Affordable Homes in Seguin, Texas

We had some affordable houses on the Seguin Board of Realtors tour today that would made great investment opportunities.  The tour started near the Seguin-Guadalupe County Library on Humphreys Street and then across Austin Street near Our Lady of Guadalupe Church.  The third house was in Sunset Village, West of the Fairgrounds and with quick access to Hwy 46, Texas Lutheran University, and the upcoming Caterpillar plant.  The final home was North of Seguin at the corner of Huber and Link Rd. in Navarro School District with easy access to New Braunfels and Seguin.

Agriculture Exemption Requirements Change in Guadalupe County

The Guadalupe County Appraisal District recently made changes to the Agriculture Exemption requirements. Please request a complete copy of the new changes if this might affect you:
Guadalupe County Appraisal District
Metro: (830) 303-3313
Fax: (830) 372-2874
3000 N. Austin St.
Seguin, TX 78155

According to the Guadalupe Co. Appraisal Dist., “To qualify for special agricultural appraisal, the owner of agricultural land must have a sufficient number of acres to support 3 animal units for a minimum of 6 months in a typical year. This minimum standard means that the land area must produce enough food to sustain 3 cows with calves at their side, during the normal growing season without requiring supplemental feeding.” There are changes in the degree of intensity standards. For example a cow/calf operation must have a minimum of 3 cows bearing 2 calves a year. Stocking rates are expected to correspond to the carrying capacity of the land. However, they may not fall below the minimum standard. For land with a residence to qualify in size for ag exemption, it must have 10 acres plus an acre for the home. The primary use of the 10 acre tract must be agricultural.

If this might affect your taxes, please be informed! Pick up a complete packet from the Appraisal District.

Investors needed to buy Foreclosure and Short Sale Properties!

Are you interested in making investments in real estate? Are you looking for a second home or a rental prospect? Then check out our Foreclosure page. There have been some interesting classes lately on “How to Buy Foreclosures” and “Secrets to Successful Short Sales”. If you are an Investor and are interested in buying foreclosures or short sales, then give us a call. The best way that I can help you find a great deal is to have you ready to buy. Short Sales are properties that are Pre-Foreclosure. Banks are not in the business of owning properties. They do not want to foreclose, so often times are willing to negotiate a 20 to 30% discount on the tax appraised value. A homeowner does not want to be foreclosed on because they take a 300 point hit on their FICA score, so they are often relieved to be out of the home without foreclosure.
I have lots of information to share on how to succeed in these transactions. I look forward to hearing from you!
