Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program with Grapevine TX FHA 203k Loans.     The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offers a special government loan program that a lot of people are not aware of. This FHA loan program allows the buyer or existing owner of a home to do significant amounts of remodeling or updating to their home without a higher cost second lien.         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 loan program has many advantages but ...

  From the time I was a little girl, my father taught me the value of home maintenance. My dad was a Landlord. Every summer I helped my dad with home maintenance projects. I could never understand why every time a tenant left there was 10 times or more work that needed to be done before the new tenant could move in.    I've been a home owner for more than 35 years and a REALTOR® for more than 11 years. If there's one thing I know for certain, with home ownership comes responsibility and accountability. For better or worse, until SOLD (or repossessed) do you part.   Below are my own personal quotes as a result of life long learning. I was inspired to write these quotes as a result of a home I saw under construction this morning on August 21, 2014.     This home is located in the Historic...
