Are Buyers concerned with the designated ISD ratings when purchasing a home even if the buyer does not have children?
I think the savvy buyers consider it as it will have an effect on resale.

Do you have to put earnest money down? Is there a required amount for Texas?
You as a buyer can determine what amount of earnest money you want to provide. The seller can accept that amount or counter back to you asking for more.

I am wondering if anyone can give me any insight as far as building a custom home or purchasing one from a new community builder.
Typically a custom home is going to cost you more. I would suggest that you work with a lender first and see how much you are pre-approved for and go from there.

Take care,

How do I find out the purchase price of a house that was sold in Travis County early last year?
Contacting a realtor is your best bet. Looking at the tax records will not give you the actual sales price of a home because Texas is an non disclosure state.
