Builders think they’ve found sweet spot
RAISING ROOFS: Luxury home builders have found success in a sagging housing market by building in the upscale Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas and the city of Prosper.   In a North Texas housing market where starts are off a third from last year’s pace, mortgage lenders are cutting staff, Realtors are competing aggressively for a contracting number of sales and the number of foreclosures is the only thing on the rise, the first sign of hope — be it however modest — has emerged.
Houses in the $250,000 to $300,000 price range … (0 comments)

Big new high school in Prosper builds small-town pride Coleman Street heads north out of tiny Prosper past porches and hayfields until it passes a column-studded brick edifice that seems to span the horizon.
Welcome to the modern American high school, Texas style. Prosper High School is a $113.5 million, 590,000-square-foot behemoth, complete with a medical tech lab, a restaurant-worthy kitchen, a greenhouse, a broadcast studio and, of course, an indoor football practice facility. All this in a still-sleepy town of just 7,000 people.

prosper acreage: WHAT'S YOUR HOME WORTH ?? - 10/06/09 07:25 PM
What's your home worth?
When putting your home on the market, there are two ways to go about estimating what your property is worth. The first is a professional appraisal, and the second is a comparative market analysis (CMA). If you are thinking about listing your home, talk to your Texas REALTOR® about hiring a professional appraiser, conducting a CMA, or doing both.
A professional property appraisal is done by a certified appraiser and estimates your home's value based on a variety of things, including square footage, design and floor plan, the neighborhood, schools, landscaping, any additions or updates, and more. … (1 comments)

Entice buyers with extras
If you're putting your home on the market, or if it has been on the market for a while without solid offers, you may consider including some appliances, furniture, or other extras in the asking price. This could help you attract buyers.
Nobody is suggesting that you part with valuable antiques or sentimental items, but you probably aren't that attached to your washing machine. Maybe you're moving to a home that won't be able to accommodate your outdoor furniture-if that's the case, you could offer your existing patio table and chair setup to your potential buyers. It … (0 comments)

Any time is a good time
"Now's not the best time ... can we set something up for later?"-these are words that a buyer and his agent do not want to hear when they're out looking for a property.
As a home seller, you retain the right to require appointments and to show the house on your schedule. It's a good idea, though, to either always be ready or not make such restrictions on the home's accessibility. If your home is not readily available to show, you're decreasing the number of potential buyers that see it, and the chances of that home … (65 comments)

Finding the right neighborhood    
Picking a neighborhood that fits your lifestyle and desires is an important part of the homebuying process. It can be challenging, though ... there are so many things to consider.
For a lot of people, quality schools top the list of desirable neighborhood amenities. It may surprise you that being in an area with good schools is important even for people without children because good schools mean a higher resale value.
