Buying a home these days may seem like a full-contact sport, especially if you are one of the many newcomers moving to Texas. For a Chicago couple, an agent with Allie Beth Allman & Associates recently made 11 offers before closing on a $1.1 million home in Dallas, sight unseen, for about $100,000 over the list price.
“Our agents are getting a workout,” said Deb Borrell, director of relocation services. “We need more sellers.”
In this environment, buyers need an expert to guide them through the bidding process for a home and to show them private listings available only on an exclusive list for Allman agents.
Allman agents recommend you start your search with these homes.
