What is the property tax homestead exemption in Houston? - PenguinNinja
Might be moving there soon, and I've only ever owned property in LA. Looking online, I'm getting really confused. Some places seems to say it's $25k, others say it's $15k for school district taxes and 20% of appraised value for county taxes (Harris), which could be a good bit more than $25k! ...

re: Thinking about getting a personal financial advisor through Vanguard. Concerns? - PenguinNinja
It does, thanks. Rather than paying for a comprehensive financial plan, could I just pay him/her for 2-3 hours to go through my finances (pretty simple really) and make some recommendations in response to some choices I have? Or is there typically a minimum obligation?...

[quote]you aren't going to get full service/advice from a discount brokerage firm[/quote] This is why I was asking, thanks. I'm new to this, and didn't realize Vanguard was considered "discount". So, who are the "non-discount" brokerage firms that I could look at that may do this? Or am I ...

Thinking about getting a personal financial advisor through Vanguard. Concerns? - PenguinNinja
My company partners with them for managing 401(k) funds, so I think I get a discount on Personal Financial Advisor/Planner services. If not, it'd be simpler anyway since I'm already familiar with website and tools format. Anyway, I was going to shop around for a personal financial advisor/planne...

How does property mgmt work and how much does it cost? - PenguinNinja
Thinking about buying a townhome to live in for a few years and then keep to rent out, but I've never been a landlord before. If I do this and rent it out, it'll probably be because I've moved out of town for work, so I won't be able to manage it myself. I'd want to pay someone to basically hand...

Need help deciding where to live in Houston - PenguinNinja
Mid 30s, wife and 1 infant son (probably another 1-2 in the coming 5 years). Working downtown, and don't want a long commute. My budget is such that we can live wherever I want, but would obviously be able to afford less in certain areas (I.e. Townhouse in Heights vs. bigger house further ...

How are Houston housing prices doing? - PenguinNinja
shite was getting out of control before the oil bust. Have they started falling (or at least stopped increasing) yet? I thought I read the supply was getting pretty high a few months back, so I'd expect prices to be falling. Any realtors here who can comment?...

Where to live in Houston? - PenguinNinja
Haven't lived there in 10 years, and may be moving back soon. Mid-30s couple with 1 child (newborn) and hopefully another to come in the next 2-3 years. Working downtown, and friends and family all over the place (from Katy to Clear Lake to The Heights and Tomball). I don't want a long ...
