It has just been released today that the city of Grapevine hosts its fireworks extravaganza from a new location. The free 30-minute fireworks spectacular is still on and the show begins at 9:30pm.  However, due to remaining elevated lake levels at Grapevine Lake, the launch location has been relocated this year. The new launch location will be near Great Wolf Lodge, at the intersection of State Highway 26 and Texan Trail, allowing spectators to view the show from many public parking lots throughout Grapevine. Click on the link below to  view map  of public parking locations.

Real Estate Market Trends for Grapevine Texas 2018                              I wanted to share some valuable information regarding recent statistics for the Grapevine, Texas real estate market.  As a local agent and home owner it's imperative to be on top of the market.   Recent stats reflect growing inventory, number of sales declining and longer days-on-market.   Inventory has been so low for so long we’re hoping to see a continued increase.   We’re not getting the number of showings we’ve had in the past and not as many multiple offers.  These stats are indicators of the market; so, if you’ve been on the fence about selling now is the time.  Otherwise, it could be several years before we see another “seller’s market”.   For the past few years they've been saying that 2018 would be...

Gaylord Hotel, Grapevine Texas (near Dallas) Lone Star Atrium I'm at the Gaylord Hotel for the CRS Sellabration in Grapevine TX, a few miles from DFW Airport. I did some exploring after sitting on a plane for a few hours to check out the Lone Star Atrium (the larger of the 3) at the hotel.  Pretty amazing scenery - you need a GPS to find your way around.  Looking forward to some excellent eduation great networking, and the CRS/ActiveRain MEet-up tonight in the Silver Bar near the lobby.
