If you know McAllen Texas and have some insight into the growth there - potential or real - send this author a note. She has put out a request for help. The magazine she is writing for appears to be new. You can probably get quoted if you provide good information. Her name is Tonya Whitaker and the Magazine is Capiqua. I have no idea where the magazine name came from or what it means. Her request was "I am writing a story about McAllen, Texas, making a few lists as the place of steady job growth in 2010. I need to speak with someone familiar with job market issues." Those things include real estate, too. So if you're an expert in McAllenese, send her a note! query-1at@helpareporter.com Tonya Whitaker

Friday, August 14, 2009 If you are a First Time Homebuyer and you are interested in the slightest about purchasing a home, NOW is the time. The clock is ticking down. The deadline is November 30, 2009 so that means you need to get in to see your lender TODAY and get pre-qualified, then go shopping for your home. Although the lending requirements have changed over the last 24 months, believe it or not banks are still lending money. FHA is still probably the most attractive program for someone purchasing a home for the first time who does not necessarily want to pay all of their down payment, pre-paids, and closing costs out of pocket.Wells Fargo's First Time Homebuyer's Guide defines these as:Down payment - Money paid to make up the differencebetween the purchase price and the mortgage a...

Thursday, August 20, 2009 I had an interesting conversation yesterday revolving around the First Time Homebuyer tax credit. I would like to share that information. First of all we need to be on the same page about the tax credit itself. You cannot have had ownership interest in a property for the last 3 years to qualify and you will recieve a credit of 10% of your purchase price up to a maximum of $8000.00. Sounds great! You have until 11/30/2009 to close and fund to recieve your credit when you file your income taxes. GET SHOPPING. You will recieve your money after you close when you receive your tax refund.There is also a program with the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs that will allow you to take an advance on your Tax Credit prior to closing and use that money for ...

I was surprised to find that it breaks down my initial interview with first time homebuyers. It shows you the actual pros and cons of homeownership. check it out.... http://www.handsonbanking.org/en/My typical first interview is full of questions and answers. I try to ask as much information about my customer's current situation and what they expect for their future. This is how I can help them make the best decisions. Sometimes, I find that first time homeowners are often afraid to ask questions. If you find yourself in this category, check out this Hands on Banking Course, prior to the initial interview.

Okay so I went to Starbucks again today and enjoyed my Venti Non-Fat Cafe Mocha No Whip. Did I get that right? I swear I stand in line and rehearse what I am going to say. Venti Non-Fat Cafe Mocha No Whip. I forgot the No Whip today but the girl behind the counter asked before they made it. I read chapter two of "The Automatic Millionaire Homeowner" by David Bach. It talks about the power of homeownership vs renting. The book describes a few things that show that owning a home will eventually make you money. For example, you can use the bank or "OPM" other people's money to buy the home. Homeowner's get tax breaks that renter's don't and you can get a return on your investment when buying a home, that is greater than any other investment avaialable.There are a couple of talking points t...

As with most of the country, real estate transaction volume in the McAllen Texas area has dropped. During the 4th quarter of 2008, sales decreased to 535 homes sold. Some of the factors contributing to the slowdown include the seasonality of real estate, the tightning of credit and buyer hesitation caused by media hype. Many files that were in process of closing were also delayed due to underwriters "overanalyzing" files. During the 1st quarter of 2009, sales had a slight increase to 544 homes. But volume is down 15% compared to the same period last year. In 2008, Foreclosures continue to gain market share as a significant component of the local real estate market. During the first quarter, REO / Foreclosure properties accounted for 47% of all closings. They only represent 11% of the in...
