  My 4th Transaction With This Same AWESOME Family Just Sold! 376 Cutter in Timber Bay     This is not just Another Home Sold With Joni Staples! This is the 4th transaction that I have been honored to do this family!    Yep! You read that right! The FOURTH transaction! It all started back when I first got my real estate license and I listed a WATERFRONT single wide mobile home in Harbor Point subdivision in Trinity, Texas. Let's call this first home "the daughter's house." It was a well maintained home on GREAT water on Lake Livingston. The home sold quickly and several months later the daughter called me to tell me that her father and step-mother were interested in looking for a lake house.   I went to work and found "the parents" a great fixer upper. They purchased the home and spent ...

  Lake Livingston Subdivision YouTube Series: Timber Bay       Timber Bay is located outside of the city limits of Trinity. It is a gated community on the northern end of Lake Livingston. Homes are primarily frame with a few brick and log homes as well. There is one street to the far west of the subdivision that allows for mobile homes.   Timber Bay residents have a great sense of pride of ownership and you can see it as you drive through the streets of the neighborhood. This adorable, gated community is small (approximately 5 streets total), with ammenities such as a swimming pool, community pavillion/picnic area, and boat launch giving you direct access to Lake Livingston.   I absolutely LOVE this subdivision! You will too!    When you are ready to learn more about Lake Livingston and...

  Oakridge Subdivision on Lake Livingston - Market Report Through August 21, 2013       Oakridge subdivision is located at the northwest side of the White Rock Creek bridge on FM 356 in Trinity County. Oakridge is a homes only subdivision with homes made of wood, brick, hardy board, and log.   Sales data for 2013 can be a bit deceiving. One of the three homes that sold was in serious need of repair causing it to sell well below its market value. The other waterfront home was on the market for over 1,300 days. A classic case of why listing your home too high can actually make you get LESS in the long run. The third home sold at 104% of its asking price, with only 3 days on the market.   Currently there is one active listing in Oakridge. It is a 5 bedroom 3 bath home. It is waterfront wit...
