Well, here I am, (Traci Frasier) trying to write a blog post.....the problem is, I'm not much of a writer, actually, not a writer at all. Reading, that's the ticket for me. Give me a good book with a mystery, murder, and some romance, and I'm enthralled. It seems to be such an incredible thing to write, and so very intimidating, but enough about my love of books. Let's talk real estate. Now, that is something fun. When flipping though the TV channels, it seems that my clicker goes to HGTV without hesitation. When on the computer, Pinterest holds my interest. Just driving around our beautiful town of Boerne is interesting. Going to friends houses and seeing what all they have done, that is way out fun. Really? Yes! That's why showing houses is so fun! I just love seeing everyone's differ...

Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program with Boerne TX FHA 203k Loans.     Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- a department within HUD). This FHA loan program allows the buyer or existing owner of a home to do significant amounts of remodeling or updating to their home without a higher cost second lien.         However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Although, you can repaint, replace flooring and appliances, add a room to an existing structure (which can add to value tremendously as you increase the square feet of your home) as well as remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms.         This loan program ha...

Serious shoppers wait for a 50% off sale to make the decision because of the bargain factor. Renters who are serious about lowering their monthly cost of housing should consider buying with today’s low mortgage rates. For an example, let’s assume a person buys a $200,000 home with 3.5% down payment on a 4.5% FHA mortgage for 30 years.  The total house payment would be approximately $1,508 per month. However, once you consider the equity build-up due to normal amortization, a monthly appreciation estimated at 2% annually for this example, the tax savings and paying maintenance that a tenant wouldn’t be required to do, the net cost of housing is $772 a month. This is almost half of the full mortgage payment. If this person was paying $1,750 a month for rent, it would cost him almost $978...

Build It & They Will Come -New Home Construction in Boerne, Texas The quiet little town of Boerne is no more, it is growing in every direction.  With the addition of a 2nd high school, Boerne Champion on Hwy 46E and 5 elementary schools and two middle schools, population has popped.  People are moving away from the stress of big city living and moving out to smaller bedroom communites.  Fair Oaks Ranch was originally known as a bedroom community, but it has expanded to include the Boerne area.  And who wouldn't want to live in Boerne, with it's cute little shops on Main Street, corporate shopping on the southwest side of town, historical areas, the Old #9 Trail and the newly added trails along the creek and behind downtown.   Fun events almost every weekend include Market Days, Music, w...

  Why Borrowers Pay Different Rates Lenders, like any business, have to make a profit.  The cost of acquiring the funds, the operating costs to service and the expected profit margin are easily identified.  The variable in pricing is the type of mortgage and the credit worthiness of the borrower.  A loan with a 3.5% down payment is riskier than a loan with 20% down payment.  If the lender has to take the property back to recover their expense, the margin is greater between what is owed and what the property is worth on an 80% mortgage.  Credit scoring is a risk-based pricing method that allows a lender to be competitive in the market for the best loans from different borrower groups.  Individual lenders set their own levels for what they consider “A” credit which is reserved for the bes...
