Here in Katy August 11, 2014 is being celebrated as another unofficial National Day being National Presidential Joke Day. No this is some dark comment on any President being a joke at all. This is a day to celebrate the sense of humor of our Presidents.

 

On August 11, 1984 President Ronald Reagan while doing a microphone test told a joke when he thought the microphone was off. After that this Day became an unofficial Presidential Joke Day.

 

I could not find on YouTube the actual recording of this faux paux by President Reagan but I did find several other jokes The below video is of the President telling the three leg chicken joke.  

 

I thought a little humor was in order today after my post yesterday about billions of passwords being stolen by a Russian crime mob.

Buyer’s Own a Home only after Closing and Funding in Katy
Robert (Bob) Gilbert, Your Katy TX Real Estate Expert (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties)

Buyer’s Own a Home only after Closing and Funding in Katy

 

Recently, many questions have arisen from buyers asking various types of questions concerning their ability to live in a home or move personal effects into a home or both prior to closing  and loan funding. Title to any home pasees from seller to buyer once the closing mountain of documents have been appropriately signed by all parties including the HUD 1 and loan has been funded by the lender and Title Company can verify receipt of funds. If the transaction is a all cash purchase then when the buyers funds are received into the Title Company's account plus the paperwork is completed title will pass.

 

Most folks will tell me this so elementary and it is a basic situation. However, l recently we have experienced both buyers and agents who have no clue or pretend they do not know when title passes. In my mind it is really sad fact of life here in Katy there are agents who do not grasp this very simple and basic concept.



A seller cannot allow a buyer to move into a home early and or move personal effects into the home before closing and funding. The simple fact is there are numerous liability issues present. The State of Texas does allow a buyer and seller to agree on a Temporary lease arrangement. This agreement is similar to any other home lease arrangement except the agreement is much shorter in length. The Temporary lease allows the buyer to move in no more than 90 days prior to closing.  The seller who now becomes a landlord will still have title, tax  and liability issues concerning the home. The buyer will need to obtain insurance to cover their personal effects. This temporary lease is NOT an option if a buyer is purchasing a new home from a builder.

 

A builder cannot and should not allow any buyer to to live in or move personal effects into any home until it closes.

Silver Ranch Homes for Sale Katy TX

 

Silver Ranch Location


Front of Silver ranch

 

Silver Ranch is a Master Planned community located in the west section of South Katy., I personally think it is one of those hidden gems of a neighborhood as it seems not many folks have heard of it Silver Ranch’s main entrance  is located on off of Spring Green Road right across from Pine Mill Ranch which is another unheralded family neighborhood. The newest section of Silver ranch that just opened is west of Spring Green off of Roesner Road.

 

Silver Ranch like numerous other katy neighborhoods is physically located in an incorporated area which all have a Katy mailing address. The beauty of living in these various neighborhoods as many such as Silver ranch have a small town feel but are not that far away from Houston which I believe now is the third largest city in the Nation. My guess is that Silver Ranch is about 25 - 30 Miles almost due west of downtown Houston. These unincorporated areas in Katy encompass a huge geographic area.

 

Why do so many Folks want to live in Katy and Silver Ranch?

 

The entire area of the City of Katy and all the numerous Master Palnned communities have virtually anything a family would want in terms of events, shopping, medical facilities, excellent schools, ease of navigating through the entire area, proximity to Houston, employers in the area or fairly close by, excellent schools, hobbies and sporting events for all ages and the list goes on and on. One of my main themes I write about is the fact that katy has something for everyone. Silver Ranch is centrally located in the south western section of unicorparated Katy and is a special family neighborhood.

 

What Schools will the Children Attend?

 

Silver ranch is in the Katy ISD system. Residents are currently attending Woodcreek elementary school, Woodcreek Junior High School and in the fall 2013 the brand new Tompkins High School.  I wrote a blog about the naming of the new high school which can be found here. In my personal opinion,  I think Tompkins will be another highly rated High School in the katy ISD system.

 

 Are there New Homes to Buy in Silver ranch and if so Who are the Builders?

 

The answer is yes there are new homes available for sale in Silver Ranch. The Builders are David Weekley Homes, Brighton Homes and Meritage Homes. A summary of the builders can be found here. The homes are mainly two story homes with a few one story homes mixed in for balance. The builders advertise homes start from the $150,000 and I know some of the homes are priced in the mid $300,000’s.

