I've worked as an apartment locator in Dallas for over a decade, so over the years I've picked up a few tips and tricks guaranteed to make sure you get not only the lowest price on a new place, but that you also don't get any nasty surprises when you move in. So, read on if you're ready to take the apartment hunting bull by the proverbial horns.

1. DON'T go looking for an apartment on a weekend but DO plan your day


This is the most common time for people to go and look at a new place, and you'll often end up waiting for hours at popular properties, which means you get to see less places. There are even unscrupulous leasing agents who will intentionally drag out your time at each property so you can't go and see their competitor. They'll say…

Realtors vs. Robots - The Rise of the Drone

If you'd told me back in 2005 when I first got into Real Estate that I would soon be flying a drone over my clients' homes while capturing live video on a portable tablet, I'd have called you crazy. A genius maybe, but definitely crazy. Yet here we are today. We now have the power to capture images that until recently were unobtainable to anybody without a pilot's license. To tell the true story of a home and its neighborhood. To give buyers from across the world a vivid, accurate portrait of a city they've never seen, and a house they have yet to call home.



We have the power to assist the inspectors we work with on a daily basis…

Let's face it. The property market in Dallas is tight right now, with buyer bidding agains bidder and a lot of sellers laughing all the way to the bank. So what can you do, aside from over paying for your new home, to ensure that you don't lose your dream home to another buyer?

1. Make sure you are pre-approved for your loan!

It may seem like common sense, but you'd be suprised how many buyers are wasting time looking at homes, when they should be sorting out their finances, grooming their credit score and working on getting a sparkling-clean pre-approval from a reputable mortgage company. Looking at homes, while it seems backwards, should be the LAST thing on your list.

2. Get pre-approved by the RIGHT mortgage company

How to Take Better Real Estate Photos

Real estate photos are one of the most important tools for generating interest in your home. Home sales begin on the web and research has shown that the more pictures that accompany your listing, the more viewings your property will get. Think of it like a job interview: would you show up with uncombed hair, rumpled clothes and nothing interesting to say? No, of course you wouldn't, you'd do your best to show yourself in your best light. Likewise, you shouldn't take a lackadaisical approach to real estate photos. As they say, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

Below are a few things you can do to ensure that you take the best photos possible when listing your home:
