What a Houston landlord need to know about having a pet in their rental property

By | Energy Corridor, Fulshear, Houston, Landlord, Memorial, Pasadena, Pearland, Property Management, ProTalk, Richmond, Spring, Sugar Land, Tenant, Westchase | No Comments

Hello landlords I have a scenario for you, let’s say you are managing your own rental property and after a few weeks of vacancy you find the perfect tenants. You feel confident about renting your home to them but they say hey, by the way, I have a pet which is a german shepherd. You can meet my dog and you’ll see how well trained and smart the adult german shepherd is.

Would you still rent the property to the tenants?

If you know about dogs you’ll know this dog most probably won’t cause any damages. You also can charge a pet fee, pet deposit and monthly pet rent that seems to be a good deal right?

Here lies the problem. Did you know that your home owner’s insurance can cancel your policy  because this dog lives on the property?

So are you going to deny the qualified applicants just because of their dog?

If your answer was yes. Hold on!! We have a solution for that.

Contact me and let’s discuss these situations in further detail.

 Here at Your Dream Real Estate we take the screening process to the next level by qualifying the clients and their animals (service animals included).

Do I need a Realtor when buying a new construction?

By | Buyers, Houston, Katy, Memorial, Pasadena, Pearland, Richmond, Spring, Sugar Land, Westchase | No Comments

Some buyers do not believe in using a Realtor services to buy a new construction. We are here to discuss some important things that you should know.

The Builder’s representative will take care of me.
If you are thinking that the builder’s salesperson will take care of everything, you may consider some facts. The salesperson represents the builder’s interest. Builders use their own contract which may not be easy to understand. The salesperson may not highlight pros & cons of a particular model home.A Realtor is able to back you up and navigate you through this preliminary stage and assist you with your purchase with confidence. Most importantly, our service is free of charge when a buyer hire us.
How frustrating it may be if you are a first time home buyer and your home is being built from the ground up! Did you know there are 11 stages from start to finish the home, A good Realtor will keep you updated at every stage.

Another reason why hiring a Realtor to help you is our special relationship with them. Reputable builders love to work with realtors. They realize the value of working with Realtors. We are a good source of business for them. We are the first to know about their new products, promotions,and any other updates. They understand our expectations and the importance of caring for our clients.

I can negotiate myself
Some say they can negotiate with the builder and there is no need for a Realtor. We say why not have extra leverage with having a Realtor on your side. Our negotiation with builders are done behind the scenes and on your behalf. Builders most of the time accept our terms & give us concessions we ask for. We must also mention that good builders will not discount the price of the house by the commission that is owed to realtors.That is under their marketing budget which can not offset the price of the home you are buying.

You don’t know what you don’t know.
Realtors have gone through lots of homes & transactions. We look at things from a different angle in a home you are buying. Home buying gets emotional at times and we do our best to keep you focus on features that are most desirable & make economic sense. We want you to receive the maximum out of your investment.

And last but not least, the big prize is here.
Here is the best part for having a Realtor on your team. Some of us out there will reward you by sharing a portion of our commission toward your closing cost when is needed. We become your own concierge exclusively working for you.

Whether you are in Houston, Katy, Richmond, Fulshear, Sugar Land, Missouri City, The Woodlands, Spring, Humble, Pasadena, Pearland or Fresno contact us to get more details and get the home buying started.
