After looking on the MLS, there isn't a rental that is 3 Bdrm under $800/mth. The least expensive 3 bdrm in Irving is $950/mth. Are you open to a 2 bdrm? Please contact me at your convenience and I can email you a list of available rentals in the Irving area. I look forward to hearing from you!
Make it a Great Day!

The buyer would most commonly initiate an offer to purchase the property from the seller on terms acceptable to the buyer, however, it would not be incorrect or wrong for the seller to write a contract offering to sell the property to the buyer on the sellers' terms. Either way - it's simply more common for the buyer to be the one making the offer.... more
If you are looking to rent a home, we would recommend starting to search about 60 to no more than 75 days prior to when you wish to move in to the rental. Most landlords are not willing to have a property vacant more than 30 days so it would be a waste of time to look way in advance.... more
Were you working with an agent before you got into the deal? The builder would pay the agents fee for you, and the agent would be able to answer these kinds of questions for you. If you didn't use an agent I would be curious to know what your reasoning was, especially since it wouldn't cost you anything. If you do have an agent why haven't they discussed these issues with you?... more
There are a number of elements to buying a home.
1) You need to get yourself financially ready to purchase. If you have saved up a downpayment, you should go get a pre-approval from a loan officer at a bank. This should take about 2-3 weeks. Until you know what you can get approved for, you won't have a realistic budget to work with.
2) Assess what you need in a home and get familiar with what's available. This is a highly variable period of time. Some people can narrow that down in a few weeks, while others may take 6 months.
3) Find a real estate broker who will educate you as well as protect your interests in the purchase process. If you have some good referrals, this should be pretty quick.
4) Visit prospective homes and make some offers. This is also a highly variable period. Lucky buyers can win deals in the first week and others can drop dozens of offers over a year before winning a deal. A good real estate broker can help limit the time needed with good guidance.
5) The actual close is pretty straightforward. A short sale will add about 2-3 months to the process. Once in escrow, it's about 30-45 days on average to close.
So, altogether, I've seen first-time home buyers I've worked with go from thinking about buying to getting the keys to their home sometimes in as quick as 3 months and others up to over 2 years (they're still looking for a "steal").... more
If the contract is in it's Option Period, this means they have an accepted and executed contract just waiting on their inspection period to clear. You could probably place an offer in as a back-up, but seller is bound unless buyer pulls out due to inspection issues, etc. If buyer attempts negotiations for repairs, etc...and seller does not wish to accomidate such requests, buyer may pull out, and then they may move on to your offer. Hope this helps.... more
I dont think this is where we are at all. I think that many agents dont want to be upfront with some of their clients about the risks associated with their files if they even know to begin with. In my opinion it is doing the seller a dis service by advising them to sign anything over a 10 to 14 day financing contingency. Whats the point of EM if at the end of the day the lender can write a denial letter and the buyer walks away scott free.
My advice would be that 30 days is unacceptable and negates the point of even putting up the EM to begin with. If the buyers lender cannot take a look at the file and be confident there will be no problems then they shouldnt be out putting offers on houses in the first place.... more
optinon basically means that they buyer in basically doing inspections and still can back out and receive earnest money. at the under contract or pending contract phase, basically all options periods have ended and the contract is waiting to close. if the sell is cancelled at this point it has to be mutually agreed upon or someone will be in violation of the contract
