  6. from The Journal of Pearland Run-off between Carranza and Sherman scheduled June 20 By NATALIE TORENTINOS Updated: 05.11.09 Pearland's city election on Saturday resulted in a run-off for City Council Position No. 2 between Ben Carranza and Scott Sherman. In order to have a run-off, none of the candidates can win more than 50 percent of the vote. Sherman won 45 percent while Carranza won 28 percent. According to County Clerk Joyce Hudman, the run-off election is scheduled for June 20. Early voting will take place from June 8 to June 16, but voting locations have not been determined yet. Felicia Kyle re-captured her council seat for position No. 4. Kyle took 71 percent of the vote against Terence Norman who won 16 percent and Richard Oliver who won 11 percent. In the Pearland ISD Trustee election, Andrew Solomon defeated Ethan Crowell for Position No. 4 with 55 percent of the vote. Virgil Gant ran unopposed for Trustee Position No. 3.
  7. Last Saturday's Pearland City Council Election ended in a runoff for Position 2. The leader, Scott Sherman, secured 45.56% of the vote. Scott's closest opponent in the 4-person race had 28.69% of the vote. Without a 50% majority, a runoff election is required. Scott is a resident of Shadow Creek Ranch. Scott's priorities include crime, traffic, city services and a greener Pearland. You can find more information about Scott by visiting his website, www.shermanforpearland.com. From there, you can contact Scott directly or make a campaign contribution. You can also become a fan of Elect Scott Sherman for Pearland City Council on Facebook!

Even if you did not vote in the general election, you ARE eligible to vote in the runoff! Your support is important and helps ensure that we have someone looking out for our interests at the Council table!
  8. Here is the MLS history: 1998 - sold at $155,000 2005 - sold at $105,000 as a foreclosure and flipped 2006 - sold at $263,000 And the pics from the 2005 flip / 2006 sale: I showed the house after the flip. All of the bedrooms are at one end of the house and they seemed awkward...very cold and institutional. It's nice how everything looks over the pool and yard though.
  9. Don't you think that renters are essentially paying property taxes as part of their rent? As a landlord or potential landlord, wouldn't you take any mortgage, taxes and insurance in to account and make sure that all of those are covered by the rent you could charge?
  10. 1. That was a grammatical correction. It's Sugar Land, not Sugarland. 2. Yanni eats at Red Lobster? Wow. 6. Can you clarify what makes it "creepy"?
  11. I live in Shadow Creek Ranch. Garcia Lawn Service did some work for me (mulching, etc) and also mowed my lawn while I was on vacation. I've been happy with the services provided so far. I don't think he would have an issue with doing the lawn every other week. In fact, a lot of crews would probably do it, assuming they weren't already booked solid. Here is his contact info: Mauro Garcia Garcia Lawn Service 713.498.9353 He is in Rosharon, so the area should be convenient for him.
  12. Unfortunately, cars are routinely broken into at fitness clubs all over Houston. Thieves know that people often leave money, wallets, purses and other valuables in their car when they go work out.
  13. There is one south of here off of 521 in Rosharon. It is about 15 miles south of Highway 6, which isn't really all that close. Here is a link to the Terrell Unit, which is also part of the Ramsey and Stringfellow units. The website says it's 4 miles west of 521, but I have seen parts of it while driving down 521.
  14. We also saw the Wienermobile there at Pointe West, in addition to various other places around the island.
  15. There is some info in this Chronicle story: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/busine...te/5732193.html
  16. 7700 S. Main St. is the recent office building next door at the corner of Braeswood. The pool at the Residence Inn is at the front center of the complex. I haven't driven by recently, so I'm not sure what was torn down. I'm shocked that they are tearing down 12 buildings. They have 36 or 37 if I remember correctly. (I worked there while in college.) I thought it might be possible that they could be building a new, more modern building on the property - a multi-story building with interior corridors and elevators. The largest rooms in this complex are 2-story units on the second floor. Not really accessible to everyone, particular medical center patients. However, I think that they would need to take down more than just those buildings in order to have room to build. I guess they could build it in phases so as to not eliminate too many rooms from inventory at one time. The occupancy there used to be pretty high because of location and amenities offered.
  17. I assume you are referring to 5020 Montrose If so, Tradition Bank (http://www.traditionbank.com/community-medical-district.asp) is in there and there is space currently on the market (http://www.greenbergcompany.com/Office/Off...20/Default.aspx)
  18. Jury Says Realtor Not to Blame for Purchase Price Friday, April 11, 2008 | A jury sided Thursday with Carlsbad real estate broker Mike Little in a closely watched lawsuit that pitted a local couple against the agent that helped them buy a home. The couple, Vern and Marty Ummel, claimed that Little neglected to mention recent sales in their neighborhood, leading them to overpay by about $150,000 for their home in July 2005. The entire article can be found at http://www.voiceofsandiego.org/articles/20...ummel041108.txt
  19. I'm not sure if it was listed with an agent, but here are the 2008 sales (according to MLS): Feb 1 - 5415 Poinciana, 1,577sf, Sold at $146,391, $92.83/sf (paid $4,391 in buyer's closing costs and credited $751 for repairs for net of $89.57/sf) Feb 23 - 5431 Lamonte, 1,450sf, Sold at $142,000 or $97.93/sf (paid $2,500 in buyer's closing costs and credited $1,500 for repairs for net of $95.17/sf) March 20 - 5222 Georgi, 1,268sf, Sold at $160,000 or $126.18/sf (credited $400 for repairs for net of $125.87/sf) March 25 - 5219 Lamonte, 2,067sf, Sold at $165,000 or $79.83/sf (paid $5,000 in buyer's closing costs for net of $77.41/sf)
  20. The 3.556321 rate is what is showing on the Brazoria County Appraisal District, so there must have been a reduction for this year.
  21. Just not as desirable yet as some other areas. By the way, it's Mangum Manor. Edit: It's actually the most expensive (price per square foot) home that is currently active on the market in Mangum Manor as a whole. I'm not saying that it is or isn't worth it, and I know that it's been remodeled. It has also been on the market for over 6 months. Just some things to consider. 5027 Hialeah = $131.49/sf Average = $103.51
  22. http://www.corkwine.net/ From their website: COMING SOON TO PEARLAND AND DOWNTOWN!!!
  23. 6219 Reamer is under contract to close by the end of the month. 9610 Moonlight sold for $614,500 on March 25, 2008.
  24. Urban Lofts can sometimes be tough to sell as a resale. A good number of people don't care for the Galvalume exterior. However, that doesn't mean it's the wrong choice...just something to think about. If you look at some of the resales on HAR.com, you'll notice that many agents use an interior photo as the main picture. This is an attempt to capture the attention of someone that wouldn't otherwise give the townhome a second thought. I have been in a number of resale units though, and they all seemed to be in good conditon with no obvious problems that would be builder related.
