Thomas, What is it you have in mind with this property? I am not a hard money lender but I could possibly partner with you and bring the money to do the deal if it makes sense for me financially. ... more

Good morning Jaun,

Anything is possible if you are not looking to do this in the heart of Austin. Have you thought about the Cedar Creek area? It's still pretty close to Austin and land is affordable. How much land are you wanting to build on? Give me a call anytime if you would like to just pick my brain , I would love to help you. 512-299-4928

This is something you will need to take up with a real estate attorney. May not be possible to divide.

Felipe Garcia answered:
Foundation problems can become very complex. I would contact the condominium HOA and advise them of the concern. I have worked with several properties that had foundation issues. The foundation is just part of the concern. Finding the underlying cause for the shifting is vital. Some foundation problems are the cause of expansive soils, plumbing leaks and at times poorly drained areas. Foundation problems are manageable and may be resolved, but they may be extremely costly. Unresolved foundation problems cause more damage to the structure over time. It is ideal to repair the foundation early before additional structure or plumbing problems develop. ... more

Your best bet for future resale would be to go through the permit process now. The longer you wait the more money it is going to cost you.

Christi, I do not live in Steiner Ranch myself, but live nearby and have many, many friends and clients who live there, and I spend a lot of time with them and stay connected. They all seem to be very very happy with their decision and love living there! Overall, Steiner Ranch is an awesome master-planned community and there are many many benefits to that area, both within Steiner Ranch and just outside of Steiner Ranch. These include access to the lakes, nearby shopping, golf courses, an airstrip, etc. And there are also other SAHM's of course as it is a very large community. They also have a great wine club of which I am a member, Steiner's Winers...

If you're not yet working with a specific Realtor, I would be happy to help you as I do specialize in this area and have been doing so for many years. I am a top agent with the #1 rated Real Estate company in the United States and and Austin, Keller Williams Realty, and am a Master Instructor who teaches Buyer Representation, Relocation, Negotiations, etc. I also have a great team I have assembled of lenders, inspectors, etc. to assist us throughout the process. Additionally, I do not charge anything for my extensive services and work very hard seven days a week to exceed my clients expectations!

Feel free to call me and I will do all I can to assist. Joe

Find a good Realtor to help you there in Florida. Any good Realtor always has several reputable lenders from which to choose and then you're on the way. Some lenders won't deal with USDA because of limits on their charges and the extra paperwork (isn't it always that way when the Government gets involved?)

Best wishes and good luck.
