Okay, so you have found your dream home.  The sellers have accepted your offer.  If you are like most people, this will be one of the single most important and expensive purchases you will ever make.  So, you need to ensure that your greatest asset is completely protected.  Let's discuss how to do just that.

Free Ice Skating Frisco

Let's face it, ice skating has not traditionally been a mainstream sport in North Texas. Other than the occasional temporary rinks during the winter holidays or the Winter Olympics every four years, most of us don't think of ice skating when we think of recreation. Perhaps it is because we tried it--once--without any instruction and decided there were no "triple salchows" or "hat tricks" in our future. If you were like me on my one-and-only outing, I had looked like Bambi floundering around on the ice. It was not a pretty picture, and my ego was not the only thing bruised.

However, the Dallas Stars have a program that is designed to improve my ice skating self-esteem. They are offering a Free Program that allows you and me to Try Skating for Free.

According to JESSE J. HOLLAND of the Associated Press,  It is true that "we do grow everything bigger in Texas," even the cities.

New data from the Census Bureau shows that Frisco, Texas was the second fastest growing city in the nation beween 2012 and 2013.  San Marcos, Texas was number one and Cedar Park, Texas was number 4.   Perhaps Governor Perry's "Wide Open For Business" campaign, is really making an impact...  Or perhaps, folks are simply intrigued by all this great town has to offer.

Answers to Your Questions Regarding Appraisals

As a listing agent, one of my primary obligations to a seller is to do everything within my ability to assist them in getting the proper value for their home.  Unfortunately, there are times when appraisers may not know a particular market well.  While this is not the norm, it does happen.  We make it a habit to communicate with the appraiser and to provide them data with respect to the comparable sales we used in pricing the home.  We will also ask the seller for a list of all upgrades, etc to evidence the details regarding the home.  When possible, we will deliver this information to the appraiser in person to establish a good report with him or her.  Below are a few frequently asked questions regarding
