Kenn Renner Unveils Website For The Avery Ranch Golf Course Community

Kenn Renner has long been the top producer for one of the most desired real estate locations in Central Texas. The popular Avery Ranch was much awaited when first opened in 2000, with Kenn sold 17 homes the first day they went on sale.

Avery Ranch Golf Course Community

In addition to the traditional items found on a real estate website, Kenn states that his site gives extensive history of Avery Ranch, provides videos and provides additional information on multiple aspects of home buying. Kenn provides seminars as well, with more information available on his new website www.BuyAveryRanch.com.

Kenn has now dedicated an entire website to this premium real estate location. Kenn says, “Avery Ranch has over 4,000 homes and over 1800 acres, with an award winning golf course and club house.” He highlights the amenities on his site, such as the pools and beautiful outdoor recreation opportunities. In addition to these amenities, there are playscapes, tennis courts – and an outdoor amphitheater.

In the Avery Ranch predevelopment stage, Kenn had visited one of original homes, and was attracted to the history of the Avery Ranch location. During this time, Renner states that he walked nearly all the lot lines personally and watched almost all of the homes being built. Kenn embraces the rich history of Avery Ranch, as it is a “true icon of central Texas.” Kenn states that the developers managed to “preserve the integrity of the Texas Hill Country experience” while still giving residents a great place to live, shop and work.

With over 200 home closings in the Avery Ranch since the golf course community opened, Kenn has sold more homes than any other realtor in the Avery Ranch location. As a top performer, his new website allows home buyers and sellers to view and market properties.

Kenn’s new website, www.BuyAveryRanch.com, is dedicated not only to the established neighborhoods in the Avery Ranch Real Estate, but also features the new additions of Pearson Place and Avery Station. “These two new developments,” says Kenn, “are just south of Avery Ranch,” and Avery Ranch’s “legacy continues to grow” as this area remains one of the top selling areas in central Texas.

Buyers and sellers alike are continuing to benefit from Kenn’s experience as he launches his new website to showcase not only the homes available in the beautiful Avery Ranch, but he highlights the new developments happening in the community as well. Avery Ranch homebuyers and sellers alike can easily view the homes for sale and comparison shop.

Visit either one of his websites for more information on buying or selling a home in Avery Ranch or one of the new additions of Pearson Place or Avery Station. www.BuyAustin.com or the site specifically for Avery Ranch – www.BuyAveryRanch.com to find useful information.

Kenn Renner with BuyAustin.com Updates Austin on the First Time Home Buyer Extension

The First Time Homebuyer Credit was signed into Law in February 2009 to help stimulate the slumping housing market. The original Bill contained an $8000 tax credit for first time home buyers who purchased a home between January 1, 2009 and November 30, 2009. This past Friday the $8000 tax credit was extended past the November 30th deadline.

Kenn Renner

This extension will extend the tax credit to include contracts signed by April 30th and are closed by June 30th next year. In addition, the extension will include a $6500 tax credit to those who have had a least 5 years of consecutive homeownership 5 out of the last 8 years. “Therefore, this extension not only benefits first-time homebuyers, but also homeowners, says Kenn Renner, first-time home buying expert with BuyAustin.com.

Mr. Renner says his office had been inundated with calls about the first extension. With the credit having been extended he said, “The fact there is a cutoff for contract leads me to believe that this will not be extended again. So anyone who is eligible and wants to take advantage of the tax break needs to take action sooner than later.”

Kenn Renner reminds those who want to take advantage of this extension that there are a few rules that new homebuyers need to be aware of:

1. Homes must be under contract for purchase by April 30th, 2010 and close by June 30, 2010.

2. Home buyers can receive the tax credit by amending their current tax returns, thus not having to wait until filing their tax returns next year and receiving the credit quicker.

3. Income limitations have been expanded.

4. The tax credit is no longer limited to just first time home buyers (considered those that have not owned a primary residence in the past 3 year), repeat home buyers that qualify and have lived in a primary residence for 5 out of the past 8 years qualify.

5. New or resale, Single Family, Condos & Townhomes all qualify for the credit as long as they become primary residences.

It is projected that 1.8 million homebuyers will benefit from the first time homebuyer credit by the end of this November. The National Association of Realtors believes approximately 355,000, nearly 20%, would not have purchased their new home without the First Time Home Buyer Program.

