Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using Fort Worth TX FHA 203k Loans.     Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- 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.         The loan program does not allow for “luxury items” which are defined as items like a swimming pool or hot tub, etc. But you can repaint, replace flooring, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, add wallpaper, replace appliances – even add a room to an existing structure (which can significantly add to value as you increase the square footage of your home).    ...

When you move to Texas it's good to know about the dirt.  It will save you lots of headaches when it comes to your foundation, your garden or your horses. In a state with more than 1300 types of soils, each with a specific set of properties- it's no wonder homeowners are confused about how to manage their soil that is suitable for plants, animals and their foundations.  Here in Texas we have blackland clay, sandy loam, sand, yellow clay, and alluvial soil just to name a few.  It's best not to guess about your foundation soil.  Have it tested by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension program  http://soiltesting.tamu.edu.   Or, the Texas Plant and Soil Lab  http://texasplantandsoillab.com/soil-testing.asp Soils even in residential yards will vary greatly.  I think I have 4 different types on soil ...

Home Inspection:  Properly Bonding CSST Properly bonding and grounding of a Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (CSST) system may reduce the risk of damage and fire from a lightning strike. Lightning is a highly destructive force.  Even a nearby lightning strike that does not strike a structure directly can cause systems in the structure to become electrically energized. Differences in potential between systems may cause damage to the CSST, including holes. Bonding and grounding reduces the risk of arcing and other related damage. While inspecting gas lines, a home inspector should confirm that the CSST gas system has been properly bonded to the grounding electrode system of the premises. The gas piping system shall be considered to be direct-bonded when permanently and directly connected...

If you want to make sure that your Fort Worth home for sale is truly ready for an open house, try answering the questions below.   1.       Have you removed unnecessary personal touches in your home? Most of the time, it’s hard for sellers to depersonalize their homes. Attachments to things that you value around the house may hinder you from determining what should be removed and what should stay. Always try to look at things in the buyer’s perspective. If you were the buyer, would it be easy ...

"Sooooo, how is the market?" I love it when people ask me that question. And they ask it all the time! The answer is always the same for me... at first. "Good!" First, it depends if you're buying or selling. On the buying side, mortgage interest rates are still at, and have been my entire career (10 years), all-time historical lows. Reform (the good kind) prevents a heck of a lot more crap lending from happening as compared to 10 years ago. And things are pretty affordable around here (even with recent sales price hikes) as compared to the rest of the nation. "Good" could be an understatement. Things are really pretty freaking awesome! On the seller side it's even better than freaking awesome. Sellers are getting multiple offers in days. Enough said. What qualifies me to answer this "Ho...
