The City of Argyle is growing, and the homes in the first planned multi-use development of Waterbrook are building out. The 290 single family homes currently under construction will be buffered on the north side along FM 407 and on the west side against Highway 114 by retail and office space. Waterbrook home sites include 40 foot wide patio home lots as well as more typical 50 foot and oversized 65 foot wide properties.

If you're like most people, you may be wondering if home prices are going to drop due to the recent cooldown in the housing market, here's what you need to know.  Not only are experts forecasting that home prices will continue to appreciate nationwide this year, a surprising number have actually increased their projections from the original 2022 forecasts - shown in green below. The chart shows, most sources adjusted up, calling for higher appreciation in 2022 than originally projected. But why are the experts so confident the housing market will see ongoing appreciation? Supply vs. Demand As Bankrate says:"After all, the supply of homes for sale remains near record lows. And while a jump in mortgage rates has dampened somewhat, demand still outpaces supply."  Knowing that experts are f...

Pools cost $70,000 or more to dig into the ground.  It's very expensive to do.  It's a lot easier to buy a home with an existing pool and remodel it to your liking.  I've done this personally and it's something that folks do to save funds and still have the pool of their dreamsThere are lots of pools for sale in the DFW area. Each of them come with a house as a bonus! Follow this link to find out which pool would fit you best?

Sping has sprung here in the Metroplex, and despite uncertainty like conflict overseas, inflation at home, and rising interest rates, the robust housing market chugs along.So what can you expect Spring 2022?1. Rising interest rates.Experts project mortgage rates to continue to climb through spring and the rest of the year.  In fact they're already a full point higher than just six months ago. These higher rates affect both move-up and first-time buyers as they face higher home prices in addition to a higher cost over the life of a loan. 2. Increasing Availability of Homes??The National Association of Realtors reports the supply of available homes has increased for the first time in eight months.  We're not seeing a noticeable increase in inventory through Southlake, Keller, Roanoke, Arg...

Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using FHA 203k Mortgage Loans in Little Elm Texas. Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- a department within HUD). Existing home owners or potential home buyers can remodel and update their homes without having a higher cost second lien because of this FHA loan program.  "Luxury items" like a hot tub and a swimming pool are not allowed by this FHA loan program. Repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, add wallpaper, replace appliances and flooring and even a add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of the homes square footage).  One of the biggest advantages to this government loan program is you have all of your acquisi...

Thinking about buying a home in 2022. If so you're probably asking yourself is now a good time.  Will a home lose value in 2022?  Or will home appreciation continue in 2022 and beyond in the Tarrant and Denton County Texas market?       There are still more home buyers than home sellers heading into the new year, and even with more inventory coming on the market that doesn't appear likely to change.  The law of supply and demand doesn't change.  So experts projects home prices will continue climbing in 2022, just at a more reasonable pace.  No major industry expert expects home depreciation in 2022.  In fact, their estimates average out to a 5.1 percent increase across the U.S.  So what does that mean for us here in North Texas? While we likely won't see the 22% year over year increase...
