killeen: Texas...Real Estate's Rainbow - 07/31/10 07:11 AM
I ran across this article today and found it very informative.  If you are considering a move to the Fort Hood Area, or anywhere in Texas, you might find it interesting as well. 
Texas Real Estate: A Hot Spot For Us Real Estate Out of all the predictions made in regards to the United States economy and real estate scene, many believe that Texas will serve as a hot spot when it comes to buying a house. This means that both buyers and sellers should keep their ears to the ground in regards to the real estate boom that is taking … (0 comments)

killeen: Citizen's Police Academy - 03/28/09 06:03 PM
Are you looking for a way to get involved in the community that is both fun and informative.  Check with your local police department to see if they offer a police academy for citizens.
Last year I went through a 12 week course at the Killeen Police Department called the CITIZENS POLICE ACADEMY.  The course included weekly presentations by officers, detectives, and supervisors on topics ranging from Criminal Investigation, Gangs, Organized Crime, Police DoTraffic, Gangs, Illegal Drugs, and the list goes on.  It's amazing how much there is about the police department that we, as citizens, are not aware of.  Included … (1 comments)

killeen: ribbon cutting done...now we sleep - 02/26/09 12:58 PM
Well, we made it through our Killeen chamber of commerce ribbon cutting and it was a real success.  We probably had 65 to 70 people, more than a dozen of which were realtors from other companies.  I didn't think that was too unusual until one of the chamber ambassadors was talking to me afterward and said something I found very interesting.  He said that he goes to a lot of ribbon cuttings for real estate companies and there are never "competing" realtors in attendance.  He said most companies don't invite other realtors to their function. 
Maybe I'm an idealist, but this makes no … (6 comments)

killeen: Casa Realty Ribbon Cutting - 02/24/09 12:58 PM
Good evening, everyone.  It's late and I've been running sice early today preparing for our office ribbon cutting/open house on Thursday.  It's not that we're a new company, but like the married couple who missed their honeymoon, we never had a ribbon cutting and after 10 years, and our latest move, we thought it about time.  So here I sit, after days of planning, much of today shopping, and getting ready to prepare the food Wednesday evening (still have to sell houses during the day) I think I'm just about ready.  On the one hand, I'm excited, (though maybe not so … (5 comments)

Are you thinking about selling your home or are you selling your home by owner? Buyers are here and I need inventory. My name is Richard W. Overall, Jr and I am a Realtor at Casa Realty in Killeen.

The fact that more houses have gone under contract than have sold indicates that the market is picking up, at … (0 comments)

killeen: Killeen Homes For Sale - 02/04/09 09:39 AM

Hood, TX area, give me a call.  I am a local REALTOR with over 8 years experience serving the needs of first time military home buyers.  I help them reach their goal of home ownership.  With BAH levels starting at $950 per month and going up to $1744 per month (with dependents), why wouldn't you buy a home and let Uncle Sam pay for it?  You have to live somewhere so either you're paying someone else's mortgage or you can pay your own.  Additionally, when purchased correctly, … (1 comments)

Good morning, Rainers.  For any of those of you that have nothing else to do today, Dennys has free Grand Slam breakfast until 2pm today.    Free Breakfast...or Lunch if you get there soon.  I went this morning with visions of hot pancakes and eggs...oh, and don't forget all the pork products.  Lo and behold, I get there and there is a line for days.  So now I have to ask myself, is it worth waiting all morning to save $5 or do I go ahead to my regular haunt and have the $3.95 breakfast special.  Hendersons (local restaurant) here I … (2 comments)

killeen: WRONG - 01/17/09 04:36 PM
"I was in the army so I am guaranteed a home loan by the VA" - WRONG
This is a common misconception about VA guaranteed loans and something we come across often in the Fort Hood area.  While it is true that the VA Guaranteed loan is a benefit available to active-duty military and military veteran buyers; the guaranty is to the lender, not to the veteran buyer, and qualifying for the loan, though much less stringent, is still required.
 The VA Guaranteed loan program was created as part of the GI Bill of Rights in 1944.  The idea was to … (0 comments)

killeen: Elvis slept here...Killeen, Texas. - 01/06/09 04:24 PM
 
This is my first post ever, not only on ActiveRain, but anywhere, so please be kind...
For nearly six months in 1958, Elvis Presley was stationed at Fort Hood while completing basic and advanced military training.  He left an entertainment career, where he was at the top of his game, to serve his country as a tanker.  What a great American. 
While Elvis was at Fort Hood, he lived with his parents on Oak Hill Drive in Killeen, a small town right outside the base.  I grew up in Killeen and the fact that Elvis once lived here was a part of … (3 comments)
