Next week is July 4th - our nation's birthday!   Many of us celebrate cookout's, friends, family and baseball games - and of course fireworks!   We wanted to share some fun facts and local events.   However you choose to celebrate, we wish you a safe and relaxing holiday! 

  • The Declaration of Independence was signed on July 2, 1776; the date of celebration was later revised when the final version was adopted 2 days later, July 4, 1776.  However most historians have concluded that the Declaration was signed nearly a month after its adoption, on August 2, 1776. 
  • The Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 men representing the 13 colonies. 
  • Three U.S. Presidents actually died on July 4th.  John Adams & Thomas Jefferson actually died within hours of each in 1826.  James Monroe died in 1831.  Adams & Jefferson were the only signers of the Declaration who went on to be President. 
  • Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President was born on July 4, 1831
  • 31 places have “liberty” in their name; 4 of them are in Iowa.
  • 11 places have “independence” in their name.
  • 5 places have “freedom” in their name.   
  • 5 places are called “America”.
  • 1 place has “patriot” in its name.

We have all heard that the real estate market is improving, but it is always nice to see what the facts say about our own area. Are things really improving in Plano and Allen Texas?   The answer is YES!   The real estate market is consistent. Here in the Plano area we did not experience the deep valleys that many other parts of the country experienced, we have been experienced a steady market during 2011 and 2012.  
Here are the facts and figures for Plano for 2011 vs. 2012:
Plano
2011
2012
Homes Sold
2,722
3,161
Average Sold Price
$269,565
$271,329
Average Price Per Square Foot
$95
$96
Average Days on Market
93
64
 
As you see, more homes sold in 2012, and the average sold price increased.  The average days on market decreased by nearly a month! The average price per square foot is a good “apples to apples” comparison point, and strongly indicates the steady market we have discussed. 
 
As an additional point of reference let’s look at the same facts and figures for the Allen, Texas real estate market:
Allen
2011
2012
Homes Sold
1,128
1,299
Average Sold Price
$247,295
$247,438
Average Price Per Square Foot
$90
$91
Average Days on Market
84
66
 
While the number of homes sold in the Allen area is less than Plano on average the facts support the same conclusion, we are in a consistent market. 
If you would like to know how your neighborhood compares, contact us and we will provide you with the details.

The real estate market in Plano & Allen, Texas continues to sizzle.   

We like to consider the average days on market and average price per square foot as good measures of the overall market - these figures allow us to compare apples to apples so to speak. 

There were 267 homes sold in Plano in August, with an average of 54 days on the market and the average price per square foot was $101. 

In Allen there were 119 homes sold for the average price per square foot of $89 and homes were on the market an average of 61 days.  

As we wrap up what is commonly known as the busy summer season these statistics are encouraging. 

If you have been considering selling your home, give us a call and put our experience to work for you.

A recently released report tracks 6 different crime areas (murder, rape, burglary, robbery, aggravated assault and motor vehicle theft) to determine the safest cities in America. This report reveals good news for all of us. Crime in the US is down from last year. According to the FBI violent crimes are down 1.9% and property crimes are down 0.8%.  
Allen, Texas made the top 10 of the safest cities - #9 to be exact! Allen has been ranked number nine for the past two years. Its crime rate is 75.16% below the national average. 
Living in Allen is a great choice for many reasons; home values have remained very steady; price per square foot for homes is among the highest in our area; homes are selling a steady rate. If you are considering moving to Allen or upgrading your current home in Allen, call us – we can help!
