31% of Closings in Exurb Counties
Forget Dallas, Tarrant, Collin and Denton Counties. The move is on to the exurbs. This month, November 2021, 31% of all RMDFW home closings were NOT in the main four metro counties. The closings were in Kaufman, Rockwall, Ellis, Grayson, Hood and Johnson counties – the new exurb counties of the Metroplex. Affordable, new housing is sprouting up 25, 35, 45 miles away from Dallas – and young millennial families are snatching them up. One year ago, 15% of all November RMDFW closings were new homes sales. This November it is about 42% - a huge increase. Since there is a lack of inventory for new homebuyers, they are moving further out to the exurbs. Kaufman County (Heartland, Forney, Crandall) leads the way, then Rockwall County (Royce City, Fate), then Grayson (Van Alstyne, Melissa).

Looking for a fun and exciting way to explore a part of Texas history right here in Fort Worth? Our real estate agents have introduced plenty of new homeowners to the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District.
When looking at Fort Worth homes for sale, you want to see everything the community has to offer. The rich and exciting story of Texas comes alive when you visit the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District!
The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District sits just north of the central business district in Fort Worth. A section of 98 acres that encompasses most of the Stockyards has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1976, an honor reflecting its unique place as a livestock center renowned throughout the Lone Star State.
The history of the Stockyards begins with the arrival of railroads in 1876. The Fort Worth Union Stockyards were opened by 1890, covering an expansive area of more than 200 acres. Fort Worth also became home to its very own meat processing plant in February of that year. In its heyday, there were four distinct stockyards.
Before long, what is now the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District sold more than 1 million head of cattle per year.
Today, the Historic District designation applies to 46 buildings and one other structure, as well as noted Texas Historic Landmarks, including the entrance sign, the Livestock Exchange Building, and the site of the Stockyards Hotel. Entertainment and shopping venues capitalize on Fort Worth's indelible reputation as "Cowtown."
Making the Most of Your Trip to the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District
There's plenty to see and do in the Fort Worth Stockyards, so you'll want to know a bit about it before you go.

Gardeners are so lucky in the Dallas area. With a little bit of effort, you can grow vegetable crops almost all year long in our warm, sunny climate. That long growing season is also great for producing abundant flowers that nourish butterflies in spring, summer and fall.
In the meantime, here are some things to know about gardening in North Texas, and some recommendations for spring and summer planting.
Weather in North Texas tends to be changeable, and that's truer than ever in these warmer times. During our recent spring, we've seen 95-degree days, followed by a norther that sent the mercury plummeting down to the 30s. Those sudden changes can be tough on gardens, so research plants carefully before you buy. The Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service in Dallas should be your go-to source for sustaining your garden through inclement weather.
Garden experts abound in North Texas and can advise you on protecting plants from sudden frosts or too much summer sun. For instance, situating plants sensitive to frost by a sunny wall in a warm microclimate can help, as can erecting a vine-covered trellis to shade plants prone to withering from harsh afternoon sun.
Also, watch out for exposed locations where fierce spring winds may wreak havoc, drying out or breaking your tender vegetables or flowers. Planting or erecting windbreaks can help.
It's warm here most of the year, and in summer, it's downright hot. Warm climates usually have an abundance of garden pests and diseases that plague gardens, so be prepared. While some gardeners may adopt a regimen of spraying with chemicals, organic gardening experts support more earth-friendly methods such as using organic fertilizer, compost, and mulch; using organic applications to control garden pests and diseases; and planting plants adapted for our climate.
One of the best garden designs for our area is the raised bed. Raised beds keep plant roots from bogging down in our clayey soils during wet spells. A 4-foot by 6-foot frame (these are available commercially) can get you started.
Double dig your planting spot to get rid of any rocks or roots. Place the frame, making sure it's level and bracing it to keep sides from bowing. Fill it with layers of garden soil and compost, then plant plants, seeds, or seedlings. Cover with mulch. Add extra beds if you have room.
When choosing plant material, you'd do well to study Texas A&M's recommendations for EarthKind landscaping. The recommended plants stand up to the heat and drought of North Texas, having lower water needs than many other plants.
We can help you find a dream home in Dallas where you can make your garden grow. Contact us today.
The wide-open spaces of Texas are too tempting not to explore on four wheels.

