You’ll learn a lot about home inspections as a first-time homebuyer. Here are a few Inspection 101 questions that your Texas REALTOR® can answer when it’s time to look under the metaphorical hood of your first house.

Who pays for it?
As the buyer, you choose the inspector, pay him directly for the inspection, and the inspection report he generates is yours. If you don’t already have a home inspector in mind, ask your friends and family members for a referral, or your Texas REALTOR® may be able to recommend someone. Whoever you chose must be licensed by the Texas Real Estate Commission.

What does an inspector do?
An inspector will conduct an “objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation,” according to the American Society of Home Inspectors. The inspector will go through the entire house and make note of any damage, need for repairs, or maintenance issues, and then give you a copy of the completed report based on his findings. It’s important to know that there could be defects a home inspector will not find and wouldn’t be expected to find if the defects are in areas with limited or no access.

When should I get an inspection?
Your Texas REALTOR® will discuss including a termination-option period in your contract to purchase the home. This is an amount of time during which you can conduct inspections, negotiate with the seller for repairs, and still have the option to terminate the contract.

Where should I be during the inspection?
You don’t have to be at the property during the inspection, but it’s in your best interest to be there. Your inspector may not mind if you accompany him and ask questions as he checks everything out, but be sure to ask first.

Why should I have this done?
Buying a home is probably the largest investment you will ever make, so you want to know as much as you can up front. A home inspector will point out items that need regular maintenance and identify any problems.

After your inspection is complete, talk with your Texas REALTOR® to determine if there are any issues you want to ask the seller to address before you move forward. A Texas REALTOR® has experience with the home-buying process and will make recommendations that are right for you.

Granzin’s Meat Market adding third location in the San Antonio area
Dec 31, 2014 – San Antonio Business Journal

Granzin’s Meat Market is “beefing up” operations by adding its third full-sized location in the “Gateway To The Eagle Ford Shale.”

The New Braunfels-based chain is building a full-sized meat market at 393 Airport Road in Pleasanton.

Founded in 1981, the family-owned business currently has its original meat market in New Braunfels and another location in Seguin.

Co-owner Gary Granzin spoke to us about the new development in Pleasanton. Granzin said his family originally set up a simple “deer processing” center off Airport Road as a service to hunters. But Pleasanton is experiencing tremendous growth in the retail and housing sectors thanks to the oil boom targeting the Eagle Ford Shale.

Granzin said strong business at the deer processing center and rapid population growth in Pleasanton prompted its decision to open a full-sized meat market there.

The Pleasanton meat market is being built on the same piece of land as the deer processing center and should be open as early as March 2015.

1,500+ Rooftops Planned for Seguin, Texas Update on 299 Acre Greenspoint Development
Seguin, Texas serves as the county seat for the second fastest growing county in the nation, Guadalupe County. According to the US Census, Guadalupe County has seen a 47.75% increase in population from 2000-2010. Guadalupe County has a 154% projected population growth increase from 2010-2040 according to the San Antonio-Bexar County Metropolitan Planning Organization. Seguin also serves as the retail hub for 3 major counties-Guadalupe, Gonzales and Wilson. Seguin is seeing business expansion city-wide, with many nationally known retailers entering, returning and expanding in the market. With Seguin’s abundant growth, Seguin’s housing is booming-with over 1,500+ new single family rooftops planned. This includes: 800+ homes for Mill Creek Crossing by Perry Homes, 382 homes for The Meadows at Nolte Farms by D.R. Horton and 400+ homes for the Greenspoint Development.
One of Seguin’s new major housing developments is Greenspoint. Located along SH46 at Rudeloff Rd., Greenspoint is a 299 acre master planned community on the City’s west side near the NewQuest Properties’ Seguin Commerce Center being developed along IH10. Greenspoint will include more than 400 homes in Seguin ISD.
“We saw it as a great opportunity to invest in Seguin’s growth,” Al Kay, Greenspoint Development investor, said. “We’ve got a lot of room to expand and a lot of interest in what we are doing.” After closing on the property in September, Greenspoint entered into a Public-Private
Partnership with the City of Seguin to install a sewer line. Sewer line construction will be the
first visible sign that development has begun. “We’ll put the sewer project out for bid and a contractor will build it for us,” Harry B. Jewett, development manager/partner for Greenspoint said. “Once we have the sewer line in
place, it opens up the rest of our property for development. The other utility systems are
already in place. We’re in a good spot and we are ready to go.”
“The scale of the Greenspoint Development will allow us an opportunity to craft this property into a very desirable Seguin community,” Jewett continued. “With the amount of acreage
we control, we can develop a variety of residential communities including single and multifamily neighborhoods, garden homes and senior living facilities”. These will have easy access to the commercial businesses planned for the SH46 frontage.
The development is going to incorporate low impact drainage design. “We are trying to incorporate systems in our subdivision design so we don’t end up with a lot of drainage infrastructure,” Jewett said. “We’re going to do that more naturally in a manner that is green and sustainable”. Greenspoint also worked with the City on Seguin’s major thoroughfare plan. An important part of the development agreement is the design of the outer loop parkway.
“The developers of Greenspoint are committed to the implementation of the vehicular circulation pattern that incorporates elements of the major thoroughfare plan for the city,” Jewett said. “This means that the residential and commercial facilities in our development will benefit from the maximum utilization of SH 46 with a planned 200 foot-right-of-way parkway. These two major facilities will create the framework for the pattern of collector streets, neighborhood streets, walkways, bike lanes, parks and open spaces that will be essential characteristics of the final Greenspoint development project.”
The Greenspoint development has a contract with Corner Store. The Seguin Planning and Zoning Commission recently approved the Corner Store’s preliminary subdivision plat for the site at the southwest corner of SH46 and Rudeloff Rd. “The Corner Store is the leading USA based company that is committed to bringing a very high level of convenience service to the traveling public,” Jewett said. “We believe that the facility that they will construct as part of our project will be a model of the most up to date facilities for a convenience store experience.” “We felt that Seguin was a new frontier for all the growth that’s going on,” Danny Welch, Greenspoint Development, marketing, said. “We are excited about Seguin and the new companies coming in here and the chance to bring in some rooftops. We’re looking forward to working with Seguin.”
