy homes in the Spring Texas area for the last 10 years, I know the answers to a lot of questions. But one question that I still may not know the answer to is “Why are they selling?”

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
