Homes with Wine Grottos in Mckinney, Frisco, Allen

If there is one feature that is hot in this market right now other than the outdoor entertaining center, it’s the wine grotto.  It seems the term “wine grotto” just goes hand-in-hand with the luxury homes of Collin county.  Not only that, but it’s expected.  Whether it’s for entertaining purposes, to hold your wine collection, or simply for the decoration purposes or having a romantic spot to crack open your favorite bottle of red, the wine cellar is definitely a coveted feature.  Wine cellars can be a tough feature to find when going at the search solo-make sure you call in a trusted advisor-an experienced Realtor-to aid you in your search.

Frisco Home Sales Still Going Strong | A Comparison to 2012

The weather may be starting to cool off but one thing’s for certain, the market for homes in Frisco is still HOT! HOT! HOT!  The home market typically slows a bit after school starts in the suburban areas but recent trends suggest otherwise in areas like Frisco in which the median $300,000 home is selling in an average of 21 days.

Just looking at the stats in home prices vs date on the market or “DOM” over the past two years in the $200-300k price-range: 

WOW!  The same average home in 2012 was taking 80 days to sell, whereas now, in 2014 (or at least in August, this priced home “upon average” is staying on the market for 20 days). 

Now, this can be great news….and it can also be scary news if you haven’t bought / sold a home in a while and are wondering how to pace things and when to list your home to be able to move into your new one.  The whole process can seem like a very delicate web…(and it can be) but thankfully, we as Realtors know how to gauge the time-frame and numbers so that they work in your favor and no one ends up homeless :)  By looking at trends, knowing how long homes in your neighborhood are staying on the market and how long homes in the area that you are wanting to move into are staying on the market, we can make recommendations upon when you should list to be able to move.  It’s really not as daunting as it may seem….however, not being in the hands of a professional who is used to juggling several of these at one time, it could have dire consequences.

The good news is…you now have a bit more to choose from than May 2014’s narrow selection of homes.  (Keep in mind also if searching for homes for sale in Frisco ISD to not “only” look under the city of Frisco to search but “Frisco ISD” as there are many homes that fall within the city limits of Mckinney, Allen and Little Elm but are zoned for Frisco ISD.

The Best Time of the Year to Buy a Fixer-Upper in DFW

DFW Fixer-Upper Homes

Home for Sale in Plano ISD

FixerUpper

Anyone see potential in this lovely lot?  Much work has already been done but this would make a great owner-occupied investment.

If you’ve been considering buying investment property to flip in DFW or perhaps even a fixer-upper to owner-occupy and “make your own”, the time to buy is NOW.  Below are a few reasons why: 

1.  In the early fall, the families with children in school have likely already moved into “their” new homes, so you have less competition in the market-place (which ALWAYS helps in a hot sellers market so that you are not constantly battling multiple offers).

2.  More choices.  Inventory was SUPER low this past May and July in the DFW metroplex and there were many, many more buyers out there than there were homes on the market.  Winding down into the fall months, you have a few more choices as not “as many” buyers are looking for homes.

3.  Sellers who are listing In the cooler months are serious about selling.  With such a hot sellers market this past summer, there were quite a few sellers listing at the very top of the market who may have not been “as serious” about truly selling and just wanted to “see what they could get”.

4.  Sellers who list now generally would like to be in their “next” home before the holidays and not have to be interrupted with home-showings during festivities or family-gatherings.  This could mean more leverage for the buyer ;-)

5.  If a home has been listed in the summer, and for some odd reason, is “still” on the market, at this point, most sellers have came to reality and have reduced their home to a price that will meet market-demand to actually sell.

If you’re looking for fixer-uppers in the DFW area and would like to begin flipping properties for profit and taCx-deduction, feel free to contact me; I can guide you through the process and help you with your budgeting so that you make the best profit possible (there are formulas you will need to make sure you profit) and introduce you to contractors who can help you meet those needs.
