New Home Sales Jump Almost 27% Nationally in March!

New home sales nationally have jumped 26.9% in March over February 2010 after a four month slow-down over the winter season. This can be considered evidence that the first-time home buyer and repeat home buyer tax credit have sparked the real estate market. The credit's are set to expire on Friday, April 30th.

Sales numbers are expected to show an even greater increase in April due to a rush of buyer's hoping to take advantage of the credits before time expires. The Standard & Poor's index of 12 of the largest builders showed an increase in stock prices of 11%. The report also showed that previously-owned home sales rose 6.8% in March.

Hopefully, America can get the job market back on track to create more solid growth through 2010 and beyond. Overall, the housing market should stay active through the summer season, as traditionally it is the peak season for sales. The summer is ideal for moving weather conditions, as well as an easier transition for children entering new schools. There is a nice inventory out there and we have some of the lowest interest rates in history, so if you've been thinking about purchasing, there is no better time than now!

Will Ferrell will visit the Dell Diamond in Round Rock!

Will Ferrell, who has starred in films such as Elf, Old School, Anchorman, and Talladega Nights will make a scheduled appearance at the Dell Diamond for the Round Rock Express game on May 6th.  The Express, a minor league baseball team playing out of a suburb of Austin, are scheduled to play the Nashville Sounds at 7:05pm. Ferrell will participate in a VIP reception, interact with fans, speak with the media, and partake in the Express radio broadcast.

will ferrell I.jpgFerrell is in town to host the Will Powered Golf Classic, a golf event for the charity Cancer for College. The event will take place on May 7th at the Cimarron Hills Country Club in Georgetown. Cancer for College was started by cancer survivor Craig Pollard and provides college scholarships to cancer survivors. Ferrell and Pollard had met as students at the University of Southern California and were members of the same fraternity. Ferrell has supported and hosted several events for the organization since it was founded in 1993.

I really enjoyed his film Stranger Than Fiction, which isn't as well-known as his bigger comedies, but if you haven't seen it, check it out. At any rate, if you would like a chance to meet the man who made you laugh through Saturday Night Live and countless comedies, buy a ticket to the Round Rock Express versus the Nashville Sounds scheduled for Friday, May 6th! Can't say that I'll be there, but I'll be there in spirit. Think of me as an angel in the outfield.

Countdown To The Verdict...

In roughly two weeks, around May 1st, the moment everyone has been waiting for will arrive. My wife and I will go to the doctor and have a 3D ultrasound performed and determine the sex of our first child. This is an enormous occasion that only happens a couple times in people's lives. The moment you find out if you're going to have a princess or a cowboy. 

It really makes no difference to me if I have a boy or a girl. All babies look exactly the same. Little Asian kids are the cutest and this is based on statistical research performed on an iPad. I feel that when I married a South Korean woman that I could defeat my family's ugly streak. If we ever had a family reunion people would think the circus freak show train derailed. Either that or they'd get a cowboy to wrangle us back into our cages. I felt that if I had to reproduce, I should take it upon myself to try to save the children and give them half of something beautiful. Everything I do is purposeful and selecting a Korean wife was the best shot I had for a future outside of a cage for my children. 

It would be nice to have a boy laborer to do the yard work and weed my yard which fosters weeds faster than lightning. I swear, I pull one out and two more grow in it's place overnight. Texas has a crazy weed problem. It's nuts! I really am much more open to having a girl now than I was. I am much more ambiguous and I view it as a blessing either way. I cared before, but now I'll be happy no matter what it is as long as he or she is healthy. My wife on the other hand, will literally freak out if a boy shows up on that screen. She has mentally prepared herself for 16 weeks now for a girl. If it's a boy, she won't know how to react.

We were both first-born children and she has a younger brother and I have a younger sister. She, of course, believes that a girl needs to come first to watch over the boy and guide him with wisdom to make the correct decisions. I believe what's needed is physical protection, so maybe a boy should come first. It's why the father gives away the daughter at the wedding. "Please take care of my princess and watch out for her." Women can be strong-willed, intelligent, and intuitive. However, most girl's aren't going to beat up a boy for being mean to her brother unless she looks like the girl in this picture. I'm going to send my daughter to school dressed in something like that everyday. For sure no boys are going to get any ideas. Except for ones who are obsessed with Transformers.....which is all of them. Dang it, no compromise!

