Christie Cannon on REAL TALK TEXAS radio show - Thank You

by Christie Cannon

A few months ago we had the pleasure of meeting & spending a morning with Steve Hakes on his KLIF Radio Show - REAL TALK TEXAS - Real Talk Real Experts.  

It is our understanding that Steve & his show is on a hiatus.  We, at the Christie Cannon Team, just wanted to say thank you, we hope all is well, & we look forward to hearing you on our radios soon!

National Association of REALTORS - Existing Home Sales

by Christie Cannon

The NAR released their November numbers for existing home sales... (keep in mind, these numbers reflect October's Sales Reports)

 

Looking for some good "Ipad reading"?   - The Texas A&M Real Estate Center - I've said it before.... when these guys speak on TX Real Estate, even the "experts" listen!  Great info for any one interested in TX growth, economy, & housing projections from nationally recognized gurus. 

Here is their 2014 Economic & House Forecast (presented on 10/16/2013) - be sure to check out page 25 to see the Projected Growth by County!

McKinney, TX - The Year’s Most Searched ZIP Codes on REALTOR.com

by Christie Cannon

Each year Realtor.com tracks the most searched zip codes in the nation... every year North TX commands a spot or two.  This year, Realtor.com's list of top 5 zip codes counts McKinney TX as number 2! 

Named by CNN's Money magazine in 2012 as a Best Place to Live in America (for the 3rd time), and the seat of government for Collin County... McKinney's popularity is no secret.  Lightly rolling terrain, mature trees, extensive green-spaces, parks, & the award winning Heard Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary certainly help make McKinney Unique by Nature.  

You can view the list full & article here. With all that McKinney has to offer, the city's recognition is very well deserved.

Interesting Frisco TX Growth Update!

by Christie Cannon

I remember when Frisco, TX was the place people went bird hunting.  It was a few small communities and a hodge-podge of ranches; one famous and a few infamous.....  When I moved here from Plano the population was around 28,000 - when the EDC was formed the population was about 6,000!

Everyone knows Frisco's growth has been record breaking, but is our potential fully realized?  

Having attended a development round-table earlier this week, I am delighted to share a few "Frisco Facts," of which I was reminded or only just learned:

  • Frisco ISD has remained the fastest growing in TX (and in the top of the nation) for 12 consecutive years
  • Frisco ISD has more Exemplary Rated Schools than any district in TX
  • Frisco ISD is about 68% built-out (between development, parks, etc)
  • The city of Frisco is approximately 50% built-out
  • 3 land owners retain the majority of the undeveloped land (over 60%)
  • Frisco boasts appox 1,400-acres of developed park land & 56 miles of hike & bike trails (& growing)
  • Frisco owns approx 750 undeveloped park lands
  • Stonebrook Parkway... will not be opening as quick as most believed - between crossing a Flood Plain & Rail Road, we are looking less at months & more towards years

Congratulations to both Frisco & McKinney!  Seems the rest of the nation is learning what we already know...