Kenn Renner Teams Up With DR Horton To Warn About Expiring Federal Tax Credit

Top Austin real estate broker and author, Kenn Renner, with Buy Austin (www.BuyAustin.com) and DR Horton, Austin’s largest home builder, has reported they can only accept contracts for individuals who qualify for the first time home buying federal tax credit for a few more weeks. Although a hard deadline has not been set by either organization, first time homebuyers who do not take action now seriously risk missing the November 30th cut-off set by the government.

Top Austin real estate broker and author, Kenn Renner, with Buy Austin www.BuyAustin.com and DR Horton, Austin’s largest home builder reminds first time homebuyers of the impending deadline for the $8000 Federal Tax Credit, which is due to expire on Monday November 30th, 2009. Kenn urges first time home buyers who want to make use of the $8000 tax credit, “to purchase their home within the next few weeks in order to meet the first time home buyer federal tax credit deadline.”

Last February, President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 in order to help kick start the sluggish US housing market. One of the key components of the Act was the creation of the $8000 first time home buyer federal tax credit. “The $8000 federal tax credit is essentially a free gift from the federal government,” says Renner, www.BuyAustin.com broker and a first time home buyer specialist.

The first time home buyer federal tax credit has been received favorably by many consumers, real estate professionals, and home builders across the US. “The first time home buyer federal tax credit has been successful because there is always a positive economic ripple effect each time a home is purchased,” says Renner. In addition, “its success has been fueled by “pent up demand, low interest rates and lower home prices,” Renner continues.

The National Association of Realtors recently reported that 53% of today’s homebuyers are first timers due in part to the $8000 federal tax credit. “Homebuyers just need to realize that the tax gift is going away and that now is the time to take action,” Renner urges.

Renner warns home buyers who wish to take advantage of the $8000 federal tax credit to focus primarily on available housing inventory. Renner adds, “although there are great deals for buyers in the short sale market, foreclosures and with bank owned REO companies, they unfortunately cannot process the contracts quick enough to meet the deadline. Therefore, buyers should focus on builder inventory or resale homes that are owner occupied in order to close before the impending deadline.”

First Time Home Buyer $8000 Federal Tax Credit Is Set To Expire

In February, President Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. One of the key components of the act was the $8000 First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit. Basically, a gift from the federal government to be credited to qualified first time homebuyers. The act has been received favorably by consumers, real estate professionals, and homebuilders. The program has been successful because there is always a positive economic ripple effect each time a home is purchased. The National Association of Realtors recently reported that 53% of today’s homebuyers are first timers due in part to the $8000 tax credit. Pent up demand, low interest rates and low prices have also played a big part in the home buying activity.

“Buying a first home at the right time is always a good move,” comments Kenn Renner, real estate expert with Keller Williams Realty. “Homebuyers just need to realize that the tax gift is going away and that now is the time to take action,” Renner added.

Just as the “Cash For Clunkers” program is now history – the first time homebuyers tax credit is set to expire. The deadline is Monday, November 30th. The Monday after the Thanksgiving Day holidays. Title companies, escrow companies, and mortgage companies have been alerting the real estate community and their clientele to not wait until the last minute to close on a home as they will be overwhelmed with home buyers trying to beat the deadline.

“I have heard some title companies indicate they will need purchase contracts in by late October to ensure they have plenty of time to meet the deadline,” Renner explains. “There is no grace period – there is ‘talk’ that the government might continue the program, but right now we cannot assume any date except the current deadline that is stated in the law,” further adds Renner.

About Kenn Renner: Kenn gained national exposure from his numerous appearances on HGTV’s #1 rated show “House Hunters” and as a guest expert on business talk radio. He is a broker associate with Keller Williams Realty. He has sold and financed over $200 Million in real estate since 1983. His new book “First Time Home Buying Secrets Revealed” (www.FirsttimeHomebuyingSecrets.com) will be published nationwide this fall. On September 29th, Kenn will be presenting his popular “American Dream Home Buying Seminar” in downtown Austin. Visit www.BuyAustin.Com for more information.

Soon, Bulgaria Will Be Home To One Of Europe’s Top Golf Courses, In The Form Of The New Gary Player Signature Course, Which Is Part Of Thracian Cliffs Golf & Spa Resort

Soccer mad Bulgaria traditionally hasn’t had much time for golf, but that is changing as people realise that the Bulgarian climate would suit the golfing season perfectly- stretching it out to eight or nine months a year.

