Murphy Porch Sitting - one never knows who they will find sitting on the front porch rocking away the hours this time of the year. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! There's something to delight everyone in the front yard of this home. These homeowners in the Ranch are well-known in the neighborhood for all their holiday decorations.

Murphy TX Homes Have Fireplaces   Most of the homes in Murphy TX have fireplaces. Yes, even in North Central Texas we do enjoy a warm, roaring fire especially on cold, wintry nights such as the one coming up tonight. I am thankful to have such a home that does have a fireplace and a hearth to sit on while I enjoy the warmth of the fire.

Home sales in Murphy TX continue strong with 18 homes already reported as sold on the local MLS records during the month of October. Other home sales such as FSBO - For Sale By Owner or newly built homes are not always reflected in the MLS data. Sometimes the number of sold properties can change because of a delay in the administrative task of updating a lising from one status to another. What the numbers do tell us is that the home sales in Murphy are actively ongoing which is good news for anyone who is looking to sell or move to Murphy. As a local agent in the Murphy area I am here to help you. The average sales price was $333,345 and 27 calendar days on the market. The neighborhood of the Ranch tops out the month with 4 homes sold. If you would like to know how your neighborhood rat...

There is so much to enjoy while living in the City of Murphy TX. One of its many benefits is the recycle options offered like the one today. It was a huge success even if I were to speak for only one household. Residents were able to recycle a variety of items including some old fence sections...hehe. The recycle site was well-laid out around the Municipal buildings. Plus there were plenty of hands available to help unload residents' items. Our household's paper shredding needs were caught up and now home is a little less cluttered. Thank you City of Murphy for hosting Keep the City Murphy TX Beautiful!   Come home to Murphy where living in a small community has its rewards.

The Storm's Edge: Murphy, TX Today's photograph is a vivid reminder that Spring has arrived. Not often do I have the opportunity to observe the storm's edge. It was an impressive site as the clouds rolled across the sky of Murphy in Collin County, Texas. As they continued their journey towards the east the light, blue sky of Murphy with fluffs of white clouds appeared. A reminder of sorts that this Spring season will pass and the countryside of Murphy will yield its wildflowers and green, green grass. On this Tuesday I treaure the blessings of the rain, the coming of the flowers and a beautiful place to call home. Murphy, TX It's a Good Life!
