Yes. You may want to consult the attorney at title for details on your transaction.

I am not sure what you consider bad, but quite a few lenders will begin working with buyers who have a 580 credit score. Unfortunately, the process will take longer than the typical 30 days. There are grant programs that they can help you take advantage of through the city, county, and state.

Best of luck!

It is very common in Fort Worth for sellers wanting to keep mineral rights. I personally have not seen a problem in selling a home in the future because of it. I would suggest that you talk to an attorney, though, if you can concern about other implication that mineral rights may have on you.

Good luck!

Not every home in Arlington keeps their mineral rights. My clients hardly ever lose their mineral rights. Even if it is advertised that the seller is keeping them, my clients end up getting the mineral rights.

Its a matter of the buyers agents negotion skills. Some agents let listing agents run the show, and good agents take the show over.

Alot of buyers (and sellers) think one agent is as good as another and never find out what they missed out on till the transaction is over.

If your interested in a buyers agent who is not only a Realtor, but a Broker, Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE, Certified Neighborhood Specialist (CNS), Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR) and a Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource Certified (SFR), click on my name and contact me privatly.

Typically this is the highest rate you would accept for financing. In a contract there are many ways to proved a "get out' for buyers. This is one of them. When I represent a buyer I use all of these areas of the contract to protect my buyer's interest and earnest money. On the flip side when I represent the seller I do as much as possible to tie down the buyer so that they cannot walk away without losing their earnest money. This is one of the main reasons it's important to use an experienced Realtor who knows about the ins and outs of the contract and can use that knowledge to protect you.

Good luck to you.
