Hello Glasshalffull19762, there are many factors and the address is missing to answer your question. Is it the one for 1.2 mil? You may consider 5% down jumbo from a minimum 720 fico score up to 1.5 mil and minimum 660 to consider 10% down jumbo up to 2.5 mil.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the purchase.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms, baths, acreage and the maximum payment/price you are considering you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

You would need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for you and your children whom will be purchasing with you. Check out the web reference link...

Really? That is what ruins neighborhoods. No obligation to pay means you don't care about where you live.

Save yourself time, aggravation and money in the long run - and hire an attorney! If you don't perform and complete the eviction process "properly," you will have to begin again...from the beginning.

Good luck!

Yes, you can buy a home with your name only. However, Texas is a community property state, meaning it's owned together and I'm assuming that he'll live in the house as well.

I'm not an attorney and would highly suggest that you consult with one BEFORE purchasing a home if you'd want to keep the home for yourself if he leaves. Let me know if you need me to connect you with a local attorney or two. You can call me at 469-371-2899.

They are both great additions, but if you want a larger neighborhood with more pools and common area I would go with Mira Lagos.
