Early this year DR Horton headed into College Station with a splash.  Signs went up and promotions abounded.  Their first subdivision they built in was called Dove Crossing.  On December 19th KBTX, one of our local TV stations ran a story about DR Horton and how they have attempted, largely unsuc...

The College Station City Council is contemplating installing red light cameras and held a forum with Terry Childers, deputy city manager on November 20.  Research is ongoing and an ordinance making running red lights a civil penalty if reported by camera is being considered.  If the civil penalty...

The Aggies won their last game, so I'll use this opportunity to brag about our sports here in Brazos Valley.  With A&M right here we have excellent opportunities for sports watching for all sports fans!  College Station itself has a population of around 82K, but our Kyle Field, home of Aggie foot...

College Station's very beginning highlights what happens when a community is built around a college, instead of a college being put in a town.  The railroad throught the area was completed in 1860 and in 1871 the site was chosen for A&M.  College Station didn't come into being until after the cam...

Our city, and many of the surround areas, were named for very utilitarian purposes.  College Station was named as such because it was the train station to drop off the students for Texas A&M.  Wellborn (the area we live in) was named because it had a tank (a well outide of TX) that provided water...

Bryan/College Station has been cited as one of the lowest priced markets in the country and that designation has lead many interested parties to contact me to discuss the benefits of moving to the area.  There are almost too many to mention!  First is B/CS's location.  We are located almost at th...

I moved to College Station around 8 years ago.  I was a Texas tranplant already and had been in Houston for many a sweltering summer (around 18) when the call came in.  We were going to move to College Station.  I knew nothing about College Station other than they weren't "tea sippers" (whatever ...

I noticed a very interesting trend when I was looking at the MLS statistics for the months of September and October, 2006.  In looking at solds versus actives many market sectors, including, increasingly the lower end market, has a five month supply or more of homes at current levels.  Interestin...

One of the places that an agent can make the most difference is with a first time homebuyer.  I really enjoy working with them because (though negotiating is one of my FAVORITE things) you can really get to make a huge difference in someones life at this point.  From finding the right lender who ...

I've had more investors this year entering the market than I've ever had before.  I'm very excited too because my investors all have good scenarios working for them.  This year I've sold 11 homes to investors and 10 are rented out for at least 1% per month of what was paid for them.  The 11th is ...

When I first got into real estate a great mentor told me "you don't make money selling a home, you make money buying it".  How true that is!  When a buyer is looking for a home one of the first thoughts on either their, or their agents minds should be...what about resale?  Many of my clients teas...

We hear quite a bit of information about "the housing bubble" as if it were a constant in the universe.  Many markets, including mine, aren't facing a bubble at all, but instead reaching newer highs than ever.  While many markets aound the nation were increasing unbelievably our market instead pe...

I talk to many people who are waiting to save a downpayment before investing in their first home.  With the wide variety of 100% loan programs out there currently this isn't necessary, or most times even desirable!  While some people seem to think that financing the entire purchase is risky and t...
