tx: Market Conditions for Dallas - Plano - 09/10/07 03:25 AM
 Calm before the Storm
 As I'm writing this it is raining cats and dogs, kinda the feeling of August Stats...
Overall the market is in a holding pattern because of the mortgage mess and media madness! Real estate is retail so if the consumer doesn't feel good, things slow down.  I preface this by saying it has been a little over a month and we all start to get antsy.  When the Feds lower interest rates on Sept. 18th (being optimistic here) - that should start a pre holiday round of activity. Overview of the market in August shakes out … (0 comments)

tx: Plano Market Update and Real Estate Advice - 08/27/07 05:44 AM
Monday is an office day so we look at the market to determine what is going on to help buyers and sellers in this market.

tx: Dallas Real Estate Market is Alive and Well! - 01/11/07 06:03 AM
A couple days ago in the Dallas Morning News on the front page of the business section is the title.
Dallas - FW housing sales fall 5%, big bold and only part of the picture, compared to the rest of the nation where in some areas 30-40% declines are looming. We should feel lucky we are in a normal, healthy, not an out of control market.

tx: An "Insiders Tour Guide" to the Dallas Metro Area - Day 1 - 11/24/06 05:02 AM
A few weeks ago Jerold's sister and brother-in-law visited us from Orlando, FL. They are also native Texans, (West Texas that is) and when they come to visit they like to explore the new areas of the metroplex and go to old haunts that bring back fond memories. The single most important mission everyday was to find the best REAL Tex Mex and Bar-B-Q in Dallas and to visit the new and most interesting venues within the past year.  So... of course, being REALTORS, we are always in the know of new and exciting projects in our cities. Needless to say; we … (0 comments)
