When you said the same, is it the same amount of upgrades? I would suggest that you consult your realtor.

It sounds like it"s the same subdivision I just moved into myself. I see this is dated for last year. I would be interested to hear what you decided to do. Troy

No one can tell you the chances of the bank agreeing or coming after you. I would suggest open communication with the bank and being constantly informed of your status. They usually will look at your overall financial situation as well as your hardship reason before deciding approving the short sale or not. You should have a very strong hardship reason.

Take care!

Heritage Lakes is a very popular community. I agree with the other suggestion--the best way to experience it yourself is to "experience it yourself" and drive through the community. If you're not "in" the area yet, I suggest taking a "virtual drive-through" with google-maps :) Most of my relocationers find it very helpful.

My website has a wealth of information on the neighborhood, school ratings, and nearby conveniences:

Have you found your first home yet. I specialize in First Time Home Buyers and would love you help you in your search.

The Power stations or power lines do bother some people but others not as much. The health concerns are widely debated. The negative side in my experience is more with resale. If you are planning this as a very long-term home then I think you are ok. But there is a reason the prices are competitive, and typical days on market are slightly higher.

If you email me a few details about your search criteria I can pull together some homes for us to look at. I have references from many First Time Home buyers who I've helped make their home purchase as stress-free as possible.

Happy Hunting,
Renee Toton

There are some great Communities in West McKinney. They are Frisco's Exemplary Schools and close to 121 highway, halfway between 75 and Tollway for easy commutes. The Reserves at Westridge, The Arbors at Willow Bay, plus 3 others close. Also, Griffin Park in West Frisco feeds into Wakeland High School which is amazing!

I would love the opportunity to make your search and move easier. I just moved to West Frisco myself, from North Dallas. I have lived all over the area from McKinney to Dallas, to Coppell and Arlington. You can email me some basics of what you are looking for at, or check out

I am actually currently working with another client who is moving to the US and has no credit history here. It took some searching, but I found a great loan for him! It does require 20% down and one US pay stub received prior to closing. Email me at and I am happy to pass along the lender's name and you can contact him directly!

Hi Ken, Try 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty. Many of the custom home builders throughout the DFW area use them. They are a solid company.

Newman Village has some patio homes in the $350k range. If you want a good Landon Home, check out Sunset Pointe in Little Elm (Frisco ISD). There are a lot of good, new communities out that way though so let me know if you have any questions. I work with mostly new homes in the Frisco/Little Elm/ The Colony (Tribute) area. ... more
