The story behind this property was that it was a young couple that had ordered this new house built. For some reason however, they were unable to secure financing when the time came to close, so now it's on the market.

The sad (?) story the agent gave me was that this couple had even written their names on the back patio as the builder was pouring the concrete. Lady Realtard even showed me the names.

Janie and Dennis 2-14-08 (married)

I told the Realtor that this should not be a sad story, but a happy story. This couple now realizes they are in debt over their heads and that if the bank had approved the mortgage, more then likely they would have lost the house to foreclosure within a year.

Renting is cheaper and will help them get out of debt.

Realtard was not amused by what I was saying. She said that "You are a funny guy".

I may be funny, but am debt free!!!

BTW, her Realtormobile was a new Land Rover SUV. That must have cost a pretty penny.

    If I buy the land and build a brand new house NOW, how much does it cost? 250k or 335k

    How much did this young couple spend to build it?

    Back in 2004, it is cheaper to build than buy an old one.

    It's a lot for Texas - especially San Antonio.

    Not sure what property tax is in San Antonio, but in Fort Worth it was 1/3 of my monthly mortgage payment. Ridiculous.

    Shouldn't oil boom make the house price skyrocketing in TX?

    This is in the northside school district area. Taxes are high. Also, this is a gated area. Add $95 per month for HOA fees.

    Texas.
    PBS news hr had a piece a couple of days ago about the wells running dry there. That'd be the water wells. Some crazy number of municipalities are expected to completely run out of water this year.

    But many Texans say that Climate Change is a hoax.
