USDA Loans are mortgages for Homes that are found in Rural areas.  Oddly enough, some homes in Richmond are considered Rural.  The Tara Sub Division is one of these areas.  Here are the highlights of a USDA loanfor: You will not need a down payment.  That's right 0%!!!  FHA loans require a down payment of 3.5% and a conventional can require 5% or more.  And the seller can pay all or some of your closing costs.  This would allow you to get in the home with the least amount of money possible. You will NOT have any monthly mortgage insurance.  This will give you an even lower monthly mortgage payment then a conventional loan or a FHA loan. USDA loan is a government backed loan.  To qualify for a USDA loan you must meet the income requirements and the home must fall in the designated Rural ...

If you are Law Enforcement Officer, Teacher, Firefighter or an Emergency Medical Technician(EMT) you can buy a HUD foreclosed home for 50% off of the appraised value.  This program is called the Good Neighbor Next Door Program.  The 50% discount is like a 2nd mortgage that is forgiven after 3yrs.  There are no payments like an normal mortgage, but if you sell the home before the 3yrs you will incur costs.  For more information on this check out: 50% down payment.  For these professionals, the home must fall in the area that you work.  Meaning a teacher must buy a home that falls in the jurisdiction that they teach in.  Not every HUD home qualifies for this program.  To find out which homes are available follow these simple directions: Go to: www.SouthwestAlliance.com , Then click on: vi...

Currently the Fort Bend County Central Appraisal District is being sued by several Richmond residents.  They accuse the appraisal district of not considering foreclosures when appraising the properties.  By not using foreclosures they are not getting a true value to tax.  Since foreclosures many times sell for less then a resale home, these foreclosure could decrease the tax value of many residents homes.     Attorney David Showalter had this to say "FBCAD has repeatedly failed to comply with the statute which provides that the chief appraiser may not exclude from consideration the value of the other residential property in the same neighborhood as the residence homestead by being appraised and would otherwise be considered in appraising the residence homestead because the other residen...
