Beautiful 4 Bedroom Home for Sale in Senterra Lakes In keeping with my 2012 Business Plan, I am increasing the number of homes I tour each week so that I can better inform my clients about the active, “for sale” home inventory in my Spring TX housing market area.

Are you the type of person that just can't seem to get a break when searching for a new home to buy? Every time you begin house hunting it just seems like you can never find the right house that you want. Wouldn't it be great to have a subdivision that hosted a large variety of houses, big and small, that were built using an assortment of architectural styles? And on top of that, the homes would be at a largely average price, and would include a lot of special amenities that came with being a homeowner. If this sounds like something that is too good to be true, then perhaps it's time to introduce yourself to the Devonshire Homes for Sale. No longer will you stumble around, wondering where to search for the perfect home. You also will not need to enlist the aide of real estate agents who...

The pictures above were taken at the Augusta Pines firework display last year. My slideshow will be the only fireworks we will be seeing in Harris County this year as all firework displays in Harris and Montgomery County have been cancelled due to our severe drought. We had a nice thunderstorm the other night but being about 17 inches low the ground just immediately soaked it up. We have lived here since December 1996 and it is so strange not seeing the fireworks stands open. Usually they are doing a booming business but this is also the driest that it has been since we have lived here. Typically the entire day of the 4th I hear firecrackers going off but today it has been blissfully quiet. As much as we love our fireworks we love our Texas land more and I’m proud to see everyone going...

  With 100 degree plus weather for most of the last month, one has to wonder why on earth we would stop at a “pepper shop.”  But! Stop we did today at this specialty Pepper Palace in sensational Olde town Spring.   We were on our way to pick up some trusted homeopathic remedies over at Nature's Solutions when this place caught our eye.  We are always watching for examples of good marketing, and this signage worked well.   Having been raised by a Cajun Chef, hot peppers are a much loved part of all my cooking and favorite dishes.  We are very familiar with the effects of peppers.     That being said, we were not really prepared for the selection of peppers in various venues that we found.  This place has walls full of various sauces, relishes, and gourmet products all featuring the hotte...

According to Realty Trac, Inc. There were 153 foreclosure filings in Spring Texas in April of 2011. That works out to be 1 in every 339 homes and represents a 24 increase over March 2011 which is alarming. The increasing number of foreclosure filings are further evidence that the housing crisis is not over. From my understanding the Banks and The Department of Housing and Urban Development have all agreed that 2011 will be the year they push through with most of the pending foreclosures that have been held up due to title issues, faulty assignments and moratoriums. Many economists believe that the best way to deal with this problem is to get through it as quickly as possible. Sellers who are facing foreclosure have two primary options. If they desire to save their homes they can apply f...

Auburn Lakes is a master planned community covering over 500 acres in unincorporated Northwest Harris County.  It is conveniently located just south of The Woodlands off of Gosling and Rayford Rd.   As you can see from my title Auburn Lakes call themselves the closer woods and the name is totally appropriate.      As The Woodlands has grown their amenities are getting closer and closer to Auburn Lakes. If you are not sure that you want to live in The Woodlands but do like having access then Auburn Lakes could be the perfect solution for you.  An additional bonus is that it is closer in to Houston also. When the community is finished there will be around 1200 homes.  Some of the amenities the community offers its residents are a community center with a banquet room and an open air pavil...

  It has been incredibly dry in Spring TX this spring so we have been making a concerted effort to keep our bird bath full as the birds are quite thirsty.  The other morning I noticed a beautiful blue bird land on the bird bath and ran for my camera.  It was the right place at the right time as before I knew it my beautiful blue bird had been joined by 4 friends. I have found that my facebook friends cannot see the slide show.  If you would like to visit the show please visit bird bath time in Spring TX.  I am including one additional picture for those friends. ____________________________________________________________________________________________
