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.
Jill made me feel like we were genuinely in the BEST of hands for the duration of our home sale!... read moreJill made me feel like we were genuinely in the BEST of hands for the duration of our home sale! She is absolutely incredible at her job and we never had to worry about anything because the second we begun to wonder about anything, she already had an email or text on the way to put our minds to rest. :) I really cannot thank her enough for the amazing job she did with selling my first house. I always felt like she made my husband and I a high priority and I am beyond elated with the impeccable work she did for us to sell our home at full asking price--and SO quickly! Her marketing strategy was for our home was brilliant, the photos she took were exquisite, and her patience with me during this new process was really admirable. I asked many, many questions since I had not sold a home before and I was humbled by the amount of generous time she spent solely answering my lengthy list of questions. Thank you Jill. You are the BEST realtor. We are so grateful for you! read less
