Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using College Station TX FHA 203k Rehab Loans.Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA (a department within HUD). A buyer or existing home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their existing home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program.However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Although, you can repaint, replace flooring and appliances, add a room to an existing structure (which can add to value tremendously as you increase the square feet of your home) as well as remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms.This l...

TEN homes SOLD in the Pebble Creek subdivision during the month of AUGUST 2019! Prices ranged from $350,000 for a lovely 4 bedroom/3 bathroom home on .3 acres up to $500,000 for a spacious 4 bedroom/3.5 bath situated on .7 acres with close proximity to the golf course!   One thing I love about Pebble Creek are the generous-sized lots each home possesses as well as the mature trees which provide shade and add charm/character. The average sales price/sq. ft. this month was $139/sq. ft. The highest SP/SF = $157--which is more in keeping with the Pebble Creek past SOLDS.  To find out how much your Pebble Creek home could expect to bring in the current market, call me!

And the skies are not cloudy all day! ;)   I was hosting an open house at this lovely Woodcreek home (1403 Sussex Dr.) when I saw a doe skip nonchalantly up the neighbors' driveway!  I had seen deer earlier that morning in the neighborhood when I was placing my OPEN HOUSE signs, but what a surprise to see this afternoon visitor, my first open house guest!    This updated 4 bedroom/3.5 bath home on a wooded cul-de-sac lot  (.53 acres per the county) is priced at $419,900!

Hugely popular with buyers, the Castle Rock subdivision in south College Station has a limited number of homes for sale right now! There are only THREE one-story homes available, and my listing on 4250 Rocky Rhodes is the newest, nicest (imo), and lowest price/sq. ft.  Seller has moved out of town and is highly motivated. SELLER SAYS SELL IT! Some garage fronts contain wood slats, but this is beautiful, low-maintenance BRICK! Wood floors throughout most of the living areas (family room, dining room, study, entryway and hallways). Gorgeous island kitchen INCLUDES stainless steel refrigerator! Slow-close cabinets and drawers, undermount sink and more! Lovely back yard with sprinkler system and covered back patio!
