Typically yes, they go in your name...everything in your name.
Maybe 1 in 100 for some reason I've seen stay in the landlords name and rebilled to you by the landlord.

For rentals around Keller ISD area you want to look about 30 days out.
You can see properties here at this link:,23932,23955,23958/
Just be advised that rental prices have gone up, way up. For example right now I only see one rental property in 76244 or 76248 at $1200 or less a month. There are some in Watauga with Keller schools.

I am sorry that is not a question I can truly answer. If you have checked crime statistics than you have done exactly what I would have suggested. I have sold homes in the Keller area for 13 years and have many happy clients who live in there. There are lots of surrounding areas that have good values as well. I tell all of my clients to visit the area you are considering and see how comfortable you feel. Contact me and I can get you a list of homes daily as they come on the market that fit your criteria. I can answer other home buying questions you might have as well. I would be happy to help.

I don't know your area, but I grew up (and still live) in pretty close proximity to railroad tracks. So here's some general advice:

First, you get used to the sound of the trains. You really do. It still may make your home more difficult to sell when it comes time to sell, but if you're half a mile away or more, you'll find that it won't bother you at all after a few weeks or so.

Second, it depends on what's between you and the tracks. The flatter the land, the fewer the trees, the more the sound will carry.

Third, it depends a lot on the house itself--what it's made of, and the type of construction. Some types of construction will block the sound a lot better than others.

Fourth, it depends on the mix of freight and passenger. Where I live, there are both. Really, you don't even hear the passenger trains. The freight trains will make somewhat more noise. And it depends on whether there's a station or grade crossing nearby. If there is, the trains will whistle (long-long-short-long) as they approach.

Bottom line: You'll get used to it. But recognize that if it's a concern for you, it may be a concern to buyers whenever you decide to sell.

Two tips:

First, go out to the property some evening. Bring some sandwiches and/or a book. Then just sit there for a while and listen. See what it's like.

Second, if the house is unoccupied, ask your agent to ask the listing agent whether you can bring some sleeping bags and spend the night in the house. That'll tell you exactly what the noise is like. (Just remember, though, you will get used to it.)

Hope that helps.

They are both great communities. I favor Trophy Club. I help a dear friend of mine buy a house there last summer. The golf course and the club house in Trophy Club swayed him.

Well that is one of those questions that isn't necessarily easy to answer. Yes property values are down but Texas is one of the best states in real estate sales right now.
The outlook by the real estate experts is the market will pick up. In fact is already has. I know we are busy with buyers and renters.
We also property manage several properties. We would Iove the opportunity to meet with you and go over your options.
I work with a team of experts that can help through a smooth transaction.

Hi Xan - 30 days is completely reasonable. Depending upon your lender, you can often close quicker than that. Depending upon your offer, a good agent can "motivate" the seller to move quickly as well by the way they write the offer. ... more

Bruce Lynn answered:
Great neighborhood, great prices, good location, sometimes I feel like there is no HOA in this neighborhood. There is at about $400/year, but for some reason it does seem to have just a little different feel to me. As far as Friendship elementary is concerned, I would visit the school. It's one of the lower ranked schools for Keller ISD, but even these one word labels can have reasons behind them. I'd guess if you visit, you would like the school, like the teachers and be amazed at the condition and resources of these schools.

Below is a link to homes currently on the market in the Vineyards.

Welcome to Texas....just let us know if we can be of service to you or your family.

Depending on your flexibility, meaning be able to accept a variety of neighborhoods and schools, the search could take as little as 10 days or as long as 6 weeks. I would allow about 30 days prior to your intended move-in.

You might find that the move-out of your current property is a critical item. While most properties are posted for availability 30 days prior, some apartments require more than 30 days notice of your move-out. This means you might be stuck with a period of time where you have given notice to move out, but you still haven't found a place to move into. Read your lease for notice of termination.

Some leases have some really awful provisions for early termination, and you might have to pay an extra month's rent (overlapping leases).

So, at least 30-40 days prior to your move, but longer if necessary to give notice on your current place or if you're picky about the new place.

That's a beautiful area in Keller. I know 2 people that built in there. Not sure on price per SF but they are definitely upper end homes. Please give me a call and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We have lived in Keller for about 10 years and we love it.

is it NECESSARY? No, but it's a really good idea. Realtors know a great deal about negotiation and what a developer will and won't accept during negotiations, and beyond.

Welcome back to the USA. I wouldn't even buy now, just get a job here, work 2 years, then you can probably apply for a loan. A lot of local agents will tell you to buy now because they want the business. But in reality, we are still screwed up. Hold off.

Good Luck

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
That certainly doesn't sound right. No showings in 2 months means that the home isn't getting the exposure it needs, priced too high or the pictures are bad and doesn't look inviting to show.

There are however 127 active homes (resales) on the market as of today in vows priced betweeen 90K and 330K.

173 homes sold since January. This means that yes there are buyers out there. It's just a matter of bringing attention to your house.

There are also 44 homes that are new construction priced between 140K and 350K.

How long has your house been on the market and how many showings? What is the feedback to your agent not to you.