Europe’s Top Golf Courses

Nine years after the first golf course was built, Bulgaria is on the fast track to becoming an established world golf destination and the development of the golf industry would double the all-important summer season on the Black Sea coast.

The Government is also backing the drive to boost golf in Bulgaria and plans to develop the industry and attract an increasing number of upper-class affluent tourists. It sees the construction of golf courses as an alternative to the property boom on the Black Sea Coast and in mountain resorts.

Soon, Bulgaria will be home to one of Europe’s top golf courses, in the form of the new Gary Player Signature course, which is part of Thracian Cliffs Golf & Spa Resort.

The 18-hole Gary Player Signature golf course forms the core of the luxury mixed-use development which is located on 164-hectares of wild, scenic Black Sea coast terrain.

The Golf Clubhouse will offer casual luxury with a comfortable, sophisticated and inviting social atmosphere for golfers and friends. The facility will include relaxing restaurants, an elegant bar and lounge with fireplaces and terraces overlooking the 18th green and seaside views to the Gary Player Signature golf course.

The Clubhouse will include workout facilities, indoor and outdoor pools with dramatic views in all directions.

And just in case you find yourself on the golf course without your dictionary, here are a few useful phrases to help you get ‘a-round’….

‘Did you see where that landed?’
Видя ли тази топка къде падна?
Vidia li tazi topka kyde padna?

‘That is a horrible lie’
Това е ужасна лъжа.
Tova e uzhasna lyzha.

‘Surely that’s a gimme’
Тази топка е вътре със сигурност.
Tazi topka e vytre sys sigurnost.

‘This to go all square. No pressure.’
Резултатът от тази дупка е равен. Спокойно.
Rezultatyt ot tazi dupka e raven. Spokojno.

‘I didn’t touch it’
Не я докоснах.
Ne ia dokosnah.

‘No I definitely scored 4 not 5’
Не, със сигурност отбелязах 4, не 5.
Ne, sys sigurnost otbeliazah 4, ne 5.

Bulgaria : On Course For Golfing Greatness

Considered to be one of the greatest emerging markets for worldwide property investors, Bulgaria is already a hotspot for skiing and sunbathing. Now, thanks to the massive pulling power of top quality golf courses, Bulgaria is on track to become a golfing phenomenon too. With global golf tourism worth over £10 billion, Bulgaria is bound to become a huge success – with a range of pursuits both on and off the course…

thraciancliffs

1. Big hitters, big names!

Bulgaria is fast becoming first choice for many UK holidaymakers taking summer or skiing holidays, and now it looks set to become a mini-paradise for golfers too, as developers invest heavily in building a number of prestigious signature golf courses in the country.

Soon, Bulgaria will be home to one of Europe’s top golf courses, in the form of Thracian Cliffs Golf and Spa Resort, which boasts an 18-hole Gary Player Signature golf course.

The course forms the core of the luxury mixed-use development and is located on 164-hectares of wild, scenic Black Sea coast terrain, spanning 4.5 kilometres of coastline and bestowing a truly exhilarating golfing experience with stunning sea views.

Being the first on site, Mr. Player had the privilege of situating the fairways along the edge of the land while the real estate had to take the back row overlooking the greens and the sea.

The Golf Clubhouse will offer extravagant golfer facilities, including restaurants, a Long Bar with fireplaces and terraces overlooking the 18th Green and the sea, a gym and indoor and outdoor swimming pools with stunning views.

Alongside Mr. Gary Player, several other big names are behind the boom in golf in Bulgaria – Ian Woosnam has designed three golf courses; Bankso golf course, the Ian Woosnam golf course and the Pirin Pine course and legend Jack Nicklaus is behind the Ibar Golf Club & Spa – his first project in southeast Europe.

2. The legendary nineteeth hole

Bulgaria’s all important Nineteeth Hole is buzzing – the capital Sofia boasts a bustling nightlife scene with numerous bars, clubs, live venues and “mehani” – traditional Bulgarian taverns. The restaurant scene in Sofia is also emerging as a culinary force within Eastern Europe.

You can enjoy a relaxing night out too – a pint of beer will only set you back around 50 pence!

3. A fair-weather destination – all year round!

Bulgaria boasts more than 2,500 hours of sunshine each year, with more than 300 during July and August alone. During the summer months, temperatures range from a balmy 23 to 30 degrees Celsius and you won’t have to edge slowly into the sea – the water will be warm and inviting.