Collin County residents finally have an answer about solutions to relieve congestion on US 380. Texas Department of Transportation officials are recommending a bypass for US 380 from the Denton County line to Hunt County line, according to details released at a meeting May 6 in McKinney. TxDOT's preferred alignment is a combination of its previous options, which were labeled in earlier plans as Red A, Red D and Green B.
This preferred alignment will start in Prosper along US 380's current alignment then run north between Ridge Road and Stonebridge Drive in McKinney, avoiding the Tucker Hill neighborhood. The alignment then continues east along Bloomdale Road, moves slightly north and connects with US 75 near Laud Howell Parkway. It reconnects with US 380 at Airport Drive. The alignment also connects US 380 to SH 121 west of the McKinney National Airport. The alignment also runs south of New Hope, north of Princeton and south of Farmersville.
Talk about ways to alleviate traffic congestion on US 380 began in April 2018 when TxDOT presented five proposed alignments for the roadway. Those were narrowed to two in October. In March, residents learned about two new proposed bypass segments being considered for US 380 in Collin County. TxDOT's recommended alignment is estimated to cost $2.597 billion.
Once the study is complete, a final design, construction plans and cost estimates will be determined.

Latinos are finding their economic legs under the Trump administration, leading the surge in home ownership and income growth and record low poverty rates, according to two comprehensive new surveys. While they remain far behind whites in income, they have seen their third consecutive year of income growth and have a higher workplace participation rate, according to the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals and the Hispanic Wealth Project.
In two studies just released, the groups also provided revealing details about Latinos and their growth in America. For example, by 2060, nearly one of every three in the U.S. will identify as Latino. The reports detailed Hispanic housing and economic trends and found most signs rapidly improving. What's more, the group's goal of nudging overall Hispanic income up is showing signs of success. The group said that within the next five years, Hispanic median income will triple.
The group listed the positive trends in its income report:
The Frisco school district's at-large system for electing trustees discriminates against the rapidly growing Asian population in the area, according to a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday. The voting-rights lawsuit is the third in a year against a North Texas school district, all brought by the Brewer Storefront, the pro bono affiliate of the firm Brewer, Attorneys and Counselors, which has also filed voting-rights suits against several other districts and cities. Frisco demographics have changed rapidly over the past 15 years, as it has been one of the fastest-growing communities in the state. More than 70% of the district's 13,284 students were white in the 2003-04 school year, according to state data. Now FISD has about 60,000 students, of which about 42% are white, 29% Asian and 13.5% Hispanic. (Some 11% are African-American.)
"So less than half of the children in public schools are white, but they're not able to elect any candidates of color?" said William Brewer, a partner at the storefront. "The voting is clearly polarized in Frisco."
Frisco is one of the few Texas school districts where students of Asian heritage make up a majority on some campuses. The others are Carrollton-Farmers Branch, Coppell, Plano, Fort Bend, Round Rock and Alief. The Asian population in Frisco has increased in recent years as an active word-of-mouth pipeline drew more and more families as workers from India came to work for the booming software and technology companies in the area. Then in 2008, a well-known Hindu priest blessed the land in the eastern part of the school district. Many Indian families bought homes in the area, and a Hindu temple was built.
The Brewer Storefront filed a lawsuit against the Lewisville school district in February alleging that all seven trustees there come from affluent, white neighborhoods, so students of color receive a "second-rate" education. That suit is pending. The Richardson district recently settled the voting-rights lawsuit filed against it last year. That district is moving toward five single-member districts; two board members will continue to be elected at large. In 2016, Brewer sued Coppell ISD over concerns that the Asian-American community there was being disenfranchised, but that suit was dismissed.

Dallas homes for sale put you right in the middle of one of the most vibrant communities in the United States. Dallas is rich in history, and it looks to the future, too: It has employment opportunities, schools, and the world-class amenities you'd expect from a great state capital.
Our real estate agents know everything is bigger in Texas. Whenever you're in Texas, the past comes alive. This state--the biggest in the lower 49--has some of the most sophisticated cities around, but it also captures the frontier spirit that first made it special. Even big cities like Dallas still maintain a considerable number of historic sites.
One great example is the Museum of Dallas County History and Culture.
It's the kind of place where you'll feel like you've just stepped into the story of Texas, from pre-settlement to the Old West and beyond.
The Old Red is one of the flagship museums in a state known for them. Standing right in the heart of Dallas at Dealey Plaza, the Old Red itself is a fascinating historic structure. Built back in 1892, it was initially a courthouse. Now, it stocks four floors of interactive exhibits.
Old Red is perched at one of the most momentous crossroads anywhere in Texas. It's just steps from the JFK Memorial, the Sixth Floor Museum, and the city's historic West End. Students, locals, and guests from all over the world make the Big Red part of their educational tour of beautiful Dallas.

