DR Horton has several new homes available or under construction in their community, Dorado Ranch, located in Northwest Fort Worth. Because of their location, they qualify for 100% financing with a USDA loan. This can result in a savings of up to 3.5% versus a standard FHA loan! If you are a first time home buyer or have owned a home in the last 5 out of 8 years, you may qualify for an $8,000 or $6,500 tax credit, respectively. For more information about these homes, please call, email, or contact me through my website. I would love to assist you in finding the right home. Please remember, the salesperson represents the builder - not you, and it is important to have someone on your side who knows the market and values in the area.

Over the course of 7 + years of selling homes in the area, I have worked with DR Horton on several occasions. Overall, the experience was good and my clients have been happy. That is an excellent start, but the true test is how the company handles warranty requests and complaints. In the last three months, I have worked with two clients who were selling their DR Horton homes. One client was in Heritage in Keller, Texas, and the other was in Santa Fe Enclave in Fort Worth, Texas. Keep in mind that these homes were 3 - 5 years old and well out of their typical warranty period. After the buyer's inspector found a few items that were recommended for repair, both sellers contacted DR Horton to check in with them. To all of our surprise, DR Horton promptly repaired the items at no cost to my ...

LGI Homes just sold another new home in our Deer Creek subdivision.  Congratulations to Sabir on the sale.   The Lee family chose a Colorado plan that will become their new home.  The Lee family is a typical new home buyer for LGI Homes.  They are currently paying rent of about $900 per month and have never owned a home before.  They were able to buy a new home today at a monthly payment comparable to their rent and they also qualify for the $8,000 first time homebuyer tax credit.  They will be moving into their new LGI Home in the next 60 days.  LGI Homes is excited to be in the new homes market in Fort Worth.

The other day I was meeting the furniture rental pickup truck at one of my staged homes in Fort Worth TX that just sold. I'd loaded the last few plants and a table into my car and was waiting for the knock on the door.Well the knock came, but in walked the mother and father of the new buyer. They were there to measure and help her get a jump on moving into her new home.The mother said she was delighted to meet me as they had enjoyed seeing how I had furnished and accessorized this beautiful townhome. She made special mention of the fact that seeing the staged home photos really made a difference. Her daughter, while browsing online had seen the photo of the kitchen and said "Mom come and look at these flowers!".  The vase was on the island where she hopes to make cookies with her girlfr...

Here is Part Three of the spacious 2022 sq ft (per the builder) brand new home... and this final chapter features the Master Bedroom. As you can see from the picture below... the master bedroom is quite spacious.  Room enough for a huge bed and both a night stand on the left side, and a desk on the right side. Also shown below is a decorative table on the rear wall... with room to spare.  It's a perfect place for decorative accent pieces, or to display full flower or bud vases.                   As you can see below, that is a pretty good-sized table... similar to the type that decorators often place behind the sofa in either a living room or family room. Opposite the foot of the master bed (of mistress bed if you so choose) is a triple dresser... with lots of room to spare.  And... the...

After being totally blown away by the gourmet kitchen of this wonderful home, take a look at the Family Room, shown below. The view is from the kitchen... looking over the full-length serving/breakfast bar, and into the family room.  Notice the full wall of windows on the left side... which is the rear of the home.  On the other side of those windows is a very nice-sized covered patio... great for bar-be-que'ing all winter long... if you call what Fort Worth has... winter ?                      Also shown in the far left of the above picture is the wood-burning fireplace.  It is not simply a "show" fireplace, but actually burns real live wood... unlike some of the homebuilders in this same price range.  Also shown is the cast-stone mantle, surround and hearth... a great accent for the f...

I was showing homes to a very nice buyer today.  We were getting along very well... sharing concerns, asking and answering questions... and of course, pointing out all the great places to show while we were driving around. And then... we came to the coolest home.  And wow... did it have a kitchen that really makes you go WOW !                       The above picture is taken from standing in the family room... with my back to the back of the sofa... and looking into the "working end" of the kitchen.  I think it's safe for me to call this a "gourmet" kitchen.  Super natural wood stained cabinets... and the hanging cabinets are 42"... a really great height for cabinets.  The buyer just loved the medium cherry'ish stain, too.                       Above is another picture taken from the br...
