Curious about home sales in your neighborhood?

I’m frequently asked about current real estate conditions and sales throughout the city.

Whether you are:

  • Renting and thinking about buying,
  • Homeowners that are considering selling,
  • Prospective investors looking to see what’s out there, or
  • Just curious about the sales price of their neighbors’ homes…

People want to know what their home (and their neighbors’ homes) are worth!  Since Texas is a non-disclosure state, transaction sales prices are not disclosure to the public.  Sale prices are not required to be submitted to the county tax office.

Because of this, sites like Zillow and Trulia aren’t always accurate (Zillow reports a median error rate of 4.5%).  Zillow even states on their website that they are unable to compute accuracy of their Zestimate (they use the Tax assesor’s value in Texas).

Buyer Representation Services

Are you looking for a new place to live?  Searching for a new home can be a daunting process!  Calling different agents and apartment communities, sending tons of e-mails, and being placed on hold gets old after a while!  Wouldn’t it be great if you could have ONE point of contact to manage all of this for you?  Well, you can!

Apartment Locating and Buyer Representation Services are FREE services provided by licensed real estate sales agents.  As professionals, we work for YOU and we are paid by apartment communities, landlords, management companies, and sellers.  We’ll do all the work!  You just have to let us know what your preferences are, and if you have any “hiccups” that may impede the application process.

Most landlords and apartment communities will run your credit, background, and verify your employment and rental history.  Expect to provide the following:

  • 4-8 weeks of paystubs
  • Credit reports/background checks (the owner will generally run them)
  • Employment references for the past 2+ years
  • Landlord information for the past 1-3 years

Keep in mind, qualifications vary between different owners, landlords, and management companies.  

To ensure you’re working with a Licensed Agent, you should verify license holder information for any Licensed Real Estate Sales Agents or Brokers on the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) website by searching by their name or license number.
