Crush Taco - Local Restaurant Review

Located in Frisco, Texas, Crush Taco features a variety of gourmet tacos, house frozen margaritas, local beers, and speciality sodas.

Besides BBQ, tacos in Texas are not to be taken lightly. Chef Mo crushes the competition with his inventive and delectable variety. My favorites are the cornflake crusted shrimp and fried chicken “elotes style” tacos. I love the sweet chili sauce with the shrimp and who doesn’t like some Mexican street corn with fried chicken? My other favorite is the falafel. Yes, it is vegetarian, but trust me….it’s worth it. I like his addition of shredded cabbage for a nice textural balance. Pop of flavor with a little crunch is all I need. If you have some room, I’d also recommend the chorizo fries. Tell your friends about Crush Taco and you will be the tac-o the town.

Storm & High Winds Take Down Frisco TX Silo!

by Christie Cannon

I have talked about the Frisco TX;s unique silos previously.  Unfortunately, in a storm today, one silo fell to the wind!  It appears that high winds took the silo off its foundation! 
Here is to hoping that Frisco is able to move forward on a project with the existing space that will continue to bring value to our great city!
Best of luck & prayers to any one affected by the storm.

Continued Drop in Distressed Home Sale Prices

by Christie Cannon

In the latest Existing Home Sale Report from the NAR (National Association of REALTORs), the NAR is reporting that less than 6% of the national market represents distressed sales.  This is a sharp decrease from 2014 reporting at 9%. At their most recent peak, distressed property sales represented a full 35% of all national real estate sales.  6% represents the lowest figure since 2008, when the NAR began tracking this metric. 

Existing Home Sales continue steady, with year-over-year sales up 3.9%.  Likewise, inventory remains low at approximately 4.8-months supply, versus a balanced market at 6-months.  The national median home price has seen an increase of 5.9% to $219,000.  It is important to consider, that the sharp increase in median price, at least for many markets, represents a regaining of previously lost sale prices.

Why Correct Pricing is Key

by Christie Cannon

How many times have you as a buyer, seller, home owner, or real estate pro witnessed a house that seemed to linger a little longer than the neighbors, then undergo a modest price drop and -boom- full price offer, or better yet (at least for the seller) multiple offers?  There is no better anecdote for the power of proper pricing than this classic scenario.

Proper pricing placement is critical to positioning a home in the market. Even a home slightly overpriced will often go "unnoticed" by buyers in the market, despite a seller's likely willingness to negotiate a less than full list-price contract. According to the National Association of REALTORs, pricing a home 10% over market value eliminates up to 70% of the "buyer pool" willing to look at the home.  As such, proper pricing or a well timed price reduction, can assist in positioning a home where the market is most likely to react.
