This is my second in a series of post for first time home buyers in Spring TX.  Now that you are pre-approved for your home loan the next step is to start searching for your home. I have found that most buyers like to start looking at homes and familiarizing themselves with the areas online.  Spring is a large area located in two different Counties (Harris County and Montgomery County) and three different school districts.  Plus you also have the neighboring areas of Tomball, Magnolia and The Woodlands to consider. With this in mind you are going to want to start narrowing down the area where you want to live. There are lots of websites that you can go to search for homes for sale but we are blessed in the Houston area to have an INCREDIBLE Public MLS site through the Houston Associatio...

I remember being a first time home buyer and the mystery that surrounded the transaction.  This is the first post of a "Spring TX first time home buyer series". I hope this series will help to alleviate some of the home buying mystery. The VERY FIRST step in the process is to get yourself pre-approved with a good lender.  I'm not talking pre-qualified; I'm talking pre-approved. There is a difference between the two.  In the days where anyone could get a loan this was not a big deal but those days are over. What is a Pre-Qualification? A prequalification is simply a meeting between a loan officer and a customer to determine what the mortgage needs of the customer are.  Income and assets are not verified.  The credit report may or may not be pulled.  The information is not submitted to an...

I often get Internet request asking to be set up for home searches for subdivisions that do not have home-owner's associations.  I have lived in other states where that would be no big deal as zoning helps to maintain the areas.  This request takes a different spin in Houston as we do not have zoning in the Houston area.  When there is not a Home Owners Association there are usually also no deed restrictions.  With no deed restrictions you tend to get a little bit of everything.  I took some pictures in a subdivision in Spring that has no deed restrictions.  I have always called the subdivision the Vegetable Patch as the streets are named such things as Carrot, Turnip and Tomato.  The actual name of the subdivision is Farmette Meadows. As you can see there's a little bit of everything i...

We recently walked out our front door to see what we thought was a GIANT beehive in our small oak tree in the front yard. My first inclination was to grab a bottle of bug spray. Now that was my inclination but my husband happened to know of a bee keeper so we called him instead. I must say watching him move the swarm to a new home was quite a learning experience. Yes that was a swarm in our tree; not a hive. They were actually swarming over an old bird nest. It appears that they have been kicked out of their prior home so these worker bees went with their queen to find a new home. I for one was not happy about that home being in my front yard. The bee keeper brought them over a nice 3/2/2 and helped them to get settled. Honey bee swarms are actually not dangerous.  They are only defensi...

One of the things that I love about living in Spring TX is the close access we have to Lake Conroe.  We love to sail and within 30 to 40 minutes we can be at the lake.  Yesterday the heavens opened and we had a day of rain (all day long) so it was wonderful to see the sun today.  Along with the sun we had some incredible winds which are great when you are a sailer.  I hope you enjoy our day at the lake! I have to thank Myrl Jeffcoat for teaching me how to do the slideshow.  She has written a wonderful tutorial if you want to learn how to animate a slideshow.

If you are thinking of moving to Spring Texas there are things you need to know. Things Rick (my husband and fellow Prudential Gary Greene Realtor) and I eventually learned on our own but want to share with you. 10 Things you need to know before moving to Spring Texas: 1.  No Downtown. Spring Texas is an unincorporated area of Harris County which means there is no actual city of Spring.  We do have Old Town Spring which is a quaint area of 200 shops but it is not what you would expect a downtown area of city to be. 2.  Our areas blend together.  Where Houston TX ends Spring TX begins. And without a "Welcome to Spring TX" sign, you never knew you just left one city and entered another. The areas blending together hold true for other areas too as where Spring TX ends either Cypress, Tomba...

When you are taking a cruise around Spring, Tx and you see this breathtaking entrance, you know that you have found The Falls at Imperial Oaks. Keep on driving around until you reach the Lake Club!  You will see the 43 Acre Playground, Jr. Olympic Size Pool and Splashpad covered sitting area for when the kids are splashing or maybe even use the outdoor cooking area for a Barbeque. Currently building in the Community are David Weekley and Lennar from the 180's to the 300's with a large variety of floorplans including those with 2 Master Bedrooms for a Mother In Law Suite.  So, where is it located?  Just a couple miles from I-45 North AND a couple miles to Hardy Toll Road for a straight shot to Downtown Houston.  Either way, easy access to major freeways. In the front of the community of...
