I'd be happy to discuss with you. Dallas Fort Worth is huge and there are many nice areas with good schools. In terms of the 3 cities that you mentioned, Sunnyvale is more rural, and Richardson and Mesquite are more city like. I think what you need to consider is your budget for your home and the size/age of the house that are interested in, your commute to work, whether you like a more rural feel or city feel etc. I used to live in CA where as parents, we fight for homes in a good school. Here in Dallas Fort Worth, we have plenty of good schools and parents have the freedom to select a place to live.

Give me a call if you'd like to discuss in detail.

I do believe that most of these replies are from agents whose obvious best interest is self-preservation.
I buyer's agent IS NOT FREE. It costs the buyer THOUSANDS of dollars that is reflected in the higher selling price needed for the seller to get in order to cover the commissions. DUH! Sure, the agent would have received the full commission if that had been agreed upon between the seller and the Realtor. BUT, the agent would have LOST the sale if I were the potential buyer because he wanted to keep money he DID NOT EARN. In my case, I am buying a property that I have rented from the seller for two years, know in and out, know the market, etc., The seller did not even need to list the property, but chose to get an agent. I have saved the listing agent all of the trouble and work of marketing and showing the property. That should be worth at least 2-3%. ... more

It depends on how the contract is written. It's best to read your contract again and consult with your realtor. If you don't have a realtor then consult with your attorney.

I don't think this website is monitored for any fraudulent activity. I would suggest that you work with a local realtor to assist you. In this case you know everything is for real.

You need to call a local realtor who can look at the MLS system to answer your question. There could be a number of reasons why it was taken off the market and whether it's still available. ... more

I would suggest that you read the contract again. Does it ask for the seller to replace it or fix the ceiling?

I applied for a home loan few weeks ago but did not qualify. The last time I went through my credit report there were all sorts of things on my record including messed up addresses,bankruptcy and tax liens to dispute, and the companies all dropped it off my record. After searching through the internet for help i found this email address on FHA blog.. COMPUTERWORM.HACKER@HOTMAIL dot COM, The goodnews is that this man fixed my credit scores to 758, removed tax liens, eviction and bankruptcy off my report, he increased my credit limit and credit leverage. Still surprised at how Its just so fast and easy to push the dispute button at the credit agency website with this hacker. He just did mine and asked me to check back in 5 days and i confirmed already my credit score is at 758, the negative and derogatory items fell off. You can contact him and worry no more on buying a home with low credit scores. Hope that helps everyone looking for help. ... more
