I have moved more times than I can count. I have moved streets, cities, states, and countries and it’s always the same. When I know that I’m moving, I suddenly hate my current home. The wait time for me can be excruciating. I become obsessed and I can’t stop thinking about where I’m going to put my furniture and how I will organize my bathroom and closet. I scan Pinterest for decoration ideas. But it’s still too early to pack. You may be like me, or you may be that last minute person that has to take a million trips back after moving to pick up stuff. Either way, these tips are for you. 1. Use up all of your liquidsTry not to buy any new shampoos, soaps, or cleaning supplies. Make it your personal goal to use these up. Try to get by using hotel soaps and shampoos (you don’t want to move...

Quick update, Fannie Mae just came out and made a temporary change to mortgage guidelines for those borrowers that are affected by the Govt Shut down.  This change would be for those not working due to the govt shut down.  Here are the specifics:         This change is for all conventional loans except for High Loan to Value refinances.  So it will affect, purchase loans.         The borrower will now need 2mths of Reserves(aka 2 mortgage payments) or the amount required per Fannie Mae’s mortgage automated approval system.   Long story short many loans do not require any reserves, so this change would mean any govt employee that is affected would need to have more money saved vs prior to the temporary change  This change is temporary until the government is back to work.  Thou if you ar...

There are so many reasons not to keep that big huge house anymore, the kids are gone, you do not have time to keep up with the maintance of the house, you realize you do not need all that room, the list goes on and on. Many people want to downsize but they do not want to downgrade! They cannot go to a regular 50 foot or 55 foot community because they would be the most expensive house in the neighborhood and no one wants to be that house. So come on check out the Sitterle difference. Come see our lifestyle homes I think you will like what you see. Go to www.sitterlehomes.com. If you are looking for a Sitterle Home in Aliana give me a call at 281-804-9265.

First of all, let me tell you that I am about to climb up on my soapbox here.   Last week I went to meet a potential seller.  The property next door was listed as a For Sale by Owner, or FSBO, in real estate language.  The lady I was meeting with said the owner next door had the home on Zillow and was getting minimal showings.  She was, however, very excited that she was going to be listing the home next week with an agent who was going to do it for free.  You see, this agent is a full time dentist, recently licensed, and just "needed the practice" of listing and selling a home. Now, I'm not going to go down the obvious path of "would you hire a part-time dentist who just wanted to practice on your cavity".  Obviously, a dentist has been through years of medical training and hopefully e...
