seconded... sounds like disguised advertising to me.

A new house for $100K... I'd have to wonder what direction the neighborhood would be heading in from day 1. Keep track of how many houses are bought by investors before making any big decisions there.

How can I find out if investors are swooping in and buying? I don't want to be surrounded by rentals, but I don't want to be up to my eye-balls in debt either.

Since you've done a lot of research
why don't you go ahead and tell us what other deals you've found in that area (prove that you don't work for them)

Thanks for the link.... LOOKS GOOD! They pay up to $5000 towards closing cost and you get the tax credit, like with all builders. I have toured there model home at Caprock subdivision...(New Braunfels).

I get accused of being a salesman for Sony, Toyota, and other companies ... I guess when I make up my mind I get brand allegiance... right now I am liking the benefits that I am finding with Main Street Homes (per my first post).

Keep the links coming though... this is a BIG decision and I don't want to missing something outside of my [SIZE=2]peripheral.[/SIZE]

FYI - the link to my business was deleted above by the moderator. It proves I do not work for Main Street...

Giving a tour or taking a tour? Sounds like a sales pitch to me. After all the problems that have been published about people losing thier houses in foreclosure, how can anyone consider owing more than a house is worth when you walk out of closing?
Read the small print carefully, or sign a new lease and keep renting.

You can't forget that Uncle Sam is kicking in $8000 tax credit for first timers... That helps out. Then as I stated in my first post, they will up to 6 months of payments if laid off.

Man, do I wish that applied to all of us....we are in the process of buying our third home and we don't get ca-ca from anyone for our contribution to stimulating the economy..... Where is MY piece of the "everybody gets something" pie????

FYI, you have to wait about 3 months after closing and get your taxes fixed to get the money.

Paka - Some people wanted to give $15,000 instead of $8000
do a search on the internet and you'll see.
