Considering my landlord lowered our rent to keep us in katy, it's not as h9t as when we moved here. I have 3 homes on my street that have been for sale for.months
Rents are reducing as well as the home price. This is 8n a very nice area right by I 10 to the south. Real estate agents around here are not honest. They keep blowing smoke. I almost bought, but started reading on my own and realized that the o and g jobs were going to halt price increases so I'm sticking to renting for another 10 months.... more
Thanks for sharing. I live in 77007 and know several other renters here as well. I do a lot of leasing including leasing to renters that are new to Houston, so I would be glad to help you. My email is below if you want to send me your max. rent price and then I can give you some more details on what's available. This zip code is a very desirable area so when something hits the market for lease, it is often snatched up quickly, so it's good to be aware of what's available ASAP.
Hope to hear from you soon :-)

As someone who has a large book of new construction business the answer is yes. A lot of what we have in the works is information that not even other Realtors have access to yet, but I am happy to share with you if you're interested in purchasing something new. I live in the Washington Corridor (also 77007) so I'm also aware of what is happening here in the area that you won't be able to find online. Please feel free to call (or email) and I can give you the scoop on what's up and coming nearby.
Thanks & Good luck!
I live nearby in the Washington Corridor. I would recommend Leash Yu with Nationwide (713) 688 8881 but I also have a recommendation for Farmers and one with Allstate if you have a particular preference. Hope that helps and good luck!
Hi! If I understand your question correctly then the answer is unfortunately usually yes. You will most likely have to pay at least a portion up front. Generally they ask for half, but some choices the builder may ask for the full amount up front if it is very taste specific or something they think could make it harder to sell the unit to someone else if you're unable to close for some reason.
BUT - if you are working with an agent who represents you exclusively then they can (and should!) negotiate with the builder / developer for the upgrades you're interested in to try and include some with the asking price or reduce the cost of them. Anything you add as an upgrade after the contract is in place will be at the builder's standard terms for upgrades.
If you have any more questions or need a REALTOR to represent you, please give me a call.

You can buy with PMI and later refi to get rid of PMI once you are below 80% (which would be off of a conservative and easily justifiable by similar comps appraisal value). In other words, banks would believe a conservative appraisal that would confirm the value beyond any "reasonable doubt".
I don't recommend getting a loan on top of a loan. You may not even get such a loan (this would be subject to qualifying) and you have to disclose it to your 1st mortgage lender. And - the loan upon loan could be so stressful - it would destroy your pleasure of having your own home.
You can also save up funds to pay off the principal to get you out of the PMI zone, once you are ready.
If you like this option, read your note before signing it, to check that this is allowed by your lender. Make sure there is no pre-payment penalty.
Hope this helps,
