You've probably heard that the $8,000 federal income tax credit for first time home buyers has expired as of April 30, 2010.  Well, if you weren't able to take advantage of that tax credit, there is another tax credit available to first time home buyers in the state of Texas that may be even better! You could potentially get a federal income tax credit through the Texas Mortgage Credit Certificate program of up to $2,000 each and every year that you own and occupy the property you purchase as a first time home buyer (cannot have owned a home in the last 3 years).  If you were to stay in your new home for 10 years, for example, and received the maximum $2,000 tax credit each year, that would be $20,000 in tax credits (federal income tax refunds, or lower tax withholdings each paycheck) f...

Denton, Texas Realtor Leads - (800) 900-2807 Even through this Real Estate downward spin, we are still seeing an increased number of families relocating to cities such as: San Diego, Austin, Denton, etc… Still the #1 drive is jobs, and that cannot be disputed. Although another big reason for relocation that started in 2008, was due to great foreclosure prices. Cities such as Scottsdale, and Denton have both seem dramatic drops in real estate prices, which is driving the people to purchase real etate in those cities. If you are not working with families whom want to purchase foreclosed homes, you are leaving a huge chunk of money on the table. One of the top discussions right now on RealTown and ActiveRain is in regards to boosting your business with foreclosures. Call us at (800) 900-28...

A black, miniature Schnauzer named Maizie is separated from her family in the Meadows at Hickory Creek neighborhood of Denton, Texas! I noticed this sign while driving in the neighborhood, and I had to share, just in case anyone has found Maizie and can help her owners find her. I know how distraught I would be if my chow, Po, ever got loose and we couldn't find him. If you have any information about Maizie the Schnauzer, please call (940) 536-9400. Maizie and her family will love you forever!

Denton is a historic Texas city about forty miles from Dallas and a similar distance from Fort Worth.  On January 20th, I wrote a letter to the mayor the Denton, Texas, which is the home of two major universities -- University of North Texas and Texas Women's University.  The mayor's public biography shows he is an attorney. The letter was not acknowledged.  I believe that Denton residents and university officials should be writing and formally voicing similar opinions.  Here's the letter: The Honorable Mark BurroughsMayor, City of Denton(address redacted)Denton, Texas 76205 Dear Mayor Burroughs: My interest in Denton comes from having been a student at North Texas in the early 1960s and from meeting my wife, Patty, who graduated from there several years after I did.

I always thought each year people making new year's resolutions was kind of silly. Why didn't they start making them on April 20th or October 7th? This time thing of endings and beginnings and our age on our birthdays is all man made you know. It is purely arbitrary with the calendars we design. If you are into resolutions stick with them for 21 days then they have the best chance of sticking. But here is All Your New Year's Resolutions Rolled Into One Number. No doubt time flies. Look at how fast that last DECADE whizzed by? Remember Y2K fears? Seems like yesterday. But we can only REALLY live and control our lives in the moment. 525,600 minutes in a year. Live there. Make the most of EACH MOMENT!!         525,600 Minutes Seasons Of Love

I speak with Loan Offices and Realtors on a daily basis. I am finding that mostare not really interested in helping clients that they can't slam dunk (close with little or no effort). While some of you might say well getting a client closed take lots of work I am sure it does. But what about the clients who are working hard to do everything they can to get their family in a home but they have no one to turn too. The Realtor want assist until they have a pre-qual. letter or the loan officer want touch them because their credit score is is 570 or less. The sad thing is that these hard working people are being brushed off or turned away. For example: Dec. 12 I spoke with a San Antonio Loan Officer I want mention them by name but I called their office up to speak with them about our service...

I was out driving on the north side of Denton, Texas and I've always loved the neighborhood around Woodrow Wilson Elementary School.  It features homes with large lots and tons of mature trees.  It is a family oriented neighborhood with multiple parks, playgrounds, tennis courts, creeks, bike/jogging paths, soccer fields, basketball courts, and more.  My favorite thing about this area is there is a home to fit any family's budget; homes on the outskirts of the neighborhood are a bit more affordable and as you get closer to the parks, the prices go up.  Another great thing about this area is that all of the homes are established and stable,  you don't have new construction going up around you.  Most of the residents have lived in the neighborhood for a long time; this is a part of town t...