Money is the latest national publication to sing the praises of Frisco, listing the North Texas suburb as No. 1 in its 2018 best places to live report. After compiling data on everything from school graduation rates to median home prices, the fast-growing community north of Dallas beat out 582 other communities -- many of them suburbs -- to claim the top spot. One of the highest grades in the report went to Frisco's education system. "With more than 70 campuses, the Frisco Independent School District has the highest graduation rate of all the cities and towns Money evaluated this year," the report said. Frisco's graduation rate is 98 percent.
It lists Frisco's population as about 179,000, its median family income as $129,118 and its median home price as $349,000. In explaining its methodology, the finance-focused publication looked only at places with populations of 50,000 or greater. "We eliminated any place that had more than double the national crime risk, less than 85 percent of its state's median household income, or a lack of ethnic diversity. This gave us 583 places," Money said."We put the greatest weight on economic health, public school performance, and local amenities. Housing, cost of living, and diversity were also critical components," it said. The methodology information listed online did not say how the study's authors defined "lack of ethnic diversity." Frisco's population is 75 percent white, according to Frisco.com.
Money also lauded Frisco for it public-private partnerships -- particularly the Ford Center at The Star. That athletic facility, built as part of a partnership with schools, the city and the Dallas Cowboys, doubles as a place for school football games and a practice field for the NFL team. The Star also serves as the Cowboys' headquarters.
Frisco, Allen and McKinney routinely show up on "best of" lists. In 2016, career expert website Zippia named Frisco as the most successful city in America.The only other Texas city in Money's top 25 was Flower Mound, which ranked 16th.

If you stretch your visit into the weekend, you can also experience the fast-paced thrills of NASCAR racing.
Since 1996, NASCAR fans have electrified the intersection of 35 West and Highway 114. The location was chosen for its easy highway access, and the fans show up by the thousands.

Less than 20 minutes from the heart of Dallas, the city of Irving, TX offers endless options for shopping, dining and entertainment. Some of our real estate agents' favorite spots in the DFW area can be found right here, and today we want to highlight one of the area's best restaurants – Saltgrass Steakhouse in Irving, TX.
Saltgrass Steakhouse serves Certified Angus Beef® steaks – the finest in the world – which exceeds even USDA Choice beef in taste and tenderness. The restaurant also has a lot more to offer besides steak, but let's face it. The beef is the main attraction here, and rightly so.
From Pat's Ribeye to the Silver Star Porterhouse and Maudeen's Center Cut Filet, Saltgrass Steakhouse excels when it comes to prime cuts of char-grilled beef, slathered in fresh garlic butter and seasoned with their signature Saltgrass-7 Steak Spice. Their lunch and dinner menus also offer incredible burgers, mouth-watering ribs, fresh seafood, poultry and some of the best ribs around. Besides, the appetizers, sides and desserts alone are worth making a trip for. Try the Two-Fork Cheese Cake, or the homemade beer bread, served warm with honey butter. All breads, dressings and soups are made from scratch daily.
The bar at Saltgrass Steakhouse serves up craft beer in frosty mugs, along with top shelf agave margaritas, an incredible variety of excellent cocktails and an extensive wine list. Stop in for a drink, and there's a good chance you'll be tempted to stick around for a full meal.
Saltgrass Steakhouse got its start in 1991 in Houston, and now has dozens of locations all over the country. The original location sits right alongside the legendary Salt Grass Trail, a historic route used by cattle herders in the 19th century to drive their livestock south to graze on the fertile salt grasses of the Texas Gulf Coast.
It was a journey known far and wide for producing the best beef in Texas, a tradition that Saltgrass Steakhouse carries on today. The trail ride was revived in the 1950s, and has continued to this day, becoming an annual celebration of the original Texas spirit.
The Irving, TX location of Saltgrass Steakhouse is just minutes from some of the best attractions in Irving, including Lakeview Park, the Sam Houston Trail, Luna Vista Golf Course and the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. Downtown Dallas is just 20 minutes away, and Fort worth is just a 30 minute drive.

To this day, the gardens are an architectural and engineering marvel that must be experienced firsthand.
You can explore a variety of water features as you stroll through this fascinating urban park, including three pools that are as different as they are beautiful.
Drawing visitors from all over the world, the Fort Worth Water Gardens could almost be seen as a symbol for how much Fort Worth has progressed over the years. The area that the Water Gardens now cover was once one of the most notorious red light districts in Texas, a stretch of saloons, brothels and gambling halls that earned the nickname, "Hell's Half Acre."
Today, the Fort Worth Water Gardens encompass about 4.3 acres in the heart of Fort Worth's revitalized downtown. It's within walking distance of dozens of great shops, bars and eateries and just footsteps away from landmarks like Saint Patrick Cathedral and the Fort Worth Convention Center.

