Katy, TX, June 05, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- A Katy family of six was very excited to finally have a house of their own after a long year renting a small apartment. The family relocated from Utah in May of 2013 and like most families that relocate to a new area, they decided to rent for a year before buying their first Texas home.
After searching for potential homes online, they decided to enlist the help of their realtor, Karen Rivera. “A Realtor is the only way to shop for a house when buying. While you can find houses on your own. The workings of the local and state mandates/regulations/laws aren't all known so one could compromise their position without the aid of a Realtor that knows the market,” said the proud new Texas homeowner.
“I really enjoy working with families that relocate to Texas because I know from personal experience the challenges of relocating to a new state, “ said Karen Rivera who relocated from New Jersey in 1997.
The property which was located in Katy, TX (77449) was listed at $184,995 and sold for $172,000 with $2,500 in contribution from the seller. According to the data from the Houston Association of Realtors, 77% of the homes in Katy (77449) are owner occupied. The buyers purchased the home with an FHA loan. The property has a lot size of 9,262 square feet and the 2,644 square foot home includes 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a game room. Now this family of six have plenty of room to make wonderful memories for years to come.
Families recently relocated and ready to purchase their first Texas home can contact Karen Rivera to start their first step towards homeownership. Karen Rivera serves the Greater Houston area including Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, and Magnolia.
