bryan real estate: Bryan & College Station Real Estate Recognized as Being Undervalued - 07/21/09 02:38 PM
For the second time in the last five years Bryan and College Station have been recognized as places where real estate is selling for under what the values should be. This means that there are definate bargains here in Aggieland.  Houston was the only other city in Texas that got this designation.  With the prospects of tremendous job growth and undervalued real estate it's a wonderful market to be in.  The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M believe that our appreciation rates will be higher than ever in the next few years.
With higher than ever appreciation values will you make … (2 comments)

bryan real estate: Market Value is Not a One Size Fits All - 07/06/08 12:42 PM
You've seen the web sites.  Find your market value from here!  Know what your home is worth today!  If only it were that easy!  Relying on these mechanisms can make you give up huge amounts of equity or have you market your home for too much money which results in longer market time and typically a lower price.
Market value depends on many parts to an equation.  Square footage, finish out, location, existing roadways, floorplan of your home and the effective age of the property all figure into the analysis.  Even appraisals can be off, so anyone promising you a "instant … (2 comments)

bryan real estate: Buyer Beware! - 06/15/08 03:30 PM
Prospective buyers in Bryan and College Station need to take several things into consideration when looking at homes.  Focusing on resale value from the very start will definately put you in the drivers seat when selling later down the road.  Many buyers come into the market not looking at their purchase from this perspective and suffer later down the road.
Things to consider:
1)  How long do you plan on living in this particular home?  Obviously, plans change frequently, but this is the first thing to consider.  If you are planning on a stay two years or less you may want to rethink … (1 comments)

bryan real estate: Bryan real estate with pools - 09/06/07 03:18 PM
It's always been a question of mine as to why pools haven't taken off here at the same rate that they did when I lived in Houston.  I've been here nine years now and, I believe, I've answered my question.  Our typical ages for homeownership are very different than the rest of the United States are.  We, basically, have three groups.  We have the folks coming back here for retirement.  Mostly they don't want pools.  For them it's a liability.
We have the college crowd. (whether graduate student, professor,associate professor, etc..)  These folks have a wealth of opportunity at their fingertips.  Want a great … (9 comments)

bryan real estate: Bryan's Floodplains Extended - 08/11/07 10:36 AM
Bryan City Engineers recently revamped outdated floodplain maps.  FEMA requires flood maps to be revised periodically.  Approximately 10% of Bryan (around 2700 acres) now lies in floodplain.  180 homeowners were notified that their homes lie within the 100 year floodplain, the area that has a 1% or better chance of being flooded each year. 
Help is on the way for residents newly identified as living in the floodplain as Bryan is part of a FEMA incentive program that will give 5% discounts for flood insurance.
Though I don't know of anyone happy about being identified as in the floodplain, these residents can sleep a  bit better at night … (6 comments)
