Another The Colony, TX short sale closed! The sellers avoided foreclosure, the buyers purchased a nice home at a discount, and the lender did not have the losses involved with a foreclosure. Many people feel that the nation's economy rises and falls with the housing market. While this is often true, we believe the current housing crisis is a direct result of the economic downturn and massive job loss across the nation. In the Short Sale community, the vast majority of homeowners did not get a bad loan or buy more house than they could afford; they're just good, hardworking Americans who fell on bad times. All indicators point to Short Sales being on the real estate horizon for the foreseeable future, at least through 2012, and maybe longer. We encourage homeowners across the United Stat...

Hi everyone.  I'm writing this letter to let you know I have decided to write my first blog next week.  This is an irrevocable decision.  I have been an Active Rain lurker for nearly a year, every since my Frisco, Texas real estate friends Loreena Yeo and Janeil Lester told me about AR.  I even went to Rain Camp in Dallas last month, and won a Kodak movie camera I plan to start using soon.   My next task is to decide what I should blog about.  There seem to be endless possibilities.   I could write about my lunch experience today at the Chick-fil-A in The Colony, Texas.  The place was so crowded it was hard to find a parking place, but the food was great.  The drive through line nearly stretched to the street.  And who knew Chick-fil-A hosts a Daddy Daughter Date night on the eve of Fat...

The Fire Investigator determined the cause of the fire was a faulty lawn sprinkler system control panel in the garage.  The home was monitored for burglary & fire but the smoke detectors were located in the bedrooms and halllways.  The fire had to burn through the garage & utility room before smoke finally reached the smoke detector outside the master bedroom.  Half of the home was in flames before the fire department arrived. I sold this 5 year old home to some good friends after the home was rebuilt / repaired from the fire.  Here's what I want you to think about. You pay ADT to send help quickly in an emergency.  Yet so many fire detection systems only conver half the house.   Fires that occur in the garage, laundry room, utility room and attic are not being monitored by smoke detect...

Tubes provided.  Float down river as long as you want. The hard part is deciding when it's time to leave.  There are plenty of water slides and rides to keep your heart pumping at Hawaiian Falls The Colony TX    Next year buy your family season passes and enjoy The Colony Texas summer!

178 light bulbs can create a large electric bill depending on the kind of bulbs you use. I recently sold the home pictured below that has 178 light bulbs.  It was vacant, I was doing a photo shoot and I kept flipping on light switches.  I wondered how many light bulbs are in this place? 1, 2, 3... 178 bulbs and only 6 are energy saving CFL compact florescent lights (or as my 5 yr old says: ice cream cone bulbs).  I didn't count low voltage yard lights, oven lights, under counter lights, pool lights or bulbs in the attic. I went outside and looked at the meter.  It was spinning fast enough to make me cringe. If I was buying this home what would I do?  What makes sense?  Time to blog. I don't want to spend my life on a ladder changing light bulbs.  I don't like looking up and seeing a bul...

All parents want to send their children to a good school and The Colony TX has good schools in the LISD.  Relocating home buyers ask me "how are The Colony Schools?" or how is a specific elementary school.  I start walking a tightrope.  The TAKS ratings of The Colony Schools is the only uniform measurement to compare schools so that's the best overall ranking of LISD schools.  So, yes TAKS ranking of The Colony Schools is very important simply because that it the only "apples to apple" comparison that is available.  You can go to websites like Greatschools.org who are the self proclaimed best independent source but reality is they pull info from the TAKS ratings  / tests.  Plus irate parents feel the need to vent there.  If there are 600 kids per year in an elementary school and greatsc...
Morningside Elementary School in The Colony Texas boundary map has changed shifting children to  Peters Colony Elementary and Owen Elementary.  The LISD boundary map 2010 - 2011 shows the new boundaries.    Home Buyers, If you are looking at The Colony TX homes for sale and want your child to attend Morningside Elementary School you need to verify the MLS accuracy as there are unintentional errors by listing agents. Over the 2010 summer Lewisville Independent School District LISD made Elementary School boundary map changes for Morningside Elementary, Peters Colony Elementary and Owen Elementary.  The 2 Middle school boundaries have not changed in 2010.  The Colony High School is the only high school.   Morningside Elementary School boundaries reside inside of the Legends Subdivision in ...
