I saw this photo and thought it was so pretty, I had to share it. We have had a terrible drought here in North Texas but I am thankful to say it has been raining steady in North Texas for the last two days! Our lakes are very low, we need the rain! I usually hate to see summer go, because I don't like cold weather, but this year I am glad summer is over! Happy Fall Ya'll !

There is a Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using Wylie Texas FHA 203K Home Loans.     The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offers a special government loan program that a lot of people are not aware of. 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.         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.         One of the biggest advantages to this ...

Wylie, TX presently has 2 high schools, Wylie and Wylie East. As the community continues to grow and expand there may be a 3rd high school in the future. For now the competition is fierce between the 2 high schools. Friday night at the Wylie stadium located just behind Wylie High the Wylie Pirates battled it out with Wylie East Raiders. It was a close game but Wylie East Raiders came up with the win. The final score was Wylie East Raiders, 35 and Wylie Pirates, 28. Are you considering moving to the Wylie ISD area? There's much to see and learn about Wylie, TX. For more information you can contact me by email or find Homes for sale in the Wylie School District here.   Wylie - the city between the lakes!

  What are the steps to short sale my home?   This is a very common question with a lengthy answer! Don't let this deter you from short selling your home if you have a financial hardship. I will walk you through the process and keep a detailed timeline for you.       Eligibility Requirements: To successfully complete a short sale under the FHA short sale program, you must meet the following requirements: You cannot list the property with or sell it to anyone with whom they are related or have a close personal or business relationship.  In legal terms, it must be an "arm's-length" transaction. Your mortgage must be in default, on the date the short sale transaction closes. If you have additional liens against the property it must be released. A lien holder who demands a payment to releas...

You can also contact a mortgage lender for specific questions.   I just left the Collin County Association Realtor meeting.

   How soon can I buy another home if I sold a home in a Short Sale? In a short sale, the lender approves the sale of a house to a new buyer but typically receives less than the balance owed. This is a very good question asked to me ALL the time. There were recently changes in policy that will allow the wait time period for purchasing another home after a short sale significantly shorter: Fannie Mae: you may be able to qualify for a mortgage in as little as two years FHA:  in as little as a year after losing your home instead of the current three years. You will need to show that your delinquency problem was caused by a 
20 percent or greater drop in income that continued for at least six months, and that you are now back to work, paying bills on time and earning enough to qualify for a...

Welcome Home Wylie, Texas Welcome home...to Wylie, Texas. Wylie, Texas is a city worth taking a look at if you are searching for a new place to call home.Wylie, Texas has a population of 41,427 as of the 2010 census. What’s interesting is Wylie has grown 174%, yes, 174% since the 2000 census. The population in 2000 was 15,132. So Wylie is a growing city with a small town feel. The city itself was incorporated in 1887 and was named after Colonel W. D. Wylie, a Santa Fe Railroad official and Civil War veteran. Mostly in Collin County, Wylie now has branched out in Dallas and Rockwall counties also. Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard are both in close vicinity. A couple more interesting tidbits about Wylie’s history is that onions were the town’s cash crop in the 1930’s and 40’s. “Wide Awake ...

I thought you might like a little history about Labor Day and how it came about. The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883.  In 1884 the first Monday in September was selected as the holiday, as originally proposed, and the Central Labor Union urged similar organizations in other cities to follow the example of New York and celebrate a "workingmen's holiday" on that date. The idea spread with the growth of labor organizations, and in 1885 Labor Day was celebrated in many industrial centers of the country.
