A Conversation with Dream Street Realtor Jeannie Anderson


One of Fort Worth Magazine three 2020 Dream Street homes, built side-by-side at the end of a cul-de-sac in the luxury Oxford Place development in Southlake, are already under contract to be sold. All three homes are expected to be completed in late summer and open for tours in October to benefit Wish with Wings, our official charity. Realtor Jeannie Anderson has contracted builder Jon Atwood’s one-story, 6,000-square-foot home; it is listed at $ 3.2 million. Anderson, who works for Compass, which owns listings for Oxford Place’s 11 lots, including the other two Dream Homes, sat down for a question-and-answer session with the luxury market magazine in the Southlake Hallway -Westlake-Colleyville.

POSSIBLE BUYER OF ATWOOD HOUSE

“The potential buyer contacted because he wanted to build a house. When you step into that $ 3 million price tag, they want it made to measure, and they know exactly what they want. Their agent, my builder and I walked a lot in Oxford Place. We started talking about Dream Home. [Husband and wife] have two pairs of twins. She is a doctor. The way the house is laid out is ideal. Its a story. They are going to make some changes. Plus, they can save time without having to design a house.

IMPORTANCE OF UNIQUE HISTORY

“I think it was pretty important to them. A lot of people love that feeling of a story right now. [With the aging of the population], we are seeing more and more people prefer a single story if it can be done. The only reason this cannot be done is if they have smaller batches and need to increase. [All Oxford Place lots are one acre.]

MARKET STRENGTH IN COVID-19

“The market is really good here. We certainly have an increase in contract listings right now. Compass in general has seen a 40% increase in homes that are either under contract or sold this year, compared to around the same time last year. With COVID-19, we just changed some of our strategies. We said we are doing more live virtual tours. We have started to have virtual open houses. I’m selling to someone in UK right now via video. We have resumed and increased paperless transactions. We really haven’t slowed down. The only thing that slowed down was when we couldn’t open a house.

INCREASED BUYER INTEREST FOR REDUCED DENSITY AMID COVID-19

“People searches for single family homes have tripled, instead of condominiums and city living. We have seen an increase in the number of people looking for outdoor spaces and in suburbs with swimming pools. I think COVID-19 scared people a bit and pushed us more into family life. [Interest in] city ​​life has diminished a bit, and you’ve seen more [interest in] living in the suburbs.

MARKET CONDITIONS

“Southlake, Westlake, it’s still strong. In Southlake, there are 127 assets [listings] on MLS right now. Year to date, [MLS shows] already more than 200 Southlake [listings] who have already sold. There are a lot of things wrong with MLS. I have 10 houses that never achieved MLS because they are new. Southlake average selling price is $ 970,000. Westlake has 47 assets [listings], 11 sold or pending since January. $ 2.5 million on average [sold price]. “

In Colleyville, Compass has listings for lots and construction jobs in the Oakleigh neighborhood, home of Showcase Home magazine in Colleyville last year. “You’re probably about 60-75 days in the market. I sold $ 1.6, $ 1.7, $ 1.8 million [for lot and home]. The prices have been strong. You get a couple of builders who care [because of the start of the summer season], but it was still strong. Out of 23 lots, we are probably down to nine lots.

SUPPLY OF LOTS

“The lots are limited. We have been a bit isolated for a little while. When we get a subdivision like Oxford that has one acre lots, it’s such a rare opportunity. We probably have two subdivisions that have one acre lots all over Southlake.

THE PRICE OF DREAM STREET OF 3 MILLION DOLLARS

“It’s not that unusual. In Southlake, you really can’t build less than $ 325 per square foot. In Westlake, it’s probably closer to $ 400 per square foot.
