Andrew Smith asked:
Trulia had been the only real estate website I use because I could sort my search by "price per square foot" rather than just price. It appears that the option has been removed.…

I agree with Robert in that there are a lot of moving parts here, however going to 55% DTI puts you in a position to be a blown transmission away from real trouble. At that debt level you will be 'house poor' and that's no way to live.

I have an alternative program that like a USDA loan requires no down payment. In addition, you can live anywhere, not just in the areas USDA lends in. Also, I require no closing costs or mortgage insurance, so we can probably get to a sensible payment and still buy a desirable home. Also, I do not consider FICO scores, just payment history on debts within the last 12-24 months.

Check out the details at, and get to a workshop to start the process by learning about the program. You can enter your zip code on the left side of the screen and the locations and dates will come up. I am doing a workshop in Ft. Worth April 5, at the Eugene McCray Community Center, located at 4932 Wilbarger Street, Fort Worth, TX 76119 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM. I hope to see you there.

Not all the subdivisions in Trophy Club have HOA's. One of the newest areas in Trophy Club, the Highlands, with an HOA, is very reasonable. the monthly amount is only $20.00. The Association had a neighborhood BBQ last year for all the residents. I agree with others that it seems that the Associations in this area appear to be accommodating. In Roanoke, only the newest areas have HOA's. ... more

What a beautiful place to live!! I don't live there but I know someone who does. It is a private gated community and your name has to be on the list in order to be allow in by the security guard. You must also present I.D.. The community has cameras throughout the streets. I believe it is one of the ways the security people make sure you go where you are suppose to go. Grocery shopping is near by in Trophy Club or you can hop on to the freeway and get to Southlake in about 5 minutes or less. Southlake has plenty of upscale shopping and restaurants. Vacquero is tucked away from the big city, but not too far if you want some city life. ... more

Damon Williamson answered:
Well this is a tough situation. If you where my seller I would try to get the buyers to bring a little more to the table and you guys offer up a little more. I know that you are already bringing money to the table but the appraisals will stick with the house for 6 months typically and this may be your only shot at getting it sold. Work with what you have the best you can. ... more

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
They are running about 3 weeks to process at the moment, according to inside sources.

So, it depends on when you put your request in as to whether it would be out in time for closing 11/2. Check with your loan officer.

We expect them to be congested for some time to come, and that people applying at the last minute will be disappointed that they missed the 11/30 deadline.

Usa Resident answered:
It depends where you are moving from. The last I checked, Texas was still part of the USA. If the majority of the country is in real pain, don't expect people moving to TX for a better life to have a lot of dough to plunk down. The thing you guys should remember is that the population is aging and retirees cannot pay high property taxes. No income tax is nice but remember you don't pay income tax unless you are making money. Beyond that just about EVERYONE has experienced a tremendous loss (either on real estate investments or stock or both). Try not to gloat - my experience has shown that although you may not be suffering today because your end of the boat is still above water, don't expect it to remain that way if the rest of the ship is on its way down. ... more
