Katy’s Tollway Is On Its Way to Sealy

We are seeing many new home developments pop up between Katy and Sealy.  This growth is leading to talk about expanding our highway systems to allow for the increase in traffic.  The Texas Department of Transportation has begun preliminary planning for 2 additional lanes on each side of I-10, which would begin at Highway 6 and end in Sealy.  Before these plans go any further, funding and public feedback will be needed.  As soon as we receive additional information on this development we’ll pass it on.

Why do Home Buyers LOVE Katy, TX?

By being a Katy, Texas, Realtor, my team and I have the privilege of working with many buyers relocating to the Houston area from not only all throughout the United States but worldwide.   Do you know what drives these buyers to Katy?  The number one priority on a buyers mind is SCHOOLS.  This isn’t just a top priority of families moving to Katy, Texas.  Overall, the majority of buyers whether they have kids or not see the importance in living a community with award winning educational facilities and educators.  Katy’s premier schools go hand in hand with a safe community and a booming economy, and as you know this helps to keep property values high.

On November 5th, Katy Voters will decide on the Katy ISD Bond.  This is a $99 million dollar proposal which would fund an agriculture complex, STEM Center, and a new stadium.  If this bond passes, the tax rate will not increase for Katy Tax Payers.  In short, Katy’s growth and the new revenues that have come from this, make any tax increase unnecessary.

Home Town USA

Our team has the opportunity to work with many out of state and international cliental.  Most who are moving to Houston.  The top questions on their mind is:  Why live in the Katy/Richmond/Fulshear area?

This is one of my all time favorite questions.  You have probably heard me say.  People work in Houston but they LIVE in Katy….

What’s not to love?  Premier Communities, Top Rated Builders, A Safe Family Environment, Award Winning Schools,  I could go on and on….In short….It’s small town feel meets big city appeal!

Location! Location! Location!

 

 

 

The Drama of The Fiscal Cliff and The Results for the Katy/Houston Area

I’ve received many calls this week at my office regarding the recent agreement the US Congress made which avoided “The Fiscal Cliff”. The majority of these questions focused on how H.R. 8, the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, is going to affect our Real Estate markets.
