Ebby Listings Among HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt Finalists


Without even trying, you can easily sabotage an entire day’s to-do list by sitting down with “a little” HGTV, whether broadcast, magazine or social media. So many gorgeous homes, so many exotic locations, so much inspiration!

This year, five homes in North Texas have been chosen as HGTV’s 2021 Ultimate House Hunt finalists. And all five are under the Ebby Halliday Companies umbrella. Coincidence? Hardly. It’s more like … Connections!

Not just any home can be considered for the annual competition. To add an element of exclusivity, HGTV partners with Luxury Portfolio International, and only member-company properties are eligible for consideration. 

You see, the Ebby Halliday Companies are a founding member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a global network of 565 vetted firms with 130,000 sales associates able to share listings with prospects around the world. LPI is LeadingRE’s members-only luxury property marketing program. So only the best of the best make the cut (i.e., no chance that a ‘WTF Wednesday’ feature could accidentally be crowned winner).

There are eight categories of listings in the Ultimate House Hunt. The local 2021 finalists are:

  • Downtown Dwellings
    • Downtown Dallas Penthouse Swathed in Luxurious Neutral Tones – listed by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate
  • Outdoor Escapes Category
    • Luxurious Texas Home is an Outdoor Wonderland – listed by Ebby Halliday (Sold)
  • Amazing Kitchens
    • Glam Kitchen Shines With Crystal Pendants – listed by Ebby Halliday (Sold)
  • Curb Appeal
    • Contemporary Curb Appeal With Clean Lines and Trailing Vines – listed by Williams Trew
  • Homes With a History
    • Texas Victorian With a Second-Story Ballroom – listed by Williams Trew

Voting takes place now through August 4, and you can vote daily for your favorites in each of the eight categories. After you vote, be sure to enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win $10,000! 

If you’d like to say you live in an HGTV Ultimate House Hunt Finalist home, you better hurry. The two Ebby Halliday Realtors’ listings have already sold since the contest began. But three are still available and waiting to become the winner of your heart!

Having celebrated 75 years of service in 2020 to North Texans and those moving to the region, the Ebby Halliday Companies are No. 1 in Texas by sales volume. The Ebby Halliday Companies were acquired in 2018 by HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate and the country’s largest residential real estate company based on transactions in 2020. 

The Ebby Halliday Companies’ real estate brands include Ebby Halliday Realtors, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and Williams Trew. Its core-services brands include Prosperity Home Mortgage, Home Team Insurance, Texas Premier Title and HSTX Title

‘Tis the Season to Sell Your Home


Christmas Decorations At Front Door of House.

Contrary to popular belief, the holiday season – especially this holiday season – may actually be an ideal time to offer your North Texas home for sale! Why?

  • The average home sales price in North Texas is up almost 15 percent over this time last year.
  • Interest rates are at historic lows, which means buyers have more buying power than ever before.
  • Inventory of homes for sale remains at historic lows while showing activity is still tracking higher than this same time last year. 
  • Many people are still working from home, which means a lot of them may want more space, home offices, or just a change of scenery. Combined with lighter work schedules and less (anticipated) travel during the holidays, prospective buyers may use the extra time to search for a new home. 
  • Consumers who shop for a home during the holidays are serious, motivated buyers.
  • Typically there are even fewer homes on the market during the holiday season. Translation: less competition for you.
  • Homes “show” better when decorated for the holidays.
  • Many transferees are not able to wait until the spring market to buy. They are here now and need a home now.
  • By selling now, you’ll have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, when many more houses will be for sale, which may mean lower prices. This could allow you to sell high and buy low.
