A Night of Denim and Diamonds!

A little taste of Vegas! 
This Saturday October 22nd at the Nights of Columbus Hall in Schertz, TX. 

The Schertz Cibolo Universal City ISD Education Foundation was created in 2008.  Since then they have hit the ground running!  The purpose of the foundation is to provide additional support to students, teachers, schools, and programs.  Each year teachers are awarded "Innovative Grants" to provide financial assistance for their innovative teaching ideas.  The teachers/teams must apply for the grant and explain their ideas. 

So, why the casino night? 

Of course, this is a foundation that provides grants and therefore requires the support of donations from members of the community.  The casino night is a fund raising event to benefit the Education Foundation allowing it to provide the grants for education! 

For only $50 per person....did I mention this donation goes to a great cause...you will have an evening full of fun and entertainment.  There will be dinner, a silent auction, and vegas style games.  There will even be a chance to win a trip for 2 to.....drum roll......LAS VEGAS!
So put on your poker face and come join us for a fantastic evening.

When you decide to list your house for sale, one of the most crucial parts of the listing is the pictures.  Here at The Claus Team, we know that when a buyer goes to view a home, it's not really their first viewing.  It's normally their second or third, because they have already seen your house online!  That's why taking great pictures is SO important, and why we dedicate so much time to getting perfect photos to showcase your homes best features.

Oh, that Freddie

According to news out this week from Freddie Mac, recent numbers indicate that "...fixed mortgage rates have fallen to historic new lows for the fourth straight week and are likely to fall further."  Rates for 30 year loans are down to 4.01%, the lowest since 1951, and rates for 15 year loans are down to an astonishing 3.28%, the lowest rate EVER for that loan.  When you look at these numbers, and also take a look at the amazing deals to be had through other loan programs, such as FHA, VA, or Texas Veteran (currently at 3.57%!!!!), it's really quite flabbergasting!
