You Didn't Know You Had a Foreclosure in Your Past? Really?
I have very patient sellers.  Their Addison, Texas condo is for sale and a buyer with a pre-approval letter made an offer.  After some negotiations through her agent, the details were firmed up, we went under contract, got through inspections and had an appraisal.  Smooth sailing towards closing, right? Wrong!
Although the pre-approving loan officer ran a credit check, she did not search public records.  With six years of great rental history and an ok credit score, the buyer looked good on paper. But the underwriter dug deeper .... and … (7 comments)

Dream BIG in Addison, Texas.
As a member of Addison's newly formed Bond Evaluation Committee, the 42 other members and I were tasked last night by the Mayor to dream BIG. The committee was formed to consider issues that might require the issuance of bonds by the Town to fund capital projects that can't be supported by current annual revenues.
We got a crash course in financing the future through municipal bonds and learned that Addison's fiscal year tax rate for 2012 is just $0.1981. Addison's policy is the rapid retirement of debt (within 15 years) except when capital improvements will … (2 comments)

Love Note From an Addison Police Officer.
One of the many things I love about Addison, Texas is the caring Town employees. Yesterday morning, while I worked from my home office at the front of the house, I watched as an Addison police officer left his car and walked up my neighbor's driveway.  He placed a slip of paper under the windshield wiper blade.  Then, instead of returning to the patrol car, oh no! He walked across the lawn to my driveway and into my garage where my car was parked!
I popped up out of my chair and went out … (4 comments)

Ah, Addison! Not a city, but a "town." The Town of Addison. The best place to live and work in North Texas. There's something to be said about a place that doesn't take itself too seriously. Note the exclamation point in the town's name. Here you'll find the ruminations, rants and raves of one of the town's realtors and residents.
