To the Saint George couple:

You are asking for a lot of features and a lot of house for the money. There will not be many properties which fit into your parmeters at any one given time. So it is vitally important that we know WHEN you are wanting to move. ...Or, I should say, when you are wanting to buy a house.
I have found two properties for sale now that seem to have all the things you are looking for, and they are in very nice neighborhoods. One thing you did not specify was how large of a lot you would require. But the price range is going to limit what you will get. I also found some other properties that I think might work for your family. If I had your email address, I would be happy to send you the information on them, so you could study them at your leisure. Then when you get ready to purchase, we will have to see what is available a that time.
What is bringing you from Utah to Fort Worth? Is there a job location you want to be close to? Or do you work from home? My point here is that there is lots of information that is needed in order to give you some good answers to your basic question. And if you don't want to talk to an Agent, then it's not possible to get that kind of information in your hands. So I suggest you call or email a good experienced Agent, and then someone can get the details to you. If you will send me your email address, I will forward the info to you. I promise not to call if you don't wish to speak to an Agent.

Best of luck to you!

When you say chickens and a large workshop that changes some things. Certain areas will not let you keep chickens, also unless you find a property with a workshop, you and your REALTOR will need to make certain that there is not a building restriction against building a large workshop. Your price range opens a large part of the greater Fort Worth area to you, the chickens and large workshop are going to be somewhat limiting though. I know you don't want to start the process now since you are not yet ready to move. My advice to you is: when you are ready contact a REALTOR at that point and let them help you narrow down the areas and find what is available for your needs at that point. Best of luck to you!

Most important issue is to interview you for all the details and requirements you are looking for. Are you qualified for a loan which governs how a Realtor can work with you based on lender specifications.

looking at 4/5 bedroom 3 bath prefer all one level need room for some chickens and large workshop.
Budget up to $300,000.00 hoping for 3000 sq ft plus.
Wife caters so a decent kitchen is number one and future wheelchair access is a consideration but would not deter us from right property.
Both large people so no small houses.
As we don't have a timetable,I am loathe to contact anyone till we are ready to move,just wanna know where to start searching please.

If you want to be in the city proper, there are several options. Westcliff has some nice sized lots, out by Lake Worth and off 1187 are also possibilities. It depends on how much land your are wanting and how far from the city you want to be as well as price range. I'd love to help you find what you are looking for.

There are several areas that this describes. Tanglewood, Overton Park, Overton Woods are just a few. What is the prove point and what is the square footage that you are looking for?
