  1. Went to the UT research site this week and passed up a block of town homes going in. This part of Buffalo Speedway is actually coming together nicely. COH extended Buffalo Speedway over a bayou.
  2. There are 15 townhomes planned where Sudden Impact stands (the portion of the property that sits behind the planned West Gray Plaza). The area is bounded by Valentine/Victor/Helena, and the planned West Gray Plaza to the south (as well as West Gray St).
  3. Does anyone have any opinions on Urban Living's sales tactics? I thought I was in a timeshare boilerroom when I looked at a couple of their properties. I've bought a lot of properties and never been treated with such a "hard sale" group.
  4. Sorry, no idea how to phrase the topic because I have a lot of questions. 1. Urbanliving.com - we are thinking about working with them. However I have read it is urbanliving.com, and not the builder, who you deal with for post-walkthrough fixes???? Can anyone on here verify that? Does not sound promising. 2. How does new construction in Houston work? We are not using a Realtor (I am a lawyer). In theory, doesn't that mean we should be able to negotiate 2-3% extra off the price? Or do enough people not use Realtors that sellers ignore that bargaining tool? Does this differ if it is not new construction? 3. Anyone heard of Titan Homes? We really like one of theirs, but their website is hardly helpful: http://titandevelopments.com/TitleMenu/About%20Us.htm 4. Is it true that lenders charge .25% more for condos and townhomes? Thanks in advance!
  5. Has anyone happened to notice the 8-10 story condos going up on the east side of Montrose at West Gray (a couple blocks north of Dallas)? I haven't seen any postings about it, but there are several things to like: 1. Location is appropriate, since it is a midrise on a major street 2. Extends dense housing north almost to Allen Parkway 3. The front is close to the street (even if the parking extends all the way to the back of the block) It is not remarkable looking, but it is a great building block (pardon the pun). It should attract a much more conservative buyer than some of the other crazy stuff that has gone up in Montrose. This is the kind of buidling design I have imagine for West Gray between Shepherd and Dunlavy. It has a lot of shopping, which I think would be really attractive to insert some dense housing into. It is actually kind of strange that no one has tried . . . other than Randall Davis, but I think he missed the market, which should be River Oaks residents who want to get rid of their yards. With just a few buildings among the shops, it would be a very interesting, 24-hour area . . .
