Quite often our 203k consultants have other services to offer such as architectural, engineering, mold testing, standard home inspection, termite inspections, and all of these services can be performed on a subject property as needed.These additional services should be paid for outside the 203k. I actually recommend that a termite report be ordered in every case on every project. Why? We have more eyes on the problems with this property.We have such a short time to inspect the property and write the report that having that additional set of eyes sometimes makes the difference in a headache or a successful construction project. The more eyes we have on a property the better the overall report will be and the more success full it will be. We work with people sometimes doing this for the f...

How long has it been since you did a listing presentation on a house that made your mouth water?   We had that opportunity  this afternoon.     The house is a classic 1920s beauty that has been redone from Izard!  The updates and upgrades are straight from house beautiful magazine!   Just over 3000 sq feet,  the high ceilings overlook beautifully redone, Original.... nearly hundred year old, heart of pine floors through the downstairs.   Century old oaks cascade over the yard and porches.  The landscape is impeccable and lush.   There are several porches including a screened balcony off the upstairs master suite.   The master also has an incredible bathroom with custom tub and a spectacular shower.  The closets are large enough  to accomodate weekend guests!  The organizational systems ...

MUST SEE: The Big Mamou, Cajun Restaurant, Houston Heights 77008 (http://www.thebigmamou.com/)   The Big Mamou is a Cajun Restaurant right in the heart of the Houston Heights.   Located on Studewood, The Big Mamou is a old bungalow that has been converted to a restaurant with two outdoor patios: one in the front and also in the rear.  They serve authentic Cajun "comfort" food and have a Sunday brunch as well.  (Comfort food? that is anything fried .. ;-)). I discovered The Big Mamou about a year ago going to White Linen Night in the Heights, a post summer celebration.  The owner Brenda was making a mean batch of hot fried dough and dowsing them with tons of powdered sugar.  Ahhhh.. Beignets!!! I am SO excited.  Since then, when I am in the mood for a bit of kick and comfort food, I head...

Now is the time to Refinance! Here's the great news if you think you may be in the market to refinance. Mortgage rates are at an all time low. Let's look at the difference between what you have and what is available. Let's assume you want to lower your mortgage payment dramatically. If you have a current rate of say 7% and rates are easily available at 5% and we are looking at your current mortgage of 227,500. We're going to also assume your monthly payment to be about $1665. If you refi down to the new rate you could reduce your monthly payments to about $1245 per month. This is a savings of about 25%, $420 less per month than before. Now is the time to Refinance!  In taking this option it does rest the clock on you back to a thirty year mortgage but if you have the ability and the dis...

It's time for the Urban Market in the Heights.  The market will be held on the Knights of Columbus area at 607 E. Whitney  Drive under the big tents.  I missed it last time, but want to check it out tomorrow, to see what kinds of items they have.  It's suppose to be sunny, maybe a little too hot, but it is said to be a great find.  They have antiques, home furnishings, decorator mistakes, designer items and fabric swatches among other things at prices to die for.  Forty dealers will be there getting rid of current stock to make room for new items coming in. Delivery service on siteRain or Shine9 - 4 pm$5 Admission - Children Free.See you at the Market!For Information contact:Jackie Sharbrough at Jackie@TheUrbanMarketHouston.comTicket Info: $5 Website: http://TheUrbanMarketHouston.com

The laid back neighborhood known as the Heights is facing a dramatic change. A developer has bought 5 acres of land on Heights Blvd. that he plans to turn into a 5 story mixed use development. The project features 100,000 sq ft. of retail space that will be topped with 200 to 300 apartments. High end retails are already inquiring about the project set to start in the fall and opening in 2009. For more information regarding the project visit the website below.http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/stories/2007/12/24/story1.html
