Frisco's Southeast Community Park, also known as Harold Bacchus Park (or the baseball park), has had the most recent round of expansion approved! While last years Master Plan has not yet been fully realized (where are our sand volleyball courts!), the current expansion will offer additional acreage, extend the Taychas Trail (hike & bike) to the West Rowlett Creek Trail , create new ball fields, additional parking, playgrounds, & pavilions. Equally important - the new expansion will directly tie the community of Lawler Park (a favorite of mine!) to the massive park to the north.
Additional plans and information can be found clicking here!
The Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau (Dallas CVB) created & published a wonderful video short on Youtube.com - just in case you missed it!
- Thanks to Dennis Alcorn with Highland Homes in Lawler Park for bringing this one to my attention!
While the weather may not yet cooperate, for those more adventurous souls (or at least more youthful!), 2014 offers a great deal of new & interesting adventures!

Anyone who reads my blog should know, we at the Christie Cannon Team love learning... as such we are huge fans of the Texas A&M Real Estate Center. They recently released an excellent video offering many of the coming & available technologies with regard to energy efficiency in home design. It is exciting to see the renewed interest in the importance of "passive" solar design.... I hope you learn & enjoy!
Good food, good music, good times.... all for a Great Cause!

I know, I sound like a broken record.... but if you are borrowing money, interest rate is king!
The below graph does an excellent job of illustrating the effective relationship between interest rate & purchasing power based on monthly payment.
Everyone knows it is coming.... but no one really agrees on exactly when or where they may end up...
Recent surveys on major retail real estate websites already cite rising interest rate fears as buyer number one concern (with low inventory closely behind). Below is compiled some of the major real estate institutions predictions for 4th quarter 2014.
An interesting point on these predictions is that the typically rosy prediction from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) is significantly higher than Fannie & Freddie, and more inline with the traditionally conservative Mortgage Bankers Association. Towards the tale end of last year, NAR actually predicted rates to be closer to 5.4%/5.5%.
While rates have remained at historically low prices - and yes we now scoff at our past excitement at refi-ing below 6.5%, - when it comes to a buyer's purchasing power, the relative effect of the interest rate is profound
