Is it good idea to take hardwood option with the builder or take the carpet and do the hardwood later?
It depends on the quality of both the carpet and of the wood and what you think functions best for your lifestyle. Maybe even half and half.

Agents, are you still seeing multiple offers and contracts for over asking price?
Yes, I am noticing that many times, sellers are receiving 101-107% of their asking price; the competition seems to remain with homes in the 175-250k range.

Is a one-story home in 75013 always going to move faster?
So true, Michael! I have noticed a lot of my buyers lately asking for a one and a half story. That way they still have a game/media room or another bedroom area.

Is the water heater container in the attic a concern for single story (1999) house ?
I have seen some hot water tanks in Edmonton up in the attic. I don't think it's preferable but if you keep an eye on it and do regular checks it shouldn't be a problem.
