Our clay soil expands and contracts too much and builders don't want to spend the money to build them and buyers don't want to pay to have them.

Chris Hutchinson answered:
Lease option contracts are usually avoided in Texas because of the implications they have to the owners. Most home owners are advised against them. But you could still find a owner willing but the contract would have to be completed by an attorney.

Another option is to rent on a 6 mo lease in an apartment. Or you could have a lease in a house with the first right of refusal if it was out up for sale.

There are lits of options out there but get with a professional that can help you before you make a decision.

Safe is what? If you are looking for crime statistics in a particular area, we cannot give them to you. You can call the local police department. They will be able to help.

Brian Rayl answered:
He comprobado el sistema de la MLS, así como todos los informes de ejecuciones hipotecarias que tengan acceso a, y no he podido encontrar ninguna información acerca de que la propiedad está en venta. Wells Fargo es dueño de la propiedad de acuerdo a los registros de impuestos, pero no muestra cuando se obtiene la propiedad del dueño anterior.

Las ejecuciones hipotecarias son por lo general trata muy bien, y ya que han vivido allí durante 5 años, que probablemente son muy conscientes de la condición de la casa. Si usted tiene el dinero para el pago inicial, probablemente pueda vivir allí más barato comprar la casa que cuando se estaban pagando alquiler a vivir allí. Su situación es única para usted, sin embargo.

Mi español no es perfecto y no me sentiría cómodo haciendo contratos legales en español, pero si desea alguna ayuda en la compra de esta propiedad, tengo un par de agentes en mi oficina que son fluidos en español y me encantaría ayudarle . No dude en enviarme un correo electrónico o llámeme.

I don't think it will take our lifetime, but it's not going to happen any time soon. The city of Dallas has been trying to spur growth in the area:, which is what was used to develop Uptown waaaay back when and this is what's currently going on in Lake Highlands. Expo Park has helped, but it's going to take a serious effort from the city of Dallas to reduce the crime in the area before you can expect it to become an area that's going to appreciate in value in my opinion. If you're curious, go to and browse the area to see criminal activity in the area.

Maggie Hawk answered:
You won't know unless you do some research. Your taxes are based on your property value multiplied by the millage (rate) for your area. So you need to find out your property value compared to other properties.

Here's how things work in my area. Your area probably follows a similar pattern. The property appraiser for your county will notify property owners by mail of the proposed taxes. You then have a certain period of time (usually short--perhaps a few weeks) to challenge your proposed taxes. During that period, you need to build your case and assemble evidence that shows why you believe your property is being valued too high for tax purposes.

To do this, you need to go to the website for your county property appraiser and find homes in your neighborhood that are similar to yours in age, size, and amenities and that are valued by the property appraiser at a lower amount than your home. If you have difficulty finding such homes, then you will probably have a hard time convincing the county to reassess your property to a lower value.

Other factors can also come into play If you have recently purchased your home, your property may have been reassessed based on the sale price. if you live in a state like mine (Florida) that has a homestead exemption, you will find that the values of homesteaded properties (primary residences) will be lower than those of second homes or rental properties.

People do succeed in getting their valuations adjusted, but you have to work quickly and present a good case. Good luck, and I hope that helps.

Warm regards,

RJ is right we are not to offer this information on a "public" website-there is not prohibition to us doing this for you privately though. Please choose a REALTOR and send them an e-mail with the specifics of why you need this and they can help you. I would include things like do you really only want the descriptions for upgrade purposes or do you really want to know what you home might be worth today to sell it or to list it? There are many reasons that a seller or owner contacts a REALTOR for help, you see?

Not sure there is an official boundry, but I would somewhat consider Turtle Creek to be the border?...Uptown to the East...Oaklawn to the West.

We did not get the link to the house, so not sure which one interested you.

It is one of the areas in the metroplex that has kept its values and is always desirable. Preservation Dallas is always on top of things in the area (I'm a member) and rentals do pretty well too. It's close to Baylor hospital so you get a lot of professionals. Rentals start around $1100 to well over 4K.
