Is a Reverse Mortgage a Viable Option For Me?

Wouldn’t it be nice to grab some quick cash from the equity in your home once you get into your later years?  You might have some medical expenses coming up or you might even have a nice vacation that you have been planning for years. I’ve always said that if it is too good to be true then chances are it is. We want to talk about the risk involved in pulling out a reverse mortgage on your home:   Moving out of the property Whether you are the one getting the reverse mortgage or the child assisting the parent getting the mortgage, there are some details to consider before you do so.  Most loans require you to fully occupy the property while the debt is still outstanding.  This means that if you or your parent must be put into a nursing home or an assisted living facility at any time, the debt is still...

Why you should sell your house to a real estate investor?

Why sell your house to a real estate investor?   This is a question that we get asked a lot when we have clients that call us.  There are many things to think about before selling a home in general and we thought it would be a good idea to break down the pros and cons of selling a home to a real estate investment company.   Pros:   Payment options - Most investors have the ability to pay in all cash so this means you can close very quickly.  This might be your whole reason for selling your property in the first place.  In this situation it is best to get proof of cash funds or verifiable certified funds to back up the offer before closing.  Some investors may even offer to take over the existing mortgage on a property to allow the debt burden to be lifted from the homeowner.  The most important...

Super Bowl

It’s Super Bowl time in Houston!

It's Super Bowl time in Houston!  Although most of the post season match-ups this year have been quite the disappointment, this one is set to have nothing but fireworks.  This match-up features two offensive juggernauts that have been shredding defenses left and right all year long.  The Falcons, led by quarterback Matt Ryan, have averaged a whopping 430 yards  per game during the regular season.  The receiving core with the likes of Jones and Sanu have averaged over 300 yards a game, giving defensive coordinators nightmares each time they face them.  This goes without mentioning the two-headed monster at the running back position with Freeman and Coleman, who have averaged over 120 yards per game against opposing defenses.  This much firepower on one side of the ball has really made it difficult to contain all year long.  Though the Atlanta defense has gotten the job done, it has been the offenses...

The playoffs are here Texans fans!

The moment all of us football fans have been waiting for is here!  It's playoff time in Houston.  This Saturday the Houston Texans get another shot at the Oakland Raiders from their previous match-up on November 21st of this year.  Everyone remembers the heart break, prime time Monday night game in Mexico City.  That night can be all but a memory with a victory this Saturday when it counts the most.  The Houston Texans coming off a very poor performance against the Tennessee Titans in Nashville last week, have a chance to show they have what it takes to make a deep run this year. If you go back and look at most of the statistics for the game, you would assume that the Texans came home with a win, however there were two key areas that had the Texans coming back to Houston without a win.   The Texans had...

Back To School

Summer vacation is coming to a close and that means only one thing – back-to-school! We’re talking the works, school supplies, back-to-school bed time routines, new clothes, fresh haircuts, and the end of summer outings. In the hustle and bustle of back-to-school, parents can definitely find some things to help ensure that this time of year offers a smooth transition. We have come up with a few ways to help make sure that this year gets off to a good start! Routines! We know that during the summertime, bedtime routines go by the wayside, therefore we recommend establishing the back-to-school bedtime at least 2 weeks prior to entering school. This allows ample time for kids to get enough sleep in preparation for the big day and it also ensures that mom or dad keep their sanity with the early mornings ahead. Teacher! Who are your kid’s teachers? Have you attended any open houses,...

Gearing Up for The Fourth of July

Gearing Up For The Fourth Of July

Gearing Up For The Fourth of July Every year we find ourself gearing up for the fourth of July, making plans and executing tremendous events in order to celebrate for independence day. No, I'm not talking about aliens coming to attack and Will Smith shutting them down. I'm talking about the celebration of our independence day as a nation that in 1776 gained our independence from Great Britain. The holiday became a federal holiday in 1941. On that July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. during the summer of 1776 some colonists celebrated the birth of independence by holding mock funerals for King George III, as a way of symbolizing the end of the monarchy’s hold on America and the triumph of liberty. I always thought that is was kind of humorous that...
