do i need a texas drivers license to buy a home in texas? will apassport or other ID work ?
No, you do not need to have a TX driver's license to purchase a home. A passport or valid idea from another state would be just fine.

Jim Morelli answered:
is earnest money for the agent's compensation for helping find a house for the buyer?
Earnest money is to show good faith on the part of the buyer. In the event a buyer was to default the earnest money would be forfeited and then distributed according to the contract.

Are Buyers concerned with the designated ISD ratings when purchasing a home even if the buyer does not have children?
Some buyers don't care about schools but many without children will still care because it can affect the future resale value of the home.
