Have you found your home? If not you can check my website at for the most current listing on homes on the market. Just keep in mind that typically you'll have to pay more for a home with 4 bedrooms with 3 baths then 4 bedrooms with 2 baths. Of course, it also depends on the updates and subdivision.

Hello and thank for your request for Real Estate Information.

I now have a lease to own program available to my clients, if you have some interest please call, text or email me for more information. 214-802-6708 cell

Agreements – Lease to Own Program
The initial Lease term is for one year, and the Lease automatically renews every year as long as the resident is in compliance with the Lease and other agreements. Before the end of a Lease term, the resident has the right to give notice that he/she does not want to renew the Lease for another term. If for any reason the resident decides to leave the home at the end of a Lease term and is in compliance with the Lease, the full security deposit will be returned.
The resident's financial commitment is limited to the initial one year Lease. The resident does not have to renew the Lease after the initial year. The maximum number of Lease term years is five in the state of Illinois/Colorado and three in the state of Texas.
Over the life of the Lease, Lease to Own Home program expects residents to treat the home as their own- maintain the lawn and garden, remove snow or other debris, and complete minor repairs. Lease to Own Home program is responsible for any major maintenance items.

Purchase Right Agreement
The resident's Purchase Right Agreement (and therefore Purchase Right) is in effect as long as the Lease is in effect, and the resident is in compliance with these agreements.
The Purchase Right Agreement gives the resident the right to purchase the home from Lease to Own Home program at a pre-defined price for each year of the Lease, as long as the resident is in compliance with these agreements. The maximum number of years a resident can rent the home and have the Purchase Right is five years in the state of Illinois/Colorado and three years in the state of Texas. The Purchase Right does not obligate the resident to buy the home.

AnnaSaenz answered:
Carrollton is very safe, particularly North Carrollton. But you need to consider the HOA as well. For example, I live in Estates of Indian Creek/Dominion, which in my opinion is very unfriendly to families. For example, one of my neighbors received an HOA violation for having their kids toys outside. Also, basketball goals and kids playing outside is prohibited. So I would advise before buying a house to talk to the neighbors in the community and get their opinion before moving. This is true of any community. ... more

Hi Rhonda,

There are some homes available for lease with option to buy. As stated below by other professionals, most are not favorable for buyers. What is attractive to you about a lease / option? Do you need more time to save for the down payment or work on your credit? I would like to hear more about your criteria for a home & offer some options. There are some great loans and grants available for qualified buyers.
Email, call or text me so at your convenience. I am available anytime to help! Click on my photo for my profile & more information.

Bryan Song answered:
A lot of my home buyers usually like to move into their new home before the winter so that moving can be much easier regarding the cold weather, however, to answer your question generally I would have to agree with one of the previous comment that as long as you and your agent strategically map out the price, interior attentiveness and the other factors that contribute to a faster sale can all accommodate in a fast and easy experience for your house to sell in carrollton.

Kindest Regards,

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
A contingent contract is one that is fully executed and binding but is contingent on an event happening. If the event does not happen, then the contract may be terminated by one of the parties as described in the contract.

Typical events that create a contingency are
1. sale of another house (owned by the buyer usually) - if the buyer's home doesn't sell, contract may be terminated.
2. approval by the seller's bank - in a short sale the seller's mortgage company may approve a different amount and the buyer can terminate the contract.
In these cases typically the buyer receives his earnest money back but may have paid for inspection, appraisal, survey or other charges and does not get that money back unless so provided in the contract.

The contingency may also be the type that the seller can force removal of. If, for example, the buyer's home does not sell and the buyer has a contingency for that, the seller may accept other offers without a contingency of the second buyer's house selling. If so, the first buyer with contingency can be notified that his contract will be kicked out unless he removes the contingency. Rather than call this a contingency contract, we call this a kick-out contract. Other buyers may propose contracts that effectively force the KO contract to be modified or terminated.

Other types of contingencies are possible.
