Bridgeland is a master planned community that has all of the traditional amenities, like pools and tennis courts. This is said to be the sister community to The Woodlands. Recently, Bridgeland added a mountain bike trail and nature trail, in efforts to make the Cypress Creek Corridor accessible to residents.
The eventual six-mile Cypress Creek Nature Trail winds through the historic corridor, a 1,000-acre nature area and creek system bordering Bridgeland’s northern boundary. The mountain bike trail runs parallel to the nature trail and Cypress Creek, extending for nearly one mile. It connects with the main trail in several areas so if you have some family members who bike and others that like to jog – you can still meet up! In the fall, Bridgeland’s first elementary school is scheduled to open it’s doors to the community.
If you are interested in moving to Bridgeland or just want to know more because you are relocating to the area, please call Register Real Estate Advisors and speak to one of our Realtors. They can show you any house on the market! 281.288.3500
Yes, yes, and yes! Having good credit can definitely save you money on a home purchase. Recently our trade industry Texas Realtor Magazine posted an article on this very topic. This was the example they gave -
A homebuyer with a FICO Score in the 760-850 range could get a loan with a 3.277% APR, while a borrower with a score of 620-639 might get a 4.878% rate, according to recent results from myFICO’s Loan Saver Calculator.
How much is that difference worth? About $139 a month for a 30-year fixed-rate $150K loan. Over the life of the mortgage, that adds up to $50,040!
You can look at how other credit scores affect loan amounts at www.myfico.com/myfico/creditcentral/loanrates.aspx.

Oh YES – Curb appeal is very important year ’round! Curb appeal is the first thing buyer’s see and they won’t even go in the house if they don’t like what they see outside.
Seller’s need to be prepared for harsh criticism. As a Realtor, I see many front doors that need to be refinished, many house numbers that are falling off the bricks, lots of dead plants, dead grass, mailboxes barely standing upright, and walkways covered in leaves. You want your home to look like it’s been well cared for and maintained.
Below are a few quick fixes you’ll want to do before placing your home on the market for sale:
Replacing the hardware on your front door
Wash the windows inside and out
Remove the screens from the windows
Paint the shutters
Repaint the garage door
Clean up driveway stains
Repair squeaky garage doors
Make your front porch inviting with a table and chairs
Add a potted plant to the front porch
Power wash everything outside
If the home will be shown at night don’t forget to leave the lights on. Consider leaving them on a timer. Landscape and pool lights are a nice touch.
