There’s a new social media in town that has set the internet on fire. Yes, I’m talking about Pinterest. Those of you who are already addicted to its appeal know exactly what I mean. However, there are still some who haven’t experienced the phenomenon.
The days of clipping recipes, articles and pictures from magazines are over. Pinterest is an online bulletin board, filled with all of your favorites things. You should think of it as memorabilia, reminders, things to do and things you love.
I’ve just recently joined the masses. One thing I’ve learned: I never knew I had such expensive taste. The site is a great way to save ideas for your future home, future family and future holidays.
It’s a sharing community with little chit chat. Dig in and start pinning! I’d love to have you follow me ~ I’m trying to grow my creative side. :) Click the link below and let the fun begin!

Everyone thinks it’s spring – February 2012 home sales in North Texas were up 27% over previous year! This is the largest gain we’ve seen in years.
As a real estate professional, I have felt a shift in the momentum for home sales since October 2011, but it went full-swing in January & February. It seems as though people are feeling more confident about our local economy and as a result, they are taking advantage of these home prices and still historically low interest rates.
According to the multiple listing service, North Texas real estate professionals sold 4,649 single-family homes in February. Sellers are once again finding themselves with multiple offers on their homes, and buyers are finding that the good ones ‘really are moving quickly’. Our local market is buzzing with activity, and it has a motivating effect on many!
And even more good news, it’s been reported that North Texas pre-owned home sales are up 20% in 2012 from the same period last year. This is a great indicator for sellers, who often have to compete with builders in the area.
These reports are encouraging and should give everyone a much-needed boost! If you’re planning to buy or sell in North Texas, contact me and let’s talk about your plans.
