Tradition Homes Model Home at Light Farms Celina

Tradition Homes is open in the D/FW market! When Bill Darling says, "the Tradition continues..." I for one believe him. Bill Darling, the former CEO and co-founder of Darling Homes, is perhaps one of the most well-known and respected residential home builders over the past 30+ years in North Texas. Unlike most start-ups, Tradition Homes could not be better represented, and I expect Bill Darling will reinstate the same company culture of trust that employees and contractors embraced resulting in some of the area's best built new homes when he was at the helm of Darling Homes. My observation knowing Bill Darling over the course of my Real Estate career, and this opinion is shared by many, is he makes "doing what's right" look easy, and believe me,

100 Years Ago, the Nation Went Dry...

Nearly 100 years ago, commencing on January 17, 1920, the 18th Amendment to the Federal Constitution became law and prohibited all alcohol sales and consumption in the United States, minus a few strict exceptions. That act single-handedly ushered in the most significant gangster era in American history, purportedly surpassed only recently by today's House Democrats.

And so this is a friendly reminder to celebrate the New Year safely by designating a driver or taking an Uber or Cab or better still staying put at your New Year's Eve destination. A hangover is one problem; the cost of a DWI will make you wish Prohibition was still here...

 Beware of Cyber Crimes When Wiring Real Estate Deposits

In a world where money changes hands digitally and globally at the speed of light, scammers in increasing numbers are looking for any vulnerabilities to exploit, including spoofing phone numbers of real estate agents. The bottom line, you should never transmit or wire funds to anyone unless you are 100% sure you have that financial institution's correct routing information and have called to verify with the party requesting the wire using a known phone number.

We all want to pay our fair share of taxes, but tax appraisal districts are increasingly forcing a sizeable percentage of Dallas Fort Worth area homeowners to pay inflated tax bills based upon an assessed "tax value price" that exceeds real market values, which as it turns out is a violation of the tax statute. Yeah, ouch!

Today, the nuisance of overvalued Texas tax assessments has become an endemic problem. It is not unusual for Metroplex homeowners to see an assessed tax value in their 2019 Tax Notices, that are $50K or more over actual real market values. Many homeowners may not realize they were paying more taxes than they owed until they sell their home for less than their tax assessed value.

How can this problem be fixed? Well, outside of

November new home sales beat expectations from CNBC.

This morning Rick Santelli reported a surprise ~17% uptick in new home sales for last November. It is my opinion that the December sales report may be even better. As real mortgage interest rates decline, and as the Federal Reserve signals it will remain neutral with future rate increases, home sales are responding positively.

Benzinga is reporting that an industry analyst is turning more bullish for builder stocks in 2019, suggesting a modest correction to the upside for home builders. 

If you put off buying, you might want to reconsider. Banks are competing for your mortgage business and that has driven rates down from their 5% peak last year. New home prices, although still

The Great Texas Property Tax Grab Must END in 2019

Whether he knows it or not, by the time Governor Abbott leaves office, he will most likely have presided over the largest property tax increase in Texas history, unless sweeping assessment adjustments soon occur, especially in and around Texas' largest metropolitan areas. 

While Abbott generally offers support for President Trump's Federal tax reduction efforts, home ownership has become increasingly less affordable in part due to the widespread practices of Texas Central Appraisal Districts over inflating real property values, causing property tax bills to soar. And if that weren't bad enough, Federal property tax deductions under the new Federal Tax Laws are now capped at $10,000, adding insult to injury. 

As we head towards yet another
