Very rarely do we see foreclosures in Hackberry. I do see one currently on Clearspring. The ones that I have seen needed cash to close as they had significant foundation problems and would likely not finance with conventional financing.

Here is a link of what's currently for sale in Hackberry, including the foreclosure.

Kim Nwachukwu answered:
All of the foreclosures that are available for you to purchase will be listed in the local MLS, and if they are listed in the local MLS then you will see them on the sites like Trulia, Zillow and Realtor.com. You can purchase memberships to various websites that post foreclosure filings, but just because a home has a filing against it does not mean that it will foreclose. It may never be available for purchase. Additionally, the "amounts" or "values" that you see on those sites are misleading. The values are usually the amount of the primary lien that was foreclosed on - which is not the same as fair market value. Fair market value could be more, it could be less - there are a number of factors that go into fair market value, and the factors are different for each property. A foreclosing lender that sells their repossessed properties typically sell them for fair market value less any repairs they need - not the amounts they foreclosed upon. If you are in the market for a home your best bet is to choose a Realtor that can help you gauge the market and find a home that fits your budget and other needs. ... more

I think you would want to check with IPD about that, not on this real estate site.

Good questions. I would still suggest that you get the services of a local Realtor. They will be able to answer these questions and make sure you are getting the best deal on your townhome.
On question 1. Go to the City of Irving's website to see all the information on safe areas.

All properties in Dallas County pay a school equalization tax - it's part of the Dallas
County tax rate. All properties in the CFBISC pay CFBISD school taxes, all properties do. Be careful what you research on the internet, it's kind of like that GEICO commercial, not everything you read on the internet is accurate. When you pull up information on the DCAD sight, you are not seeing a tax bill, you are seeing an information sheet - and the possibility exists that it may not match the tax bill. Your agent should be able to calculate and estimate the correct taxes for any property, I do that for my clients on a daily basis. Ask your agent to calculate the right taxes for you. ... more

You will still have to qualify for the loan so you may have to wait and work on your credit. I have a lender that can help you. Email and I will give you his information.

Kim Nwachukwu answered:
Were you working with an agent before you got into the deal? The builder would pay the agents fee for you, and the agent would be able to answer these kinds of questions for you. If you didn't use an agent I would be curious to know what your reasoning was, especially since it wouldn't cost you anything. If you do have an agent why haven't they discussed these issues with you? ... more

Darrell Hess answered:
Leon, I commend you for trying to address any potential problems your home may or may not have before you sell it. So many try to sell their home without giving these types of things any thought. I will say if those cracks you mentioned have not changed in the years you have been there more than likely they are just settlement cracks. You could probably hydraulic cement those cracks and be fine. I think if there is a problem the buyers inspections will probably find it so it is best to have any issues addressed before hand. This could save you money down the road as price reductions for buyers concerns can be eliminated. I don't feel that doing the necessary maintenance on your home will effect your resell value negatively. ... more

Parts of Corinth, Ponder, Krum are usda areas. I would make sure you talk to your lender to make sure whatever property you look at is USDA.
I am doing one right now, I can help.

Sounds like you need a different agent. I agree with Joe, maybe a referral fee is due to him. I would be happy to help you on the purchase of a home. I work throughout the DFW area.
