You need to contact an Insurance agent direct. Realtor would not have that info.

I don't believe so. You could call Metro Bus in Houston and see if there is one of their buses that goes to Hobby.

I don't believe so. With over 1,000 homes in all price ranges, there is a home that fits most people's needs. There is a tremendous "pride of ownership" in South Shore as you call tell by the nicely manicured lawns and well kept houses. The South Shore Harbour golf course, recently bought out by Canongate, has had some upgrades and renovations, making this 27 hole course a really nice facility. Around the corner is plenty of shopping, for instance in the Kroger Signature grocery store shopping center. There are several man-made lakes in the various sections and with the golf course and marina down the road, I believe South Shore is a beautiful place to live! ... more

League City has a lot of safe areas, but some of the newest and safest would have to be Tuscan Lakes and Mar Bella. They also are zoned to the education village offering great schools for all grade levels.

I am a Realtor with RE/MAX if I can be of further assistance please let me know. I can be reached easily at 713-480-3165.

South Shore has seen a decrease in Days on Market. There is no longer new construction in the subdivision for sellers to compete against within the subdivision.
In the past 6 monhs the average days on market was about 97 with a 97% list price/sell price ratio of the asking price.

In the prior 6 months (Sept 2011-March 2012) the average days on market of the sold properties was about 149 days with a 97% list price/sell price ratio.
The market is has changed . The sellers are standing firmer for their price. We are seeing less and less foreclosures and short sales. The 70 homes available indicates about 5 months of available inventory.

In a nutshell the market is still in the buyers favor but has changed considerably in that the buyer will have to compete for the nicer and well priced homes. In many instances we are getting multiple offers. Some sellers are still making some concessions in price or closing cost contributions.

It is still a great time to buy with great OPPORTUNITY. We have a fabulous subdivision with reasonable and affordable prices and taxes and record low interest rates. The savy buyers are taking the opportunity with glee.
I hope this helped....Candia

The South Shore Country Club, gated community is an excellent area to live in and there are numerous good buys in there, but prices are beginning to creep back up, don't wait too long! There is no problem driving in and out of the gates for residents, either. ... more

Tim Moore answered:
Never seen it but a rule of thumb is that if people don't come to see it they have been turned off by something they see online or in the listing -- price, the pictures, the location, the description . If they come and then don't make offers the rule of thumb is that something at the house turns them off -- condition, area, etc. ... more

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
If the house is in very good condition, clutter free, and has had showings but no offers, you need to lower your price. You are getting a fair amount of showings so you are close but no offers indicates a price reduction is needed. If you will do that, I am pretty sure you will have an offer in no time! ... more

Things are moving in Mar Bella. There have been 32 sales so far in 2012, 24 homes are pending sale, and there are 34 active listings. Prices range from $95-97/SF for sales in 2012, and the active and pending listings are priced closer to $100/SF overall. There's a good mix of new construction and resales. The schools are great and it's an attractive community. Let me know if you have specific questions I can address.

Good Luck,
Ruth Ann

Your question appears subjective.
Suggest you get the facts and the feel for each subdivision and decide for yourself.

Most agents will be happy to assit you in selling your home. But we will ask you to let us list exclusively. I know that it can be hard for sellers because you do have to pay a fee for the listing agent and the selling agent. But with this ever changing market an agent is very important. Besides the contracts there are home inspections and termite moisture reports........ So it is important to understand the contracts so that you are clear as to what your responsibilities are as a seller; We are there for your best interest.

The lender who you use to pull your credit looks at three different credit scores from three different agencies. They usually use the middle score when they are processing the loan. There are more factors that are involved in approving one for credit. I work and live in the League City area and would love the opportunity to be of assistance to you if you are looking for an agent to help you in the home buying process.

Jim Simms answered:
FHA's minimum is 3.5%, VA is zero, and some areas offer down payment assistance. I would follow the advice of my Realtor, if you are not working with one that is the first step, hook up with one you trust. Second step it to get preapproved for any financing you may need, if any. Have your Realtor introduce you to the loan officer they trust the most. Gather all of the support documents that will be needed to apply for a loan and meet with the LO face-to-face, have them walk you through the process and options available, good luck, home this helps, ... more

It's hard to say if you're upside down without knowing how much you owe. I would be happy to help you figure it out based on your specific situation.

Here are the trends for Countryside. On a price per square foot basis, the neighborhood averages have definitely gone down over the past few years.

Year to Date: 43 closed sales @ $70.61/SF or $68.54/SF after adjustments for repairs and seller contribution. The average size was 1695SF. ($119,683 adjusted to $116,180)
2010: 46 closed sales @ $72.73/SF or $71.18/SF adjusted. Average size was 1687SF ($122,701 adjusted to $120,080)

UTMB employees contract vans for transportation and also just use carpooling in general. Carpool world will help you, and I would certainly ask admissions in Galveston what medium employees and students use to hookup for pooling. There are tons of them all over, so good luck!

I am not an expert in finance or mortgages, but I do not think you can do that without selling it to her directly and her taking the home with her own loan and recorded in her name, otherwise he and her will always be responsible for the previous mortgage. I can refer you to someone that can help.

not is showing that Centerpointe is not a Masterplanned Community. Some of the newest construction is showing that this community is a PID... Not a PUD or MUD.

Bill Eckler answered:
A PUD is a "planned unit development." This is a classification that allows flexibility in the design of a subdivision. Planned Unit Developments generally set an overall density limit for the entire subdivision, allowing the homes to be arranged in a configuration that allows for an area of open space to be enjoyed by residents. ... more
