Granbury Listings Have Come A Long Way!

Granbury Listings Have Come a Long Way, Baby!   

Ever since the real estate world turned the corner and plunged full bore into the virtual world of home computers, cell phones and iPads, Granbury home buyers and sellers have benefitted greatly. There had been an issue about the fate of the once closely-held and jealously-guarded Secrets of the Kingdom—“the listings.” The North Texas listings are the compilation of current details about homes that are up for sale in Granbury. There is no single national clearing house for U.S. listings. They are run regionally at local and state levels. But in just about every part of the country, being in possession of the latest listings book was a necessity for real estate professionals. 

As computers and then dial-up modem connectivity put real estate offices in touch with new digital listing databases, it became possible to replace the once-a-week listing page mailings with instantly updated listings. Even the most stubbornly technology-resistant could not deny the obvious superiority of electronic listings. Next, as Internet access became more and more common, it became clear that the digitized listings could go online for clients, too …creating something new: instant public access. 

You can imagine how much resistance many in real estate’s old guard put up against that development! Historically, the only way a buyer could be sure to find out what Granbury properties were for sale had been to thumb through an agent’s listing book, or to have their Realtor® copy the relevant pages. Giving away that irreplaceable asset seemed to some to be the height of foolishness. On the other hand, the forward-looking segment...

Home Buying - Now Is Better Than Later

Buying A Home

If you have been thinking of buying a home in Texas, this is the right time to do it home values are on the rise and if you wait, you most likely will end up paying more. In addition, it is expected that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates which will make home financing more expensive in the future.   When the economy crashed a few years ago, property values plummeted across the country. Texas, on the other hand, fared relatively well.  Many people lost their homes in the process too. As the economy has improved, home values have started to rise and in Texas, all indications are that they will keep going up. That is why investing in a home now is such a good idea.

A Home is an Investment

Some people worry that investing in a home is not a very good idea... what if the real estate market tanks again? They prefer instead to invest in the stock market. Historically, the housing market has outpaced the stock market for gaining wealth.  Even when taking in the recent real estate correction, homes as an investment outperform the stock market.  There are several reasons why investing in a home is such a good idea. First, it is not easy for the property market to plummet in the near future. True, it happen in 2008 but there is industry has been more vigilant since then to make sure that it doesn't happen again. Stocks and shares, on the other hand, plummet overnight and more frequently. Look at what is happening in China right now. Once people panicked and started dumping shares because there was reduced manufacturing, it was like a chain reaction. The more people dumped their stocks the more the stock market fell, affecting markets across the world. That is how easily you can lose your investment.  Investments in real estate...

Granbury Mortgage Interest Rates

Why Granbury Mortgage Interest Rate Rises Concern Shoppers

If you’ve never sat down to look at the numbers, please sit down before continuing…

For a quick example, suppose you were Average American Homebuyer taking advantage of an average American home purchase just this past July. Your family income was a bit higher than the median of $55,000—say, $60,000—so if you went with the lenders’ standard rule that 28% of income is the most a housing budget should allow, that meant $1,400 would be your maximum mortgage payment.

You found a terrific buy—a brand new home at exactly the median U.S....