Nevertheless, I know when the child comes out, my wife will love it instantly no matter what the sex. I just need to help her to see the positives of having a boy if it turns out that's the verdict. Positive one: free yard work in 3 years. His tiny little hands can get the deepest roots! Don't look at me like I'm a barbarian. You just wish you thought of it first.

American Recovery & Reinvestment Act Credits and Incentives!

These are just a few of the credits detailed in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act that you may not have known about! Claim yours if you're eligible!

Residential Energy Property Credit: This new law increases the energy tax credit for homeowner's who make energy efficient improvements to their existing homes. Improvements MUST be placed into service between 2009-2010 and the credit is for 30% of the cost of the improvement or $1,500 maximum.

Plug-In Electric Drive Vehicle Credit: This is for plug-in electric vehicles purchased after Dec. 31st 2009. To qualify, it must be newly purchased, have at least four wheels, have a gross vehicle weight of less than 14,000 pounds, and "draw propulsion using a battery with at least four kilowatt hours that can be recharged from an external source of electricity." The minimum amount of the credit is $2,500 and the maximum is $7,500. How much you get is dependent on the battery capacity.

Conversion Kits: This provides a tax credit for converting your motor vehicle to a plug-in drive vehicle. The credit is for 10% of the cost of the conversion and it must be placed in service after Feb. 17th, 2009 and before Dec. 31st, 2011. The max amount of the credit $4,000.

COBRA: This is an employer provided health insurance continuation subsidy for workers who involuntarily lost their jobs between Sept. 1st, 2008 and May 31st 2010. Eligible individuals must receive Trade Adjustment Assistance benefits or be between the ages of 55 and 65 and receive pension payments from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. The individual must also be enrolled in a qualified health plan.

There are several other credits, but these are just a few to wet your money saving appetites. Who doesn't like saving money? I don't know about you, but I HATE losing money. It's why I never gamble, play the lottery, or place bets. It stems from when I was about 8 years old and I went to see a movie with my grandparents at the movie theatre. We viewed the film, left the theatre, and got home only for me to realize I was missing my wallet. MY LIFE SAVINGS!

My sister always talks about stuff we did when we were little and I have no recollection of most of it. She has a great memory of the fun things we did and the big events we were a part of. My mind is just about blank when I try to recall the past. However, I do remember losing $64 in a grey and black smokey colored imitation leather wallet at a Cinemark movie theatre when I was 8 years, 3 months, and 17 days old in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Call me crazy, but that scarred me for life and I haven't lost a wallet since.

If anyone found that wallet almost 20 years ago, call the number in the side bar because I want my money back. Factoring inflation, which I calculated, $64 in 1991 is approximately $99.55 today. I expect that amount minus a reward of $3 for bringing it home to daddy. ANYWAYS, back to putting money in YOUR wallets. To make it REAL EASY for you, which is what I'm hired for, here is a "Tax Savings Tool" that can tell you if you qualify for an of the credits in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act:

Information given is considered reliable, but not guaranteed and is subject to change. If you plan to take advantage of the credits offered please go to to research further into eligibility requirements.

How's the market Chris?

One of the most common questions I get in real estate is, "How did you get eyes as blue as the sky?" Well, God gave them to me. He's nice. The other day he told me the secret of how toads got their warts and we laughed and laughed. Then we went swimming and played jokes on each other in the water. God didn't want to get in right away because it was a little chilly, so I tried to pull him in and he just hovered over the surface and walked off the water to shore. Then he parted the waves, walked down into the water valley, grabbed a fish out of the liquid wall and slapped me with it. We shared a good chuckle with that one. He can be quite a creative prankster. I love that guy.

The second most common question is, "How is the market doing?" The answer to this question depends on  whose asking. If you're a buyer, it's phenomenal. There really will not be a better time to buy in our lifetime. Interest rates are at record lows, property prices have fallen dramatically, and the government is offering tremendous incentives. The first part of the investment adage, "Buy low, sell high" is definitely good advice right now.

