Filing for Homestead Exemption in San Angelo, TX

7 11 2012

From the Desk of Ryan Newlin

Now that we are nearing 2013, there are a couple of things I would like to share with you.

You will need to file for your HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION before April 2013. This will help keep your property taxes as low as possible. Filing the exemption has become more complicated this year. They now REQUIRE a Drivers License
WITH your new address and your Vehicle Registration WITH your new address.

DRIVERS LICENSE – Change of Address
    Online –
    In Person -DMV, Drivers License Division 
1600 Loop 306, San Angelo, TX 76904
(325) 223-6903

You will need to call, give them you license plate number and new address. You will have to wait     48 hours for processing. Then go down in person to get a print out. This costs $2.00.

    113 West Beauregard (in the old library)
    San Angelo, Texas 76903
    (325) 659-6529


As always, please give me a call if you need help with anything. I am looking forward to a busy 2013, but will always have time to help your friends and family!


You can refer back if you don’t get around to your taxes until April… File your Homestead BEFORE April!

Let me know if you need this again…

I have also included some links that I thought were interesting.

Lake Nasworthy Market Report, September 2012

24 10 2012

Below is my most recent Lake Nasworthy Real Estate letter.





Greetings Lake Nasworthy Lovers,


Real estate sales at the lake have been great so far this year, even with the persisting drought. The following information was obtained from the San Angelo Association of Realtors and reflects the time period each year from January 1 to September 20.


# of Sales     Ave. Price     Total Sales      Ave. Price per Square Foot

2011 11 $327,273 $3,600,000 $145.02


2012 26 $274,942 $7,148,500 $143.41


It is interesting to note that although the average sales price per home has decreased from last year by over $50,000, the price per square foot has remained about the same. The good news is that over twice as many lake homes sold this year as compared to last in the same time period.


Eighteen of the 26 lake homes closed this year were in March through June. At the present time there are only 3 lake homes waiting to close, so it will be of interesting to see how the drought and low lake levels affect sales for the remaining months of the year. We will report on that in early January, 2013.


If you are considering selling your lake home or buying another, we suggest going with the real estate company that is most successful in the Lake Nasworthy area. Of the 26 homes closed so far, ERA Newlin & Company has represented 19 buyers or sellers in that group. Ryan Newlin has represented 11 buyers or sellers himself so far this year. Please, don’t trust an inexperienced person to represent you on the purchase or sale of one of your largest assets, your home; and especially the more complex transactions involving lake property. Contact Ryan Newlin for a real estate consultation if you have questions regarding Lake Nasworthy properties. Then, judge his expertise for yourself.


San Angelo, TX…. Is this the New Midland/ Odessa

20 09 2012

Being in the Real Estate business, I work every day with people moving in and out of San Angelo. I spend a lot of time working out at Lake Nasworthy, which is a very popular place for Midland and Odessa residents to escape the wind and desert. I have been hearing for the past year or so that the Oil and Gas business was going to head toward our quiet little town. Well, it finally is… The mid-size and large oil companies have buyers now looking to relocate in West Texas. I know this is great for our local economy, the hard part is trying to find homes to purchase or rent. We have plenty of in town inventory, but homes with land on the outskirts of San Angelo are a little hard to come by… Well (quality well water) water is a big plus when looking to buy a home in San Angelo as well. I advertise all properties for sale in San Angelo at

Are you looking for a home in San Angelo and find all the calls frustrating? I know that calling agents on signs can be very frustrating. Can you say “answering machine?”
