Is it true that in the state of Texas, there are no expiration dates for offers made when buying a house?
No, but your Realtor can go into detail about this and any other questions you have about buying a home. You have to build trust and communicate well with each other.

Does Murphy Texas allow gas drilling - have read the air is poison in areas such as flower mound. What is the water quality in Murphy. Thank you
I live in Murphy and the water is terrible. We can't drink it. And in the late summer it is even worse. It smells and your freshly laundered clothes smell as well.
