Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program with Wylie 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). Existing home owners or potential home buyers can remodel and update their homes without having a higher cost second lien because of this 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).         This loan program has many advan...

  Market Report for Wylie TX January 2014 The market is staying steady with average and median sales increasing from 2013 to 2014. Days on Market is lower from January 2013 and the percentage of listing sales price is up! This is all good news to sellers. If you have been on the fence about selling or moving up, now would be a great time to sell your home and buy another one! Interest rates are still low and most of my customers are closing under 5%.

Sick of renting and want to buy again after you Short Sold your home? I helped alot of homeowners sell their homes with the Short Sale process over the last 5 years. Things happened and they were no longer able to make their house payments. It's okay, we all have a "past"!  I know most of them moved into an apartment, even though they weren't thrilled about it. So if this is you, please consider trying to buy a home again. The Federal Housing Administration made revisions to their guidelines. They have a "Back to Work" program that will allow certain borrowers a home loan after just one year of a foreclosure or short sale. Granted they will want to see a good year of payment history and a good credit score.  I am sure you are excited to own again and have learned your lesson! It makes m...

  Instructions for Filing your Homestead Exemption in North Texas   Since you have recently acquired a primary residence, now is the time of year for you to file a homestead exemption application.  The homestead exemption will reduce the taxable value of your property, limit the size of increases to the taxable value each year and provide the protection of Texas’ generous homestead laws!      To qualify for a homestead exemption, you must have owned the property as of January 1 of the year you are applying. Your homestead exemption applies to your primary residence only and you cannot claim a homestead exemption on any other property.    The easiest way to fill out an exemption form is to log onto your county’s website and locate your property using their “Property Search” feature.  Aft...
