Yenny Henriquez answered:
MLS numbers are the unique identification numbers for every listing in the state. You can simply google the # and see if you are able to gain information on the property. However, the information you find online may or many not be the most current and the most accurate information. For that, you would need to gain access to the local Realtor's association and look in the system. This is only given to agents whom have joined the association. My suggestion would be to find a realtor and give them the ML number of the property you are interested on and they will send you the full listing and will let you know if it's available or not. Good luck to you. ... more

Susie Kay answered:
It depends on the builder, the updates of the home, the square footage of the home, etc. Have you discussed this with your realtor? Have you looked into both new construction and pre-owned? What is your budget? I'd be happy to assist you if you are not currently working with a realtor. You can call me at 469-371-2899.

You can still buy the home or walk away, that is your decision and that is why you have the option period. If you decide to proceed, make sure that you have the home inspected thoroughly and the damaged has been repaired.

Good luck!

Tamika Goree answered:
That is correct. The Listing Agent and Buyer's Agent split the commission equally. If you signed a Buyer's Rep Agreement with your Broker it will also state if there are any additional fees. I have never heard of an agent charging an additional fee but you should definitely read over your agreement that you have with your agent.

I hope this information has helped you!

Make it a Great Day!

Dear House Hunter,
I am sure you are also looking for many other qualities in an agent, not just one that represents buyers, the experience on both sides of the transaction is invaluable. Please remember to also look at experience and get some referrals, meet with a few agents to see which one is a good fit for you. Please read reviews and look at what others have said. Trulia is a great source for this information.
Let me know if I can help, happy house hunting....

The pool wont be a big concern. You need to look at a home with good insulation, Radient barrier and newer AC minimum of 16 Seer but higher would be better also be sure that the tonage is adequate for the Sq feet. I have a 4100 Sq ft home in Southlake wth a pool my summer payments were $350. ... more

brandoncbates answered:
My family has lived in Myers Meadow for 20 years-we bought the first home built in the neighborhood. The people are absolutely great and the neighborhood offers everything a family could ask for, with the exception of a community pool. There are two beautiful playgrounds for young children, a large pond with fountain and a smaller pond, two tennis courts, bike trails through nature preserve, sidewalks throughout, two large grassy community areas, and the whole neighborhood is hidden from Southlake Blvd by large rolling hills and beautiful landscaping. Homes are around 4,000sqft and run in the low 400,000s. I highly recommend Myers Meadow for raising a family or retiring! ... more

Annette Lawrence answered:
A good start would be....which of the potentially 49 other states would you target as the referral destination? If your folks are going to Florida, would they be heading to Miami or Tampa or Jacksonville or Orlando?

As you can see, it's a bit difficult to forecast what needs your moving clients will have.
Larry suggested, since you are on Trulia, by choice, you can leverage your presence to achieve your referral objective. Start thinking ..... RECIPROCITY! That is how you create a 'GO TO' community of professionals with whom you have a common investment.

Don't resort to schlepping, but choose to build through reciprocal support.

Best of success to you,

Bruce Lynn answered:

If it is not specifically listed for lease, this is often a tough obstacle to overcome, as most owners need the equity to purchase the next home.

Bruce Lynn answered:
At this point it is inventory and price vs number of buyers. I consider this builder good to excellent quailty for what you get....or in other words good value. There are other builders in different price ranges and varying levels of quality if you don't like this one or prices. I think you also have to think about Southlake. Many if not most people are there with families, want great schools, and don't always want the least expensive home in the neighborhood. While they are probably good value for Southlake...not exactly what every family is looking for....smaller yards...smaller price range, etc. Here is a link to other newer homes in Southlake.