Real estate is cyclical. If we look at this graph showing median home prices in Austin over the past year, around August 2009 we've seen a continuous drop of about $50,000. It has now leveled out to some degree and I expect it to rise steadily over this summer again, as the summer season is traditionally the most active time for sales. More people want to sell and more people want to buy during the summer. It's warmer and easier for moving and is the optimal time to get your children into a new school.
 If we look at Round Rock things are a little more like falling down the stairs. However, both were trending downward and seem to have reached their bottoms. Round Rock had this kind of temporary level out in November because that's when there was a rush to close on homes before it was announced that the tax credit was extended. More homes sold because there was more scrambling and pressure on the buyer's to not procrastinate and be decisive on a smaller inventory of attractive homes. Hence, the sellers' of those homes were more likely to get what they were asking for. Round Rock has a lower average sale price than Austin, so it was more affordable for the majority of the first-time home buyers.
It is the same case in Cedar Park. Average home prices are lower so we see the same little leveling out in November because of the first-time home buyer prevalence.
Although median home prices have dropped, I expect them to go back up again through the summer, as is typical. Despite single family home prices dropping, properties are still selling. Make no mistake about that. The average days on the market is up, so it may take a little longer to sell your house, but properties are still selling and if the product is good and in a desirable area, we're still seeing homes sell in the first two weeks. The important thing to remember is that although things are a little down from 2006-2007 in the Austin metro area, we haven't seen nearly the drop as the rest of the country. Austin has been resilient to say the least.

Tax Credit Coming To A Close...

In twelve days the deadline for the $8,000 first-time home buyer and $6,500 repeat home buyer tax credits will arrive. You must find a home and get a contract executed by midnight on April 30th to receive the credit, but have until June 30th to close on the home.

Anyone who hasn't owned a home in the past three years is considered a "first-time home buyer." Repeat home buyers do not have to sell their old home before purchasing, but you may not have a choice if you cannot qualify for two mortgages. To receive the credit, the new home does NOT have to be more expensive and you must have lived there for five consecutive years any time during the past eight years. Both credits require yearly income limits for eligibility of $125,000/year for singles and $225,000/year for marrieds filing jointly.

If you have any questions or want to see if you qualify for a loan, don't hesitate to call me today (512) 703-7416. There is still time to get a home. Once you find one that meets your needs, it will take about two days to negotiate and arrive at mutually agreed price and terms and get the contract "executed." That leaves you about 10 days from today to get something in. So "hur' up fo the hogs come'n get it!" Something grandma used to say on her farm growing up. I suppose it's application in this situation isn't exactly a bullseye, but the point is to hurry before some big hog comes out of the woods and eats up all the good properties!

Joining A New Company!

As many of you know, I have recently made the decision to leave Keller Williams Realty and join Horizon Realty. I will deeply miss many of the agent's and co-workers at Keller Williams and I cherish my time spent there. I have no ill-will towards Keller Williams and they provided me with the level of knowledge that helped get me where I am today.

However, I am very excited to join Horizon Realty and the Austin Elite Realty Group, of which I am the 4th member. Although I am with a group, I still have the personalized, one-on-one commitment to all of my clients. Rest assured, you won't be handed to someone else. The group is merely, a team effort to support each other in getting homes sold, and locating the best possible deal for each other's clients. Together, I believe our network and commitment to top-level customer service and expertise of the Austin market will propel us to greater heights.

For present, future, and past clients: Nothing will change, but the business name on my card. I'll always be there for you. I love you. You are my all. If we were on the Titanic and you were Kate Winslet and I was Leonardo DiCaprio, I would pencil you on my sketch pad in all your detailed glory. I know you have choices, so thank you for selecting me.

Ultrasound = Ultrareal

See that? I made it. Three cheers for me! My wife and I had our first ultrasound a couple weeks ago and heard our unborn child's heartbeat for the first time. How intense is that? I think, like most men, it is kind of a surreal feeling when your wife first waves that pee-stick in your face and declares she's pregnant. For me, I thought to myself, "Wow, isn't that something. She's pregnant. I wonder when it happened? Is this going to be the end of my life? Are we not going to have spontaneous nights of passion or play Pogs until midnight anymore? I wonder what it'll look like. Asian kids are really cute. Oh, wouldn't twins be awesome? One boy. One girl. Half Asian kids. I hope they'll like Pogs."

That was my entire thought process in one second. Then she was like, "You can't tell anyone for 3 months until we are sure we won't have a miscarriage." I said that was fine and that I didn't want to tell everyone and then have to hear them all say sorry and feel bad for me should something happen. The next day, my wife, who is a teacher, is at school literally waving her urinated-on pregnancy test in the air exclaiming, "MY HUSBAND IS BOUND! I GOT HIM LOCKED DOWN FOR LIFE! HE HAS TO DO WHATEVER I SAY FOR NINE MONTHS AND IF HE DOESN'T I'LL SCREAM AT HIM AND BLAME THE HORMONES! HAHAHA!" No not really, but I think that's what women think at least once during their pregnancy. She was excited and couldn't hold it in. I don't blame her. We show excitement in different ways. She shows it by telling everyone and jumping up and down. I do it by scratching myself, watching Pawn Stars on the History Channel, and treating myself to Oreos and milk. 

