6% of the purchase price but they at least need to have about $2500 (VA won’t allow the veteran to pay certain closing costs)
Lender fee, appraisal, attorney doc prep, prepaid (escrows & interest), title company fees, survey, credit report etc
Yes they are the same, different people just use different terminology
We reached out to Chapin title and asked what the typical Escrow charges would be on a 150 thousand dollar purchase. This was the response from them.
Our closing fee is $400 to Buyer and $400 to Seller;
Owner Title Policy is $1,152; Lender Title Policy $100;
Endorsements for Lender Title Policy, estimated $200;
State of Texas Policy Guaranty Fee $3 for Owner Title Policy and $3 for Lender Title Policy;
Recording fees for Warranty Deed with Vendor’s Lien @ $28, for Deed of Trust @ $100 and e-filing $8;
Tax Certificates are $10 each;
Attorney’s fee to prepare Warranty Deed with Vendor’s Lien @ $175.
Without a title search, that’s the best estimate I can makeThank you Chapin Title for your help in answering the question. The fees stated here can change without notice and are only an estimate. Title work is always needed, and if items are found that need to be cured to give clear title the charges could be more to take care of this.

This email is so long overdue to let you know what a fantastic agent Andrea is. Her listening to what we were looking for, knowledge of the areas we were searching and a dedication to make it all happen are beyond words.
After seeing quite a few houses, we found ours. After our home inspection and issues that were discovered, Andrea helped us to get the major ones fixed before closing (not a simple task). Then the need for her to stay on top of it all since time was slipping away toward our closing date and lender was wanting this or that to confirm repairs were done. Her ability to keep us calm was greatly appreciated and needed (thanks, Andrea).
I would recommend Andrea to anyone who is looking for a TRUE AND DEDICATED agent. She's the best and we consider her our friend! Toni Mayer

How many acres for Ag Exemption Grayson County TX
This is a question we get asked a lot. How many acres does it take to have the tax advantage in Grayson County Texas? The answer is at least 10 acres that are used for the purpose of Agriculture depending on what your plans are. So if you have only ten acres of ground and it is used for agricultural items and you build a home on it you will no longer have a full ten acres of ground you will only have 9 acres which will not qualify for AG. It is highly suggested to have at least 11 acres of ground to maintain the exemption.
As per Grayson County this is what is stated
The land must be a substantial tract of land. Substantial means an identifiable tract of land of adequate size to support a
typically, prudent agricultural operation. Effective January 1, 2005 the Agricultural Advisory Board of Grayson County
determined and approved by resolution that a fair and reasonable estimate of minimum use acreage for agricultural valuation must
be of adequate size to be economically feasible to farm or ranch and should be in the amount of at least 10.00 acres excluding
land used for purposes other than agricultural (example: home-site land). Additionally, it will be necessary to provide
substantial evidence of use, such as described below. If you own a substantial tract of land, sell part and retain less than 10.00
acres the above will also apply. If you purchased your property after January 1, 2005 and your tract is less than 10.00 acres, the
above will also apply. ****Please be aware that there is no provision to extend the agricultural appraisal to a tract less than
10 usable acres to a new owner (NO “grandfather clause”)
This is where as a Real Estate Broker/Agent we are here to help you find a parcel of ground that already has the Ag Exemption on it. There are several items that you can do to keep the exemption, which is highly desirable as it will lower your taxation a fair amount.
Here are a few items that will allow you to keep the Ag Exemption Please note that these are not all that are available and you must talk to Grayson County to get the exact way to keep the exemption and how to file for it.
There are rules and they must be followed.
Beef, Cow Calve Operation, Stock Feeder
Sheep/Goats Can provide two by-products, wool and meat
Horses Horse breeding, raising and being sold to the public qualify for
agricultural use. Horses stabled and/or used strictly for pets or recreational purposes do not qualify for agricultural use.
Beekeeping shall qualify for agricultural use productivity valuation if used for pollination for the production of
human food or other tangible products that have a commercial value.
These are just a few items that can help you maintain the Ag Exemption.
Again please contact Grayson County for the complete details on how to keep and maintain the exemption. 903-893-9673
