Proguard Storage Rentals Market to Parents of Newborns

Proguard Self StorageTexas storage space rental company Proguard Storage has five different locations around Houston and has just begun promoting its self storage rental options for expecting parents and parents of newborn and young children. Proguard Storage has appealing facilities as well as convenient moving assistance and special discounts for new customers and is aiming to prove to its new clients just how accessible and helpful storage space rentals can be.

According to one of Progurad’s Storage Facility Managers Blenda Stapleton, “Expecting parents and parents of newborn infants often find themselves suddenly faced with a new home renovation project when it comes to designing and organizing a nursery room. Young families often don’t have a lot of extra rooms at home, so they realize that they need to convert an office, guest room, or another room that’s already in use, and buy a crib, changing station and other furniture.”

“That process usually leaves behind a lot of extra furniture and other items that a growing family doesn’t have room for elsewhere in their home. At Proguard Storage, we offer our top-of-the-line climate control storage units as an ideal solution for new parents who are pressed for space,” Stapleton added.

Home renovations for a new baby can be difficult and usually call for purchasing new furniture, repainting and redecorating, blocking outlets, installing child-locks, etc… New parents may get frustrated when reorganizing and deciding where to put things and how to accommodate for the extra furniture. For customers like that, Proguard Storage advertises storage rental as a perfect solution. Clients are able to choose climate control storage units in a facility for however long they need it.

Proguard also has a vast array of advanced security measures to make sure whatever you have stored is safe at all times. All of the five locations also have well-lit interiors and exteriors, on-duty managers, video surveillance, security fences and heavy-duty slip-in cylinder locks. In addition to that, most of the locations feature individualized unit door alarms that alert managers directly of any suspicious activity.

New Rent Program Guarantees Investors 2 Years of Rent

Texas Investor Homes
A new program from Texas Investor Homes guarantees two year’s rental income on brand new homes in Texas. This allows real estate investors to now have their rental income guaranteed for two years regardless of occupancy. In addition to that, prices start at $97,500 for a 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath fully equipped brand new home that includes property management as well as tenants.

Ron Black of Texas Investor Homes has developed a solution to the management problem of what he calls “tenants and toilets”. Black works with a lot of new home builders in key markets in Texas in order to provide an all new turn-key, two-year program for real estate investors that are interested in buying turn-key Texas real estate rental properties.

According to Black, “We have solved the long distance investor problems of buying and managing rental real estate outside of your home market. Our program includes everything: Fully equipped brand new homes at an affordable price, tenant placement, lending resources and property management. Plus, we go one step further and have the builder actually guarantee the rental income for a full two years. You no longer need to manage a rental property in your back yard to achieve high yields and great returns. This program has opened up strong rental markets in Texas to real estate investors across the nation.”

Texas Investor Homes is associated with new home builders in some of the key housing markets around Texas that are known for stability, job growth and strong cash flow. Black says that his program is the greatest gift to real estate investors since the low down payment loans of previous years. According to Black, “You cannot do this in many other states. The cost of land and skilled labor are too high. Our goal is to work with builders who can deliver a product in the low $100’s, fully rent-ready. New construction uniquely attracts higher quality tenants who will pay higher rent. It’s pretty simple when you think about it. You can achieve higher rents and less maintenance with less tenant turnover on brand new homes. What more could an investor want?”

Apartment Rents Increasing in North Texas

increasing apartment rentsIn tough economic times like these, it is terrible to see the cost of necessities rising, especially when that necessity is a place to live. Unfortunately, that is just what’s happening in the North Texas area, where apartment rent prices are starting to rise to the point where getting a larger, better apartment is nearly impossible for some residents.

One such family that is having a tough time finding a decent apartment in North Texas is the Perez family, consisting of a mother, father and five teenage sons, all of whom are crammed in a rather small three-bedroom apartment. According to the primary provider for the family, Mrs. Perez, “The bedrooms are very small. The measurements are eight by ten if we’re lucky. So we have two boys that sleep on the couches in the living room.”

Mrs. Perez, who brings in the majority of the family’s income, has said that she has been looking for a bigger apartment since November but can only find ones that are way out of her price range. “Right now I’m paying $800 a month bills paid which is a pretty good deal. But I’m seeing things even higher out there $1,000 a month for the type of living arrangement I will need to be in plus bill and it would be pretty steep for me.”

North Texas isn’t the only area affected, however, as renters from across the country are experiencing similar situations. Axiometrics, which surveys rental properties around the nation, has predicted that apartment rents will increase 5.5% for this year, making it the third straight year of increasess in a row. Axiometrics has also stated that the recovering economy has put more people in the position of not being able to rent.

“We have a tremendous supply of quality renters in most market places that has really allowed there to be a higher occupancy rate. In Dallas we are at 92% which is some of the highest occupancy we’ve ever had,” stated Get There First Realty’s Mark Kreditor. Kreditor operates with rental properties and has said that these high rents can also be a result of the sluggish housing market.

According to Kreditor, “There’s going to be much more supply of renters who would normally be home purchasers because of the fact that mortgage qualification has become a little bit tougher. We try to make homes for everybody. There’s always a way to occupancy.”

Houston Computer Rentals

Houston TexasRentacomputer.com offers a lot in terms of Houston Computer Rentals. Not only can you get a fast and easy computer rental, you can also rent products like projectors, laptops, desktops, servers, tablets, computer monitors, plasma screens, sound systems, video walls, electronic copyboards, printers, copiers, fax machines, networks and so much more!

If your company has specific software you want on your rental device, no problem. Rentacomputer.com can pre-load anything you want or need on an infinite number of devices according to your specifications.

