Seriously. Who would pay $1650/month for this? My closet is bigger. Plus, it was built in 1952? You might as well save yourself some time and take it off the market, because nobody is going…

The line skews in a few places of what is actually considered Preston Hollow, however, Wikipedia which I've attached to this answer has a great map that shows the actual boundaries of the original Preston Hollow. I work Preston Hollow quite frequently, and I'm always happy to define a search for you.

You may want to post your question in CA so you can get an answer from a local lender. Your question is posted in Texas.

What is your location? I think it depends a lot on the area and the neighborhood. If all the surrounding houses have pools, then it looks a lot better if yours does as well. And anything can add value to a house, as long as it's well-maintained and functioning. ... more

Depending upon what area south of LBJ you are calling Preston Hollow, the houses between Preston and Hillcrest, Royal Lane to NW Highway are small, McMansions, and in-between. Please email or call me and let's discuss which areas you prefer and what you size home/lot you desire.
Have a great 2014 New Year.

Susie Kay answered:
It's not always 1 month rent as it is negotiable. However, since leasing is really hot you'll have a hard time finding a property if you want to pay less deposit. Landlords know that even if you walk away the next applicant is to come in a day or two. The deposit is called a security deposit since it is a security for the landlord if his property is damaged.

If my answer helps, please give me a thumbs up or choose best answer.

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
Only tax lien foreclosures and HOA lien foreclosures can be redeemed.
For homesteads there is a period 2 years unless a court evicts the occupants.
For investment properties the period is 6 months.

A mortgage foreclosure changes ownership immediately and without redemption. If the second mortgagee forecloses, for example, the owner is no longer in title.

If the owner continues to occupy the property after foreclosure, the new owner can evict them.

The second mortgagee must continue to make payments to the first mortgagee, but the first mortgagee can foreclose anyway, taking the property from the second mortgagee.
If the first mortgagee forecloses, the second mortgagee is just out of luck. The second lien no longer exists against the property.

Remember most mortgage notes contain language that the property serves as collateral, but the borrower is personally liable for the unpaid balance.

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
We'd have to call the association to find out. The listing didn't show the amount but it is the largest square footage of those in MLS. The lowest listed dues were $150, the highest $220.

Unit 106 is only 967 square feet, while 111 is 1,188 square feet. It is likely the monthly fee is above $220/month.

Hey Tammy,

Prices in that area are very broad in terms of range, however most homes tend to be on the upper end. Preston Hollow is a prestigious area after all. I can sit down with you and discuss what you are looking for and your plan more in detail any time! Just shoot me an email or text!

Hope I can help!

Kenneth "Kenny" Bebensee answered:
Pick any lender of your choice and get pre qualified first through them. This should not cost you anything. Make sure their upfront on the interest rate, fixed loan or not and points you will have to pay for the loan. Lenders that charge a fee upfront, I would RUN. Home loans are based on credit so as long as you have decent credit and income, you are good to go. 20% down you wont pay to pay PMI (private mortgage insurance) which is about .08% of the loan monthly.

Hope that helps some.

Kenneth "Kenny" Bebensee answered:
Just be careful when dealing with Lenders. They tell you what you tend to want to hear. If they charge any fee for pre-qualifying you, RUN. Most Lenders will do this for free. This is where you really need to start and begin.

It is very difficult right now to buy a house with bad credit. Sub prime loans are gone. I hope this helps.