Anyways, my point is that men and women may respond very differently to the news at first. My wife was a little panicked that I wasn't jumping around like crazy. I wasn't jumping around because our "trying" was exactly one time and she got pregnant. Jeez. "Just my luck," I thought to myself, but that didn't mean I wasn't excited. Like I said in the beginning, it was a surreal feeling and I didn't know how to react. In the same vein, I think it may sometimes play into how men are raised. Men are taught by society to show limited emotion. Women are exactly the opposite. You want me to leap around a screech with you? Ask society why not. I'd love to substitute my Business Weekly for an US Weekly once in awhile, but I guess that's life. I was surprised and happy, but I wasn't going to leap hand-in-hand with her making synchronized jumps. 

Weeks later when we heard the heart beat it suddenly became real. It was beating at like 170 beats per minute! It was a little flickering dot on the screen, but that moment is a crazy feeling. Never had I felt something like that. It was excitement, anxiety, anticipation, and a little panic all at once. I truly believe it will be a moment you can reminisce back to when your older and pin point it as one of the days where your life took a dramatic turn......but I'm still not doing synchronized jumps. Perish the thought.

In My Day, Tax Credits Were A Nickel!

When this first-time home buyer tax credit deal was first introduced in 2008 it was a $7,500 credit that had to be repaid starting in 2010, $500/year over 15 years and if you move early, you pay all that remained. It was for first-time home buyer's who bought between April 9th 2008 to July 1st 2009. I signed up for this credit and I don't regret that I did, but I think it is ludicrous that when they changed it to a higher amount of $8,000 AND non-repayable, that they didn't retroactively include the $7,500 credit to make it non-repayable as well. I am even more surprised that they didn't change it during the expansion. The old credit's original expiration deadline even OVERLAPPED with the new credit's start date (January 1st, 2009), albeit when the new credit was introduced the expiration for the $7,500 credit became December 31st 2008. This is crazy! They need to either make all of them repayable or none of the repayable. 

I know life's not fair, I realized this when my parents gave me a '92 Chevy Astro extended cab, black cargo van for my first car. It had a bare metal interior ceiling, sounded like an airplane taking off when you accelerated, the back bench folded flat into a bed, not even a tape deck, and the sliding door didn't open from the inside. This is what I had to drive around in high school. Big black vans that have no exit strategy from the inside are not exactly popular with the ladies in that particular period of life. You know how many girls I got? Zero. I would roll up next to a pretty girl and ask her if she'd ever been 0-60 in 33 seconds flat. I would tell her that we could go so fast her hair would whip in the breeze, but I'd have to have the AC on high at the same time or it wouldn't work.... something about aerodynamics. I'm no scientist. The only way I could have gotten girls in that van is if I painted "Free Puppies!" on the side of it. I would rather stand in my underwear and have a group of college cheerleaders point and laugh at me than to relive those moments again.

My point to all this is that Martin Luther King Jr. said, to summarize basically in a nut shell, that things need to be unequivocally balanced and fair. Giving Person 1 a lower amount that he has to return and Person 2 a higher amount that he doesn't have to return for the performance of the same action is undoubtedly unfair. No one has paid back any of the $7,500 yet, so it's a simple fix! But alas, it's the government and they aren't always fair. And hey, I'm lucky I got anything at all. This whole predicament takes me back to when I got my second car.... an eggplant purple '97 Chrysler Town & Country minivan. Upgrade! The ladies pursued like piranhas to fresh meat as I'm sure you can imagine.  

First-time & Repeat Home Buyer Tax Credits Expiring Soon!

In a little over 3 weeks the cut off for executing a contract for the tax credits will arrive. April 30th, 2010 at midnight marks the deadline that buyer's must finish initial price and terms negotiations and execute a contract. They then will have until June 30th 2010 to close on the property. There are two tax credits currently available:

- First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit: Value of credit is $8,000 and does NOT have to be paid back. That is under the condition that the buyer must live in the home for 3 years or the full $8,000 must be repaid. To qualify as a "first-time home buyer" you must have not owned a home in the past 3 years. So, the term "first-time" is not literal.

