After the Contract is Executed – Inspections


After a contract to sell a home is executed, the buyer will have a set number of days to complete inspections.  During this period the seller and buyer will have the opportunity to negotiate what repairs will be completed by the seller prior to the close date.  Seller’s often times believe that they are capable of doing these repairs.  The truth of the matter is, the seller should not do these repairs unless they are licensed to do the repair.  The repair is supposed to be warranted and have receipts that can be given to the buyer at closing. Unless the seller wants to come back multiple times to complete the repair, it is wise to hire a professional.

If you are a seller and are preparing for a buyer inspection, check out this page:

Is the Housing Market in North Dallas Hot or What? Check out Prestwyck in McKinney!


As Real Estate agents in the North Dallas area we are asked daily, “How’s the market?”  This morning I woke up to an incredible news story on NBCDFW.  In McKinney, Texas, about 30 miles north of Dallas, approximately a dozen families camped out over night to be the first families to purchase lots where they hope to build their future homes in a community named Prestwyck.  This is truthfully an unknown phenomena in North Dallas.  The developer expects the lots to sell out in 24 hours.

We moved to Texas, January 1, 2006.  We can not remember a time where the housing market was this hot.  We left the crazy Southern California housing market at the end of 2005  in search of  a better education for our kids (at the time ages 3 and 7), more affordable housing, more integrated communities and a well-educated workforce.  These same factors are drawing people from all over the nation to move to Dallas and the surrounding communities.  As almost 10 year Texans, we understand the reasons people relocate and the common factor is “a better life for me and my family.”

Prestwyck is located on the South Side of 380 near Coit Road.  The community is zoned for  Prosper Schools.  It is located between the North Dallas Tollway and 75.   If you want to build in this community, you better head out there today or you may miss the opportunity.  If you need help with anything real estate, give us a call.
