Tired of Being Stuck in Traffic?

30 New Yard IMG_0452

Are you tired of being stuck in traffic every day?  I have the home for you – the Cedar Creek Country Club at Cedar Creek Lake.  The Cedar Creek Country Club is a 45 minute drive from downtown Dallas.  That is a quicker commute than driving to Plano.  This pretty home has a fantastic yard for entertaining.  There are two master suites – one downstairs and an even larger one upstairs with it’s own entrance.  A gameroom is also located upstairs.  The upstairs suite would also make a great mother-in-law apartment.  The Cedar Creek Country Club offers their residents a golf course, tennis courts, and a club house that has a restaurant for those who don’t want to cook.

Just How Good Are Interest Rates?

Quote

Who remembers the days of ‘double-digit’ interest rates?  Bruce and I sure do.  We were very young and persuaded into a home loan that ended up being a very bad move.  By the time it was over, we had an interest rate that I don’t even want to think about or say aloud.   Even though it had some consequences that took some time to recover from, we learned alot.  It has made both of us better realtors and our clients certainly appreciate our knowledge and experience.

Just How Good Are Interest Rates?

Rates for a 30-year fixed mortgage have hovered around 4% in the past week after hitting a 12-month high near 5% in November. While those tenths of a percentage point will matter to your clients’ monthly payments and how much they can afford, taking a step back can reveal just how inexpensive homebuying is right now.

Mortgage rates neared 19% in the early 1980s before dropping off by the ’90s and staying under 10% since 1991. During the run-up to the housing crisis, rates for a 30-year mortgage neared 7% before reaching post-crisis lows of 3.31% in 2012.

30-year fixed rate mortgage average in the United States from 1971 till May 2019

Homeowners who have taken out a mortgage in the past decade have been able to borrow at historically low interest rates. More than 80% of households with a mortgage pay between 3% and 5.9% in interest, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2017 American Housing Survey. Nearly 95% of mortgage holders have fixed-payment mortgages.

Shopping around for the best rate will save your clients money, and they can use online tools like from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to examine how rates will impact their monthly payments. But week-to-week fluctuations in mortgage rates shouldn’t obscure how relatively inexpensive borrowing for a home is currently.

May 13-14 Canton Balloon Fest

Quote

HotAirBalloonThe Canton Balloon Fest is ready to turn up the heat for this year’s Hot Air Balloon Festival. On May 13th & 14th, there will be activities for the whole family, right here in East Texas.

The Balloon Fest started at the Thompson Airfield in 2011, and due to the popularity of the event it moved onto the First Monday Grounds in Canton, Texas. The Canton Texas Visitor Bureau now hosts this two day annual event each May. The festival has grown and now includes vendors of all kinds, great food and art vendors showing off their pieces. Family fun activities are abundant with pony rides, bounce houses, climbing wall, car show and the very popular 5K glow run on Friday night. Each year the festival highlights great East Texas Music with a Battle of the Bands competition on Saturday and the event opens on Friday night each year with live music, Balloon Glow and all the vendors. The half marathon is Saturday morning and runners from all over come to compete in this officially sanctioned timed event.

Let’s talk balloons. The stars of the show are all the wonderful Balloons. Not only do they take off each night in a wonderful display of color they are competing in a sanctioned competition by the Balloon Federation of America each morning. The event does have tethered rides (during event) and full Balloon rides (reserved in advance) so make sure to save the 3rd weekend in May each year and enjoy this fantastic festival.

The dog is excited because they are excited.  Grandma and Grandpa are looking forward to fishing.  Dad is excited to get in the boat.  Mom is looking forward to watching the amazing sunrise and sunset.  This is what Life is Like at Cedar Creek Lake.  Call us now and we can make this dream a reality for you and your family.
