Attention First Time Home Buyers!
This is the best time for first-time home buyers in Texas to shop for a new house. The Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs has several great programs for qualified first time home buyers. You can even get up to 4% in down payment assistance in the form of a grant from the Federal government. The wonderful thing about grants is they are free money; they don’t have to be paid back.
The real estate market is down from the June/July period a year ago. This makes it a buyer’s market. There are some very nice houses on the market at very good prices. Boot up your computer and start looking at the properties that are for sale and you will be pleasantly surprised at how inexpensive the beautiful Plano homes, Frisco homes, McKinney homes, and Dallas homes are.
Many people worry about saving enough money to make the down payment to buy a house. The government grants are to be used for down payment assistance for new home owners. This subsidy can make the difference between being approved for a home loan and having the opportunity to own your own home. The requirements for the program are not owning a home and being able to be approved for a mortgage. The purchase of a home is one of the most important and largest purchases that anyone will ever make. So many people will never get this chance without assistance in making a down payment.
Attention Texas Veterans!
The State of Texas also offers funding for home purchases to Texas Veterans. The Texas Veterans Mortgage Credit Program waives the first time home buyer requirements and down payments for qualified vets. Vets can purchase land or residential property under the program and be guaranteed a lower interest rate and affordable payments.
Who We Are And What We Do

We can help you to buy or sell real estate anywhere in this great state but our primary area of focus is North Dallas and the communities north of Dallas including, Richardson, Plano, Carrollton, Frisco, Allen and McKinney. The greater Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) area has so much to do and see that it would take many pages to relate all of it, so we have compiled a few of the more notable facets for you on our site.
The whole area is well connected by freeways and toll ways in addition to the public transportation supplied by D.A.R.T (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) and rail transportation is supplied by the ever expanding DART light rail system in Dallas. Air travel is supplied by two area airports, DFW international and Dallas Love Field.
Where is Addison Texas?
Moving up the North Dallas Toll Way you pass through the town of Addison which has become a Mecca for dinning and night life. Addison also is home to the Addison Airport where you will find the Cavanaugh Flight Museum.
Allen Is Great!
Just a bit further north is the town of Allen, home to the Allen Premium Outlets shopping mall.
McKinney is an exciting town
On up central expressway you find McKinney, one of the faster growing communities in Collin County. McKinney has the feel of a small Texas town but all of the amenities that one would expect in a big town. Shopping is a wonderful experience in the McKinney Downtown square where you can hunt for antiques then stop into one of the two wineries, Landon Winery and Lone Star Wine Cellers, for a delightful glass or two of local wine. On the weekend before the third monday of the month pay a visit to Third Mondays Trades Days to shop flea market style. At the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary, you can learn all about the native wildlife in the area. McKinney is also home to the Collin County Regional Airport that is growing just about as fast as the town.
Lets Go to the Lake!
North Texas has a number of lakes as well from Lake Ray Hubbard on the south east side of Dallas to Lake Texoma just about an hour north of the area. In-between you can visit White Rock Lake, Lake Lavon, Lake Lewisville, And Lake Ray Roberts just to name a few.

Bargain Properties >Tips for First Time Investors
When starting out as a real estate investor, you can choose either the conservative approach of holding a property until it increases in value or the riskier approach of "flipping" - reselling very soon after making some improvements that add value. If you plan on taking the safer approach, keep the following factors in mind when searching for the right investment property.
Look for a house or apartment unit that is close to where you live, so inspecting the property and overseeing maintenance will be easier. Choose an area where there is clear potential for future development, and you will benefit from the inevitable increase in property values. If you have the choice of either buying a newly built or recently remodeled home or a less expensive house in the same neighborhood that needs a cosmetic makeover, buy the bargain property and upgrade it for a better long-term return on your investment.
