Once you sign a contract, the deal is made. There's no negotiating once they start building.

Hi, Rachael,

Some mortgage brokers would be able to make you a loan if you have letters from your new employers and/or a month's worth of pay stubs. It helps if your new jobs are in the same field as you previously worked.

I'd be happy to put you in touch with the loan officer I have worked with for many years. She has helped a lot of my clients in a similar situation. Just click my profile photo to contact me. And of course, I'd be happy to help you with your home search, too!

Best regards,

Lowell is correct but you should also talk to your broker about this and how buying a HUD home differs from a traditional purchase. Your broker should be able to guide you and help you to make sure you understand the process and can represent your clients to the best of your abilities.

We share the same name! Buying a home is such an exciting time in your life. I have a lender that is excellent with getting you prequalified. It will only take a few minutes of your time to begin the process and I can have a prequalification letter in my hands and we can start looking for homes sometimes that very day! Make sure and find an agent that has time to meet all of your needs. I am that agent for you, I will be available to you 24/7 until we find that perfect home. Please call me at 6824446690 or email

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Utilities need to be on for a complete inspection to be done, HUD will let you turn on utilities temporarily usually for 48 hours in order to have your inspection done, the city of Burleson will not turn on water without someone present at the home to make sure valves are closed and that there are not any leaks. Your agent should be able to help you get this coordinated.

Shannon Creek is a nice neighborhood, there are several others that are very nice such as Oak Valley, Sierra Estates, Thomas Crossing, and Castle Hills, there are also some nice areas outside the city limits that are great places to live.

I still teach Accounting and Business Education as well as Computer Technology in High School and am a Texas Realtor and am proud to say that I would love to help you find your home but I have to admit, in Burleson, you will find everyone I know in the Real Estate Business to be above reproach. Our personal and Realtor ethics demand that we treat and perform honestly with all customers and clients. As much as I would love to represent you in your home search, there are many more just as honest and willing. Would be my pleasure to assist you in any way possible.

For USDA, your city of Cleburne, TX is not eligible, but east of the 67 or north towards Joshua there are areas that would qualify for $0 Down. Other than that you will need a minimum of 3% down for FannieMae or 3.5% down for FHA.

Best of Luck!

Hi Paul
Most of the HUD homes I've sold this way have turned out to be okay but I have heard a few stories that did not turn out so well.
HUD does make it's own rules and if they say no that is pretty much your answer.
Look closely at the price you are paying to see if repairing or replacing plumbing would be worthwhile at that price. Make your decision accordingly.
If I can help further you may contact me at:

Most likely it is. I can easily determine the taxes based on the address. For insurance, we can call an insurance CPA y who will provide free quotes based in the address and you personal information. This would take just a few minutes. If you would like me to help find your dream home or just help with calculations, then give me a call 8172664959.

Thanks Jolene Clarke REMAX

Both of my children go to BISD. Burleson is a wonderful place to raise a family. My daughter is now 16 and has been offered 4 scholorships in acedemics and sports and my son is 14 and loves football.
They have very balanced programs and offer a great science program in elem. and middle school. also the high school offers criminal justice courses, police courses, nursing, prof. cooking, and many other career oriented jump starts. The schools and community is only as good as you make it. If you get involved and have your kids active you'll find it a great place to raise kids! Both of mine have bright futures, good luck on your house hunt and with your family

Chris Hutchinson answered:
Yes there are lots of homes for sale and yes people are dealing. If you are pre-approved or a cash buyer you have the power to negotiate a great offer.

When there is more house for sale the ball is more in your court. All those houses are competing for fewer dollars that are availble to buy them.

Give me a call and I will help you take advantage of the market you are seeing.
