This home is not currently on the market for sale. We wont able to tell whether its vacant or not. Plus it will be a safety concern to post that online.

What is that you like to know about this home?

Dallas Texas answered:
It all depends on what area of the DFW are you speaking about. Some communities YES with increased values, others areas of Dallas Fort Worth there has been a dip in home sales values OR have zero increase in values.

Specific area(s) would be to your advantage obtain the correct answer(s). However when a person does own their home you receive annual tax benefits.

It is a seller's market in Plano right now. There is not enough inventory for all the buyers that are active right now. It is up to you whether you want to sell now or not. Prices in Plano are up over last year. The pricing of your home would depend on its location and condition and comps around it. I could run comps for you if you like, and go see the home. I could give you a better answer after that. Thanks. ... more

Keith & Kinsey Schulz answered:
Some people argue that they can get a better deal without a buyers agent, because only one agent has to be paid. That is the only argument I can think of for not using a buyers agent. Although, in most cases this isn't realistic. The amount of commission paid to the listing agent is based on the contract between the seller and the listing agent (not the contract between the buyer and seller). In most cases, if there is no buyers agent, the listing agent just earns twice as much. Also, most knowledgeable agents are able to negotiate a better deal than a buyer could on their own. So, I would debate that the buyer comes out ahead (and with much less work and fear of doing something wrong) using a buyers agent. See my blog link below for more info. ... more

I don't show any residential lots.

There are a couple of commercial lots and you can see them here:,11452210%20/areas/46921/subdivision/Mendenhall/propertytype/SINGLE,CONDO,MULTI,LAND,FARM,COM,VAC,RENTAL/listingtype/Resale%20New,Foreclosure%20Bank%20Owned,Short%20Sale/

Looks like they want $200,000/acre.

That could be a hot area due to proximity with the rail line, so prices likely will be somewhat higher than in other areas.

It's going to depend on a number of factors: size, updates, pool/no pool etc. There's no 'one size fits all.' Best bet is to have a Realtor represent you - that way you'll have access to all the data you need to make an informed offer. Let me know if I can be of further help.

Good luck!

Patrick Jackson answered:
Hi Glen,

It depends on the value of the property and the condition of the pool. For properties below $150,000, there is little value added. Perhaps $5,000. Above $200,000, add $15,000 - $20,000 for pools in good condition. Above $300,000 add $20,000-$25,000. After that it depend on other amenties like water features, outdoor kitchens and covered patios as much as it does the pool but rarely does the value of a pool go over $30,000. If you bought the pool, enjoy it, but don't expect to get the $60,000 back that you paid for it.

The market is relatively healthy as long as a home is priced properly and prepared properly (staging). We sell houses year round, so although the market is busier in the summer, we can still houses year round.

Shawn Perkins answered:
Hi Sandy! I'm soo excited for you, as Avignon Windhaven is an exceptional community of Plano, and the houses are absolutely dreamy! Lots of new development has occurred around the 121/Tollway area in recent years which has served to positively impact property values in the area. Of course, because Avignon is a relatively new development, there has not been a significant amount of "turnover" (homes that have sold) which provides the data needed to determine property value in an area. However, in examination of the activity that has occurred I determined:
1.There has been a total of 8 eight homes that have either sold, or are currently being marketed for sale in the area. Homes in the area have sold in the last sixth months between a range of $479K and $735K. 2. Specifically, there are currently 4 homes on the market; the least expensive being marketed at $649,990, and the asking price of the most expensive is $989K. These ranges should give you a general idea as to the overall price range of homes in the area, but in no way reflect the price at which you would be able to ultimately secure a property, as each home is custom. Because the product in Avignon is distinct, and unique, an individual appraisal is required to determine the ultimate value. Give me a call. I would love to give you a tour of Avignon property in addition to some of the other upscale neighborhoods of Plano. I can be reached at 972-783-1919 or

This time of year it may be deceiving because buyers and sellers are not wanting to do things over the holiday season, but the facts support your intuition.

In 2008 there were 532 REO or foreclosure properties in Frisco listed. In the first half of 2009 there were 202 such properties and in the second half only 158. ... more

Ron Perry answered:
Yes! Even with our national ecomonic conditions the trend is definitely up and is expected to continue--be glad you live in Texas! However, the good news is like a double edged sword. More demand will promote less buyer negotiating power. But the larger impact will come from an increase in interest rates. Anyone who is able to take advantage of the current home market would be very wise to do so. ... more

Hi Nancy,
Since we've actually met, I delayed answering to let some other opinions come forward. However, as I suspected, I am, at times, a lone wolf out here in Prosper on - which does not disappoint me in the least. I know that is changing, and as more agents discover, you'll see the answers picking up.

If 2009 has been any indication, our trajectory is only upwards. We are currently experiencing balanced market conditions in the resale sector, our builder inventory is at it's lowest point in two years, new build jobs are underway, new commercial growth is happening and in the planning stages all over town, our residential lease market is in so much demand that we're in multiple offer situations in many cases, and our schools have a fantastic reputation and the scores to deserve it. The 4th and 1st quarters of any year are typically strong in the North Dallas suburbs - primarily because of the major corporations of our area. The end of one fiscal budget and the beginning of a new one means funds are released and corporate relocations happen. We've seen a steady improvement in our housing market all of 2009, and it's a quantum leap improvement from where we were just one year ago.

With the luxury market, we see a strong desire by the buyer pool to build a home. There is plenty of land and a myriad of excellent home builders from which to choose. They come in with lots of ideas on how they want their home to be, and they have the funds to make it happen. Resale homes in the luxury markets really have to step up to a higher level of exposure for the home listing, and also have or add unique elements to the home to make it stand out in the minds of the buyers. A luxury home that looks like a production home is not going to be popular.

If I were to say anything were new about the housing market in Prosper in 2009, this has been the year that Prosper, Texas first discovered I've tried to be a big part of that effort through my blog on since Fall, 2008. This will continue to bring us new attention in 2010, and I will keep up my efforts to attract buyers to our area.

Have a blessed day.

Hello Alex,
Thank you for your question regarding Castlemere. This is a very nice neighborhood and not quite as expensive as Windhaven. Presently there are 6 active listings and 10 homes have sold with one pending to close. So by this activity alone I would say it is a popular choice. If you would like to see any of these homes or ask me more questions personally about this or any other area in Plano, I will be happy to assist you. Just call me at 214-676-8040 or email me at and I will be happy to assist you. Thank you for allowing the realtor community to assist you.
