Dallas Update for all you Texans

Is the Housing Market in North Dallas Hot or What? Check out Prestwyck in McKinney!
Posted on September 29, 2015 by Your Connection to the North Dallas Real Estate Market

As Real Estate agents in the North Dallas area we are asked daily, “How’s the market?”  This morning I woke up to an incredible news story on NBCDFW.  In McKinney, Texas, about 30 miles north of Dallas, approximately a dozen families camped out over night to be the first families to purchase lots where they hope to build their future homes in a community named Prestwyck.  This is truthfully an unknown phenomena in North Dallas.  The developer expects the lots to sell out in 24 hours.

We moved to Texas, January 1, 2006.  We can not remember a time where the housing market was this hot.  We left the crazy Southern California housing market at the end of 2005  in search of  a better education for our kids (at the time ages 3 and 7), more affordable housing, more integrated communities and a well-educated workforce.

2015 totals show North Texas real estate market is near an all-time high
Recession? What recession?

As 2015 winds down, real estate activity in North Texas is near an all-time high.

Looking at the latest statistics, there’s almost no sign that the Great Recession ever happened.

You couldn’t say that five years ago when the market was coming out of the economic crash.

While Dallas-Fort Worth fared much better than most U.S. urban markets, the housing crash and financial sector shakedown were certainly felt in these parts.

That’s easy to forget in these halcyon days of Toyota, soaring job gains and rocketing real estate values.

Remember back in 2009, when local home foreclosures were jumping and commercial property projects were getting put on hold? Those days are long past.

The 2015 snapshot of D-FW’s real estate market takes things to a new level.

Chinese invest billions in Dallas-area real estate

evelopers who are redoing downtown Dallas’ landmark Statler Hotel have spent time in China courting investors.

“I’ve already made three trips to China,” said Frank Zaccanelli, a partner with Centurion American Development Group. “They are very interested in what’s going on in Dallas.”

Centurion American, which also has suburban home and commercial projects in the works in North Texas, isn’t the only local real estate firm with an appetite for Chinese investment.

Chinese money has funded recent downtown Dallas tower sales.

Simple, Organizational Tips For Cleaning Your Home

Cleaning your home can occasionally seem like a full-time job. When you finally complete the last room, it seems like it’s time to begin again. If you want to end this stressful cycle, it is essential to have an organized strategy.

Begin with a system. The most efficient system seems to be one that breaks down all the cleaning tasks over a period of a week. With this system, you can appoint various jobs to different days and spend less time cleaning your house and more time unwinding in it.

To use this system, you have to break down your cleaning jobs into three classifications, light cleaning, everyday cleaning and deep cleaning.

Light cleaning jobs include dusting, Windexing the windows , sweeping, vacuuming and laundry. These jobs can be done just once each week and completed on various days of the week. Always arrange the dusting initially so that any dirt that is knocked to the floor will be swept up later.

Daily cleaning tasks are the tasks that have to be frequently done when you are cleaning your house. These tasks include cleaning up; doing the dishes and wiping down counters and other exceptionally made use of surface areas. By spending at least fifteen minutes daily tackling these tasks, you will certainly keep them from piling up.

Deep cleaning tasks such as cleaning the restroom, mopping and wiping down the walls and devices. Many people like to arrange these tasks for the weekend when they have more time to commit to cleaning. This is time well spent and can give you a clean house throughout the week.

After your system remains in place, utilize the list to appoint chores to all of the members of the family. If each person takes on simply one or two tasks then cleaning your whole home can take no time at all.

Great listing photos of your home for sale are a requirement not a bonus.

Camera gear doesn’t guarantee good listing photos. Planning does.

professional photographer for real estate listing photo

There is this urban legend that if a real estate agent buys the right camera, all they have to do is point it at something and press a button, and the end result will be a professional-quality photograph.

I almost always want a better camera, a shiny new lens and maybe a nicer lightweight tripod. It’s easy to spend an entire commission check for selling a small condo — and more — on basic photography equipment.

excerpt from Teresa Boardmansarticle on Inman


If you are going to list your home for sale you will need to do everything to make sure your home is presented to potential buyers in the best way possible. Buyers will see you home photos online before making the choice to see it in person. Tech nology is a great thing but buying the TECH TOOLS is not a simple fix: you have to know how to use them.

If you Real Estate Agent takes pictures and you don’t like them ask for new photos to be taken or ask for them to hire a professional photographer in you area.

The Home Search Process. How buyers find homes.

The Home Search Process 2004 – Internet is more important for Realtors now than it ever has been.
Looking at the interactive graph here, there is an obvious increase of people who started their home search online. Indeed, the share of people using the Internet has increased by 28% since 2004. In 2013, 48% of first-time home buyers and 40% of repeat home buyers used the Internet in their home search process.homebuyer graphReal estate agents are mostly preferred by first-time homebuyers for their initial housing search. Especially last year, there was an increase of the first-time home buyers who asked for the services of a real estate agent. This trend shows how increasingly important is the role of real estate agents when there is limited inventory on the market.
