Dallas Real Estate – Homes For Sale In Dallas, TX

Use a REALTOR® When Buying a Home in Dallas

A real estate agent can help you understand everything you need to know when exploring homes for sale in Dallas, TX.

Not all real estate licensees are the same; only those who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR “®” trademark on their business cards and other marketing and sales literature.

REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reported that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments of most people’s lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $250,000. If you had a $250,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a certified professional accountant? If you had a $250,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be wise to work with a professional REALTOR® when you are buying a home.

If you’re still not convinced of the value of a REALTOR® when looking at home for sale in Dallas, TX, here are some more benefits to working with one:

    1. Your REALTOR® can help you determine your buying power – that is, your financial reserves plus your borrowing capacity. If you give a REALTOR® some basic information about your available savings, income and current debt, he or she can refer you to lenders best qualified to help you. Most lenders – banks and mortgage companies – offer limited choices.
    1. Your REALTOR® has many resources to assist you in your home search. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.
    1. Your REALTOR® can assist you in the selection process by providing objective information about each property. Agents who are REALTORS® have access to a variety of informational resources. REALTORS® can provide local community information on utilities, zoning, schools, etc. There are two things you’ll want to know: First, will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?
    1. Your REALTOR® can help you with negotiations and inspections. There are many negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or appliances. The purchase agreement should allow time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your agent can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required to buy house in Dallas.
    1. Your REALTOR® provides due diligence during the property evaluation. Depending on the area and property, this could include inspections for termites, dry rot, asbestos, faulty structure, roof condition, septic tank and well tests, just to name a few. Your REALTOR® can assist you in finding qualified responsible professionals to do most of these investigations and provide you with written reports. You will also want to see a preliminary report on the property title. Title indicates ownership of property and can be mired in confusing status of past owners or rights of access. The title to most properties will have some limitations; for example, easements (access rights) for utilities. Your REALTOR®, title search company or attorney can help you resolve issues that might cause problems at a later date.
    1. Your REALTOR® can help you understand different financing options and identify qualified lenders to buy house in Dallas.

Dallas REALTORS can guide you through the closing process and make sure everything flows together smoothly.

What People Are Saying

  • Our experience with Bill Nelson and his team was great. We met with 4 different Realtors to initiate the process of selling our house to then buy our new home and from the moment we met with him we knew the choice to make. He confidently explained the process and the plan to follow and showcased his expertise on the housing market. He manages a team of diligent realtors, we were pleased to work with Emma Lindsey. She was dedicated, diligent, patient and helped us through the entire process until the very end, it was delightful to work with her!
    It is a different market out there between the pandemic and the high demand vs low inventory, it can be very frustrating and disappointing but Team Nelson made it a positive experience. They negotiated an extended stay to accommodate our home search once we sold our current house. We trusted Bill's advise with our new house choices and offers in a very competitive market where multiple offers were made on the first day of showings, definitely not pushy but he advised us for our best interest! That is something we highly value and will always be grateful for.
    If you are selling and buying a home and you are not using Tim Nelson/Your Home Free you are throwing money away!

    My main praise for Your Home Free is that they know the Flower Mound market and were able to get our house sold when an out of town realtor could not. They were also patient to help us find our new home when the market was pretty crazy.

  • Kevin was the ultimate expert and everything you could look for in a DFW real estate agent. He was extremely up to date on listings, areas of interest, and most importantly proper pricing in the zip codes in which I was searching. Along with his real estate knowledge, Kevin is just an all around great guy and easy to work with. Response times were immediate and follow up just as timely. I will undoubtably use Kevin and his team with all my future home purchases!
