I'm assuming that you don't have a realtor representing you. If that's the case then I would suggest that you read your contract again and go from there.

University park can be a bit tricky to do a tear down in, you have to be sure of the age of the home, and I would recommend being sure of the permit during a lengthy option period before ever purchasing the home. There are many experienced builders in the area that do a great job. I would be happy to help you or anyone navigate these waters.

I agree with the information given by Certified Structure Inspector, Home Inspector, Reno, NV .

Be sure you have a home inspector that covers all the items mentioned by Certified Stucture Inspector.
You probably will have to get more thorough, detailed, inspections done by licensed electricians, hvac people and plumbers, and in Dallas, probably a structural engineer.
Make sure the roof, beams, and its stucture is also checked thoroughly.

Love older homes. Which neighborhood are you studying?

I agree with Susan, most of the time listing agent will inform the buyer's agent if there is a back up offer. Talking with your agent will help you, hope you have an agent...

Good Luck

Hi Molly,

From my current experience, rental market is great in Greater area of Dallas. Properties that I have listed always get a multiple applications. Its a really hot market!

Feel free to check out my website at to get familiar with the listings in the area. There is nothing better than educating yourself about the area and be comfortable with it so that you know that is a good deal when you see one!

Obviously, you also need to have a great agent to help you to get everything line up once you find a complex that you like. We have ability to send you auto update daily.

Please feel free to email me at if you need help. I would be happy to walk you thru every steps.
