Fair Housing Awareness

Fair Housing Awareness in a Strong Sellers Market

Next up is the third and final video in our series on navigating a strong seller’s market where we discuss those buyer “love letters” that sometimes accompany contracts in a multiple offer situation.
 
Key takeaways:
– They can bring legal trouble to the seller
– Selling agents should let buying agents know that they will not accept them
– There are similar implications that sellers need to be aware of in regards to home surveillance systems in the home that are recording during showings

What You Need to Know About MUDS

What is a MUD?

In real estate, the acronym MUD stands for a Municipal Utility District. These districts are set up to help finance infrastructure of your water, your water supply, your sewer, and your drainage in an area. A MUD is a taxing entity for the state that allows property owners to pay for the infrastructure over a longer period of time.

Listen in as Blake Bennett with Texas Agrilife Extension Service explains what a MUD is, what a MUD does, and how it benefits you as a homeowner.

Terminations-and-Defaults

Key Points About Terminations and Defaults

A default occurs when a party to the contract doesn’t do something that they have agreed to do under the contract.  Examples can include not providing an existing survey, not depositing the earnest money or option fee, or not coming to closing on the closing date.  A termination occurs when one party notifies the other party that they are terminating the contract due to a default or some other reason. This video with Republic Title’s Janet Allen and Scott Rooker covers the following key points to know about Terminations and Defaults:

  • What is the difference between a default and a termination?
  • Once the title company has receive a termination from one side, can they release the earnest money?
  • What happens after a party makes a demand for the earnest money?
  • What happens if there is a dispute?