The availability of reasonably priced direct flights to Bulgaria has made it easy for forward-thinking travellers to make the most of the country. Low-cost airlines fly 365 days a year to Sofia, Varna and Bourgas from many other European locations.

4. Royal and Ancient?

The game of golf may date back to the 12th Century, but you won’t be able to pass that off as the only bit of ‘history’ you enjoy in Bulgaria – not when there’s so much else on offer.

For thirteen centuries, the land of Orpheus and Spartacus has sparked Thracian treasures and burial tombs, magnificent frescos and ancient applied arts.

Along the coast lie the Aladzha rock monastery, the historic architecture of Nessebar and old Thracian Tombs. Bulgaria also boasts the most ancient copper mines in Europe, which date back to the 5th millennium BC and architecture from the late Bronze Age.

5. Feeling below par?

Pulled a muscle on the golf course or just feeling a little green? Soothe those aches away at one of the many thermal pools and spas dotted around the country, boasting mineral-rich waters with relaxation and healing benefits. The Chedi Spa at Thracian Cliffs would be the best place to recover your inner harmony.

The Chedi Hotel will comprise 60 suites and will have all of the facilities, amenities and services you would expect from a luxury boutique resort.

This Chedi hotel will manage The Chedi Suites, The Chedi Club Suites, The Chedi Residences and the extravagant Chedi Villas, each on its own secluded 2500 m² plot.

Once completed, Thracian Cliffs Golf and Spa Resort will be set apart from other resorts in Europe due to its architecture and interior design which will reflect contemporary Asian style.

Balli Real Estate Sees Return Of Activity In UK Property Market

Balli Real Estate has revealed that fluctuations in the world’s currency exchanges and the fall in the value of sterling caused by the global financial crisis have once again made the UK’s property market a lucrative proposition for investors.

Recent statistics have revealed a rise in market activity and increased levels of mortgage approvals market as buyers return to the market after months of inactivity. This increase in market sentiment is not restricted to the occupational market and has been mirrored with an increase of investment activity.

Balli Real Estate, the private property company, has witnessed an increase in levels of interest in the UK market from domestic and overseas buyers during the first quarter of the year, as a window of opportunity, which opened with the fall of the pound against the world’s major currencies, has been spotted by investors.

Vahid Alaghband, group chairman of Balli Group, observes that the fall in sterling earlier in the year made the UK an attractive proposition for overseas investors and comments: “The relative weakness of the pound against other currencies and the fluctuations of the exchange rates are proving to be very beneficial to buyers from overseas, looking for new opportunities thrown up by the turmoil being experienced by real estate markets around the world. With low prices and yields at up to 10%, property has become a good investment again. In particular the housing market in the UK, of which around 50% is underwritten with government money, and with supply at record low we expect the market steadily through to 2014. The return to the market of competitive mortgages will prove a further boost.”

Balli Real Estate suggests that the pound’s relative weakness on the world’s currency markets will make the UK particularly attractive to buyers from the USA, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates.

Alaghband continued: “The argument for an influx of overseas investment is compelling when you combine a 30% fall in the value of the pound with, in some cases, a similar fall in property values. This inward investment is helping to bring an increase in liquidity to the market, which will be an important factor in the recovery of the residential and commercial property markets in the UK.”

Balli Real Estate expects that established and mature markets will prove particularly attractive to foreign investors as the fundamentals of location, accessibility and communications will remain key drivers for occupiers and investors.

David Reid of Balli Real Estate said: “The old adage of ‘location, location, location’ holds good whether the market is good or bad and the established and proven locations of our towns and cities will continue to draw occupiers and purchasers.”

“This has been witnessed at ‘Latitude’ our 172 apartment development in central Birmingham a short distance from New Street train station and the Bullring. Sales in the third and fourth quarters of 2008 were negligible but we have seen a steady increase during the first quarter of 2009.

About Balli Real Estate:
Balli Real Estate is a leading multi-national real estate investment and development company operating in the UK, the Middle East and other lucrative markets. In the United Arab Emirates the company operates under the Peacock Ventures Ltd brand. The company focuses on four key activities: fund management, joint venture developments, direct developments and bulk purchase investment, and is involved in some of the most prestigious real estate projects in the world.