There is so much to see in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, and our team is excited to tell you all about it.
How did the Fort Worth Stockyards get its start? Investor Greenlief Simpson visited Fort Worth at the request of a local businessman, found a stockyard full of cattle, and decided to invest. Little did he know that the stockyard was not normally so full, and the extra cattle were there simply due to a railroad strike mixed with some bad weather. Still, the Fort Worth Stockyards had its investor, and would soon become one of the most successful stockyards in the country. Today, you can experience more than 100 years of Fort Worth history, through guided tours or at your own leisure.
One of the best things about Fort Worth homes is that you'll never be far from a fantastic meal, and that's certainly true when you visit the Fort Worth Stockyards.

In a study released earlier this year, GoodCall, a South Carolina data analysis firm, revealed three Collin County cities--Frisco, Allen and Richardson, were among the best cities nationwide to buy forever homes. According to GoodCall, "High-ranking cities are those that generally are affordable with growing home values, growing population, low unemployment and crime rates, and an educated population. Texas is the place to go if you're looking to settle in for the long haul."
Our team at RE/MAX DFW Associates--especially our REALTORS® in Frisco--weren't too surprised with GoodCall's results. We live and work in the local area and love our community.
Let's take a look at why Frisco ranked #3 on their list.

Frisco's residents enjoy living in a community with local pride and small-town charm while being only a short drive from the excitement of living in the DFW Metroplex.
Frisco is home to a multitude of entertainment and attractions including NFL's Dallas Cowboys headquarters and training center, the FC Dallas soccer team, the Frisco RoughRiders Class AA baseball team, the Dallas Stars NHL team, and the Texas Legends.
We've got hiking trails, biking trails and parks located throughout Frisco just waiting to be explore and enjoyed. We've got an outdoor adventure waiting for you: Hiking and biking...you'll find it, taking your kids for an afternoon at the park...got that too. Frisco has received the designation as "Tree City USA" by the National Arbor Day Foundation.
Whether your tastes run from simple to sophisticated, Frisco's culinary scene offers s variety of options for any appetite. Order a burger from Kenny's Burger Joint or an Italian delight from Tavolo Italia. Indulge in Texas BBQ from 3 Stacks Smokehouse or finish the evening at Andy's Frozen Custard.
Frisco is the ultimate shopping mecca. Second only to sports in our community, shopping is one of the most popular things to do in Frisco. Visit Stonebriar Centre in North Dallas if you prefer a shopping mall experience or for the charm of boutique shopping in Frisco, visit the Blue Door Boutique or Lillian Welch.
Frisco continually racks up accolades from nationally recognized publications like CNN, Money Magazine and Men's Journal as "The Best Places to Buy a Forever Home," "One of the Best Place to Live," and even, "#1 Place to Raise an Athlete." USA Today ranked Frisco as the second safest city in Texas to live.
When you're ready to make Frisco your forever home, contact our local experts at RE/MAX DFW Associates to start your home search.

It follows the path of the man-made waterway as it joins Lake Carolyn. The Canal Walk is one of the unique features that help make the Las Colinas planned community a wonderful place to call home.
Our REALTORS® in Irving understand that the Canal Walk at Las Colinas is no secret. Still, we believe it's important to offer friendly reminders of just how beautiful and peaceful our community can be.
When you walk the canal
The Canal Walk gives you access to a beautiful ground level city view. You follow a patterned-brick path that syncs with the waterway's arcs and curves. You wander past gleaming office buildings, hotels, arched entryways, and architecture with a distinctive European flair.
Walking the path is a unique way to appreciate the Las Colinas fusion of futuristic growth and old world charm. Best of all, it's a great way to see the commercial district without traffic getting in the way.
More than just a walk
The path is tree-lined and peaceful, ideal for a solo morning walk, an afternoon lunch with coworkers, or a romantic evening stroll. Some restaurants, shops, hotels, and local entertainment venues border the walkway. Others are nearby or a doable walking distance.
As you walk, you'll also see towering buildings, floral accents, and secluded inlets with man-made waterfalls. The celebrated Mustangs of Colinas sculpture and museum are nearby as well.
