The colony tx rebound? Lol, the city runs itself like non-other. Reason everything developed around the colony and not within. I cannot say they are behind the times since atleast by 1950 most subdivisions had street drainage and street lighting. The colony is only just now "starting" to add those apparent luxory's. Make matters worst, their tax rate is just slightly higher than the surrounding cities and home appreciation, not worth mentioning. ... more

NACA will be happy to work with you. NACA does not use your credit score in any manner, though we do work with you on resolving any charge-offs or collections that have happened in the last two years, and your bill payment history must be on time for the past 12 months.

The NACA program offers no down payment, no closing costs, a fixed below market interest rate, and the ability to buy down the interest rate even further, potentially to near zero.

Just go to the NACA website at http://www.naca.com and sign up for a free Home Buyer's Workshop.

Amy Arey answered:
This truly depends upon what is "on" your credit. Have your requested a copy from the credit bureaus to first make sure that what is on your credit is accurate? There are a number of ways to go about this. Also, there are some lenders with in-house underwriting which are not as stringent with their credit score requirements. Otherwise, I have a great source for credit repair who can help you repair you credit and get you ready to buy a home. (I've sent them multiple people over the years and many have purchased). Obviously...you have to follow the rules and follow what they tell you to do to see results ;-)

Susie Kay answered:
Marisol,

I would suggest that you talk to a lender or two. Some lenders can manual write a loan with lower credit score but they will have to look at the overall picture. Or you may want to work with a credit repair person first and then obtain a loan.

Give me a call at 469-371-2899 if you'd like me to connect you to a lender or two.

Take care!

Chad Roberts answered:
If interested in buying, an experienced Realtor in your area could recommend lenders that could assist with loans for various types of credit. If interested in renting, a Realtor may also have referral for rental companies that work with tenants who may not have stellar credit. If credit checks are imperative and not in your favor, you could always negotiate directly with the landlord or home owner, should you find a property of interest.

I've never heard anyone complaining about The Colony. If you are concern about safety I would suggest contacting the local police department. You can also check https://www.crimereports.com/.

If you are not currently working with a realtor then I'd be happy to assist you. I have friends living in the Colony and they love it there.

Take care,

Seems high. Maybe the system added the cost of the land too. In the end it's going to depend on the level of finsih-outs (upgrades) you select.

Thanks.

Walter Kennedy answered:
No, they do not assist with either moving expenses or locating another property.

This is ideal for someone who has luxury furniture and has the ability to move quickly. The tenant is getting a home to lease at a minimal amount. Alot of people who do this will need to put there furniture in storage until they find another home to lease or purchase.

They also are pre-screened to make sure they are knowledgeable on how homes must be maintained to show at all times.

In order to qualify for an opportunity to lease a property like this the seller will want to get photos of your furniture to make sure it will fit with the current decor of the their home and the quality.

They may also need to do background checks, credit checks and reference checks.

They may also ask that you get bonded and get insurance to cover any damages you may cause.

6% is the normal percentage for full service from a Realtor. in The Colony.
The commission may be negotiated. I have different levels of service I can provide and can adjust the percentage of commission depending on what your needs are.
Let me know if you would like me to prepare a Comparative Market Analysis to recommend a sales price based on recent actual closed sales in your neighborhood.
I am a local expert for The Colony & would be happy to help.

Carol Pease, Broker answered:
You signed a legal contract. Has any work been perfomed? I am not an attorney but I think you should talk to one before you break any contractural agreement. Has your contractor ordered the materials needed to complete the job? If he has he may not be able to return it without paying a fee. There are lots of things to take into consideration in these circumstances. Remember you may get what you pay for. ... more
