Former Home of Jack's of Dallas8307 Preston Road near Northwest Highway There is a historic site in Dallas that isn’t noted on Google, and I couldn’t find any mention of the man who built from scratch what became an iconic and copied men’s barber shop. Before you pass judgment, please hear me out. He was Jack Pitts and his fancy men’s hair salon was named Jack’s of Dallas. Prior to Jack's of Dallas, for years and years, white men’s hairdos were reduced to about five styles:  white walls, tapered, DAs, crew, and butch cuts.  Men like Bill Haley of Bill Haley and the Comets had slight adaptations – Haley had a hair squiggle that hung down on his forehead – but in the main, you went into the barber shop and picked white wall, tapered, DA, crew or butch.  And you hoped the barber hadn't ma...

There is a large suburb known as the Park Cities, which is actually made up of both Highland Park and University Park neighborhoods, which are two very affluent and popular neighborhoods that claim a great deal of high profile residents. The Park Cities is a neighborhood that is known for eloquent shopping malls that are supreme to the others of the city, and offer a more upscale shopping experience. The neighborhood also holds a great deal of the most expensive real estate within Dallas, with the Southern Methodist University and its 11,000 students as well. The neighborhood is found to the north of Downtown Dallas, and to the east of the famed Love Field. What brings a great deal of attention to the area as well, is that it is the former home of the previous President of the U.S. Geor...

While the reported numbers are all we have by which to go, just like the unemployment numbers, the true number of homes for sale is a mystery. The homes for sale statistics have become congruent with the unemployed numbers in one respect - at least they have in Dallas. Many homes that showed up in the Multiple Listing Service as For Sale saw their listing expire and not be renewed or relisted with another broker. Instead, the owners have decided to stay put, or the home has become a member of the lease pool. With the For Sale signs down, it's easy for those driving the neighborhood streets to assume things there are better than they really are.  A neighborhood I'm familiar with One Dallas home in exclusive Highland Park, originally listed for about $3.5 million, now reduced to just abov...

For a number of years, the State of Texas has had in effect a law that allows homeowners who are 65-years old or older, or who are disabled, to defer paying all of their property taxes. Income does not restrict the ability to qualify,  The only restriction is that the home must be the person's homestead, and that accrued taxes and interest come due 1) when the house is sold or 2) when it is no longer the homestead. As long as one party to the home's title is 65-years old or older, the homeowners qualify for this deferral of annual payment.  Consult your tax adviser or attorney to see how this tax deferral might benefit you.   BILL CHERRY, REALTORS DALLAS - PARK CITIES Since 1964 214 503-8563

One could spend a great deal of time gathering and analyzing the statistical information that can be acquired by members of the Multiple Listing Service that serves Dallas.  I'm especially interested in what goes on in the Dallas Park Cities, more specifically within two zip codes - 75205 which primarily serves Highland Park, and 75225 which primarily serves University Park.  And they are interesting to compare and contrast. Today, Saturday, January 29, 2011, here's what I learned as I called up those properties that are on the market now, and those that have sold within the past 6 months for $1,000,000 or more: Highland Park In Highland Park, there are 96 homes listed for sale.  The most expensive is $16,000,000.  There have been 49 homes sold since July 2010 with the most expensive be...
