Have you ever walked into a home in that perfect neighborhood only to find that it needs more work than you can afford on the inside?  Or maybe you’ve been looking at foreclosure after foreclosure and just can’t decide how you would make all of the repairs that one of these types of fixer-uppers require. 
FHA offers a program that essentially allows buyers ot roll in the cost of the repairs and updates for their new home into their mortgage. 
The FHA 203K Rehabilitation loan program. 
is an excellent way to turn a fixer-upper into the home of your dreams!
Of course, conditions apply and the maximum loan amount under this program is subject to the FHA loan limit of $271,050, but if this sounds like something you would be interested in, don’t hesitate to give me a call.  I can put you in touch with a loan officer that specializes in this type of program and show you homes that will qualify.

What’s the hottest real estate in Dallas this weekend?  My guess is The Pumpkin Village at The Dallas Arboretum.  Have you been?  I recently took our son, who is really too young to be intrigued by the wonders of the village(he was much more interested in the stem of the pumpkin and whether or not he could get said stem into his mouth without me noticing).  He may not have been impressed, but I was!  And it made me wonder, how have I, a person who constantly expounds on Dallas’ many attributes, never been to the Arboretum?  I’ve come up with several different explanations (Dallas Blooms is always during my busiest selling season, I wasn’t really sure where to park, the concerts sound fun…but finding a Thursday night where both my husband and I can attend is almost impossible), but none of those explanations really justify neglecting this fabulous property for the past 8 years!  So, if you are looking for a fun fall event this weekend (kids or no kids), check it out:  Pumpkin Village at the Dallas Arboretum  and while you are there, take some time to tour and drool a little bit over the fabulous DeGolyer Estate.
