Grand Vie Puts Spotlight on Luxury Home Market


 Grand Vie Puts Spotlight on Luxury Home Market

 

The spring 2017 edition of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine recently mailed to homes across the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Grand Vie is the luxury-home publication of Ebby Halliday Realtors and the newest member of the Ebby Halliday Companies, Fort Worth-based Williams Trew Real Estate.

 

The perfect-bound publication is direct-mailed to approximately 60,000 high-net-worth households in Dallas, Collin, Rockwall and Tarrant counties. Charity and event placement is also a significant part of the Grand Vie distribution strategy – placing luxury homes listed by Ebby Halliday and Williams Trew in front of North Texas’ luxury homebuying audience.

 

As the magazine’s market update feature, “Spotlight on the Dallas-Fort Worth Luxury Market,” points out, the North Texas region’s substantial economic growth has brought growth in luxury home sales. In the past year, 9 percent more homes priced at $750,000 and above have been purchased than during the prior 12 months, according to North Texas Real Estate Information Systems, Inc. MLS statistics. Luxury home sales are up 4.3 percent in Dallas County, 17.3 percent in Collin County, and 8.2 percent in Tarrant County.

 

In addition to featuring some of Dallas-Fort Worth’s premier luxury properties, the 22nd edition of Grand Vie offers a plethora of interesting editorial content, including a conversation with Dallas-born and raised fine-art photographer Gray Malin; advice on how to bring spring looks into your home from partner and designer of IBB Design Fine Furnishings Shay Geyer; “Houses of Art,” highlighting some of the area’s top cultural events of the season; LuxeTrends, showcasing a collection of the latest luxury lifestyle must-haves; and real estate insider Candy Evans’ take on the Cultural Capital of Florida: Sarasota.

Hot Start for 2015 Luxury Market

 

Luxury Portfolio International members are starting the new year off with a bang, making headlines for such noteworthy sales as baseball-great Jeff Bagwell’s Houston home (John Daugherty Realtors), a $16.7 million waterfront residence in Hillsboro Beach, FL – the second highest sale in the history of Broward Country – (Premier Estate Properties) and, most recently, New York affiliate Laffey Fine Homes delivered the anonymous Chinese buyer of a 100-acre estate in Muttontown, NY for a cool $20 million.

 

All signs point to a great year for Luxury Portfolio members, who continue to distinguish themselves as the best in the business when it comes to results. It’s worth mentioning that among the many significant sales of 2014, the year was capped off with the highest-recorded sale in the history of Beverly Hills (Hilton & Hyland).

 

If you’re in the market for a luxury home, the good news is that you can find 20,000 of the most extraordinary properties around the globe on luxuryportfolio.com.
