Funding in the past year has been a challenge. Although there have traditionally been a number of sources for commercial loans, adverse economic conditions have combined to limit credit:  The major problem in the past several years has been the collapse of the CMBS (commercial mortgage backed securities) market accompanied by significantly tighter credit conditions by banks. In the past decade, regional commercial banks significantly increased their exposure to commercial real estate, with a number of loans subsequently entering default. This has resulted in a reduced level of credit availability, both as a result of the need to protect the bank's capital base as well as in response to regulatory requirements.

After 3 years of being on and off the market, the former Memorial Hermann Fort Bend Hospital has finally sold and will be torn down and redeveloped as it cleared the final hurdles for the city approval. Memorial Hermann first put the Missouri City land on the market in June 2005 as part of the shift to a new Sugar Land hospital in 2006. SDI Realty Management Inc. of Houston purchased the 20 acre site, located at Highway 6 and FM 1092, on June 9. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the property previously listed for $13.7 million. The land consists of the 64,273-square-foot former hospital and a 39,121-square-foot professional office building. This was the last available corner tract at the intersection, with other retail developments on the other three corners.

Missouri City has completed of the final steps required in its attempt to finally acquire the Quail Valley Country Club by using eminent domain. A special 3 member appointed commission set the price at $3.1 million on tuesday. The club owners may still appeal the fair marke value, which is expected. City Council scheduled an executive meeting for Thursday to consider authorizing the purchase and funds to do so.  This would allow the city to takeover the 390-acre parcel, which would be turned into a city-run golf course and park. City officials decided to try to purchase the property because of concerns that the club owners would shut down the site and redevelop the area into apartment complexes. City officials and many residents feared, property values in the city would plummet as a res...

FBISD entered into a contract to buy 77 acres of land on which to build Fort Bend Independent School District's 11th high school. The land is being purchased from HW Sienna L.P. Hillwood Development of Dallas. At a May 22 emergency board meeting they cancelled the district's contract with Hillwood Development. At a June 9 meeting they voted to approve an amended agreement. The search for land in the southeast quadrant of the district began after the redistricting process from 2006. Redistricting showed the growth of the district and necessity for another high school in the area. This was necessary to relieve severe overcrowding at Hightower and Elkins, and accommodate all the new growth in Sienna Plantation S. The projected opening date for the new high school campus is August 2010. FB...

Once the real-estate market starts to rebound, investing in property will become a more appealing idea either as a career or a great side job. Like any other endeavor: there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. Don't expect to get rich in a hurry, no matter what they say on TV infomercials, and don't let the dog eat your homework. Those are among the common goofs of novice investors. Bankrate interviewed full-time real-estate investors and with professionals, such as bankers, to identify the 10 types of traps into which real-estate investors most often fall. 1. Planning as you go Andy Heller author of "Buy Even Lower: The Regular People's Guide to Real Estate Riches," says the lack of a plan is the biggest mistake he sees new investors make. They buy a house because they think they ...

FBISD trustees canceled a $3.4 million purchase contract with Hillwood Development for 77 acres south of Sienna Plantation for a new high school and a future elementary campus. Instead the new high school, which the district wants to open in August 2010, now would be built on a 65-acre site southeast of FM 521 and Texas 6. Trustees in February approved the purchase of 110 acres comprised of three tracts of 65, 30 and 15 acres - for $5.3 million at a price of $1.1 per square foot from Hannover Estates. The district may reopen negotiations with Hillwood in the near future as the district still has a need for a new elementary campus and a new middle school for the Sienna Plantation area when the subdivision is built out. In addition to the new high school, the Hannover site would also acco...
