Typically banks want the home to be empty. They have already had to deal with removing people from the home and they don't want to have to deal with that again.

In addition to the 0% down USDA and VA programs, the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) has a program that is a down payment assistance program for first time homebuyers, or buyers who have not owned a home for at least 3 years. It can be paired with the loan programs mentioned in Tom's answer except for USDA. They will lend an additional 5% on your mortgage with no interest and it is repaid with 0% interest when you sell the home.

My company offers this, however not all lenders participate in this program.

Hello Pete,

You may want to ask a local Realtor. Here in Austin our MLS allows us to pull and create reports going back many years. I do it all the time for specific areas or subdivisions etc. It is very easy to do. I cannot think of any public websites that have a similar service but there may be something.

If you are working with a Realtor they can definitely get this information for you though.

Zina Rodenbeck answered:

The first quarter stats show about a 10% difference for the Highland Lakes MLS, list versus sales. That is an increase from the norm for this area. That is not Highland Haven specific, but the entire Highland Lakes MLS area.

If you are wanting an opinion on a specific property, please contact me and I can work up a BPO(Broker's Opinion of Value) for you.

Each piece of property, as well as each area of the Lake, will vary. To be specific, certain parameters must be known. Overall values are holding good for the area as a whole.

For more information, please contact me.

Thank you,

We have seen a slight decrease in prices and a longer days on the market. The first quarter stats for the HLMLS showed an almost 10% variance in list versus sales prices. Traffic is pickiing up and Memorial Day weekend appears, once again, to be robust.

If you would like additional information about Lake LBJ or particular communities, please contact me directly,

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
Hi Jennifer,
Yes 4 months is a long time unless you have credit issues and they are waiting for your credit score to go up. Is that the case?

Also, if they say it's the title company's fault, is it a question that the title is not clear and they are working on clearing it. Are you sure that the mortgage company can do a loan on a manufactured home? the guidelines for those are even stricter.

Is this for sure a foreclosure or a short sale? Foreclosures don't take much time but short sales can take up several months.

You need to get more details from your loan officer.

Dallas Texas answered:
The seller could accept your offer it does take approx. 30 days - or + close on a home. Keep in mind that upon your closing you could have approx. 30 - 45 days prior to making your 1st mortgage payment.

I am a Dallas realtor and Dallas loan officer in some instances we rebate up to 50% of our commissions which could offset some of your expenses. We do place all of your terms in writing.
