Why You Should Consider Selling in the Winter

Selling In Winter Attracts Serious Buyers

The season you sell your home can have an impact on how much you get for your home and how quickly it sells. The season that has the most success in selling homes is spring. This is a good time of year for families moving to new school districts and is also more convenient weather for moving. Because of this trend, most people will recommend waiting to list your home until after the winter is over. Avoiding the winter is a huge misconception in the housing industry and can cause homeowners to miss out on opportunities.

Selling in the winter can give you a few advantages. There will be fewer houses on the market since most people assume winter is a bad time to sell. This gives your home more attention. Potential buyers are always looking no matter the time of year. Keeping...

Will Increasing Mortgage Rates Impact Home Prices?

Will Increasing Mortgage Rates Impact Home Prices?

There has been some discussion recently on home prices in relation to mortgage rates. Some believe if there is a rapid rise of mortgage rates, home prices should decrease. Logically it makes the most sense for the price of the house to drop when interest rates are rising, but this is not always the case.

This theory of home prices decreasing is typically discussed by future home buyers. As a buyer you would like to think if you are paying higher rates on your mortgage, you should be able to see a decrease in cost somewhere else. Unfortunately, these rates are rising because the economy is in better shape. As the economy succeeds, incomes rise, rates go up, as well as the price of the home.

A recent study by the John Burns Real Estate Consulting found mortgage rates have...

The Menger Hotel in Downtown San Antonio

      The Menger Hotel is touted as one of the most haunted hotels in the United States. Lucky for all paranormal investigators (and foodies!), the Sisters Grimm provides a highly awarded Dinner and Ghost Tour. The history of the Menger, however, is much more than hauntings. The hotel was constructed in 1858 by William Menger, a German immigrant who built it as an expansion of his brewery (no joke) and boarding house. His gamble paid off and the Menger was the most well known hotel in southwest by the1870s. The hotel hosted Ulysses S. Grant in 1880 as well as Theodore Roosevelt - the most historical of his visits being the use of the hotel bar to recruit  Rough Riders for the Spanish-American War in 1898. Other historical guests include Oscar Wilde, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Robert E. Lee, and a slew of others. However, besides historical personalities, the Menger is also said to be host to 32 different spirits. Sallie White is one of these spirits, a maid who was killed by her husband and then laid...
