F. Pete, Both Buyer and Seller in McKinney, TX

Asked by F. Pete, McKinney, TX Fri Jul 27, 2012

Healthcare Professional (military veteran) and quiet neighbor with no pets; no smoking; no children living at home. I’m hoping to remain in Collin County (esp. McKinney-Allen area). Would prefer to see pics before visiting property.
HISTORY: After accepting a job offer, I hurriedly relocated to DFW ~ Dec 2010. The move was quite a rush and I made a disastrous choice in finding a temporary place to live. With 6 months remaining on my lease, I was forced, once again, to quickly find a place to relocate to. Still not ready to buy and unable to take time away from work, I played it safe and leased a newly-constructed duplex in McKinney. I cannot believe it has already been a year! My lease ends at the end of August. I love it here, and my LL states he really wants to retain me as a tenant, but I cannot wrap my mind around throwing so much money into a rental ($1400). While I would love to purchase a home in McKinney or Allen, I need to first sell my home in West TX.

I guess I am a little confused about your rental needs. You will not find much of anything decent to rent in McKinney for under $1200 - so not sure if you would save all that much by moving. You might ask your landlord if he will go month to month or do a 6 month lease until your West home sells. If do decide to look for another rental. I would be happy to assist you. I live and work in McKinney and do many rentals. Good luck to you.

The fact that you have no pets will help also. Call, text, or email me if you would like my help. Have a great day!!
