Dallas Housing Market Is Hot! Home Values Are Up 8.6% and REALTORS Are Selling Like Crazy!
By Alex
June 6, 2017

        It is hot right now!  Both the Texas summer heat and the Dallas Housing Market!  New reports came out yesterday about the home values and they have risen 8.6%.  It is only 6 months into 2017 and we are already off to a good start.  The previous year was up 11.1% for 2016!  

        Families are relocating to Dallas on a daily basis.  This is what is helping a lot with such a large growth.  Businesses are moving their headquarters here becasue of low taxes.  That is attributing to so many jobs.  Also, the weather is fairly mild compared to the blizzards an hurricanes on the East Coast.  New home builders, REALTORS, and the economy are all loving this massive growth in the Dallas housing market.  This is one of the best times to be selling homes.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

Dallas Is Booming With Luxury Real Estate On Every Corner!
By Alex
June 2, 2017

        Hop in your car, drive around, and what do you see?  Luxury homes for sale everywhere!  By now we all know that Dallas is where all the job are moving.  California was the place for jobs and growth back in the day, but now Texas is the new boom.  Dallas imparticular.  With that comes a lot of new or renovated homes.  Values are rising and that means luxury homes are starting to multiply like wild fire. 

       A luxury home has to be over $725,000 to be considered a luxury home.  Now that can vary slightly.  There are many homes right around that amount and boast so many bells and whistles.  With kitchens, bathrooms, and pools to die for.  Yes, it is hot in Texas during the summer, but that doesn't slow down our real estate market one bit this time of the year.  So I have been kicking it into high gear.  I have had more phone calls latley from buyers wanting a luxury piece of real estate to call home.  So I have been on the hunt in Dallas, Frisco, and Plano trying to find the big winner for numerous clients.  

       With a luxury price tag comes luxury wants and needs.  That means my job just got a little harder.  Luckily homes in that price list tend to check all the boxes on the list.  In the Dallas Metroplex when you start to get close to that $725,000 price point, the homes tend to get more and more picture perfect.  So that makes my job a little easier.  I love looking for luxury homes in the Dallas Metroplex since there are so many to choose from.  Nothing is better then finding my clients the home of their dreams.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

How To Become A Top Realtor In Dallas
By Alex
May 24, 2017

Being a Top Realtor in Dallas is no easy task.  I still have a long ways to go to compete with some of the top dogs in Dallas.  Last year I was "Rookie Of The Year" and voted "Best Business Dallas for Real Estate 2015".  I'm on my way to becoming the Top Realtor at Coldwell Banker Dallas.  I couldn't be happier.  

I have 6 closings scheduled over the next 3 weeks and 2 potential listings.  Real Estate is a little crazy right now.  I wish I was an octopus sometimes so I could handle all my clients.  Yet, I still manage to give all of them special attention.  Even if it means referring them to someone that will have their back covered.  I would rather refer them to another real estate agent if I know I can not give the 100% of my time.  The ball is rolling non stop and I hope it keeps going.  For the past 2 years I have been grinding my little tail off.  Working from sun up to sun down.  It has been non stop.  I finallly have found what works and what doesnt.  I had to make some cuts and take some risks.  Taking the risks is the most exciting.  I like the unexpected.

Everyday is something new.   Today I went to the gym at the crack of dawn, returned home, as soon as I walked in the door I got a call from a client, wrote an offer in 20 minutes, and got an executed contract within the matter of an hour...insaine!  That it the type of market that we are in right now.  I want to keep on pecking away so I can be one of the Top Realtors in Dallas.  Nothing would make me happier than being a power house.  All I can do is give it my best, remember to stay humble, and never give up.  May is the best month in my 2 years as a real estate agent.  Lets keep it going!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs!

New Homes Directory Dallas Hires Alex Prins To Run Their Real Estate Blog
By Alex
May 20, 2017

        Everyone loves new homes!  And not just a new listing or one that you have recently moved into.  What I am talking about is new construction homes.  Ones that have been built from the ground up with every square inch of the home built to your specific wants and needs, and if your thinking about buying one then you have come to the right place!    

        Dallas and the surrounding cities like Frisco and Plano are growing out of control with new builder communities.  The homes are beatuiful and priced pretty competitive.  There are currently over 30 different new home communities in the Dallas/DFW Metroplex.  Some of the builders include Peter Shaddock, David Weekly, Lennar, Toll Brothers, and many more.  Recently, I was hired by New Homes Directory to write blog posts for them.  So let's just say I am a little more brushed up on new construction homes.  

        The past few weekends I have been in Frisco showing new homes.  Sometimes I think I am more excited about seeing the homes rather then my clients.  As a trusted real estate expert, New Home Directory has chosen me to blog about new construction, the real estate market, local developments in Dallas, what's going on in my daily real estate life, and much more.  I am so excited!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.
