Good morning,

As one of the Asians who call Wimberley home, I am to let you know that there is no concentrated Vietnamese population in and around this area. Nonetheless, I wish you let you know that our beautiful town of Wimberley is a wonderful mix of community. Wimberley is a most social and active town that I am proud calling it my home. At this time, we have Singaporean, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. I have yet met a Vietnamese other than a Cambodian family who ran a coffee/donut shop in the weekdays.

If you are interested to venture out to a beautiful community that has land, creeks and river and hills and valleys, please feel free to contact me. I am in real estate since 2005 and loving every minutes of it. I look forward an opportunity meeting you in Wimberley.

Happy New Year to you and yours,

Judy Carey, Realtor

Hi Myron,

It is only about 2.9 miles (6 minutes) from 72 Woodcreek to Visitor Center/Brookshire Brother grocery store. Although Woodcreek has its own city hall, they both share same zip code 78676.

Hope this helps,

Jennifer,
Have you been contacted by the List Agent for New Owner? That is the person you need to contact to see if you are eligible. If you are renting the home and the landlord is the one being foreclosed on then you still might have that option. If you are the former owner in most cases you are not eligible for CFK. The only way to find out for sure is to contact the listing broker for the new owner be it Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. ... more

That's a pretty tall order there. Finding a 1bd under $750 is pretty difficult. You would have better luck getting into a 4 bd, but the issue there is most apartments wont do a lease that short. Your best bet is to try and get a sublet from a current resident ... more

an update, not an answer:
Sold in 10 days! We made it move in ready with a little room for new owner's to make simple changes if they desire. We had the money to put into it and what concerned us was selling it quickly more than return on investment, especially since we could not put it on the market at peak due to unforseen illness of my mother.
One of the buyers is a real estate agent so I think they can see beyond wainscotting and have vision. We removed wainscotting in one bedroom and it turned out to be a simple inexpensive thing. We repainted the overly wood master bath to soften it.
Nothing like a great agent, quality professional staging and hard work. We meticulously maintained our home over the years with the oldest item being a 2007 water heater and A/C system. The adage about keeping it up as you go paid off. Fresh paint everywhere within the last 3 years and repainted some rooms to be more neutral. Meticulous means landscaping as well.You can't take out cedar and landscape in a year. Landscaping is an ongoing thing if you want it mature enough for the new homeowner's to not have to mess with keeping it established. I left the quartz countertops which are the #1 recommended surface for a cook and family (heat, stains, scratch resistant). We did freshen up all woodwork and most paint with an honest to goodness real painter, not just a crew of people that ended up being painters but actual trained painters. They are rare and expensive but oh the sigh of relief to use professionals. We put in high quality carpet and pad. We spent $800 on cleaning tile. I guess we put in about 10K cash into it to prep. Everything looked fantastic. If you are listing your home for over 500K you want commensurate quality in your updates and materials. What came back for repair after inspection turned out to NOT be actual problems but having them looked at does make for peace of mind. I left our home just as I would want a home to be - meticulously clean and maintained, even while empty. And I kept records of every single thing ever done for 18 years: every receipt; every manual; every project. I hope the new family will enjoy the property and community as much as we did all those years.
I think what sold this was the location and the super condition. I just can't imagine anyone having to put money into this. They can use their money for decorating their new home.
Now on to the gardening and remodel of our CA home. Another adventure.
