mckinney: Pool Homes in McKinney Texas - 01/14/14 04:19 PM
With spring just around the corner and the 2014 sales season getting started, many people are looking for homes in McKinney Texas with pools.
As McKinney ages a little we find more and more homes have had pools installed. The vast majority of pools are in-ground gunite although you do see vinyl lined pools from time-to-time.

Close out incentives range from $10,000 to $15,000 that can be used towards upgrades and/or closing costs.

mckinney: Culvers to Reopen in New McKinney TX Location - 02/17/12 06:36 AM

We were in McKinney this morning meeting with a past client. As we drove up US75, we suddenly had a hankering (it's a Texas thing) for a Culver's pot roast sandwich. As we exited, we noted the store was already closed. We are friends with Jim Kuntz, the owner, and we knew he was opening a new location on Eldorado Parkway so we drove over there to see if the new location was open.
The windows were still covered but we saw his car in the lot. I stuck my head in the front door hoping to say "hello" only … (0 comments)

mckinney: McKinney TX Homes For Lease - 12/06/11 11:33 PM

I'm a huge fan of McKinney, Texas. Nestled in the rolling hills just north of Dallas, this vibrant community has so much to offer--great schools, plentiful shopping, dining, golf, entertainment, and easy access to the Metroplex.
According to the McKinney TX Website:
Just 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, McKinney is a picturesque city with a small-town feel that is quite different from the Metroplex's urban sprawl. Our friendly charm, green spaces and comfortable pace belied the fact that McKinney, with a population of more than 133,500, is one of the fastest-growing cities in America.
The city also has a … (0 comments)

mckinney: Another McKinney TX Short Sale Closed - 04/19/11 08:39 AM
Another short sale closed! The sellers avoided foreclosure, the buyers purchased a nice home at a discount, and the lender did not have the losses involved with a foreclosure.

Many people feel that the nation's economy rises and falls with the housing market. While this is often true, we believe the current housing crisis is a direct result of the economic downturn and massive job loss across the nation.
In the Short Sale community, the vast majority of homeowners did not get a bad loan or buy more house than they could afford; they're just good, hardworking Americans who fell … (1 comments)
