This is REALTOR® Safety Week in Texas    Please talk to your agents about their safety and ask them to have an emergency plan of action.   We tell our agents to call when they arrive on a property and give someone at the office a car license number. I have talked on my phone while opening a home, saying the address to the person on the other end. The potential buyer hears me say the address and how long I will be there.  Arrive early at the home you will be showing. If you don't feel comfortable when your potential buyer pulls up , tell them you have to reschedule, an emergency has come up!  Ask them to meet you at your office. If they don't show up at the office then your instincts probably were right...Don't be afraid of losing a sale if you are not comfortable with a potential buyer....

If a homeowner has been turned down for a loan modification, they can still avoid foreclosure by working with a trained agent on a Short Sale. It's a great alternative to going through foreclosure. The homeowner avoids the severe hit on their credit, the neighborhood has one less vacant home, nearby homes don't lose as much value, and the lender can save around 30% over selling a foreclosure. I am helping 4 families right now with the short sale process and I closed several short sales this last year. If you are in a home and you cannot make your payments due to unforseen circumstances please call me or Russell. I am experienced in the Short Sale process. Everything you tell me is confidential. I will help you get your home sold and you wont have to go through foreclosure. I found this ...

  The $8000.00 tax credit is still available until December 1st of this year!  You must be a first time homebuyer who has not owned a home within the last 3 years and must satisfy certain income limits.  What's a tax credit? It is a credit given when you file your 2009 taxes, for example,   if you owe $1000.00 on your taxes next year and you bought a home in 2009, Uncle Sam will deduct the $1000.00 you owe and give you a check for the remainder $7000.00.  Wow! Now I could do some serious shopping with that!!   Renters , consider this! If you are paying rent at $1,500 per month and your landlord increases your payment by a modest 5% each year, you would wind up paying just about $100,000 over a 5-year period! Worse yet, after forking over $100,000, you still would have nothing to show fo...

I went to my daughters Wylie East Highschool JV Volleyball tournament this weekend, which normally is dealt with some anticipation of the event, will we win? who will be eliminated? This tournament however had GREAT anticipation because we were playing Wylie High School! The new rival, the team we were supposed to be! Yes folks, our once small town with ONE football team has grown. No longer do I recognize everyone at Berkshire's or when I pick my daughter up at the Pirate Stadium.  All the parents sitting in the stand had mixed emotions, because now our daughters were competing against each other !  We still sat next to each other , yelling for our girls, but I think eventually that we will become divided too.  The real distress. for me anyway, was when the WHS girls broke huddle with ...
