college station: For Renters: Remember These Points! - 04/21/14 02:58 AM
When your budget is tight there are lots of things to consider when you’re renting.  The actual rent is important, but so are energy efficiency, average utility bills, length of commute, renter’s insurance, and pets.   
 
Renting an apartment on the top floor of a walk-up, for example, might get you a break on the rent.  However, if you find out your electric bill is hundreds of dollars more than the tenant on the first floor because your air conditioner is working overtime, the savings quickly disappears.
 
Opt for an apartment in a newer complex to keep your bills down.  … (0 comments)

college station: Parks in College Station - 01/17/14 08:56 AM
One of the great things about College Station is our abundance of pretty parks.

 
The Wolf Pen Creek District is a popular area, and there are several condominiums very close to it. Woodstock, Wood Brook and Cripple Creek condos are all near enough to walk to it.

You can stroll one of the paved trails with dozens of other locals.

Walk your dog or go to an event at the amphitheater!

This park is easily accessible from Dartmouth Street in College Station. There's plenty of parking, too!

college station: Military Relocation Professional Certification - 01/04/14 03:59 AM

This morning I completed the final steps to earn the National Association of Realtors' Military Relocation Professional certification.
I am really excited about the opportunity to work with homebuyers both on active duty in the Houston area and retiring vets coming home to Aggieland.
As soon as I heard about this certification I registered for it. After working with several homebuyers who used their VA Loan entitlements and needed to move in tight timeframes I knew this would help fill in the gaps in my knowledge. There is a LOT to take into consideration when working with a military homebuyer.

college station: Leasing Season around the corner in Aggieland - 01/02/14 11:31 PM
The College Station leasing season is just around the corner. It is beginning to ramp up now because the spring semester begins in less than two weeks. Transfer students, visiting professors and exchange program participants are trickling into our city to attend Texas A&M University or Blinn College. There is a challenge to find a lease that will last less than 12 months for these renters, but many landlords are happy if the lease can be written so their properties are vacant by September so they can find a new tenant for the entire next school year. 
February is when it … (0 comments)

college station: Northpoint Crossing Construction Making Strides in College Station - 11/08/13 05:24 AM
Anyone who has driven down University Drive recently has noticed some major changes. This is the site of the old Hilton (which was imploded a couple of years ago).

Construction at the intersection, now called Northpoint Crossing, has really taken off. This new development, located at Texas Avenue and University Drive, will have upscale retail stores as well as multifamily residential with over 1900 beds.The resident clubhouse will offer two pools, a fitness facility, terraces & sun decks and access to upscale restaurants.
This new construction is long overdue in Aggieland. This site is just a stone's throw from the Texas … (0 comments)

college station: A Local Metamorphosis - 10/19/13 02:27 AM

The Cripple Creek Condos are undergoing a metamorphosis this year. Super close to campus, the sales price has averaged $63,403 in 2013 and 14 have sold since the beginning of the year.
 

The siding had not been maintained or replaced since they were built over 30 years ago. However, the HOA has started a renovation bonanza and several projects, including replacing the siding, are underway.

The buildings have been updated one-at-a-time so far. First they rip off all the old stained cedar, then they install the Hardyboard. It comes in this light yellow color that you see. … (1 comments)

college station: Major changes in the Cripple Creek Condos neighborhood - 10/17/13 07:20 AM

The Cripple Creek Condos in College Station are undergoing major renovations. All the exterior siding is now gone. The old stained cedar has been ripped off and the new Hardyboard is going up, slowly but surely. These condos are very popular with investors and students. This is because they are adjacent to two Texas A&M shuttle stops and are about a 10 minute drive away from campus. Tomorrow I'll post the unveiling of the new, improved look!
