    Great article on The women of Cook Children’s 


    March is Women’s History Month and we decided to take a look back at the huge role women have played in establishing Cook Children’s. The beginning can be traced back to 1918 when the Fort Worth Free Baby Clinic was opened where the Fort Worth Zoo presently sits.

    To continue reading about Cook Children’s history, visit our blog. We also take a look back at two community groups that have continued to be a vital part of Cook Children’s to this day, Jewel Charity Ball and The Woman’s Board.Image

    Don’t be fooled by these 3 selling myths 

    Thought these were some really good points…

    First-time sellers beware: there are lots of myths out there about the right way to sell your home. While your Texas REALTOR® is your first line of defense against making these mistakes, here are three common selling myths busted:

    Myth: I bought a house, so I know what it’s like to go through a real estate transaction. I’ll sell my home on my own and save money by not using a real estate agent.
    Truth: Texas REALTORS® don’t work for free, but that’s because they provide valuable assistance through the home-selling process. Selling isn’t the same as buying, and a Texas REALTOR® can help you reduce your risk of making a costly selling mistake. Plus, they help clients with the ins and outs of property transactions every day and are plugged into your local housing market. If you DIY, that means you’ll have to spend time marketing your home adequately, be available to show the home yourself, and navigate your way through a tricky transaction alone.

    Myth: If I price my home higher than market value, I’m leaving room for negotiations.
    Truth: Buyers have no idea you’re employing this strategy and won’t understand why your price is too high. Many won’t even view your home, much less put in an offer. When your home is priced improperly, it’s more likely to sit on the market, making potential buyers think there’s something wrong it. When that happens, you’ll probably wind up with lower offers than if you had priced the home fairly at the start.

    Myth: All I need to do is mow the lawn and hide my stuff in a closet and my home will be ready to show.
    Truth: Is a mowed lawn and hidden clutter all it takes to attract you to a home? It won’t work for potential buyers of your property, either. Your Texas REALTOR® might go through your home with you and identify areas that could use some sprucing up to make your home more appealing. Or, he or she might recommend working with a home stager to make the best impression. Be open to those suggestions … your Texas REALTOR® knows what makes a property sell quickly for top dollar.Image
