Negotiate Leveraging Status of Fredericksburg Real Estate Market

Posted in: Resources
A number of variables can be negotiated when buying Fredericksburg real estate.  These include points, closing costs, condition of properties, and the sales price.  The final cost to Fredericksburg home buyers may end up much lower than the list price.  Some of our Fredericksburg Texas real estate agents take pride in their negotiation skills.  At the negotiation table, buyers' agents seek to lower the costs for their clients.

Although sellers and their agents consider a number of market conditions when setting the list price, is not set in stone.  Smaller communities such as the Fredericksburg Texas home market have fewer properties to compare then do metropolitan areas such as Dallas-Fort Worth.  Consequently, it is more difficult to pinpoint the exact value of a specific property.

Sage Texas Real Estate Facilitates Fredericksburg Home-Buying

Posted in: Client Testimonials
"We begin looking for a home with Sage Texas Real Estate and Dale in January of 2013.  It is the best home-buying experience that we have had.  Dale walked us step by step through the process and helped us get the home we wanted for what we could afford.  He also valued our time and kept us on track to get the perfect place for us.  

"I really enjoyed and learned a lot during the looking and buying process.  Dale has over 40 years of banking and real estate experience and he shared that experience and expertise from our first conversation, to our first offer, to the closing desk.  If we ever get to the point that we want to buy another house, Dale Cook and Sage Texas Real Estate will be the only folks that handle that for us."

Highly Recommended Realtor in Texas Hill Country

"Having worked with many different realtors on multiple transactions over the years, we have a very good appreciation for when a Realtor does a good job.  Dale Cook listened to what we wanted, and really understood what our objectives were.  He located several excellent properties for us to view, and we ended up actually buying the first one that we viewed.  It ticked all of the boxes and we are thrilled to have purchased our new home.

"In addition to understanding the buyer's objectives, Dale was also one of the most thorough and professional individuals that we've ever worked with.  His contract negotiation ability is phenomenal, and he does a great job getting the right deal for his client. Most importantly though Dale is a very respectful and decent human being who treats people the right way.  We would highly recommend Dale to anyone seeking a property in the Texas Hill Country."

Fredericksburg Texas Realtor Review

Reliability, Trustworthiness, and Dedication

"Overused words in an increasingly difficult business arena: Real Estate.  But these attributes are a necessity when you are navigating the (most likely) largest purchase of your life.  Having bought and sold over 13 houses across the country, we have seen enough to make this statement:  You can rest easy knowing Dale is protecting every aspect of your Real Estate transaction."

Recommended Realtor for Fredericksburg Texas Real Estate

"Dale is very professional and a pleasure to work with.  He takes all the time you need to answer any questions you may have.  I found that Dale has a very refreshing and frank honesty in giving both the pros and the cons on a particular property.  He has a deep knowledge of the market and has personally seen and assessed all of the current listings.  He can recite accurate facts about a wide selection of properties from memory.  I have known him for a short time, but I would trust him to be my business partner if we should wish to invest in a property together.  I highly recommend Dale Cook as the Realtor to use for the Hill Country."
