Breakdown of the Show
- In the first segment I talk about some of the lease fraud happening in Houston. If you find a home to rent online (craigslist, etc) and the owner is out of town and asks you to wire the first month’s rent, it might be a scam. Meet your landlord or check them out. Don’t be scammed! If you can’t meet the landlord before leasing a home, have representation! Another problem for renters is if the landlord is paying his mortgage.As of May (the latest numbers from the MLS), Houston is having their 12th consecutive growth of sales. Inventory is at it’s lowest level in over 5 years.
- Jeff Wong and Jack Haymes join us for two segments. Jeff is in sales with Green Eco Builders. Jack Haymes is a Realtor with Register Real Estate Advisors. Jeff talks about how the energy efficiency of green technology fits nicely into the Houston lifestyle.
- Jay Richardson, Register Real Estate Advisors’ expert on foreclosures, joins us to talk investment in distressed properties.
- In the last segment, I talk about the President’s proposal to Congress for a program to offer refinancing to homeowners on their mortgages. See below for more information.
