Texas Drivers License Heads Up

One of our very important business partners is Independence Title - our Escrow Officer is Autumn Cooke. 

Autumn has shared information important to folks closing on a real property - and, important for folks who drive! 

Gov. Greg Abbott granted a waiver in March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which allowed Texans with driver's licenses expiring on or after March 13, 2020, to not have to renew them. Abbott's waiver ENDED on April 14, 2021.

So if your clients are still using an expired driver license, the title company now will have to obtain an alternative valid and unexpired form of government-issued photo ID at closing, or a renewed TXDL.

So, for all you drivers out there - Heads Up!

OH NO - Not a FSBO!


The title of the video is "Don't Get Fooled into Selling Your House on Your Own" - and it is named that for a reason. On the surface "SAVING" the agent commission sounds like a lot of extra money in your pocket. If you needed surgery, you could save a lot of money by doing that yourself too - but I wouldn't recommend it. I would not go it alone on a home transaction either. To be a professional means years of study and continuing education. Laws change, risks change, and things can get pretty complicated.

But did you also know that when you are selling your home on your own, the buyer looks at you and thinks "we can get this house for less because there is no agent". So who benefits or do you share?  Who wins? Then there is a risk that you could sell too low and lose money - often the case. The buyer wonders if the price is too high? Was too much paid? And what if something goes wrong? Really, really seriously wrong? Y'all get the idea.

Just like many other professionals out there, REALTORS are your best resource. If you want to talk it through, reach out to me and I'll do my best to explain it. Does not matter if you are my client or not. always glad to assist where I can. Goes without saying - never an obligation!

Guy Time in the Kitchen


Some of us guys enjoy kitchen time - cooking, baking - maybe even making a pizza (the pizza comes from my Italian side - probably genetic).  And, having racked up a lot of personal kitchen time, there is nothing like "doing time" in your very own kitchen! Ready?