Are ther Resale Homes Available in Silver Ranch?

 

The answer is yes but the available inventory is very low right now. The Houston MLS system is indicating there are only 5 homes available in Silver ranch and two are new homes built bt Meritage. The prices range from a low of $248,201 for a 3 bedroom home to $344,000 for a six bedroom home. The median list price is 4276,640 which equates to $91.34 per sq. ft. The median days on the market is very low at 5 days.

 

What type of Amenities are available in Silver Ranch?

 

Silver Ranch is a family oriented neighborhood that offers many amenities to its residents. The various variety of state of the art facilities include a Six lane Pool, Splash Pad, Tennis Court, Playground with Swing set, Outdoor BBQ Pavilion and Walking or Jogging Trails. Silver ranch similar to all the other other master Planned Communities in the area has an active Homeowners Association.

 

I would be very happy to get the opportunity to show you this beautiful neighborhood in Katy Tx. in person and explain why it is such a great place to live.  AS I mentioned above I live in Grand Lakes.

We want to Eliminate all the bath tubs in our new Home. Should we do it?
Robert (Bob) Gilbert, Your Katy TX Real Estate Expert (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties)

We want to Eliminate all the bath tubs in our new Home. Should we do it?


I received this question today from a client who is building a new home in Katy Texas. This is not the first time this  issue has come up as I had clients last year who pondered the same issue. The homes in questions all have at least 3.5 baths and the comments I hear over and over from buyers is “No one these days takes a bath.My clients concern today is if they eliminate all the tubs will they have a problem with resale when the day comes to move again.

It is my impression bath tubs are becoming passe and more folks are opting out of having tubs or cutting back on the number of tubs in the other bathrooms besides the master bath. I have even had clients who want to eliminate the tub in the master bedroom since as they said to me no one ever takes a bath as who has the time plus who wants to sit in their own dirt. These days with the increased emphasis on watching out for germs and bacteria taking a shower makes a whole lot of sense. I do recognize some folks like to just sit in the tub loaded with hot water and relax.

Traditional Bathroom with tub




In our home we have a whirlpool tub in our master bathroom but I really cannot remember the last time someone actually got inside the tub to use it. i have soaked my feet by sitting on the edge and filling the tub with hot water. I have no recollection as to the last time my wife uased the tub.


My wife and I discussed this morning and agree that tubs appear to be on the way out. She also said some folks have a mental block which tells them a home has to have a tub.  I personally do not as a Realtor believe it is the correct point in time to to eliminate all the tubs in ny given home. My opinion is that maybe 5-10 years from now tubs will be a forgotten part of bathrooms.


My advice to my client being what i termed a hedge
( I use to work in the oil trading business) was for them to consider leaving at least one tub in the other bathrooms. I just saw an E-mail to the sales counselor telling her they had decided to leave half the bathrooms with a tub and the other half without any tubs. Good compromise in my mind and they still get the look and functionality they want.

Consumers and Real Estate and related professionals what do you think about the tub issue? I know there is no right answerand if I or my wife could predict the future we would be playing oil market options and retire to a nice little home right on the ocean.


We want to Eliminate all the bath tubs in our new Home. Should we do it?

Katy ISD Winter Holiday Break Schedule
Robert (Bob) Gilbert, Your Katy TX Real Estate Expert (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties)

Katy ISD Winter Holiday Break Schedule


Yes Moms and Dads it is almost time for the winter break to begin for Katy ISD and other school districts all around the area. It is also time for the parents who live in Katy Texas to think of and implement something for these children to do while they are off from school. Children these days in my opinion spend way too much time playing on a computer, IPad or whatever, sending text messages, flipping constantly between TV stations and as they say these days just straight up chillin!

Merrell Center Katy ISD




On Friday December 21, 2012 the Katy ISD Winter Holiday Break will begin with early dismissal . The Elementary schools will be open from 8:20 AM until 12:40 PM while the High Schools and Junior High Schools will be holding court from 7:30 AM until 11:35 AM.


This is the end of the first Semester and grades should follow in the mail. If I remember correctly the grades arrive right before the break is over.




The Winter Holiday Break will end on Tuesday January 8, 2013 with resumption of normal class schedules. Teachers will be on hand  at the schools on Monday January 7.


Good luck to all the parents out there who will grapple with trying to find and get their students to do something productive this Winter Holiday Break.
