For years I have giving this talk before church groups, Rotary Clubs, book signings and the like.  The title is "What's Important Is Who Plays the Part of Arthur Fonzarelli."  And the story is even one that's featured in my book Bill Cherry's Galveston Memories. It's an important lesson that I learned by observing the character and actions of my friend of more than fifty years, Victor J. Damiani. More often than not, the talk brings a standing ovation, not because I do a particularly good job of telling it, but because the story of Victor and what we learned from him is so poignant. Today is Victor's birthday.  It's number 71.  And he's still teaching us by his own example how God expects us to live our lives.   BILL CHERRY, REALTORS DALLAS-HIGHLAND PARK 214 503-8563 WEB

Today I am going to examine the Pearland real estate market up close and personal.  I am gong to drill down to the last 6 months of information about Pearland. I am going to start at the first week of February 2009 and move all the way through to July 19, 2009 a week at a time to find out just how Pearland and the real estate market is doing.  My goal is to help you understand how the real estate market is doing and why is a great time to buy a home. So, the 1st week of Feb. 2 2009, Pearland had 27 homes sold with an average price of $184,900 which is above the $183K running average price.  Then the next week, Feb. 9, we had 25 homes sold with an average price of $157,500... Wow.  And that was way below the average.  Then the week of Feb. 16, the real estate market jumped back with a ni...

All homeowners have one thing in common – home improvement and maintenance projects. Whether something breaks, becomes outdated, or you’re ready for a change, certain projects are just a part of owning a house. Should I stay or should I go? So what makes for a successful home-improvement project? The answer depends on your intentions. Are you making a change because you plan on living in the house for a while? Are you upgrading so you can sell soon? Your plans should affect your priorities and make certain improvements more appealing. Where to start? Whether you’re staying for a while or selling soon, structural and mechanical improvements should come first. Plumbing and electrical systems should be sound before you go for a hot tub and modern appliances. What good are new wood floors i...

There's no question about it: nationwide foreclosures are up, particularly in Nevada, California, Arizona, Michigan, Florida and Colorado. Although we can be grateful that the Lone Star State is not currently near the top of this list, there are Texans facing foreclosure. No one buys a home with the intention of falling behind on payments and facing foreclosure proceedings, yet it happens. Even when the nationwide picture is much rosier than it is today, some homeowners find themselves in this unenviable position. Here are a few tips to avoid this scenario, and what to do if it occurs. Don't set yourself up for failure There are two main ways to lessen the likelihood of foreclosure before you're even in the house. First, don't put yourself in a situation where you won't be able to affo...

THINKING ABOUT BUYING YOUR FIRST Pearland Home?   You've probably wondered many times if you can afford to buy a home. Did you know that continuing to make rental payments may be more expensive in the long-run? When you make rental payments, the money is gone forever. When you make mortgage payments, however, you build equity in your home. The longer you own your own home, the larger your equity becomes. Your home may also appreciate in value, usually at a rate faster than the rate of inflation. In addition, property taxes and mortgage interest paid on your personal residence are usually 100% tax deductible. There are numerous advantages to owning a home. Here are some things to consider when buying your first home. Obtain Your Credit Report   Get a copy of your credit report from the ...
