HOME BUYING SEASON 2020

Did you know that a recent Realtor.com study showed that January and February are the new start to the home buying season? Watch this short video to unpack the data.


TWO THINGS HOME BUYERS ARE NOT GIVING UP

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) recently published an article that revealed that home buyers demand is highest for these two home features:

 

  1. Garages
  2. Patios

 

Surprised? Hardly. In today's local market, we see homes with elaborate outdoor living spaces demanding a hefty penny and appraising for it, and homes with converted garages and no enclosed parking suffer extra days on market (Texas hailstorms anyone? No thank you!). So, if you're thinking of making some home remodeling decisions, let this be your guide in where to invest your funds.

 

Our Metroplex' homes have fared well. The average DFW home seller made over $78,000 in profit in 2019, according to ATTOM Data Solutions charted findings. 


THE GROVE FRISCO STARTS ON 2ND PHASE DEVELOPMENT

The Grove Frisco is a 735-acre masterplanned community located at the four corners of Frisco, McKinney, Plano and Allen. Designed with a modern take on the familiar idea of a village, it is complete with amenities the whole family can enjoy. As the Frisco real estate market recovers, The Grove Frisco hit its sales goals for 2019, spurring the development of its second phase.
