A Second Home — Can You Afford It?

May 11th, 2017 by Emily and Bill Morris

A Lake Home? Golf Course Home? Your Weekend Home?

 

Sounds like a great idea. Get away for the weekends to a second home on the lake. But do you really understand how much it may cost — over and above the purchase price? Take a few minutes to put the costs into perspective.

  • Factor in a mortgage, property taxes, insurance, utilities, maintenance fees, property owners association fees or membership fees. Add in up to 1.25 percent of the purchase price to cover annual maintenance and potential repairs.

  • Add your current home’s payments, expenses, etc. to the projected cost and expenses of the second home. Together, that debt should not exceed 36 percent of your monthly gross income.
  • If your finances cover the total debt of both homes,

Important Safety Gems in White Bluff

Lake Whitney is very well known. Two White Bluff golf courses are important features. And beautiful homes in a wide range of sizes and prices are evident when you visit this lakefront resort community.  But the fire department is not so obvious to visitors, but very important to residents here.

5 Good Reasons Lake Whitney is a Texas Jewel

April 11th, 2017 by Emily and Bill Morris

Lake Whitney Is a Well-Kept Secret in Texas

Known by savvy fishermen and water sports enthusiasts, Lake Whitney is the place to relax and have fun. Great striper fishing. Uncrowded recreational waters for boaters. But here is what makes this Texas lake so special.

  1. Location. Lake Whitney is about an hour south of the DFW metroplex — even closer to Ft. Worth. It is the tip of Hill Country, offering rolling countryside, plenty of woodlands and wildlife.
  2. Blue Water Designation. “Lake Whitney is one of the prettiest lakes in Texas,” according to Texas Parks and Wildlife — and according to those who frequently fish, swim and boat on it. Its clear and uncrowded waters are bordered in many areas by rugged white limestone cliffs.
  3. A Man-made Lake Preserved by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The 23,000+ acre lake was created in 1951 by damming the Brazos River for flood control. Its pristine beauty stretches approximately 40 miles which include a great deal of public land and parks.
  4. Abundant Recreational Opportunities. Besides boating, waterskiing and jetskiing, Lake Whitney is home to prominent fishing tournaments for striped, white, largemouth and smallmouth bass. But there are also about 3,000 acres of winding woodland trails near the lake for horseback riding, hiking, hunting and wildlife photography. It is home to 300 varieties of migratory and non-migratory birds and 50 species of mammals.
  5. Peaceful Living at Lake Whitney. It is an uncrowded community that enjoys life at the lake. Many city folks have weekend homes on some of the small, quaint roads that border the lake. Others relish full time living there, including at White Bluff Resort, a gated community with expansive lakefront exposure. A heavily wooded 4,500 acre planned community, White Bluff offers two excellent golf courses, a marina, dining, five swimming pools. Homes run a wide range of prices, including those on the golf course, overlooking the lake, equestrian properties and tucked-away wooded homesites. And like all of the Lake Whitney area, White Bluff residents also enjoy an uncrowded, peaceful life on the lake.

    White Bluff Resort offers two golf courses, tennis courts, five pools, a marina, horseback riding opportunities and beautiful homes in a variety of settings.
