It's not very difficult. The worst part is normally for your mom, as she will help you make the decision on a home, and then have to sign all the paperwork for you. Most Realtors should not have a problem with it as long as the Title Company accepts the current P.O.A. as it stands. ... more

Real estate in general across the whole N. Dallas area gets my vote. Rentals are very hot right now. Carrollton has been a city of pretty good demand because of the location to freeways and the schools- not a bad choice. Areas to the north are really booming as well so I would not just stake your claim in one area of town. Nort of LBJ is my typical market area so I'm just speaking of what I know in those areas, other areas might prove to be just as good. ... more

Lee Anne, this is simple...if you seriously are contemplating placing your home on the market, I would suggest finding a good Realtor to give you a market analysis...maybe more than one Realtor.

If you're simply curious and don't feel like wasting a Realtor's time and efforts, I would suggest calling a licensed appraiser.

"market value" and "appraised value" typically differ in some ways but in most markets are relatively close.

If you decide you want to rent a house I can refer you to a Realtor. I will not make any money from it I will just refer you to one that likes to work with renters.
Now for the job and apartment. I used google and pulled up Carrollton Texas, there are a couple places that list job opportunities. Then I placed apartments in front of Carrollton and many sites came up for that. In Texas you do not pay the fee with the Realtor or Apartment finder for a Rental, The Owner does.
Good Luck - you will like Texas. Remember to be a fan for out teams now., LOL.

I really like the area and have many friends who bought in the near vicinity. As you mentioned, it is hard to predict would could happen but, that could happen anywhere.
As far as Harvest Run Park, it is monitored by Carrollton's finest and should you have any problems, in my experience, they are fast to respond.
I am aware of a 3/2 1482sq ft for $124,900. call me 214 783 6416

I would recommend at least $1,000 in that range but of course it is fully negotiable. It will also vary if there are multiple offers, you may want to make it stronger etc..

Well it kind of depends are you looking for a 3/2/2 or a 2 bedroom, or are you just talking all homes in general? If you email me what you are looking at I can email you a market analysis for the last 6 month in that zip code which will be far more accurate. We need to compare apples to apples. ... more

It's a pretty good location near the highways (Bush and I35). Sales have been pretty good in there this year. Crime/Safety is probably best answered by the CRO at the police dept. Just call Carrollton PD main number and ask for the CRO and they can point you in the right direction of stats for the area. Schools should be Elementary-Rainwater Middle-Blaylock and High-Creekview. Carrollton also has Academy for High School students. I think Rainwater is an Exemplary school which is amoung the best. If I remember right the building seems not too old, compared to some in Carrollton. I live pretty close if you need help finding just the right house. ... more

Cindy Maves answered:

You didn't mentioned whether your home is presently listed with a Realtor. If so, what kind of feedback was given to the realtor by the buyer agents that showed your home? That feedback is very helpful in giving you some ideas as to why it is not selling. What kind of updating? There some simple and inexpensive things you can do now to have your home show well? What are current days on the market in your area? Your agent would have provided that information to you at the time of the listing presentation. ... more

Bruce Lynn answered:
I think that always puts a hicky on the property. The reason for this is that in my opinion if it has had problems, it's likely to continue to have problems over time....If it has a transferable warranty, an engineers report, and still in good shape I personally might take off 1-2%. If it is missing any of these things, than you might take off more. Of course this can depend on the extent of repairs and if you think they were needed or not. I've seen homes with repair that I did not think was needed. I've seen homes with 3 piers and I've seen homes with 30-40 piers. It might also depend on if the underlying problem was resolved. You can make repairs, but if you don't or can't solve the problem that created the condition, then you might want a bigger discount. If you need help with the offer or deciding what is appropriate feel free to contact me at 214-675-6692, I live in the city next door. ... more

Hello Dale, Carrollton could be a good place to buy a home yes. There are currently 450 single family homes on the market. Plano next to it has 1196 for sale, Lewisville on the other side has 354. I am not counting any new constructions either. So you see, this is why it is a strong buyer's market.

The southern part of Carrollton from Rosemead to LBJ are all homes built from the 80s to the early 90s. As you get closer to LBJ the older (all the way back to 1940s) the neighborhood gets because that's just how growth progressed.

Carrollton has a lot of greenery because of greenbelts. The school disctrict is rated "acceptable". This drives the property values as well as you may know.

I'll be happy to tell you more about Carrollton or other cities around it in this great Metroplex. I invite you to visit my website and call me at 214-289-8555

Just went on the market at $178,950. If you'd like to see it this weekend please call me at 214-675-6992. It is vacant and looks like a short sale opportunity if you can be patient.
