Susie Kay answered:
Those townhouses are lovely but typically builders do not sell their homes to investors. They are afraid if the homes are rented the renters do not take care of the property so it drives the neighborhood and the price down. Also some home owners will not purchase a home where there are many renters in the neighborhood. If you really like this townhome you can purchase and live in it then rent it out later. You probably need an approval from the HOA, though, or you purchase a pre-owned home for investment.

Farmers Branch is centrally located and there will be a lot of demand for renting there.

When I search the Farmers Branch listings on Trulia I don't see it. If it is that hard for me to find it must be impossible for potential renters! I was going to do another posting…

Hi Tamitexan,
There are many reasons why one property might sell for more then another, even if they square footage is different.
It has to do with location, amenities and demand. Things you might not think are important, will effect the value as well, such as public services (police, fire, schools), proximity to recreation, proximity to transportation and jobs and so forth. I recommend you begin a working relationship with a local Realtor to get excellent answers to your questions and the help you need to purchase a property. ... more

Extra living will be good or if you have a teenager, it could be their "school project" room. You can also make it into a bedroom and a full bath.

In Texas termites and foundation are very common. It's just a little all over over.

mjp972 answered:
I own one of the homes in Branch Crossing. The area is now "coming back to life" after the market took a major hit. The nearby DART station is something that has helped. There's a lot of redevelopment happening around it. The city of Farmers Branch seems to be giving this area a lot of attention. The location just can't be beat. Since I travel a lot, I'm particulary glad that it's a relatively cheap cab ride to either airport. Holt is correct. Many of the older homes that you have seen are being held by investors. ... more

Brian Rayl answered:

Builders are always flexible... just like any other seller, they price high and then negotiate down.

I would caution you though, that even if you are working with a builder, you need to have a real estate agent representing you and watching out for your best interests and negotiating on your behalf. I don't have the information that you are asking about right now, but if you will contact me, I will dig deeper for you and get you some information on who the builder is and what their prices/specs are.

Let me know,
