There can be several reasons. The most likely is that Texas is a "non-disclosure" state so services such as Trulia don't have access to publicly recorded data on sold homes. Your best bet on looking at comparable sales is your real estate agent. ... more

Again, that depends on where in Dallas.

Pick 1 Realtor and work with him or her.

Kim Nwachukwu answered:
People purchase homes with rear entry alleys all the time. I think it is more important to view what's going on in the neighborhood as a whole than to be overly concerned about the alleyway. If one home has an alleyway then most of them on the same street or in the same subdivision will also be on an alley. All the neighbors come and go the same way, so I think it's important to know your neigbhors and watch out for each other. Of course that is also true of front entry properties! I wouldn't rule them out unless it makes you feel uncomfortable personally-Dallas has many great neighborhoods designed with them. I would have to say that a rear entry home is not my own personal fave, but if I needed or decided to move, and if all of the other factors, offerings and amenities at any given property or neighborhood fit my need then I might be convinced to consider one. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
You don't need to include a clause for the lease transfer. That's automatic. However, you still may want to cover that in your offer.

No, it's not handled between the buyer and tenant after closing. The lease transfers. Whatever is contained in the lease now--including amount to be paid, termination date, and other provisions--becomes the responsibility of the new owner and remains the responsibility of the tenant.

Tip: If you're buying a house with tenants already in there, make sure that their security deposit is transferred to you. When they move out, it's the current owner's responsibility to refund the security deposit (minus any legitimate deductions).

If you're buying for cash flow, ask for documentation from the seller for the last 3 years on income and expenses. Schedule C of their 1040 works well; no one is going to inflate their income or minimize their expenditures. That'll tell you pretty accurately what the true income and expenses are.

By the way, I question whether you're a "fellow agent." The questions you've asked are understandable from a buyer, but not from an agent. Nothing wrong with admitting who you really are.

Hope that helps.

When the bank is ready to sell it will be listed in the local mls. At that time any realtor can schedule a showing with you.

Sometimes just a couple of weeks...sometimes a couple of years or more.
We just never know.

If you have a particular house in mind, I perhaps can set up a search for you and see if I can determine who the contacts are.

Kenneth "Kenny" Bebensee answered:
I think you mean condo, right?

If you do mean condo, yes all owner are all equally responsible for the outside up keep and the maintenance. Inside is your responsibility. HOA (home owner association) dues are the fees paid monthly by owners to maintain the property. Each HOA has it's own rules and regulations. You can view these before buying your condo or during the option period when you are purchasing. Your Realtor can assist you with any info at that time.

Hope this helps.

You should be talking with your agent and not us. It is illegal and unethical for another agent to comment when the principle (you) are working with another agent.

Talk to you agent.
