Mid Century in Florida Round Two
source:  Plastolux

Mid century in Florida round two, so what was round one? The Ellison Residence by Gene Leedy but honestly this should be round three. We have featured this house twice before,  Mid Century Florida  and  The Ellison Residence . Christopher Florentino the current and newest owner of the home snapped some photos for us soon after he moved in. He just recently had his home professionally shot and I am a sucker for some pro photos. The photos were taken by  Dan Chavkin , you really need to visit his site. He has some stunning photography of some amazing mid century modern homes. Sorry for the repeat post on the same house but these photos were so good I couldn't resist.

Deborah Zlotsky - Artist
Source: Plastolux

Artist Deborah Zlotsky works have grabbed my heart and my mind with her stunning architecture/constructive paintings. I ran across her work on Instagram and am "all in", I don't know what that really means but after you go through these pieces maybe you can add your own thoughts in the comments below. Not only are the shapes and construction captivating but the color combinations make for a piece that one could look at everyday.

"I'm interested in how a cycle of construction, accumulation, rupture, and repair creates a system. As I work, I follow detours and choose contingencies within a syntax of shapes, stripes, planes, the static of paint drips, abrasions, and stains, and trompe l'oeil supports that act like small prosthetics within the pictorial space. Each painting materializes out of a friction between intention and coincidence, much like the daily processing and deciphering required to be in the world." - Deborah Zlotsky

Real Estate Outlook 2018 - North Texas  Home Sales Continue to Cool

  • Agents sold 8,260 preowned homes in September, a 7% decrease from September 2017.
  • Year-to-date existing home sales are now flat with the same period of 2017; a record of over 106,000 existing homes were sold in 2017.
  • Higher mortgage rates and years of rising home prices have caused some buyers to retreat from market.
  • Inventory of available homes increased 16%, but still represents only a 3-month supply; 6 months is considered a balanced market.
As you can see in the enclosed report, it appears our housing market is also changing a little with the season. After several years of an almost unsustainable home sales pace, the market is cooling a bit. That's not a bad thing as increases in the average sales price for most ranges slows down, and we enjoy a slight uptick in the number of homes available to prospective buyers.

That's important because thousands of people continue to move into North Texas every month. In fact, the Urban Land Institute and PricewaterhouseCoopers just cited the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex as the top market in the country in 2019 for overall real estate growth, prospects and liquidity. Key factors such as rates of job and population growth, vibrant lifestyle and a productive and educated workforce contributed to this ranking.

You can remain confident in your investment in a North Texas area home! And, if you or anyone you care about needs additional information about buying or selling real estate n today's climate, feel free to contact me!
