Sally Grenier answered:
First of all, a property cannot change title without releasing all liens. The bank HAS to clear up any outstanding liens on the property. Second, part of your closing costs include Title Insurance. You can opt for extended coverage that will cover you if there were any unrecorded liens. Finally, you should talk to your REALTOR about any concerns you have. ... more

Richardson based on days on market and having worked and lived in both is a much more popular area as it is closer to the telecom corridor, tons of shopping and dining and is a short commute to anywhere north of Downtown! Call, Email or Text me an I will assist you in any way I can! You can reach me usually until 10:00pm.

It is not showing as for sale or for lease in multiple listing. So the only way to know for sure would be to drive by or knock on the door.

Since real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods, check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached--visit the area more than once and at different times of day, drive around and look at everything that is important to you, possibly chat with locals, etc., then make a determination. ... more

Nanci Zimmerman answered:
Call Donald Trump and tell him to call your agent and say 'YOU'RE FIRED"---- no seriously.. call the agent's broker to see if there is some personal issues with that agent and ask for a different agent or request to opt out of the agreement. I am sure they will be reasonable.

Best of luck!

Profesional code of ethics prevents Realtors make a comment however we can direct to resources:

Contact city Planing & Zoning committee determined what type of commerical structure has been approved.

Ronda Allen answered:
In Richardson, TX? It depends on where and how long you can stay. There are some really cool new concepts for condo/townhome living in Richardson near the Telecom Corridor along I-75. But, new concepts may or may not hit the ground running. Just a few years ago, the Frisco Square area of Frisco, TX developed a similar concept. At first, it wasn't very well received. Now, they've expanded and have added more amenities and they are filling up fast and become a destination spot for many of us who live in the area. As the commercial developments fill in, these 'city in the suburbs' sites become popular.

Interest rates are still low. Work with a Realtor, pick your location wisely, and put the equity in your own pocket versus someone else's.

Have a blessed day!

Terri Hayley answered:

No, you are not. Zip Realty asks buyers to subscribe to their MLS service so that they can give their agents leads. Once you save a home as a favorite, you are assigned as a lead to an agent covering that area. Unless you sign a buyer's rep agreement or a sales agreement, you are not obligated to use their services.

Happy to help,

Wyndsor Estates is a pretty area of Richardson that falls in the Plano School district. Plano schools are known for being very good and high demand (Miller Elementary is an exemplary school and Murphy Middle school is recognized). This area also has easy access to 190 (Bush Frwy). The homes were built in the mid to late 90's and you get quite a bit for your money.

If you have specific quesions, feel free to contact me or go to my website.

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
You need to get yourself a buyer's agent that will represent YOU. The listing agent works for the seller only and will do their best to get the best deal for the seller.

If there are any liens on the property, they will be cleared before you can close on it. Delinquent taxes, HOA dues if any, or mechanical liens... You will also get a title policy that will protect you against future claims, and that policy should be paid for by the seller, being a bank or not.

I will be very happy to discuss it with you and give you a true value of what it's worth, may be even find out what is owed on it.

Feel free to call me or email me.
