Serenity Ranch

Serenity Ranch in Paige Texas is for sale

Offered for sale approx 60 acres.  Great mix of pasture and wooded areas to support livestock and encourage wildlife.  Three established stock tanks have been strategically placed to allow for fencing and cross fencing to create three 20 acre pastures with a tank. Currently it is is cross fenced in one 20 acre pasture up front and the remaining 40 open in the back ( but the corners are in for cross fencing! )  The property has been well maintained with regular shredding, and grooming.  This has been a getaway for a couple from the Houston area for many many years.  It is with regret they are selling it as they have loved making it their second/vacation/getaway but time keeps marching on!  There is a mobile home under a very large pole barn.  Believe it or not the roof of this  home has never seen the light of day or a drop of rain.  Just as the property has been well maintained so has this retreat.  It may not be at the height of interior decorating ( no granite or tile lol ) but is is quite comfortable and would make a great place to settle in while a new custom Texas ranch home is being built.  There is a substantial well that provides water and septic is needed.   Electric services are in place.  TV and Internet Services will need to be via one of the available satellite companies.   If you would like to see this Paige Ranch please call me for your private showing at 512-743-0516.

Are you a candidate to do a 1031 exchange?

This morning we had a class with Carl Pikus of IPX – Investment Property Exchange.  He spent an hour familiarizing us with how IPX can provide 1031 exchange solutions nation wide.    A 1031 Exchange can offer Sellers relief from capital gains tax which can be 15-25% depending on the situation.  I have my Selling Clients contact Carl to discuss the savings. And to identify IPX as the qualified intermediary to handle the 1031. Then in the purchase contract as we identify that the property is  participating in an IRC 1031 tax deferred exchange.   People always want to know what they can exchange  ad one rule of thumb is “if you don’t live in it you can probably exchange it”.  And what can you exchange to?  Anything you don’t live in!  So anything in the Domestic USA, that is real property with a qualified use such as investment or in trade or business.  The 180 day rule is that the replacement property must be purchased by that time.  The 45 day rule is that the Exchanger must identify  potential properties ( generally 3) within that 45 days.   If you have investment properties that you are considering selling please call me.  I would love to help you with a 1031 Exchange so you don’t have to write Uncle Sam a big nasty check when you close!

Rockne Museum

Do you know how Rockne was named?

Yesterday I was out in Rockne TX taking a picture of a home that is about to close for one of my Buyers.  Cute little vintage home!

Home recently sold in Rockne TX

While I was in the area I took a few minutes to stop in the Rockne Museum.  I had driven by it for many years always in a hurry.  Yesterday I made myself stop and I was so glad I did.

There are some amazing old buildings that have been reconstructed and moved there.  I enjoyed walking around them and thinking on how life must have been back in those days.

Then I headed over to the Hilbig Museum which was closed to see what the hours were and that is where I saw a bust of Newt Rockne.  Unfortunately my picture didn’t turn out of it ( drat I have to go back lol).  That is how I learned that Rockne got it’s name from the kids that were attending the Sacred Heart school back in 1931.  They were given the opportunity to vote on a name and they voted to name it after Rockne as he had recently perished in a plane crash.  Who knew!
