This area is well known for high property taxes. My leased home was just dumped and sold to a foreign investor to avoid a extreme tax burden. Just be advised. You might get a great rate on a loan, but the property tax and insurance is often the same as the mortgage.

Great area with great schools and great demand....
The biggest challenges we see are finding properties for sale at the right prices.
It often takes patience.

Rent vs Sale price has to make sense....…

Let us know what you're thinking and maybe we can help.

Low interest rates and steady home prices beats RISING rents. Owning a home is a more attractive proposition than renting in many cities. Investors are picking up great short sale deals as well.

According to National Association of Realtors, it's more affordable to buy a house today than it has been in ages.

I'm here for those who wish to be homeowners. Call or txt me for any information in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and specifically Mansfield, Arlington and Grand Prairie.

Mansfield and all of North Texas is experiencing a resurgence in the real estate market. Home inventory has dropped significantly in the past 6 months, while prices are on the rise. Is it a good time to buy a home to live in, or for investment? In my opinion, the time to buy is when the market is moving up.NOW!

Although prices are higher, we have "turned the corner" with more enthusiasm and momentum that suggests that values will continue to increase. Moderately-priced homes (under $150,000) are seeing a feeding frenzy by buyers, with multiple offers, short selling times, and selling prices at or near list price. It's a SELLER'S MARKET!

Higher priced homes (over $200,000) are seeing an improved market, too, but values are moving up much more slowly. Because of that, there is probably more opportunity for an investor to buy in this price range with better value and less competition from other buyers.

Rents are increasing, too, so an investor can make money leasing at all levels, especially with interest rates - and debt service costs - at historically low levels.
