Real Estate Reality Check

by Ashton Gustafson

Good Monday morning to you!

I believe in Real Estate. I believe that it is the fastest way to build wealth and financial stability with the least amount of risk. Naturally, I am a bit biased, but no one has to be a genius to understand the principles of buying, selling, owning, renting, and speculating with Real Estate. At some point, every tenant needs a new place to sleep, work, or recreate - and you the INVESTOR get to play the role as provider for that need. It is really that simple.

In watching the market for some time now, I've seen 5 factors that effect the market: Iventory, Interest Rates, Mortgage Availability, Consumer Confidence, and Unemployment.

Here's a reality check for us all....

Inventory) - We're at an all time high. This means choice.

Interest Rates - We're at an all time low. This means affordability.

Mortgage Availability) - At least 90% of the people that I send to lenders get qualified. If you want a loan, chances are I can get you one.

Consumer Confidence) - We just had the most sales for August in our company history. The consumer is quite confident.

Unemployment) - The entire country wishes things were different, but we've seen "blue skies" here in North Texas.

No matter if its a $20,000 home or a multi-million dollar project, they all count. I would love to help you build wealth for yourself and future generations. Register @ to keep your thumb on the market.

Make it a great week.

Ashton's Weekly Update - Time to Buy.

by Ashton Gustafson

Good Monday morning to you!

Did you know that you have 92,750 reasons to be happy if you missed the 1st Time Home Buyer Tax Credit?

Less than 2 years ago, rates were at 6.5% fixed on a 30 year conventional loan.

Lately, with Wichita Falls local lenders, rates have hit 4.5% and below on a 30 year conventional loan.*

If you took a $200,000 loan out, this change in interest charged would save you $92,750 over the life of the loan, as compared to where rates were not long ago.

This is a HUGE savings and should not be taken lightly. See for every home available at this time in our market. Simply click request a showing, and I'll meet you there at a time that works for you.

And if you want to invest, see

Best of luck in all you do this week.

Labor Day Market Update - Wichita Falls, TX

by Ashton Gustafson

Happy Labor Day to you!

Its hard to believe that September marks two-thirds of the year being behind us. As we finish up the final third, our firm looks to finish strong and re-write the record books in what has been a very volatile time.

If you get a chance, listen to this month's Pod Cast @ My focus here is buying NOW. If you are at a place in life where you can invest, now is the time. The more rentals in your portfolio, the more you will succeed in the coming years. Rates have one way they can go....up. And when they go up, the consumer's payments become higher, and the market's demand for rentals becomes very high.

Don't forget our other sites: -  Looking to sell? - The Falls' own buyer's site.

I wish you all the best today - call me if I can do anything for you.
