Good morning,
Yes, I can create a search for homes with any criteria you wish. Handicap accessible, zip code, price, square footage, school district, you name it and I can narrow down to only homes with your particular needs. Please email me and I would be delighted to help you.

Most leases I have seen have a deposit amount the same as the monthly lease, similar to 1st and last month rent. Are you wanting to lease a home yourself to live in or do you have a rental property? If you are looking for a home to lease to live in, most owners will have a credit application and that usually costs $35+ per adult to run the credit report. This also depends on the owner of the property and if they choose to use a management company or a credit company since they pay a fee to do so.

There are probably plenty of people that do.
There will be major construction over the next couple of years on I35.
Hopefully 820 is done before they start.
Therefore you might try 377 instead to 820 and then cross to Ft. Worth depending
on what part of Fort Worth you want to go to....
You could also continue past 820 and perhaps take Hwy 10 into the city if downtown is where you're going.

You can search for homes in Trophy Club here:

Dear Noemi,

I'm sorry to hear you've had some rough times. By the time you get a foreclosure AND a bankruptcy on your credit report, the FICO score is going to be low. I am a Certified Instructor in Credit Repair, so I can show you how to bring your score back up. But it will take time.

The criteria for accepting a tenant's application is totally up to the landlord, or property manager, for each house. Most will not accept someone with late payments, or missed payments, on a mortgage. Since you say you had a foreclosure, I will assume there were missing payments. It might depend on how long ago these items showed up in your history, but you said it was "recent", so that is going to be held against you. The chances of you finding a nice house for lease where the property manager will let you have it are pretty silm, but you might offer a large cash deposit up front with your application, and see if that sways their decision.

One option is to rent an apartment for a year and pay the rent early every month. Then get a letter from the manager, and submit that with your application to rent a house next year. Offer to set up a direct draft from your bank for the rent. Or, better yet, pay the rent for six months in advance. You will have to take aggressive measures to get your credit rating back.

Whatever you do --- do NOT make a late payment after having filed a bankruptcy!

Contact me directly for more suggestions on what you can do. Good luck.

Happy New Year! ---2013 can't be any worse.

Depending on your true debts, we can use your 627 score and this should work for approval.

Best thing would be to call me and we can handle the particulars.

FW is a great town with tons of things to do entertainment wise. I could recommend several areas but that's hard without knowing a little bit about what you desire in a home/ neighborhood. Established vs Newer neighborhood. Kids? Activities? Commute. All these things need to be considered before narrowing it down. Send me am email and I can recommend some areas and we can start thinking of areas and as the time gets closer I will start sending properties for you to look at and eventually get you in to the neighborhood you decide upon

Good Afternoon
There are no hard or fast rule for allowing pets this is a case by case basis. This is an area where you have to decide what you are comfortable with. Judging by the tone of your email you do not seem very comfortable with the idea, in which case it is probably best to say no. Best of Luck to you!

Mindy Lowry answered:
My best suggestion always is to drive the area you are thinking about and maybe even chat with some neighbors. The weekends are always a great time to get a true feel for an area. There are sites that you can view demographics about areas on. You can go to my website Then click on the local links, click on Fort Worth and go to their site. There are links here to find out more about neigbhorhoods. You can also click on school reports on my site to find out more about an area.

Realtors are not allowed to advise anyone legally about family orienation or racial stats. I just suggest to my clients that they check crime stats and visit areas in person to see where they want to move.

Good luck and feel free to contact me with more questions..

Thanks, Mindy Lowry RE/MAX 682-559-1246 cell

Mindy Lowry answered:
What kind of price range are you trying to stay in per acre? Are you looking for property with a house,or just the acreage? Let me know your criteria is and I can set you up on automated list alerting you daily of any new property on the market. You have to be careful buying acreage because of Ag tax rollbacks and mineral rights. Need to know what you are buying for sure.
