Houston Realtor & Houston MLS

December 3rd, 2010



Yet another Holiday Season is upon us.
Do you feel the mad rush of excitement when you drive through the Galleria area?
A ton of Houstonians are finding the deals of a life time right now.
It amazes me how efficient the Houston MLS internet site is compared to a lot of multiple sites around the country.  For example you can search only for foreclosure homes or look for homes by price per square footage criteria.
If you are an investor these are terrific tools that can help you narrow your search.
Combine the power of the Houston MLS with low interest rates and many folks are discovering the power of leveraging money to their maximum benefit. 
A recent client got a low interest rate of 3%, that's practically giving away money.
In all the excitement of the holidays comes the added bonus of saving your property taxes by a whopping 20%.  If you close before the end of the year your 2011 property taxes for your main residence will drop by 20% based upon your Homestead Exemption.
This is a one page application provided by the closing agent at the closing table.
So take advantage of your 20% discount and call your agent now to find your dream home or take advantage of the low interest rate and find some rental properties.
Until  Next Time.
Good Home Hunting.
