The new (resale) home's water heater is 12 yr old, we're thinking of tankless water heater but it would cost about $2.5k versus $1.5k
I love having the tankless water heater. With 3 kids (2 teenagers) it comes in very handy, not to mention it's much more energy efficient. I think it's a great choice!

My real estate agent sucks. I'm overwhelmed with the loan process. I assume down payment and closing cost were the same thing, but it is not.
I know it's a bit too late, but I only recommend lenders to my clients who are available by phone seven days a week!

Can you please tell me about quail run, allen, tx? community and potential?
It's very hard to discuss "potential" of a certain area, or neighborhood as the market is a constantly changing thing. I will say as of right now this is a great area.

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.
