Good Morning
As Joe said it would be nearly impossible to answer that question. With any home that you are considering purchasing one of the most important things that you can do is to have a home inspection performed by a highly qualified inspector! Nonly a home inspector can give you anacurate gauge on the condition of the home. I can not think of another reason this information would be important, so if I am incorrect please let me know!

There is not much in this area at $1000 or less any more.
Prices have just gone up so much due to high demand.

If you have bad credit, you will need to do something to make an owner interested in you.
Something like offering to pay 2 or 3 times the normal deposit.

Otherwise it will be very rough going in my opinion.

Credit shows your willingness and ability to pay your obligations, so with bad credit, you're asking an owner to take on risk and you may likely have to pay them for taking on that risk in today's market.

You can search for Bedford rental properties at this link:

In most markets it is no longer a buyers market has the amount of homes for sale has sharply declined and the amount of buyers has increased. You cannot base offers on asking price as homes priced to sell often sell for mor ethan asking. A good buyer broker can easily guide you in your market. ... more

The best source of information AND to get private showings of properties is with your own Realtor. Sounds like you're not working with one yet. I'm sure youll get some responses from agents offering their services. You can also ask your friends, family or co-workers for the name of an agent they'd recommend. Good luck! ... more

Hello,

I would look at Rustic Woods of Bedford and the Village of Oak Park. Both these areas are in your price range and are holding values.

Lita

Partly, I will give you my opinion....this is not a scientific study :) . Partly from a real estate value perspective.

The look of a cultured market tub will give your home a more updated look therefore showing better and perhaps selling better in the future. I do think from personal experience that they cool the water off quicker. I would be more concerned about the size of the water heater. Make sure you have plenty of hot water, then it won't matter....enjoy that cultured marble tub!!

We sell homes in Southlake, Westlake, Grapevine, Colleyville, Keller and for that matter most of North TEXAS.........let us know if we can assist in selling the home you are moving from. Be sure and check out our web site!

Dave Muti answered:
It should be a buyers market for some time to come so I would not rush into something if your credit is bad. My suggestion is to sit with a local mortgage planner and have them run your credit. Then put a plan in action to raise your scores and work on any debts you may have with a target to purchase in the first or second quarter next year. Let me know if you have any further questions.
Rgds,
Dave Muti

Bruce Lynn answered:
It's a big question mark. Three years ago on properties in the city, no one seemed to care. My thought is if you have already moved through your inspection and option period would be to keep them, but it is hard to put a value on them. You might get a royalty check for $13/month for the rest of your life so $1000 might be a good deal for you. You might not get any production from it and maybe oil goes to $1000/barrel next year and they're work lots more? Tough to tell. What is your realtor saying? Many mineral rights were severed from the surface rights in Texas long ago, so in my opinion resale would not be hindered in the future. You might find out from the neighbors if they have signed leases, what bonuses have been paid or are being discussed and if anyone is yet getting production so you can better determine the value. ... more

Dallas Texas answered:
Actually if you had a real estate agent could be another option just as long as the seller excepts a real estate agent /realtor to represent you and the seller pay for the buyer agent representing you.

There are standard practices that all sellers MUST follow per the laws in the state of Texas whether they have a listing agent OR a For Sale by Owner

With a real estate agent your offer would be submitted on the form authored by the State of Texas for any property purchased. Also the fact the realtor can do the entire follow thru confirming you comply with the contract and the seller complies with there end of the obligations per the State of Texas

Having an attorney can be expensive UNLESS a commercial property?

IF you are purchasing a single family home an attorney may not have the other resources for your benefit

Are your pre-approved to purchase the property? I am a Dallas real estate agent, realtor, and a Dallas home mortgage loan officer I can assist you

Contact my office if you have any further questions
