What is the difference in a razed foundation and a raised foundation? Razed means removed versus raised or elevated or possibly to have the weight taken off the foundation so we can remove the old foundation and replace it with a new perimeter foundation. The other day an underwriter was reading the "Guideline" and when she read "razed" in the guideline an "raised" in the contractor's bid she assumed it meant the same thing and told us we couldn't raze the foundation. In either case she would have been wrong. The HUD Guideline allows us to remove a foundation and replace it. What the Guideline was referring to is "if a home has been removed and the foundation razed leaving NOTHING but a vacant lot then the FHA 203k loan is not the loan for that situation.  On the other hand if there is ...

NEIL AND TOM LEWISCirca 2000 For more than 40 years – since I was in the 10th grade – Tom Lewis and his younger brother, Neil, have been two of my friends who are also two of my heroes.  (Neil is about 8 years younger than Tom.  I'm a year younger than Neil.) Tom was a radio newsman after he returned from the service and had gotten his degree from Texas A&M. And Tom looked especially great when he flew down Galveston’s 39th Street in his circa 1954 MG roadster with the top down, on his way to cover a breaking story. I wanted to be Tom. And I wanted to have the personable attributes of both Neil and Tom. Then Tom became a life insurance agent whose clients were primarily those who needed complex coverage. He finally retired, but not before he was nearly 80.  (Health issues were starting...

  * J.D. Roberson Benfit Update Greetings! See information below for updates on the benefit for J.D. Roberson (Amber Roberson's father) to be held on March 5, 2011 at Pelican Junction in Baytown, TX. J.D. Roberson, a 52 year old Harley enthusiast, was in a major motorcycle accident by an uninsured motorist. His right hand was shattered and they had to amputate his right leg. He had already had his left leg amputated from a work related accident over 34 years ago. During the 7+ surgeries to amputate and debreed his right leg and repair his right hand he developed an illius in the colon. They had to perform an emergency colostomy. He is coping very well with the amputations and has received two new prosthetics and is successfully going to physical therapy. He was able to walk about 10 fee...

Sunday September 14, 2008 - 8:45am Woke up (WIDE AWAKE) around 6:30 and jumped out of bed ready to work!  Too bad...thunderstorms rolling in (more feeder bands from Ike) and I've only got minutes before the bottom drops out of those clouds! Went next door to assess the damage.  Tree did bust through the roof in 2 places that I can see.  I'm going to need:  Sheetrock & paint all ceiling & ½ the walls in the living room, Couple of joists & beams in the attic, couple of squares of decking and shingles, carpet in 3 rooms and baseboards in the living room & part of the dining room.     Moved tenant's big screen & wedding pictures out of harms way. Obviously, with these storms, we're not going to remove the tree just yet!  (dammit!) I did clear out a good amount of limbs from my back yard...s...

Saturday September 13, 2008 - 8:40     What a night!  This tree (far left, almost out of picture) split down the middle & fell toward my house, knocking down a second tree (both were neighbor's trees!).  They both fell onto a tree that leans naturally over my house.  Luckily (not so luckily, as I later found out from my insurance adjuster), the tree didn't fall onto or, more importantly, into my house! THAT was the loud crash I heard but refused to go check on just over 3 hours ago!  I thought it went through my roof & into the office (judging by the noise) but I was able to see from inside there was no tree or water penetration into my office! Guess I can take ‘prune trees' off my spring to do list!  WOW!!!  There are as many trees & limbs on the ground as there are standing. Wind stil...

Wednesday September 10, 2008 - around noon It's become obvious that in the next 2-4 days we'll either: Get a category 3+ direct hit -  OR  - Get a category 3+ near miss Either must be treated exactly the same, as a near miss could actually be worse than a direct hit.  It's really just a big (200 miles wide, in Ike's case) tornado.  The only questions being how high will the winds & surge get? Whichever the case (hit or miss), you have one important decision right off the bat...stay or go?  My general rule of thumb is leave for a big category 3 or worse.  I'll more than likely ride out any category 3 or smaller @ 20' or more above sea level...unless I'm right on the water. If your decision is to go...GO NOW!  Pack up anything that you can't live without, anything that's alive, get as muc...

Yesterday a topic was brought up on our local newspaper, The Baytown Sun's forum: http://baytownsun.com/forums.lasso regarding our market and area. I found this discussion very interesting for our area and wanted to post it in my blog for others to see that may have missed it. My screen name is Magnolia Hill and you will see my response in this thread. I thought it was a great topic and discussion for those that are not sure exactly how the forelcosure market in our area works and how it is affecting our area. Let me know your thoughts on it:Recession in BaytownI vividly remember the last time there was a real estate bust in Baytown. This doesn't look anything like it. Housing starts may have slowed, but they are still building new homes everywhere. We keep hearing how bad it is everywh...
