No one can predict that. People with kids tend to want to be settled by the time school starts in the fall so you're competing in the highest volume season. In most areas, sales tend to slow down towards the end of the year so if you can delay until closer to the end of year holidays, you might find the market a bit less competitive.

The thing is, though, the current conditions can't change until inventory levels rise and that's not an easy thing to fix. The way I see it is this: You've got your "starter home people" who are ready to upgrade to something larger. They can't find homes because the "something larger" folks don't want to sell until they find their upgrades. They can't find houses either so they aren't selling. So we just get stuck in this cycle of not having enough people actively selling because they have nowhere else to go.

Hello Betsy,
Best is if you talk to a mortgage broker and get pre-approved. If not, you at least know where you stand and can work forward to buy something in the future. Good luck!

It will depend on what you determine "normal" to be. I would estimate approximately 1.25 to 1.75 hrs if you are considering leaving League City at 7am and leaving Bellaire at 5pm. There are so many factors that influence your drive time--traffic, weather, accidents and construction delays. ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
Your buyer broker can easily look up that info in MLS. However if you want to ask, it is not appropriate to ask. As far as low ball offers, in this market with a shortage of homes for sale, low ball offers are all but dead. You may see some on homes that need the most work and offers that are cash with no contingencies. However unless the owner must sell immediately, a more reasonable offer is needed to buy the property. ... more

Annette Lawrence answered:
In some cases it depends on the real estate you intend to buy.
For example, many banks, when selling their foreclosures will not allow the listing agent to represent both sides. The bank recognizes a great potential exists for which they can be taken advantage. They choose the listing agent and the buyers agent be different, and some even from different offices.

Of course YOU can choose to use the listing agent in the purchase.
Please be aware, the listing agent represents the seller, not the buyer..
It is possible you have more resources than the banks and know more than the listing agent.

However, prevailing wisdom suggests you should have an agent with a duty to represent your best interests and direct you away from decisions harmful to you.

Some want to believe they will save money using the same agent. If you think you know more than the bank and the listing agent, then pursing the illusion of saving is all the permission you need.

Repeating, you don't need two agents to buy and sell real estate, but prevailing wisdom and practice establish an agent whose sole purpose is the represent the buyer to be the best policy to follow.

First time buyers require an experienced and patient agent who is willing to put the necessary time into explaining and assisting first time buyers. It is really important to make a great first purchase because it will affect your 2nd and 3rd purchases down the road.

I would be happy to send you a list of client experience ratings from my previous clients, many of which were first time buyers.

Feel free to contact me anytime.

Candia Lundry answered:
There are only 3 subdivisions with a PID. Centerpoint, Victory Lakes and Magnolia Creek are the only PID that I am aware. They do pay out and some are more than half way paid off and sometimes the home owners have paid the entire PID and no longer will have a fee.
The PID is your friend because it goes away. A MUD usually never goes away.

Charlese Pointer answered:
Yes, as mentioned in previous comments your first step would be to meet with a mortgage adviser or loan officer to get pre-qualified. You don't go on a hunting trip without being prepared, the same as in Real Estate you want to be prepared before you embark on your house hunt. As of right now in the Houston and surrounding areas there is low inventory which is an advantage for Sellers and record low interest rates for Buyers with makes Real Estate appealing to both at the moment. With the credit score you have provided I guarantee you can get approved for a loan to buy a home that would be ideal for you. I'll leave a link below for someone you can contact to help get your Home buying process started.

Yes there are. Contact the county tax assessor directly for detailed information. They are typically pretty helpful and can tell you what you would save. I have called them several times on my clients behalf.

Hope this helps.

I know you asked your question in 2009, but I would like to answer the question since I found the the answer and this community is still developing.

The subdivision for the Hallmark Oak is The Cove at Todville located in Seabrook, TX. Beazer Homes is still building new homes in that community.

I don't know why the listing states that it is located in League City. It is located in Seabrook with the zip code 77586

Gail Bevill, Real Estate Pro in League City, TX

Gail Bevill answered:
Thank you for asking this question, because it is important to include the price of the insurance, including windstorm and flood, when determining your budget and overall housing costs.
Within League City, rates will vary due to a number of factors related to the property , including the type of property (single family home or condominium or town home), age and condition of the property, whether it is located in a flood zone or not, the location of the property in proximity to the Bay or Gulf, the type of construction, the age and type of the roof, and also by factors not related to the property itself, such as the owner's credit rating, the insurance company selected, and whether the policyholder carries multiple lines with the insurance company.
Once you select a home, check rates with the insurance company who carries your auto, health, life, current homeowner's insurance or personal liability policies.
I live in League City, have been with my current homeowner's insurance company for many years and carry multiple lines with the same insurer, have never had a claim, and pay approximately $3,400 per year for a twelve year old home, which is not located in a flood zone.
Principal, interest, taxes, insurance, home owner association fees, and maintenance all contribute to the cost of owning and maintaining a home, in League City, Texas or anywhere you choose to purchase, and your are wise to be looking at your current budget, and your future budget, as it relates to your total housing costs.
