Special Government Rehab Program- Missouri City 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). Thanks to this special FHA loan program, a buyer or home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their new or existing home without the higher cost of a second mortgage. "Luxury items" like a hot tub and a swimming pool are not allowed by this FHA loan program. You can repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, replace appliances and flooring, add wallpaper, or even add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of your home because of more square footage). There are many advantages with this government loan program but the bigges...

With summer in full swing, most parents of young children are spending this time searching for homes to purchase or rent in neighborhoods zoned to either a specific school district or specific school before classes begin.  In fact, I've had the priviledge of working with several families who are relocating to the Fort Bend area, and one of the most important factors that pop up in conversation are SCHOOLS. Schools in Texas are rated based on academic performance on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills test, commonly referred to as TAKS. This standardized exam assesses students' attainment of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies skills required under Texas education standards. There are 4 State Accountability Ratings: Exemplary (4-star) Recognized (3-star) Acceptab...

Funding in the past year has been a challenge. Although there have traditionally been a number of sources for commercial loans, adverse economic conditions have combined to limit credit:  The major problem in the past several years has been the collapse of the CMBS (commercial mortgage backed securities) market accompanied by significantly tighter credit conditions by banks. In the past decade, regional commercial banks significantly increased their exposure to commercial real estate, with a number of loans subsequently entering default. This has resulted in a reduced level of credit availability, both as a result of the need to protect the bank's capital base as well as in response to regulatory requirements.
