We had an exciting week here in little ole Granbury, TX. The fan-favorite TV Series, Yellowstone, descended upon our town this week. The show is preparing a Prequel called 1883. Our tiny town Square welcomed the film crews and the actors as streets were closed to accommodate the filming.My real estate office, Beam & Branch Realty was just a few doors down from the excitement and we all had fun watching the drama unfold. The immense amount of work that goes into the preparation of the site was really interesting to watch. Those on the film crew worked tirelessly from sun up to sundown.There were many sightings of Sam Elliott and he was kind to wave back at the growing crowd who braved the 100-degree heat to watch. Our local Silver Saddle Saloon created a great place for the actors and cr...

I live in a small Texas town outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Because our town is historic, quaint, and accessible, we have many tourists each day visiting our historic Square. Granbury is experiencing a surge of people seeking to escape various living situations and find themselves at our front door.My office is in one of the newly renovated buildings on our Square and as such, we have lots of drop-ins which we love. Our first question is, "Hey there, where are you all from?" More than likely we hear, California. Additionally, we also hear these families are seeking to move entire families to our area. What they are looking for are properties with multiple homes already on them or, land in which to build. Both of these situations are challenging in our market due to low inventory...

Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using FHA 203k Rehab Loans in Granbury Texas.Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA (a department within HUD). 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.However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. 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.This lo...

At the heart of town is the beautiful and iconic town Square.My husband and I purchased our first building on the Square two years ago and lovingly restored it where our real estate office, Beam & Branch Realty calls home.

My husband Mark and I purchased a 12.9-acre tract of land just three blocks north of our historic town square here in Granbury, Texas almost 4 years ago. When we spotted this tract of land, we knew it was something special. Being walking distance to the Square, we saw the potential for this little tract.Yesterday, we successfully closed the tract after working with a developer out of the Metroplex for over a year. We are busting at the seams about this new housing development. It will feature 69, front-porch series homes in a gated neighborhood. The price point will be in the high 200's to the mid-400's.The street scenes will be pre-determined in order to maintain the visual integrity of the neighborhood. The neighborhood may be a 55+ development but this has yet to be determined. We wi...