Probably the best feature of a Rentacomputer.com rental is the delivery. Rentacomputer.com sends out a local area technician from wherever you will be using your rental.

Rentacomputer.com offers new equipment sales on computers, audio/visual equipment, servers, security camera systems and more. But, if you don’t want to pay the price for a new system, you can always go for a great piece of equipment from Rentacomputer.com’s used equipment inventory. Every used piece of equipment has been tested by a certified technician to make sure that it is fit for your purchase.

In addition to new and used equipment sales and technology rentals, Rentacomputer.com also offers leasing options for the Houston area.

Depending on your situation, you may also be eligible for tax advantages if you lease your equipment instead of paying for it up front.

San Antonio Sees Increase in Luxury Home Sales

San Antonio luxury homesAs a result of wealthy Mexicans and Eagle Ford Shale millionaires helping drive the luxury home market in Texas, San Antonia luxury real estate has seen a dramatic increase to the point of outperforming the rest of the housing markets in the state.

Custom home builders have started more million dollar spec homes which are built on speculation before an exact buyer has come around. In addition to that, statistics are starting to show that in luxury neighborhoods, the most expensive homes are selling faster than the cheaper ones.

According to Research Economist with the Real Estate Center of Texas A&M University James Gaines, “Who are the most recession-proof? High-income people. Who can more easily qualify for loans? Who can come up with more equity? The world is not egalitarian. That end is going to be more active than the lower end of the market.”

The median (or average) price for a home in San Antonio has increased nearly 2%  for the entire year but it has also increased 3.3% in the $750,000  + category according to Jason Glast of Keller Williams Luxury International.

Cordillera Ranch, located in Boerne, saw a total of 35 homes begin construction with an additional 20 having submitted plans for approval. The average price of each house, not including the lot where it will be constructed, is nearly $1 million per home according to Vice President of Cordillera Ranch Development Corporation. Hill also added, “In every unit the most expensive stuff sells first. It’s staggering. The bigger challenge for us is going to be to get the builders going quickly enough.”

In addition to an increase in luxury home sales, the San Antonio region has also seen an increase in both oil shale wealth and ranch sales, both of which are doing very well in this tough economy.

Short-throw projectors only require half the projection distance of traditional projectors. The projector can be placed just a foot or so from the screen. This is nice because it keeps the projector and screen near each other instead of having a long throw projector that people can accidentally block.

Midland Housing Market is Booming, Leaving Few Options for Renters

Midland TexasIf you are planning on transferring to Midland, Texas before January 1st, you may be surprised to see the quiet housing market that you remember during the holiday season is gone. There are currently only  300 homes for sale and only 7 homes available for rent as of last week in the Multiple Listing Service database, and those in the real estate industry are seeing the best homes and rental properties going fast.

According to current President of the Permian Basin Board of Realtors Deborah Pierce, “The good houses go quick and the rental situation is pretty tough. Midland is just not like the rest of the state.” Pierce also stated that Thanksgiving and Christmas typically bring a bit of slowdown to the housing market but that this year they are still seeing serious home seekers looking for a place to stay.

There were 309 homes on the market last week, down slightly from the 324 homes listed. However, according to industry professionals, this is consistent with what’s been a constant trend over the last several months, making inventory low. These numbers are extremely low if you compare them to the 508 homes listed in 2010.

Member Services Director at the Permian Basin Board of Realtors Carroll Nall stated that numbers are in line with 2007 when oil prices were more than $100 and rental properties were at nearly full occupancy. “We don’t like having this few houses but our growth has been steady,” she said.

In October the average sale price for a home was $211,483 according to the Permian Basin Board of Realtors. That number has dropped dramatically from September when the average house price was as high as $218,314. However, it still accurately represents a nearly 9% increase when compared to sale prices in October of 2010.

Rent Being Provided for Victims of Texas Wildfires

ETCOGThe Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs has allocated nearly $726,000 to assist homeowners who suffered damages from wildfires this year. If it is approved, homeowners that were displaced by wildfires could receive money to demolish and reconstruct their homes while also getting tenant-based rental assistance for as many as three years.

The money is dedicated to assist owners of as many as 43 East Texas homes, which includes 28 homes in three-county Longview Metropolitan Statistical Area , according to the East Texas Council of Governments. Executive Committee Members of the Council of Governments passed resolutions on November 3 to apply for the state grants. The grants are available through Federal investment as well as neighborhood stabilization funds.

If approved, the program will subsidize individual rent for up to two years with an additional twelve months extension also available. In addition to that, security deposits would also be covered along with up to 8% in administrative costs. ETCOG Housing Manager Savannah Pacobit and her staff have already identified homes in seven East Texas counties that could be eligible for assistance. The counties were declared major disaster areas by the Federal Emergency Management Administration on September 9.

Pacobit is also seeking assistance for 35 homes in Marion County, 18 homes in Upshur County, 9 homes in Gregg County, 5 homes in Anderson, 2 homes in Harrison County, 2 homes in Smith County and 1 home in Rusk County. Every East Texas county experienced damage from the wildfires during the first nine months of the year and, according to the Governor’s website, Gregg and Cass counties have seen between 2.1% and 7% of their respective total acreage burned.

Cass County is not a member of the East Texas Council of Governments, instead being a part of the Ark-Tex Council of Governments. Over 7,000 structures were lost to the wildfires and nearly 4 million acres have burned due to  22,500+ wildfires statewide. On the bright side, local and state firefighters are credited with saving nearly 35,000 homes from fire.
