Let me share my reasons why Spring Time is my favorite season of the year in South Texas. First, the cold weather is officially gone. It’s a great time to be outdoors in the yard, your garden, at the park, jogging/walking those fun races, or just taking a stroll in your favorite neighborhood. Speaking of which, San Antonio has many to choose from if you are planning to relocate your primary residence, or just want to find a nice second home to get away from the cold winters from up North, the Mid-West, or back East.You don’t want to miss out on Fiesta San Antonio 2018, as we are celebrating our 300 years anniversary for the Alamo City. I know all the golf enthusiasts have their eyes on the first Golf National of the year in Augusta, GA. Many are wondering what Tiger Woods will do in his...

Nobody plans on getting divorced.The decision to get a divorce is a difficult one. No matter how common, it is one of the most challenging of life’s experiences. When a couple finally resigns to the idea of going separate ways, their entire life shifts. Along with this, there are many issues that must be handled including child custody disputes, parenting time, alimony and child support and equitable distribution of property. A number of divorce disputes lie in identifying, valuing and distributing assets and liabilities subject to equitable distribution.  The procedure for San Antonio real property division is much more than a simple "this is mine" and "that is yours." When couples divorce, they can either reach an agreement on their own as to how to divide marital property or have a j...

The entire divorce journey is often riddled with emotionally charged issues. Couples, or soon-to-be exes, have to deal with the children and the custody decisions. If they own a home together, they also have to decide what to do with their largest joint asset.  Handling property settlement issues in a divorce is never easy. Aside from having a qualified attorney, divorcing couples also need a qualified real estate professional to help them with the decisions regarding the family home.  There are usually three options for how to divide marital property in a divorce.1. One spouse keeps the house, the other moves out.In this scenario, one spouse continues owning and managing the house. It may be the best choice for whoever gets primary custody of the children. If the children have spent ye...

What 2018 Home Improvement Projects Provide the Greatest Return on My Investment?   You know the expression, “get your house in order?” Well, as it turns out, ensuring that the foundation of your home is in great working order is one of the best investments you can make when it comes to increasing your home’s value. Sure, you may dream of granite countertops and a luxury jacuzzi tub, and while a prospective buyer isn’t likely to turn their nose up at those features, they’ll be much more concerned about the quality of the roof and plumbing.

 A Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program with San Antonio Texas FHA 203K Loans.   The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offers a special government loan program that a lot of people are not aware of. A buyer or existing home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their existing home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program.     The loan program does not allow for “luxury items” which are defined as items like a swimming pool or hot tub, etc. 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.     One of the biggest advantages to this ...

If you’re a veteran looking for a home improvement loan to make some upgrades to improve your home, I have good news and bad news.The bad news is the VA doesn’t offer any loans for this purpose. However, the good news is the Texas Veterans Land Board does, and they recently doubled the amount they’re willing to loan to a veteran—$50,000.There are a couple very favorable terms to this loan. Not only will they go up to 20 years on the loan at below market rate, but you don’t have to provide a down payment either. However, the program does have some additional requirements. A $10 Flood Certification is required upon application. $125 title search fee required at time of application. Of course, there are closing costs too.  To apply for this loan, just go online at Texas Veterans Land Board...
