The short answer is NO. Paragraph 4A(1) of the Texas residential real estate contract states: “If the property does not satisfy the lenders’ underwriting requirements for the loan(s), this contract will terminate and the earnest money will be refunded to buyer.”
If you are purchasing a Spring Texas house on the resale market, paragraph 4A(1) protects you from having to buy a home that doesn’t appraise. The same level of protection may or may not exist in the purchase of a new construction home. This is because new home builders use their own contracts as they are not required to use the Texas residential real estate contract.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all. Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result. I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
