I’m sure I don’t need to remind anyone that its tax season…the time of year when home owners are pointedly reminded about some of the great benefits of home ownership. If you’re a homeowner with a loan you’re probably actually a little thankful right now for those monthly mortgage payments that include deductible interest and your property taxes because you’re seeing how those things positively impact your tax liability. If you’re not a homeowner right now, just think, this time next year you could be deducting taxes, interest, and a good chunk of your closing costs on that house you buy, some very nice tax implications.
Another benefit of home ownership is often a yard where you can enjoy your pets. Don’t have a pet? Well, you’re in luck; we’re full service here at JP and Associates. A friend in McKinney just rescued the 9 year old Chocolate Lab pictured above. He’s reported to be very sweet (“he’s all about the love”) but just a bit of an infringement on the other two male dogs that are already in residence or else he would probably be staying with his rescuer.
Back to the topic of homes and McKinney, here are some first quarter home stats from the Collin County Board of Realtors for housing activity in McKinney:
Homes Sold January - March: 412
Average Sales Price: $221,439
Average Days on Market: 72
Yes, things are definitely picking up in the housing market. If it’s time to buy a home (whether you’re interested in McKinney, Frisco, Allen, Anna, Melissa or anywhere else in Collin County), or you want to give a home to this sweet Chocolate Lab...or both...call me, I’d love to help!

"We want to thank Mayra Ruiz for everything she did for us! If you are looking for a realtor there is no one else I would recommend you to go to other than her! We were those types of clients who ended up on a roller coaster type journey in our home buying process. She gracefully rode that roller coaster with us! Her recommendation to write a letter to the sellers expressing our reasons for wanting to purchase their house was genius and REALLY worked, especially when the sellers had more than one option of buyers to go with. Thank you Mayra for everything and thank you for helping us find our dream home! -"
