If you're obtaining a loan, your lender will conduct an appraisal. Even though you're planning on putting 77% down... the lender wants to confirm that the property is really worth what you're paying.

With that large a down payment, it's possible they'll conduct a "drive-by" appraisal (just to determine that the house is really there!)... but my guess is that most lenders will still require one.

Ask your realtor to remove all marketing from the internet. Just removing it from the MLS is not enough. Realtors have the tools to delete photos from websites. If your realtor refuses, talk to the Office Manager or Broker in Charge. ... more

Round Rock fired three KKK policemen and convicted a judge a few years ago. They pull over more people for "no reason" than Austin. Bon voyage.

Did you get you situation resolved with your realtor? This sounds like a communication issue. His job is to sell your home and if a buyer without an agent is interested to view the home then he should be showing the buyer your home. What probably needs to be done here is for him to discuss with you that the buyer requested a contractor to look over the upgrades and cost. Then it's up to you to let the contractor in now or after an offer. Regardless of your choice, buyer may walk away and decide not to make an offer or terminate the offer (contract). ... more

Water in Round Rock has a hardness of 11 grains per gallon average, which is considered hard according to USGS standards. Problems with pipes will surely occur in the long run, but problems with your sprinkler valves due to calcium scale are absolutely common in this area mainly because of high evaporation in the outdoor summer heat. Hard water may also cause ice maker related issues. I always say preventive maintenance is an owners choice. I personally dislike dealing with calcium deposits around my faucets, showers and sinks, but above all, the thing I dislike the most is the slippery feeling in your body, after taking a "hard earned" shower at the end of the day with softened water. Its like washing yourself with sea water. The sodium added to the water just wont allow proper soap rinsing and you never get to feel really clean. My house came with a huge Salt Water Softener, with two big tanks that took a lot of space in my garage which is not huge. After a long research, I decided to replace our salt softener with a Vulcan Anti-Scaler from Techno Mechanical Solutions in Austin. An affordable and eco-friendly way to prevent hard water issues without using salts. I was able to do the installation myself over the old softener pipes. The Vulcan requires no maintenance, just install and forget about it. No more salt buying trips to Lowes and carrying those back breaking bags. No more slippery feeling after taking a shower. No more calcium buildup around my fixtures. Treated water is safe for garden irrigation, your sprinkler system will also be protected. Vulcan dismantles prior limestone accumulations in old pipes. Any pipe material may be treated up to 20 inches in diameter. The maintenance free Vulcan is very compact and sits of top of your pipe, saving all garage floor space for your favorite toys. Great for eliminating water lines and improve filtration in pools and spas. German engineering with 10 year warranty. Treatment for a normal size house with up to 1 1/2 inch pipe around $1000. Space saver, effective, simple and affordable. Forgot to mention, my morning coffee tastes better without salt. ... more

This is the q and a sections, it is unlikely Trulia customer service will see your post. You can edit your own listings as Trulia does not edit listings.

It is possible, in case you or your husband qualified for a VA loan. I know a consultancy, arrange a VA loan with zero down payments.
