I'm a realtor who specializes in Frisco, Plano, Allen, and surrounding areas. Each cashback scenario is different so it's hard to state what can be given back without more info.

Word of caution: Some realtors make fake promises for large amounts and then back down later.

Contact me to see what we can work out.

The Gehan team, from the sales people, sales management, to upper level management, is second to none. I've had nothing but outstanding experiences working with this organization. As a Realtor of 14 years, I always recommend and trust Gehan Homes for my clients searching for new construction. Quality product at a fair price = great value. Frisco is a great place to buy and Gehan is currently building in a community called the Arbors at Willow Bay:

It sounds like it"s the same subdivision I just moved into myself. I see this is dated for last year. I would be interested to hear what you decided to do. Troy

You'll get more home in Prosper than Frisco. However, having said that, Frisco is more in demand than Prosper.

I'd be happy to assist you and discuss about your investment goal if you are not currently working with a realtor. I've helped quite a few investors in purchasing their homes and you can decide where to purchase once we have our discussion. As I'm not allowed to post my phone here, feel free to reach out to me through my profile.

I just learned that inspectors "assume". My house is very old, almost 60 years.. The walls are mostly cement, and the basement has never been insulated, and therefore, gathers moisture quite easily.
Typically, I run a DE-humidifier but it died a bit ago, and I haven't replaced it. On top of that, we did have a leak from an upstairs bathroom pipe for sometime, and it created a bit of harmless mold due to moisture.
The mold was cleaned thoroughly.

However, the inspector just assumed that there MUST be severe foundation issues. Buyer backed out

I am fuming. There never has been any foundation issues. NO cracks, no wobbly walls, no water seeping in.

He cost me a buyer, and now I have to go get what I already know, and pay for a professional to come in and put it in writing. I should be able to sue for cost of sale of house!!

Hi Angeline,

I am base in Plano and your best option is to purchase the new home by Calatlantic in Frisco as McKinney taxes as set to go up in the coming years base on not enough schools and the number of people moving to area vs Frisco where the new schools are already build and schedule to come online in 2017 base on previous bonds.

But before you go off and talk with the builder I would advise you first to get qualified by a Lender and select an Agent to represent you with the negotiation. This will force the builder to offer up some additional incentives. I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, this will allow you to make the best decision for your family. I can be contacted for a FREE no obligation consultation.

Hi! I am curious how this turned out for you. We have an investor that is flipping a home into a senior living home on our street. Like you, we are in a neighborhood with an HOA and lots of children. There is a state statue that permits this here that overides our HOA bylaws. I am pretty upset. Our board says our hands are tied and this will be the first home like this in the neighborhood of 600 homes. ... more

Prosper, TX
I was currently having a house built, but it just seems that we are having so many issues with the builders. First it started that they were leaving beer bottles and cans all over the property, then an appraiser came in a noticed that the work was sloppy and the foundations was poor. To top it off, my family and I go to look at our soon to be home and we have found what is called to be a "code brown" because one of the builders have taken multiple bowel movements in the house. Not in the bathroom, no, the mess was found in what was supposed to be my closet. Even though the bathroom was located right across the hall, the worker decided to take multiple bowel movements in the closet. How unprofessional! Now the house is crawling with bacteria and we are not closing on it. It's truly disgusting that this occurs so often in this company that they actually have the "Code Brown" name for it. I wouldn't be surprised if they had a "Code Yellow" too. If you have purchased a home from them I hope for you that it isn't infested with the bacterial and feces that this house now has, maybe even E. Coli, we can't be too sure. I truly feel sorry for the next owners because you are now hanging your clothes on top of a stranger's fecal matter. In addition to our disgust, when we sent in a complaint about what we found, the workers said we were being unreasonable and this happens sometimes. No, this is unacceptable and this company should be embarrassed. If you're moving into Creeks of Legacy in Prosper Texas, be aware that these builders have no respect for your home and probably have code browned your house as well. ... more

Susie Kay answered:
Did you purchase the home as an investment property and didn't disclose that to the builder from the beginning? Also I'm assuming that you are using DHI Mortgage and didn't disclose that it's for an investment property. I understand that the rates for investment property is higher than primary resident but this is something not to fool around with. The lender can call off the loan. I had a client once wanting to do exactly what you did and I took the time to explain to them. Where was your agent when you purchased the home?

If you do not plan to live in the property (I'm assuming you don't) then I would suggest that you sell it OR try to talk to DR Horton and the mortgage company and see whether you can work something out.

Good luck!

Check your easements! Gather information from the county building department and you will learn more about your prospective investment. Pros to corner lots are they tend to be larger, giving you more to work with and land values tend to rise overall in time. Cons can be the busy intersection or restrictive easements. Good Luck! ... more
