The Woodlands is a master planned community. The Woodlands does not have it's own zip code so some homes in The Woodlands show up as Spring, some show up as Conroe and some show up as Tomball. Do you have a REALTOR in The Woodlands area. If so, they will be able to verify that you are looking at the correct homes. If you need a local REALTOR you can reach me at 281-216-5012 or ... more

Lisa Roth answered:
I would bring reference letters with you. If you currently rent, than a letter from your Landlord. You can check on for leases and some will have lease with an option or owner financing. That would be a good place to start. HAR is our Multiple Listing Service for homes in the Houston and surrounding areas. If you know what community you want to live in just search the zip codes in that community for lease homes. ... more

There are so many variables like is the car also used for personal use etc. I would ask a CPA to get the definitive last word. After all they will have to stand behind what they tell you in case you are ever audited.

Best of luck to your wife. Real Estate is a rewarding career.

Don Tepper answered:
Buying a car will hurt your chances. Talk to a loan officer or mortgage broker, who can tell you whether the impact would be minor or significant. A lot will deal with your debt/income ratio. If you're earning $1,500 a month, it'll hurt a lot; if you're earning $7,000 a month the impact will be far less severe.

Also, talk with an accountant about whether putting 30%-40% down on the rental is the best move. It'll certainly reduce your payments. But will you have enough liquid assets after the purchase. Also, if you're expecting the property to appreciate in value (and you should; you shouldn't be buying a property you expect to lose value), you may want to increase your leverage a bit by putting less down.

Hope that helps.

Go to the Tax Appraisal website for the county the property is located in. You can find the tax rate for any property in Texas that way.
