“You’re going to love HomeKeepr’s new features! You can now store your appliance manuals and purchase receipts all in the app. Clean out the junk drawer. It’s easy too. No typing… Just take pictures using the HomeKeepr app and you’re on your way.”
Joi & Guy McKinney, REALTORS®

All a homeowner has to do is snap a picture of the product ID tag of their refrigerator, washer, oven, or any other major appliance, and we’ll do the rest. The Homekeepr app will match the right manual to their appliance’s model number, and upload it directly into their HomeKeepr profile. They can even upload a receipt for the appliance to their account as well, and bingo! A complete record is at our client’s fingertips.

Why our clients love this?
Because the first thing most homeowners do when they move in is LOSE their appliance manuals and receipts. That means they can’t get service under their warranty. But as your trusty and innovative REALTORS® at Triple Crown Realty…we want to help our clients settle into their new homes and make things easier for them.Having manuals and warranties at your fingertips makes it easy to call for service… or figure out how to change that pesky part when necessary.

It’s a win for you, and you’re able to find whatever you need next time you’re in a jam and need information.

The feature is only available at HomeKeepr for Homeowners… so make sure to sign in as a Homeowner now!

2018 Dallas News Article

Tax Code Section 23.23(a) sets a limit on the amount of annual increase to the appraised value of a residence homestead to not exceed the lesser of:

  • the market value of the property; or
  • the sum of:
    • 10 percent of the appraised value of the property for last year;
    • the appraised value of the property for last year; and
    • the market value of all new improvements to the property.

Tax Code Section 23.23(e) defines a new improvement as an improvement to a residence homestead made after the most recent appraisal of the property that increases its market value and was not included in the appraised value of the property for the preceding tax year. It does not include repairs to or ordinary maintenance of an existing structure, the grounds or another feature of the property. Tax Code Section 23.23(f) states that a replacement structure for one that was rendered uninhabitable or unusable by a casualty or by wind or water damage is also not considered a new improvement.

Sellers and a Home Warranty

Do You Need A Home Warranty if Selling?

HOME WARRANTY PLANS can go a long way to alleviate some risks and concerns.  For a modest price, the seller may decide to provide to the buyer a one year warranty covering specified heating, plumbing, electrical, water heater or appliance breakdowns.  Coverage under most plans commences at closing.  In all cases, there are important limitations and exclusions (example:  appliances/systems must be operative at commencement of coverage). 

Home warranty plans help to ease the buyers concerns as to having a major component go out right after buying a pre-owned home depending on the age of the components. This will help to compete with the new construction in the area too.

Ask us at here at Triple Crown Realty how we can sign you up for your FREE “listing coverage” while your home is under contract with us. This service will cover certain things and is no cost to our sellers except the “minimal trip charge”!

One of the many values we bring to our sellers. Please ask us so we can explain in detail!

Getting Ready for those Professional Photos

First impressions matter! Buyers usually are searching online as the first thing they do when thinking about buying a home. In order to market your property we feel professional photography is critical. We market the house to “Showcase It” in the best light and maximize an interest to buyers. The info provided is important as it has some basic instructions and expectations from the professional photographers. We try to be at all photo shoots to help our clients prepare for the day about 1hr prior to the scheduled professional photographer. Please be ready for little tweaks and suggestions. We are trying to appeal to the masses and because we are with buyers daily, we really know what their comments are regarding homes.

The most important thing to remember is that 1st impression. Remove the personal, avoid clutter and make it sparkle both inside & out! Click here to see ways to prepare your house to sell. These are also things to help the home show well when agents bring buyers to the home.

Please read the following info in preparation of photo shoot:

Photo Shoot Checklist

Photographers will NOT be able to move furniture, clean countertops or assist in moving any personal property due to insurance limitations. Please follow this photo checklist as closely as possible before scheduled appointment. Everything should be clean & sparkling…indoor & outdoor fixtures, counters, stovetops and a quick vacuum makes photos really nice. 


  • Begin by turning on all lights throughout the house, including fireplaces if available.  If you are missing lightbulbs, please replace them.  It is best to use “warm” lights vs. “cold” blue fluorescents.  There are “warm” fluorescents available
  • Turn off all ceiling fans throughout the house.
  • Minimize clutter in living areas, on end tables, and other areas. (this includes Big Picture frames, phones, alarm clocks, lamp cords, etc.) Pictures on the wall can remain.
  • Remove small throw rugs and doormats/bathroom mats, large area rugs may remain in place.
  • Remove and store small kitchen appliances and other items on kitchen countertops, as well as bathroom countertops. 

♛ We advise clearing kitchen countertops as much as possible ♛

  • If you have candles or small plants, the photographer may utilize these in photos around the house.  The homeowner will be responsible for lighting any candles and/or fireplace(s).  The photographers and agents will not light these items due to insurance limitations. A better alternative is the melting pots for scented wax or Glade plug-ins in a citrus, coffee or vanilla scent. These are great for giving the home a wonderful aroma.
  • Remove toiletries from shower/tub and clear bathroom countertops.
  • All toilet lids down
  • Please keep all pets restrained on a leash or in a kennel or offsite during your appointment.


  • Yard signs (for sale signs, home security signs, school signs, etc.) will not be in the photos.
  • Store water hoses and other miscellaneous garden items out of sight.
  • Remove any toys, cleaning supplies, miscellaneous items that are not directly related to the exterior area, as well as any trash or recycling bins.
  • Arrange outdoor furniture as you would like it photographed.  if there is a patio umbrella please open it.
  • Sweep/remove leaves and other items in patio/driveway areas if possible.
  • Please clear toys and leaves or debris out of pool if any.  If there is a pool sweep or pool cleaner please remove.  The photographer will not “blue” the water or “clean” debris from pools, so please make sure pool is clean prior to appointment.

♛ Be prepared at least 1 hour before photographer plans to  arrive
