I'm not sure I'm understanding your question. Where's your agent? It's her/his job to guide you!

Susie Kay answered:
Have you talked to your agent about your concern? She/he is hired to represent you. If you don't have an agent then I would suggest working with one. It's at no cost to you and you have someone knowledgeable by your side. What's your complain? Perhaps you should complain to their top management. ... more

This doesn't sound like the reason they are breaking the contract. If they want to sell the house a small repair should not matter. Everybody is doing what it takes to sell a house. I personally think with house prices going up at this date (2016), they may have a better offer and could be using whatever excuse they can come up with. You may want to remind them if they signed a purchase agreement, that you would like them to adhere to it. Sometimes if there are too many problems tied to deal, you may want to look for the right one. I often think to myself, if these people are like that, what are the neighbors like. A house is usually long term. I haven't bought a house without talking to neighbors and visiting the area at night just to see if I may have missed something. ... more

I agree with Jordan below. Trulia doesn't support fsbo. I'd be happy to list your home if you decide to work with a realtor. My references are available upon request; some of my client's endorsement can be found at Trulia and LinkedIn.

Generally speaking, you'll get a better ROI on smaller things like a nice patio or good fencing and some nicer landscaping than anything else. In a very expensive neighborhood where a pool is expected you can be penalized for not having one, but this is not that kind of neighborhood. ... more

There are Title 1 programs at Baker Elementary, Cockrell Elementary, Folsem Elementary and Rucker Elementary. You can contact Corrie Edmondson - the District Program Coordinator - at

The purpose of this federally funded program is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and
significant opportunity to obtain high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on
challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.

Prosper ISD ensures this purpose is met by:

- Making certain that high-quality academic assessments, accountability systems, teacher
preparation and training, curriculum, and instructional materials are aligned with
challenging state academic standards;

- Meeting the educational needs of low-achieving children and children in need of reading

- Closing the achievement gap between high- and low-performing children and between
disadvantaged children and their more advantaged peers;

- Distributing and targeting resources sufficiently to make a difference where needs are

- Improving and strengthening accountability, teaching, and learning by using state
assessment systems designed to ensure that students are meeting challenging state
academic achievement and content standards and increasing achievement overall;

- Providing children additional services that increase the amount and quality of instructional

- Ensuring the access of children to effective, scientifically based instructional materials and
strategies and challenging academic content; and

- Affording parents substantial and meaningful opportunities to participate in the education
