What is this?  Well the state decides where the best development for the state would be and therfore makes incentives for people to live there.  How does it help me?  Well, if you are interested in an area that qualifies for rural development you can get assistance with your down payment.  Therefore, if you are a new buyer and want a home we can basically get you in a home with no money down and with the tax credit of $8,000 you get money back when you file your taxes.  Seems pretty good to me.  I don't know why any buyer that has this education wouldn't buy now.  There is also a bond issuance available to assist with down payment.  All you have to do is have the seller pay your closing costs and you can get out from under your rent for a sound real estate investment.  NO BRAINER?  For ...

Although this is a large topic, I think it boils down to just one question.  Should you be buying a house?  Whether you are looking at owner occupied or an investment property you need to ask yourself this question.  The reason.  With financing the way it is can you get approved.   The banks will not approve you if you are not fiscally responsible and do not have the ability to make the payment and/or have money down.  There are some options for you: 1.  Bond or Rural Development Loans- These will help you with that notorious down payment but certain restrictions apply as far as income and are.  These also only apply if the bond is available and if you are owner/occupying the home. 2.  Investment Property - This is a great time to buy single family residential investment property.  Why?...

The myth goes something like this.  Why not buy directly from the builder and cut out the realtor?  That would make sense because we would then end up saving the realtors commission.  Right?  Wrong, buying from the builder does sometimes make sense.  While the commission is an integral part of the price what makes you think the builder will come down anymore on his price because you don't use a realtor.  Let me put it this way.  Most builders have to watch their comparables for any neighborhood.  They are not going to give you the special deal you hope for and carry that loss of profit through the next 10-15 houses they build.  Would you do that?  I don't think so.  The reason the builder wants to do business without the realtor is because they are smart about the transaction.  They, si...

Well that is a good question.  Let me address it as easily as I can.  If you are looking to move up as a first time home buyer, or an investor, in my opinion, this is the best time to buy.  With interest rates lower than they have ever been you will be able to buy more house than ever before.  Another reason is that if you take a 150K house and figure that you will be losing 5% of what you would have got last year that equals $7,500.00.  Now if you were to buy a bigger house at 300k at a discount of $15,000.00 you would saving over $7,500.00 to make your move now.  Not to mention the fact your payment would be significantly lower due to interest rates.  Just so you know I do not just preach this information.  I am currently involved in buying 3 rental properties ,and have a partnership ...

I just saw the Leather Heads at the new Warren Theatre in Moore, OK. Being overwhelmed with the design of the establishment, I felt it worth mentioning. The digital projection, along with the THX sound gives a near life experience. With a touch of the old movie theatre atmosphere and the cushy lounge seats, it was a very relaxing experience. As the trailers started, it was announced that severe weather is monitored. This is part of Oklahoma where the May 3rd F5 tornado hit in 1999. That will be 9 years ago tomorrow. Since that time the same area has been hit again. It really makes you look at how the metro property changes. Also how America can evolve into enjoyment out of tragedy.

2008 is bringing great news to the Moore, Ok housing market. As of February 1st, 2008 there were 823 residential properties on the market in Moore. Although still considered a buyer's market with over six months worth of inventory actively listed, Moore real estate is by no means in a slump! The rapid development of Moore's Riverwalk retail district means jobs, tax dollars, and people continue to pour into Moore, which is one of the fastest growing cities in Oklahoma. With a lower cost of living than many of its larger neighbors and an average listing price of $153, 900, Moore is budget friendly, but with all the amenities of the big city literally minutes away. This growing community is a home buyer's dream! Sellers will also see the benefits of the current market, as population and jo...

Different from traditional cinemas, the still-under-construction Warren theatre on the I-35 Service Road in Moore is being dubbed as the world's largest luxury 20-plex complex, complete with a diner, a fireplace , a special room for parents with fussy children, and classically styled balconies harking back to the glory days of classic movie houses. The theater's ground floor will be 150,000 square feet and seat 7000 happy movie-goers. The lobby will compete with the grandest hotels or casinos, with sculpted ceilings, custom-crafted door handles and terrazzo floors with marble and granite throughout set the mood. An art deco 1930s and '40s movie theater ambiance will be the hallmark of the 20-plex. The Warren will be hard to miss with its towering neon marquee continuing the Art-Deco app...

If you are looking for something to do and like plays, I would highly recommend The Yellow Rose Theater in Moore, OK.Last night I went to the "Christmas Extravaganza", it was really entertaining.  The cast included Dean Martin, Sammy Davis,Jr. and Frank Sinatra.  They have several different plays and musicals throughout the year. You are served a dinner that is wonderful and a dessert to die for.  The entire program lasts approx 3 1/2 hours and the cost ranges between $35 - $50.The Yellow Rose Theater, 1005 SW 4th, Moore, OK  (405)793-7779 For all your real estate needs, call Tammy Carpenter (405)202-3690
