Hello Rebecca, it will depend on each rental management company or landlord. If you have lower scores you may be required to put additional deposits.

You may qualify to buy FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score. Your scores can be raised within 304 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. ... more

I don't think you can "download" anything from Trulia. However, keep in mind this is just a marketing website. This should not replace the assistance of a REALTOR, nor the MLS (multiple listing service). Your Realtor could absolutely "download" a comprehensive list from the MLS for you. The listings you see on here (and other sites like Zillow or are notoriously out of date. If you're in a hot market, it's likely most of the listings you see here are already under contract. Good luck! ... more

I would suggest that you take a walk around the area of Village Shops and determine whether it's too loud for you. Take a walk during different days and times. Also take a walk during special event, I think they have one coming soon next month.

I'm a local realtor and I'd be happy to assist you in purchasing a home at Castle Hills.

It depends on where in the Colony and the upgrades of the home. Are you a tenant or a landlord? I would suggest that you work with a local realtor to assist you.

Susie Kay answered:
You are probably better off renting an apartment than a single family home. Apartments tend to be a little more lenient than an individual landlord.

Bnbrandy answered:
I am a landlord that had a judgement in my favor. I gave my tenants extra time to move because I did not want to see them forciably removed, so I never file the writ of execution. Question is...if the judgement does not have any of tenants' personal information, SS# and DL#, how does it even get record in the credit record on the rental part? ... more

Susie Kay answered:

Thank you for your endorsement about our service. Many home buyers think that as realtors we just find you a home, but our service and knowledge go far beyond just finding a property.

In your scenario, it is a little late to add an agent as you've signed a contract stating that you are not represented. It's important that your agent is with you when you are looking at builder's home or they will not honor the agent's fee. You can always talk to the builder again and said what you mentioned above about no place saying that you can't add a realtor and see what they have to say. It's a hot seller's market out there so it's unlikely that the builder will give in.

I specialize in that part of D/FW. Frisco is the most popular of the three, followed by McKinney. Little Elm High has a bad reputation, no doubt about it. Have you considered Prosper? Great schools and a safe place for your money. Feel free to reach out...I'll be happy to help.

Amy Arey answered:
It's always good to have a Realtor represent and watch out for your best interests (I know...doesn't help you much "now"! :) Most sales reps will require us as Realtors to "register" our clients at a given community before you even see homes there. Let's fact it...the negotiation doesn't stop once you've signed the contract. (Some may even say this is where it really "begins"). Someone else below mentioned that the builder likely would not pay a Realtors commission who came into the process "after the sale" but you can possibly get creative and escalate your sales price (up to you) by a few grand so that the Realtor would still get paid ((if the home will appraise)) and then have the builder still pay commission since it ends up being the same cost on the builder-side. Just an idea....

Good luck...and good luck with your new home!

Celine Sanderson answered:
That could be a factor that they didn't address that they may have needed or wanted to. I'd directly contact them or an adviser to find out if the house's roof has been repaired. With the hail storms in Castle Hills, you definitely need to be safe by double checking. A realtor would be the best bet to find out for sure because he has the resources to find that sort of information out. Hope this helps, Jcarvaja!