- Repeat Home Buyer Tax Credit: Value of credit $6,500 and does NOT have to be paid back. That is also under the condition that the buyer must live in the home for 3 years or the full $6,500 must be repaid. You must have lived in your current home for 5 consecutive years anytime during the past 8 years. A common question is, "Does the new home have to be priced higher the your old one?" The answer is no. You also do NOT have to sell your old home before April 30th or June 30th, so don't panic. However, if you cannot qualify for two mortgages, you may not have a choice but to wait for your current home to sell.

In both cases to be eligible, the yearly income must not exceed $125,000/year for singles and $225,000 for married filing jointly. I have been asked many times if I think this will be extended for a second time. I do NOT believe this will be extended again. Last November, we found out about 3 weeks before the deadline that it would be extended and there was a great deal of chatter going on about the extension weeks prior to that. This time I haven't heard anything that would signal another extension. If you are planning to take advantage of this tremendous incentive contact me with any questions you may have. I'm always here to help.

Mortgage Insurance Premiums Rise

Monday (April 5th) marked the increase of mortgage insurance premiums by the Federal Housing Administration. Mortgage insurance premiums on FHA-backed loans will rise to 2.25% of the loan amount from 1.75%. That amounts to an additional $500 for every $100,000 borrowed. On a $200,000 FHA loan, a borrower will now pay $4,500 upfront in insurance costs, compared to $3,500 before. However, these insurance premiums can be rolled into the new loan, just as before.

I see the point of the higher mortgage insurance because the FHA wants to boost reserves and to avoid a possible taxpayer bailout of the mortgage insurance agency. However, this along with other FHA changes this summer (ex. 50% reduction in the maximum amount of seller contributions toward buyer closing costs) and the $8,000 and $6,500 tax credits expiring soon, it’s an abrupt switch from being extremely buyer friendly one month to grandma smacking your hand with a spoon when you reach for seconds.

“Ah-ah-ah, Mr. America. We've stuffed you long enough. You’ve gotten too comfortable and fat. Now we have to limit you and teach you portion control.” With all this money being spent and used to bail out we’re going to be squeezed in the future like a stress reliever man until our eyes pop out. That money the government hands out comes from somewhere, they just want to redistribute it how they see fit.

Babies...with my Real Estate?

My first post on my internet diary. My wife is pregnant with our first child right now, so many of my posts from now until October will probably have a looking-after-a-woman-who-has-never-had-a-football-sized-living-thing-in-her-belly-before type of influence. Forgive me. I wanted to do a real estate blog with a tiny bit of my life mixed in. It’s not my fault I had a birthday and my wife started kissing me suggestively and motion directed me with her eyes to the bedroom and the realm of space and time literally collided to generate an energy proportional in magnitude to the frequency of the radiation it represents.... Literally.

Maybe I should have called this the “Soon To Be A New Dad Blog.” I could have decorated the borders with opposite sides blue and pink and had butterflies and dandies and little boy and girl angels. Maybe some birds and bees having a "happy fight." I didn’t though, it’s too late. I don’t want to go back and create a new one. Two blogs is too much responsibility. Not to mention, I can’t scare away two of the three people reading this blog (the other being my wife) just yet.

I’m not psyched about it, but I need to learn how to wear a papoose and still look cool. Jason Statham and Ed Harris look so cool bald and they're always intense in every character they play. You can’t even picture what they would look like with hair, but probably not as cool and intense. Basically, I want that to be me: cool when it's a challenge to be. Except in reality, you can substitute “bald” with a papoose strap and an infant encompassed within and “intense” with milk puked all over the front of my shirt. Anyways, this is some of what I’m thinking about right now. Million thoughts about babies and how my life is going to become a challenge.

Welcome to my blog!

This is a special blog because it’s mine. And I’m a trendsetter. This blog is not just a blog on real estate, but a blog of my life in real estate where I’ll share real estate news, opinions, life stories, and other tiddley-winks I want to document.

Most likely the majority of this will be free-writing nonsense with a real estate influence. Basically, I’m walking innovation and each footprint I leave is pure ingenuity. Just the other day a random stranger stopped me on the street and said, "Excuse me sir, I want to emulate your essence." I have no idea what that means, but it's for sure a good thing. Anyways, share with your friends and family!
