This question has irked me for so long! Why do banks tell people they are qualified up to a certain purchase price and that's it? No loan programs work like that... they all have "debt to income ratio" requirements which exact monthly payments fit into, and then those exact maximum monthly payments can fit into several price ranges! Also, it depends program by program! This is the biggest thing I can tell about how we are different -- we go the extra step to show them the maximum payments they can qualify for with EACH loan program, along with tips for how to expand that (like paying off specific debt items) to qualify for higher if needed, and build customized mortgage calculators to help show.

For example. John

During this time of year, I often get asked about what’s happening in the Austin and Cedar Park real estate market. 

As a courtesy, I wanted to offer you something you may not know even exists… a copy of my “off-market” listings report.

Every year, there are properties that do not sell during the agreed upon timeframe established between the seller and their agent. 

When this happens, they are called “expired” or “withdrawn” listings. These “off-market” listings represent the Hidden Housing Market.

These home owners may still want to sell their home, but it’s currently not listed on the market.

As a service for my customers, I research these homes to see if they fit my clients’ criteria and reach out to them to see if they are still
