The rental market usually goes pretty fast, you'll probably want to wait until a few weeks before you actually move down here. When that time comes feel free to contact me by phone or email at (214) 686-1507 or ... more

Christine Schwirtz answered:
The short answer is no. You really should be working with a Realtor. You should not pay and have an inspection untill your offer has been accepted. You may be able to talk to your inspector and see if he will give you a discount on another inspection, however since the inspection is for your protection he or she may not do that for you. I would be happy to represent you ... more

Hi Christina,

If you can't see them before an offer is accepted, you could try submitting offers "subject to interior inspection". However, if the seller receives offers without that contingency, you may still not get accepted. Also, if your Realtor lets you know the seller has accepted an offer, have your Realtor ask the listing agent if the seller is accepting backup offers and if they are, are they still showing the property. Sometimes it's the 2nd or 3rd buyer (backup offers) that actually gets the house.

You can see homes in this price range here:

Deposit typically will be one month rent, unless you have less stellar things in your background than you state here.....slow pays, no pays, bankruptcies, evictions, etc can cause a higher deposit situation, normally no more than two months rent if they will take you at all. ... more

The property value goes down if the area has more rental property than owner occupied properties. I'm looking at moving down to Dallas in the near future and thought of looking in the Lewisville area. I heard that 80% of the properties are rentals. Just wanted to follow up on that. ... more

Those properties are not for sale by Realty Trac. That is an ad to get you to sign up for their legal notice republication service.

Dallas Texas answered:
IF property can't qualify for a FHA loan you can't purchase the property then. Many issues with condo/townhomes which can't qualify for these loans from a home buyers position OR trying resale a property.

I am unconfirmed if you can purchase via a conventional loan. Many more questions require answers prior to any professional rendering an opinion .

Depends, when do you forsee yourself in your new home--if purchasing with a mortgage, you can begin by visiting with any licensed loan officer; be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously; in addition choose an agent to work with, he/she will be your best guide; then go from there. ... more

Ashley J Mitchell answered:
The first question is have you released all your contingencies? If not, your earnest money deposit (EMD) is not at risk given the seller has not performed. If you have released contingencies, then you and the seller will have to come to a signed agreement on what is to be done with the EMD. If you cannot come to an agreement then I would ask if you agreed to the liquidated damages and arbitration clauses of your contract. These clauses will affect the procedure for coming to an agreement. The money will stay in escrow until an agreement is signed. When in doubt in a real estate transaction always ask, what doe the contract say? The contract is the transaction and will have many of the answers you seek.
More importantly, I would advise you to really think about walking away. Although you did not say in your question, this sounds like a short sale. You and everyone involved have probably come a long way. Did you love this home at one time? Can you still imagine yourself in the home? Starting over right now, there is no guarantee that this will not happen again. Short sales are ever morphing beasts that take toughness on the part of everyone involved to get closed. Think hard about it.

Good Morning,

There are many programs out there to help home buyers qualify for a loan. Credit score is just one of the factors. I recommend that you talk and to a local lender to guide you through the process and the steps in case you need to repair your credit score.
