I've been in Katy for 25+ years and all three of our daughters have seen Dr. Cade Nelms. His office is at Christus St. Catherine. Call and talk with his office 281-395-2244. I know the choice of a doctor is a very personal matter so just like when looking for a good Real Estate agent you need to talk to a few and see if they are a good fit for you. Good Luck! ... more

3 is three, it doesn't seem to be difficult to understand, however if there are exceptions then you need to ask the city or the county since they have the power to enforce the rules they make or wish to have you comply to! ... more

Hi Bridgette, it depends on if the home is vacant or not. Many times when a home is listed for lease, the current renters are nearing the end of their lease or the home is already vacant. If the home is vacant, obviously the landlord will make it ready just as soon as possible, because their goal is to get the home leased. Let us know if we may be of service...just give us a call at 281-846-5513.

I live in 77493, Old town Katy, and have lived here since 1983. Love it here. We've had a couple of things stolen out of cars parked in the driveway over the years, but nothing major on my street. There is a crime everywhere ya know and everyone has their own defintion of "safe"! I see some have suggested websites to check crime stats - and you can actually go into the Katy Police Station on Franz, just a couple of blocks east of Katyland and talked to officers there. Very nice and friendly people who will be happy to help.

Good luck - call if I can help.

Commissions are like any paycheck.... the total percentage is gross and we have to consider the net. With real estate in our area of Katy, the seller lists with his agent and agrees to pay a commission % of the sales price (which could be anything agreed to between agent and seller). The seller's agent in that agreement agrees to surrender a portion of that (many times half of the gross total) to the agent that represents the buyer to the property as compensation. This is also set out specifically in the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service) as an incentive to show the property and to avoid any conflict regarding payment at closing. (In fact, most MLS rules requires that cooperative compensation be specific.) After the split, the agents will then pay a portion to their Brokerage according to their independent contractual agreements with same (and this could be anywhere from zero to half of the entire amount).This fee compensates the broker for advertising, office space, marketing, training, etc. At that point, the agent must pay good old Uncle Sam and any personal office expenses he/she may have to run her real estate business (assistants, copies, marketing, flyers, virtual tours, Open House expenses, etc.) I think it is so important for sellers to understand that the succesful listing and marketing (not to mention time spent negotiating on their behalf and shepherding a contract to closing) takes time, money and effort on behalf of both agents and if they are a good at what they do... it is well worth it. ... more
