You can do it, but will be too tight to open the passenger door on the right side. Also, don't plan on a lawnmower, snowblower, bikes, garbage cans or anything bigger than a rake in there.

The average SUV is a little over 6 feet wide, so subtract 20-12 = 8 feet for opening doors. Now, try to open your door only 2 feet to get out of your vehicle.

Best to look at one of the realtor websites directly like the link below or realtor.com. These will have the most up to date information. However things do move pretty quick around here. Some will show active when contract or negotiations are in place. ... more

You can learn more about foundations and slope tolerances at this link:
http://www.texasinspector.com/Foundation%20Book%20for%20Buyers.pdf

3" sounds like a lot. I would think you can see and feel this. However it is not just slope PE look at, it is all the other signs too. Sheet rock cracks, brick cracks, and other signs.

Just the slope does not tell the whole story. Maybe it was a bad pour, bad workmanship and like that from the beginning.

If you've had two engineers out, what is it that you want them, and then us to tell you?

Talk to your mortgage broker and ask what they need from you. The US Immigration and Naturalization should have a record that shows that your spouse is a permanent resident eventhough the green card is lost in the mail.

Good luck,

Dan & Becky Harkrider answered:
Unlike Illinois, Texas Real Estate is controlled by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), and in Texas we use promulgated forms for Real Estate transactions. These forms are developed by a Lawyer/Broker committee, appointed by the Texas Govenor. The verbage in these forms is designed to protect the general public. In general, utilizing these forms eliminates the need for individual attorneys in Real Estate transactions. Title companies are run by Lawyers and by obtaining title insurance, you're protecting your investment. Note: Lenders will demand title insurance to protect their investment. Builders don't always play by the rules and often create their own documents, which can be skewed in their favor. This is why we highly recommend you obtain the services of a professional Realtor in all Real Estate transactions. ... more

Karen Shrock-Jones answered:
People who want to live in Valley Ranch are going to move to Valley Ranch. The homes will not get and newer there, so if they want the area in 5 years, they are going to buy in the area when all of the houses will be over 10 years old.

I would recommend concentration on the floor plan, lot, location, and condition rather than on the age of the home. Having grown up in just-built neighborhoods, when it came time for me to buy a home, I wanted some place with mature trees and a more settled feeling.

There are three different school districts in the Valley Ranch area, so you may want to give some consideration to that factor. It will be a resale factor for some subsequent buyers.

I also live in Irving.

Martha answered:
Well, of course I don't know the house. However, Dallas, in general has foundation issues, especially Irving and Carrollton and even N. Dallas. It's pretty common. Sometimes the foundation company that did the work will have a warranty that transfers to the new owner. I would find out who did the work an contact them and get their opinion. ... more

Pat Wyckoff answered:
Sale prices are influenced by a number of items including neighborhood, builder, age, school district, lot size, lot description (with a view or corner lot), and finish out. It is hard to determine what your house should be priced at without seeing it. We have seen a recent upswing in pricing and the last two houses I have listed in Valley Ranch have had a contract less than 10 days and were sold at the highest price per square footage for their neighborhood. Although many buyers might initially submit a lower offer to see if they can get a "deal", a house that has been properly priced and prepared for selling normally get close to asking price. I perform an in depth market analysis based upon comparable sales in the last 6 months to help my sellers decide where their house should be priced. I would be happy to speak with you about listing your home if you would like. My office is the Valley Ranch office of RE/MAX. If I can assist you I can be reached at 972-402-4114. ... more

Dixon Wong answered:
Hi there,

You should try to work it out with the first agent and just tell him exactly how you feel on here. I am sure he would apprecite the feedback you are giving him.

But either way, you are not obligated to pay him anything with a buyer rep agreement.

Please let me know if I can be any help.

You can visit my website at www.findyourtexashome.com.

Thanks

Hi Rachel,

Little Elm is a great area for new build.

I know that in Frisco - the city really tighten up the building code new construction so all the builders that still in the area have by pass all the test and inspection to meet the city standard. I dont think you have to worry going to either builder.

Its definitely for your best interest to take your realtor with you however. Most realtor will split the realtor bonus with you so its a win win situation where you can get some extra money for you at closing.

Please feel free to contact me or my office if you need any further information for your home search.

Thanks
