Getting a call or email from a friend about something or someone he'd like to recommend will always grab my attention. Give people some good reasons to do that for you.

For the first 2-3 years; really the first 5; you are only paying interest on a mortgage. So, it isn't really a good idea to buy if you are going to be moving in 5 years or less.

Hi, Mom of 2,
Since this property is listed with another broker, you need buyer representation.
It is improper for us to comment on another broker's property offering on a public forum like this (my opinion), but we will discuss home values with clients in a more private setting all day long! You need to hire an agent that you trust, and that knows the home market into which you'd like to purchase.
I'd be happy to guide you through purchasing a home in Southlake if you are not already represented by a buyer's agent. I specialize in listing bank foreclosures, but living and working in Southlake as I do ( and have for 20 years), I am uniquely suited to help you with your next home purchase if you are looking to make Southlake your next home. Call at your earliest convenience! Kim Marin, Century 21 Mike Bowman Relocation Center office at Southlake Town Square (above the Corner Bakery) 817-552-3869

I think I've looked in the attic there on the ones on the north side, but now can't remember. I think they do. It is easy for your inspector to tell. I believe there may be two phases though if I remember correctly. Looks to me like the ones that back to Dove were built at one time and the ones on Sonnet and Choteau were built later, so it could depend on the unit as well. ... more
