nw austin: Texas Memorial Day Floods - 05/28/15 12:01 PM
I’m sure everyone has heard or read about the heavy rains and massive flooding in Texas. We have been in a serious drought for 5 years and praying for rain. Our prayers have been answered and then some!
 
There are those who’ve lost their lives and families whose homes are destroyed and possessions vanished. The American Red Cross has expanded its relief efforts and mobilized volunteers, vehicles, food and relief supplies to help the thousands of people impacted by these storms. They depend on financial donations to provide shelter and food, and they’re asking for the public’s help now. Donations can be … (20 comments)

Handsome Hudson came running into our home on Memorial Day with his arms raised saying "Nana, we are here...we are here!"  With a big heartfelt hug he was ready to let the fun begin!  He wore proudly his red, white and blue shirt and shorts to celebrate the day.
Pa-Paw was in the Navy on a submarine to the Arctic Circle and shared with Hudson a framed plaque...Hudson was excited to hear about submarines!
It was a good thing Hudson insisted on getting in the pool right away as we were able to spend an hour swimming before the heavy rains descended on … (23 comments)

Our office landlords (CBRE) encourage their tenants to interact building a closer knit community. One event they sponsored in May to encourage networking was showcasing artwork of students aged 9-16.
In April, Kathryn Yu Art Classes held an outdoor drawing session by the Arboretum fountain in NW Austin. The 48 students were free to choose their own subjects to draw, but each sketch had to be completed in less than two hours. Their tools were pencil, brown or gray toned paper, white chalk and pen (optional).
 
12 finalists were chosen and are displayed in our office building from Thursday May 21st to Friday … (14 comments)

Handsome Hudson loves tumbling class!  Last Saturday his little tumbling class had an exhibition for family and friends at 9am.  Unfortunately we made plans for a meet-up in Winchester with friends for lunch, so had to get on the road and couldn't attend.  Aunt Melissa was able to make it and joined daddy, mommy and beautiful Beckett for the show!

nw austin: I might buy in the fall~is it true it will take longer to close? - 05/20/15 02:28 PM
The news is full of CFPB and consumers are starting to ask questions. Just the other day I had a call from someone thinking of buying in the fall and heard closing dates could be taking longer. She wanted to know how much longer.
 
New rules from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau are going into effect August 1. These changes will have a big impact on our clients’ closing documents and procedures.
 
My answer was: As of Aug. 1, REALTORS® are being advised to add 15 extra days to the “close” date.  Here is a simple video that runs through the basics:

nw austin: I want to help my parents ~ Is there a Caregiver Mortgage Available? - 05/20/15 12:46 PM
Clients who want to help their parents have asked me if there is such a thing as a Caregiver Mortgage. Yes there is! It was created by National Family Mortgage of Belmont Massachusetts. This new loan product is fundamentally a private, less regulated version of a reverse mortgage.
 
There have been home purchase loans funded by the buyer’s parents in effect for some time. Now there is a need for a new product where siblings can pool their money to help their elders in a similar way. One mortgage is created with a fractional participation agreement among the individual siblings or “lenders.”
