We are a non-disclosure state. You will need to just contact a professional realtor, and they will be able to access that information. The realtors also have the most accurate and current information, so you might be able to find some information on certain websites but it may be not be up to date. ... more

Great question.

Sales have been good in this neighborhood over the past 2-3 years, but as with most North Texas neighborhoods, there have been more sellers than buyers. That seems to be changing some the past 3 months. Rents have increased significantly and the buyers seem to be out in force. As with stocks past market performance is no indication for future appreciation.

I only show 4 homes for sale in the neighborhood now. If you would like to see them or get updates on homes that are coming on the market, check out the link below.

Allen is a great place to live. Please let me know how we can be of service to you.

Of course before you make an offer on a home we will sit down with you, go over prices, sales, and many other reports before you decide on an offer price.

Hi Michele,

I agree - 5.25 is a good rate. Congratulations! Unless you can get a drop of at LEAST 7/8 - 1 point, a refi is just not worth considering.

Please note - if you DO have a loan with less than 20% down, then when you do get to the 20% point, you can get your PMI dropped. Your lender isn't going to let you know when this is - so you'll just need to keep an eye on it. I hope this helps!

Without knowing all the information about each of these homes I would almost guess that they all bought from the builder and either their ARMS adjusted or their taxes went up. 2 of these homes are listed as Short Sales which means they are in pre foreclosure. If you are interested in this neighborhood a Short Sale is a good opportunity to purchase a home that usually will have some front end equity moving in which is a great thing in this market when most properties people are lucky to break even at the price they give and hope their value doesn't decline like a new car the minute they buy the home. Short Sales and foreclosures in poor condition are about the only 2 ways to move in with equity. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. ... more

The information at Trulia does not come directly from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Howerver, does pull their information directly from the MLS so their information will be more current & complete. ... more
