Texas Association Of Realtors Winter Meeting


I spent the last 5 days in Austin learning how to better serve my clients.  The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) is making sweeping changes for all agents.  They want to make sure the consumer is informed and know who the parties involved in a transaction are and who is representing them.  



Lewisville Chamber of Commerce Awards Ceremony


Just had a wonderful lunch with the Lewisville Chamber of Commerce.  Shook hands with Senator Jane Nelson, Texas House Representative Ron Simmons, Denton County Commissioner Bobbie Mitchell, LISD Board members and many area business owners.  Who said Real Estate was not political!!!  Let me tell you what REALTORS do for you.  This last legislative year we  helped pass the Homestead Exemption increase. There was such an overwhelming voter turn out for this one item that Appraisal reform will be a big topic in 2017.  We voted for a Constitutional Amendment that will never allow a Real Estate transfer fee to be assessed on any RE transaction.  I have been selling Real Estate for 12 years and they have been trying to pass this fee/tax the whole time.  I am particularly happy this one will never come up again. Make it a great day!! 

Pre-Owned housing shortage pushed buyers to New Construction


I spent 3 days last week visiting all the new construction around Lewisville/Flower Mound.  Since we have a housing shortage of pre-owned homes I felt it necessary to sharpen my skills in other areas.  There are several sub-divisions that are almost built out already.  For instance, Highpoint Oaks on the Lewisville/Coppell border.  The builders are M/I and Artisan.  They build a beautiful property from $300,000 and up.  Also, down in the southern Lewisville are is Hills of Vista Ridge.  The builder in there is Pulte.  Their price range is $305,000 and up.  In the heart of Lewisville off of Main street is Crescent Estates.  The builder is Megatel.  They offer a price range of $309,000 and up.  Across Summit is a new community that is Fireside Village.  Their price range start at $250,000 and up.  This community will be an age restricted community.  This means at least one person in the household has to be 55.  From my conversation with their rep they have 33 lots and 200+ people on the waiting list.  What does this tell me!!  People in the 55+ catagory are wanting to downsize and the price range starting at $250,000 is right where they would like to be.  There are 2 other 55+ communities going in Flower Mound.  One is The Legends and it is off of Dixon behind Target.  This gated community starts at $395,000.  They currently have 8 spec homes ready for move in.  The other 55+ community is at 3040 and Old Orchard.  They have just started building.  Their price ranges will be similar to The Legend community.  So as you can see I learned a ton about New Construction in our area and we have a need for 55+ communities in the $250,000 range.
