Elizabeth Morgan answered:
Hi! As Realtors it is illegal for us to comment on the safety of a neighborhood.
There is a link at the top of this page "Local Info" click on that link then on "Community Info" then click on the Crime link. There is an interactive heat map & police reports so you can see specific neighborhoods.
I live in North Carrollton & would be happy to send you listing reports that meet your criteria.
You can click on my photo for contact info.

Yes you can. You aren't required to use the bank. They just want a shot at your loan.

Ye,s only one spouse can get a mortgage, however both will be required to be on the deed to the home. Texas is a Community Property State" which means that both will equally own the home even if only one is responsible for the mortgage. One person on the mortgage is good if you are trying to keep income separate in order to qualify for additional investment properties. For more details, contact Hexter-Fair title or Mike Mairs at Prime Lending. ... more

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Assistance (TDHCA) has a Down Payment Assistance Program which loans up to $10,000 towards down payment and closing costs to qualified First Time Homebuyers (Vets don't need to be first time buyers). You don't have to start repaying that loan for 5 years, and it's at zero % interest. Income limits are 80% of area median income. In the Dallas area, that would be $55,280. There are a few other qualifying issues, and you must take Homebuyer's Education. Would this work for you? I am a licensed mortgage broker, making loans all over Texas. I can be reached at barbara@thecokerteam.com. NMLS# 228545. ... more

Good Evening Shantel,

The best person to answer this question is a lender. With lending guidelines always changing, a loan officer will be able to tell you how long you will have to wait after an economic hardship on a student loan. Please feel free to contact me if you need some referrals for lenders. I'll be more than happy to email you their contact information. I hope to hear from you soon!

Make it a Blessed Day!

Anthosm: A buyer's agent's commission is paid by the seller. You are wise to get your own buyer's agent as they will be working for you and can show you all listings in your price range and search criteria. The seller who hires the "Listing Agent", to work on their behalf pays the buyer's agent fees!

Dallas Texas answered:
Your buyers agent should be assisting you with the question. It all depends EXAMPLE: Short sale and foreclosure YES bank COULD have mulit offers.

If an individual property owner ONCE they have an executed contract registered in title. They can accept back up offers JUST incase 1st offer falls through

Many more questions need answers prior to rendering an opinion on behalf of any party
