When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
That home is zoned to the Lamar Consolidated School District. The listing is currently stating that the zoned Elementary is Hutchinson. I suggest checking the School District to verify that information.... more
Well right now rates are relatively low and will likely raise in the future once the Feds start tapering. So it would be wise to consider the rates of today versus the rates that might be in the future. It seems that you would likely qualify for an FHA loan with that down payment and income. An FHA loan only requires 3.5% down with a down payment. There are still other parts of your finances that need to be looked at such as your credit, assets, employment, etc. So the best thing for you to do is to speak with a lender like myself directly to see if you can qualify and how much you can qualify for. I would be glad to speak with you to help you get started on a loan. If you have any further questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me.

Both communities are very nice. It will be a personal preference as to where you prefer to live. I recommend that you drive the neighborhoods. Neither of the neighborhoods have a high crime reputation, but no one can guarantee that there won't be any. Crime is everywhere. By driving a neighborhood during the week-end you can see the neighbors and form your own opinion of the area. Check out schools, amenities and drive time for your lifestyle. If you would like to look at some homes, I will be happy to help you.... more
Wow. Loaded question. Fort Bend County has the reputation of being one of the greatest places to reside in the country. What do you plan on doing when you retire, i.e., golf, travel, charity, or shop? Katy, Sugar Land, Richmond, and Fulshear are great communities-each having distinct differences that attract different residents. Let me know what your plans are and I can make recommendations. My wife and I have lived in Fort Bend County for over 30 years - would not have it any other way.... more
Many burglaries? That is a general question that only you can answer. I think your question is based on your standards of safe. No area within the USA is without crime and your standard will be different from mine or anyone else. You can find crime, racial diversity, and all types of great information for the area online easily. Just use the great almighty Google and search Fort Bend County Crime Statistics to start. You can also research the neighborhoods in detail either through my own website below or the Houston Association of Realtors website.
For me personally Richmond has some really nice areas and great people. I have a house listed in Summer Lakes at the moment that is beautiful and the family is one of the nicest I have ever met. I would not have any problem living in Richmond around highway 59.... more
My father-in-law has a 1965 GTO convertible in his garage.....so here are my two cents:
Heavy duty air compressor
Heavy duty large steel tool chest
A hydrolic car lift
Refridgerator/pop machine dispenser with plenty of cold beer =)
Hope that helps!... more

Sales within the last six months have been slow in Canyon Gate but recently several homes have gone under contract to close. You might be able to get a price break on homes that have been on the market for some time, it just depends on the sellers and their circumstances. It is true that you will more than likely pay more for a comparable home in Greatwood, New Territory and Riverpark. There is no way to predict the future of a neighborhood, but Canyon Gate at the Brazos has many lovely homes on the market at this time and it may be an opportunity to purchase a home at a lower market price. If you are not working with a realtor and would like to contact me directly I would be happy to represent you in the purchase of a property.
This home is still available for rent. As far as crime goes you can visit CrimeReports.com to get the latest information on any activity in the neughborhood or around the address. Personally, I lived in the area for about 4 years with two small children, and never ran into any issues. Hope this helps...let me know if you'd like to visit the property. Talk to you soon...V... more
You are almost always better off with a VA loan if you can get one.
Not only do VAs offer 100% financing (conforming loan limit for VA loans is $417,000 in most parts of the country so it is likely that at 330K you qualify for 100%) but you also are not required to pay monthly mortgage insurance premiums.
There are the VA funding fees that have to be paid which varies based on the type of military service you performed and also varies based on if this is first time loan or second/third... loan. Yes, you can take out VA loans more that one time! If you are a qualifying disabled Vet then you will never pay any VA origination fees.
Did you mean tax rate or interest rate at 3.25? You really need the interest rate, tax rate (annual or monthly stated) and homeowners insurance rate as well as your VA service level to calculate the expected payment. Can you supply those details?... more
We manage over 100 rentals so please pay attention. :)
The rental price is driven not by zipcode but by size, quality, upgrades, and location. Think of renting and buying a house like buying a car. Each is determined by the individual car and it's competition. Without additional info it is impossible to give an answer.... more
